Just because you might have a case of the Monday’s doesn’t mean your hair has to look like it. Hit the snooze button for an extra 10-minutes and skip the blow-drying, curling irons and hair straighteners. Instead, try some of these easy hairstyles that you can do in 5-minutes or even in the bathroom once you’ve arrived at work.
Half Back Hairstyle with Upside-Down Bun
A half-up ponytail is one of the simplest hairstyles for Monday morning but this one is even better. All you have to do is take the tail of your ponytail and twist it up into a knot-bun.
Pull two strands of hair back and secure them with bobby-pins in the same of a triangle. It will look like you spent 30 minutes on this clever design but it really only takes a few minutes.
Casual Twisted Ponytail
Simple divide your ponytail into two sections, twist one section and then wrap the other section around the twisted side. Easy as one-two-three!
If you’re looking for a casual hairstyle for Monday morning and you’re not the best braider, then try this simple look. Simply use an elastic to create a ponytail, then braid your hair 2-4 times, secure again and leave the rest of the ponytail loose.
Low Messy Bun
If you haven’t washed your hair since Saturday night, then try a low messy bun. Pull your hair back with your normal part and let the bun hang low and loose. Add a little volume at the crown to make it look like an intentionally messy hairstyle, not an unwashed last-minute choice.
Side-Swept with Bobby-Pin
If you haven’t really brushed or washed your hair and it’s Monday morning, you probably have some natural texture going on. Embrace it by sweeping your hair to one side, creating volume at the front and securing with a bobby-pin. If you have long hair then add a small braid or two.
Classic Headband Hairstyle
The easiest way to style your hair for work is to simply add a black headband. Push your hair back, creating volume and natural layers. It’s easy but also classic for the workplace.
