Hairstyles I Did During the Week

Hey guys!!!

You know those weeks where you can’t decide what do with your hair? Maybe you’ve got exams or work is kicking your butt, but you just don’t have the energy to even think about your hair. If you want a little inspiration on what to do, here’s what hairstyles I did to my hair for a whole week.

Ok, let’s backtrack a bit, the day before my “hair inspiration week” began, was Sunday and guess what? Wash day! I don’t know about you but Mondays are my busiest days and I have classes super early so I always prepare my hair on Sunday night for Monday. After I did my whole wash day routine (which you can check out here in case you missed it), I let my hair air dry for a little bit and when it was time for bed (my hair wasn’t completely dry yet, but it’s ok) I parted my hair in the middle and did two big French braids, going straight back, wrapped my hair and called it a night.

The next day, I was so glad that I did because I got about 10 extra minutes of sleep since my hair was already taken care of:

I love the new trend of wearing two French braids as a hairstyle (although it has been here for quite a looong time *cough*). I also love doing braids or twists in the beginning of the week because that means that I, not only saved time on Monday by preparing my hair on Sunday, but I already have Tuesday’s hairstyle figured out as well: a super easy and quick braidout. All you need to do is take down the braids, fluff your hair a little for more defined curls or a lot for more volume (a lot in my case: I LOOOOVE big hair) and you’re ready to go.

On Tuesday night, if you sleep with your hair in a pineapple (gather all your hair into a veeeeeeery high and very loose ponytail, almost touching your forehead to resemble a pineapple and protect your curls while you sleep) you’ll be able to maintain your braidout for Wednesday, so you can either do the same as yesterday and wear it as is, or section the front of your hair, from ear to ear, and do a cute little half-up, half-down look. You can put the front section into a ponytail, a mini bun or just clip it all back with some bobby pins, whatever you prefer (I chose mini bun).

Wednesday evenings are reserved for co-washing, so you won’t be able to repeat the same steps as yesterday (unless you skip it, I won’t tell anyone if you don’t) so after co-washing, air dry your hair for as long as possible and because my hair was still damp, I preferred to put it in braids and go to sleep. On Thursday morning just take down the braids and if your curls looked as horrible as mine did, do a quick messy bun. I feel like for messy buns like this, braidouts gone wrong give it a little bit more texture and make it look as if you actually made an effort instead of looking like you took your braids down before your hair had time to set lol.

Ok, it’s finally Friday and after a long week, I like to be a little bit more adventurous with my hair in an attempt to pick my spirits back up. Since our Wednesday curls suck at this point, buns are really the only option, but since we got that Friday feeling, not just any regular buns. If you’re up to it, give these cute, yet edgy “space buns” a try:

Add a bit of colour on the lips to make the look a bit more edgy (I used MAC’s Chestnut lip liner and MAC’s Matte Lipstick in “Antique Velvet”)

If you want a softer look, keep the lips neutral and let the hairstyle speak for itself.

Ok, it’s finally the weekend, no need to prep your hair because today, all we’ll do is a super easy and comfortable low ponytail. This hairstyle looks put together but still laidback, perfect for a Saturday adventure.

Sunday: your hair is probably super dry and begging for a good deep conditioning and pamper session, but if you’re like me, that’ll have to wait because today is the day to run some errands and get everything set for next week. You don’t have much time to waste on a hairstyle because it’s going to be washed anyways, so just throw your hair on a simple low bun and handle your business! I added an orangey-red lipstick (MAC’s “Chestnut” lip liner in the perimeter of my lips and Caryl Baker’s lipstick in “Hawaiian Heat” in the center) to my low bun to look a bit more sophisticated and put-together.

    Love these hairstyles they are giving me ideas on no fuss styles for during the week. It’s hard to pick a favourite… love the space buns though. Are you using any gel to slick the front down or do you just brush and go?
