10 Simple Hairstyles For A Busy Morning

You’ve probably heard the expression, “the devil is in the details.” Well, when it comes to your hair, this couldn’t be more true. The right hairstyle can make or break your day — and if you’re anything like me (or any other busy person), mornings are already stressful enough without throwing the fuss of doing your hair in the mix.

So what to do? Simple: Stick with easy-to-do styles that look polished and put together. With these 10 simple hairstyles for busy mornings, you can still look put-together even after sleeping in!

Messy ponytail

To pull off this look, you’ll need to have your hair in a ponytail. To get the best results with this hairstyle, be sure to use products that will help hold your hair together and keep it looking messy.

If you have thick or curly hair, use pomade or wax on the ends of each strand before braiding them together into one braid. If you have straight hair (like me), simply tie all of your locks into a loose ponytail at the top of your head and secure it with an elastic band. That’s it! You’re ready for work now!

Quick bun

To make a bun, divide your hair into two sections and twist them together at the base of your neck. Then, wrap the twisted section around itself to form a circle. Secure it with bobby pins or hair elastics if necessary. You can also use this method to create a bun with your hair up in curlers!

Textured Updo

A textured updo is a versatile hairstyle that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. To create this look, start by curling your hair with a curling iron or wand. Once you have achieved the desired texture, gather your hair into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. Then, twist and pin sections of the ponytail into a messy bun, leaving some strands loose for added texture. To finish the look, pull out a few face-framing pieces and spritz with hairspray for hold. The result is a chic and effortless style that is perfect for any event.

Top knot

A top knot is probably the most common hairstyle for a busy morning. It’s quick, easy and can be worn with any length of hair. If you have long hair that’s down to your waist or below then this style will work best for you.

If you want to create a more polished look then use some bobby pins or hair clips so that your hair doesn’t fall out of place throughout the day!

Side braid

A side braid is one of the easiest hairstyles to do, and it’s perfect for a busy morning. To get started, part your hair on either side of your head and brush through it with a paddle brush or wide-toothed comb. Then make a part that runs from one ear across your forehead to the other ear–this will be where you braid your hair.

Next, use an elastic band (or two) at each end of the braid so that it stays together as you’re braiding. Start by taking small sections from underneath each ear down towards your chin; these sections should be about 1 inch wide as they come out from under your ears but get wider as they go down towards your chin because their widths will increase with each new piece added into the braid itself until there are no more pieces left at all! Once all those sections have been added into each side’s respective strand(s), move onto adding another layer closer toward where they meet up with each other near their starting point(s).

Double French braid

Double French braid is a simple, yet elegant hairstyle. It’s a great way to add some flair to your regular ponytail or braid.

Here’s how you can do it:

  • Divide your hair into two sections, then create two braids as normal (see below). Be sure not to pull on the ends of each section too tightly; otherwise, they will end up too big and bulky when you’re done!
  • Bring one side over the other so they meet in the middle of your head at an angle of about 45 degrees (or whatever feels right for you). Then twist them together until they’re completely intertwined with each other–this takes some practice but once mastered looks fantastic!

Messy Bun

Messy buns are a popular hairstyle choice that can be dressed up or down for any occasion. This style is achieved by gathering the hair into a high ponytail and twisting it into a bun shape. The key to a messy bun is to keep it loose and relaxed, with pieces of hair falling out around the face for a natural, effortless look.

To achieve a messy bun, start by gathering the hair into a high ponytail at the crown of the head. Use a hair tie to secure the ponytail, but don’t pull the hair all the way through the last loop. Instead, leave the ends of the hair loose and let them hang down.

Next, use your fingers to twist the ponytail into a bun shape. Don’t worry about it being perfect; the goal is to create a loose, carefree look. Once the bun is in place, use bobby pins to secure any loose pieces of hair that are sticking out.

To make the messy bun look even more natural, pull a few strands of hair out around the face. This will help soften the look and make it appear more effortless. If desired, you can also add a hair accessory such as a headband or hair scarf to dress up the style.

Side-swept bangs

Side-swept bangs are a popular hairstyle choice that involves sweeping the hair to the side. This style can be achieved with various lengths of hair, and it can be worn by people of all ages and genders. Side-swept bangs have been a trend for many years and continue to be a popular choice for those looking to update their hairstyle.

To achieve side-swept bangs, the hair is cut so that it falls across the forehead and is then swept to one side. This style can be achieved with any hair length, from short pixie cuts to long hair. The length of the bangs can also vary, from just above the eyebrows to chin-length. Side-swept bangs can be cut with layers or bluntly, depending on the desired look.

Sleek side ponytail

  • Start with clean, dry hair. Brush out any tangles or knots.
  • Part the hair to one side. You can choose which side you prefer based on your personal preference and face shape.
  • Gather the hair into a low ponytail on the opposite side of the part. Use a brush to smooth out any bumps or flyaways.
  • Secure the ponytail with a hair tie. You can use a clear elastic band or one that matches your hair color.
  • Take a small section of hair from the underside of the ponytail and wrap it around the hair tie to conceal it. Secure the end of the section with a bobby pin.
  • Apply some hair gel or edge control to the hairline and sides of the head to create a sleek, polished look. Use a brush or comb to smooth out any bumps or flyaways.
  • For an extra touch of glamour, you can add a hair accessory such as a barrette or hair clip to the side of the ponytail.
  • And there you have it – a sleek and stylish side ponytail that is sure to turn heads!
