Weekend Hairstyles We Love: 7 Hairstyles We Love for the Weekend

Weekend ready with carefree hair!

After a long week of waking up early and getting ready every morning, no-fuss simple weekend hairstyles are just what we’re in the market for. Whether that means a glammed up pony, choppy bangs or the addition of a scarf, we’re all about effortless beauty for the weekend. Keep reading to find a few hairstyles you’ll want to incorporate into your weekend hair routine.

Here are a few weekend hairstyles we’re trying out:

1. Low Scarf Pony

A scarf jazzes up that regular hot-weather pony and gives it a resort flair.

Oftentimes the work week calls for carefully coiffed and perfectly pulled-back hairstyles. This means it’s time you give your hair a break when the weekend comes rolling in. Enter: the low pony. Low ponytails are a great hairstyle option for the weekend since they keep hair away from your face, but with a more relaxed feel. Looking to jazz your ponytail up a little? Add a scarf and work that Old Hollywood glam vibe!

2. Wash and Go Curls

Keep your hair natural for a perfect laid back weekend look.

If you’re looking for the ultimate time-saving hairstyle, let your curls be free. To make the most of your fuss-free curls, simply add in a little bit of a defining mousse, such as the Dove Style + Care Curls Defining Mousse, to keep them looking naturally on point.

3. Braided Messy Bun

Messy buns are an essential weekend ‘do. What better way to peace out from a long work week than tying up your hair like you just don’t care? Our thoughts exactly. Now, since we’re #adulting and looking presentable is important, embrace your messy hair but take it up a notch with an inverted braid. To go with the flow of the messy look, simply lightly tug your braid for a more undone, but totally intentional look.

4. Braided Top Knot

Think of it as a party in the front and laid-back business in the back. Whether you want one, two, or three braids leading into your half-up bun, this is one of those hairstyles that is sure to turn heads while keeping your hair perfectly in place and out of your face throughout the weekend.

5. Headscarf Updo

6. Straight Hair, Don’t Care

For all the straight-haired ladies who find themselves constantly under the heat of blowdryers and curling wands to create stunning workday hairstyles, let your tresses take a break this weekend by allowing your locks to rock their natural look. Worried natural will automatically mean a little frizz? Simply add a few sprays of the Bed Head by TIGI Headrush Shine Spray from root to tip to seal in a frizz-free, super shiny ‘do.

7. Top Knot
