quick hairstyles


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.




Nothing compares to the ultimate panic of waking up late for work. It’s impossible to find anything to wear, you’re about to miss the bus, and you haven’t even thought about washing your hair.

Here are a few quick fixes for those days where you have no choice but to work that bedhead look…

1. Whip out the dry shampoo
This product is a saviour for second or third day hair. Spray it into the roots of unbrushed hair, let it sit for a few minutes to soak up excess oil, then either gently tousle it with your fingers and brush it out. Ta-da! Instant grease-free locks.

2. Get sleek ends
If your hair is a total mess unless it’s been blowdried carefully, invest in some dry conditioner – the perfect dry shampoo sidekick! This hydrating spray only goes on the bottom section of your hair – it’s too heavy for the roots. Simply spray on in short bursts and style as usual.

3, Go for beach waves
You can’t go wrong with wild, beachy hair. Start with your trusty dry shampoo and then add sea salt spray all over. Scrunch with your fingers to mess things up a bit and you’re good to go!

4. Try a chic ballerina bun or chignon
These styles actually work far better with dirty hair as your strands have more weight and will stay in place more easily. Start by pulling hair back into a tight pony and then pin into a bun or twist into a chignon.

5. Hide it with a hairband
A thick hairband or even a headscarf or turban can hide a multiple of woes – and they’re all stylish options too. Try a headscarf tied at the back of your neck or even tied into a bow on the top of your head for a really cute, low-maintenance look.

6. Throw it into a messy top-knot
Again, this is another look that works better with second-day hair. Gather hair into a ponytail, twist and pin it at the top of your head. Loose and messy strands make this look, so you can really embrace your bad hair day!
