Now I’m a big fan of my bed, so getting up early in the mornings to do my hair nicely isn’t something that appeals to me. I’d much rather have the extra time sleeping! I’ve found 5 easy hairstyles that are quick to do before work or school, but still leave you looking ready for the day ahead.
The first go-to hair style is natural curls. My hair is awful to curl and using a curling wand just never lasts. My way of doing it is having a shower the night before, using some serum on my damp hair and then popping it into two plaits. I then sleep in it overnight and when I wake up the next morning my hair is beautiful and curly! I love this method because it’s so easy and I can just take it out and go in the mornings. The serum helps to keep any frizz down and I love this hairstyle in the winter months as my long hair will keep my neck warm if it’s down!
The second hairstyle is a low-down bun. I don’t personally like the look of my hair in a normal bun, so this is a good alternative for me! I separate my hair into a middle parting and create a sleek bun at the bottom of my head. I tend to pull through two pieces of hair at the front too to add to the look. This is really quick and simple to do, and keeps my hair out of my face whilst I’m working!
Thirdly, half up and half down. This is one of my go-to looks because it’s very quick but still looks nice! I tend to run my fingers from my eyebrows diagonally towards my hair and cut a section out. I then pull through two bits of hair at the front and tie the section into a ponytail. You can even alternate and put the section into a bun. Both are quick and easy, but make it look like you’ve made an effort!
Next up, small plaits. If I’ve washed my hair and I leave it natural, I like to add a little something to it to make it look more presentable. For this, I take two small sections of my hair from the front and make two separate plaits going backwards. I make them a little bit French by adding in small other sections, and then I put some grips in to hold them in place. Sometimes I will put the ends of the plaits into ponytails, just to add some volume to my hair and add to the look.
Finally, a classic ponytail. I tend to do this if I really don’t have a lot of time or if my hair is due a wash. I prefer to have a sleek ponytail, so I usually use a little bit of serum or frizz spray and a small comb to flatten any baby hairs and make it look as sleek as possible. Sometimes I’ll take a small art of the ponytail and wrap it round the actual ponytail, to make it look more put-together and fashionable. I like to keep my natural wavy hair for a ponytail, so that it has more volume and texture.
So there are my top 5 hairstyles. They are all super easy and quick to do, so you can buy yourself some extra time in bed in the mornings! I like all of these hairstyles in the winter, because the wind and poor weather won’t have too much of an effect on them and it keeps hair out of my face especially when it’s windy. When my hair is down it also acts as a very good scarf to keep my neck warm!
