5 Ridiculously Easy/Basic Hairstyles

Hey guys!

I have been so  busy moving back to school and haven’t had any time to make any new posts! I started school, and I am in the process of getting my routine back!

Unfortunately, I have 8 AM classes 3 times a week, so that means I have very limited time to get ready because I try and sleep as much as I can. I have mastered the art of styling my hair in a very short amount of time, and I thought I would share my go-to looks help out! All these styles require very little styling tools as well! 🙂

1. Messy Low Bun

I would like to thank this hairstyle for getting me through my life. This messy low bun can be a cute addition to a lazy outfit, or can be paired with something nicer to bring attention to your outfit. With short hair my buns only require a quick loop, but with long hair I either do a twisted cinnamon roll bun or a loop with a second hairband to secure the hair. I like to pull out my front layered pieces to make the style look more effortless and messy.

Required tools:

  • Hairbrush
  • Hairband

2. Messy High Bun

I like a high bun for hotter days, lazy days, or with a high neckline top. I repeat the same step of a loop bun but on the crown of my head and pull out fewer pieces in the front. With short hair I sometimes have to pin the hairs above my neck so they don’t fall out of the ponytail. Once you have mastered the art of a perfect messy bun, you have mastered the art of life.

Required tools:

  • Hairbrush
  • Hairband

3. Messy Low Ponytail

Another hairstyle that is ridiculously easy, but helps me to look way more put together than I am! A low ponytail can look a little more professional than a bun sometimes. I prefer to straighten the hair in the ponytail, but that step is completely optional. Something fun to add is a braided piece of hair to wrap around the ponytail to cover the hairband!

Required tools:

  • Hairbrush
  • Hairband

4. Slick Low Ponytail

I tuck my hair back when I have to look somewhat professional, want to highlight my makeup, or if my front layers are just frizzy and not cute lol. I like to pin pieces behind my ears to make sure they don’t move around. With a nice face of makeup and a good lip color, this easy slick pony can transform your entire look in less than a minute! I also like to add a pin at the base of my ponytail to give it a teased and tousled look.

Required tools:

  • Hairbrush
  • Hairband
  • Pins

5. Natural and Tousled

It has taken me years to figure out how to get the perfect curled hair that looks completely effortless AND doesn’t take me 45 minutes to achieve. I have finally mastered the look, but don’t hate me if it doesn’t work for you because really everyone’s hair is sooooo different. With that being said, I use a Hot Tools 1 1/4 inch curling iron, but use it with a wand technique. For my short/medium length people out there, I focus on only the top layer of my hair so its not so poofy. I hold the iron upside down with the tong open and wrap only 1-2 times away from my face for only about 5 seconds. I pick out random pieces around my head always curling outward, and finish by pinning one side behind my ear. I tousle and lift my hair at the roots to give a messy/thrown together look. For my people with longer hair I suggest using the same technique, but try wrapping your hair around the iron enough times so you have about an inch and a half of hair at the bottom that isn’t curled. This will make the curls look more beachy and relaxed rather than spiraled.

Required tools:

  • Curling iron/wand
  • Pin (optional)

 

This is the hair God gave me, so this is the hair I am familiar with styling. I have been styling my own hair as long as I can remember and I know it can be so frustrating to learn what works best for you. I suggest experimenting and not being afraid to try new things! (Like randomly deciding to chop off 6 inches LOL) 🙂
