Most days, there isn’t enough time to create mega curls or French chiffons before work or class, but there are only so many days you can rock the top-knot or bed-head look. Fortunately for you, we’ve compiled a list of quick and easy hairstyles that will instantly freshen up your look even if you’ve hit snooze one too many times. With that said, here’s our roundup of five hairstyles that will only take under three minutes and have you looking completely put together. 

Side-twisted bangs: 

Whether you’re growing them out, or, just not feeling them today, you can solve that problem in 30 seconds. Twist one strand of hair over another and then pin it near your ear. 

Crown braids:

Take a large chunk of your hair from the front and begin French braiding it down the side. Once you get to the end of the braid, tease the ends and secure with bobby pins. 

Braided bun:

Don’t be daunted by the title because it’s actually incredibly simple. First, you’re going to make two crown French braids on either side of your head. Once you have two secured braids bring them to the back of your head and tie them in a low ponytail. Then start twisting it into a bun and secure with another bobby pin and rubber band. And Voilà! You’ll have a look similar to the picture below.

Give your hair a lift: 

Tease the back of your hair to create more lift and volume. Once you’re done creating height make sure to smooth it over with a fine toothed comb and secure with hairspray. 

Bobby pin tricks:

Have you ever thought of arranging your bobby pins in interesting patterns? How about making a cute triangle on the back of your head, or making a hashtag sign when you’re sweeping your hair to the side. You can even freshen up a ponytail by wrapping hair around the band and securing with bobby pins. 

So go ahead and catch some extra z’s—after all, it’s called beauty rest for a reason. And don’t forget to comment below with any hair hacks of your own!
