5 Hairstyles You Can Do In Under A Minute

modedeville

 

We’ve all woken up so late that we have literally 5 minutes to get ready before we need to hurry out the door, and hair normally comes last on the list. Sure you might manage to brush and spritz in some dry shampoo, but other than that our hair normally gets a bit neglected on busy mornings.

So we’ve gathered our favorite tried-and-tested quick hairstyles that take no longer than a minute, and if you don’t have a minute to spare, you really did oversleep!

1. The thick ponytail

This is a great trick for those with thinner hair, and it’s so quick and easy to achieve!  Tie up the top half of your hair in a high ponytail, and the bottom half of your hair in a ponytail directly below the first.

Backcomb the top ponytail so it completely covers the bottom, et voila, beautiful, thick, lustrous hair, and you’re ready to walk/run out of the door!

 

2. Half up half down

This is a great style, no matter the length of your hair (ok, it won’t work on really short hair), and is so quick and stylish you’ll be at that important meeting in no time! Simply gather together the top part of your hair, down to your ears and tie in a bun at the back. If you have more time you can experiment with braids for some really gorgeous morning hairstyles!

 

3. The braided pony

This hairstyle is so pretty, it looks like it might have taken ages, but it’s actually really quick and easy to do. Simply gather three strands of hair just above the ear and braid, making sure it goes smoothly along your head, and tie at the bottom for now. Then gather all of your hair, braid included, into a ponytail, take out the band and pull the braid apart to make it thicker. Done, a gorgeous speedy hairstyle.

 

4. Try a barrette

A great way to make a half-up ponytail more exciting is to secure it using a pretty barrette, try one that contrasts with your hair color to make it really stand out. Metallic colors look great in darker hair and bold colors look amazing in blonde and red hair. Barrettes are also great to sweep aside hair away if you’re growing out a fringe!

 

5. The low bun

This is great for long hair and there are so many quick and easy variations you’ll never get bored. Tie your hair in a low ponytail at the nape of your neck and then twist the pony around itself, securing with bobby pins. If you have a little more time why not try braiding the low ponytail and securing at the bottom before you twist it up, it makes a gorgeous, romantic looking up-do, in less than a minute. Definitely one to master for hectic mornings!

  • Oooh thanks so much for the hairstyle ideas! I always feel like such a slob not styling my hair for work, but I just don’t have the time to make it all pretty. These, however, are perfect!

  • They all have the same hair type though. Not everyone has straight hair.
