7 Easy And Practical Travel Hairstyles

When you’re off on adventures, and suffering from severe jet lag, the last thing you want is hair looking how you feel. Frazzled, damaged hair is not what you want when you’re stepping out of the plane. You want it to look fresh, stylish and polished for your arrival, and beyond!

You don’t have to jump in the shower and restyle as soon as you get off the plane – after all, don’t you just want to touch base at the hotel and then get exploring? Don’t lose any more time, and opt for travel-friendly hairstyles that will still look stunning even after a long flight!

You don’t have to compromise your own style, there are plenty of carefree hairstyles that reflect your own personal vibe.

Beautiful Braids

Braids are the perfect option for keeping your hair out of your face all whilst looking feminine and preppy. On the plane, you can rock the braids and upon arrival, you can let the braid loose for beach-ready waves. You can even go for braided pigtails for a playful approach to the look!

The Messy Bun

The messy bun is the go-to hairstyle for long flights and tiring trips! Just tie your hair into a ponytail and wrap the ponytail around itself to get the perfect messy bun. Secure with a hair tie and if necessary, a few bobby pins. We can see this hairstyle with your comfiest plane outfit and a good book to pass the time!

High Ponytail

The fail-safe option is the high ponytail, why high? It’s the most comfortable and don’t dig into the back of your head for those naps on the plane. Add texturizing spray to keep that pony high and lock down that oomph! You’ll be ready for beach photos on arrival!

Low Pigtails

Another fun travel-friendly hairstyle is low pigtails. Your hair will be under control and looking cute! You can even braid them to release beautiful beach waves once you get to your destination. See it as prep for your holiday-ready hair! Who said it had to be difficult?

Half Up Half Down

If you want to show off your luscious locks but still keep your hair out of the way, the half up half down look will be your go-to hairstyle. It is edgy yet playful and keeps things interesting even when you’re adventuring around exotic destinations. We recommend curling the ends for a bohemian touch.


Play with your accessories and wrap your hair in a headscarf. Use it as a headband or wrap the scarf around your ponytail. As well as keeping your hair out the way, it is a trend pièce that you will love to wear at the pool or for sightseeing beautiful cities.


Last but not least, hide sweaty hair and protect it from the sun’s rays with a straw hat for sunny locations or with a baker boy cap for edgy winter vibes. No matter what your personal style is, there is always a hat to suit it. We think tousled curls will look awesome poking out of your hat of choice – don’t you?
