This post has 6 hairstyles that are quick, easy and perfect for school. At my school, we have to have our hair tied back or at least off our face and ears, so you may have worked out that these are mostly up do’s. If you don’t understand my descriptions, there is a link to the place I found it. Let’s go!
The Cheating Fishtail
I call this hairstyle the ‘Cheating Fishtail’ because I think it looks like a loose fishtail braid, but doesn’t take half as long! (I say this because it takes me ages to do a real fishtail braid!).
First, put your hair to one side and split it in three. With the front section, twist it backwards from the top of my head all the way down. Hold the outside sections further forward than the middle one, then split the middle section in two and bring them around either section and gather them together at the front. Then split the newly made middle section and bring them around the front two. Repeat until you get as far down as you like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kboKKPSexnQ
The Twisted ‘Braid’
This is another mock fishtail braid. Start off by gathering the top section of your hair, securing it with an elastic and then flipping the ponytail over and through. Repeat this until the bottom, then secure with a bobble. The link to Ingrid Nilsen’s Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orZM9DrnRnw
This is also Ingrid's photo. I did this on my hair but I couldn't take the photo :-(
Half Up French Twist
For this, French twist your hair all the way down to your ear and then continue twisting until you get to the end. Do this with the other side of your hair. Then pull both twists to the back of your head and secure with a hair bobble. This keeps your hair out of your face, but still looks super cute.
French Braid Pony/BunFor the French Braid Pony, French braid your hair until you get to the middle of the back of your head, gather up the rest of your hair and secure it with an elastic.
For the bun, do the above instructions, then wrap your hair around and secure it with an elastic. Simple!
