7 Easy Hairstyles for When You're Running Out the Door
So, like, every morning?
If you’re anything like us, those rare mornings when you actually have time to make breakfast, read the paper and give your locks some styling love are few and far between. That’s why we rounded up seven hairstyles you can do on even the busiest of days. Go get 'em, tiger.
This easily achieved 'do is still going strong. Just separate the top section of your hair and twist into a bun on the crown of your head (with or without Ms. Mara’s messy middle part).
Ladies with long hair: All you have to do is start with a high ponytail, whip up a quick braid and wrap it around into a topknot. Easy as that.
But there’s nothin’ wrong with a smooth and simple updo--best achieved, in our opinion, with a mesh chignon tool. Just make sure to hairspray flyaways as you leave.
Middle-Part Low Bun
Or follow Kristen’s lead and pull hair into a bun at the nape of your neck after parting it down the middle. (Bonus points for a few free tousled strands.)
Messy Slept-In Waves
Ahhh, the messier the better when it comes to relaxed waves. Shower in the evening and sleep in a loose braid. In the a.m., run some texturizing spray through locks before dashing out the door.
Take a modern approach to the slicked-back ponytail by spritzing strands with hairspray and pulling them into a tight half-up pony.
This jazzed-up ponytail looks elegant but takes two minutes. Just throw all your hair into a pony, then grab a small section, wrap around your exposed hair tie and hold the hair in place with bobby pins. Done and done.
