6 hairstyles you can literally do in your car
Quick styles for when you’re strapped for time
Beauty Crew Contributor / May 26 2017
Whether you’re coming straight from a morning sweat session or slept through your alarm, creating a perfectly styled hair look in the early hours of the morning can sometimes seem impossible. Thankfully it’s not, you just need to have a few styles up your sleeve that you could literally do in the car if need be.
Take inspiration from a few of our favourite celebrities for the best hairstyles you can copy to look perfectly put-together in a flash.
Taylor Hill's half topknot
Taylor Hill’s off-duty model ‘do is the perfect go-to if your hair is a little dirty at the top, but the lengths are still okay. Section your hair from the top of your ears and gather into a half ponytail on the crown of your head. Twist the ponytail into a bun and pin down into place.
Hailey Baldwin's simple low bun
Hailey Baldwin shows us that sometimes super-subtle is the way to go. This ‘do is perfect for pairing with a radiant complexion, defined brows, and a soft lip. Simply let your part fall as it may, and scrape back into a low bun. If you have short layers at the front, tuck or pin them behind your ears to keep your hair looking polished.
Katie Holmes' sophisticated topknot
While a messy topknot is often the ultimate indicator you ran out of time, if executed correctly it can look polished and sophisticated. Brush your hair so it’s smooth and knot-free, then sweep it into a ponytail on top of your head. Twist your ponytail until it resembles a rope, and then wrap it around the base of the ponytail and secure with another hairband. If you’ve got any fluffy bits on the sides of your head, use bobby pins to pin them down. Consider it the step up from your Sunday morning messy bun.
Miranda Kerr's slicked back ponytail
Miranda Kerr’s low slicked-back ponytail is the ultimate time-saver and perfect for post-sweaty gym sesh. Sweep all the hair off your face straight back and tie at the nape of your neck, and pull your hairtie tight. Pair this look with a subtle lip and a touch of blush and you’ll be set to go in seconds.
Lucy Hale's half updo
Take inspiration from Lucy Hale‘s soft and pretty style and try the half pony. The great thing about this ‘do is that the more texture you have in your hair, and the looser the ponytail, the better. Proof that calculated messiness can work!
If you have a bit more time on your hands, this messy fishtail braid is the perfect 'do to take you from day to night.
