Plus, we’ve added some tips on how to speed up your hair styling time. Your morning routine just got simpler!
The Best Quick, Easy Hairstyles for a Simpler Morning Hair Routine
This easy updo works with greasy hair to create a finished, polished look. Brush hair into a high ponytail and secure with a hair tie. Separate the ponytail into two sections, then twist and wrap around the base of the ponytail. Secure with bobby pins, then use hairspray to tame any flyaways.
Loose Side Braid
We love this simple hairstyle because it’s cute and it protects your hair from tangling. Simply pull hair to the side, loosely braid, and secure with a hair tie. It doesn’t have to be perfect – you can re-braid it throughout the day if needed.
This quick and easy hairstyle is flirty and takes just minutes to style. Pull hair into a high ponytail at the crown and secure with a hair tie. Note: using a thicker hair tie will give the ponytail more volume. Or you can fake it by inserting to bobby pins into the hair tie at the base of the ponytail.
Faux Chignon with Headband
This easy chignon updo only looks difficult. Place a stretchy headband on top of your hair, circling the crown. Pin into place at the nape of the neck. Next, wrap sections of hair around the headband, tucking in the loose strands. Add a couple pins for extra hold, and that’s it! We found this one-minute how-to video.
The best part is, when you take out this simple hairstyle, you’ll have subtly gorgeous waves.
4 Ways to Speed Up Your Morning Routine
1. Prep at Night
To save time in the morning, try doing some of your morning routine before bed. If you usually shower in the morning, try showering at night. If you have long hair, braid it before bed to keep it from tangling while you sleep. That way, you won’t have to spend precious minutes working out knots in the morning.
2. Invest in Your Hair
There’s no doubt about it: healthy, strong hair is much easier to style than hair that’s weak and prone to breakage. Taking Viviscal hair growth† supplements twice a day provides your hair follicles with all the vitamins and minerals they need to grow healthy, gorgeous hair.* If your hair naturally looks gorgeous, that’s less work for you in the morning!
3. Apply Dry Shampoo Before Bed
You can also cut down on styling time by applying dry shampoo before going to sleep. This helps absorb greasiness overnight, so you wake up with fresh hair and gorgeous texture.
4. Get the Right Haircut
Having a haircut that works with your natural hair texture instead of against it can make all the difference in the morning. Ask your hairstylist for a wash-and-go cut, so you can put down the styling tools and get out the door faster!
