If you’re in the mood for anything too intricate this quick hairstyle is for you. To create this look, divide your hair into a top and bottom section. Tie the top section into a ponytail with a think elastic band or a colourful scrunchie for an extra girl touch. Let the bottom section fall into its natural position, and you’re good to go!

 

2. Side-swept hair

This 5-minute hairstyle is probably the easiest of them all but it oozes style. It’s great on short or long hair, and creates a super chic, ‘put-together’ look. All you need to do is sweep your hair to one side and use some simple bobby pins to hold it in place. It’s as simple as that!

For some added shine, finish off the look with a quick spritz of the TONI&GUY Finishing Shine Spray.

Want to spice up your ponytail? The multi-banded quick hairstyle is exactly what it sounds like. A simple ponytail (as high or low as you like) with a few hair bands down the length of the ponytail. If you want to zhoosh it up a bit, wrap pieces of hair around each hairband to hide it.

 

4. Pineapple

An oldie, but a goodie! The pineapple is a super cute hairstyle that no one will think took you 5-minutes… Pull your curls towards the crown of your head and pin your hair in place, allowing your curls to drape forward. You can also create the look with a pretty headscarf or a wide micro-fibre headband to gently lift curls from the face.

Keep your curls healthy and your pineapple looking ‘fresh’ with the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie.

 

5. Classic bun

Another fan fave 5-minute hairstyle is a quick classic bun. This look can be dressed up by leaving some soft wispy strands in the front of your face. OR, you can tug on some larger pieces of the bun for a more casual vibe. Literally all that’s needed are a few bobby pins or a hairband to keep hair in the ‘bun’ form.

If you have very straight hair, prep your hair with the TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray to give your messy bun some added texture.
