Depending on your hair type, you may not have to wash your hair every day. In fact, sometimes going a few days without washing your hair can benefit your scalp. Some days, you may just get lazy and not want to wash your hair at all. VALLEY is here with some easy go-to styles for days when you roll out of bed with a less-than salon-quality hairstyle.
Buns are one of the easiest hairstyles to create because they work for many lengths and shapes of hair, and they can be worn in many different ways. Throwing your hair into a messy top knot, a low bun, two chic space buns or a half-bun can keep your hair off your neck or face.
To put your hair into a bun, section off the area of hair that you are putting up, whether it be all of your hair or only part of it, and gather it into one section. If your hair is difficult to smooth out or work with, use a comb to bring the hair together and work out any bumps. Then, twist the hair until it forms the shape of a bun. Secure your hair with an elastic. Bobby pins are a great tool to tuck any runaway strands of hair back into your bun. You can form tighter, neater buns or messy, flowing buns depending on your style. You also may choose to use a few pieces of hair in the front to frame your face. To accessorize your bun, you can add clips, small braids or a headband.
Hats are not only a great accessory that work for all lengths of hair but they also cover a dirty scalp better than any other style. Wearing a hat with a brim helps keep the skin on your face protected from the sun’s UV rays. Now that the weather is getting colder, a hat can keep your head and ears warm throughout the fall and winter. Baseball caps, trucker caps, bucket hats or beanies are easy to style your hair with. With a hat, wear your hair down or up. A ponytail, bun or braided style can keep your hair secure.
Like buns, there are a variety of ways to wear your hair in braids. There are french braids, dutch braids, a simple braid or the trendy bubble braid. Accessorizing braids with clips or barrettes can add a pop of color or sparkle to your hair. With your hair off your neck and ears, braids also offer an opportunity to express your style by wearing jewelry or showing off a killer makeup look. Combining braided styles with buns or ponytails can allow you to create your own unique hairstyle.
Clips can be a method of self-expression and a sweet pop of color that can match any outfit. Clips can accessorize your hair when it is down or up, and they are often used for their function just as much as they are used for fashion. Wear clips with designs, shapes or colors that make you happy. Barrettes, butterfly clips or claw clips keep your hair out of your face if you are working, studying, cooking or just going about your day. You can find hair clips and other hair accessories at many of your favorite stores like Amazon, Princess Polly or Etsy.
