8 Easy Hair Tips for Lazy Days 8 Easy Hair Tips for Lazy Days 8 Easy Hair Tips for Lazy Days

We all need a lazy day every once in a while—and that certainly extends to your hair care and hair styling routines. Not only can taking it easy on your hair help your sanity, but it can also help keep your strands at their healthiest. We know the last thing you want to do on your beloved lazy days is struggle with taming your strands into an acceptable hairstyle, and that’s exactly why we’re sharing our eight favorite easy hair tips for managing your mane—even on the laziest of days. From braids to easy updos to good old dry shampoo, here are eight easy hair tips for lazy days.

EASY HAIR TIP #1: SMOOTH FLYAWAYS WITH A TOOTHBRUSH

If your frizzy hair looks like it’s standing on end due to an overload of flyaways, there’s a hack for that. Just grab a clean toothbrush—not the one you use for your teeth—and the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold. Spritz your hair spray directly onto the bristles, then brush over your flyaways. This creative combo will take care of stray strands, helping to smooth them down and lock them right into place.

EASY HAIR TIP #2: GIVE YOUR PONY HEIGHT

A ponytail is the ultimate lazy girl style, but why not take yours to new heights? If your hairdo is looking limp, you can use bobby pins to pump it up. Simply pull your hair into your standard ponytail, placing it high on the back of your head. After securing with a hair tie, grab two bobby pins. Lift the ponytail straight up and insert two pins at the base. The pins should stick into your hair vertically, starting where your ponytail is. That’s it: The pins prop up your pony and instantly boost your hairstyle! It’s an easy way to add some dimension to the classic lazy-day hairstyle.

EASY HAIR TIP #3: BRAID YOUR WAY TO BEACHY WAVES

We bet you don’t want to deal with heat tools all the time—especially if you have the day off. Don’t worry—just because you’re laying off the irons and wavers doesn’t mean you can’t rock a stylish ‘do. Instead of using a curling wand to make waves, try braiding your hair before bed. Sleep with your hair in two tight braids, only letting your hair down once you’ve woken up. After removing your hair ties, finger comb through your locks for your hair to fall into beautiful beachy waves. For a touch more texture, finish with a mist, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Air-Blown Texture Mist. Spray and scrunch for a full-bodied, air-blown look.

EASY HAIR TIP #4: WASH ONLY YOUR BANGS

A lazy day is not the time to deal with shampooing your whole head first thing in the AM, but you don’t exactly want to traipse around with dirty tresses either. One happy medium is to only wash where you need to. Bangs are likely to become greasy before the rest of your hair, so wash only them with a purifying hair care system, like the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Conditioner. Cleanse and condition in the sink before giving your bangs a blast of heat with the blow-dryer. There you go: Your hair looks refreshed in a fraction of the time.

EASY HAIR TIP #5: CURL YOUR HAIR IN A PONY

If you want to create a fabulous curly style—while saving yourself some time—this is the trick for you. Starting with your hair in a ponytail, take small sections and curl them using a curling iron or wand. With your hair pulled up, there will be fewer sections to tackle and you can cut your styling time down significantly. Once you’ve completely curled all of the hair in your ponytail, simply let your locks down and run your fingers through. Finish with a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to help keep your curls in place.

EASY HAIR TIP #6: ADD ACCESSORIES

If your style is looking lackluster, nothing is a faster (and more lazy-friendly) fix than adding an accessory. Take your pick of headbands, pins, clips, and ties. One hair accessory that’s super trendy at the moment? Scrunchies! Throw it back to the nineties and use a scrunchie to tie your hair up into a top knot or a side-parted low bun. No matter your choice, adorning your hair with something special will immediately take your style to the next level. It’s a quick, easy hairstyle that’s perfect for those lazy days.

EASY HAIR TIP #7: TRY AN UNDONE STYLE

Instead of dedicating yourself to creating perfect-looking styles during your rare relaxation days, opt for undone, easy hair styles that look just as good. There's no need to waste time fussing with every piece of hair to get it just right, with these styles it's the messier the better.

EASY HAIR TIP #8: Dry shampoo

When all else fails, reach for the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo. It will help refresh your hair without leaving any residue, and it can also provide a bit of a volume boost—perfect for those days when you just can’t be bothered to pick up any hot tools. We totally get it and assure you that this is exactly why every girl needs a bottle of dry shampoo in their bathroom or on their vanity.
