Be it short, long or mid-length, styling hair can be a bit of a pain at times. Especially when you are bored of the same old straight hair look or a simple ponytail. And honestly, who even has the time to blow-dry or head to a parlour on a daily basis, right?
So, to solve all your hairstyling woes, we got in touch with popular blogger Shalini Samuel who shared some easy and quick hairstyles for you girls! The best part? You can easily DIY and that too under only 10 mins!
1. Voluminous Twist Hairstyle
Even though this hairstyle looks a bit complicated, you’d actually only a few minutes to make it! It can be done easily on mid-length or long hair.
STEP 1: Take a 3-4 inch section of hair and split that into half.
STEP 2: Now twist it once and then keep adding sections from the front into the top section and take the lower section on the top (just twist it).
STEP 3: Do this all the way till the other side of the neck.
STEP 4: Secure and leave the rest of the hair on one side open.
2. Voluminous Ponytail
This hairstyle takes about one minute to make and adds volume to your hair. So if you particularly have thin hair then this one’s for you.
STEP 1: Backcomb two sections on the top and add the pouf maker in the centre.
STEP 2: Take all your hair over it and you’ll instantly get volume on the top of your head.
STEP 3: Take the rest of the hair into a high ponytail and wrap a section of hair around the base so the rubber band is hidden.
3. Twist In Braid Hairstyle
This is a twist on the classic braid. Instead of doing a regular braid, try doing this one.

STEP 4: Pull on the sides to open up the flipped in hair.
4. Voluminous Bun Trick
Now, this is a hairstyle that everyone can make! It works for all lengths and is perfect for bad hair days.

STEP 2: Take your hair into a ponytail and then pass it through the bun maker.
STEP 3: Start twisting it inwards and secure the ends.
STEP 4: Bring both the ends together and secure it with a pin so the bun maker isn’t seen at all.
