4 Easy-Chic (Not to Mention, All-Occasion!) Hairstyles We’re Loving Right Now
Tomorrow is the first day of April and all we can think about are the upcoming occasions cluttering our calendars, from music festivals to the best friend’s wedding to Easter brunch with the fam. Nothing but fun, sure, but worrying about what to wear is enough—the last thing you need is added stress over how to do your hair. Good news! The best thing about spring’s top hairstyles is that while most look ultra-chic and done-up, they’re in fact as low maintenance as a super strong gel, a little elbow grease and just-a-few-more-than-usual handful of pins… Behold: 4 of our favorite hassle-free ways to doll-up your locks for any springtime occasion!
(1) TORY’S NATURAL WAVES>> Why we love it? It’s as easy as a spritz of wave-spray (if you’ve got a natural wave or kink to your locks when they dry on their own) or a combed-out loose curl (if you’re natural is more of a stick-straight). Goes great with: A pretty print dress and flats for a casual day, but dresses up just as easy with a chic, tailored look for a wedding or a brunch.
(2) DOLCE & GABBANA’S TEASED-ON-TOP>> Why we love it? Soft and tousled on top says style comes effortlessly to you. This look is also endlessly versatile and perfect for the girl-on-the-go who’s always thinking day-to-night. Goes great with: A long and flowy floral dress, or a LBD event with a cascading earring for dramatic, dolled-up effect.
(3) OSCAR’S CENTER-PARTED HIGH BUN>> Why we love it? The absolute epitome of chic! Goes great with: The beauty of this look is that while it’s sleek, elegant and decidedly feminine, you can still wear it with anything. The obvious match: a ball gown or evening attire. The not-so-obvious match: jeans and crisp collared shirt—instantly city-chic.
(4) YSL’S TWISTED TRESSES>> Why we love it? A unique take on a classic. Bonus: It’s not as complicated as it looks, and it’s easy to tweak to your liking. Invest in a super strong gel, twist inward on each side (yes, you’ll have to pull pretty hard or enlist a friend to help), roll the back up into a u-shape and secure with as many pins as needed. Goes great with: Just like the high sleek bun, this look is slick and dressy by nature. Great for any event, but just as great for the office.
