There are days when we just can’t even. It’s a feeling that’s extremely common on Mondays or after a late night out. And it’s a mood some experience on a regular basis (no judgment). Feeling like a sloth isn’t troublesome when it’s the weekend and we can spend the day in our PJs binge-watching box sets. But it’s a problem when we have work, class or a formal function where we need to look presentable. When just getting out of bed feels like a monumental effort, we aren’t going to bother with hair tools and 15-step hairstyles. We want quick and easy looks and if they can disguise unwashed hair, even better.
Most of us have a default hairstyle for lazy days, but it’s good to have more than one in your repertoire. The beauty of these easy hairstyles is that there’s no need to consult YouTube tutorials to create them. Just brush, twist and fasten accordingly, then get out the door. In addition to requiring next-to-no effort or time, they’re polished enough for a variety of occasions. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself working them into your routine even when you’re in a more ambitious mood.
