Weeks into quarantine and I couldn’t go to the hairdresser, I suddenly wanted to cut my bangs or do something to my hair – anything. Now I am so glad I didn’t.
IT COULD HAVE BEEN A DISASTER.
Interesting enough, I wasn’t alone. A lot of my friends had the same experience so I realized, feeling restless during the awkward stage hair is actually normal. lol
Let me tell you how I distracted that evil thought… braids, buns, headbands and clips. They saved me from a bad haircut!
In case you’re in the awkward hair stage, I suggest you read on and check out tips below.
Change your part
Sometimes, there’s really nothing wrong with our hair. It may be that we are bored and want some change. The easiest way to shake things up is to change your part. It also hides the awkward hair growth somehow.
Switch from a middle part to one positioned to the left or right or change from one-sided part to a middle part.
You might have to level up your usual crazy idgaf messy bun and make it look more clean and fancy. Check out some ideas below!
If you’re sooo close to cutting your own bangs, please pick up some hair pins and pin it away from your face for now. That way, you won’t have to always see it. Use some styling clay or gel, then secure the ends with a pretty barette or some hair pins/clips.
Braids are the best! You can learn one that’s easy and when you have one on you instantly look like you did a lot of effort.
I suck at braids but I have mastered one that works for my hair. I get jealous of other braid styles but I learned that I only really need to learn one. If you’re like me, then just learn one! Practice makes perfect!
Headbands, turbans and scarves
