If you constantly wake up in a rush to get ready, these effortless hairstyles are perfect for you! These quick and easy hairstyles could help you look like you tried, but didn’t try too hard to look amazing.
1. Hair scarves
If you already haven’t participated in the trend, this simple addition of a hair scarf can change up your whole look! Most hair scarves you can get from local retailers are already sewed in with a hair-tie, making it a lot quicker to look put together when opting for a pony-tail or bun. Hair scarves are also the perfect summer accessory as it can come in many unique patterns and vibrant colors, great for matching with any cute outfit of your liking!
2. Space buns
This futuristic and playful hairstyle can be achieved in a matter of seconds. Simply part your hair down the middle to create two sections, and tie up each section in buns. To make it look as effortless as it is, you can mess around with the hair surrounding your face to drop random tendrils while also framing your face. You definitely don’t have to be princess of a whole galaxy to rock this look!
3. A put-together pony
This low ponytail will have everyone fooled! This effortless hairstyle is not only super easy to do when you’re running late, but also very versatile. You can wear this ponytail from the beginning of your day at work to your night out for drinks with the girls. It’s classy, timeless, and easily achievable especially if you have medium-to-long-length hair!
4. Half-up top knot
This easy and effortless hairstyle is perfect for those of you rocking a trendy lob or shoulder-length hair. You simply gather the top layer of your hair and tie it in a messy bun, which you can also mess around with to look more or less structured. For a more volumized look, you can also tease that top layer you gathered before tying it up in the bun. Feel free to also use as many bobby pins as needed for this look, I promise no one would notice!
5. Double braids
These double braids can be achieved in a matter of minutes, possibly even less if you already know how to French- or Dutch-braid your hair without looking. For the effortless hairstyle below, simply part your hair down the middle to create two sections and then braid your hair accordingly. To create the messy bun, it’ll be easier to start by tying off your hair into a low ponytail once you stop braiding at the back of your neck. Then wrap the hair to create a bun, pulling out strands (but not too many!) until you get the effortless look you want.
6. Pin accessory
Adding a pin accessory to your low ponytail, featured in the image below, or even a half-up half-down hairstyle can add class to your entire look. This accessory is perfect for those of you who have minimalistic aesthetic, as it is simple yet bold enough to stand alone. These pin accessories add versatility to already effortless hairstyles, perfect to wear throughout your whole day!
7. Low messy bun
This timeless look says in the iconic words of Beyonce, “I woke up like this.” Perfect for any casual occasion, a low messy bun is cute and functional, especially for bad hair days or outdoors in hot summer heat. What defines a “messy bun” are the random, sometimes imperfect strands of hair leaping from the bun itself and the tendrils that frame your face.
8. High ponytail
There’s a reason the effortless and sleek hairstyle of a high ponytail is Ariana Grande’s signature look. It’s easy to do, functional, and also adds class to your outfit. High ponytails are great effortless hairstyles for both formal and informal events. You can easily add volume to the base by lightly teasing parts of your hair as well! The high ponytail looks amazing with a great pair of bold statement earrings as seen in the photo below.
9. Loose beach waves
When it comes to effortless hairstyles, beach waves are the way to go if you want to add some texture to your natural hair. Easily achieved by using a hair wand and texturizing spray, you can get loose waves without actually making the trip down to the ocean. To get the look even faster, you can also loosely braid your hair overnight in two sections with French- or Dutch-style braids. Just make sure to add a little texturizing spray or a non-crunchy hairspray to have the waves last longer!
