Due to the recent pandemic, most jobs and meetings are now online. With team conference calls, you probably don’t want to look like you just rolled out of bed (even if you did). If you’re struggling with the last part here are 5 easy hairstyles you can try for naturally curly hair.
The Half Up Half Down
The half up half down hairstyle is an extremely versatile look because you can turn it into a bun, a ponytail, two buns, a braided bun, a braided ponytail, and the list goes on! You can be very creative with this look and all you need is a brush, ponytail holders, water, a little gel (for a sleek look), and maybe some bobby pins! All you need to do is part your hair half up half down, take the top part and spritz it with some water, add some gel and smooth down the top part and create a ponytail. From there you can choose if you want to turn the ponytail into a bun or leave it as is. This hairstyle is great because it can bring out the natural highlights in your hair, but it also extenuates your face and everyone in the Zoom meeting will be able to see that smile!
The Messy Bun
A messy bun is a great hairstyle for when you’re on the go, or when you wake up only 10 minutes before your meeting! To make it really cute may take a bit of practice, patience, and sometimes luck! Jump out of the bed and run to the mirror, grab all your hair and put it to the top of your head, pull a few strands out by your ears, and in front of your face to add a cutesy look to it. Then create your messy bun using a few bobby pins so that it’s not too perfect. Now you’re all ready to run your meeting and no one will know you got up 10 minutes ago!
Deep Side Part with Accessories
If you have a little more time on your hands before your Zoom meeting, a deep side part is a great way to show off your super defined curls and your cute hair accessories. All you need to do is part your hair as far over on one side as you can. Then take a brush, a little gel, and a little bit of water to slick the little side of your hair behind your ear. Add your cute accessory and it will definitely pop! No accessories? No worries! AliExpress is a great website to get some cute hair accessories!
Lastly, don’t be afraid to rock your hair as-is for your meeting! As long as it doesn’t look like you just stepped out of bed, you are going to look amazing! Just make sure to refresh those curls with a nice curl refreshing spray like this one from Black-owned Mielle Organics or mix a little bit of water and leave-in conditioner in a spray bottle and spray away! Even if your computer camera isn’t high-quality, everyone will be able to see those refreshed and defined curls.
The world has completely changed as you know it, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still look good while being at home! Try out some of these hairstyles for your next Zoom meeting and never look like you rolled out of bed ever again! And don’t forget, always lay your edges!
