After a long week of waking up early and getting ready every morning, you’re ready to just chill out. 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. Here are a few weekend hairstyles we love:

Oftentimes the work week calls for carefully constructed and professional styles. When the weekend comes rolling in, it’s time you give your hair a break. Enter: the low pony. Low ponytails are a great hairstyle option for the weekend since they add some depth to your hair without having to do all that much work.


Natural Curls

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? 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.

Editor’s tip: This look is intricate. Keep it in place with VO5 Mega Hold Styling Mousse so you can enjoy your day with one less thing to think about.


Braided Top Knot
