We love experimenting with hair, beauty, and style, and when is a better time to learn something new than in quarantine? From French braids to a super sleek bun – here are some super cute hairstyles to teach yourself (or do more of)!
- French Braid
French braids are a beautiful way to keep your hair out of your face, and they’re also really versatile. You can have one, two, or just french braid your bangs back and leave the rest of your hair loose (#3 below).
To do a french braid, the first step is to plait like a regular braid, and each time you fold hair over into the braid, include an extra strand of hair each time you go to loop the plait section. It may seem difficult at first, but you will soon pick it up, and your french braids should get better each time!
- Half Up Half Down
This style is a brilliant way to switch things up without too much effort. This also looks just as good when done messy and when done sleek. When choosing the sleek option, straighten your hair, then section the top of your hair and tie into a topknot. For wavy hair, use a texture or sea salt spray and apply it to the bottom section of your hair. Scrunch to create waves, and you’re good to go!
- Half Up Half Down With Braids
Combine the two techniques together! This is an easy hair style to look like a goddess without the extra work. Part your hair down the middle or comb it back. Make two braids (either regular or French), around your hairline, starting at the front and ending at the back. Tie together. Voila!
- Sleek Bun
This hairstyle may look high end, but it is seriously low key. It’s perfect for when your hair needs washing and is a little greasy, but you’re unsure of what to do with it. All you need is a comb, a hair tie, and some gel or hairspray. Separate your hair into a middle part using the comb and brush through to detangle. Smooth all of your hair back into a low bun. Twist the surrounding hair to form a bun and secure with a hair tie. Use the comb and a little bit of hair gel to slick it back. If you want to get the whole look even more sleek, use an old toothbrush to brush and tame the baby hairs.
