With cooler weather approaching and the leaves changing, it's the perfect time to plan that trip you want to take and soak in all things fall.
And with everything you have to pack, plan, and buy, the last thing you want to worry about on your vacation is what to do with your hair.
Instead of spending tons of time in the morning getting ready before you head out for your adventures, it would be nice just to have a few easy hairstyles in mind that will not only match your outfit for the day but are a snap to do. Luckily, we've picked four you can try that will fit almost any hair type.
Pack a Scarf
Using a scarf in your hair can be an easy way to bring a look together. Not only can you choose a scarf that complements your style, but you can use it in a variety of ways, no matter the length or texture of your hair.
Here are some ways you can use a scarf for a quick and easy hairdo:
- Use it as a headband
- Drape it over your hair and tie it at the nape of your neck with your hair up or down
- Incorporate the scarf into a braid
- Pull your hair up in a ponytail and use it as a tie
- Channel Jackie O and use the scarf over your hair and tie it under your chin
Update the Classics
Sometimes simple means just sticking with the classics like a ponytail, low pigtails, or braids. But that doesn't mean you can't add a little spice to level up what you do at home. In addition to using a scarf, think about other accessories you could add to your hair to bring a little something extra special while you're on vacation.
Including barrettes or jeweled bobby pins to your hair can add a bit of interest to your updo. Not only that, they're simple to add and can change up your look in an instant.
Hats Change Everything
Bringing a couple of hats on your travels is a surefire way to beat a bad hair day. And while adding a hat isn't exactly a hairstyle, you probably still have some hair to contend with unless the hat covers the entirety of your head. If you usually have straight hair, consider curling the hair that's still showing and if you typically have curly hair, try straightening it.
Just be sure to check the weather at your destination spot, so you don't bring something too warm. For instance, if you're traveling to Georgia, you might want to leave the fur hat at home.
In fact, you may want to check with a local hair salon that specializes in locs and loc extensions in Atlanta for tips about dealing with the heat concerning your hair. The same goes for cold weather climates; salon tips from local stylists can be priceless.
Change Your Part
Perhaps one of the simplest changes to your hair can come from changing your part from the middle to the side or vice versa. You could even switch sides or try a zigzag part. Incorporating a different part can not only change the way your hair looks but how it behaves, which can be a good thing or a bad thing. Play around with yours until you find something you like.
Experiment With Style
Trying different hairstyles doesn't have to be dramatic. Changing small things about your hair or what you put in it or on it can change your whole look without permanently changing anything.
When is a better time to play with your looks than when you're on vacation and exploring new things? Maybe something you try with your hair on the road will make its way into your routine.
