Have you ever gotten up in the morning and thought it was going to be a good day… until you looked in the mirror, and saw that your hair was a mess? Or do you wear the same hairstyle over and over again and have finally had enough of your played out favorite ‘do? Or are you just plain ol’ lazy when it comes to styling your hair? Well, if you said yes to any of the above, we’re here to help you, PrettyGirl! Just because you don’t put as much thought into planning your hairstyles as you would your makeup or outfits doesn’t mean your hair has to look boring, messy, or just plain ashy.
We have three easy hairstyles that will make any (lazy) PrettyGirl look chic will spending next to no time creating them. Enjoy!
The Flat Twist Crown
Halo crown. Halo braid. Flat twist crown. Whatever you want to call it, it pretty much does all the same thing – an effortless chic hairstyle. This style will literally take you five minutes to complete. YouTube vloggers like HeyCurlie have endless step-by-step tutorials on how to achieve this look.
What’s great about this style? Versatility. It’s the perfect look for class, work, a date, or even a girls’ night out. Below HeyCurlie shows us how to achieve this chic, lazy girl look:
Start out on blown out, stretched hair. Old twist outs work perfectly!
Decide on how you want to part your hair. Left, right, middle? The choice is yours.
Flat twist or braid each side and secure each side with a body pin.
Finish by laying your edges down with your favorite edge control
Ever forget to wrap your hair at night and it looks like a mess in the morning? Or forget to re-twist your hair at night and suddenly your day 2 hair looks like day 15 hair? Well, we have a simply solution for you – a headband. The headband does just about any style justice and in some cases adds a little something to an already very simple hairstyle. Watch how Janae Mason of Nae2Curly completes this effortlessly, chic style HERE:
At night, twist your hair into about 10-15 chunky twist
Use water and some moisturizer, to lock in the moisture over night
In the morning, take down twist and fluff!
Add a headband of choice. We like this kitten ear headband that Nae2Curly is rockin!
The Top Knot
Buns are basic. Yes, we said it! Buns are every lazy girl’s go-to hair style and we’re over them! The top knot though – it’s the highbred version of a bun. A top knot can be chic and well put together, or it can be messy and effortless. Orrrrrrrr, you could have a top knot WITH bangs! Below, you can check out how Youtube’s Alyssa Forever puts a twist to a classic look:
