The easiest natural hairstyle has to be the wash-and-go, because well, it’s just like the name suggests—you wash it and go about your day. The number of styling products you use are totally up to you.

Straight and sleek

We’re here to debunk the myth that short hair is just limited to “lugay.” In fact, a bob even a pixie can be your playground. All you need to do is to straighten your bob with a hair iron and polish your look with some hairspray on the crown.


It can’t get much easier than a ponytail. What can be easier for long hair than a cute ponytail? Ponytail hairstyles are not only for the gym. You can style a classy side ponytail or a chic high ponytail for a formal event or a night out with friends.


Defined curls can also be achieved with a braid-out if that’s what you prefer. You can do the same process as the twist-out, but instead, section your hair off into three-strand braids. This can give varying results based on the size of the braids and your natural texture, but is consistently a strong way to bring out the best in your voluminous curls.

Messy Bun

What’s better than a regular bun? A messy one, of course. It should take less than a minute to do and maybe another minute if you like to style your baby hairs. For this hairstyle, you will have most of your hair down. As for the braids, this is the best part. Your braids will be at the front of your head in a diagonal line leading up to your double buns. This is such a trendy look for anyone who wants to try a bohemian hairstyle.

A half-up top knot

One of the best hair hacks that you can incorporate to your list of easy hairstyles is the fancy half-up top knot. It is one of the most popular and trending DIY hairstyles that many have been choosing thanks to its fancy appearance. There are many ways in which you can perk up your half-up top knot and make it look fabulous. No matter what your hair looks like, you can use this easy hairstyle to tie up your hair.

Double Buns

Forget about that messy topknot, this season is all about looking cool and cute with double buns. This is for the girls who just want their double buns and want to keep it as simple as possible. Don’t want half your hair down or braids in it? The simpler, the better right? Then, this double bun easy hairstyle is for you!

Double Braids

Braiding your hair doesn’t always mean you have to get cornrows. These pigtail braids are an easy and speedy style that you can achieve in minutes—though, if you’re braiding in extensions, it might take a little longer.

Half-Up, Half-Down

Try your hand at a practical and romantic half-up half-down style next time you can’t decide what to do with your hair. Simply secure the top half of your hair at the top or back of your head using elastics or pins, and feel free to leave a few face-framing pieces out for extra elegance.

Half-Up fishtail braid

Oh how cool is a fishtail braid? Super cool isn’t it? Feel your best-est with this gorgeous easy hairstyle! I think learning how to fishtail braid is a skill all girls should have. It is fun to do, and easier than a regular braid or French braid.

A scarf style for all your curly tresses needs

Curly hair can be quite challenging to work around, especially in terms of maintenance. Although they do give out a gorgeous wild personality, they can be pretty tough to tame. However, a simply scarf tied in varied ways can be quite the solution your hair has been seeking! With a scarf, you can tie a turban by covering all the hair, you could go for a low bun, tie up your tresses in a top knot with the scarf or tame it down to a top bun. Whatever you do, a head wrap or a scarf would be the perfect accessory and a hair hack to use.
