Getting the family ready for school is a daily challenge, especially when it involves playing hair stylist each morning. We’ve chosen 10 fast, cute and simple girls’ hairstyles packed with personality, so you can make it out the door on time, every time … well, almost every time!
1. The Classic Ballerina Bun
Take centre stage with a ballet bun up-do. Brush hair to smooth out the strands and pull the hair up in to a high ponytail with an elastic. Twist hair in to a bun, then fasten with a second elastic, hair net or French hairpins. To finish the look, pop on a ballet-themed baby pink ribbon or headband and she’s ready to dance her way in to the classroom.
2. Triple Plaited Princess Bun
An oldie, but a goodie, the plait has been around since the dawn of time, and luckily it’s relatively simple to do. Try a fresh variation by doing three plaits from the nape of the neck using this tutorial from Oh So Pretty. Pin each plait in to a bun and ta da! There you have it: elegant princess style in a flash. Style up this regal look on the weekends with a few jeweled hair clips.

3. Let’s Twist Again
The flip-and-twist ponytail might look complex, but it’s very easy. Pull the hair in to a loose ponytail and secure with an elastic. Next, create a gap in the hair, just above where the elastic sits. Take the ponytail in hand and flip the end into the gap, pulling hair through so it comes out underneath, creating a ‘twisted’ look. For another variation, up the ante with flip-and-twist pigtails.

4. This Little Piggy
Pigtails are another classic that evoke memories of youth and carefree play. Try these jazzed up pigtails, looped over like little ears and then decorated with bright ribbons or bobbles. Add a zigzag part and a few hair clips and you’ve created a statement look with a whimsical twist.

5. Sky-High Bubble Pony
Reach new heights with a zany up-do. Simply pull hair in to a high ponytail or pigtails, then tie elastics progressively down the length of the hair and pull slightly at each section to loosen and create a “bubble”. Add a bit of pizazz with bright multi-coloured elastics or character hair bobbles.

6. Heidi Braids
Goddess braid, halo braid, milkmaid braid, Heidi braid … however you describe it, this style is a gorgeous yet low maintenance ‘do. It’s easy to master and once pinned in place, it won’t move. Perfect for the playground! Create a centre part, then do two basic plaits from the nape of the neck. Wrap each braid over the front of the crown and pin behind the ears. Next, secure the lower sections of the braid with French hairpins. Use hands to slightly loosen hair to soften the look. See more variations here.
