You jump online to find a cute hairstyle but the complicated braids; intricate up-do’s are more than you bargained for. If you’re in a rush, simply don’t have those hairstyling hands or the outfit and style calls for it – there are plenty of five minute hairstyles to try that look just as chic (if not more) than those complicated braids.
Twisted-Ponytail Takes 5 Minutes
It doesn’t get simpler or cuter than a ponytail. Simply divide the ponytail in two equal sections, twist one section and wrap it around the around section.
A Twisted Scarf-Updo
This look might take some bobby pins so we understand if it’s more than you asked for. All you have to do is position the scarf or headband and twist your hair around it section by section (about 1 inch sections). You might want to secure with bobby pins and hairspray. Bonus: when you take your hair down you’ll have flawless bouncy curls.
Tease and Tie
This simple might take some time to perfect but once you do it will be a few minutes and you’re done. Tease your crown; pull back a section on both sides and tie (or pin).
Sleek Parted Ponytail
The sleek look is definitely on trend after the SS14 fashion shows. Simply create sleek and shiny hair with a flat iron and product, make a straight part (down the middle or off center) and secure.
Braid Wrapped Ponytail
We know we said no difficult braids but you just might think this one is on that thin line between complete in 5-minutes and never-going-to-happen. Check out the step-by-step tutorial but you simply create a braid, ponytail and combine.
Simple Side-Swept Hair
This hairstyle can be as simple or as intricate as you want. You see it on the red carpet all the time with lots of curls and volume. For a 5-minute hairstyle you can simplify this look but creating a dramatic side-part and throw in some texture with loose curls if you want, but the simple fresh part will be enough to spice up your look and hair.
Low Sock Bun
The sock bun is one of the best-loved simple hairstyles. Once you perfect this simple look, it’ll be a go-to. The sock bun is usually partnered with the topknot but for a simpler and more casual look you could lower that sock bun to the nape of your neck.
