Joyjah is constantly serving up the most bomb looks, and this braided bun is no exception. To get the look, simply snatch your hair into a high ponytail, braid your pony, then wrap it into a bun and secure with a hair-tie or pin. Et voila! We also love the perfectly laid baby hairs, but that’s gonna take some extra time!

If you’re trying to keep your protective hairstyle fresh, wash your hair less (ditto), or even hide unwanted roots, a headscarf is always a good idea. Not only is it hella-cute but if you use a silk bandana or silk scarf, it’ll reduce prevent frizz. What’s not to love?

7. Claw Clip

A claw clip is another influencer fave that is also perfect for WFH OOTDs. We’re currently obsessed with the Bunch of Scrunch The OG Claw, $15.

8. Snatched Bun

Running late for a Zoom call? Snatch your hair into a tight bun for a sleek, bold look. Just make sure it’s snatched – you don’t want to look like you just rolled out of bed. Tame flyaways with hairspray or gel, and don’t forget to polish the back of your hair too, otherwise, flyaways are a total giveaway.

9. Headband Wig

According to celebrity hairstylist, Sabrina Porsche, who works with the likes of Beyonce and J.Lo, headband wigs are going to be huge this year. If you haven’t seen this wig style just yet, Sabrina explains, “They’re half wigs that come with headbands attached to them, for those days when you’re between styles and need a quick go-to that’s cute, quick, and easy!”
