I am going to go out on a limb here and say that hair is an intimidating thing for some women. We want it to be cute, we want it to be practical, and we want it to be done fast. Because I don’t know about you, but I usually don’t have an hour to spend in the bathroom getting ready.
So today I wanted to share with you 5 hairstyles that can be done in less than 5 minutes. You’re welcome. 🙂
Everyone loves them and it’s clear why! They’re messy and that’s okay. They’re quick and still cute. They’re really perfect if you ask me. I rock these a lot during the summer months. You cans see a tutorial for a top knot for short hair here and a lot of other top knot ideas here.
Half up Criss-cross
This is just a regular half up style with a little pizzazz. It looks more intricate than it actually is and can easily be done in under 5 minutes. All you need is a teaser comb and some bobby pins and you’re good to go! Check out the tutorial for long hair here and see it done on both long and short here.
Love this one! You guys, seriously, it’s a side braid that you twist into a bun. Voila! And yet it looks like something a stylist would put together! Fool all your friend into thinking you’re some kind of hair guru with this one. You can check out the tutorial here.
Half-up Dutch Braid
A Dutch braid is a basic French braid but done ‘inside out’ if that makes sense. Instead of going over you go under. Something as simple as that changes up the braid in this style and it’s so cute. Just pin the braid in the back with some hair from the other side and you’re done. Yep, that simple! You can see the full tutorial here or for short hair here.
Low Braided Bun
This one is perfect for dirty hair. And I don’t know about you, but I try to let my hair go 2 maybe 3 (and if I’m honest, sometimes 4!) days without washing it. It’s healthier for your hair all you have to do is get creative with it. You tease at the crown all the way to the base. Braid the center hair into a big braid leaving two side pieces out. Braid the side pieces, wrap them around, secure with pins and you’re done. Add a headband for cute, practical, easy hair! You can see the full tutorial here.
Don’t be intimidated! Chignon is just a fancy word for a bun. And really, that’s all this style is. Separate the front two sections out, tease from the crown to the base and secure the back into a bun. Then, one at a time, wrap the front hair around the bun, smoothing it out so it all goes together. That’s it. Here’s the full tutorial.
You guys, so simple. Put a headband over your head, tuck all your hair into the headband at the back and that’s it! You can see the full tutorial here.
