Five quick hairstyles to save you time in the morning

Top know HERO.jpg

We're going to make an assumption here: you like to look nice for work. 

The thing is, particularly in the winter, we all like to have our sleep, which means our window for getting ready in the mornings in much shorter, as getting out of bed is much (MUCH) harder. 

But we have found a solution - quick hairstyles that can be done in minutes. Even better, no washing is required. All you need is dirty tresses, hairbands and some grips. 

Take a look at our favourite speedy tutorials below.

The double braid

Best for: long hair

Need a quick hairstyle during the summer, or just want to cheer yourself up in the long cold winter months? Then this double braid is the way forward. While it requires fairly long hair, it is ideal for when you want to look like you've spent ages on your 'do but have, in reality, spent hardly any time at all.

The chignon for short hair

Best for: short to long hair

The chignon is a classic up do but always a bit of a struggle when you've got slightly shorter (i.e. shoulder length) hair. This look is ideal for work but also if you're going to a fancy event and are pressed for time.

The Messy Ponytail

The Quick Top Knot

Best for: long to medium length hair

Don't worry, you won't need a doughnut or a sock for this hairstyle. Instead, you just need some dexterous hands and dirty hair. Simply put, you just have to make sure you comb it first, tie in a ponytail, do lots of backcombing and then secure with some kirby grips.

Quick curls

Best for: short to long hair

Curling your hair? In the morning? Yes, it can be done and it doesn't actually have to take forever. Simply shove your hair in a ponytail, divide into two parts and then grab your curling iron and go. This method is all about bulk curling but it still produces a brilliant result.
