Sometimes it seems like life is so busy that it would be best to just start wearing a turban every day, as it would give you a good amount of time to spend on another rushed aspect of getting ready every morning. Sure, if you spent more time at home and had less to do, you might have sufficient time to play and explore the best hairstyle for every specific day, but this is real life, and it is what it is. With all of the really luxe hairstyles and braiding effects that keep evolving, it would be a real luxury to try one out from time to time, but time is not there to explore these options on your schedule. While you’re thinking that there has got to be something more than giving your hair a quick brush-through and you’re done, you’re right. Actually, there is more than one method for producing great hair in a hurry. Having little to no time doesn’t mean that your hair has to go undone, consequently making your look suffer and ultimately becoming a downer for the day.
Messy Bedhead Bun Fun
The day of the messy bun is here, and you can rock this one easily. All you’ll need is one of those cool over-sized bun donuts. Make a high (unsecured) ponytail and slip the bun onto it where you’ll then, on the top side of the bun, secure the ponytail by using a covered elastic band or hair tie. Next, wrap the ends somewhat loosely over and under the donut, in a kind of haphazard fashion, allowing a certain number of errant strands to escape your grip. Before fully securing and spraying, pull out a few wispy pieces around your face and using hairspray, form these wisps to your liking.
Tied on the Side Bun
This has got to be the forever easiest go-to “do” ever! This one does require your hair being long enough to work, though. Begin by pulling your hair all to one side, and twist it all together, relatively securely. Next, loop the twisted hair around one full pass and loop remaining twisted hair through the center hole made by the loop. It’s OK if any hair remains sticking out, but finish this one by securing with bobby pins and go.
Knot Your Hair
A really cool effect: This one begins with your dividing your hair into two sections at the nape of your neck. Give each side a slight twist, and then loop one side up, over, down and back up through. Secure with bobby pins, or if your hair is long enough, you can continue to make successive knots, securing with bobby pins as you create each one. Finish off with an elastic stretchy band that is covered with your own hair and secured by bobby pins.
Another fast and super easy one, you start by making a low ponytail and securing it with an elastic band, at the nape of your neck. In the space between your scalp and the elastic band, find the point that is at the center of your head, and with your finger, create a hole there in your hair. Next, take the ends of the ponytail upward and stick them down, through the hole. This will cause the hair leading from your face back to the ponytail to twist inward, creating a nice roll effect. You can work both sides to roll more, as desired. Light spray and you’re set!
