When it comes to hairstyles for school, we need them to be quick and easy because nobody has a ton of time in the morning to create intricate and complicated hairstyles. The easier the better. The quicker the better. That’s my personal opinion.

I also think it’s great that you can dress this one up or dress it casual (like she is here with her Steelrs jersey – she’s a fan!).

This simple half up hairstyle is one that you don’t even have to do anything other than part the hair and add a hair elastic. It’s that kind of easy. No braiding required.
