Simple Yet Beautiful Hairstyle Ideas for Your Busy Schedule

Sometimes life gets busy and we fall into a hairstyle rut. We tend to have one signature hairstyle that we turn to when our schedule gets cramped. If you're bored with your go-to busy day hairstyle, here are a few ideas to jazz it up a little bit without taking too much time out of your day.


Braids are very versatile. They can be a hairstyle all their own, or they can be used to dress up your favorite style. It only takes a few minutes to create a Dutch braid across your front hairline to serve as a natural headband, or to braid a few strands before pulling up a ponytail to add a bit of interest. You can even braid a small strand to wrap around the base of a classic bun to give it a more intricate look. So get creative with your braids and experiment with different types of braids such as French braids, fishtail, or waterfall braids and you can create a very unique and trendy look in just a few minutes.


When a person with long hair is in a hurry a ponytail is usually the first hairstyle that comes to mind. And just a plain ponytail can get boring if you wear it day after day. Keep your look fresh by changing out accessories. Pretty barrettes, jeweled bobby pins, sparkly clip-on hair beads, and tiny braids are all ways that you can quickly give a ponytail a little more pizzazz.

Wear It Up

Whether you're simply in a hurry or having a really bad hair day and have no time to deal with it, there's always the option for a quick and easy updo. A low messy bun, a quick chignon, or a simple French twist can hide a myriad of hair styling woes in a flash. But being quick and easy doesn’t have to mean plain or boring. A pearl-studded hair comb or pins will give any updo a polished and elegant look.

Go Short

If your hair is always making you late because it seems to have a mind of its own, perhaps a shorter style would be easier to maintain. With less hair, it wouldn't take as long to blow dry or curl and so could help you get out the door faster. Layered pixies and asymmetrical bobs are very popular short styles for this season that offer wash-and-go ease.
