Cute, Quick & Easy Back To School Hairstyle Ideas from MATRIX

Save yourself time in the morning with these quick and easy back to school hairstyles

Soft Waves Back To School Hairstyle

NEW YORK--()--School is starting back up again, and you barely have time for breakfast in the morning, let alone figure out what to do about your hairstyle. That’s ok. If you can pass algebra, you’ve got this! Here’s a roundup of quick and easy back to school hairstyles that will save you time and save your sanity.

Soft Waves

If you do little more than control your frizz in the morning, you’re way ahead of the game. Prep damp hair with a lightweight styling crème, then grab an extra-large round brush. Place the concentrator nozzle on your blow dryer, divide your hair into large sections and stretch and smooth each one with the brush and dryer. Your locks will look polished, and your blowout should last several days. If need be, you can refresh your scalp with a few spritzes of dry shampoo on day two or three.

Twist-Out Curls

Spend an evening perfecting your naturally curly hair and the rest of the week will be a breeze. Use a butter-infused hair cream to nourish and moisturize your twists, wrap your set in a soft scarf and head to bed. In the morning, gently untwist each section. Your curls will be bouncy and touchable.

Half-Up Baby Bun

If your bangs are driving you mad, try this cute hairstyle. Create a part that goes around your head from temple to temple, gather the top section into a ponytail far forward on your head, then wind the tail into a messy bun and pin it in place. If your hair is fine or silky, “rough it up” a bit with a hair texturizing spray before styling to help keep the bun in place and give your strands a fuller appearance.

Layered Bob

Cutting long layers and long, side-sweep bangs into your bob haircut will give you massive versatility with very little effort. You can wear this haircut smooth and sleek or you can create big, lazy waves. Plus, it’s long enough to put up into a cute, half-up ponytail or bun. Blunt ends make the cut feel fresh and new—and they do away with summer’s split ends!

Double Buns

Double the pleasure of putting your hair in a bun with a whimsical, two-buns hairstyle. You can sport playful puffs or braid each side before winding your hair into the high buns. A center part is edgy and fun or try creating a side part for a more off-kilter effect!
