3 Fun Weekend Hairstyles That Aren't a Ponytail
Whether your hair is short, medium, or long, Bella Hadid is proving there's a lot you can do with your style.
Unlike your workout, your hair should be imprecise on weekends. With a face-framing piece here and a loose end there, Bella Hadid has mastered the art of casual hair. (She also continues to nail the crop top look.) Some of the tricks to appearing stylishly disheveled include using your fingers, rather than a brush or a comb, to gather hair into an elastic or scrunchie, air-drying before styling for a naturally roughed-up texture, and loosely sliding in accessories for a soft effect.
Apart from her off-duty looks, she's sported plenty of weekend-worthy styles on the runway over the years. Here are three you can easily recreate, no matter your hair length.
1. Sleek and Chic
The key to this style is to go heavy on hair products. To avoid a crunchy texture, skip gel and opt for pomade or wax, says Tyson Kennedy, a co-owner of Cutler Brooklyn. Apply from roots to mid-shafts, then distribute product with a wide-toothed comb.
Divide hair down the middle, then gather the upper portion of each half into a ponytail. Secure with elastics by your crown. Next, twist the ends of each tail until they wind around the elastic, and anchor each bun a bit shy of ends with bobby pins. (Related: How to Do a Messy Bun In 3 Simple Steps.)
3. Low Clips
Air-dry hair for texture. (Pst, here's the best way to air dry your hair.) Next, brush a section of hair from each side of the part down just behind the ear, and secure with a barrette angled upward. Finish with a light mist, like Seven Haircare Cubica Working Spray ($27; 7haircare.com)
