Have you ever had a scenario where you needed to look decent for a meeting within a short time for a client but with the added stress of not having much time on hand? This blog goes through different hairstyles that can be done in a jiffy. You don’t have to spend hours and hours in the salon to look your best. We have a few quick hairstyles that you can do at home when you don’t want to spend too much time.

Waterfall Braid

If you’re short on time but still want to look good, try a waterfall braid. This braid is quick and easy to do, and it looks great on all hair types. To do a waterfall braid, start by dividing your hair into three sections. Then, take the middle section and braid it down the back of your head. Next, take the left section and braid it over the middle braid. Finally, take the right section and braid it over the left braid. You can secure the braid with a hair tie or bobby pins, and you’re all set!


A ponytail is one of the quickest and easiest hairstyles when you are short on time. Simply gather your hair into a high ponytail, secure it with a hair tie, and voila! You have an instant hairstyle that looks chic and pulled together. If you want to add a bit of extra style to your ponytail, try adding a few loose waves with a curling iron or wrapping a strand of hair around the hair tie.

Messy Bun

A messy bun is quick and easy to do, and it can be styled to suit any occasion. To create a messy bun, simply gather your hair into a high ponytail and twist it into a bun. Don’t worry about making it too neat—the messy look is part of the appeal! Once you’ve secured the bun with some hair grips, you can then start to pull out some strands to frame your face. This will help to soften the look and stop it from appearing too severe. Finish off by spraying your hair with some texturising spray to give it some extra hold.

Dutch Braid

The Dutch braid is easy to do and only takes a few minutes. First, brush your hair back and divide it into three sections. Then, take the section in the back and cross it over the middle section. Next, take the front section and cross it over the middle section. Continue this pattern until you reach the end of your hair. Secure the braid with a hair tie and you’re done!

Hollywood Waves

This one takes a little longer, but is still quicker than a full shower and blowout! First, start with clean, dry hair. Next, take a large curling iron and curl your hair in large sections, starting at the roots and working your way down to the ends. Once your hair is fully curled, use your fingers to loosen the curls and create a wavy, tousled look. Finally, spray your hair with a light-hold hairspray to keep the waves in place. And there you have it—a quick and easy hairstyle that will make you look like a red carpet glamour queen!
