After a long week of work, it’s finally time to relax and unwind! If you’re looking for something fun to do with your gal pals, then happy hour on a Friday or Saturday (or any day, actually) is a great activity. Whether it’s at your favorite local bar or a cute rooftop spot, happy hour is a great way to celebrate the start of the weekend. What’s great about this activity (besides reduced drink prices!) is that it’s casual and low pressure when it comes to getting ready.
You may still want to get a little dressier than work, but for the most part, it’s all about being comfortable. Here are some fun and low maintenance hairstyles you can quickly create before meeting up with friends for a glass or two!
Fun and Flirty Hairstyles for Happy Hour
1. Quick Braid
If it’s a particularly hot day, then you might be wanting a style that’s cute and practical. A quick braid will get your hair off your neck and offer a fun style that’s perfect for the occasion. You can create this look prior to arriving or even mid-event!
2. Retro Inspired
Go for a unique style like a retro-inspired half updo. This look is sleek and adds a fun element to your hairstyle. It’s important to make sure your hair is smooth and easy to work with as you use bobby pins to secure your “curled” pieces on top. Use Bed Head by TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream to make sure your hair is bump and knot-free as you create this fun style for happy hour.
3. Smooth Ponytail
When it comes to keeping it classy over drinks with friends, we think a ponytail is the perfect combination of cute, sophisticated, and casual-chic. Make your ponytail as smooth as your glass of wine with a hydrating hair oil. Apply a small amount of ApotheCARE Essentials The Mender Hair Oil to nourish your strands while giving them a silky smooth finish. Brush your hair back into a ponytail and you’re ready to go!
4. Curled Bob
If you rock a bob or a lob then consider giving your style some defined curls. Adding curls will accentuate the blunt cut of your bob and add some fun texture, too!
5. Twisted Half Updo
Take the standard half updo look to the next level by twisting strands of your hair to create volume and height. This isn’t a full-blown “pouf” look, but the twists will definitely make the look more interesting. Once your hair is secured, gently use your fingers to pull and your strands and loosen them to add more body to the style.
6. Voluminous Natural Curls
Take your natural curly hair to the next level by adding as much volume as possible! This look is perfect to achieve if you’re going straight from work to your happy hour plan. Create volume and lock in your curls with TRESemmé Curl Locking Styling Spray.
7. Fun Hat
There’s not much explanation needed for this look! Go for a hat that fits your outfit and personality. It takes no styling time at all and will add a fun accessory to your overall look.
