4 Lazy Girl Back To School Hairstyles (So You Can Hit Snooze)


In this blogger's humble opinion, snooze is always an option. This rings particularly true when school starts up again. The last thing we need to worry about is what to do with our hair on top of everything else. The good news is that the cornerstones of lazy girl hair never really went out of style, and will continue to make their way into our day to day routine (no shame here). On your first day, try one of these lazy girl back to school hairstyles to minimize prep time as much as posisble.

Not One, But TWO Messy Buns

Let's face it: the messy bun isn't going anywhere. Period. Why not vamp it up a bit and double the fun? The trick to getting the perfect bun is this: when pulling one of your pigtails through a hair tie, don't pull all the way through. When you've got a nice little loop, wrap the rest of your hair around the loop. When it's all the way wrapped around, finish looping your hair tie to secure the bun in place. Then adjust to make it more or less messy to your lazy girl heart's content, and follow suit on the other pigtail. If you're looking for something a little more clean, try using spin pins instead of a hair tie.


Braids, braids, braids.

Braids are so in right now, it's like we're in Amish country. Whether you're keeping it simple with a single braid for long-haired beauties or passing that Dutch with two french-tailed braids, you have infinite options that take practically no time at all. We find it's simplest and fastest to do a quick side braid (literally takes one minute).

Your Highness's Highest Ponytail

Sleek ponytails are super in right now, which makes mornings that much easier. If you want some extra oomph so your ponytail is a little higher, put two bobby pins on the underside of the hairband sticking straight down. This trick works wonders, even on super fine baby hair.


When All Else Fails...Revive Old Styles With Dry Shampoo

The laziest lazy girl move of all (and we're 100% not judging). Not only is this move easy peasy, but it's actually better NOT to wash your hair every day. Therefore, spritz away if last night's style is still around - no one will know the better. Not sure which dry shampoo to use? Try this handy dandy dry shampoo guide to see what works best for your hair type.
