Whether you’re hosting friends and family this Thanksgiving or just attending someone else’s fête, there are bound to be a ton of photos documenting the affair. But alas, a midweek soirée doesn’t leave much time for finding time to practice and execute a fancy new hairstyle. Get ready to feel thankful. Below, check out nine lazy-girl-approved yet photo-ready hairstyles to inspire you for Thursday’s events.
The wavy bob became mega-popular for a reason. The easiest way to create lose waves in a pinch is with the Drybar 3-Day Bender 1.25-Inch Digital Curling Iron ($135).
To create the loose-wave look on long hair, follow the same tip from the first slide. We also love the idea of just tossing on a Topshop Wool Blend Beret Hat ($30) and calling it a day.
Want to upgrade your bob but don’t have time to go full-curl? Add volume and a little tuck to the ends as you blow-dry with the Amika Bombshell Blowout Thermal Brush ($100).
Have long hair? Pull it back in a low ponytail and clip at the neck with the Sylvain Le Hen Barrette XL in Pink Gold ($65).
This is not only easy, but it looks better as the day goes on. Create a deep side part and start braiding your hair forward. It should take about two minutes tops.
To get this look, follow our boxer braid tutorial, stopping at the nape of the neck. To create the kinked look on the ends, spritz a little Living Proof Flex Shaping Hairspray ($24) and wrap loose hair in a coiled bun. Let it set while you apply your makeup. The kinks should be in full swing in less than 10 minutes.
We are obsessed with Jane Aldridge’s perfectly side-swept bangs here. Create the look with hair up or down by brushing bangs into a part with a GHD Paddle Brush ($55) as you dry hair.
This individual cornrow braid is ideal for those blessed with high cheekbones. It also comes in handy for those European cheek-kiss greetings that can often result in awkward hair caught in stubble moments.
