1. The Twist Back
I promise, a lot of these hair hacks look way more complicated than they are – so all of the style, none of the effort. Plus, you can always tweak a look to your own tastes, like you might want less of a twist here, or you might prefer using bobby pins to hold your hair. No problem!
2. Twisted Bun
This is so cute, and it's an easy way to give yourself a bun fit for any occasion. Plus, in the evening, you'll have some gorgeous waves if you unwrap your bun.
3. Easy Twisty Bun
When easy hairstyles actually announce themselves, you have to trust that. Here your trust is well-placed and again, you can get killer body later.
4. This Epic Side Braid
This is easy even if you can't French braid for beans (guilty!), and there's something so Katniss-inspired about it. Makes me want to grow out my hair again, I think.
5. Easy Chignon
Sign me up for this! The chignon is classic and this is the easiest interpretation I've ever seen. Seriously, this will please even the laziest of the lazy.
6. The Messy Bun
There are dozens of takes on this classic so pick your favorite – or try this version if you can spare a few minutes to perfect it. After the first time, it's cake.
7. Messy Top Knot
Top knots are chic and kind of librarian sexy, especially when you make them a little messy.
8. Twisted Bun Two
I like the end result of this twisted bun. It's kind of like a cinnamon roll but it's really pretty!
9. Low-Braided Bun
This claims to take two minutes. How long did it take you?
10. A Little Bouffant, a Little Updo
Again, put in the initial effort to learn this one and it'll be super quick ever after. It's awesome when you want to rock a retro look.
11. Low Ponytail
This is a catwalk staple but you don't even need a hired stylist to strut your stuff.
12. Fake Fishtail
This is one of my favorite hairstyles for lazy girls, because it's not just for lazy girls. It's also for those of us for whom the fishtail braid remains elusive. I cannot do a fishtail to save my life.
13. The Perfect Pony
This really is the perfect ponytail. This is one of the most brilliant hair hacks I've ever seen. Look how much more volume and lift you get!
14. Twisty Top Knot
You can do a stunning array of things to your hair simply by twisting your pigtails. This is too cute and it just takes a minute or two.
15. Knotted Bun
It looks like the finished product takes hours to perfect, but there are so few steps to perform. I think the end result is so soft and pretty!
Lazy hairstyles often make stylish, smart use of accessories. This is also easier than just pulling it up over your face and then trying to style it. Inevitable failure.
17. Length Illusion
Here's another great hair hack that makes your ponytail look lusher and fuller. In two simple steps, you can also make your pony look crazy long.
