Mornings are never perfect, and when you find yourself rushing to get ready after sleeping through all three of your alarms, you know it’s going to be a rough morning. Your adrenaline is pumping, your clumsy side is coming on strong, and you are not having a good time. We get it, we have all been here. Unlike men, most women can’t simply roll out of bed, throw on some jeans, and head out the door. Makeup needs to be applied, the outfit needs to be picked out, and the hair needs to be done.

To make this morning even worse, let’s say you wake up to a bad hair day, meaning that you simply can’t run a brush through your locks and call it good-to-go. Doing anything to your hair that takes longer than five minutes is a no-go, but luckily there are quick and easy hairstyles to try when you are in a hurry.

At The Hair Company, we know what it is like waking up to a bad hair day. But waking up to a bad hair day on top of waking up late is a disaster. That is why we put together this guide to help you! Read this blog now, so that when you wake up and need a hairdo in a hurry, you are ready!

The Messy Bun

This is a hairstyle that every lady loves! It is quick, simple, and can be dressed up or dressed down. In case you have tried the messy bun numerous times and have failed, we are going to give you a step-by-step guide to help you nail it the next time you try.

  • Start by gathering your hair into a high ponytail (messy buns work best with long hair)
  • Twist your ponytail from roots to tips
  • As you twist, your hair will begin to kink, wrap your hair in that direction until all your hair is in a bun
  • Secure this bun with a hair tie and use bobby pins to style it differently

And voila! Your hair is in a beautiful messy bun.

Braided

There are many different types of braids you can do that will look cute, keep your hair tame, and can be done quickly. Whether you do a regular braid, French braid, or a fishtail braid, this is a cute look that is not difficult. Unfortunately, describing how to fishtail or French braid can get difficult, so check out this article from Cosmopolitan, which lists different braids and shows how to do them!

Ponytail

A ponytail doesn’t have to look lazy or like a last minute hairdo (even if it is). Style your ponytail so that it is flirty, fun, and cute! Use a teasing brush to tease the hair close to your roots, gather the hair in a high ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. You can pull out pieces to make it look messy or you can do a slick back style and add some product to your hair. There are multiple ways to do a ponytail.

These are only a few of the many easy and quick hairstyles you can do while in a hurry. Or you can always opt for the hat to cover up that bed-head. Either way, after a rough morning like this, be sure to schedule a relaxing hair salon service at The Hair Company! Contact us today.
