It’s that time of the year again—and by that we mean it giving your hair a makeover! If your trips to the salon are scarce, and instead, you choose to go only a few times a year for your big snip, you might be thinking you’d rather go for a drastic hairstyle change to make each appointment worth it. But what if we told you that a simple cut (and subsequent subtle dye job) might work better if you’re a low-maintenance kind of gal?
For example, getting trendy short haircuts like a pixie or a mullet tends to grow out awkwardly especially if you’re too lazy to style your hair every day. It’s because these cuts are dimensional and need quite the upkeep to maintain their desired shape or silhouette. Pinays who have naturally straight hair can go for a hairstyle that looks Pinterest-perfect in terms of volume and waves don’t naturally happen unless you’ve got the right tools.
So, what’s a lazy girl to do? Don’t fret ‘cause we’ve rounded up the cutest haircuts perfect for straight hair! Most of these styles also look flattering on a variety of face shapes so you don’t need to ask the time-old question, “Bagay ba to sa'kin?” We’re sure you’d be booking a trip to the salon after scrolling.
