5 Lazy Girl Hairstyles to Rock This Weekend

In 2016, I vow not to neglect my hair as much as I did last year.  One thing I'm famous for is putting my hair away in an uncared for bun and forgetting about it until wash day.  Even though I'm still lazy when it comes to my hair, that doesn't mean that I can't put in a little effort to look presentable.

So I'm compiling a short list of cute "lazy girl" hair styles to rock when lounging around.
I stayed away from cornrows for a long time because of a misconception that they weren't feminine enough to flatter my face.  Truth is, I never took the time to do them right.  But then I changed my strategy.  I started paying attention to the details, making sure the braids were hydrated, edges neat, and I accessorized the look with cute earrings & makeup.  Because of my efforts, cornrows became a great go-to summer protective style and I've not looked back.
Goddess braids are a favorite of mine because they can be dressed up or down. I love this variation with a couple of loose, soft ringlets.  Whenever I wear this style (braided or twisted) I enjoy a head full of waves after the take down.  That's two hair styles in one.  It's a lazy girl's dream come true.
And who can forget the ultimate cute look with little effort....the top knot.  Moving the topknot forward makes it a bit more casual and effortless.  The bigger the top knot, the better.  
I'm a huge fan of creating two braids or twists to keep hair away from the face.  It's a small effort but the final look is really stylish and feminine.  
I love this alternate version of creating two twists on each side just to make the look a bit more interesting.  
Today, I think I'll experiment with this half top knot with larger ringlets.  Shouldn't take long to recreate. Just throw on some flexi rods and wear 'em while I clean up around the house.  If I don't have time to wait, I'll mist them lightly to help the curls set.  The sleek top knot creates the perfect balance to the giant waves.   Not only is this look effortless, but it's a great 2nd or 3rd day style post braid out or twist out.

No more excuses....go do something cute with your hair.

  1. Thank You for sharing! I do tend to go into a rut sometimes in the mornings before work where I can't find any inspiration to style my hair. Will try these styles out for everyday and even for my Art shoots for my blog :)


  2. Totally agree with you. Me too, dont pay enough attention while at home or doing house work. Always tight up in a messy bun. Thanks for sharing some of your style. Got to look awesome while at home too. Sharon Elsie
