Summer is drawing to a close. For many of us, it’s time to step into the “back to school” zone! Maybe you’ve enjoyed a recent staycation and you’re prepping yourself mentally and physically for a return to work. Chances are both of those activities are going to be carried out virtually for the time being. But that “new term” sense of excitement is still real. So too is the last-minute desire to freshen up your look for all those virtual hangouts in-coming.
These days, pretty much everything has a convenient, easy to access online alternative. The classroom, community center, boardroom, and fitness studio just got a makeover! Now is the perfect time for a little revamp of your own. After all, you never know who might be swiping into the virtual chat room. It’s time to embrace all things digital dah-lings and get with the new virtual program.
Nothing signals a back to school hair vibe better than a fresh new “do”. So why not try out one of these cute hairstyles? They’re perfect for virtual classes, even on those days when you oversleep!
Pinned Side Part
We love the stylish simplicity of this look. Part the hair down the middle with a comb, spray the hair with N4’s Sugar Texturizing Spray to create naturally textured, non-sticky waves, then pin a couple of your favorite barrettes or statement slides down the side, about an inch or two apart. This is a sophisticated take on a classic school girl look. It’s perfect for the A-star students among you.
Slicked Back High Pony
Always a staple style for busy students and mums on the run, elevate your typical ponytail by adding extra height and shine. Comb some of N4’s Blow Dry Lotion through wet or towel-dried hair to add some drama before securing the hair in an elastic towards the crown of your head. This style is one for the cheerleaders among you! Striving to be ahead of the competition.
Add a Silk Headband
We get it, working and studying from home it’s tempting to hit the snooze button on your alarm. If you’ve skipped the shower (again) and your hair is beyond help, there’s no need to switch off your camera! Instead, grab a beautiful statement silk scarf and secure around your head. Tease out some strands of hair around the crown and spray with lots of N4 Mighty Hair Spray to secure in place.
Scrunchie Low Ponytail
Finally, this is a low maintenance, lazy girl’s delight. Zero effort, zero drama, but still maximum impact. It’s like treating your hair to its very own relaxing spa day. Simply gather hair at the base of the neck and secure with a cutesy patterned scrunchie. A quick slick of N4’s Smoothing Balm to hold stray stands in place and you are done! You could say, it’s elementary!
