In all honesty, when we have little to no time or when our hair just doesn’t want to behave, all women share the same problem: how to achieve a quick, beautiful hairdo without much fuss?

Today, we will take a look at some tips and tricks on how to style your hair in less than five minutes, allowing you thus to enjoy a little more snoozing time each morning.

1. The Sparkly Headband or Hair Clips

Sparkly Headband or Hair Clips

If you have a bad hair day but no time to wash, condition and style, you can use an optical illusion or a trick: clip and embellish your hair with hairpieces like a sparkly metallic headband or sparkly bobby pins, clips and colored hair bands.

Good for: long and medium straight/curly hair

How to achieve it:

  • Slip on a sparkly, statement headband Taylor Swift style and make sure you have everything tied in a bun at the base of your neck. It doesn’t matter if it’s a loose and not-so-perfect bun, as the headpieces are the real game-changers

2. Pumped up Short Straight Hair

Pumped up Short Straight Hair

You can be the proud owner of a straight gorgeous short burgundy hair in a classy bob cut or a dark straight one in a pixie cut. You still need to make it look beautiful without much fuss. This hairdo doesn’t take more than three-four minutes, and it is easy as a breeze:

Good for: straight short/medium hair

How to achieve it:

  • Run a boar bristle brush through your hair while you blow dry to give it volume, curls, and shine
  • Secure with hairspray or some gel and mess it up to have floating strands in a loose hairstyle that will make you look laid back and stylish.
  • Use your curling iron and some hairspray for quick, loose curls.
  • You can make the pixie look even pixier with some sparkly pins or a cute headband.

This will only take four or five minutes of your mornings and will look incredibly new and fresh. The best part is that you can try this hairstyle even when you have more time and your hair is in its best shape as the hairdo is feminine, delicate and stylish – goes very well with dates, girls’ night outs and daily errands running.

Good for: long and medium straight hair

How to achieve it:

  • Divide your hair as low as possible to the neck into two pigtails and secure them with an elastic
  • Braid each pigtail and secure the edges with an elastic band as well.
  • Twist and wrap the braided pigtails as a crown at the back of your head, securing them with bobby pins.
  • A little hairspray will hold your loose strands and add some shine – don’t worry about hairs floating around your face, this is a free and laid back
  • You can try the braided version as well if you feel more like Lady Galadriel one particular morning.

4. Side-Swept Ponytail

  • Gather your hair in a side-swept ponytail and secure it with a colored elastic band or some gemstones hair clips (a little bit of morning glam can turn any bad hair day into a success).
  • If you have the time, curl the ponytail ends on your finger and secure them with a bit of hairspray or gel.
