Mondays are all about sleeping an extra 10 minutes, not for worrying about how to style your hair for work! Ladies, forget the curling, straightening and blow-drying; we bring you three super quick and easy Monday morning hairstyles that you can create in 5 minutes or less!
1. Half-up Hairstyles – Bun and Ponytail
It might be an underrated version of the half-up ponytail, but the half-up top knot looks twice as fashionable! Just create a half-up ponytail and loop it into a bun at the crown of your head. Secure your trendy updo with a couple of bobby pins and you're ready to face the day, while looking your stylish best!
You can also take inspiration from J. Lo and go with a regular half-up ponytail instead! This hairstyle works best with straight and wavy shoulder-length to long hair and is perfect for rushed Monday mornings when you don't have time to shampoo your hair!
2. Fun with Bobby Pins
Who said you should only use bobby pins to secure loose stands of hair? With a dash of creativity and a little imagination, you can create interesting patterns using these humble hairpins.
Just pull back the face-framing sections of your hair and secure them with bobby pins, making interesting designs such as a triangle or a criss-cross pattern! You can also match the color of the pins with your outfit and use this underrated hair accessory to make a style statement!
3. Voluminous Low Ponytail
Spritz some high lift creation spray on the hair roots at the back of your head to give them an instant boost and create volume. Gather your hair at the nape of your neck and tie it into a tight ponytail using an elastic. Gently tug the section right above the elastic to loosen it and make it look voluminous. Et voilà – you have an on-trend work hairstyle in just a couple of minutes!
