Frantic Rush in the Morning – You and your Long Hair

12 Dec

The frantic rush of the morning is something we all experience at one time or another in our lives. Sometimes there isn’t enough time to style long hair. That being said if you don’t have long hair yet, why don’t you get some Fast shampoo and conditioner and lock in on its promise of turbo-charged hair growth and get the answer to your long hair dreams. While there isn’t a magic spray that you can use to get crazy fast hair setup hacks, there are a few simple styles that look presentable and professional. These should all be something simple to setup in less an a minute and it is something easy for you to practise while your at home alone.


First make sure you have some things on hand before you even consider starting a quick hair fix process. While you don’t necessarily need an emergency kit to fix your hair, having some readily available hair products can make this adventure a short one as it was intended. Making sure you have a solid brush and some elastics can make this process go smoothly. Extra things to include are styling sprays and gels, a volumizing spray and sometimes a straight edge like a pencil to put inside of a style like a bun.

Now that you’ve prepared a spot or a drawer with the necessary fixes mentioned above now it’s time to look at what you can do with your hair in a time crunch. There are several styles that you can do if you have more time but you’ll have to keep it simple. Try to avoid anything where you will need to use a heavy heating product or tool as they take more time. If you have to heat a curling iron then that hairstyle is not a quick fix and you may as well style your hair completely as if you had plenty of time.


Let’s break it down into three simple hairstyles you can use and how you can get your hair into that style during a quick rush in the morning or evening.

Messy Bun

Pull hair into a high pony and lock down any flyaways with an elastic headband laid about an inch from your hairline. Wrap the length of your pony into a bun, twisting as you go, and secure with an elastic band or bobby pins. Use a pencil or the end of a tail comb to evenly lift the section of hair between the headband and your bun for volume.

Double Pony

Pull the hair above your ears into a half-up half-down pony, leaving the hair beneath your ears loose. Use a brush to sweep the hair up for more volume and to fill it out slightly. Pull the remaining hair into a pony right beneath the first pony tail. The tease the top pony as it settles down on top of the original pony.

Half up and Half Down

If your hair still holds some of the style for yesterday you can do another quick fix to ride that out a little longer until you need to wash and style again. Pull hair into a half-up half-down style, leaving a few face-framing pieces out, and secure with a clear or hair-colored elastic. Next, take hold of the bottom part of the pony. Create a little space above the elastic and loop the pony through it.

While these are only a few simple style to help set up your hair, there are plenty more you can find online or from a stylist. Remember the key to these styles is ensuring that it can be done quickly and effortlessly needing little to no extra products or tools. If you can’t get it perfect it is okay, these are temporary fixes to a full style you just did not have the time for. As you may have noticed a majority of these style pull the hair from the face so if you can’t get your hair perfect make sure you have the time for a little makeup as an accent or to make sure if your have a beard that it is brushed. It only takes a few small steps to make sure that you casually pass the “did you go out late last night?” test.
