5 Minute Hairstyles…That Look Like They Took Hours!

If you’re anything like me, you don’t have hours upon hours to fix your hair into the perfect hairstyle every single morning. Heck, it’s hard enough to make my locks look semi-decent – never mind perfect! What I do have though, is a maximum of 5 minutes to spend on taking my hair from total ‘bedhead freak’ to ‘classy chic’.

So, I’ve put together a list of my favourite hairstyles that can be done in 5 minutes or less – which means you’ll have a couple of extra minutes to enjoy your morning latte (or a few extra precious minutes to sleep in!).


When you’re running short on time, one of the best ways to fix your hair is to create some relaxed beach waves and a side fishtail. It looks super cute and natural, yet polished at the same time.
