We’ve all experienced it – the shock and horror after sleeping through your alarm, only to discover you’ve got far less time than you require to get ready for work. Then, lo and behold, your hair’s a mess, and you don’t have time to straighten it, use product, or even put much effort into it at all. If your line of work requires you to be presentable but there’s just not enough time, why not consider a no-fuss hairstyle that works?
While it takes just a few minutes, you’re sure to find any of these hairstyles below can be a new favourite for your morning regime – whether you’re running late for work or not.
The messy bun is easily one of the best hairstyles ever created. There are many different ways to style a messy bun, but it takes just a few minutes to master. A messy bun is perfect for when you just don’t have time to have those frizzy ends behaving as they should. Just create a ponytail then twist your hair around into a bun form and fasten a hair tie over the top. It might not be anything special, but it’s a hairstyle that looks both smart and presentable.
Brush It Up
If time is of the essence and there’s no time to waste, grab your brush and get brushing! A Brush It Up style involves brushing your hair to remove all the tangles, then sweeping it upwards from the bottom to form a high ponytail. Once you’ve fastened that with a hair tie, put on a basic headband that sits a little back from your hairline. You’ll find you’re looking tidy and presentable in no time.
Half Up Half Down
If you want to try something different, that doesn’t take a lot of time that you don’t have, consider the half up half down look. Sweep half of your hair up into a ponytail and fasten it, then let the remaining hair hang loosely underneath. Complete the look by brushing the hair underneath so it sits tidily.
Putting your hair into a single twist can hide all manner of hair problems. Whether your hair is greasy, knotty, or just generally looks unkempt, you can’t go wrong with a braid. Brush your hair, tie it up, separate it into three sections, then braid it. It looks professional, beautiful, and is exceptionally easy to do. What’s more, it hides signs of gritty, greasy hair you haven’t gotten around to cleaning yet.
The ponytail is almost everyone’s go-to hairstyle when they’re running late, and you’re guaranteed to be able to make it look good every time. However, you can change it up a bit by letting the hair go over your ears opposed to under it, and set the ponytail low on your back opposed to high up.
If you’ve got just enough time to wash and partially dry your hair, then consider adding some waves to your hair. Take parts of your damp hair, twisting them, then blow them with a hairdryer. Separate the hair gently and run your fingers through it for a carefree yet controlled wavy do.
Even if you think your hair is untamable and there’s just not enough time, there’s always something that can be done. Consider any of these five easy no-fuss hairstyles and head out of the door on time.
