Clothes are an easy way to carry a specific style but I forget non-clothing style cues exist. I believe you can dress the world in a standard issue black t-shirt and jeans and you would still be able to tell each person's style by the choice of their shoes and how they wear their hair.
That said, I'm also really lazy about hair. I get annoyed with hair in my face and never quite mastered the sock bun as the panacea combo of style + hair out of your face. (Also: shamepuff.) I am not into hair products and the most I'll usually use is a serum or conditioning texturizer. (I understand I just sounded like a Valley Girl but I speak the truth and I'm sorry that stuff comes with weird Valley Girl nomenclature.)
Still, I have been chiding myself to figure out a few hairstyles even I can do - ones that actually look like something. So I made myself stand in front of the mirror to come up with a hairstyle that is vaguely beehive-y and so easy I can execute it in under 5 minutes.
And I was planning on telling you how it's done but then - lucky, lazy me - I ran into a tutorial that is exactly what I do, right down to the type of hairspray except that I throw my hair in a clip vs putting it in a pony. Uncanny. And so helpful. (If I need a 5-minute hairstyle in my life, imagine the resolve I'd need to write a tutorial for you.)
I left the house in an American Apparel t-shirt, a pair of skinny jeans, Good Guys on my feet and I felt sufficiently presentable.
A can of hairspray that lasts me months if not a year is likely less impact on the earth than new clothes I'd buy out of style monotony, right? Is hair product a better trade-off for catering to our quest for novelty than clothes?
