We would all love to have the time (or effort) to watch those super complicated tutorials on YouTube for big tigress curls, a classy fishtail, or even how to master the easiest of them all: the “I just threw my hair up like this” topknot, buuuuut… how unrealistic is that? If you’re anything like me, your morning routine end with five minutes leftover to do your hair, so a quick brush and a spray of dry shampoo it is. Never fear though, as after a bit of research, I have found five of the easiest / quickest hairstyles for you to do in ten minutes (While looking like you went to a professional!):
1 FLOWER BRAID
1 Gather a section of hair from both sides of your head in line with your temples, and put the sections into a small pony in the back. Then, braid the pony down to the ends.
2 Tug at sections of the braid to loosen it to make it look more voluminous. The exaggerated edges also help create that flower-petal finish.
3 Spin the braid around into a bun, and pin it securely against your head.
2 FIVE MINUTE CURLS
1 Secure your hair in a high pony and split the tail in half.
2 Wrap the first half over and around a 1-inch curling wand for 10 seconds or less, depending on how easily your hair curls. Repeat with the second half.
3 Let down your ponytail and separate the curls with your fingers.
3 VOLUMINOUS PONYTAIL
1 Pull your hair back into a high ponytail and secure it with a hair tie.
2 To give your ponytail extra oomph, split the tail in half and place a small clip (one that matches your hair color) into the base. Then hide the clip with the top half of hair.
4 TWISTED HALO
1 Twist back a small section of hair from one side of your head, and secure it with a pin in the middle of your head.
2 Then twist back a small section of hair from the other side of your head, tuck it behind the first twisted section, and pin it in the middle of your head.
5 MINIMAL ERROR BUN
1 For a secure bun that won’t budge, tie your hair back in two low ponytails tied close together.
2 Twist the two tails in opposite directions until you’ve formed your bun, and secure with pins.
