I’ve been binging Sex And The City for the past few months and it has changed my life. Not only has it made me feel more confident in life but it’s been changing the way I look. When I go to pick out an outfit or style my hair in the morning, I channel my four best friends Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha. One of my favorite things to do lately is to try out some fun hairstyles inspired by the show, especially by Carrie. Here are some of my favorite SATC inspired hairstyles.
Braid in the Front
This is the hairstyle that has a hold on me. I can’t stop braiding my hair in the front now! I’m literally obsessed with and I’ve done it like eighteen times since I saw this episode. The waves, the braid, her simple and chic makeup, it’s such an amazing look. I saw this episode and knew that I wanted to look like her in this scene. I’m actually incredibly horrible at doing hair, so this is a super simple and easy way to add a little spice to a boring hair day. Throw in a little braid and boom! I’m as stylish as Carrie Bradshaw.
Curls For Days
Obviously, I wouldn’t be able to write this article without talking about Carrie’s classic curls. Even now, these curls are coveted, respected and adored. In today’s day and age, with “the curly girl method” and leave-in conditioner at our fingertips, these curls are easy to recreate. What I love about Carrie’s curls the most is that they’re not perfect – sometimes they’re frizzy, not perfectly bouncy and they’re all over the place. This is attainable, realistic and amazing!
Samantha’s Iconic Bob/Bangs
Samantha’s bob and bangs are one of my favorite looks on the whole show. She looks absolutely incredible with this haircut and I need to see someone recreate it. I, however, don’t want to myself but I need to see a TikTok girl pull this off. It’s iconic, chic and spectacular.
Bandana & Sunnies
The bandana look has been back for a while now. I can’t stop tying bandanas in my hair, because it’s so cute and easy. But, a pairing I love even more is placing some cute and tiny sunglasses on top of your bandana. Think dainty, think the early 2000s, think colored lenses. Carrie did this a few times in the show and I love the way it looked. This is a pairing I will definitely be recreating this summer.
Charlotte’s Bucket Hat
And just like that… bucket hats are absolutely back in. Charlotte rocked one when the show was originally airing, but now I’m seeing them everywhere again. Honestly, this one is another staple of summer and I can’t wait to throw a bucket hat and jean jacket on like Charlotte had in this episode. While this isn’t necessarily a hairstyle, it’s perfect for those days in which you don’t want to even mess with your hair.
Carrie’s Gigantic Bun
Sometimes, Carrie rocks this absolutely gigantic bun on top of her head that I’m absolutely obsessed with. I don’t know if this was ever a trend, but it should be. I’m not just talking about a casual messy bun. I mean a GIANT bun. Sometimes Carrie’s bun is the size of her whole head and I’m digging it. Honestly, sometimes it feels easier to make a huge bun than a tight dainty bun. I love the chaos this bun brings.
