Let’s face it, life gets really busy sometimes. So busy we let things slip – from painting our nails to polishing our shoes (I mean, who does this anymore?).

However, when you’re a working woman or aspiring business owner, appearance is everything. Yes, that suit you’re wearing may make you look uber-professional but if your hair resembles a bird’s nest, it’s going to seriously detract from your overall look.

That’s why we thought we’d bring you several hairstyles that you can do in just 5 minutes.

Simply kit yourself out with everything you need from companies like Capital Hair & Beauty and get to work styling your hair to perfection:

Wrap-Around Bun

Divide your hair into two parts – an upper and lower half. Place the upper half into a neat bun. Then, separate the bottom half into two pieces, crossing the right half under the bun before wrapping the hair into it. Repeat with the left side and voila!

Wrap It Up in a Head Scarf

If you’re struggling to get your brush through your hair or you feel like you’re having a bad hair day, you can bring it back to life with a colourful, patterned head scarf. Just tie your hair up in a messy bun on top of your head and tie the scarf around it. Then just straighten your fringe to complete the sassy look.

Twisted Bun

Split your hair down the middle to create two pigtails. Braid both of them to the tips before tying with an elastic band (clear). Then, twist both braids together before using hair grips to secure the edges and complete your gorgeous bun.

Tuck Your Hair into a Headband

Get an elastic headband that goes all the way around your head, placing it over all of your hair. Pull out a few layers around your face then roll the rest of your hair back into the band.

Twisted Fringe

Twist a small section of your fringe toward the back of your head, pinning it on the other side. Take another section of your hair from under this first one you’ve done, twisting it and pinning it over the first to finish.

Elegant Half Ponytail

Create volume by backcombing the top bit of your hair. From the front and side, gather your hair loosely, bringing it round to the back of your head. Secure it in place with hairpins.

Three-in-One Ponytail

This packs a real punch but is so easy to do. Simply tie your hair into three separate ponytails, one below the other. Then thread each ponytail through the one below to create one big show-stopping ponytail.

As you can see, it’s really easy to make a stunning statement with your hair without having to set your alarm an hour earlier.
