How often have you worn a hair accessory since the lockdown was put in place? Add a fun twist to your otherwise boring WFH attire by wearing a fun, bright outfit and teaming it up with a similar coloured headband. It will take the focus away from your overgrown tresses.

Talking about hair accessories, if you didn’t invest in any headbands or think they’re not made for you, take inspiration from Hina Khan. The actress has been accessorizing her low ponytail with cute bows lately and we are loving it!

Messy buns, braids and ponytails are all we’ve been sporting throughout lockdown (knowingly and unknowingly). A messy chignon is an effortless and stylish way to style your overgrown hair. Simply twist your hair and tie into a loose low bun — let a few strands loose and secure with bobby pins.

Overgrown bangs forcing you to reach for that pair of scissors? Don’t, you are going to regret it, instead twist those bangs and secure at the back of your head to create a fun half-up half-down hairstyle.

If your hair is not only outgrown, but damaged and looks lifeless too, cover it up with a hat, bandana or hoodie. Get those vacay feels right at home — because who knows when you’ll finally be able to!
