4 Easy Hair Cheats When You’re in a Rush

Are you always in a rush? I am, especially when it comes to hair and makeup. Luckily, I've come up with four easy hair cheats to get me out the door in a flash without looking like a disheveled mess.

1. Bobby Pin Twists
Growing out your bangs? Limp, lifeless hair hanging in your face? Friends, let me introduce you to bobby pin twists. If your hair looks like a stringy, unfinished mess, just run a boar bristle brush through it to detangle first. Once smooth, grab a 1- to 1.5-inch lock of hair at the temple, twist it between your fingers, and then secure it with a bobby pin or two behind your ear or the crown of your head. You can create twists on one or both sides of the head, and it will instantly give you a boho-chic look.

2. High Bun
This style is almost too easy. Bend over and grab all of your hair at the crown of your head. Twist your hair around itself into a coil on the top of your head, and wrap a hair elastic around the base. Voilà! Done and done.

Pro Tip: When creating a great bun, dirty hair works best. Wait a day or two after washing so your hair will have more hold. If you really want to rock a high bun but already have freshly washed hair, spray a little hair spray or dry shampoo into the roots. This will create texture and make your hair easier to manipulate.

3. Dry Shampoo
If you have absolutely no time to wash your hair, apply dry shampoo to the oily areas, wait a few minutes while the dry shampoo absorbs the oil, and then brush out with your fingers or a brush. All the greasies will magically disappear and you can be on your way. Additionally, dry shampoo works wonders on fine, limp locks. Apply the product to the roots of dirty or freshly washed hair, massage in, and muss around with your fingers. It's pretty amazing how much volume you can create with dry shampoo alone!

4. Ponytail Tuck
This look might take you back to your grade school days, but it's still a simple, pretty style for harried days. Pull your hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck and secure loosely with a hair elastic, leaving room for one more twist. On that last twist of the elastic, pull your pony through. The result will be a lovely ponytail-bun hybrid that looks purposely tousled yet totally chic.
