A bank holiday weekend is the perfect excuse to explore another city or be a tourist in your own area.

In our social media age, every landmark, coffee shop or famous street needs to be captured for the gram so it’s important you have a hairstyle that’ll help to rack up the likes.

Tap into the latest hair accessory trend with a headband. Headbands have been given a modern cool-girl twist that is more Serena than Blair. So wear yours with a messy low bun or ponytail for the perfect street style snap. Credit: @thestylestalkercom

VO5 Dry Texturising Spray

Editor’s tip: Create effortless, undone styles that are full of texture with the VO5 Dry Texturising Spray.

For instant texture, spray evenly onto the lengths of dry hair, holding the can approximately 30cm away from your hair and use your fingers to scrunch and tousle your strands.

2. Milkmaid braid for warm getaways

If lounging on a deck chair is your idea of a perfect bank holiday weekend (whose isn’t), then a fuss-free braided hairstyle is the perfect look for you.

Milkmaid braids like above will have everyone thinking you’ve put in a huge effort when in fact, it’s one of the simplest braided styles out there – but we won’t tell if you don’t.

But why a braided hairstyle? Braids are ideal for keeping your hair in check throughout the day and then for an evening look, you can unwrap your braids to reveal stunning heat free waves. Credit: @jodycallanhair

Style tip: You can even reverse this by braiding your hair at night and rocking beach waves for the day.

3. Half-up bun perfect for staying in

With a busy work/life balance, we often put off the important plans in our life. So, this bank holiday we suggest tackling all those jobs you’ve been meaning to attend to.

Thinking of starting a new passion project? Decorating the living room? Or having the girls over for a movie marathon? Whatever it is, we suggest trying out a simple half-up, half-down bun (AKA hun). It’s the perfect in-between style as you get to show off the length of your hair while reaping the benefits of an updo and best of all, it takes no time at all. Credit: @bartabacmode

Style tip: Dress up your hairstyles by wrapping a silk scarf around your bun.

4. Cute hat for discovering The Great Outdoors

Who said you need your passport to enjoy your bank holiday weekend?

Cotswold, Somerset or Oxfordshire, discover the unique charm of the countryside this bank holiday. Enjoy the slow pace and local shops while meeting the locals, The Holiday style. And just like Cameron Diaz, you need a beautiful hairstyle to match your surroundings.

Let’s face it, as much we might wish for a gloriously sunny bank holiday weekend, the truth is, it’s most likely to be a washout, especially in the countryside – oh, the joys of British weather.

But fear not, as there is one way to make sure your style is on point and that’s with a stylish hat. From beret to baker boy, adding a hat to straight, wavy or curly hair means you’ll look chic come rain or shine! Credit: @sombrerosmaiegutierrez
