If you’re anything like me, you’re constantly on the go. When rushing out the door, having some quick go-to hairstyles is helpful. These eight hairstyles take less than five minutes, from bubble ponytails to chignon buns. Numerous websites recommend braided hairstyles as a time saver. If you aren’t too experienced with braiding, don’t worry, these hairstyles are simple and braid-free.
Are you tired of putting your hair up in the same ponytail every day? This hairstyle takes a childhood classic and turns it into an elegant look. This hairstyle is perfect for brunch with friends or working in the office.
This hairstyle is versatile and perfect for when you want to do something fun with your hair. The bubble pony works wonders if you’re looking to harness your thick hair or add volume to thin hair. It also works excellent with clean or greasy hair, making this a cute go-to look. Straightening the hair will give you a sleeker look if you have curly hair and a little extra time on your hands.
This style can be worn in a high pony or a low pony. For a high bubble pony, put your hair in a regular ponytail. Then complete steps 2-4. If you want this hairstyle to be extra fun, use colorful hairbands.
This hairstyle takes less than a minute and is a casual but classy look. I especially like this hairstyle when I don’t have time to wash my hair or when I’m indecisive about how to tackle my hair. You might want to have a few bobby pins nearby if you have thicker hair.
Whereas a bun is wrapped around itself, a chignon is hair tucked under or around an accessory. The prime characteristic of a chignon hairstyle is the placement, typically sitting at the nape of the neck. Its full name, “chignon de cou,” roughly translates to that placement. The beauty of this hairstyle is that it works for all textures of hair and the majority of hair lengths. As long as you can pull your hair back, you can rock a chignon. This hairstyle takes a bit longer but can be a quick formal hairstyle with practice. The chignon’s appeal is that it appears complex and elegant while still being easy to execute.
Deep breathes! I know this one seems overwhelming initially, but it builds upon hairstyles like the twisted ponytail. For beginners looking to try a semi-complex hairstyle while also being time-friendly, a chignon hairstyle is the way to go. Still confused? Below is a link for a chignon tutorial by Jamison Shaw Hairdressers; she does an excellent job explaining how to execute this hairstyle.
Are you looking for a fun hairstyle but don’t want to do a bubble ponytail? Space buns are another creative hairstyle that is easy to do. This hairstyle is perfect for a day of shopping or going on a coffee date. This hairstyle can be as messy as you want it to be; there isn’t one right way to do space buns. It can also be customized; space buns can be done in a half up half down hairstyle or full-on space buns.
For the half up- half down space buns, do all these steps except gather less hair. You can make your space buns as big or little as you want!
This cute hairstyle is perfect for when you want just to throw your hair up and go. Adding a bandana to a low messy bun can add fun pops of color to your outfit. It can also help on days when your hair is too greasy, and somehow you can’t find your dry shampoo in time. I like to put on the bandana first. However, you can put it in a messy bun before and add the bandana later.
This hairstyle is similar to the half up- half down hairstyle but has two pieces crisscrossing instead of one solid piece. This is a cute everyday look and takes less than a minute. You could customize this hairstyle by adding a pretty hair piece in the back.
1. Take two sections of hair from the front. Taking that piece, twist it and secure the hair in the middle with a bobby pin.
2. Repeat the same thing on the other hair section; secure this piece beneath the first section.
Like the look of the chignon but don’t have much time? The tuck-in can be done within minutes, leaving you looking put together all day. For this hairstyle, you can use any headband, and a bandana might even be possible.
