Farming leaves many of us with just a small chunk of time in the morning to get ready. While it’d be lovely to get dolled up every day, the fact is that a flawless appearance is likely to melt off by afternoon anyway. For those of us who like to feel put-together even if we’re not going anywhere fancy, wrapping your hair is a great solution.

Many curly girls like to adorn their head with colorful wraps to protect their hair from the elements. However, head wraps are used in practically all cultural traditions. Different types of coverings can be useful for all hair types, from straight to wavy to Afro hair. They’re ideal for a lot of different times, such as:

  • When you’re having a bad hair day.
  • When you’re going to be sweating buckets by 10AM and need your hair to be anywhere-but-in-your-face.
  • When you want to protect your air from intense sunlight, dry air or humidity.

Of course, a farm girl may find herself in any of these situations depending on the day. If you’re not able to just throw your hair into a ponytail and call it a day, head wraps may be the saving grace you were looking for.

Here are some tips to make this hair protection technique work for you, no matter your hair texture.

Choose a scarf or wrap that you adore

While it’s easy to get caught up in cool wrapping techniques, the fact is that the color and texture of your fabric is what matters most. It’s what catches the eye first, after all. Of course, farmers have to work in all sorts of conditions, so you shouldn’t bother wearing a rare or expensive scarf on your head out in the fields.

With that said, knowing that you have a beautiful textile on your head can do wonders for your mood and confidence.

Use a simple wrapping pattern

Those elaborate wraps you see on Instagram are lovely and all, but for farm girl purposes, the point of this hairstyle is to be low-maintenance. Save the complicated wraps for a date night, and focus on nailing a simple look that you can do when you’re half-awake.

Need a place to start? This technique can be used with any square or rectangular scarf and is super quick.

Practice it at night

It seems like it’s always when we’re short on time that we decide to attempt something daunting that we’ve never done before, like a long winged cat-eye or a foot-high head wrap. Don’t get caught in this trap!

Practice wrapping your hair before you need to get ready in the morning. Soon, it’ll take you just a few seconds.

Tame your hair underneath

Half of the battle of tying head wraps is getting your hair into the right shape underneath. There are a few ways of doing this depending on your hair length, texture, and how much hair you want to leave out.

One common method is to twist your hair until it lays as flat against your head as possible. You’ll need a few bobby pins to make this work.

Another method is to wear a high top bun. You can cover it with the wrap or leave it exposed.

Remember that there’s no single method of tying a head wrap, so play around with it until you find a look that works for you. It’ll make your days on the farm much brighter while saving you time and protecting your hair.

Creating Shapely Legs

With the trend toward leggings and skin-tight jeans, having shapely legs is even more critical than ever. Getting your legs in shape is a task that requires more than one strategy, particularly if you haven’t made an effort before now. For the best results, you should use as many of the following tips as you can to tone and beautify your legs.

Eat Well

One essential component of encouraging your legs to look their best is to eat nutritious food filled with vitamins and minerals. Not only does this strategy provide your legs with the nutrition they need to look healthy, but it also helps to keep your legs thin and shapely.

Hydrate

Unless you hydrate your body adequately each day, your skin can suffer the kind of damage that leads you to creases, wrinkles, and discoloration. While some of these skin issues are going to develop anyway as you age, hydrating can help to slow down this process.

Moisturize

Keeping your legs feeling soft and looking smooth could be as simple as using specialized beauty products designed to help your skin retain moisture. Leg creams, lotions, gels, and butters offer rich moisturizing ingredients that enhance the natural beauty of your skin. Using one of these products once a day can make all of the difference between rough, scaly legs and smooth, attractive ones.

Protect

Whether or not you are a sun worshiper, you should use a protective lotion or cream that safeguards your skin against the harshness of the sun’s rays. Not only does this strategy help to prevent unwanted wrinkles and early aging, but it can also protect you against skin cancer. In addition to sunscreen lotions and creams, you can use cosmetics, soaps, and lotions offering protection against the sun’s rays.

Exercise

If your legs look somewhat thicker than you would like, you might want to incorporate toning exercises into your routine. For the best results, you should include split squats, chair squats, leg lifts, and lunges.

If you want beautiful legs, it is up to you to do something about it. Take the time to create a beauty routine that you can follow on a daily basis to promote healthier, softer, slimmer looking legs. If you want to achieve exceptional results, you should approach this task from all angles, including nutrition, exercise, and skin care.
