6 Heatless Back To School Hairstyles

I was looking online for some back to school hair articles and found this one from Luxyhair.com that I thought I’d share. If you’re looking for easy, heatless back to school hairstyles, or hairstyles for when you’re running late -this post will give you some great quick ideas.

Hairstyles for school (or work) need to be quick and super easy. An extra bonus is when the hair is secured away from your face, and can last all day without you having to worry about fixing it every ten minutes.

These 6 styles will literally take a couple of minutes to create.

#1: Rope Braid Ponytail

Start by brushing your hair to get rid of any knots and tangles.

Secure the hair in a high ponytail, and add some hairspray if you’d like to keep those flyways at bay.

Now, you’re going to create a rope braid. Start by separating your ponytail in two sections, and twisting both sections in the same direction. Then, twist those two sections together in an opposite direction, to make a rope braid.

Continue rope braiding all the way down. Once you’re done, secure with a hair tie and that’s it!

This look is very sleek and put-together, and is definitely more interesting than a regular ponytail.

#2: Half-up rope braids

This next hairstyle uses elements of the same rope braid, but in a slightly different way.

Begin by taking a small section of hair on one of the sides of your head, and split it in two.Split that section of hair in two and twist both of them in the same direction. Then, twist both of these sections in an opposite direction. Repeat the same steps on the other side and you’ll end up with two really fun looking rope braids.

All you do now is pin them together at the back with some bobby pins and you’re done! This looks beautiful and is super easy to create. If you don’t like rope braids, you can do the exact same hairstyle with a regular three strand braid or a fishtail braid.

#3 – Criss-cross hairstyle

Take two small sections from the front of your face and pull them back tightly at the back of your head. Secure with a really small elastic band.

Then you will take another two sections from the front and repeat the same steps. If you’d like, you can continue doing this all the way down and will end up with a cool looking braid.

This hairstyle is a perfect way to get the hair out of your face and although it takes literally under a minute, it looks very put-together.

#4 – Braided headband

If you have long hair, this is a really fun way to style it. Take a section of your hair behind your ear and do a regular braid all the way down. Then, pin it across your head, like a headband. Do the same thing on the other side.

#5 – Dutch braid bun

This hairstyle is definitely for those who love experimenting with hairstyles and aren’t afraid to have a little fun with with their hair.

Start by sectioning the front of your hair and doing a dutch braid( and inside out braid).

Secure the dutch braid with a small elastic band and pull up the hair into a ponytail. You can stop there, or go one step further and pull your hair up in a bun.

This hairstyle allows for the hair to be completely out of your face, and has a unique braid element that will make you stand out from the crowd.

#6 – The braided space buns

And of course, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show you how to do space buns in your hair.

Pull up your hair in two high ponytails, and start doing a regular braid, which you will then pull up into a bun. Use a bunch of bobby pins to secure it in place and repeat on the other side. We love how trendy it looks, and doing braids instead of regular buns definitely spices things up even more!

Back to School


As the summer is quickly starting to come to what seems like a close and school is starting to creep up on us, we start to see back to school items pop up every where in the stores. The salon will start to see lots of our teachers we haven’t seen all summer grudgingly acknowledge the time has come and get their back to school styles and colors done. We start to see lots of kids coming in for back to school haircuts sporting bright sunkissed hair and dark tans from all their fun times in the sun this summer. The college kids are all getting supplies and getting ready to move into their dorms.
