Want to make a little change without heading into the salon? We’ve compiled a work week’s worth of fun, flirty hair tricks to try to add a little oomph into your coif.
Baby braid it
Make a pretty plait in the front and tuck or pin it behind your ear. You can also braid on the side and pull over your hair to make a “braid headband”.
Rock a Headscarf
Scour vintage shops or show off your favorite designer finds with this look. Pull hair into an updo and wrap a pretty scarf around the base. Tie in a girlish bow or leave the ends loose for a more bohemian look.
Side Swoop Barrette
If you have a special barrette, this is a great way to show it off. Part hair in the side and swoop bangs over the front. Pin the barrette on the side to hold the locks in place.
For a glamorous addition to the messy bun, pull out some face framing pieces. Use a curling iron to add an elegant touch to the stray strands.
Half and Half
This ’60s look still looks fresh. Tease the crown and swoop up the top layer of hair. Fasten with a large bobby pin, barrette, or hair tie and spritz with hairspray to give the coif staying power.
BONUS: Add a gorgeous headband – We love the beautiful designs from Love Berman. From a crystal-laden stretch headpiece to a pearl studded headdress every piece from this collection will add a lot of luster to your locks.
