1. The Messy Bun
For a good reason, the messy bun is a timeless style—it’s easy to wear and can be dressed up or down, depending on the situation. You can create this look by gathering your hair in a high or low ponytail, twisting it around itself, and keeping it in place using a hair elastic. To make your bun more textured and voluminous, pull out a few hair strands around your face or in your nape.
2. The Quick Braid
Braids are a great alternative that can save you a lot of time, giving your look some sophistication and class. Whichever way, it is up to you whether you want a classic three-stranded braid, a fishtail braid, or a French braid. Try a simple side braid for speed, or create a loose, messy boho-chic braid.
3. The Not-So-Average Ponytail
Add a little twist to your everyday ponytail for an instant makeover. Gather you’re hair into a high ponytail and secure it with an elegant elastic band for a sleek look. To get a more casual look, pull it into a low ponytail and wrap a strand or two of hair around the elastic to hide it. Be creative; twist or braid the ponytail.
4. The Classic Headband Hack
A new hairstyle can be created in seconds by simply wearing a headband, adding that extra style, and keeping your hair away from your eyes. For a quick and effortless style, just place a headband over your head and arrange your hair into a ponytail or bun. Try varied headband types such as padded headbands, decorated headbands, or knotted headbands for a more refined appearance.
5. The Speedy Scarf Updo
Add a scarf updo to a casual dress. As simple as that, just wrap a scarf around your head, leaving a knot on the nape of your neck. Put your hair in a ponytail or a bun before you put on the scarf, and you are good to go. Furthermore, you can also try out different methods of scarf tying, e.g., a top knot or a side knot, for additional flexibility.
Remember, the key to quick and easy hairstyles is to keep it simple and don’t strive for perfection. Embrace a natural, textured look and let your hair’s natural beauty shine through.
