Never have a bad hair day again!
Running late and not sure what to do with your hair? Don't fret! We've got some of the best hairstyles you can put together in minutes.
Arm yourself with these quick and easy hair hacks:
1. The Knot and Twist Updo
Want an nice looking updo without spending hours in a salon chair? Just separate your hair into halves and tie them together as if you're tying your shoes. Then twist the two ends around each others, and pin them in place with a bobby pin.
2. Keep Your Pony Tail Perky
Sick of rocking a limp pony tail? Just add a couple of bobby pins like so to keep your your hair from easing down the back of your head throughout the day.
3. Try a Turban
If you're not in the mood to deal with your hair but want something a little classier than a beanie, try turning your favorite scarf into a turban. You can find quick and easy directions for two different styles here!
4. The Tuck and Cover
Check out this cool way to use a headband as part of your updo. Just put it on over the top of your head as shown, pull the ends up and over the bottom of the band, and tuck them back down into it.
.5. The Tuck and Cover Half-Do Variation
This cool little variation works a lot like the tuck and cover above, but instead of tucking all of your hair into the headband, you just pull back two little strands from the front of your head, near your bangs. To achieve the cool princess-y look, rap each strand up and over the headband several times until they meet in the middle.
6. Use This Hack To Stay Fly-Away Free
Keep that old toothbrush around instead of throwing it out next time so it can team up with your hairspray to keep fly-aways at bay!
7. Dry Shampoo May Be No Further Than Your Cabinet
Running late and don't have time to wash your greasy hair? As it turns out, cornstarch works much the same way as dry shampoo! Just sprinkle a little on your roots the next time you're in a pinch and brush it into your hair.
9. Kiss Frizzy Hair Good-Bye Forever
No calming gel? No problem. Just substitute in a little hand-lotion and you'll be frizz-free in no time.
10. How To Get Long Curls
Pile your head on top of your head and tie it into a pony tail right about your forehead. Then separate it out into strips and curl it with a curling iron (a spiral one works best). Add some heavy duty hair spray, remove the pony tail holder and you're let those gorgeous curls fall freely around your shoulders.
10. The Next Level Messy Bun
Tie your hair into a loose pony tail, leaving a little room between your head and the hair band. Then pull the pony tail in between the hair under the pony tail holder until it feels secure. Let your hair fall free and you've got an easy, yet nice looking little bun.
11. Add a Little Length To Your Pony Tail
Why wait for your hair to grow out when you can use this simple double pony tail trick?
12. The Braided Bun Updo
Separate your hair into two halves and braid them into ponytails. Then twist them together, and hold them each in place with bobby pins.
13. The Hair Tie-Less Pony Tail
There's nothing worse than accidentally snapping your last hair tie when you need to keep your hair outta your face. Next time it happens to you, just separate it into two halves and tie them loosely together.
14. The Loose Half Braid
For a cool and easy boho look, braid one side of your hair loosely and hold one or all of the strands of the braid in place with a bobby pin.
