Pretty and Easy Hairstyles for School
1. Rope Braid
This type of braid is the easiest, as it doesn’t require complicated plaiting. Just take a section of hair from your temples up to your crown, divide this into two sections, cross them over each other in a twist. Add more hair as you go along, and continue crossing these two sections until you reach the tips of your hair. Secure your hair with an elastic or hair tie, and you’re done!
2. Sleek, Low Ponytail
This low ponytail is one of our favorite lazy, easy hairstyles for school. Make it chic by parting your hair neatly at the center, gathering your hair on your nape using your hair brush, and tying it with a cute hair tie.
Editor’s tip: Nail simple but sleek hairstyles by making sure your hair is smooth to begin with. Wash your mane with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Shampoo. It has KERA10 Protein Complex that can penetrate your hair up to 10 layers deep to nourish it. It also gives your hair 10 salon benefits in one wash, and these include making your hair soft, smooth, and shiny, providing heat protection, combating frizz, and taming flyaways.
Complement your shampoo with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Serum Conditioner. Aside from KERA10 Protein Complex, it also has oleo serum for that extra dose of nourishment and moisture.
3. Ponytail With Bobby Pins
You can jazz up your ponytail by accessorizing your hair with metallic bobby pins. Just create a neat side part before tying your hair, then place the metallic bobby pins on one side of your hair. You can make X shapes with your bobby pins or position them randomly on your hair.
4. Bob With Headband
In a rush? Go for this easy hairstyle for school. Just brush your hair quickly, then tie a headband or a headscarf around your head, and you’ll be out the door stat!
5. Short Hair With Hair Clips
You can create fun hairstyles for school by mixing and matching hair clips. Be as creative as you like!
Editor’s tip: Whatever your hair length, make sure to protect it from hair fall and breakage. Use Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Hair Fall Defiance Ultra Conditioner. It has revolutionary fiber actives that work up to a cellular level to strengthen your hair and prevent hair fall.
6. Half-Up Space Buns for Curly Hair
This cute and quirky hairstyle adds character to your look! It’s also one of the easiest school hairstyles for short hair, so try this when you have a bob or a lob.
Editor’s tip: Finish this ‘do by spritzing TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Extend Hold Hairspray all over your hair. This hairspray helps your hairstyle stay in place for a long time, thanks to its humidity-resistant and fast-drying formula. It also doesn’t make your hair stiff and sticky, making it a great product to use to help you nail different hairstyles for school.
7. Headband Braid
Not only is this braided hairstyle super cute; it’s also practical because it keeps hair off your face. So, whether you’re busy with your science experiments in the laboratory or meticulously taking down notes in class, your hair won’t get in the way.
8. Headband Braid With Ponytail
You can create a headband braid on long, curly hair, too! To do this, part your hair on one side and start braiding from your hair part towards the side with more hair. Add more hair as you go along until your braid reaches ear level and just continue with a basic three-strand braid. Secure the ends of your braid with bobby pins or a clip. Tie the rest of your hair into a low ponytail, including the braided section. Remove the clip from the tips of your braid, unravel this section, and let it blend with the rest of your hair.
Editor’s tip: Curly hair is more prone to dryness and frizz, so use products that deeply nourish and moisturize your hair. Try Dove Nourishing Oil Care 1 Minute Serum Conditioner. It is infused with serum capsules that contain argan, coconut, almond, and sunflower seed oils, and vitamin E that deeply penetrate your hair to nourish it from within. It transforms rough and dry strands to smoother, softer, and more manageable hair.
9. French Braid Into Sleek Ponytail
Can’t decide between a braid and a ponytail? Try this simple hairstyle for a school girl. To do this, create a French braid from your crown up to your nape, then tie the rest of your hair into a ponytail using an elastic or hair tie. Wrap a small section of hair around the base of your ponytail and keep this in place with a bobby pin.
10. Half-up Top Knot for Long Hair
Showcase your long, beautiful hair while keeping hair away from your face with a cute top knot. A half-up top knot also looks chic even when worn messy, so don’t worry about making it look perfect.
Editor’s tip: Wash your hair with Sunsilk Strong & Long Shampoo, which has aloe vera and biotin that nourish hair and help make it strong as it grows. It also gives your hair a sweet, fruity scent, making your hair smell fresh and fragrant!
11. Bob Braids
Yes, even short hair can be braided! Just create two tiny braids on one side of your bob and secure them with bobby pins. Pressed for time? Twist instead of braiding these sections. The result is just as chic.
12. Half-Up Bun With Bangs
13. Half-Updo for Short Hair
If you’re not in the mood for a hair bun, a simple half updo secured by a hair clip is an equally stylish option. It also looks great on short hair with bangs.
14. Side Ponytail
Make a basic ponytail look dainty by putting it on the side. Then, wrap a small section of hair around your hair tie to make your side ponytail look sleek and chic.
15. Baby Bun
This low bun is a great option for medium-length hair. It keeps your hair from brushing your nape, which helps you feel presko on a hot and humid day.
With these easy hairstyles for school, you’ll look effortlessly chic as you go from one class to another. Which one is your favorite?
