You’ve put effort in all week. Now it’s a long weekend and you’ve got three gorgeously lazy days ahead of you. Why spend any more time indoors working on your hair than you have to? Below, five celeb-inspired styles that will take you less than a minute to toss together but still deliver maximum “flirting by the cooler” impact.

Clockwise from top left: Take inspiration from from Hannah Davis’s pretty pony by working a smoothing and polishing product (like this Living Proof one) through damp hair, slicking it back and wrapping a piece around the base of the pony. Air dry and embrace the sporty vibe.
Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s half-back hairstyle works for any length or texture — just tease the crown a bit for some sex appeal and then pull out a few pieces in front to look less “done.” Oribe’s dry texturizing spray should give you what you need.
Bella Thorne’s one-sided braid adds a little interest to glossy curls, but it could also help tame some beach-dried waves if you’re going from beach straight to drinks. Work a little leave-in conditioner (like this Healthy Sexy Hair product) right out of the surf to keep hair manageable into the next day.
Want a big, full topknot like Amber Heard’s? Twist and pin the front section into a pompadour, twist your hair into a messy bun, then spray a bit and pull out the pins. (If you’re feeling ambitious you can do a pony, then tie up individual knots as she did. We don’t recommend ambition, though.) style goes especially well with jean shorts and sandals.
Finally, if you really want to put no effort in, grab your favorite hat and put it on top of a low pony like Chrissy Teigen’s. Everyone will tell you how cute you look, but only you will know how basic it was. (This style is similar to Chrissy’s and only $30!)
