With our busy schedules, we want every last ounce of sleep we can get. And you can, with these five super quick hairstyles. It’s the best of both worlds. You can be well-rested and totally put together. Life can’t be this easy, can it? These 5 chic and super quick five-minute hairstyles are definitely for you, and they are as gorgeous as they are easy.
Front Row Braids
Front Row Braids are a quick and easy way to keep your hair out of your face while also looking chic. Start with a part, in which spot you desire, and make a rectangle section on one side of your hair. Grab three small sections close to the part line and begin a dutch braid close to the front of your hair, incorporating outside strands as you go along. Braid all the way down and repeat on the other side and secure the braids with a rubber band. There you have it!
Half-Up Half-Down Twist
This half up half down twist is simple and super quick. Start with loose waves in your hair – either natural, curled, or heatless waves. Begin to backcomb your hair at the crown for volume. Next, smooth out the top layer of hair over the section that was backcombed. Now you have volume! Now, twist one side of your hair and pin it 2/3 of the way across your head. Repeat on the other side and tuck it under the first twist. Pin to secure and viola!
Messy French Twist
This messy french twist is definitely classy and chich without all of the hassle. First, start by prepping your hair with hair spray. Spray generously and quickly blow dry on the cold setting. Next, take your comb and teasing the crown section of your hair. Lightly tease to the sides and ends as well for added volume. With your fingers, lightly “comb” all the hair back like a mid pony. Follow through to the ends and start rolling the ends to the direction you want the twist in. You can choose which side is more flattering for you. Next, keep rolling until you reach the head (you can also “poof” out the crown a bit and loosen it up). Now that you have your desired shape, pin the twist to the rest of the hair. Secure it by applying more hair spray.
Teased Low Bun
It’s the perfect season for easy and elegant up-do’s. Here’s a simple style for a cute low bun, dress it up with a headband for added depth. Start by separating a few thick strands from the top of your head (where your part naturally ends) and tease them by brushing the hair up toward your head. Next, pull your hair down into a low ponytail and fluff up the teased part of your hair. Now that low pony has volume, use a hair tie to keep it in place. Separate your ponytail hair in half, and tease the upper half. Use the lower un-teased half and flip it over the top of your teased bun. Wrap hair around the base of your bun and secure it with a bobby pin. Style any loose strands as you desire.
Quick and Easy Loose Waves And Side Fish-Tail
It takes five minutes to achieve this simple loose waves and side fishtail do. Start with your hair down and a side part. With the side with more hair, take a large section and split it into two and being a fishtail all the way down. Use different size sections to create a chunky and full look. Tease the fishtail to your liking and secure with a clear elastic. Next, the waves are achieved with a hair straightener, so be sure to apply heat protectant. With the flat iron angle and twist 180 degrees away from your face and slide down for a subtle wave. This gives you loose and flowing waves. Brush through the waves with your fingers, scrunch and finish with a light spritz of hairspray.
