Styling your hair takes a little more effort when you’re traveling. No matter if you’re all set to go on a trip with your friends or spend time with your loved one in an exotic place, it can be challenging to find a low-maintenance hairstyle.
While it’s always a good idea to carry along essential hair styling tools and products for long vacations, you’ll want to spend more time enjoying your trip than styling your hair. But at the same time, you want to rock a beautiful hairstyle and capture Instagram-worthy photos. Here are some tips to get you through.
What if Your Hair Lacks Length and Volume?
If you’re concerned about your short, thin, or less voluminous hair, we recommend you get a set of clip-in extensions for your next trip. Clip-in wefts are best for traveling because you can apply and remove them yourself within a matter of minutes.
Clip-in human hair extensions are low maintenance, you can use them to create many different styles, and they look entirely natural. These extensions instantly add volume, thickness, and length to your hair. And, with a little bit of care, you can wear them comfortably throughout your vacation.
Be sure, however, to buy a set of high-quality human hair extensions like Zala clip-in hair extensions. These extensions are silky and smooth, last longer, and blend perfectly with natural hair.
4 Easy and Low Maintenance Travel Hairstyles
You want simple travel-friendly hairstyles that require little to no restyling or maintenance during your excursion. Simple hairstyles also don’t require you to pack too many products and styling tools.
Here’re some beautiful but easy hairstyles for your next trip.
1. Fishtail Braid
Braids are among the most popular travel hairstyles as they cause less hair breakage than styles like ponytails. A fishtail braid is simple to achieve but gives you a sophisticated look.
Follow these steps to create the fishtail braid:
- Start off by dividing your hair into two equal portions.
- Grab a small section from the outer area of the left portion, swaddle it over the tip of the left part, and then insert it under the right portion.
- Repeat step 2 on the next side, taking a small section from the right side and tugging it under the left section.
- Continue this process, alternating between the right and left segments until the braiding is complete.
- Finally, use a hair tie to hold your hairstyle in place, and you’re good to go!
2. Messy Bun With a Headband
The messy bun is our favorite travel hairstyle because you can achieve it within 10 to 15 seconds. Perfect for airplane travel! On top of that, it adds a dash of style to your overall look and hides any oily roots.
Here’s how you can get this hairstyle:
- Make your hair into a ponytail and then form it into a bun of your choice, beginning from the base.
- Put a hair tie around the bun while leaving out some loose strands.
- Take your preferred headband and cloak it around the bun.
This hairstyle also works best with clip-in hair extensions in case your hair lacks length and volume.
3. Half-Up Top Knot
Yet another quick hairstyle, the half-up top knot is your best travel companion. It works perfectly even if your hair has greasy roots. In fact, it makes you look your very best even with a little bit of dirty hair.
Here’s how to get this hairstyle: Apply a tiny portion of dry shampoo (powder version) to the roots of your hair. Then, take the top half section of your hair and form it into a messy top knot.
Hurray, you’ve achieved the half-up top knot! That was quick, wasn’t it?
4. Low Side Braid
Whether you’re traveling in a car or an airplane, you don’t want your hair to rub against the headrest because it can be pretty damaging and uncomfortable. With a low side braid, you can rest assured this won’t happen.
This travel hairstyle is the easiest of all; just tug your hair to the side and create a braided hairstyle. Now use a hair tie to hold it in place, and you’re done! For the strands above your collarbone, it is a good idea to use a bobby pin to keep them in place.
