Read on to discover our favourite easy five-minute hairstyles that save time!

1. French Braid Updo

The french braid updo is a cute hairstyle that suits most face shapes. You can pull your hair into this style in five minutes. Apply a texturizing spray thoroughly through your hair and create a centre part. Next, create a french braid on each side from the forefront and all the way to your nape area. Now, proceed with the ordinary braids. And after you get two french braid pigtails, cloak them all over your head and use pins to secure them in place. That was super quick and easy, wasn’t it?

2. Half-Up, Half-Down With Curls

This is the easiest of all hairstyles. It looks perfect if you have natural curls. If your hair is straight, consider adding curls to it with a curling wand to achieve the best outcome. Plus, it works best with shoulder-length hair. If your hair is short, consider using Remy hair extensions from a reliable brand for extra length. 

We recommend Zala hair extensions as they’re made from 100% Remy human hair, look natural, and work perfectly with the half-up, half-down with curls style. After installing the extensions:

  1. Add curls to your hair with a curling iron.
  2. Take two portions of hair from the forefront and enfold them backward to achieve a classic half-up style.
  3. Use a few bobby pins for a stronghold, and you’re good to go!

3. Half-Up With Favorite Clip

This hairstyle looks elegant and gorgeous when you have fuller hair. You may want to use hair extensions for the perfect look with the half-up with your favourite clip. The best part? You can get this style in two minutes. Simply pull your hair back, secure it with your favourite clip or scrunchie, and that’s it!

4. Sleek Low Bun

The sleek low bun is a bit of an elegant style that looks perfect on almost everyone and any hair type. Simply take your entire hair and pull it into a bun at the nape of your neck. Tease the front area with your fingers to add some volume, and there you are – ready to go with a simple yet gorgeous hairdo.

5. Bedhead Waves

It’s no secret that bedhead waves look marvellous. You can achieve a lovely look by waving your hair with a flat iron. Start by braiding your hair into two sections. Next, press down along the braids with your flat iron, and then remove the braids. The resulting lived-in waves are sure to look awe-inspiring. Want to add more hold to your bedhead waves? Consider using your regular hairspray. 

6. Braided Half-Up, Half-Down

This style looks ultra-charming and beautiful. And it looks especially gorgeous with a bit of longer and voluminous hair. Want to sport this lovely hairdo? Start by creating a regular part; then take the portion on one side that you have to pin back and braid it from top to bottom. Use a bobby pin to hold it at the back of your head. Repeat the process with the second portion and pull the new braid through the first one before pinning it. 

7. Elegant Low Ponytail

The low ponytail is an elegant style, perfect for women with straight hair that’s a little bit on the longer side. If your hair is shorter, you may want to add length to it with a set of high-quality Remy human hair extensions. 

After putting the wefts in your hair, divide your locks into two equal portions and use a hair tie to hold the right side in place. Next, split the left side into three more portions, rotate each portion separately, and then tie them up with the right part you previously secured with a hair tie.
