6 Quick Ways to Style Your Hair Before Class

When you sleep through your alarm or are rushing to class, your hairstyle may be the last thing on your mind. But you can still achieve a cute, trendy style when you’re strapped for time. From effortless braids to game-changing hair accessories, find six quick and easy ways to style your hair for school in 10 minutes or less, below. 

Mohawk Dutch

Take a typical half-up style from cute to spunky by braiding the hair at the top of your head before pulling it up. Any style of braid will work, but here @katlynscorner opts for a dainty dutch braid. 

Grab-and-Go Silk Headband 

For days when you’re rushing out the door, a silk headband is all you need to make it look like you put in some effort. Quickly spritz on a leave-in conditioner like the Carol’s Daughter Monoi Multi-Styling Milk, slip on the headband and you’re good to go!

Rainbow Hair Clips

Adding a few colorful, mini butterfly clips to your ’do takes just seconds and can completely transform your look from ordinary to super playful. We love how @biankeyyy creates a faux-headband look using her clips. 

5-Minute Romantic Braids

Our favorite hairstyles are the ones that look super intricate, but actually take only five minutes to complete. In this easy-to-follow tutorial by @jeanne.dordain, she braids a golden ribbon into two sections of hair at the nape of her neck, then ties them across her head for an effortless, braided headband look.

Bubble Pony

Get a trendy Y2K-inspired look in a flash by tying extra elastics around your hair to get a cool bubble effect.

Half-Up Space Buns

It’s safe to say that space buns aren’t going out of style anytime soon. Try wearing them in a new way by twisting two sections of hair on the top of your head into buns and leaving the rest of your hair down.
