3 Hairstyles to Take You from Work to Happy Hour
1. Half-Up Top Knot
One of this biggest hair trends right now? Face framing pieces of hair. Whether you’re sporting a ponytail or a half-up style, leaving two pieces out of the style to frame your face is definitely the way to go. This extra detail is a refreshing contrast compared to the super slicked back ponytails we’ve seen lately. Plus, it gives us all the ’90s vibes.
To start the half-up top knot, secure the section of hair at the crown of your head with a clear elastic. Make sure to leave out two pieces of hair to frame your face for an on-trend look. Next, twist your half ponytail around itself to create a mini top knot then secure this in place with another clear elastic.
For a little extra dimension, curl the front two pieces of hair that are out of the top knot with a 1-inch curling iron. Before the curls cool, brush it out to create loose curls. After you’ve completed the curls, finish off your National Happy Hour Day hairstyle with a few spritzes of hair spray. Love Beauty and Planet Light Hold and Frizz Control Coconut Milk and White Jasmine Hair Spray is one of our favorites because it gives our hair a flexible and sleek finish while helping it stay frizz-free.
2. Stacked Hair Clips for National Happy Hour Day
If you couldn’t already tell, we’re a huge fan of hair clips. From oversized pearl varieties to thin bedazzled options, this accessory is a great way to make your hair feel fancier while keeping it out of your face all day. These two reasons alone make this the perfect work-to-happy hour style.
To start off this look, create either a left or right side part in your hair. On the smaller side of your part, smooth down any flyaways with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Smooth Hold Level 2. Spray one to two spritzes of the hair spray on the smaller side of your part, then brush through this side. This trick will help distribute the spray and smooth down any flyaways while keeping your hair flexible. Next, it’s time for the best part, the hair clips! Secure three or four hair clips on the small side of your part that you sprayed with hair spray. After arranging your clips go back in with another spritz of the same hair spray to lock everything in place.
3. Voluminous Curls
You know the best part about voluminous curls? The style lasts more than one day in most hair types, so you won’t have to worry about styling for a couple of days when you do this hairstyle. Hello, sleeping in after National Happy Hour Day!
To start off this look, create a deep side part on the left or right side of your head. Next, prep your hair by adding more volume with Dove Refresh+Care Coconut Dry Shampoo. We love this product because it has a light scent and absorbs any excess oil extremely well.
Now that you have extra volume, begin curling your hair with a 1-inch curling iron. Once your hair is all curled, lock the style in place with TRESemmé TRES Compressed Micro Mist Level 2 Hold Curl Hair Spray. We love using this spray because it will help reduce frizz, give you a non-crunchy hold, and helps maintain your hair’s bounciness. After the hair spray has dried, brush out your curls to create even more volume and bounce in your hair!
