7 Easy Hairstyles To Try This Week

Minimum fuss, maximum style


If you’re like me, getting ready for work in the morning is always a mad rush. This also means that I’m wearing my hair the same way every day – natural and loose, or to put it more accurately, un-styled.

Time to get ourselves out of the hairstyle rut! With a little planning in advance and some hair ties and bobby pins, these quick and effective ideas will help us achieve a different look each day of the week. Read on to check them out.

Half-up Bun

Also known as the hun, this super easy idea works for any hair length. Just gather the top section of your hair, tie it into a loose knot on the top of your head and loosen some strands for a sexy, messy style.

Natural Waves

Use a texturising spray on towel-dried locks to create sexy, I-woke-up-like-this waves. 

Elevated Ponytail

Have a last minute formal event to attend after work? Add interest to a simple ponytail by wrapping it in gilded threads for an instantly elegant finish.

The Loop

You can recreate this look with your eyes closed – pull your hair into a low ponytail and instead of going all the way through, stop halfway and loop the end in the hair elastic.

Messy Bun

A saviour for bad hair days: Simply work with your unruly tresses and make a messy bun out of it.

Classic Wrap

This one is an all-time fave – after securing your hair into a ponytail with a hair tie, wrap a section of your hair around the elastic to conceal it. Smooth on some serum for extra shine.

Boho Braids

A teeny, tiny braid takes literally seconds to create – but can add an off-duty, boho-chic touch to your casual Friday look.
