As we are all confined to our homes, working from home in our PJs, a well-secured bun has become the ultimate comfort hair. Experimenting beyond the messy buns just seems like a lot of work. Now, we know you have been hustling hard and mornings are tough. But sprucing up your hair game might help you keep the lockdown blues at bay by giving you some major vacay vibes. That’s why we combed through the depths of Instagram to scout the chicest hairdos that even the supremely lazy can handle.
From space buns and scarf twisted braids to chic up-dos - we've rounded up some of the coolest hairstyles that are genuinely achievable when you’re short on time. Keep swiping for the screenshot-worthy hairstyles that can elevate your WFH style in seconds.
These face-framing strands are flooding our Instagram feed at the moment as it instantly injects a dose of style to almost any hairdo. This ponytail can easily be created with minimal effort and is on-so-stylish. Just part your hair down the middle and tie it up in a ponytail leaving an inch of hair from either side at the front. If you're exacting, like us, use a hair setting spray for a sleek-AF finish, keeping those flyaways at bay.
Looking for an easy-peasy way to style your long-AF hair? This proves that you don't need anything more than a scarf to make even a basic ponytail look like a million bucks. This can be made simply by replacing one of the sections in your braid with a scarf. You’ll enjoy a cool new look—plus, the scarf adds major volume. For scarf hair 2.0, turn that braid into a topknot.
Another throwback trend? Oh yes! Perfect for when you're having a bad hair day. We totally love how fashion girls are embracing their natural texture with this one (yes, it even works on bed-head hair). Spritz a salt spray into dry or damp hair to get those fresh-from-the-beach waves before you tie it up. You may need a lightweight wax or gel to keep your flyaways nice and smooth on the front.
The bubble ponytail has been making waves for the last couple of months and it’s one of the easiest ways to up your hairstyling game. From glamorous iterations to chic everyday versions - There are different variations you can try depending on your hair length, texture, and of course, the time you’ve to create it. You can make fewer bubbles if you are short of time and still nail this look.
Sure, we are all inclined towards a messy bun when in a time crunch, but this easy two-bun hairstyle is so much cooler (and just as easy). All you’ll need is a brush, bobby pins, a hair tie, and a lightweight wax or gel to tame those flyaways. Part in the center, make two braids and tie them up into separate buns on each side. Secure the bun with a few bobby pins. Trust us when we say you’ll only need two to three minutes to perfect this look. Yes, it is that simple!
Scrunchies were such a defining trend of the '90s and are still cute. They are comfortable and perfect for securing any kind of ponytail. This is the easiest, freshest, and the quickest way to spice up your ponytail by just twisting it in a look at the top. You can easily create this hairstyle by sporting your natural hair texture. Using a scarf in place of a scrunchie will also do the trick.
The throwback trend that is making its way back is the fashion-forwards micro-braid hairdo. Thanks to celebs like Haley Beiber and Bella Hadid for bringing this hella cute hairdo back in trend. These loosely tied micro braids make a statement of their own and it still looks so good. The new iteration involves a more polished version of the hairstyle with cute face-framing micro braids falling down their face.
Trust us, if we can do it in no time, you can sure rock all of these.
