Trend Bite: How To Get Ready In Under 2 Minutes (PopSugar Exclusive!)

on air style expert jessie holeva with pop sugar tv


Hello and Happy Friday! By the end of the week I am exhausted and care slightly less about my appearance. That means I’ll hit the snooze button a few too many times and will be left with no time to get ready. That’s why I have a hyper-speed process so I can be out the door in minutes. I’m not saying this is my preferred method (which would be having a team of people on hair, makeup, wardrobe, dare to dream!) but it gets me looking acceptable to face society without wasting time. I used this method earlier this week when I overslept an hour for an audition, so I highly recommend having an abridged routine down to a science.

Leslie Mann’s Emmy Look for Less

It’s officially fall so yellow was not the color choice I expected on the red carpet. Stars like Claire Danes and Julianne Moore opted for the sunshine color and I gotta say, I’m now really craving some more yellow in my closet. A long gown doesn’t really fit into my regular life, but Leslie Mann’s look would work for brunch or the farmers’ market.

Her dress was Naeem Khan for Spring 2013, but you can snag a similar look by pairing a crochet top with a yellow maxi and some turquoise baubles. Add a top knot to to really top it off.

Top Knot Easy Updo

A cool updo is often really complicated. It takes tons of hair pins, styling products, and skill. Honestly, when I want to wear my hair up, it’s because I need it out of my face and my mop of hair just is not cooperating.

My fave trendy updo of the moment is a top knot – a high bun with a hint of disheveling. It looks carefree and it can be done when you’re short on time. And isn’t that the whole point of wearing your hair up?

Here’s Hilary Duff sporting a high bun with a bit of messiness. To achieve this look fasten hair in high ponytail, separate hair into two to three sections and braid into separate braids. Next, take the braids and twist around ponytail base to form a bun shape and fasten with a hair tie. Finish up style by pinning down any pieces that need extra help staying in place. Add a bit of hair spray and don’t worry if a few hairs around your face do their own thing. It adds to the look.

To achieve Keri Russell’s simpler bun start off with a high ponytail, leaving behind the short strays. Separate ponytail into two sections. Twirl each section then wrap sections around the ponytail base, fasten with a hair tie, and bobby pin hair that are sticking up. Lightly spray with a hair spray to hold style.

All the things needed to make a messy top knot are probably already in your bathroom. If not, don’t fret. Bobby pins, hairspray and hair ties can be found at your local grocery store, pharmacy or super-saving stores like Walmart.
