Most of our mornings are a battle between getting out of bed and hitting the snooze button for few precious minutes of extra sleep. Between making breakfast, and making small mental notes for the big presentation at work, you are hardly left with any time to look your best. However, if you only manage to fix your bed hair, you are set for your day at work and also for the cocktail party with friends later in the evening. Here are a few quick fixes to transform you into a diva every lazy morning:

First, divide your hair into two sections – upper and lower- and pin the upper half on the top of your head. Next, you can take the lower half of your hair to make the bun.
Take a few locks from this section and tease or back comb them. Once you have teased the hair, take it together and tie it with an elastic band. Make sure that you leave some of your hair from the tail, instead of pulling it all the way through the second loop. Also, while making the bun, pull it a little over to your right so that the bun sits behind your right ear. Once the bun is done, take down the hair that you had initially pinned up on your head. Then, part the hair.
The Knotted Bun:
For a dinner date, a new year’s party, your wedding day, or an office presentation, the knotted bun is a perfect hairdo for any occasion. You can work this hairstyle as you take the elevator to your office floor. Yes, it is that simple! You just need to tie your hair into a ponytail using an elastic band.

Next, twist your hair and roll it up into a knot that will sit behind your right ear. Or, roll it up high to sit on your crown. Once you have the knotted the bun in place, pin it using large bobby pins to hold it. However, make sure that while you twist your hair into the knot, you do not pin the tail of your hair along with it.
The Half Crown Braid:
Do you know how to braid your hair? Then, here is a classy yet easy hairstyle for you. Start by making one or two-inch sections of hair on the side, above your ear. Split this section into three and braid it. Make sure you angle the braid along the back of your head and then secure it using a small elastic band.

Repeat the same procedure on the other side, above your ear. Once you have finished both braids, take one and bring it around the back of your hair and pin it in place using bobby pins. Next, take the second braid, cross it over the first braid and tuck it under the first.
Triple Twisted Ponytail:
Are you a mom who has to drop her kids to school before heading to work? Then, the triple twisted ponytail is the hairstyle for you! You just need to part you hair in three sections – one on either side and one down the middle. Take the middle section first, and tease the hair from top to bottom, using a hairbrush. Once that is done, take this section, and twist it around your index finger. Then, pin the twisted hair close to your nape, using a bobby pin. If you think you need a second bobby pin to keep your hair in place, then you can. Next, take the left section, twist it around your index finger, and again pin it in place.
