7 Easy Hair Tips for Lazy Days 7 Easy Hair Tips for Lazy Days 7 Easy Hair Tips for Lazy Days

The last thing we want to do on our beloved lazy days is struggle with taming our strands into an acceptable style. That’s exactly why we’re sharing our seven favorite hair tips for managing your mane—even on the laziest of days.

Hair Tip #1: Smooth Flyaways with a Toothbrush

If your 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—a.k.a. not the one you use for your teeth—and the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold. Spritz your hairspray directly onto the bristles and then brush over your flyaways. This creative combo will take care of stray strands, helping to smooth them down and lock them into place.

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!

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've got 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, braid 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-body, air-blown look.

Hair Tip #4: Wash Only Your Bangs

A lazy day is not the time to deal with shampooing your whole head, but you don’t exactly want to traipse around with dirty tresses either. The happy medium is to only wash exactly what you need to. Bangs are likely to become greasy before the rest of your hair, so simply wash only them with a purifying hair care system, like the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Extraordinary Clay Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert 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.

Hair Tip #5: Curl Your Hair in a Pony

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

Hair Tip #6: Add Accessories

If your style is looking lackluster, nothing is a faster (and lazy-friendly) fix than adding an accessory. Take your pick of headbands, pins, clips, and ties. No matter your choice, just adorn your hair with something special to immediately take your style to the next level.

Hair Tip #7: Try an Undone Style

Instead of dedicating yourself to creating perfect looking styles during your fleeting relaxation days, opt for undone styles that look just as good. No need to waste time fussing with every piece of hair to get it just right, the messier the better.
