If you're the kind of person who favours an extra ten minutes in bed rather than having enough time to get everything done in the morning, an arsenal of easy, go-to hairstyles is key to avoiding the bedhead look when you're legging it out the door.

These hairstyles not only look chic and elegant, but they take no time to do – so nobody has to know you pressed snooze six times in a row!

1. The Single Twist
This look is so pretty – all it involves is taking a piece of hair from the left of your head and pinning it on the right, then taking a piece of hair from the right of your head, crossing it over to the left, tucking it underneath the other piece of hair and pinning.


2. The Messy Topknot
Most women have their own way of doing this but if you're short on time we suggest this method. Tease your hair and tie it in a ponytail, the higher the better. Gently backcomb the ponytail to give it some volume before wrapping the hair around the hair bobble into a bun shape and tying again with another bobble. Pin any loose strands. Easy!


3. The Half Topknot
Even easier than the standard topknot, if that's possible. Gather some strands of hair at the back of your head and tie in a ponytail, leaving most of the hair down. Again, tease the ponytail and twist it into a bun before securing with a bobble. 


4. The Twisted Ponytail
Simply divide your hair along your parting so that it's parted evenly down the centre. Tie both halves into a loose knot and secure underneath with bobby pins. If you prefer you can then pin it underneath into a twist or leave it as it is.


5. The Tease and Tie
This hairstyle is the stuff Tumblr photos are made of. Tease your hair at the crown and pin some smoother strands of hair over it. Take a strand of hair from above your left ear and one from your right and plait each one before joining the two strands at the back of your head and tying with a clear elastic.
