Whether you are a morning person, or not, doing your hair can be a time consuming process. Everyone wants their hair to look effortlessly beautiful, but we all know that a lot of effort is involved. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather sleep more than get up to do my hair! Here are some easy, no heat hairstyles for back to school!


French braids are a classic hairstyle that all girls can rock. Whether you do one french braid, or two, this hairstyle is an easy way to keep hair out of your face. If you want to be extra creative you can even try dutch braids!

Half Updo:

Half up, half down is another super easy updo for back to school. A bunch of my friends often rock this hairstyle, and they always look super cute and put together!

Messy Bun:

A messy bun can truly be effortless. Girl, throw your hair up in a messy bun, and go! Not only do messy buns look cute, they are also an easy, quick hairstyle that helps keep hair out of your face.

Ballerina Bun:

If you appreciate a bun, but don’t want it messy, opt for a ballerina bun. I always associate neat ballerina buns with a girl who knows what she’s doing. Pick up a hair donut at your local drug store, slip it over you ponytail, roll your hair up, throw in some bobby-pins and voila! Ballerina bun!

Crimped Waves:

Remember those french braids? Well they are multi-functional! After you take a shower, put your hair in braids, and leave them in when you go to sleep. The next morning take out your braids, and enjoy your heatless crimped waves!
