Four Heatless Hairstyles to Wear at Home

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at DePauw chapter.

Even though everyone’s staying home right now, it’s still fun to do your hair for any Facetime calls or Zoom meetings you may have. While you still want to look good during self-isolation, it’s hard to justify using heat on your hair to be lazy and watch movies all day. Here are four hairstyles that will keep your hair looking great without adding heat. 


If you woke up and your hair just isn’t sitting how you’d like it to, just throw it in a braid or two. Braids are a super cute and easy hairstyle to rock during quarantine. Either put your hair into one big braid in the back of your head or split your hair into two sections and give yourself some pigtail braids! Another cute variation of a braid is putting the top of your hair into two French braids and tying them off halfway down your head. 

Robe Wave

If you’re like me and have been spending all of your extra time at home on Tik Tok, you’ve most likely seen this hair hack. To get loose, beachy waves without heat, take the belt off of a robe and place it across the top of your head. Then use the belt as if it was a piece of your hair and put your hair into two braids on both sides of your head. Sleep with this in and you’ll wake up with beachy curls the next morning!

Braided Waves

My personal favorite heatless hairstyle is getting beachy waves with a braid. Like the robe waves, to achieve this look you need to braid your hair and sleep with it in overnight. To get bigger waves, I recommend doing one French braid in the back of your head. And to get tighter waves, I would do two French braids on the sides of your head. 

Low Bun

This last heatless hairstyle is the easiest of all four. If you’re really not in the mood to do anything special with your hair, just throw it in a low bun. Grab a scrunchie and tie a loose messy bun at the nape of your neck. This look will take you literally five seconds to complete, and it’s an easy way to look put together even if you’re not.
