Get Ready Fast – 7 Quick and Easy Hairstyles


Woman styling her own hair

Every college girl has been there – after a late-night library session and only a few hours sleep, you wake up late with only a few minutes to throw something on and book it to class. With barely enough time to get dressed, not enough time for a shower, and bed head on top of that, what’s a stylish girl to do? Go to class with bad hair? Never!

Bookmark this page, because College Fashion has your solution. Here are seven fabulous and easy ways to do your hair when you’re pressed for time. With these easy hair ideas, your hair will look hot, and no one will ever know you slept in!

Get Rid of Greasy Hair

1. Get Rid of Grease

Beat oily “second day” hair with this easy trick: grab some baby powder if you’re light-haired or matte bronzer if you’re a brunette and apply it to your roots with a big fluffy makeup brush. (Or use dry shampoo.) This absorbs grease and makes your hair look fresh. Then just fix any stray strands with a flat iron, shake out your hair, and go.

Gossip Girl's Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) in a Red Headband

2. Slip on a Headband

For an elegant style that’s so Blair on Gossip Girl, smooth out your hair with a brush, then pull on a wide headband to cover up messier strands and look instantly polished. Try a shiny patent leather headband in an outfit-coordinating shade for a super-trendy look that’s very right-now.

Messy Bun Hairstyle

3. Do a Messy Bun

This is the basic go-to staple for most college girls because it takes two seconds. Gather your hair on top of your head and wrap an elastic band around 2-3 times. Next, shape the bun with a few bobby pins that match your hair color, pull out a few ends to make it messier, and finish with a spray of hairspray.

Easy hair ideas - Chopstick Hair Bun

4. Try Chopstick Hair

This is one of those easy hair ideas that only looks difficult.. it’s actually insanely easy to do. If you don’t know how to make a chopstick updo, check out this Youtube tutorial, or for another way to do it, this tutorial. You don’t need actual chopsticks for this look – special hair sticks or even a pencil will work in a pinch.

Serena Van Der Woodsen Chic Ponytail

5. Make a Chic Ponytail

If your hair is curly, use a little anti-frizz cream first. If you have straight locks, scrunch in curl cream to bring out some waves. Tease hair at the crown then pull into a low ponytail. Leave a ½ inch strand out and secure the ponytail with a clear elastic. Wrap the extra strand around the elastic and secure with a bobby pin.

Lauren Conrad (LC) With The Front Hair Poof Hairstyle

6. Do a Front Hair Poof

This popular hairstyle is a great way to hide bangs you might be growing out, and is also very simple to do. Just separate the section of hair from temple to temple, tease it with a fine-toothed comb and secure with two bobby pins in an X. If your hair won’t stay in the bobby pins, tease the section more or use four pins.

Matthew Williamson Inspired Sideways French Braid

7. French Braid Sideways

Inspired by Matthew Williamson, this style is best if you’re good at French braiding, but with practice anyone can do it. Part your hair to the side then French braid across your hairline, securing with a clear elastic. This look is boho chic so leave the rest of your hair messy. If you have natural waves, even better.

There you have it, the top 7 easy hairstyles for days when you don’t have time to spend on your hair. Let me know if you have any questions about any of the styles and as always, let me know what you think!

Which of these easy hair ideas is your favorite? Are there any that I missed? Leave your answers in the comments.

    Love the front poof… I do it all the time. The messy bun is of course super easy too!

    Thanks for sharing these tricks :)

    I do the front poof a lot too, although I just got sideswept bangs so I have been wearing those down a lot more. And yes, the messy bun is such a classic, haha! <3

    Don’t forget the knit beanie! Yeah, it’s a total Rumer Willis rip-off, but when you’ve got ten minutes to get out the door and your hair is starting to look dreadlocked, it works!

    And a tip (especially handy in winter), stick a dryer sheet in your knit hat before you put it on. It keeps you from looking like you stepped on a live wire when you take the hat off.

    February 25th, 2008 at 6:34 pm

    Ahh the knit beanie. I like your tip about the dryer sheet! The reason I never wear hats is just for that reason – the static and general hat hair issue. Might have to give them another shot now.

