Hey, there's no shame in being lazy. Sometimes, living in this crazy busy world, gaining a few extra minutes of sleep far outweighs a perfectly prim and proper look. What started as the no-makeup makeup trend quickly veered into the realm of hair, reminding us once again that less can really be more. In the case of hair, this means less heat styling, less coiffing and less products can lead to a more nonchalant, flirtatious end look. Now, while many messy styles (we're looking at you, blogger-level messy buns) look super simple but actually require a bit of skill, we thought it was about time to equip you with an arsenal of easy-to-create hairstyles that will work for everything from your office desk to drinks.

 

Ready to roll out of bed late and still look good doing it? Here's everything you need to know to get maximum, on-trend impact with minimal effort.

 

The "I Woke Up Like This" Undone Braid

You know how every once in a while you shower at night so that you can sleep longer in the morning? Well, what if after that shower you styled your hair too? While you might think there's no point since it will look messy come morning, take pleasure in the fact that messy, undone 'dos are all the rage these days. That said, after showering and letting your hair air-dry, weave it into a relatively tight French braid down the back of your head. By the time you finally pull yourself out of bed in the morning, your braid will look just ruffled enough to look effortlessly chic.

 

The "I Can't Decide Whether to Leave My Hair Down" Half-Up Top Knot

You're not the only one who has trouble making basic decisions in the wee hours of the morning. Instead of agonizing over pulling your hair up or leaving it down, simply opt for a hairstyle that offers the best of both worlds: the half-up top knot. To really liven up this lazy girl look, spritz your hair with dry shampoo or texture spray before looping and tying your bun into place. Don't worry about flyaways, this is definitely a hairstyle where the messier the better.

 

The "Maybe I Did Yoga This Morning or Maybe I Over-Slept" Messy Low Octopus Bun

The latest style to go from runway to street-ready is the octopus bun that's been seen everywhere from Milan to New York. Part your hair down the middle and smooth some serum from your hairline back to the nape of your neck to tame any flyaways along the way. From there, take all your freshly-smoothed, gathered strands and fold them in half before tying them off into the super simple hairstyle that's sure to become a staple for your lazy girl style.

 

Three simple, must-try lazy girl looks means it's officially acceptable to press snooze as much as you want. Now the only question is, which will become your go-to?
