There’s no dearth of hairstyles to take inspiration from; yet, when you’re running late for work in the morning, trying a new hairstyle is the last thing on your mind. We know you won’t compromise on a few extra minutes of sleep each day, so what you can do instead is bookmark these three super pretty hairstyles that take no longer than five minutes to create.
These hairstyles are perfect for college and office. If you have medium to long hair, these hairstyles are going to become your new favourite.
01. Sleek high ponytail

If you have long hair, a sleek high ponytail will look gorgeous on you. It’s easy, trendy and takes fewer efforts than you may think.
Step 01: If you’ve just washed your hair, don’t dry it off completely; apply the TIGI Bed Head Manipulator Styling Cream and comb your hair to get a sleek look.
Step 02: Hold the hair high on your head and secure with two hair ties.
Step 03: Take a small section of hair and cover the hair ties; secure this section under the ponytail using bobby pins.
02. Half-up bubble braid

Bubble braid is a celeb favourite and we can see why – it is stylish and can be achieved in a few simple steps. This half-up bubble braid is super easy to create.
Step 01: Use a wide-tooth comb to remove knots and tangles. Then, grab the top half section of your hair and secure with a hair tie.
Step 02: Depending on your hair length, keep adding more hair elastics leaving a gap of at least 2-3 inches.
Step 03: Once you’ve reached the end of the half ponytail, pull on the strands between each hair elastic to make the bubbles look fuller.
03. Low messy bun

When your hair is already a mess, why not make good use of it? Jokes apart, low messy hair bun is an effortlessly stylish updo that you can sport on days you have absolutely no time. This works better on second and third-day hair; remember: the messier the better.
Step 01: Start by spraying some dry shampoo or texturizing spray; we recommend the Dove Volume and Fullness Dry Shampoo. It will add volume to fine hair and make your bun look fuller.
Step 02: Tie a low loose ponytail, and twist the hair around the base of the ponytail. Don’t make it too tight.
Step 03: Secure the ends under the base using bobby pins.
