With physical distancing measures in effect all across the country, virtual meetings have become the name of the game. Since many hair salons and barbershops are still on lockdown, getting yourself together can be a challenge. So, here are some quick, no-fuss styles for your WFH Zoom calls. The best part? You can achieve some of these looks with items you probably already have around the house!
Wrap It Up
No matter your hair woes, a well-tied wrap can take you from meh to Mayvenn in a flash. Keep it simple with an easy bun style. Just knot your wrap at the front or top of your head. Then, wrap the ends around to make a bun. Tuck in the ends or use a hair tie to hold the bun in place. For more flair, explore some YouTube tutorials. There’s tons of intricate styles you can try.
To keep your wrap look more understated for a conservative workplace, stick to solid colors in neutral shades like black, brown, and navy. You can also consider tone-on-tone patterns with less contrast. If you work in a more casual or creative environment, go wild with bold colors and patterns. No one thinks twice about your hair when your wrap is the star of the show!
Keep in mind that you can make a headwrap out of any fabric you have at home. I’ve seen headwraps made out of anything from scarves to turtlenecks. Get creative!
When was the last time you let your hair fly free? This break from the salon provides a perfect opportunity to experiment with wash-n-go styling. Regardless of your hair texture, you can rock a gorgeous wash-n-go. Be sure to wet and moisturize your hair often to keep it supple and soft.
If curl definition is what you’re after, play with the twist outs and flexi rod sets you may not have had time for when you were commuting to work.
Or skip the braids, twists, and rollers to go with the simplest option — your natural texture. After washing and conditioning your hair, simply apply a moisturizing styler and let your natural curls, coils, or kinks shine. Keep the look interesting with a cute headband or scarf from your closet, or pin one side back with those bobby pins that always manage to end up all over the house.
Wear a Wig
Looking for a quick, convenient way to change up your look? Flex on your teammates with a stylish wig! This is one of the easiest ways to get that salon look without leaving home. Newbies, try a ready-to-wear wig for an easy way to get your proverbial feet wet. Pick a style with a bang if you're worried about how to make your hairline look natural. Our Edgy Edna is a great style for a sleek bob, or go long with our 20” Notorious Naomi unit.
Lace wigs are a fabulous option for versatile styles that look like they grew out of your scalp. Our Virgin Lace Front Wigs and Virgin 360 Lace Wigs offer flexible styling options, whether you want to switch up your part or throw your hair into a ponytail.
Even though your favorite salon may be closed right now, it’s easy to look great on your video calls. Be adaptable, use things you have around the house, or try something new! Bonus tip: everyone looks better in the right light. A cheap ring light (or a light source placed in front of you) will transform the way you look on camera. Give it a try.
