Hair Ideas For Every Activity Of Your Week
We know how hard it is to break out of your wash-and-go hair habits but it’s easier than you think. From Monday night spin class to Sunday morning brunch, we’ve created your very own hair schedule to go with your ultra-busy lifestyle. These transitional looks will get you to and from in style, without hours of prep time and not one topknot in sight.
Monday: For The Office
Monday: Spin Class
Tuesday: Second Day Office Hair
Believe it or not, you can achieve a bouncy blowout on second day hair. Separate hair into sections and spray with a dry shampoo. Blowdry with a round thermal brush, paying extra attention to lifting at the roots and curling the ends. Finish off with a freshly scented hair perfume.

Tuesday: Dinner With The Girls
Never underestimate the power of a good braided style to up the edge on your pretty ensemble. Create an organic part down the middle of your hair and french braid each side. Keeping the braid close your hairline creates a crown. To achieve this, grab shorter sections of the front and longer in the back when adding to the next plait.

Wednesday: For That Big Meeting
This look is an easy go-to for when you're running out the door in the morning. Pull hair back, as if you were going to tie a low pony and twist inward toward the nape of the neck. Secure with bobby pins and let the rest of your hair hang freely. Spritz with a finishing spray and you're good to go.

Wednesday: Date Night
Thursday: Office Lunch
A low bun always looks polished and put-together. For an on-trend approach, part hair straight down the middle and pull into a low pony. Tease the top of your pony and twist, beginning at the ends until the bun begins to form itself. Pin all around to secure and add some pretty accessories for added femininity. Seal the look with a shine-enhancing hairspray.

Thursday: Happy Hour
When you're ready to let your bun down at the end of the day, your hair will have a natural wave to it. Brush hair out with a flat bristle brush and tease at the roots. Make a deep side part and pin hair on one side. This look works best with natural fly-aways and pretty imperfections, so keep products to a minimum.

Friday: Beach Day
The easiest way to achieve these gorgeous beach waves is to turn a hairstyle into a new hairstyle. The night before, apply a sea salt spray from roots to ends. Part hair in the middle and braid hair in sections; small sections will give hair a fuller, wavier look. In the morning, let braids loose and separate with a wide tooth comb.

Friday: Night On The Town
Don't be put off by how stunning this style looks; it's not nearly as complicated as it looks. Create a deep side part and keep a section from this part to behind your ear, saved off to the side. French braid all remaining hair and tuck the tail under, pinning to secure. With the front section, work in a shine pomade and pin in a finger wave formation. We told you it was easy.

Saturday: Morning Errands
Bangs can go south in a blink of an eye. If you want to try the bang look without the long-term commitment, get yourself a pair of clip-ons. They're easy, temporary and can transform your look with no effort at all. To keep them in place all day long, tease hair and spray with hairspray before clipping.
Saturday: Girls' Night Out
There's nothing better than a full head of curls swept to one side for GNO. Blowdry hair with a round vented brush, focusing on adding extra volume to the roots. Separate hair into sections and curl hair with a one inch wand. Create a deep side-part and sweep all hair to one side. Tame flyaways with a shine pomade and pin hair at the nape of your neck to secure.

For a pretty update to last night's look, keep the deep side part and pull hair into a low pony behind your ear. Secure with an elastic and wrap a small section of hair around to hide. Secure and tame fussy bangs with simple bobby pins.
