    Default Hairstyles for Lounging Around

    I usually leave my hair down in the evenings and sometimes during lazy mornings if my sleep style has fallen out. This hasnít been an issue thus far, but when my hair is down now it brushes against the surfaces of whatever sink Iím using when washing my hands, which isnít ideal. So Iím wondering what other folks do with their hair when at home just chilling??

    Do you keep the same style you wore all day? Or do you have a style for times when you want something to contain your hair a little but still let your follicles be in a position of no stress? Do you just keep a clip/stick on your person at all times?

    Secondary question: how long were you when you needed to do this vs. just leaving it down?

    I usually use a claw clip half-up (or... 2/3 up) during these times of the day. It keeps the mass squarely behind my shoulders and doesn't tend to get into the sink/etc etc.

    I keep my hair bunned until bedtime and always have, since I don't want hair in my face. I would think claw clipping it out of the way would provide your no-stress solution and should work until you start to sit on it. Or you might loosely French braid it and tie the end off with ribbon. That would be pretty no-stress.

    My daily style is a braid or two, because they're comfortable (buns and other "up" styles will eventually give me a headache). Hence, this is also my at-home style.

    As soon as my hair was long enough to pull back, it was pulled back most of the time. I hate having it flopping in my way, getting caught in things, etc. It's very rare that I wear my hair loose; I don't want to have to worry about it.
    Putting it in my signature because I have to say it so often:
    Do what works for your hair, not what other people say is "right" or "wrong." If it works for you, it's not wrong. If it doesn't work for you, it's not right.

    Just wanted to add - while I usually keep my hair up however it was during the day til time for bed (itís usually the morning when Iím claw clipping), I have also been known to switch to Feralís scrunchie cinnabun since Iím trying to get into the habit of sleeping with it up instead of tossed over my pillow.

    I gravitate toward cinnabuns for its ease, high up on my crown when it can reach there.

    I find buns very comfortable so I usually wear them when home lounging around. I like to put my bun higher than usual at those times so that it doesn't interfere with putting my head back on my chair. I save wearing the higher buns for when I'm home because high buns expose more frizz.

    I usually just keep my hair up in the same LWB from the day. Maybe I’ll take it down or put it in a braid instead.

    The only thing I do for lounging around is either keeping it down or up in a top knot, very top of my head. I can't do low buns because I sit down a lot and so it would always get in the way

    Very high cinnamon bun with claw clips - usually the only thing I can get to hold comfily that doesn't interfere with chair backs

    At just past BSL I still leave it down a fair bit, but the need to put it up started a few inches ago, when it started getting caught in things/dropping in my way
