With our busy schedules it's not always easy to find enough time to get dolled up. Our jobs can be very demanding, and a lot of us work through the holidays, making it even harder to squeeze in a pampering session. Here are four last-minute hairstyles that are so quick they'll let you keep working up until the very las

The messy retro ponytail

If you haven't had time to wash your hair in a couple of days, then you're in luck. Wild unkempt hair can be used to your advantage for this hairstyle, as it helps give great volume. Just tease your hair and then bring it all up into a Brigitte Bardot style ponytail. Ultimate messy chic guaranteed.

The knotted scarf

Sometimes all it takes to have a unique but memorable hairstyle is the perfect accessory. Arrive fashionably on time for your next holiday party by using a colorful scarf as a headband - tie it into a large knot close to your forehead and then you're good to go. Beautiful can be easy!

The ultra-straight style

Let your straightener heat up for 5 minutes while you apply your makeup or change into your outfit. Brush your hair to get all the tangles out, divide your hair into sections, and then straighten each one. It's simple, but it's a great go-to glamorous style for holiday parties.

The top knot

Use a comb to quickly get the tangles out and then twist your hair up into a high bun towards the front of your head. Use a hair tie and some bobby pins to hold the style in place. Don't worry about it being perfect – messy is in!
