5 LAZY DAY HAIRSTYLES
Hi my lovelies! I love experimenting with complicated styles from time to time, but on a day to day basis I’m all for making my hair look cute and stylish in matter of minutes! 😉 Lazy day hairstyles for a lazy girl! 😉 I did a post about it many months ago, but I accidentally deleted it from my blog…. I decided to take this opportunity today and do a completely new version of the post!
5 lazy day hairstyles
I figure I’m not the only one who wants to look good with little to no effort? 😉 If you’re like me, let me introduce you to a few of my favourites!
Dutch braided accent
If you’re not used to braiding yet and you feel that it’s not at all a quick option, I have other choices for you (for now), but if you have done it a couple of times, you know exactly how quick, easy and effective adding a little dutch braid accent is! To recreate my look, part your hair to one side, then on the side with more hair, braid the section from your forehead towards the back into a dutch braid, tie it off with an elastic and either pin the end of the braid with a bobby pin underneath some hair in the back, or take a thin strand from underneath and tie the end of the braid together with that strand. The reason why the dutch braid is my favourite is because you can pull it apart and make it appear a lot thicker than it is, which makes for an eye-catching addition to your hairstyle.
Watch the video on the bottom of this post for in depth instructions!
French braid tie back
This is almost exactly the same as the one above, except you do a french braid instead of a dutch braid (you cross the strands over instead of under) You can do it on only one side, as above, or on both sides of the parting and then tie both braids together in the back.
French braided bun
This is a continuation of the previous hairstyle and a good choice if you want all of the hair out of the way. Braiding only the top hair sections doesn’t require a lot of time and you can tie the rest of your hair right below where the two braids meet in a pony tail, twist it around it’s nape into a bun. You can make it as neat or messy as you like!
The donut bun
These last two hairstyles are the easiest but require some accessories. Here you can use a bun filler otherwise know as the donut 😉 You make a high ponytail, place the donut on top of it and distribute the hair evenly around it and cover it completely. Pin the hair in place with bobby pins. Try to adjust the size of the donut to your hair length and occasion 😉
Chignon really means bun in French but is often used to distinguish this particular type of bun by us non French speaking 😉 As you can see in the video below, I used a different type of bun filler, shaped like a sausage with a headband attached. This allowed my shorter hair to appear a lot fuller. I placed the headband on top of my head with the sausage placed in the back (you can pin it to your head with bobby pins so it doesn’t slip off before you finish the hairstyle). Use a comb to pull out some hair in the front that you’ll use to cover the band. Then just twist the hair in the direction away from your face and place it around the headband and over the sausage in the back. Distribute the hair evenly over the filler to cover it and pin everything in place with bobby pins.
