Point is, while we can’t always get what we want, we sure can ace chic hairstyles with these time-saving hairstyle hacks custom-made for lazy girls.
Hack #1 Turtleneck hair
If you’ve been snoozing away all morning and now have literally 2 minutes to do your hair, this hair hack will be your savior. Invest in turtlenecks for all weathers—sweatshirts, sweaters, turtleneck t-shirts, blazers et al. All you need to do now is take your hair and tuck it under your turtleneck. To keep your hair from untucking and escaping, tie a loose ponytail so that it stays put under the neck. Once you’ve tucked your locks under the neck, run your fingers through the hair on top for a messy look. And voila!
Hack #2 Wrap it in a scarf
If you have managed to wake up late on an important day and absolutely need to dress your tresses, here is how you can do it in under 5 minutes. Just wrap the scarf around your crown, knot it up on one side and intertwine your hair and scarf while braiding a messy side braid.
Hack #3 Tie it up in a messy side braid
Messy hair is in and so are the braids, so team the two together for a casual chic hairdo. Create a side parting and braid your hair starting from the temples and go downwards. A side braid tilted towards one side is both stylish and casual at the same time.
Hack # Go half way up
If have short hair then you don’t even have to bother working on your locks. Just focus on the crown and add some drama at the top—the rest will take care of itself. Take the hair above your ears, separate it, straighten it and pull it back into a half ponytail. Allow the rest of the hair to flow naturally. Tuck the half ponytail at the back of your crown with the help of a few pins and you are good to go.
Hack # Gather it into a messy bun
This one sounds just as simple as it is. All you need is to twist your hair into a high pony, lift it on one side and tuck it back into the bun under. Do this on each side and you have the messy bun of your dreams.
