Today I’m sharing the best sorority rush hairstyles to get you through recruitment in style.

Sorority rush is a fun and exciting time — but it can also come with stress and worry. For instance, during rush, you always have to make sure you look your best, in order to make a good first impression.

Deciding on how to do your makeup, what outfits to wear, and what to pack in your bag are just some of the many things you will have to deal with when preparing for rush.

However, you won’t have to worry about your hair because this post will show you 15 of the best sorority hairstyles, so your hair will always look flawless during sorority rush.

1. Low Ponytail with Accessory

This is an absolutely gorgeous sorority rush hairstyle — it’s such a pretty take on your basic low ponytail.

Adding an accessory, such as this embellished headband, to a low ponytail hairstyle will make sure that your hair look stands out doing rush.

There are so many cute headpieces out there (a simple search on Amazon yields hundreds), so you’re sure to be able to find one to match your look.

2. Barrette

Recreate this hairstyle:

Barrettes were in style years ago and they are now starting to come back around. Sorority rush is the perfect time to break out your barrettes or buy some cute ones to add to your hair.

A barrette is the ideal way to spice up any old hairstyle — and it takes two seconds to add to your look.

There are so many cute barrettes that you can purchase that will also show off a little of your personality.

Using a barrette is also a great choice for rush because it will keep the hair out of your face.

3. Messy Updo w/ Headband

Recreate this hairstyle:

Headbands are also making a comeback, haven’t you heard?

You can purchase super cute headbands for so cheap and easily coordinate them with each of your rush outfits.

Another great benefit of this hairstyle is that you won’t have to worry about fixing your hair during rush. The headband keeps your whole style in place.

4. Curled Half Updo

Recreate this hairstyle:

If you want to wear your hair down during rush, the half updo is a cute way to style your hair.

Not only is this hairdo a great way to be able to style your hair while leaving it down, but also you can choose to add some curls to your hair to make the hairstyle even more fun.

You’ll need a curling iron to add curls — our all time favorite is this GHD one (the curls last for days on end!), but on a budget this one is good, too.

5. Wrap Around Ponytail

Recreate this hairstyle:

The wrap around ponytail is a fun way to style the classic ponytail look.

You can choose to either wear your ponytail low or high to find the perfect ponytail look for you. It also gets rid of the issue of having your hairband stick out in your hair.

Get this rush week hairstyle by wrapping a strand around your ponytail and then using a bobby pin to secure it on the underside of the pony.

6. High Updo

Fab French Braided Bun Updo [On Natural Hair]

If you are looking to do an updo for rush, this messy, high bun updo is perfect.

This works no matter what kind of hair you have and is easily styled, so you won’t have to worry about spending so much time on your hair while getting ready. Just twist your hair up and secure with pins. (This tutorial breaks down a similar style, too.)

This bun also looks super cute if you do the braid style seen above (which is fab for natural hair). If you want a messier look, you can also pull pieces of your hair to the front to hang around the sides of your face.

7. High Ponytail with Scrunchie Bow

Recreate this hairstyle:

Another hair accessory that has come back in style over the years is the scrunchie.

If you are looking for a more casual sorority rush hairstyle, using a scrunchie for a high ponytail is perfect and could not be easier.

It is super quick and easy. Also, you can add some personality to your hairstyle by picking out a special scrunchie — I’ve seen quite a few girls on my campus rock the ones with bows on them.

8. Braided Low Bun

Recreate this hairstyle:

Not only is a high bun a cute hairstyle, but the low bun is also super cute.

You can even spice up this look by adding braids in your hair, similar to the look seen above.

If you want to get even more glam, add a couple of statement hair clips like the ones seen above. They definitely make a statement.

9. Low Ponytail with Braid

For those looking to put their hair in a low ponytail, braids are also a great way to incorporate something new into the low ponytail hairstyles.

To get this look, braid a section starting at the top of your head and secure it halfway down with a clear elastic. Then pull your hair into a ponytail.

You can also choose to leave your hair natural, straight, or even add curls at it will look great with any outfit.

10. Half Updo with Braid

If you are someone that loves adding braids to your hair, they also look great with a half updo look!

The half updo with a braid hairstyle will add a little something extra to the normal half updo hairstyle if you are trying to make your hair stand out during rush.

11. Bun with Accessories

Recreate this hairstyle:

Buns are a really great hairstyle for rush, especially if your rush is outdoors because wearing a bun hairstyle will keep you cool if the weather is hot. (A must for schools in hot climates!)

A really awesome way to spice up your bun hairstyle is to add some accessories to your hair.

For example, these pearl hair pins just stick in to any updo — they’re an easy and fun accessory that will go with all of your outfits.

12. Straight Hair

Recreate this hairstyle:

If you have naturally curly hair and are looking to wear your hair down during rush, straightening it may be the way to go.

This will help you to make sure that your hair doesn’t frizz during rush and it is also a sleek hair look that works for people with short or long hair.

If you need a new straightener, this one comes extremely highly reviewed and is a favorite of every beauty influencer we know.

13. Low Ponytail with Bow

Recreate this hairstyle:

Bows are a super cute and fun accessory to add to your sorority rush hairstyle.

They look perfect with the low ponytail if that is one of the hairstyle looks you are going for. And if you have a preppy sense of style, a bow is a must.

This works for all hair types and you can find bows in several different colors or even designs to add to your look.

14. Curled Hair

Recreate this hairstyle:

If you have naturally straight hair, or even if you have wavy hair, you may want to curl your hair with a curling iron during rush because it is a cute and girly way to wear your hair down.

There are many different kinds of curling irons that you can choose from to get the perfect curled hair look that you want. This one is our current fave — as mentioned above, it makes your curls last for multiple days! Just dry shampoo and go.

You can also choose to curl your hair then let your hair settle to get a more wavy hair look which is also very pretty. This also works for people with long or short hair.

15. Low Bun

The low bun is another classic hairstyle that will work perfectly for rush.

If you want to get the messy bun look, this is a great way to do it. You can pull pieces of your hair to hang around your face to make this look like a flawless messy bun.

This look is almost effortless, so you won’t spend hours on your hair, making it a great hairstyle to add to your hair looks for rush.
