What better look to start our list of holiday-worthy looks than the flirty ponytail? Tousled and voluminous, with face-framing tendrils of hair, this look is super flattering on everybody. And because it’s a ponytail, it’s also super quick and easy to achieve as a staycation hairstyle.

Speaking of easy to achieve, these side swept braids are the ultimate of staycation hairstyles for just that reason. Simply braid your hair as desired and toss your hair over to one side. If you want to add some spice to your look, you can tie it with a ribbon, or create an up-do with your braids instead.


Dramatic curls

Until now, we’ve been keeping it simple. But honestly, this is a great time to experiment with your look. If you’ve been thinking of cutting your hair, but worried you might not like it, you need to add this to your list of staycation hairstyles. The faux bob is a great way to get a sense of what you would look like with shorter locks, without the commitment! And of course, it looks great.

Now, whether pineapple belongs on pizza is debatable, but we can all agree that it looks great on curly hair! (See what we did there?) This is one of our most-loved staycation hairstyles because its perfect to take a nap in, but looks high fashion enough to strut around in. It’s the perfect 2-in-1.

If you’re enjoying a super chilled staycation and not feeling like putting too much effort into your hairdo, we got you. A headwrap is a really easy style that you can have fun with. Make it simple, or complex — it’s up to you.

Editor’s tip: Take advantage of your hair being tucked away with this staycation hairstyle. Before wrapping your hair, apply a hair mask for some extra TLC. Give your hair a quick moisture-boost with the Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Treatment Mask. Free of sulphates, phthalates (and cruelty-free), this mask will deeply condition, fortify and smooth your hair.
