If you’re like me, you’ll notice that your mood, vibe and overall look seems so much more happier and elevated when you have your hair in place. I’m not talking about a full-blown blow-out or hair ‘do though… I’m relating to basic, yet effortlessly put together hairstyles that will give you the motivation to get through the day and to take that cute work-desk selfie!

Below, I’ve rounded up 6 very basic, very easy and zero-hassle hairstyles, that don’t require any specific talent or hair accessories—just some clips, hair ties and cute scrunchies will do the trick!

1. Scarf Braid


  1. Tie a low ponytail
  2. Wrap and tie a scarf around your hair tie
  3. Start making a 3-strand braid till the end
  4. Tie the end with an elastic hair tie

2. Messy High Bun


  1. Gather your hair at the top
  2. Twist and wrap it around to resemble a bun
  3. Secure with a coloured or printed thick scrunchie

3. Claw-Clip Low Bun


  1. Move your fingers through the hair and gather at the lower end of your neck
  2. Twist the section and vertically pin it in place with a claw clip
  3. Gently take out a few front-framing pieces of hair

*Pro Tip: The messier, the better.

6. Clipped Bubble Pony

  2. Attach a clip over to hide the hair tie
  3. Leave some space (palm-sized) and continue with the same method of the hair tie and clip until you come to the end
  4. Using your fingers, gently pull a few strands from the vacant spaces until it resembles a bubble of sorts
