It reminds us of something that Belle might adopt in Beauty and the Beast. Great for wearing to school when the weather is hot and you need to keep your hair out of your face.
5. Sleek Top Knot
This one is just like the slicked back ponytail that we mentioned before, but instead of leaving your hair loose at the end, you can wrap it up into a bun.
Effortlessly stylish, chic, and great for when your hair is getting a little on the greasier side, we recommend this one for 3 day hair.

Now that we’ve taken a look at a super cool sleek top knot style bun, why not look at the classic messy bun.
This one can be difficult to get right at first (who knew achieving a messy look could be so difficult), but once you’ve given it a few practice runs, it will look absolutely effortless.
7. Half Bun
If you want a cool half up half down look, why not consider putting the top layer of your hair in a bun? You can simply keep the rest of it hanging down in a loose wavy look.
This one is a great hairstyle purely because it suits all different kinds of hair lengths, be they short or long.
8. Braided Headband
This one is essentially a french braid but at the front of your hair. This is why it’s called a braided headband.

This is a great hairstyle to adopt after your hair has been freshly washed. This is the point at which your hair is most likely to keep the shape of the waves in your hair so that you can wear it all week long.
Super easy to do, and you don’t even require a curling iron, just a pair of straighteners.
11. The High Puff
If you don’t want to spend too much time styling your hair in the morning before school, then why not just bring all of your hair up into a high puff. It looks super aesthetically pleasing, and is a great casual look to wear throughout the day.

This textured ponytail is incredibly voluminous, and great for when you want to add a little height to your hair.
We recommended this hairstyle for those who have naturally thin hair, as it can help to spruce it up a little.
14. Poofy Braid

For those who are accustomed to doing french braids for school, why not spice this traditional hairstyle up a little with some ribbons.
We really love the velvety ones that are used here, and using different colors to match with the seasons can make you look super trendy.
17. Triple Buns
Why have one bun when you can have three? This hairstyle certainly isn’t for everyone, and if you’re somebody who has short hair, this one isn’t possible unfortunately.
But, if you have super luscious long locks, then you can put your hair in this amazing style.
18. Fishtail Halo
If you’re a fan of the fishtail braid, this halo braid is honestly one of the prettiest out there. If you want to have one of the prettiest and stylish hairstyles in school, then why not give this relaxed fishtail halo a try.

You can match the headscarf to the color of the outfit that you plan on wearing that day.
20. Bobby Pin Style
This hairstyle is great for people who have incredibly thin and wispy hair, as this kind of texture usually causes it to fall in front of your face, which can be incredibly annoying.
If you want to avoid the hassle of pushing the hair away from your face all day, and wearing a super cool hairstyle at the same time, then you have to try this bobby pin tutorial.
21. Charm Side Braid
If you’ve seen the side braid with charms before, chances are that you’re probably too afraid to try it because you think it will be difficult to achieve. In actual fact however, it’s super easy.

22. Oversized Pigtails
Who said that pigtails were reserved for little girls? They can look amazing at any age, and this oversized pigtail look proves that point perfectly.
A great way to transform voluminous curls into a trendy look, this hairstyle is truly eye catching to behold.
23. Simple Fishtail Braid
We all love a simplistic fishtail braid now and again, but it’s not often people’s first choice when it comes to hairstyles. Many don’t actually know how to construct this hairstyle, but it’s just as easy as french braids once you get the hang of it.
24. French Twist Ponytail
We’re honestly not sure that we’ve come across a hairstyle as effortlessly chic and stylish as this one. It consists of a chignon and a low ponytail, and we truly can’t think of a better match.
Great for when you want to go for a more sophisticated look.
25. Pin Up Bangs
Perhaps you;re somebody who likes to go for hairstyles that are a little more retro in nature. Many people shy away from vintage looks because they think that they’re difficult to achieve, but this isn’t the case for all of them.
