We are living in a new era, ladies and gentlemen.
While we are all trying our best to stay safe and social distance, some of us are experiencing the laziness or lack of motivation that comes with the monotony of isolating at home.
This doesn’t mean that you can’t feel and look confident, even on those long days filled with Zoom sessions.
Here are four quick and easy hairstyles for you to try before your next Zoom appearance.
It can’t get much easier than this.
Grab your favorite scrunchie or hair tie and gather your lovely locks up to the crown of your head. Not only is this one a timesaver, but it also keeps your hair out of your face. If you want to add in some flavor, try adding a braid, wave or curl to your pony.
There is plenty of room to be creative with this one.
If you really don’t feel like dealing with your hair whatsoever, the bun is for you.
Gather your hair at a comfortable position on your head, higher or lower; it doesn’t matter. Then, wrap your hair around until it is bunched together how you like, tight or loose, it also doesn’t matter. Secure with a scrunchie or other hair tie.
If you are worried about the bun falling out, bobby pins or hair clips are great for pinning any uncooperative hair. The sock bun is also a great accessory if you are going for a cleaner, rounder bun. If you’re not feeling too lazy, add in a braid to spice it up.
Half up, half down
A bit more complicated, but still effortless.
While leaving some hair down, gather the rest of your hair up into a bun or ponytail. This allows you to keep some of your hair down while keeping the rest out of your face.
Don’t forget to customize according to your style. You can wave, curl, scrunch, or straighten your untied hair. Perk up the bun or ponytail with little braids.
There are countless types of braids to try out, depending on the level of effort you feel like putting into your hair.
The classic, three-strand braid is a great start and doesn’t take too long. Gather your hair into a single braid to wear over your shoulder or pin up to create a ‘crown’ look. If you’re working with more time and energy, try out the French braid. This involves starting at the top instead of at the base of the head. Divide your hair into three strands and add in more as you braid down towards the base of your head.
