Stress-free Hairstyles For Busy College Schedules

Headed back to campus this fall? Whether you’re a new freshman or a seasoned co-ed, you always go in intending to get into a system where you have time in the morning while making yourself look totally put together. Sometimes close to when classes start, you may find yourself just making it to class in time while throwing your hair up on the way.



You can still make your hair look great while in a hurry with these quick & easy hairstyles that take minutes to get you looking put together. 



Twisted Updo

This is a great style to get your hair out of your face while giving you an updated, chic look. In a rush? Keep it simple with a quick twist. If you have a few more minutes, you can get a little fancier with the knots and braids for a look that’ll last all day long. Simply start with a ponytail, add a few twists and secure it with a decorative hair comb and bobby pins as needed.



Loose Braids

Messy, loose braids can look intentional while giving you the perfect look on campus. While this takes just a couple extra minutes over a pony, it’s well worth the effort. You don’t have to worry about your braids looking tight or even neat. A little touch of messiness will give off a stylish look. If you experience your braids always looking a tad frizzy by the end of the day, try adding nourishment and moisture into your hair with KMS Tame Frizz Conditioner.



Flipped Out Ends

If you have a little extra time in the morning and want to make a good impression or have work later in the day, add a little style with these flipped-out ends. All you’ll need is a flat iron and R+CO Tinsel Smoothing Oil for a finished look. Work section by section to run a flat iron through your hair, angling it slightly outward at the ends, causing them to flip up. Use the smoothing oil to smooth away flyaways and keep your hair shiny all day long.



Textured Ponytail

For a vintage grunge style, try this textured, ‘piece-y’ ponytail. It’s as simple as putting your hair in a ponytail, then taking out select pieces in the front for a casual look. If you’re trying to grow out your summer blonde, the rooty blonde color with darker roots will add to this style’s vibe.



Layered Cut

A great way to change up your hair without losing length is by adding layers. It’s a great way to add volume and an easy way to allow your hair’s natural texture to shine through whether it’s curly, wavy, or straight. Layers work with or without bangs, a side or middle part, and for all lengths from pixies to long, flowing locks.  If you still want to be able to put your hair up, be sure to let our Parisian stylist know so the shortest layer is still long enough to put back.



Easy Color Options

You may be looking for a hair color change while you’re at college but keep in mind that you’ll need something that’s not high maintenance.




  • Babylights: These subtle highlights will add just the right touch to show-off without the frequently needed touch-ups. For blondes and brunettes, try caramel babylights and for redheads, we suggest a copper shade.

     

  • Chunky highlights: These high contrast strips of color through your hair adds some fun to your look. As in the name, the dye is applied to chunky strips of hair instead of the subtle look of babylights.

     

  • Money Piece highlights: By adding balayage highlights, in a lighter shade than your base color, just to the front strands of your hair, it will add brightness and dimension to both your hair and your complexion. With it only being the two sections of your hair, you can let them grow out or opt to maintain – the choice is yours.
