3 everyday hairstyles that take 30 seconds to do

If you’ve barely got time to brush your hair in the mornings but still want to look stylish, try our super-quick style tricks.

Most of us will do anything for a few more minutes in bed – including stepping out with the same hairstyle as the day before. So that’s basically brushed, then, isn’t it?

If you want to mix it up with minimal effort, whether that be up or down, we have three easy hairstyle ideas that will take you mere seconds to achieve…

Switch your fringe

Wave hello to the beachy look


Switch your fringe

If you play your fringe just right, it’s the most versatile everyday hair change you can make. Ask your hairdresser for a soft, choppy fringe that brushes the brow line.

Sweep it to one side for a casual look, wear it straight to appear put-together – even on the school run! ¬¬– or backcomb your fringe and pin it back into a quiff to add a glam yet modern twist to a party outfit.

We recommend: using a thickening spray such as Pantene Pro-V Perfect Volume Lightweight Hairspray RRP £2.99, which helps gives even fine hair luscious body and creates gentle movement around the face, which will help balance out your fringe.

Power up your ponytail

It’s versatile and elegant – a sleek ponytail can easily take you from the office boardroom to a glitzy gala event. The current on-trend ponytail position is low, gathered at the nape of your neck. Make it look super slick by going for a low side parting, and take an inch-width of hair from the ponytail, wrap it around your hair band and pin in place for a polished look.

If you’re looking for a more practical hairstyle that keeps your tresses out of your face, but still need some additional va-va-voom in your life, you can also pin your long hair up for an everyday bounce. To keep it chic, fasten your hair into a high ponytail and comb it using products to tame any fly-aways. To complete the look, wrap a section of hair around the hair elastic to hide it. Simple, yet super effective.

We recommend: that for a perfectly sleek finish, make sure you curb fly-aways around the hairline with a smoothing product, such as Pantene Pro-V Repair and Protect Dry Oil RRP £6.99.

Wave hello to the beachy look

Tousled waves are a gorgeous and easy-peasy way to add casual movement to your style. Sleep with your hair braided and then in the morning spritz it with Aussie Miracle Beach Waves Spray RRP £4.99, scrunching your hair as you spritz. You can also achieve an equally effective and natural result using a robe belt or soft rollers to braid your hair. An easy hairstyle you can do yourself that’s bound to uplift your mood. Let’s go, curls!

We recommend: your hair needs to be in great condition to pull off waves without looking messy, so keep it nourished with Aussie Beach Mate Shampoo and Conditioner RRP £5.99, plus, once a week, use the range’s Aussie Three Minute Miracle Reconstructor Treatment RRP £4.99, to make your hair manageable and full of shine.
