Quick Hairstyles That Take Less Than 5 Minutes

A common scenario among women today involves waking up late for work, shopping or household duties and finding it difficult to find a good hairstyle they can whip up in a matter of minutes.

If you have experienced the same issue, then here are some lightening quick hairstyles that can help you set your hair in less than 10 minutes or so. You don’t need to worry about your hair looking horrendous when you step out of your house.

Just follow these tips to get the perfect look (hairstyle) without spending too much time on it.

The Tousled Braid Look

Casual and yet chic, the tousled braid look would suit you for a bright sunny day outdoors. All you need to do is to sweep all your hair back and bring them together in a loose braid. This way, the braid stays intact while letting a few strands to fall out and caress your face at regular intervals.

Alternatively, you can opt for a more carefree look which would involve a hair line braid. Take a few strands of hair near your face and braid them. The rest of the hair goes loose and conveniently stays out of your face.

The Side Swept Ponytail Look

5 minutes is all it takes to perfect this hairstyle. As the name indicates, all you need to do is sweep your hair to one side and tie it in a ponytail. Set the ponytail with some hairspray at the loose ends to give them more bounce and volume.

Again, another common ponytail look involves a high, tight ponytail; it’s a sexy style that you can wear even at work, besides it also gives your hair plenty of volume at the ends. Team it up with a little pouf and you have got the perfect hairstyle for that lunch date. If you are late for work and are pressed for time, just opt for a mussed side ponytail that would look good even in a workplace scenario.

The Choppy Bob Look

Cute, sexy and extremely easy to perfect, the choppy bob look would really suit you no matter where you are. Just take a side part and team it up with a half-up, half-down pouf to get the look.

The Wavy Bob Look

You can also opt for a wavy bob and team it up with side swept bangs to create an impact with onlookers. This hairstyle is simple, easy, extremely breezy and wind proof. All you need is some pomade to keep the bangs in place.

Alternate Looks That Will Never Fail

Of course if none of these options seem to work for you, here are some more ways to escape a bad hair day. Go for a top knot and team it up with a few accessories like head bands.

Alternatively, you can pin the back portion of your hair into a low chignon and then simply curl up the front section to create a classic Hollywood hair style. If nothing seems to work, don’t worry.

You always have plenty of additional options like scarves and hats to cover your un-styled hair. You can choose from a variety of colors and designs to look pretty while warding off stares from your unkempt hair.
