As we get closer to fall and winter, all we really want to do is cozy up on a lazy day and not really worry about our hair. That being said, with school getting busier and busier, it might be nice to have a few lazy day/low-maintenance hairstyles in your beauty arsenal. 

With these four lazy day hairstyles, you’ll be looking fresh and cute, no matter the time crunch or lack of wanting to put in more than minimal effort into your daily hair look.

Headbands

One of the simplest things you can do for a lazy day hairstyle is gear towards a cute headband. Headbands are trendy, fun, and come in tons of different styles and designs to match your outfits and personality. 

I personally love headbands. They add a fun and unexpected pop to any outfit and can be worn with hair up or down, depending on your mood.

Messy Bun

This is a classic lazy day hairstyle. Would it even be a lazy hairstyle post if I didn’t include the messy bun? Messy buns are a timeless lazy day look. They’re cute and stylish and can be worn on top of your head as a topknot or as a loosely formed low bun. 

For a more modern look, try using a scrunchie if you’re opting for a casual low bun look. Simply twist your hair back and use the scrunchie to secure it. If you only use the scrunchie as a placeholder rather than tying it into loops, it will give the ultimate messy look.

High Ponytail

Nothing can be more simple than a high pony. The best part about high ponytails is that they keep your hair out of your face all day, so you don’t even have to think twice about what to do with your hair. 

If you want to make this lazy hairstyle one step less lazy, try leaving out a strand of hair to twist around the base of the ponytail and hide the hair tie. If the rest of your outfit is not so lazy, this might be a nice way to make the look a little chicer.

Side Braid

Side braids are always a fun lazy day hairstyle. While they may look intricate, standard side braids are as easy as 1, 2, 3. Literally! 

Simply part your hair slightly to the side, then divide your hair into three sections, all pulled to one side. Take hair from either outer section (I usually start with the left) and pull it over the middle section so that it is now in the middle. Then, take the final section and do the same. Repeat until a lovely side braid forms. 

For a “lazy look”, make your side braid a little messy by tugging at the sides of the braids and letting a few pieces of hair loose to frame your face.

Which of these hairstyles is your favorite?

With these lazy hairstyles, you can free up more time to watch Netflix in bed or eat ramen with the roommates. The best lazy day look is one you feel great in that you can call your go-to.
