Ladies, the good news this fall is that you don’t need to get sore anymore from holding that blowdryer and brush forever in the air, trying to fix up your hair frizz. Hell, you can even throw your comb away and stop brushing your hair altogether. Well, maybe a few products here and there just for the sake of keeping your hair in health & shape, but who doesn’t like 5 min hairstyles? Undone, loose locks and non-sleek buns are all the rage this season and we’re loving it!
These are the winners for this fall and you can wear every one of them.
It’s not the traditional bridal, ballet bun, with this one you can have a little more fun with. It’s basically a lower positioned messy bun. Tie all your hair at the back and secure it with a band. The rest of it you can just loosely secure with bobby pins, or tie another band around it to make a bun and then pull out a few loose strands for a messier look. If your hair is very long, you can play with it and tie the knots with your hair, as many as you can and then secure them with bobby pins. Ultra cute and modern are two swirl buns instead of one.
Finally a braid that doesn’t require the skills of a braiding ninja. Did you master the art of a finnish plait braid? Well you can save it for later because twisted, messy low ponytail is the new braided ponytail. Works the best if you have long hair, but again - hair extensions will do the trick. Now you can either messy braid them or you can section them with few elastics to achieve that ropey look. Either way if your hair is layered and it starts to crawl out of the braid or hair elastic, then even better. Remember with this look, the fuzzier, the better.
Since loose beachy waves had been around for some time now, let’s go with that first. If you have straight hair, you can add up a little volume by curling it, and if you are already blessed with curls, then all you need to do is to define and enhance them with serum drops or mousse. Definitely, if you’re using a flat iron to curl your hair (which is the best way to do it to get soft, wavy curl) make sure you’re using protective hairstyle products and deep conditioning your hair, especially if you have thin hair. Look for hair boosters that can help with thinning hair, good pick are Nioxin hair products and hair boosters. And remember, do not use coconut oil, it makes your hair look only thinner, and we don’t want that.
But not just your regular side part, but rather a few inches more on the side then usually. This works with loose hair or with tied hair, but make sure it’s not too sleek if you choose the second option, and let’s face it, there are days when only a bun will work. And a lot of dry shampoo. Also if you have really thick hair and your hair on the side gets bumpy make sure to balance it out by compressing the hair on one side (use hair gel or hair mousse) and tease it on the other to create fullness. And you can combine the side part with low bun, or ponytail, but remember not to spend more than 5 minutes on your hair, otherwise it looks too perfect and polished.
Hair ties are making their comeback in a bigway. You can tie them around your head and wear them like a headband or, and this is the perfect way to incorporate a hair tie to your hair, tie it around your ponytail. Again, go with low ponytail and you can either braid hair tie into your hair or you can just wrap it around your ponytail. You can also attach a hair extensions onto your hair to get the fuller braid, and to really get the most out of this look. You can also experiment with tie colours, depending on your hair color, you can match them or you can go for a full black and white contrast.
