3 Laborless Hairstyles For Labor Day
Aside from the literal meaning of Labor Day, the celebration of the labor movement in the United States and laborers’ contributions to our modern society, it also means that Summer is finally coming to a close (in theory, anyway). Whether you’re planning to host or attend a barbecue, or to simply spend the day on a beach somewhere, we have some tips to keep your hair looking fabulous without having to spend your day off laboring over it.
Simple Hairstyles For Your Labor Day
1. Messy Top Knot
If you just don’t feel like fussing with your hair on this designated day of rest, the Messy Bun is a classic choice. Simply brush all of your hair to the top of your head (tipping upside down is a big help), and secure a high ponytail with an elastic. Next, hold the ponytail straight up and back brush a bit to give some body to your bun. Wrap, pin, and spray with a light hairspray like Bumble and Bumble’s Does It All. Feel free to pull pieces out in the front, it gives a softer look.
2. Fishtail Braid
Perfect for a beach day, this nautical style is unbelievably easy. Pull all of your hair to one side and split it into two sections, gripping one in each hand. Next, take a small piece from one section and cross it over to the other, and do the same from the other side. Continue this motion all the way to the ends of your hair, secure, and then at pieces of the braid to loosen it.
3. Half Twist
This is great if you want to look elegant with minimal effort. Take a small section from the front of your hair, twist it, and then wrap it around the back of your head and pin it in the middle. Repeat with the other side, and loosen twists to cover the bobby pins.
Relax, have a burger, maybe a beer, and remember that you don’t have to work hard to look flawless!
