Let's face it, most of us are super busy living our lives; going to work, doing chores, going out with friends, seeing family. But let's be honest, we all wish we could wave a magic wand to achieve perfect hair looks every single day. Realistically though, keeping a number of quick hair looks for when you are low on time under your belt is REALLY useful. Here are some of them:

Half Bun

  • THE HALF-BUN: Take half of your hair from the crown and twist it in to a cute bun. Leave some strands out from the front for a messier look. This works with all hair lengths & textures which is why it's so easy.
  • THE STATEMENT HAIRBAND: Embellished hairbands are so trendy currently. You are sure to find one that you love in most clothing stores. Push your hair back with it and you are sure to make a statement without too much fuss. Wear it any other way!

  • HAIR WRAPPED PONYTAIL: Whisk your hair in to a low ponytail, take a small strand of hair, wrap it around your hairband so it is completely covered and secure with a bobby pin. Back comb the hair before the ponytail for an elegant look.

  • PINEAPPLE: Blessed with beautiful ringlets? Try this Rihanna-inspired look called 'pineappling': it involves tying your curls as close to your hairline as possible, basically resembling a pineapple. Fruitylicious.
  • LOW ROLLED UP DO: Begin with a loose, low ponytail and part your hair above the hair-tie. Pull your pony through into a topsy, repeat previous step into another topsy. Use your index fingers and wrap another topsy to create a roll. Continue to roll until you run out of ponytail and fasten with bobby pins under the roll.
  • PINNED BACK BANGS: Grab a section of hair from the front and begin back combing/teasing from the back. Once finished, tie it with an elastic band. Divide in to two sections and pull tight. Gently pull/tug at at the front to create a smoother bump. Curl a few strands of hair to frame your face.
  • CUTE ELASTIC PONY: Divide hair in to 2 sections from the top, tie with hairband. Take the hair and tie with another hairband. Keep tying hairbands on to the ponytail in equal sections. Fabulous.
  • SIMPLE BRAID: Nothing more to be said about this one: Brush your hair so it's neat from the front and tie it up in to a high or low ponytail. Plait the hair to the bottom and tie with an elastic. VOILA.
  • STRAIGHTENED HAIR STAYS STRAIGHT: Keep your hair straight and sleek until the next wash. Apply TRESemme's 7 day straight creme on damp hair then blow-dry and straighten. No need to re-straighten.
  • MIDDLE PARTED PONYTAIL: Part your hair from the middle. Tie hair in to a low pony tail. Elegant, classic, simple.

This year rumours of sharp bobs and angled cuts are in, “it’s going to be a real slice!” (10 points if you can guess which movie that quote is from).  Sometimes it can be daunting to go for something that is a real statement piece whether it be clothing, make up or of course hair.  Why not try the ‘Lob’ (long bob) it’s a short snip away from the strong sharp bobs above but isn’t too much of a change that you’ll lose your identity.

This months interesting hue is green – we’ve gone through the trends of unicorn hair, first it was silver then gold now green – perhaps with the change of weather another shade will rise to the top? Lets wait and see.  See our image of Kylie Jenner for an id
