When the weekend finally rolls around, we all just want to get out there and make the most of it, right? With brunch and happy hour calling our names, we need casual hairstyles that don’t require hours spent in front of the mirror.
If you’re looking for some super easy ‘dos to rock this weekend, take a look at the incredible styles we’re currently crushing on, here.
9 casual hairstyles perfect for weekend wear
1. Twist braid
You’d never guess it but this twisted braid will literally take you less than 5 minutes to do. Although it looks like a French braid, the hair is actually just twisted, so it’s way quicker than a normal braid and looks like you’ve put major effort in.
2. Wrapped ponytail
The most low-maintenance of all casual hairstyles, the ponytail will forever be a favourite of ours.
All you need to do to make it look a little more polished is to take a small section of hair from underneath your ponytail and wrap it around the base to cover up your hairband. Go forth and swish that sassy pony!
3. Messy bun
Editor’s tip: Messy buns are the perfect second day hairstyle. Just refresh your roots with a spritz of VO5 Refresh Dry Shampoo to soak up any grease and freshen up your roots and you’ll be good to go!
4. Space buns
5. High bun
Casual hairstyles needn’t be scruffy. The truth is, there are loads of classy looking styles you can go for that won’t cut into your precious getting ready time — this high bun being one of them.
6. Side braid
Got a jam-packed schedule this weekend? Then you need a hairstyle that can be done in minutes and will last all day long! And this laid-back, effortless braid is just the ticket.
Editor’s tip: Prep your strands with the TONI&GUY Flexible Hold Braid Balm and it’ll give your braid even more hold and structure. And you know what that means: braids that last all weekend!
7. The hun
But that’s not even the best part, because this style is so incredibly versatile, it’ll literally work for anyone, no matter if your hair is short, long, straight or curly! Your natural texture will just add your own unique spin to your half-updo.
8. Fishtail braided bun
Looking out for casual hairstyles that let you show off your braiding prowess? Braided buns are a classic but trying out the look with a different braiding style — this fishtail, for example — makes it a that bit more exciting.
Pair with a Breton top and you’ll have that French girl look down.
Psst! If you need a helping hand with your fishtail braiding, we’ve got a tutorial on it here – you’re welcome!
9. Braided headband
There’s a reason braided bangs are such well-loved casual hairstyles: the main one being that you can leave the rest of your hair out as it is.
Just adding a braid at the front of your hair totally passes as a look in itself, so you don’t need to stress about straightening your strands beforehand.
