5 Easy Everyday Hairstyles

One thing I’m thankful for this year, is wearing my loungewear throughout lockdown. However spending so much time seeing myself on video calls throughout the week, I have become a bit bored of my go-to natural-air-dried-hair. So I thought I’d share with you 5 easy ways I am styling my hair, with each look only taking up 5 minutes of my day! All you need is a hairbrush, some hair ties, a hair straightener/curler, hairspray and texture spray (I’d recommend Andrew Fitzsimon’s which is available from Primark).

  • Style 1: Loose plaits
    • Starting at the nape of your neck, plait your hair in two.
    • Leave a few strands of hair around your face for a more casual look.
    • Loosely pull the plait for a more undone style.

  • Style 2: Loose curls
    • The beauty of curling hair just to stay at home, is that you don’t need to worry about spending time styling the back of your head!
    • Using your styling tool of choice, take 2 inch thick strands of hair and curl from the middle of the hair down.
    • For a beachy wave, curl in alternative directions.
    • I’d always recommend to curl the pieces of hair which frame your face outwards, rather than towards the face.
    • Brush out or use your fingers to loosen the curl.
    • Use texture spray and hairspray for some volume and extra hold.
    • N.B. Curling works best on hair that isn’t freshly washed.

  • Style 3: Half-up & half-down
    • Simply part the top third of your hair and tie with an elastic.
    • For this look, tie it up higher than you usually would so you can show off your locks on your video call!

  • Style 4: Accessorize
    • The simplest of them all – grab your headbands, hair clips, scrunchies and accessorize your hair! You’ll be surprised how put together this will make you feel.
  • Style 5: Top knot
    • This has been my no.1 lockdown look! Roughly pull the hair back into a ponytail and wrap it loosely round into a bun, focusing on positioning it close to the crown of your head.
    • If working on hair which is a day or two old, you can tie the bun more loosely with an elastic.
    • If freshly washed, your hair will be smoother so tie the hair up tighter, to hold for longer.
    • I like to add texture spray for added lift!
    • If you’re feeling super fancy, you can also accessorize the bun with a scrunchie!
