    People Are Sharing Their Lazy Hairstyling Hacks On TikTok And Here Are Some Of The Cutest Ones

    It's time to cue some 🎵Roxanne 🎵and try some new hairstyles in front of the mirror.

    Note to readers: BuzzFeed has not tested out these hacks, so we can't confirm that they all work.

    1. For a full-looking, sleek braid-wrapped bun, use a donut bun maker ($6.79 from Amazon for a set of 3), spread your ponytail out over it, and use the remaining hair as a braid wrap.


    Curious on how I do the braid around my bun? Keep watching! 😍 #foryou #fyp #hairstyleswithmel #4u

    OK that was hard to explain, but you really need to just watch the video to get it.

    2. When using a curling wand, always hold it right side up, not upside down, and don't let the ends touch the hot part.

    For beachy waves, you want straight, not curled ends.

    3. To get a super full-looking, bouncy ponytail a lá Ariana, make two ponytails and knot them together.

    Again, it's hard to explain, so just watch the video!

    4. Use your boyfriend's beard balm if you want to do a no-heat wavy hairstyle in a pinch.

    5. This is the "definitive" VSCO girl hair bun, in case you were wondering what the official stance was.

    It involves a "fanning out" of the bun and a scrunchie, of course.

    6. For a variation on the half-up ponytail, make four little knots instead.

    8. This one-swipe hairstyle using just a simple hair comb is frickin' genius and effortless.

    12. It works with a bandana, too.

    Always put your hair in a pony first.

    13. Here's another that's so simple you'll wish you'd thought of it: Bangs getting in your face? Too long to fit into a ponytail?

    15. Go from long to shoulder-length hair using this string trick.

    No, it isn't that practical, but will come in handy when testing out new hair lengths before your next haircut.

    16. For that classic #horsegirl look, braid under your chin and then ✨flip✨.


    The braid would’ve looked so much better if my hair was pinned straight 😬😭 #foryoupage