    March 20th, 2008 at 9:58 pm

    I totally miss long hair now. I mean I can totally use a hair band or braid it. but using chopsticks or messy buns are too fun! One thing i do love about the front poof is how you can be so much dressier in seconds. Love the post =)

    July 2nd, 2008 at 6:35 am

    I love all your suggestion and plan to use some soon.
    I have to ask though, for the first one, what would you suggest if we have red hair? since both baby powder and bronzer wouldn’t look right in my hair.

  7. 7
    July 16th, 2008 at 3:18 pm

    for red hair… maybe coral colored blush? it’s all about the powdery texture absorbing the oil. they also make dry shampoo!!
    ^a few examples from

    which works on any hair color!

    Don’t forget braiding your whole hair! That works the best when your hair is kinky and you don’t have much time. Try a dutch braid. It’s fun if you’re tired of french.

    oh to get rid of grease, u can rub some conditioner onto the roots of ur hair at ur scalp. this way, u don’t have to worry about it matching the color of ur hair (because conditioner is transparent=) )

  11. 11
    August 24th, 2008 at 4:12 pm

    Cindy – no way! Conditioner adds grease to your hair. You should never put it on your roots!!

  12. 12
    September 13th, 2008 at 6:34 am

    What also works for getting grease out is to use facial absobent papers. they r amazing! (for everything). They r great if ur out and its hot. u dont wanna mess up ur make up but ur face is oily. so what u do is take one of the papers and press them onto ur face. or in this case onto ur roots. i have black hair so as zephyr said that way u dont have to worry about the colour!

    A side pony tail (for longish hair), over one shoulder, bangs side swept and head band looks cute and is easy. Plus teasing the back of your head (the corwn) at the roots looks super cute with a cute pin or head band – anyways, cute ideas!

    one of my favorites is to do a front puff and pull half my hair up into a messy bun thingy…and straighten the remaining hair around my shoulders…it takes 5 mins or less and its awesome for second day greasy hair….totally makes you look like a bad ass haha..

  23. 23
    February 17th, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    lazygirl i am soooo trying that hairstyle! thanks! i have wavy extreamly poofy hair but it looks fabulous when straight, but i have to take FOREVER to make it perfect. so pulling it up with a front puff would look like i actually did something without actually doing much! i would still have to straighten it though, just not get every single strand of hair. :)

    I have really poofy, wavy hair. My favorite quick fix is really fat hot rollers, because they have the advantages of straightening and curling and take about 10 minutes. You let them heat up for about five minutes, throw them in really quick (takes me about 3) then leave them in for another 5 or so while you do some make-up or eat a bowl of cereal. Pull them out and run a brush through the curls and your hair is shiny, smooth and really feminine. Works best if you throw on something girly with it, sort of vintage.

    August 13th, 2009 at 6:09 pm

    I knooow this article is really old, but I also like to do a fishtail braid over one shoulder. Sorta like a side pony, but braided. It takes 5 seconds to fishtail braid, once you learn how, and it’s super cute!

    For curly hair that takes less than 5 minutes, I french braid (or you could do several braids all over) my hair at night. Then I just wake up, take out the braids, and run my fingers through the waves. Just hair spray and go! Sorta looks crimped at first, but they loosen up as the day goes on.

    Love the first three tips…using them together works great for me! Soak up the oil, put hair in a messy bun, and add a headband! Perfect for running late to class or lazy weekends :)

  37. 37
    September 12th, 2009 at 4:16 pm

    hey thanks for the tip ;)
    i like the number one, i always want a tip like that haha:D

    September 14th, 2009 at 2:29 pm

    Another quick and easy hairstyle I do is the Korean bun! Tutorials are on youtube, but basically you just gather your hair up and tie into a tight bun, twisting the ponytail 2-3 times. When that’s done and you feel like your head is about to explode from the tightness (haha), hold the ponytail using your other hand, making sure that your hand is securing it in place while you pull the bun upwards and then let it hang down close to your nape.

    The outcome is literally a loose bun, and just finish it off by pulling off some strands from the bun to frame your face. Hairspray and some bobby pins help to keep it in place. :)

    Love this post!

