Ways To Rock A Mask This Memorial Day Weekend

Remember when Memorial Day Weekend came with a whole set of fashion rules? For example, white before this day was strictly prohibited, and nautical was strongly encouraged. However, now that we’ve got bigger fish to fry (like a pandemic), some of the rules have fallen to the wayside. It’s hard to focus on staying trendy when safety calls for gloves and masks.

But that doesn’t mean that we have to abandon it altogether! Let’s face it: Masks are part of the new normal, at least for right now. As we attempt to adapt to our new way of life, fashion is struggling to catch up. But, just because we have to wear a mask in public doesn’t mean that we can’t work it! Why not have a little fun with it? Here are some great hairstyles to wear this Memorial Day Weekend, and some unique ways to celebrate!

Waves and a Summer-Hat for a Stroll Through The Town

Who said masks can’t be an accessory? For some reason, they look pretty swanky when paired with a nice summer hat. To give this look some body, you’ll want to add some nice breezy waves. Creating this look is easy as most of it is taken care of with the hat; however, you’ll need to use a medium-sized curling iron to create those loose waves. Because you’ll be walking, make sure to spritz them with a dash of hairspray. There’s something liberating about having a day out on the town again, even if it is with a mask. Take advantage of the nice weather and give yourself a reason to wear that summer hat that’s been wasting away in your closet!

A Serious Pony For A Social Distancing Drink

A low ponytail is one of the chicest ways to wear a mask. If you fancy yourself a high-fashion lady, this is going to be the look for you. We suggest straightening your hair with a styler first and adding some shine mist to make it extra sleek. You can also take a note from this model and use a silk scarf as a mask. In case you were wondering, this means that the Hermès scarf might actually be good for your health… Just saying. If you’re going to put this kind of effort into your look, you may as well see some people, right? There are ways to enjoy a drink while social distancing. Just make sure to stay at least six feet apart!

Short And Textured For A Day At The Park

Short hair pairs perfectly with a mask because it’s completely out of the way. It’s a nice way to frame your face without having to deal with a face full of hair. To add some personality to your shorter locks, you can tousle them with styling mousse. The texture will add some dimension to the look and make you feel like you are actually celebrating something, rather than having another day stuck in the house. If a park is open around you, we suggest taking advantage of it! Just be sure to stay safely distanced from strangers. If you’ve got friends or family quarantining with you, it could be fun to enjoy a nice picnic in the sun! With your hair freshly styled, you’ll be ready-to-go for the inevitable Instagram photoshoot that will ensue.
