When the bad hair days turn into whole bad hair weeks, it may be time for a few new hairstyling tricks: Here are the best hairstyles for a well-groomed look despite lockdown.
Of course, there are much more difficult problems in Corona times than not going to the hairdresser - no question about it. Nevertheless, we would like to devote ourselves to the smaller everyday problems and make your morning routine easier with a few tips and tricks. And bad hair days are just annoying because they usually cost us a lot of time in the morning and put us in a bad mood.
To save you from plucking and trying things out in front of the mirror despite lockdown and closed hairdressing salons, here we show you the top hairstyles that make your hair look fresh and well-groomed.
Generous tip trimming is long overdue and the hair lengths appear dull and frayed? Not so wild, because luckily there are a number of hairstyles that your hair in excess length is perfect for. Our clear favorite is the bubble braid. The low-set braid not only looks particularly casual, but it also works in no time at all.
Here's how it works: Simply tie your hair in a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. Then, depending on the length of your hair, wrap more hair ties down around the braid. Alternatively, the hair can be braided loosely. If you like, you can also use a cool statement hair clip or an elegant scarf instead of the first elastic for the ponytail.
On some days, nothing helps: The hair hangs down flat in strands or stands out indomitable in all directions. In that case, bun hairstyles can save the styling. They are incredibly versatile and can usually be re-styled in a flash.
Our favorite among the buns is the low bun. It can be worn casually in a messy look as well as elegantly and smoothly combed. As a chic hairstyle for the evening, it can also be refined with bobby pins, hair bands, or curly strands at the front.
Here's how it works: Comb your hair into a neat ponytail at the nape of the neck. Then twist them into a bun and secure them with bobby pins or a second elastic band. The bun holds especially well with a trendy scrunchie. For the popular "Undone" variant, tie your hair like a ponytail, but don't pull it all the way through the elastic at the end so that a loop knot is created. Then pull out a few more hairs on the sides. This makes them look particularly casual.
Good news for everyone whose bangs have long since ceased to end above their eyes: tiered cuts and curtain bangs are among the most popular hairstyle trends in 2021 and there has perhaps never been a better opportunity to simply try out the popular looks.
The French hair step cut has two advantages: On the one hand, the hairstyle works for both long hair and long bobs. On the other hand, the bangs are deliberately worn a little too long in this look. So that this works and the strands of hair do not get into the eyes, the hair including the bangs is parted in the middle and wiped off the face during styling so that the shortest steps end at eye level. The hair should deliberately look a bit disheveled - that's what makes the French cut so casual and timeless.
Your bangs are not long enough for the French hair look? Then curtain bangs (translated: "curtain bangs") could be interesting for you. Here, too, the bangs are divided in the middle so that the face gets a nice frame. To prevent the hair from falling on your face, you can blow dry it diagonally to the side with a round brush so that the bangs point outwards on both sides. Finally, fix the look with a little hairspray - done!
Do you have two left hands when it comes to hairstyling? Then a headband can be the perfect temporary solution. The headband can not only make an outgrown pony disappear by tucking it backward. It is also super easy to hide a noticeable hairline and gives you a completely new look in no time.
Colorful headbands, for example, made of velvet, are great. They make simple outfits look fresher and more interesting and cheat us a few years younger. If you prefer elegant looks, it is best to use tires in classic colors such as black, white, or gray. Alternatively, you can use a silk scarf. Simply put it on top of your head and in the desired position and tie it under the loose hair at the neck.
This hairstyle trick is also super simple, but effective. Eye-catching statement hair clips or XXL bobby pins are still popular and get the hair into shape in no time. The clasps or pins are worn either at the front to keep strands of hair out of the face. Alternatively, you can wear the accessories on the back of your head in combination with a ponytail or bun.
It becomes particularly noble with clasps in gold or silver. It is best to match the color with that of the jewelry you prefer to wear. Important so that your look does not appear overloaded: the more eye-catching and pompous your hair accessory, the more delicate the jewelry.
