Sometimes, you think you need a haircut, but you really just want a new hairstyle. You don’t actually want a fringe — you just want your hair to look different, maybe more interesting than it does at this very moment.
So, it’s worth first digging into your box of headbands and scrunchies, thinking beyond your routine claw-clip bun. The creative options are endless, but there are three particular hairstyles that are popping up everywhere this August.
Ahead, scroll through to check them out. Try out pigtail braids, or restyle that padded headband you forgot about. Wear your favourite style now, and straight through the season’s final heatwave. You’ll look chic and spare yourself potential post-chop regrets.
Gossip Girl Headband
Chalk it up to the Gossip Girl reboot: Since the show aired we’ve seen a steady influx of influencers, like Chillhouse brand founder Cyndi Ramirez-Fulton, bringing the Blair Waldorf headband back to the streets of NYC.
Even if the closest you’ll get to Revolve Around The World is your Instagram or TikTok feed, you can use Olivia Culpo’s most recent vacation hair — topped with a classic padded headband — to help inspire your August staycation style.
If we’re talking summer “loungewear” hairstyles, Zoë Kravitz nails it by styling her braids in a simple half-up ponytail tied with a cream-coloured silk scrunchie.
The half-up bun is another option that looks especially gorgeous if you have natural texture like model Andrea Baldrias. The style pulls your hair off your face, but allows the curls to still have a moment.<
Outer Banks star Madison Bailey recently wore pigtail-style fishtail braids and all of a sudden, we wanted to wear pigtail braids, too.
We might also suggest styling your own pigtail braids like model Lily Aldridge: with an ice-cold cocktail in hand.
