When I get up in the morning, the last thing I want to do is spend a ton of time on my hair. What I’d really rather do is sleep as late as I possibly can. But I don’t want to go out looking like I just rolled out of bed either. Luckily, there are lots of really cute things you can do with your hair, even if you’re as lazy as I am. Here’s to great hair days, even if you don’t have more than just a couple of minutes to get it done.
1 Do a Half up Twist in the Back in Just Seconds
I love this hairstyle and I’m putting it first because I actually did my hair like this when I got up this morning because I was short on time…again. Simply take the sides of your hair and twist them back toward the back of your head, clipping them together with a cute barrette. This hairstyle looks great for work or play and can be done in mere seconds. Perfect!
2 Add a Braid to Your Ponytail
If you’re going to stick with the tried and true ponytail, give it a bit of glam with a braid. Start by securing your hair at the top of your head like you always do. Then braid a small chunk of the ponytail, using a tiny rubberband or clip to hold it at the end. This is a fast hairstyle, but the addition of the braid gives it some flair that makes it look like you spent a good amount of time prepping for the day.
3 Do a Quick and Easy Bun at the Nape of Your Neck
The thing about a bun is that it can look glamorous and polished, even if you whip it up in just a couple of seconds. By securing the bun at the nape of your neck, you give the look a sophistication you just don’t get when it’s on top of your head. Start with a ponytail, then wrap it around the elastic and secure the ends underneath with a bobby pin. Easy!
4 A Flower Braid is Easy and Looks like It Took Hours
This look is so cute and everyone will think you spent way more time on it than you did. And it only takes a tiny bit of efforts so any lazy girl can get it done just right, myself included. Start by pulling back the top half and sides of your hair and braiding it down to the end, securing with an elastic. Gently tousle the braid and then wrap it around, tucking it under and putting a bobby pin in it, forming the shape of a flower at the back of your head.
5 Do Some Lazy Girl Curls
It’s no secret that it takes forever to curl an entire head of hair with a curling iron. No more! Use this little secret and even the laziest girl can have fab curls all day long. Put your hair in a ponytail, then separate it into two sections, curling each section separately. Take out the ponytail, tousle and you’re ready to go.
6 Do Side Twists with Cute Clips
This look is similar to the first one, but instead of clipping your twists of hair on the back of your head, you’re going to clip them just above your ears. You’ll look like you put in some effort, even though it was minimal and you’ll have a style that works for the office or the mall. Use cute little bobby pins or barrettes to give the look your own sense of style.
7 Go for the Headband Halo Effect
This is super easy and super fast, making it the ideal lazy girl hairstyle. Place a headband over your hair, sort of like a hippie flower child. Then wrap sections of your hair around the headband and secure them underneath, creating the illusion of a headband made out of your own hair. Cute!