    September 24th, 2009 at 1:15 pm

    another good one is to twist your hair instead of french braid it… it take less time and still looks awesome. =) i do it a LOT.

    1. First brush your hair throughly then wet your hands and run wet hands through hair or drench brush in water then squeeze brush and run through hair untill it is damp now this look looks great with bangs or side bangs . Keep bangs down but grap hair from the sides of head so that it is half up . Push hair up a little bit so that there’s a bump . Pin it with two bobby pins then spray your bump with hairspray . Now straighten the rest of hair not in pump and straighten bangs . Voila !

    November 25th, 2010 at 5:25 pm

    What about regular braids and ponytails? :/

    Also, the reason people get greasy hair a day or so after washing is because they wash it too MUCH. This is actually one reason you’re actually SUPPOSED to put conditioner on your roots: to help prevent your hair from producing grease because it’s too dry (shampoo strips the oils from your hair and conditioner “replaces” them; though it’s better to not use shampoo, since it’s actually a detergent). I wash my hair once a week with either my shampoo bar or Mane ‘n Tail, sometimes not even, and it hardly ever gets to the point of actually looking greasy – when it does I just pull my hair up in a ponytail (I use scrunchies! :D), then shampoo that night.

    This won’t work for everyone, but I have a fairly foolproof way of making sure my hair’s easily brushed in the morning. I always braid my hair before bed (unless I’ve had a shower); when you take out the braids in the morning, it takes seconds to brush your hair out. And I have thick, coarse hair that’s broken combs and brushes before!

    Also it gets greasy over night, so I don’t really want any tips that include having to sleep with a style in.

    I am in year 7 and going to my friends party on Saturday and looking for a great and really quick hairstyle I could use. Not the messy bun coz that usually goes wrong. I have shoulder length hair so it is quite hard to get descent hair.

    Mim, do you have bangs/ a fringe?

    A girl in my writing course wore her hair super cute just the other day, but I don’t think it could work with a fringe. Basically, she pulled the hair from the top of her head back over her head and – instead of making a half ponytail – she braided it! Her hair’s around shoulder-length, maybe a bit longer though, so it might depend on how long your neck is…

    It looks SUPER cute though, and isn’t all that hard or slow to do if you’re used to braiding your own hair.

    I have tried dozens of different conditioners but the Hydrate Conditioner from Shielo Hair succeeds them all. I have found that many conditioners can leave your hair looking a little greasy and worn down, especially if you have thin hair like me. However, after using the Hydrate Vibrancy Conditioner I feel as though I have just stepped out of a hair salon to get my hair professionally treated. It always leaves my hair with more body & shine and it smells great too! You can truely tell the difference after using it just one time.

    I do the messy bun, with a head band often, but I’m getting sick of the same old hairstyles every day.
    I really like the side braid but I’m not too good at doing them.

    I noticed a lot of people have curly hair and need ideas. I happen to have naturally curly hair as well, and I recently found this amazing website that is dedicated to wavy, and naturally curly haired people. It is a great place to find out new hairstyles, hair care routines, and even product reviews. You all should really check it out if you have questions about curly hair. It is Great website. you will love it!

    Wow…thanks for the great post!! =D
    Additional styles:
    Half ponytail: use a clip or an elastic
    2 Low pigtails: great with a headband!
    You can do a little braid on the side of your head and straighten the rest of your hair. (or waves!!) Looks really cute!
    French twist:
    Easy way: 1) divide hair into 2 sections 2) twist both sections inwards 3) tie up
    Hard way: 1) low, loose ponytail 2) make a hole in your hair above the elastic 3) stick hair in and pull down
    Good luck guys! :)

    To Yenny and Charley.x,

    Yenny, just pull your hair up into a high pony tail then wrap the tail around the hair elastic and secure it with bobby pins then spray with hair spray.

    Charley.x, I recommend clear dry shampoo for your hair or just use baby powder like the article says, only you need to make sure you brush it out well and blend it out so your hair won’t look gray.

