A Roundup of Weekend-Ready Hairstyles


During frantic weekday mornings, the last thing I’m thinking about is trying out a new hairstyle. I pull my hair back into a loose bun as I’m running out the door. Over the weekend there tends to be some more downtime, so why not use those extra minutes to play around with fun, creative styles? From braids to chignons to messy waves, get inspired by checking out these gorgeous styles we discovered on Instagram!

Braided pigtails are not just for the playground anymore. The classic style gets an edgy update. (Photo via incredible hair inspiration account @InstaBraid.)

Sleek and chic! A long, singular braid (with not one hair out of place) was the signature style at Proenza Schouler’s NYFW show. (Photo via @InstaBraid)


Flower crowns can potentially look costume-y, but a few delicate flowers intertwined with an updo looks romantic, not cheesy. This beautiful look by @KayleyMelissa is so ethereal. It would make for a memorable wedding look!

Wrapping your hair around your ponytail instantly upgrades the look to evening, not gym, appropriate. Love the messy take on it by @KayleyMelissa. Spritz your hair with a sea salt spray, like Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray, for the just-back-from-the-beach look.

Arguably the most popular haircut for fall: a choppy lob with messy waves. It’s such an effortlessly cool style that complements so many face shapes. (Photo via @Kristin_Ess) beachy waves article

Supermodel Lily Aldridge went for the same hair texture, with longer hair, leaving the ends straight. Grab your curling iron (the Amika one is fantastic) and try the look out for yourself. (Photo via @TracyCunningham1)


A low, twisted bun, tied at the nape of your neck, is so elegant. The angles framing her face are just perfect. This look would work beautifully for everything from a Sunday brunch to a black tie affair. (Photo via @MaraRoszak)


Love ’em or hate ’em, everyone should admit that the Kardashians have an a major impact on the beauty world. Their hair and makeup looks are discussed daily, and this slicked-back look sported by Kourtney K. is on point. So trendy right now, and easy to recreate. Pull up your hair at the crown, tease it, comb it back and spray with some heavy-duty hairspray. (Photo via @JenAtkinHair)


Short, choppy, messy: this is the It-style of the fall. No contest. (Photo via @AnhCoTran)


Kate Bosworth is flawless. To complement her bold red lips, she kept the hair simple – sleek and straight with lots of shine! Invest in a great flat iron to emulate the look. CHI flat irons are the best, and they’re not too pricey. (Photo via @HarryJoshHair)



A great hairstyle option for brunch: a half-up top knot. This look has been popping up on Instagram a lot the past few months, but what sets this interpretation by @HabitSalon apart is the little braid up top. How cute?


For those lazy Sundays, just toss your hair up into a good ol’ top knot. Need a little help achieving the style? Use Conair’s Bun Maker! (Photo via @JuliaHengel)


Updo meets bow – this is gorgeous girly hair at its finest! (Photo via @WhatLydiaLikes)


The makeup in this look, posted by @Allure, is absolutely stunning – cranberry eyes are a fall classic – but the hair takes it to the next level! So cool.
