5 Hairstyles to Wear If You Haven't Seen Your Hairdresser in Months

Shout-out to everyone who sees their hairdresser more often than their best mates, as I know that it's been tough going these past few months. While I don't want to downplay how important it has been to stay at home, there's no denying that our grooming options have been a little lacklustre. Home waxes, manis and pedis are actually pretty good with a bit of practice, but the facts are you can't give yourself a proper haircut. And no, watching a YouTube video doesn't count.

But that’s not to say fashion girls aren’t looking as chic as they used to—nothing is cooler than natural, understated hairstyles, and we're even seeing a revival of the ultimate bad-hair-day best friend: the plait. There are definitely some standout fashion-girl hair trends that we first spied during last season's Copenhagen Fashion Week and we're now spotting all over our Instagram feeds. The best thing about them? They’re all super easy to copy and incorporate into your everyday looks and ideal for co-opting for any bad hair days. Keep scrolling to see more.

1. The Low Pony or Bun

The less effort the better when it comes to this style. Simply pull back at the base of your neck in a chic pony or a messy bun and you're off.

2. The Hair Accessory

From scrunchies to scarves, dressing up your low-key style is all the rage. Headbands and hair clips aren't going anywhere, either.

3. The Bob

Okay, so this one is a little harder if you've got a grown-out bob, but think of it as inspiration for your next hairdresser visit. We love au naturel waves with this timeless cut.

4. The Ponytail Plaits

If you're having a bad hair day, this style is the answer, whether sleek in a ponytail or loose and boho.

5. The Collar Tuck

Surely, this is the simplest way to take your hairstyle from everyday to fashion girl–ready. Just tuck in your loose, natural locks into your jacket or jumper for an instant "look."
