Not convinced? Read on for 7 Quick and Effortlessly Cool Hairstyles for Busy Women.

1. The Messy Top Bun

If you’re looking for a bun that doesn’t require a lot of time, the quickest hairstyle is definitely the Messy Top Bun which pretty much goes with any outfit! Simply use your fingers to work your hair up onto the top of your head and make a ponytail. If you’re into the #iwokeuplikethis hair, simply tease the hair to get a bit more texture. As you twist your ponytail loosely around its base, pin your hair section by section to secure it in place.

You can even add a cute accessory like the Iles Formula Twilly – handcrafted in France in 100% silk to elevate your look for the day! If you’re interested, click here to shop now because these are limited edition products and are going fast!

Pro Tip: The position of your half-bun totally changes your entire look. A half-bun at the top of your head is a classic one for Friday night-outs, a half bun at the crown of your head is cute for work, and a half-bun behind your head is perfect for a short visit to the grocery store.

2. The Low Bun

If you want to take your bun game to the next level, you can try the sleek low attach. Not only does it look classy and professional, but it’s also super easy to do! Whether you’re looking for a hairstyle for an important business meeting or for a date night, we’ve got you covered with this elegant and time-saving look. Work on the luster with the Iles Formula Finishing Serum. You won’t find a better solution for shine and control.

If you have natural waves, swap the finishing serum out for the Iles Formula Curl Revive to keep unwanted frizzies out of the way. Use your fingers to create this style. Don’t brush it or much of the raw texture will be lost.

3.  The Low Attach

You can start with your natural hair texture regardless of whether your hair is naturally straight or slightly wavy. Otherwise, you can blow it out smoothly. For optimum sleekness, simply prep your hair with the Iles Formula Curl Revive to instantly smooth away any knots and tangles to effortlessly achieve the Iles Formula spun silk hair texture that we are famous for.

  • Part your hair naturally. Use the tail of your comb to even the hair out and dab on more serum for any flyaway hairs on both sides. This will make sure your hair stays in place while you’re on the go.
  • Sleek your hair back into a tight low ponytail and instead of pulling the tail all way through stop halfway. Let it sit on the bottom of your neck.  There you have it – a chic, sleek chignon that’s way cooler than the average low bun!

Pro Tip: Let those inches SHINE by applying Iles Formula Finishing Serum over the outer surface of your hair like hair polish for that glassy look. Once you try it, you won’t be able to stay away!

4. The Half-Up, Half Down

This is such an easy hairstyle to do with naturally textured hair. It’s perfect if you want a face free from hair for the day, sitting by a desk with a computer or doing housework. It’s a little retro 1940s almost a romantic look. We just love the feminine softness of it! One can just use fingers as the comb taking sections of hair and rolling them over 2 fingers twice in the backward direction. Then, you pin it, leaving the ends out to softly cascade into the longer lengths.

Bobby pins are one of the few hair accessories that have multiple uses! And this hairstyle really puts bobby pins to work. Try this out on days when you have overslept and running late or you just don’t feel like putting in too much effort into your hair to get a cute look.

It can’t get easier than this … using up all your bobby pins to create your own individual hair accessory at very little expense. So cool, don’t you think?

5. The Bubble Tail

Another cool look that can be done in minutes is to use small bands along the length of a ponytail to create this modern-day Versushka look from the ’60s. Purchase small bands that are the same color as your hair to keep it chic!

6. The Braided Headband

This Braided Headband half halo look is perfect for those with long wavy hair. With the length and texture of textured hair, you can easily dress it up to make it fancier and achieve an attractive yet elegant look. Textured hair definitely needs more moisture and consistent replenishment. Our Iles Formula 3 Step System for all hair types has everything you need – from shampoo, conditioner to the finishing serum to nurture your curls, waves and textured hair. Our hand-picked natural ingredients are full of antioxidants from the Amazon. This helps tame unruly hair, leaving your hair nourished, shiny and silky.

7. Simply Ribbon It or Wrap it

A ribbon does a thousand wonders. Keep it thin and velvety (the velvet slips less than the silk ribbons).

This look requires just one step: simply leave out a side section when creating your ponytail.  Once the tail is secured wrap the section over and around the tails elastic and secure underneath with bobby pins. Finish off the look with the Iles Formula Finishing Serum to give you that extra boost of glow and you will be office-ready in seconds!
