If you are tired of sacrificing style for punctuality, then you should definitely try out some of these awesome hairstyle tricks that you can do with little effort or time.
Make That Ponytail Pop!
Tired of the usual ponytail? Give it a boost with nothing more than two bobby pins! Apply two bobby pins at the base of your ponytail for a little height and pop!
No Bobby Pins? Use Two Hair Ties Instead
If you don't have bobby pins, try it with two hair ties. Start by pulling the back half of your hair into a high ponytail using one tie. Then, pull the rest of your hair into a larger ponytail around the first. This will give you the height and pop you are looking for!
Or Just Use A Butterfly Clip
You can neatly hide a small butterfly clip in your ponytail to give you same height with even less effort.
Updo In Seconds!
If you are looking for a quick and easy updo, try this out: separate your hair in halves, knot them together, twist ‘em, and pin it in place!
Getting More Use Out Of That Elastic Headband
If you want to keep the hair off of the back of your neck, but want to look stylish at the same time, tuck your hair into an elastic headband into a casual
The Wrap Around
If you want a classy, stylish look with little effort, consider trying this with a headband. Take a strip of hair from each side and wrap it around the band until they meet in the back. Your head will be crowned with a coiled hair-tiara.
Curls In Flash
Gather your hair into a ponytail and separate your hair where you would like your part to be. Then curl away! Once they cool, undo your ponytail and use some flexible hold hair spray for a fun look in a short time!
Pull your hair into a loose ponytail, leaving some space between your head and the hair tie. Next, pull the end of the ponytail through the space you left under the hair tie. After you pull enough through for it to hold, tighten the hair tie and let your hair fall over it into a quick and easy loose bun.
Hair Tie Free Messy Bun
Start by pulling your hair into a semi-loose ponytail, twisting the hair, and wrapping into a bun. The trick here to avoid using pins or hair ties is to tuck the bun under the rest of your hair. So, while holding onto the bun with one hand, pull up your hair from one side of the bun and push the bun in while you pull the hair layer over. It will probably take some practice to get it right, but once you do, it's a simple trick to pull your hair up without any a hair tie!
For this quick updo, pull your hair into two pigtails, loosely braid each into two strands. Once done, just twist the two together, and tuck in the ends into the bun itself and voila!
If you want to make sure that bun stays in place, you can use twisty pins instead of bobby pins.
Messy Braid Without A Tie
Separate your hair into two pieces and tie them around one another creating a messy, loose braid without a hair tie.
This trick works especially well if your hair has not been washed because it will hold with less help from hairspray. Definitely use some hairspray as it will keep you going all day long.
Great For Long Bangs
If you want to get your long bangs out of your face, twist them into a mini braid and use two bobby pins to hold it back as shown. Unless you have natural waves, you will have to spend a little time finishing out the rest of this look, but pulling the bangs back only takes seconds.
If you know you have to be out the door quickly the next morning, apply dry shampoo to your hair before bed and skip the morning shower. The powder will work itself into your hair overnight and will give you the look you want the next day.
Thick hair can take a long time to dry, so if you are in a rush, do a half wash in the sink.
Hands Free Hair Dryer
You can always get creative like this little kid, OR you can buy a product that is actually hands free. There are also mounts for your existing hair dryer if you would prefer not to buy another dryer altogether.
Double Up Your Efforts
Using a hot air brush will help to dry your hair as you style it, getting the job done in half of the time!
Turn Up The Volume
Use self-grip rollers to give your hair more volume without hassling with a round brush blow out.
Hide Your Hair In A Chic Turban With A Scarf
If you don't want to worry about fixing your hair, you can hide it under a trendy turban. Tie a knot with the scarf in the front, and then wrap both ends around towards the back. Criss-cross the material tightly and then tuck it into the sides. Grab the material from one side and pull it up and over your head, tucking it neatly into the other side.
Don’t Forget Your Toothbrush
If you are struggling with fly-aways, you can spray a toothbrush with a little hairspray, and brush it through the trouble spots for an easy and fast taming method.
Boar Bristle Brush
Boar bristle brushes can help to pull oils from your scalp and strengthen your hair more so that a regular brush.
