Zoom meetings are currently the new “normal.” But with many of us working at home during the coronavirus crisis, we tend to lose interest in styling our hair for video calls.

You don't have to spend hours trying to make your locks look super fancy. There are easy Zoom hairstyles that you can do in under five minutes. So, Yahoo Life tapped celebrity hairstylist Nikki Nelms to show us exactly how using Goody products, including sustainable and natural hair accessories made of plant-based and earth-friendly materials, so you can do good while looking good.

Nikki is the genius behind memorable hair looks worn by A-list stars, including Janelle Monáe, Solange, Zoë Kravitz and Yara Shahidi. She also recently launched an IG TV series called “Walk-In Wednesday,” where she imparts valuable hair tips and chats with celebrity guests.

Grab your comb, brush, a headband and some Scrunchies and follow the video above. Then, read below for a step-by-step tutorial on creating these Zoom hairstyles.

Zoom Hairstyle #1: All Goody Headband Ponytail

As Nikki says, "This is a way to match your outfit, or look like you put a little more effort into it."

Step 1: Before pulling hair back, separate three small sections from the front, left and right sides of your hair that are about 1 and 1/2 inches apart. You should have three “straps” of hair hanging.

Step 2: Take the remainder length and pull it back into a “snatched” ponytail using Goody Ouchless Forever Elastic Hair Ties. Smooth with a detangler brush like the Goody Total Texture Intelliwave (only available in stores).

Step 3: Grab a Goody Ouchless Headband and place it at the crown of your head. Next, take one of the three separate sections and wrap it around your ponytail and secure it with a Goody Bobby Pin. Repeat this with the remaining two sections until you’ve created a basketweave pattern.

Zoom Hairstyle #2: Stacked Scrunchies Ponytail

Who would have guessed that not 1, not 2, but 3 stacked Scrunchies would look so good?

Step 1: To achieve this playful hairstyle, you start out by gathering your locks into a medium-high ponytail using the Goody Total Texture Intelliwave. Nikki says, "I intentionally go up a little higher just because I would want to see it.”

Step 2: Next, grab three different colored Scrunchies. Nikki’s pick are the Goody Ouchless Scrunchies in Neon Lights that work to punch up your style. Loop the Scrunchies around the ponytail. "We are just going to slide them on there and sit them… we just position them so each color gets its own shine," explains Nikki.

Step 3: Take your brush and do a little back-brushing of the ponytail to enhance volume at the base.

Step 4: Finger-roll the end of the pony into the stacked Scrunchies and secure with Goody Bobby Pins Black Hair Pins.

Okay, my friends. You are now ready to look fabulous on your next video call with these easy Zoom hairstyles.
