35 Best 5 Minute Hairstyles
There are so many busy mornings lately where I’m running late, but really need to deal with my frizzy hair and wish I had known some quick 5 minute hairstyles. So this weekend I went through the whole internet: Pinterest, Youtube, Instagram, and Google, finding the best 5 min hairstyles. There were so many!!! I didn’t know there was so much I could actually do with hair, even all the looks short hair can do! My hair will never be down on a bad hair day again for work or school for kids. I’m so glad there are step by step instructions on how to do all these beautiful but simple looks because their were some really pretty updos I found and thought would be hard, but were so easy with the tutorials.
I tried to get as many different types of styles as possible since people prefer braids or pony tails sometimes rather than half up looks, but also not everyone can do the same thing. Like, I’m bad at braiding but I can do messy buns with no heat and just wear with bangs. All the looks are so easy and good for gym, for church, for moms, or even for girls. I tried to get more styles for black women but it was so hard! You can do these if you have weave or braids though, and maybe some other types I’m not too familiar with. The looks are so versatile too! You can combine some looks or make them for your type of hair from medium, long, wet, straight, or curls. As long as you know how your hair works, you can make one of these quick and simple hairstyles work for you!
1. Easy Hairstyles to do Yourself
This look is such a pretty look for a quick style! All you have to do is curl big chunks of your hair. You don’t even have to section! Twist a front piece and pin! Now you’re ready to go from work to going out for the night or even to a wedding!
2. Hairstyle Tutorial : Half Crown Braid for Busy Mornings
The half crown braid will never go out of style! It is so easy and classic. You don’t have to know how to french braid! Just braid to front pieces and pin together. You can do this fresh out the shower when your hair is still wet, and go natural with the hair that’s down. Straight, wavy, or curls will all be complemented with the braids.
3. Quick and Easy Bridesmaid Hair
This was the updo I thought would be complicated but the step by step visuals really made it easy. This would be great for church whether you’re a mom or want to do it on your kid girls. Just braid two the two halves and pin them around in a cute shape. Quick and no heat needed.
4. Half Up Braids
Another version of the braid crown because she does it slightly different and has different tips and tricks. She also goes with a natural wavy look, like what you can do! It would really help for those mornings or days you’re just running late.
5. 5 Min Hairstyle for School or Work
What a cute alternative to the normal side fishtail braid, and it’s not even hard. Still the normal process for the fishtail braid, but with a few rubber bands to section it out. So easy and would be so quick if you’re good at fishtails. This could be your best friend if you have frizzy hair since it’ll be contained in a braid.
6. Simple Hairstyles for Medium Hair Step by Step
I remember seeing a friend do this with her hair all the time for school and thought it was the cutest thing. She does a cute half up version but you could do it with your whole hair too! It’s just so darling and cute. If you pair it with an athletic band you could wear it for the gym. It’ll be different but keep your hair in place.
7. Messy Buns Updo Tutorial
All this updo is your hair in a giant twist but it looks so elegant. You can do this for a wedding or even as relaxed and regular as a hairstyle for work. It may be hard with layers but if you spray and tease it well, all hairs should stay together!
8. For Church – Moms or Teens
It’s the cute hairstyle my friend from school would always do! This isn’t half up, it’s all up now! If you have a cute headband you want to show off or haven’t even worn (me), this is a great look to put it to use and not look out of fashion.
9. Cute Hair Bow Half UP for Girls
Why have I not tried this look before? It is so so cute and freakin’ easy. It’s just like tying shoelaces but with 2 pieces of your hair. It’s a much simpler version than that big hair bow version Lady Gaga made in style. All you have to do is get two front pieces, tie them into a bow at the back or wherever you want it to be, and pin it so it’s secure!
10. Natural Hair Messy Bun when Running Late
Wait, she thought the pictures were self-explanatory but I’m confused on how you tuck the whole bun into the headband? If you know, let me know because I think the updo is adorable and great for weekend mornings where I need to be on the go. Messy buns are my go to and now I can put to use those hair accessories I haven’t used.
11. Quick Hair Style for Wet Hair
A 2 minute messy bun look for wet hair in a 2 minute video! I need for after my showers! She gives a really good tip for buns in general: if it’s too tall, stretch it sideways so it’s flater. You don’t even have to worry about hair ties because she just used some bobby pins to keep it all in place.
