5 simple and easy hairstyle hacks for long hair

by

It can be easy to get stuck in a hair rut, but there are plenty of easy and stunning hairstyles you can do before you rush out the door in the morning – we’ve just forgotten about them!

Up your hair game with these cute and simple hairstyles.

1. The ballerina bun
This is so much easier than it seems. Simply turn your head upside down (stay with us here!), gather your hair into a high ponytail and secure with a hair bobbin. Then, twist the ponytail around itself until it resembles Lauren's bun and simply secure with bobby pins. See, we told you it was easy!

2. The cutesy pigtails
No, not just for five-year-olds – you can totally rock these pigtails too, missy! These are pretty self-explanatory, divide your hair evenly and secure with bobbins. You could also experiment with plaits or even fish tail if you have time!

 

3. The high ponytail
Make like Ariana Grande and gain a couple of inches with the high ponytail. If you don't have long luscious locks like Ariana, we have a hack so you can fake it. Get your hair into a half ponytail, leaving the bottom half of your hair free. When it is secure, go to the bottom half and tie that into a ponytail directly underneath the top one. Then pull the top one over and no one will know the difference! 

4. The side plait
While the fishtail braid may be all the rage at the moment, it takes time you just may not have. Never underestimate the simplicity of the regular plait, and bringing it to the side adds an element of glamour too. 

5. The half bun
This is the perfect lazy Sunday brunch hair. Still down, but out of your face – our kind of hair! Simply create a half ponytail and then twist it into a bun and secure with bobby pins.
