Just because Fall is soon approaching, doesn’t mean we have to get all buttoned-up with our hairstyles. It is perfectly alright to give our hair a break from too many styling products and come up with a style that doesn’t look sloppy yet has that casual vibe we have been rocking all summer. So if you’re like us, we suggest you get your scrunchies ready as we’re bringing you some fun, casual-chic hairstyles featuring loose waves, casual buns and more.
Casual Low Knot
This is probably one of the easiest hairstyle you can do in under a minute! Simply brush your hair and gather it into a low ponytail. Tip: Make sure you use an elastic band that is firm enough. Using your hands, simply twist your hair from the elastic band to the ends. Then wrap your ponytail in a coil around the elastic band and secure with bobby pins. To avoid the too polished ballerina-look, pull out a few strands of hair from the knot. Do the same with the hair surrounding your face to frame it and give it a romantic charm.
If your hair is long enough, you can literally tie a knot with it. Just divide it into two to three sections, tie them together and wrap them around. Don’t worry if you have a few loose strands. Secure the knot by using a few bobby pins to make sure it doesn’t fall apart. You can also add some vintage hair accessories, such as art deco bobby pins or a wonderfully ornate hairclip (e.g. rose gold, bronze, or silver): they are all the rage this fall!
Lazy-girl Soft Waves
Braiding your hair before going to sleep will give you nice wavy tresses in the morning. However, if you don’t have that much time on your hands or you want your waves during the day, you may want to pick up your flat iron. A curling iron is great, but we just love how versatile a flat iron can be when creating different curls. One of our favorite straighteners to use is our ghd hair straightener as it has amazing performance.
Now one of the ways to achieve those loose curls is to start with a small section of your hair and clamp the flat iron horizontally, making sure it is a couple of inches from your roots. Wrap your hair around the top of the iron and then twist it forward. Hold it for a few seconds, then unclamp it and position it beneath the first bend. Then do the same, but in the opposite direction. Follow the same pattern until you reach the end of your section. After you do your whole hair, flip your hair back for a slightly messier look with more volume. Don’t forget to run your fingers in your hair to gently loosen your waves. You can skip the last step if you want more defined curls. Once satisfied, apply hairspray to lock the curls in place.
Quick Messy Bun
A messy bun is one our favorite hairstyles to do for Fall. As busy gals that we are, we love when are hair doesn’t require hours to do. This hairstyle really only takes a minute of our time and then we are out the door. To recreate the messy bun look, start by tying your hair into a ponytail. Don’t make it too firm. Next, flip your hair forward and use your fingers to divide your hair. Create a small hole right beneath the hair band. Then grab the end of your ponytail from the front and loop your hair through this hole.
Just pull a few loose strands on each side to create a desired voluminous look. Tip: Make sure to tighten the hair band so it stays firmly secured. You can leave a few of the loose strands cradling your face to hang freely or secure them with bobby pins. For a boho-style, you can even braid them or add hair accessories.
