Let’s face it… we’ve all had those mornings that somehow just get away from us. You might hit the snooze button one too many times or maybe breakfast took a little bit longer to make than you planned. Whatever has you running short for time, these five easy second-day hairstyles will have you looking gorgeous even when you’re in a pinch!
- Bubble Braids
Bubble braids are the ‘it’ hairstyle right now. And the good news is, they’re actually easier to style on second-day hair. Start by tying your hair into a ponytail and adjust it to be as tight or relaxed as you prefer. Then take another hair elastic and tie it a couple of inches further down your first ponytail. Simply tease the space between each elastic to your liking and repeat until you reach the bottom of your hair.
- Looped Half Bun
Half-buns are a girl’s secret weapon when putting off a day of hair washing. First, separate the top half of your hair and tie it into a tight ponytail. Then twist your hair around the base of the elastic and secure it in place with either bobby pins or another elastic. If you want some extra volume or drama, you can also tease your loose hair for a fuller effect.
- Knotted Ponytail
Knotted ponytails are easy to pull off and look so chic! Just separate your hair right down the middle into two equal sections. Then take one section in each hand and crisscross them to create the outline of this unique shape. Find the opening with your fingers and thread one side through for a knotted look. You can secure the knot by tightly pulling each side and pinning them down.
- Face-Framing Twists
Twists are by far the most hassle-free option on this list. All they take is a couple of bobby pins and an extra minute! Grab small sections of your hair that frame your face on both sides – just make sure they’re even first. From there, simply twist them two your liking and pin them in place. For more an even more original take, you can also braid the strands of hair as well.
- Braided Ponytail
Braided ponytails might look complicated in photos, but they’re actually so easy to style on second-day hair! First, tie your hair back into a ponytail. Then take a small section of hair and wrap it around the elastic and secure it with a bobby pin. Create three equal sections of hair and start braiding them as you typically would. Continue until you reach the bottom of your hair and hold it all in place with an elastic and some hairspray!
