We have gathered several quick and easy hairstyles that would instantly show off your amazing personality.

    Pretty Messy Knot

    We found this truly charming way to gather up your unruly curls. We quote, “messy-on-purpose.”

    Do it yourself in 6 easy steps!

    1. Gather all of your curly mane and then twist it up to form a messy knotted bun.
    2. Pull the strands of hair into a shape you think is flattering.
    3. Then pin random hairs with Bobby pins to make it look more unintentional.
    4. Loosen a few of your baby hairs to frame the face and to soften the look.
    5. Just keep pinning until you achieved your desired silhouette.
    6. Lock the look with some hairspray.

    Pinned Pixie

    1. Make a deep side part.
    2. Blow dry hair towards the direction of the hair.
    3. Pin a barette or clip of your choice and then mist some hairspray to hold.

    Sock Bun

    If you are wondering why some girls’ hair buns are bigger, it is not because they have extremely long hair. The secret here is within the name actually. ;) Trust me, this one is very stylish at the office. Although his requires more time and expertise than the rest of the hairstyles on this list.

    You can use foam as alternative for this one. But if you want to go frugal, an old sock would do. Start by cutting the toe. Now roll the sock to form a donut shape.

    1. Add some texture to your hair.
    2. If you prefer to do this with bangs, you may or if you want to add slight volume to your crown similar to the photo above.
    3. Gather hair in a high ponytail.
    4. Place the foam or sock on the base of the ponytail.
    5. Spread the ponytail over the sock or foam and then secure with a thin elastic band, creating the shape of a donut.
    6. Braid or twist the ends of the ponytail and then wind it around the bun.
    7. Secure with bobby pins, lock with hairspray and you are done!
