Since our little corner of the world has "returned to normal", we have noticed that women's low-maintenance hairstyles and haircuts for the lazy girl are rising. One of the easiest ways to do this is by embracing being brunette.
Low maintenance hairstyles for women
Who has time to spend an hour straightening or curling every morning? No matter the natural texture, hair type, layers, face shape or curtain bangs, wash and go haircuts are in. A low maintenance style won't add precious minutes to your morning routine.
Low maintenance haircuts and medium length hair are easy to style and demand minimal upkeep. These are perfect for ladies seeking a polished look every day. Styling medium length hair is effortless. You can put your hair up in a bun or ponytail. Of course, you can also straighten it or add some volume with soft curls. A quick, effortless style to stop you from having a bad hair day.
Thick hair or curly hair
Avoid cutting your hair above the shoulders if you have thick or curly hair. It makes your hair look thicker or curlier than it actually is. Taking the weight off can cause the strands to spring up.
If you have long, straight or wavy hair, blunt layers flatter thick hair. Or consider long layers around your face for a flattering style. It will speed up styling and give you more movement.
Thin and fine hair
You can't go wrong with a low-maintenance lob - a long bob - when it comes to thin or fine hair. Add some iQ Styling Mousse or iQ Structure Spray, turn your head upside down, and scrunch the hair as you dry it to really emphasise fullness. Tousle the hair from underneath rather than combing it out.
Cascading layers on long hair can create the illusion of volume with minimal styling. Adding a choppy fringe alongside longer layers brings out the best in straight hair. The cut looks perfect with highlights, balayage or lived in roots.
Low-maintenance hair care
The main thing to remember with low maintenance hairstyles is to have regular trims to keep your hair in shape. Regular trims will help things look sharp. For shorter cuts, the look can overgrow fast because of the way they frame the face. On longer hair, it helps it keep its distinctiveness. We recommend every 6-8 weeks.
Of course, using salon-quality shampoos and conditioners will keep your hair in top condition. Our shop has fantastic ranges, including iQ Haircare, Yellow for curls, shine and frizz, and world-renowned Olaplex. You can also purchase a bespoke colour mask for coloured treated hair.
Easy to style hair
With the increasingly busy lives we lead nowadays, our hair and beauty regimen must be easy to maintain. Low-maintenance haircuts and hairstyles don't have to be boring or underwhelming. In fact, they can be easy to style and chic at the same time.
