Whether you’re a mom running from one errand to the next or an employee at a high-pressure job pulling off another long day at the office (or, you know, both), you probably don’t have a lot of time to fuss with your hair. While the quickest solution is a shorter, lower-maintenance ‘do, sometimes that’s not feasible — medium- and long-hair looks might just suit you better. If you want a classy style that doesn’t cramp your schedule, look no further! These three quick hairstyles and techniques can keep your hair looking clean, shiny, and stylish on even the busiest of days.

1. Use Dry Shampoo

A must-have product for any season, dry shampoo is a great way to keep your hair and scalp fresh when you don’t have time to wash and dry. For an early-morning refresher, apply a little and distribute it evenly with a synthetic boar-bristle brush. Another trick: Apply dry shampoo directly to your roots before you go to sleep so you wake up with hair that smells delicious.

2. Go with the Messy Bun

One of the easiest quick hairstyles to pull off when you haven’t had the chance to wash or style your hair is the messy bun. You actually need your hair to be slightly dirty — squeaky-clean hair won’t stay put. Creating the bun is easy: just tie your hair into a secure ponytail, then twist the loose end around your hair tie to create the illusion of a knot. Pin the hair and any loose strands using bobby pins. Then just spritz on some hair spray and you’ll be good to go!

3. Keep Things Simple with a Sleek Ponytail

Want a look that’s simple and chic? Detangle and brush your hair vigorously, then apply dry oil to the ends. Run your fingers through your hair before pulling it up and back into a tight ponytail. It’s a fuss-free look that will keep your hair out of your face and away from your neck on those busy days.
