It’s time to let the week go – we’ll do it together.
In deepest lockdown, most of us did very little in the way of hairstyling. Instead, we became familiar with hair masks and, I imagine, purchased Olaplex like it was going out of fashion. Slicked-back low-buns ruled the Zoom call and, to their credit, they did us a lot of good.
However, that was then and this is now; post-lockdown life is all about doing the things that bring beauty and romance into our lives. And that includes doing the most, at all times.
Grabbing a coffee, popping out for lunch, strolling around the park, or perusing a market all seem to necessitate a curated aesthetic. That Acne Scarf I can’t move two metres for seeing, curtain bangs – everywhere, and wraparound Matrix-esque sunglasses are the vibe for almost every casual occasion. And, while the thought of dressing specifically for these little social moments seems like a lot, I love that we’ve leaned back into revelling in the things we like.
So, if you’ve stayed true to a slicked-back low-bun for a few months now, I offer eight-weekend hairstyles to try instead.
