When I finally decided to chop my hair off and rock the cool-girl buzzcut I couldn’t get out of my head four years ago, I’d never felt more liberated. It was hot, angled my face nicely, and only required two minutes to style each morning. But like any shiny new thing, after a year, the high of the look began to wear off, and the lack of diversity (apart from a new design every few weeks) made me miss longer hair. My ever-present inner-hair chameleon was no longer satisfied, and that’s a tantrum I never win. Flash-forward to today, where my now thick, grown-out hair is begging for updos due to rising temps and that subtle boredom is kicking in again. Thanks to quarantine, I’ve been rocking the basic ponytail and messy bun just about every day for the last year. Needless to say, my chameleon isn’t happy.
But my inner sloth has something to say about it, too (yes, it’s a zoo in there). If you’re like me and have neither the time, attention span, or motivation to learn and execute a new ’do, then allow me to sprinkle a little (h)airy dust your way. I’ve kept all these hot-girl summer chic hairstyles under thirty seconds. Here are eight quick hairstyles that take your hair from basic to boo-yah — or whatever the cool kids are saying these days.
1. The Wedding-Worthy Ponytail
2. The Put-Together Messy Bun
3. Braids for Days
4. Chic Pony
6. Beachy Braids
