It's no secret that Scandi girls know a thing or two about how to be cool. Their penchant for colour and laid-back aesthetic makes for one hell of a chic recipe. Everything from their clothes to their skincare oozes effortless style. and I want in. In fact, I've been scribbling notes on how to replicate Scandi-girl style for years, but it seems as though things are easier observed than done. When it comes to nailing Scandi fashion, I have to admit defeat.
What I have learned, however, is that a key part of any Scandi-girl look is a no-fuss, low-maintenance hairstyle—the kind that looks like you just sort of chucked it up and it just fell that way. And while I'm all too aware that effortless-looking hairstyles are some of the most difficult to execute, it seems that Scandi girls have struck the perfect balance between chicness and ease. And I've finally cracked it. While my sartorial skills are lacking, I've got the Scandi-girl hair look down to a fine art, and it's changed my life. Forget spending hours with curling tongs. Nowadays, I wake up, twist up my lengths, and I'm good to go in a matter of seconds. My current hair looks are so good (if I may say so myself) that I think everyone has something to learn from the Scandi way.
So whether you consider yourself a lazy girl when it comes to hair or simply find yourself stretched for time on the daily, keep scrolling for the seven Scandi-girl hairstyles that will change the game. (And I promise they won't take any longer than five minutes.)
If you have mid-length hair, a claw clip couldn't be easier to use. Part hair in the middle, use the clip to scrap it back and secure it at the nape of the neck. Pull some strands out at the front for a super laid-back look.
The ponytail plait is a Scandi-girl classic, and for good reason. Just pull your hair back into a ponytail, secure with a band, plait the lengths and secure again for a pretty update on the classic pony.
Plaited ponytails look particularly great with balayage as they showcase the ribbons of blonde through the lengths.
Similar to the ponytail plait but so very different, the bubble braid hit the big time this year thanks to Scandi-girl love for the style. For a minimalistic approach, wear your bubble braid low at the nape of the neck.
