Many times, for lack of time or in some cases, lack of imagination, most women tie a simple pony tail and rush off to whatever it is they rush off to. Some just leave their hair as is. But styling one’s hair should neither be as time consuming nor as intimidating as one makes it out to be. Today, we are presenting a list of very easy ways to do your hair. Try them with long or short hair and never have a bad hair day with these ideas!

1. Classic princess braid
Comb your hair back and pull a section of your hair from the right side and a section from the left. Braid them together at the back tightly and secure the little braid with a bobby pin or a thin elastic band. There you have it, easy, and beautiful hair in just a few seconds.
Quick tip: There really is no right or wrong way to use a bobby pin but it is better to use your bobby pin with the wavy side down if you are trying to tightly secure your hair.
2. The waterfall
Now that truly sounds intimidating but it really is one of the easy ways to do your hair. You can do this style in 2 ways. To make a waterfall on the side, partition your hair on the side. From the side of the larger partition, pull back a section of hair and use it to braid with perpendicular sections of hair starting at the front progressing backwards. Once you reach the partition line, complete the braid with the last used section of the hair and secure neatly with a bobby pin. The other way requires a little practice, but very little, mind you. Comb your hair backwards, and proceed from the right to the center like described earlier. Once you reach the center of your scalp at the back, temporarily secure the done part with a bobby pin and proceed to do the same on the other side. Once you reach the center, braid with both sections of hair like you did in the princess braid. Secure the end neatly with a thin elastic band. Et voila, the waterfall!
3. Secure hair with little side braids
Another quick and easy ways to do your hair is to secure it with side braids. Comb your hair back and make a neat little braid with one section of your hair and secure the braid at the back. You can make another braid just below the braid you already made. To make it look classy, use three such braids and secure them separately. Maybe curl the bottom part of the hair with a large round brush to make it bounce.
4. Just curl your hair
If you have short hair just falling on your neck, just curl your hair with a thin curling iron and pull back a small section and secure with a pin. It is elegant and looks neat even after several hours at office.
5. Pull up a clump and secure
If you have really short hair but you are tired of the look, just comb your hair back and pull up the center of your hair and secure with a thin bobby pin. Give the rest of the hair a bounce with a large round brush.
6. Double pony
If you have fine or thin hair and want to give it volume in less than a minute, comb your hair backwards and separate the top section (about 1/3rd of the total hair volume) of the hair and tie it in a ponytail. Curl the edge with a large round brush. Now tie the bottom section into a loose ponytail just underneath the top ponytail with a thin elastic band so as to hide the partition and curl the edges with a bigger round brush. You will love the volume and the bounce. This is not just one of the easy ways to do your hair but also a fantastic way to give it some much needed volume.
7. Braid and press
If you have straight long hair, spritz your hair and quickly braid it and press it with a straightening iron from top to bottom. Now, unbraid your hair and brush lightly. There you have it: easy and super fast little curls.
8. A little twist
If you are really late and have no time to do your hair, just pull a section of your hair back and twist it. Secure the section using a bobby pin. This is not only the easiest of all easy ways to do your hair, but it definitely looks great on straight long hair, short hair, or curly hair.
9. The messy knot made fashionable
This suits best of long hair. Just braid your hair and secure it an inch above the edge. Lift your braid up with your right hand. Put your left hand underneath and twist it around the left hand. Now, pull the braid through the circle and twist it around the knot and tuck it in. If your hair is really long, start the braid at the top so that the weight of the knot doesn’t tire the neck. If you start it at the nape of the neck, the knot will rest on the back of your neck. If you have thin hair, fluff up the braid before knotting it to give it additional volume.
With little imagination, you can make up your own easy ways to do your hair every morning for looking different and fashionable.
