Labor-less Labor Day Weekend Hairstyles!

Labor-less Labor Day Weekend Hairstyles!

With Labor Day fast approaching, it’s hard not to dwell on the close of the sunshine season. Though fall begins closer towards the end of September, people consider Labor Day to be summer's unofficial end, which is why folks love to live it up on Labor Day Weekend. People flock to The Hamptons or Palm Springs to celebrate with poolside champers. As it marks the informal transition into fall, the official Labor Day lookbook has always felt transitory.

The styles sit somewhere between flamingo floats and pumpkin spice. We’ve compiled some of our favorite hairstyles for you to try this Labor Day Weekend. Don’t worry, they are easy to pull off, and creating them will feel more ‘labor-of-love’ than ‘manual labor.’

 

Slick & Chic

This one is for the gals who want the straight hair vibe but don’t want it to look like they are ready to throw on some Juicy sweats circa 2006. In other words, they don’t want their hair looking too pin straight. If that speaks to you, then keep reading. Product is going to be your best friend in this case. More specifically, root lift spray and finisher are what you need in addition to a straightener or blow dryer.

Start by spritzing the root life onto your roots. If you have the type of locks that become straight with just a dryer, use that; however, if your hair is naturally curly you will need a straightener. When drying or straightening, don’t be too precise with your technique, and don’t straighten from the scalp. Allow some kinks to sneak their way in. Then, top off your look with finisher to give it a sleek textured look.

 

Invisibraids

Braids have always been a Labor Day look staple, but this is a braid with a twist (pun intended). It’s a braid that seems to have no end, like the infinity pool at your rented AirBnb. Though it appears to require a touch of whimsy, it couldn’t be easier to create.

Divide your hair into two sections and braid your locks as you normally would. The braids look best if they are the same size, so split your hair evenly in the back. If you’d prefer a side part, you can section the hair that frames your face. Don’t worry about the mismatched part as it’s just part of the deal. Once you’ve got your twists, grab a small amount of styling gel and smooth it along the end of your braids to lock them into place!

 


Woke-Up-Like-This Waves

This is a perfect Labor Day Weekend style because it looks effortless and actually gets better from one day to the next. It’s bedhead, but glam. To pull it off, you’ll want to start with volumizer to give your strands a boost. Blowdry your locks and then grab a curler with wide-barrel.

Most importantly, curl the mid-bottom of your length, starting just above your ends. This will allow you to dance the line between styled and ‘woke-up-like-this.’ Then, top off with a medium-hold finisher. If you can manage to keep your hair out of the pool, you can wear this look two days in a row. Again, it usually looks better on day two!

 

BohoBand

Hair accessories are always welcome on vacation, and are especially chic for the summer-to-fall transition. It’s also a strategic move for LDW as it can be used to turn pool or beach hair into a posh look. First, of course, you’ll need to get your hands on a silk scarf. For a style that should be a sinch, it takes a fair amount of finesse to get the scarf to sit right.

To begin, create a low bun. Allow either your bangs or some tendrils to frame your face. Then, fold your scarf in half to create a triangle. Fold it once more, into itself, to create a near-rectangular shape and place it on the top of your head (between your front tendrils and your bun). Finally, take the loose ends and tie them into a double-knot as the base of your neck.
