26 Lazy Girl Hairstyling Hacks

These time-saving tips are basically your hairway to heaven.

1. A 20-second updo — split, knot, twist, and pin.

2. For quick curls, put your hair in a ponytail first and divide and conquer.

3. Apply dry shampoo the night before.

4. Make your ponytail POP by propping it up with two bobby pins.

5. And if you don't want to fuss with bobby pins, here's how to do it with two hair ties.

6. Roll your hair up into an elastic hairband.

7. Or do the tuck and cover.

8. If you frequent the sauna, use that time to deep-condition your hair.

9. Create a bun without hairties, bobby pins, clips, or pencils.

It entails twisting your hair into a bun, lifting up a bit of hair from the side, and tucking the bun under. Get the step-by-step tutorial and video here.

10. If you have especially thick hair that takes forever to dry, try "half-washing it" in the sink.

22. This sleek 'do only takes a minute and looks professional enough for work.

23. The messy knot hairdo will take your ponytail to the next level.
