As women, our hair is one of the most important things for us. We want to make sure we look good but the effort of elaborate hairstyles can be a pain. I know that extensions and braids are very popular, but I honestly don't have the time or patience for either. I have to have low maintenance styles. I'm content with my own natural hair and I have 3 solid go to hairstyles to share with you!
This is my number one go to. When I get up in the morning, if I don't want to worry about my hair for that day I just part my hair down the middle, and braid it back. Normally I twist, but sometimes I do braids. Not only does this keep the hair stable and in one place all day, Its extremely quick to do in the morning. I know we can all appreciate some extra time in the mornings.
TWIST OUT/ BRAID OUT
My second favorite has two sub categories. Twist outs and braid outs are a lot of fun because how how different they make your hair look. Having thick, course, tightly wound curls I'm able to braid or twist my hair overnight have a different curl pattern for the day. This requires no heat so there's no damage, but it does take some time depending on how small you make your braids or twists. But it is another easy style for your mornings, as all you have to do is undo your braids or twists.
This method may or may not require heat, it just depends on the look you are going for. some days all I do is pick my hair until it gets really fluffy and call it a day. But my hair ends up like a bit of a halo surrounding my head. If I choose to use heat, I will go through my hair with a paddle brush and my blow dryer, with a low setting and blow out my hair. Depending on the length of your hair (sometimes you don't even know how long your hair is. Hello shrinkage) your hair will appear dramatically different! I'll throw on a headband a lot of the time, but I also let my blowout fly free. Occasionally I've worn two Afro puffs, but that wasn't out in public. I can appreciate all forms of the puff.
These are my solid hairstyles I wear through out the week. I want to hear from you guys! What is your go to hairstyle for the work week?
lotsa love to ya!
