Best low maintenance hairstyles

Always look your best with these simple coifs

From SheKnows Canada
It isn't always about creating the perfect stylish up-do — sometimes we just want our hair to look great without having to do anything to it. No matter what type of hair you're working with, one of these simple hairstyles will give you a hassle-free look.

Short flirty bob hairstyleFor straight hair

According to Good Home Sense, if you have straight hair, an even cut all the way around with a few pieces to frame your face is often best. While layering can cause hair to look choppy when it air-dries, a blunt cut allows hair to fall into place naturally. If you prefer a shorter do, you can opt for a chin-length bob that is stacked at the nape of the neck. Expert Jet Rhys, the owner of the Jet Rhys salon in San Diego, asserts that such a cut essentially styles itself.

For wavy hair

If you are one of the select few that have been blessed with Evangeline Lilly-looking waves, count yourself lucky and show them off. Go for a cut that falls around armpit level, which will let your gorgeous locks shine without the weight that will cause the top to flatten. Also, make sure to get your hair trimmed every two to three months to keep it from looking lacklustre or scraggly. And for some added wave in the morning follow these simple steps:

  1. Wet hair in the shower.
  2. Beginning near your forehead, twist the hairs on the right side of your head into each other, working your way down towards your neck. Secure with a clip. Repeat on the left side.
  3. Grab the hair from both sides that has not yet been twisted in and twist into a bun at the base of your head. Secure with pins or an elastic.
  4. Sleep with your hair in this twisted bun overnight. Remove pins in the morning. You can curl any imperfect pieces if necessary, but for the most part you should have perfectly curled locks to get you ready for the day ahead.

For curly hair

The important thing to remember when it comes to curly hair is that not all hair stylists have the knowledge and skill-set to cut your hair correctly. Make sure you select a stylist you feel comfortable with and who has experience with cutting curly hair. For a hassle-free cut you will likely want something in the middle range, length-wise, that doesn't have too many layers. Make sure you use a strong conditioner. In the mornings, simply run a product such as Dippity-do's styling gel through your curly locks, tame flyaways with a spritz of hairspray and you'll be on your way!

Don't forget, these are just starting suggestions. Don't be afraid to try something new. Worst-case scenario? You spend a few months with less than stellar hair. But you can always return to one of these for a safe, hassle-free hairstyle.
