An average woman spends about 55 minutes per day styling her hair and applying makeup. But sometimes there’s no time to go through this routine and you need a quick, stylish hairdo instead of a complex one.

For these cases, 5 Fun Facts gathered 13 hairstyles for you that are quick and easy to do but are still beautiful and elegant. Save this list to your bookmarks as it might help spare you a lot of time and energy!

1. Ponytail with a twist

  • Gather your hair into a low ponytail but do not secure it with an elastic. Make sure your ponytail is slightly to the right from the center of your head.
  • Twist the base of your ponytail clockwise.
  • Use bobby pins to secure the twist from both sides.

2. Super easy one-minute-bun

  • Gather your hair into a high ponytail.
  • Twist your ponytail clockwise.
  • Secure the hair with a rubber band. Use bobby pins if necessary.
  • Alternatively, you can use a hair stick instead of a rubber band.

3. Hair bow

  • Pick up thin strips of hair from both sides of your head and put them to the side. If you have short hair, pin them up with 2 hair clips so they don’t get in your way.
  • Put the remaining hair into a low ponytail. Make it a little bit loose.
  • Select a small string of hair from the ponytail and braid it into a small braid (about 3 inches). Secure the braid with a small rubber band.
  • Now you need to insert the braid into the ponytail. For this, stick your index finger into the back of your ponytail, right on top of the elastic band, and pull the braid back down, forming a loop.
  • Grab one of the hair strips that you put aside earlier, fold it into a semicircle (it should look like one side of a bow) and pull it halfway through the braid loop.
  • Repeat the same thing with the other side.
  • Pull down the braid to tighten up the bow. You can remove the elastic band from the braid now. Secure your bow with the bobby pins if needed.

4. Quick twist

  • Separate your hair into 3 identical sections and tie up the middle one into a low ponytail.
  • Pick up one of the remaining sections of hair, twist it and roll it up around your ponytail. You need to do this only once. Pull the twist through the elastic band combining it with the ponytail.
  • Do the same thing with the other side.
  • Secure with bobby pins if needed.

5. The knot

  • Separate your hair into 2 sections, one of them on top, the other one on the bottom. Tie them up with an elastic band, forming 2 ponytails (one above the other).
  • Make a hole above the lower ponytail and pull the upper one through it. Now put this pulled-through ponytail aside, so it stays out of your way.
  • Make a hole above the upper ponytail and pull the lower one through it. Make sure that you pull it in the opposite direction of the first one, forming a knot.

6. High bun with a bow

  • Brush your hair into a high ponytail. Tie it up with an elastic band, but on the last wrap pull the hair only halfway through, forming a loop.
  • Take small sections of hair from the loop and pin them down against your head in a random order, forming a messy bun. Make sure to hide the elastic band with your hair.
  • Divide a small string of hair from the remaining end of your ponytail and clip it away. Tie the remaining part of the section with a rubber band.
  • Divide the ponytail into 2 equal sections. Take one of them and roll it up against itself, forming half of a bow. Secure the loop with bobby pins.
  • Repeat with the second section.
  • Take the string of hair that you put aside earlier, lie it down and wrap it around the loops so it looks like the heart of the bow. Pin it down with a bobby pin.
  • Use hairspray to fix the bow.

7 & 8. French Braid, Low Bun

  • Part your hair to one side, depending on which side you want your braid on (it will be placed on the side with more hair).
  • Pick up 3 small sections on top of the section with more hair and braid a French braid all the way down to your ear, then continue with a regular braid. Loosen up the edges of the braid in order to give it more volume.
  • Pick up the remaining hair and tie it up with an elastic band, adding the braid into the ponytail. You can now unbraid it.
  • Twist the ponytail into a bun and secure it with bobby pins.

Note: You can replace a French braid with a simple twist braid, the result will still be impressive.

9. Heart braid, perfect for a date

  • Straighten up your hair. From above of your ear grab a section of hair and separate it into 3 equal sections.
  • Make a regular braid that is about 6 inches in length. Secure it with the rubber band.
  • Pick up another section of hair about 2 inches far from the first braid. The amount of hair in this section should be the same as in the first braid. Make another braid, similar to the first one.
  • To form a heart, take the first braid, press it against your hair, and twist it clockwise, forming half of a heart. When it is in place, secure it with bobby pins.
  • Repeat with the second braid, this time twisting it counterclockwise.
  • Tie up the ends of the heart with a rubber band.
  • Remove the previous elastic bands that you used to secure the braids and untie the braids up to the elastic that “closes” the heart.

10. Braided headband

  • Your braid will begin from the section behind your left ear. Pick up a string of your hair from there and make a regular braid.
  • Loosen up the edges of the braid to give it more volume. Tie up the braid with an elastic band.
  • Lay the braid down across your head, forming a headband.
  • Pin it up with bobby pins.

Note: this hairstyle looks perfect on any length of hair, even on short ones.

11. 2 braid twist

  • Divide your hair into 2 sections, one on top of the other.
  • Take the top section of your hair and braid it into a regular braid. Secure with an elastic.
  • Do the same thing with the bottom section of your hair, forming 2 braids, one on top of the other
  • Roll the bottom braid up, forming a bun. Secure it with bobby pins.
  • Wrap the upper braid around the bun. Secure it with bobby pins.

12. Flipped ponytails

  • Divide your hair into 3 sections one below the other, with the top one from around the temples; the middle one — at the ear level; the bottom one — with the rest of your hair. Tie them up, creating 3 ponytails.
  • Flip each ponytail over itself. Start with the top one. Make a hole above the ponytail close to the elastic band and flip the ponytail up over this hole. Tighten up the elastic.
  • Repeat with the middle ponytail, but this time tuck the top ponytail into the hole before tightening up the elastic.
  • Repeat once again with the remaining ponytail, also tucking up the top ponytails into the hole and tightening up the elastic. You can now roll your hair up into a bun or leave it as a ponytail.

13. Butterfly

  • Pick up small strings of hair next to your temples from both sides of your head. Tie them up into a ponytail using a small elastic that’s the same color as your hair.
  • Divide your ponytail into 2 identical parts and pick one of them up. Flip that part over the string of the original ponytail, forming a loop.
  • Put aside the first string and repeat with the second one. Adjust the loops to the size that you like and tie the strings into a ponytail.
  • Pick up small strings of hair from both sides of your head below the ones that you picked up in the first step. You need to tie them up into another ponytail, but first you need to pull each string through the loops of your butterfly — the right string goes through the right loop, the left string through the left loop. Tie the strings up with a rubber band.
  • Repeat the second and the third steps, forming the bottom of the butterfly — divide your ponytail into 2 identical parts and pick one of them up. Flip that part over the string of the second ponytail, forming a loop.
  • Put aside the first string and repeat with the second one. Adjust the loops to the size that you like and tie the strings into a ponytail.
