So...you had a burning-the-midnight-oil session last night and now you have just a few minutes before you get to look your best in class. Going in with bad hair is just not an option for someone as chic to you but you simply do not have the time to sit in front of the mirror and style your tresses. In trying times like this, you may want to pay attention to these quick hair styling tips that will keep you looking lovely even when you are seriously pressed for time.

A messy bun takes all of two minutes to put together. All you have to do is pile all your hair on top and wrap an elastic band around it a couple of times. Choose a few bobby pins that match the color of your hair and use them to shape your bun. If you want to make the bun a little messier, pull out a few ends and set the style in place with hairspray.

And in case you are wondering, you don’t really need to use actual chopsticks for this style. You can make do with special hair pins or even a couple of pencils.

As you can guess, you need to be good at French braiding for this hair style to work. But, the good news is, it’s a skill that is relatively easy to master. For this hairstyle you begin by parting your hair to the side and braid it across the hairline, using a clear band to secure it. The rest of the hair is meant to be left messy, giving you a very boho chic look.
4. The Messy up-do

This is a variation of the messy bun style we looked at earlier. After showering, spray an anti-frizz onto your hair to scrunch it up. You can also use a mousse product that gives you the same effect. Twist your hair into a French twist and stick a few ornate looking hair pins or clip. Allow a few strands of hair to fall on your face.
5. A Headband is All You Need

For this hair style, you begin by teasing the hair at the crown. Then, you pull all of it back into a low pony tail, leaving about half an inch strand out. Secure the pony tail with clear elastic. Finish off by wrapping the extra strand of hair around the clear elastic and secure it with a bobby pin.
