Fall can be a crazy time of year—getting back into the swing of school or work and no longer running off to the nearest beach or lake for the weekend—it might feel like you’re being pulled in a million directions. With hectic schedules for you, your family or your friends, the last thing you want to think about is your hair. Fear not, here are our recommendations for easy hairstyles that will still have a touch of sophistication and flare:
Buns & Braids: Often times, braids and buns look a lot harder to accomplish then they really are. A top knot is a simple, quick style that gives you a classic, put together look. If a tight bun or braid looks too severe on you, a looser bun is still a chic, fun look.
Low ponies: Add a level of sophistication to the classic ponytail. Low, sleek ponies have been a major trend we’re seeing this fall. If your hair has a bit of wave to it, run a flat iron through your hair to eliminate any kinks or curls. Using mousse or hairspray, create a distinct, hard part and pull your hair into a low pony at the nape of your neck.
Low twists and knots: Keeping in trend with the sleek, low hairstyles we’ve been seeing this season, try a low, slick twist or knot. Like the low pony, this look starts out sitting low on your neck. You can then create a double knot and simply tuck in the ends and secure with hairspray and bobby pins. If you need help mastering this look, swing by Ivy Salon for a styling lesson!
Done, Undone Look: Lazy girls, unite! The messy, effortless hairstyle is in style (praise!). This look is great for days you might be running behind schedule. There’s an ease factor to it because it takes up less of your time in the morning and you can touch it up over the next few days. There’s no need to wash your hair everyday (actually, it’s better for your hair and scalp if you don’t), just remember to use dry shampoo and heat protectant if you’re touching up any spots with a curling iron.
Sectioned Ponytail: 90’s children, you know how to do this style! Make a low pony and then a second pony with a twist. This is a funkier style that still gives you a pulled together appearance, with a stylish edge. Throw on a denim jacket and some dark lipstick and embrace a full 90’s comeback look!
