With winter and holiday parties upon us, I'm all for easy breezy hairstyles that will have me out the door in 15 minutes flat. After all, since it's the holiday season I'll likely be fussing over my outfit and shoe choices, so I might as well have something easy going for me, right? So, I've teamed up with Aussie to put some of my favorite products to work creating a super simple look that even my husband can do. If you haven't used any Aussie products yet, you need to. You can grab them on Amazon ( It's a great opportunity to put your Amazon Prime membership to good use aside from binge watching shows and buying sweet cell phone cases). 
For my look I used three Aussie products and a handful of bobby pins. It took about 20 minutes from start to finish because I had to blow my hair out and give it a little tousle. 

I started by washing my hair with Aussie Total Miracle Collection 7N1 Shampoo.

 Instead of following up with the Aussie Total Miracle Collection 7N1 Conditioner, I used the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Strong Conditioning Treatment for an extra boost of moisture. It's a quick little dry hair treatment that actually works. Try it!

I don't often use gel, but surprisingly enough it's a really good tool when you need your hair to have a little structure and some maneuverability. Tip: A little goes a long way to use a tiny, tiny bit to avoid the 'crunchy' curl look. I used about a dime size of Aussie Instant Freeze Sculpting Hair Gel and applied it to my wet hair. I blew it out like normal, gave my hair a few subtle waves and moved on to the actual style. You can skip the waves and go straight or add tighter curls to work with.

First, I parted and separated a 2" wide piece of hair from my crown and divided it into two. I twisted the pieces and secured to the back center of my head with a bobby pin. Repeat on other side. 

Next, I pulled a similar sized piece from directly under the pins and divided the piece into two. I twisted each piece together to create a knot like bun. Secure with bobby pins and spritz with hairspray if it feels loose. 

Voila! A quick and easy hairstyle using Aussie!
