In my experience, finding a new hairstyle that you love is difficult. You spot cool Pinterest hairstyles and you instantly think, “I can try that!” only to discover the the hair color doesn’t compliment your skin tone, or worse, you’ve spent top dollar on a haircut you can’t undo. To make your hunt for dream hair a bit easier, we compiled the most popular Pinterest hairstyles that are actually pretty cute and easy to DIY. Take a look.
Braided Double Buns
The classic bun has been around since the beginning of time, but every now and then we love to see celebrities give it a new spin. Take this year’s Golden Globes for instance—the buns were pinned, braided, messy and simply pulled back. We also spotted a braided double bun on Pinterest that might be one of the boldest (and most fun) looks we’ve seen. Bonus: From the looks of things, it can double as a workout style. And, what’s better than that?
The Waterfall Effect
You’ve seen waterfall braids all over Pinterest and Instagram, but have you seen the waterfall style without braids? We can’t stop staring. And surprisingly, this cool-girl hairstyle is supereasy to pull off. The only thing you’ll need? Small elastic bands and a steady hand.
Rose Gold Hair
Here’s the deal: Of course rose gold is nothing new (the jewelry industry has a long history with the hue) but rosy-tinted hair is a trend we adore. And if you’re over denim and unicorn hair (no judgement if you are!), the pinky-metallic hue is a pretty alternative.
The Messy Braided Updo
A braided updo is so 2007, but a messy braided updo is a look we can get behind. This aahmazing style is great for work, weddings, date night, and even that tropical vacation you’ve been dying to get to. We also love it because the messier it is (day two hair lovers rejoice!), the better it looks.
Blonde and Cinnamon Balayage
Balayage—the highlighting process in which a colorist hand-paints color through small sections of hair—is taking over the internet and for good reason. It’s an easy way to upgrade your look without doing a major hair transformation. Most think balayage is only for blondes, but this blonde and cinnamon mashup proves it works well on darker colors too.
