As a mom and digital influencer, I’m always pressed for time getting my girls ready and rushing into my weekday meetings. And all that in between traveling means I don’t have the luxury of sitting in front of a mirror for 30 minutes let alone 5. Besides, getting dressed is a process in itself, so the last thing I want to worry about when I wake up is my hair! While I value a great haircut and high-quality tools, getting up to style my mane every morning is not always practical. That’s exactly why I’m sharing five of my favorite quick and simple hairstyles for when I’m on the go. Whether you’re late for work or have three minutes to spare, one of these will surely come in handy.

5 Simple Hair Styles On the Go //

1 Sleek & Straight

My hair is naturally straight so this is the simplest option for me. And with blunt center parts making a comeback, it’s the perfect way to look sleek and professional without putting forth a ton of effort. It’s a look I’ve started embracing – and one that you should try before everyone else jumps on board. The key to making this look work is volume and texture which you can achieve with Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray – an industry favorite that I also love. This product will help you create movement and body – even in slick straight hair.

2 Loose & Wavy

I always find it funny how straight-haired girls covey lush wavy hair, but curly hair girls dream about straight hair. I have to admit, I do love soft waves – and it’s a hairstyle I wear often. If you’re trying to achieve this wavy look with the least amount of effort, I recommend doing it overnight. Start by applying a styling product and blow dry upside down until 75% dry. Then, part your hair into two sections and braid each side all the way down. Don’t forget to finger comb and set with hairspray in the AM. If you can spare a few minutes, you can always resort to a curling iron or hot rollers.

3 Simple Bun

A bun is every mom’s default hair style because it steers clear of your way all day – and stays put! You can wear a simple bun high at the crown or low at the nape of your neck. I do both. The easiest way to achieve an effortless looking bun is to pull your hair into a loose ponytail and tease it in sections with a mild-control hairspray. This will help you achieve weightless volume and hold. If you don’t have a ton of hair, two sections is perfect. Then, wrap the sections around in opposite directions and secure with bobby pins.

4 Top Knot

A top knot is one of my go-to hairstyles because you can wear it for all occasions. In the same way a great pump can take you from day to night, a top knot will go from casual to elegant instantly. That’s exactly why you see me wearing it so frequently! To get the perfect top knot, hoist your hair up into a ponytail at the crown of your head, mist with a texturizing spray for extra hold and grit, and then tease it again and again at the shaft to build volume. Afterwards, wrap it around at the base of your ponytail and tuck it in with pins. You can then use a comb and hairspray to smooth it out.

5 High Pony

The perfect high ponytail like my other looks involve a great texturizer, teasing, and hairspray! To start, tease your hair lightly at the crown for volume, then pull it back to however high you want it, making sure to smooth your hair all around with a wide-tooth comb or brush, and tie it up. Once you’re done, work some texturizing spray into the shaft and backcomb slightly for a bit of an undone look.
