Simple Hairstyles for you To Do in Minutes

It’s easier to style long hair because you have ore versatility. The simple hairstyles for long hair are endless. You can have some fun with braids, ponytails, buns and 1/2 updos. The more you get comfortable with “playing” with your hair, the more you will experiment with a variety of styles.


The easiest styles in the morning are usually braids and buns. If you’re not a good at braiding hair, you might not want to try braid styles at first. These ponytail and bun hairstyles are pretty for (pretty much) any occasion.

Style #1: Puffy Messy Hairstyle

This is a fun bun to create in your hair (or on someone else). This is such a fun style because it’s a cute twist on a normal messy bun. It’s just easy to create and you have this big puffy bun when you’re done. Every time I wear this style, someone comments on it!

Style #2: Easy Wrap Low Bun

This style is so cute and really fun to wear. You’ll have people stopping you asking you how you did it! What I love about this style is that you just take your long hair and wrap it as you go around the back of your head. This style is really a great for school and work. Cinch it into place with an elastic band and then if you want, use bobby pins for extra securing.

Style #3: Ribbon Wrapped Bun

This style is so pretty and so elegant. Just create a bun in your hair (or on someone). As you’ll see in the video, I like to do a wrap bun, but you can do it anyway you prefer. After you have your bun secured into place, take a ribbon and wrap it around the bun. Make a cute bow on top and you have your style!
