Back to School Hairstyles for Busy Students

September 8, 2022by fadmin

Let’s be honest; one of the best parts of going back to school is showing off your fresh new hairstyle to your classmates. That being said, it can be hard to decide how to style your hair each morning – especially on those days when you’re running short on time. Luckily for you, we have plenty of recommendations that look more intricate than they actually are. From slicked-back locks to 90s-inspired braids, these back-to-school hairstyles deserve straight A’s.

Messy Space Buns

We’ve been championing space buns for a number of months now. This TikTok-inspired hairstyle is a quick and simple option for those wanting to channel the best of 90s fashion. Not only are they incredibly easy to pull off, but you can also tease your hair before pulling your buns into place for a more “messy” or lived-in look.

Mini Braids

Not sure what to do with your hair in between washes? Mini braids are the perfect solution for second-day hair. Start with small, face-framing braids and then add a couple more small braids evenly spaced on both sides of your head. For a truly blended look, you can also braid only the top half of your strands, leaving the rest to flow naturally.

Slicked Back

The latest trend circulating on TikTok is the “clean girl aesthetic.” On top of light and minimalist makeup, this ‘I just hopped out of the shower look’ is also achieved by pulling your hair back into either a sleek ponytail or bun with no hair falling out of place. To add even more of a 90s flare, you can try pulling your hair back with a claw clip.

Pull Through Braids

We just can’t get enough of braids! Not only do they keep your hair out of your face during the busy school day, but they also look incredibly chic. While these braids might look tricky, they’re actually not braids at all. This style is achieved by creating and pulling through several layering ponytails. It might take some practice, but this style is sure to become one of your favourites.


Hear us out; pigtails have come a long way since you probably last wore them. Whether you wear them high or low, braided or loose, straight or wavy, pigtails are anything but childish. This is a great hairstyle for framing your beautiful face. It also pairs incredibly well with those who part their hair in the middle.
