Summer is such a nice break from the day-to-day grind. We’re spending more time outside and maybe missing a deadline or two—choosing to linger over social engagements with family and friends instead. As we get closer to September, our long and lazy summer days are coming to a close. Before we know it, the leaves will begin to turn and we’ll head back into the reality of hectic schedules. When that back-to-reality, slap-your-6AM-alarm-clock moment officially hits, keep your locks looking gorgeous with these chic—and most importantly, quick—hairstyles.
Crowning glory: An ornate-looking style that’s actually as simple as it gets! Create this crown by starting with two braided pigtails. Wrap each braid over the top of the head, tucking the end of the braid under its counterpart. Fasten the ends to the head with a bobby pin.
