Wear A Stylish Hat
We’re not saying you should grab your most stylish, outfit-matching hat whenever you’re in a rush or having a bad hair day – but if you did, nobody would ever notice, as they’d be admiring your fashion sense!
Big Vintage Curls
This is another entry inspired by the one & only Marilyn Monroe. Everything vintage is back in fashion, and we couldn’t be happier! If you’re a fan of the above-mentioned Marilyn Curls, but your blonde hair is slightly longer, opt for this equally stunning and looser version.

Chic French Beret
A Parisian touch is welcome in any context related to style! A pretty beret is a perfect way to add a bit of French flair to your hairstyle, regardless of length or texture.
Topknot Half Updo
If you feel that you can’t choose if you want to let your hair down or tie it in a bun for the day, why not do both? If you want to add a little bit of wow factor, you can braid two sections in the front, just as portrayed in the picture.

Super Short Braids
If your haircut is very short, like a pixie, you can still join in the fun of braiding it! The result looks unique and extremely trendy, and can be done in mere minutes.
If only our bed hair looked as fabulous as this! In the fortunate case in which yours does, consider yourself blessed and don’t be afraid to show it off! If not, mess it up a little with your curls for that ‘woke up like this’ vibe.
