Hairstyle Ideas for When You've Got No Time

When you need to be somewhere but you hardly have time to wash your face and clean your teeth, you need an extra-fast hairstyle to make you look ready for the day. Here we offer a few suggestions that you can achieve in minutes, even on your way to the office.

The Messy Bun

This is much easier to achieve than it looks and will give you a polished look in minutes. Firstly, make a high ponytail and then add a hair band. Twist the ponytail so it forms a bun, and then fix it in place with hair grips around the edges. Add volume to the hair on your crown by gently pulling sections upwards from the roots using a pencil.

If you want more volume permanently, you could consider a perm. According to The Guardian, these are making a comeback. However, modern perms are more about a natural look with added volume than curls.

The Double Ponytail

This is another way of adding volume and giving your hair a more casual look. The first step is to create a half up and half down ponytail, leaving the hair from below your ears down. Then make the rest of your hair into another ponytail directly beneath the top one. Using a fine-tooth comb, tease out the hair in the top ponytail to make it fuller.
The Braided Low Bun

This looks complicated and sophisticated, but it is actually quite simple. Team it with one of the practical midi dresses available from suppliers such as for a go-anywhere look. First, secure your hair in a low ponytail using an elastic band. Plait the hair loosely and tie it off with a clear elastic band. Wind the plait around the base of your ponytail, tuck any loose ends away, and secure the bun with hairgrips.

The Half Up

This is a really quick style that is good for work or leisure. Make a ponytail with some of your hair, leaving some to frame your face and the hair from below your ears loose. Tuck the end of the ponytail into a gap in the elastic band securing it and pull through to make sure it is secure.

These ideas will give you those extra precious minutes when you really have no time.
