Quick and Easy 5 Minute Hair


Ok, I admit, I have ridiculously long hair {and that I am overdue for a trim and high light touch up} BUT this style will work for medium length hair as well.


Divide your hair into 3 equal-ish sections {and yes, I have resorted to making up my own words, equal-ish seems like a perfectly acceptable word}. Starting with the middle section, take a rubber band and make a looped pony tail {basically, don't free your pony tail, keep it all knotted up in your rubber band}.


Repeat with the other 2 remaining sections.


Grab some bobby pins and pin down sections of hair. Fill in any gaps or pin down any strays. I usually just pin a few sections, look in the mirror, pin a few more and then that's it.



How many people does it take to do my hair? One, just me.


How many people does it take to do a hair tutorial? Um, two. One to do the hair {that would be me} and one to watch you do your hair and take pictures.  And this is how my husband amuses himself in 5 minutes.

  23. Ooooh! Now I am convinced we are kindred spirits! I do a very similar thing when I am running late and jump out of the shower without time for the blow dryer or straightener. (I'm clicking through old posts tonight and finding some I've never read before :)
