If trying out new hairstyles falls low on your list of weekend priorities, we don’t blame you. After all, who wants to spend quality time with their hair when there are mimosas to be sipped and brunches to be devoured? You might start to feel a bit sheepish, however, when you show up for said brunch with yet another rendition of the hairstyle your friends have deemed the WHLND (What Happened Last Night ‘Do). To give your weekend hair some help, we’re sharing three chic, easy hairstyles that anyone can master—yes, even you in your groggy, post-imbibing state. You can thank us with a cocktail (or two).

Lazy girls, rejoice—this hairstyle works best on day-two (or three) hair. First, give your strands a spritz of texturizing spray, like Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray ($42), to add volume to your roots and give your locks more grip. Then, grab your strands as if you were going to make a ponytail and loop them under with the ends exposed. Wrap a thin hair elastic around your undone half-bun, pin any stray strands in place with a bobby pin, and finish with another spritz of texturizing spray.
It’s time to get knotty…with your hair. First, spray a sea salt spray, like Josie Maran’s Bohemian Waves Argam Hair Mist Texture Volume & Moisture ($22), into your damp strands and scrunch to create beachy waves. Then, divide your hair in half and hold one half in each hand. Tie the strands together as if you were making a knot, then repeat—yes, you just double-knotted your hair and yes, it looks amazing. Slide a sticky pin or two underneath to secure it in place and toss that knotty pony!
Barrettes are making a comeback, and we’re totally on board. To recreate this playful look, start at the roots: backcomb with a comb or teasing brush like Revlon’s Moonlight Teasing Brush ($4) to create major volume. Then, gather your strands at the nape of your neck and twist into a bun. Secure it in place with bobby pins or a thin hair elastic. Finish by pinning the wispy strands framing your face back with three (or more) colorful barrettes. So fresh, so chic!