    Hey! loveeed your post, but I have a couple of questions. For the fist tip, I have black hair so what should I use? Also, my hair is extremely frizzy and I can’t afford to use hair gel everyday because it’s not good for my hair, my hair is really weak and thin and seems to hate me lol. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  104. 104
    July 18th, 2011 at 1:03 pm

    These are great tips. Do you have any advice for shorter hair styles (chin to shoulder length). I’ve always had long hair and recently cut it off. I’ve been looking for fun or practical ways to wear my hair (especially in the summer) while it grows out again, but usually end up pinning it up with bobby pins. I’d really appreciate any help or ideas from your experience as a fashion blogger. Thanks!!

    October 16th, 2011 at 12:47 am

    if u have side bangs leave it at the front and make a high puff if ur face is oval and a small puff if ur face is round.U can also make a side puff ,then tie a ponytail at the side very loosely.If u dont have side bangs then u can take out ur long hair too.But dont forget to pin the hair at the back of ur ears if u r taking out long hair.If u have long hair then u can do a middle partition,take out some hair from both sides and then roll the hair and pin it,then leave ur hair.Anyone will look lovely in this hairstyle.

    I agree with whoever said the side ponytail, and also you can make a really small braid through which ever side of your head the side pony will be on and then put it in the side pony and undo the part of the braid under the ponytail. Makes the look even cuter.

    April 13th, 2012 at 7:53 am

    omg i have long not 2 thick but not 2 thin hair and my aunty bought me a hair curler 4 my birthday and i tried it a few time now and it just wont work it probaly is a cheap 1 but it should still work right?
    and my hair looks good curled so when i want it curly i have to plait it the night before! oh and on tv i saw this thing call in-styler and its really cool it does ringlets, curl,straitens,and if you have really out of control hair fixes it! im thinking about getting that cos it only $14.99 and if you buy 1 you get 1 FREE! so im thinking about that but if you know anything about my curler it would be helpful cos i dont want it to go to waste!

    ps. it say on the handle ’38mm instant heat ceramic’ if that helps!

    Another idea for day old hair, or what i call my “Study head” I like to do a sock/doughnut bun the grease from your hair helps give a bit of texture, or depending on your hair type, a sleek look. You can do the bun two ways:
    a) Pull hair into ponytail (the pony will be where the centre of your bun is, so place it carefully!) and take a strand of hair roll it (around your fingers or anyway that you prefer) then pin it at the centre, you can back pin it to hide it. Do this to the rest of your hair and adjust as needed.

    b) The other way is to pull it into a ponytail, then taking a sock, (Cleaned thoroughly) cut off the toe and turn it inside out, then roll the sock starting at the edge you cut to avoid fluffies falling into your hair, then taking the tip of your ponytail wrap it around the sock, and begin rolling your hair with it, just like you did with the sock, it will look a bit odd at first, but you’ll be fine if you do it right. :)

    I have really, really curly fuzzy hair. I also live in a really humid place. Does anybody have any suggestions about what I can do or put in it to try and control it. I just want some quick, easy and attractive styles that will not look fuzzy. My hair is also very thick. ATM all I can really do is plait it to one side, but the top still goes fuzzy. PLEASE HELP!!!

  155. 155
    December 2nd, 2012 at 12:43 am

    MimaK, I also have curly, thick, frizzy hair, and I live in a very humid place as well. The first thing I can suggest is to stop washing your hair! Curly hair is naturally very dry, so washing it all the time strips your hair of its natural oils. I haven’t washed my hair in a while, and its finally starting to get greasy. Just use conditioners when you shower. Next, (if you don’t this) air-dry your hair instead of blow-drying it, and if you straighten it a lot, make sure you have really good hair protection, and use lots of moisturizers. I don’t put a lot of product in my hair, but if I had to suggest one, it would be John Freida’s Frizz-Ease Flawless Finishing Creme. It’s the one that says step 5 on it. It really does wonders for my hair. Oh, and I also suggest sleeping on a silk or satin pillowcase! I hope this helps!

    Thank you for the Braid reminder. Regular Braids can be used anywhere on the head. I did a little one on the side of my head while at the computer without even looking just to see if I could still do it. Now I have to buy those tiny little elastic bands again that I used to have. or the covered glittery ones to make an extended “X” pattern on the end.
