Quick Hairstyles that Are Perfect for Traveling

Hairstyles might be the last thing on our mind when we’ve got a flight to catch. We’re worried about boarding passes, making sure we’re there on time, how much does our luggage weigh, security, etc. Traveling is exciting but it’s also stressful, and we don’t have to worry about our hair.

But it doesn’t hurt to have a cute outfit and hairstyle picked out. Especially when we’re meeting someone upon arrival or have to immediately be somewhere. When you’re traveling your hairstyles need to be: quick & easy, comfortable, nap-friendly, long-lasting & cute! Here are a few hairstyles that are perfect for your upcoming flights.

Low Half-Up Bun for the Plane

Positioning a bun at the nape of your neck will allow you to rest your head on air plane seats and waiting area chairs. This way you don’t have a bun making it difficult to rest but also it won’t get smashed. It’s also so quick and easy, you can always restyle during a quick restroom break.

Half-Up Simple Braid

If you want something a little less casual, but still easy then trick people into thinking you put time into your look with a braid. Pull half your hair back and braid it in a 3-strand or fishtail braid. This look is both secure and practical for traveling and you can further secure your braid with a hair accessory.


Perfect for shorter or longer hair

Low Ponytail with Clasp

Sometimes all you need to do is add a statement hair accessory for a perfect hairstyle. A low ponytail is obviously easy, stylish and perfect for travel. But we want to look good for our travel photos. Add a gold clasp or other accessories to your low ponytail for a softer, more stylish travel hairstyle.

Bandana for Traveling

A great way to keep your hair out of your face, tied back and looking stylish is with a headband. We love this look because you play with your hair texture, different prints on the scarf and you can use this hair accessory throughout your travel. Easy, cute and comfortable!

The trick to traveling with cute hairstyles is to keep it easy. This way you can restyle your hair if you need too. We also recommend that you pack some dry-shampoo and extra bobby-pins to keep your updo’s in place and your texture fresh after long (and often sweaty) traveling. Bon Voyage!
