9 Ways to Pull Your Hair Up, Fast

by Martha Adams

We're officially in the sweaty, dog days of summer and it can be pretty hard to muster up the energy to doing anything more creative with your hairstyle than throwing it back into a simple ponytail. But these pretty buns, top knots and chignons are just as quick and easy—and do a way cuter job at keeping sticky strands out of your face. Whether you're looking for an idea for the office, date night or just running errands, below are some of our favorite styles we've been obsessing over on Pinterest. Then, don't forget to follow SELF and find more looks we'll be wearing for the rest of summer and into fall.

A light summer scarf or handkerchief adds a pop of color to a T-shirt and jeans combo,while also helping to tuck back any flyaways or short layers. Spritz hair with a dry shampoo—try Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush ($8)—to not only give give your strands some grip, but to also add the dreamy texture a hairstyle like this craves.

Take one look at this hairstyle and try to convince yourself that a few flyaways aren't the coolest thing ever. Start by running a texturizing cream like Bumble and Bumble Bb. Texture Hair (Un)Dressing Creme ($14) through your strands, tease the crown, and leave out two one-inch sections on both sides of your part. Then, pin the rest back into a messy bun and create two classic three-strand braids with the loose pieces, criss-crossing and pinning them on top of the bun.

A cute sock bun is one of the quickest ways to get your hair completely out of your face in the summer heat—and it's way less complicated then it looks with the help of a hair donut bun. Create a high ponytail and pull it through a stretchy hair color-coordinating donut like the Forever 21 Small Donut Bun ($2). Loosely wrap your hair around the bun and tuck the ends in with bobby pins.

The easiest way to give post-workout hair a cool twist? Run a shine-inducing serum like John Frieda Frizz Ease Original Hair Serum ($10) from root to tip, then leave the ends of your ponytail tucked in to fake a low chignon in seconds.

This unique style gives fresh meaning to a business-in-the-front and party-in-the-back 'do. After spritzing on a volumizing spray like Sally Hershberger Plump Up Thickening Mist ($13), flip hair upside down to create an imperfect French or Dutch braid starting from the nape of your neck. Once you get to the crown of your head, flip your hair back right side up and throw the rest of the hair into a haphazard top knot.

This soft, romantic updo is easiest when you work in smaller sections. Spritz on a little bit of sea salt spray—try OGX Moroccan Sea Salt Spray ($6)—to add texture. After creating a low ponytail, take half-inch sections and loosely pin it around the base of the ponytail until it's fully covered.

This clever hairstyle makes a strong case for proving two buns are better than one. It's perfect for ladies with short hair who can't gather all their hair into a single twist. Rub in a styling cream like Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment ($26) to smooth out strands and add shine. Then divide hair horizontally into two sections, twist your hair into two mini chignons and pin in place.

A half-up hairstyle gets shorter layers out of your face but still gives you the breezy feel of keeping it down. Use a few bobby pins to pull back the top portion of your hair into a swirly bun, then spritz it with TRESemme Tres Two Extra Firm Control Hairspray ($5) to keep it in place all day long.

This classic hairstyle is made even more sophisticated when accented with a pearl hair pin. Simply run a frizz-taming treatment—try Aesop Shine ($35)—through the ends of your hair, twist and then secure with bobbies. Lastly, tuck in a pretty hair pin for the finishing touch.
