You have your outfit all set, shoes, and accessories picked, and nails all done - but your hair is a mess and you have no time to get it done. Why? Your friends are downstairs yelling to hurry up because you are late for the party. This can be problematic if you don't have easy hairstyles to create a look in ten minutes or less.

For sure, your hair can make or break all the effort you put into the preparations for your upcoming party. Therefore, you should have a list of easy hairstyles you can choose from if you ever find yourself in a time crunch.

So, whether you like your hair worn down, loose, flowing, or even crimped, we have a broad selection of easy hairstyles for you to pick from. Here are the top 18 party hairstyles that are easy and quick to do:

Dual-purpose ribbon

Tying a ribbon is a super fun, easy hairstyle. The best part about a dual-purpose ribbon is it goes well with any type of hair, from pin-straight to wavy and super curly strands. To tie a ribbon, take a ¼ ribbon and tie it around your neck loosely, then tie it around your hair. This hairstyle is not only easy but is always an ideal choice for all events and parties.

The double bun

Another easy party hairstyle you can do in less than five minutes is the double bun – to do this style, simply make two buns, one on top of the other. Similarly, you may opt to make a bubble pony, which, as one expert explains, "Split your hair into two sections, a high and low pony, and then bind them together with an elastic band." Then use a new elastic band every two inches down the ponytail and create something like a bubble.

Backward headband

If you are one of the people blessed with curly hair or just happened to have a blowout done on that day, this party hairstyle is perfect for you. All you need to do is add a sparkly accessory, and to keep it from slipping (especially if you have straight hair), you can hold it with a pin. Alternatively, throw your hair up and add texture spray to ensure it sticks.

Braided side bun

If you thought a sophisticated updo would not make you stand out at the party, you are completely wrong. Complete that classy look with a braided side bun, and be sure to add twists and texture to accentuate the overall look. What's more, you don't have to spend an hour making it. Ten minutes maximum, and you are good to go.

Half braid with curls

For the pro-braids type, you can always try half-braids with curls, which is one of the easiest party hairstyles but one of the prettiest. To do this style, plait braids horizontally across the back of the head and let them flow freely. You can add a few styled curls with a curling tong to spice up the look. Whether you have straight or curly hair, this style is sure to bring out the style and fashion in you.

Modern smooth ponytail

This style is ideal for all kinds of parties, including red carpets, cocktail parties, elite restaurant parties, and even nightclubs. And to style it, you only need to straighten your hair with a straightener or a straightening brush. You can add strands of hair and apply some gel to keep it looking glamorous. Needless to say, it won't take more than ten minutes to get it done.

Glam rock part

Glam rock part is that style that will require only a brush and silver or gold spikes, depending on what appeals to you. Here, let your hair down and part it in the middle. Create a vertical braid or two-strand twist, then go ahead to add a row of silver of gold spikes. It is particularly a good choice for people with curly or wavy hair, although straight hair will work just as well.

Pure elegance

This super feminine style is as pure as it sounds, more so because it is easy to do and maintains its elegance. To do this party hairstyle, make two or three braids and fix them with a strong hairspray, and add two to three hairpins. As you already know, loose and messy hair braids are the go-to style if you intend to show your bold side. And for sure, it will allow you to enjoy your night to the fullest, as long as you secure your hair safely.

Space buns

If you hate rushing to the ladies every time to fix your hair, space buns are the party hairstyle for you. This easy style can be made by plaiting two upside-down braids and making two buns, as easy as that. Space buns are ideal for both casual parties as well as those that require long dresses and an element of glamor.

Game of Thrones-inspired braids

This particular style is for those whose wild fantasy is to look like a princess from a fairytale. First, form two braids from the front section of your hair and twist them. Second, create two side waterfall braids. Third, tie them together (two single and one double) into a one-half ponytail. Lastly, make sure you hide elastics under the hair.


Among the easy hairstyles is tying a hair wrap around your head. And arguably, this is the most outstanding hairstyle since not many people are likely to don it. Besides, it is a cool way to show your individuality and sense of style. You can always match a headscarf with a flowing dress, although you are not limited to what you should wear along with your headdress.

Long beautiful mess

This braided ponytail will certainly look stylish, and what makes it a better option is you can style it to suit your style. Begin by making your hair wavy, and you can choose to make braid curls or ironed beach waves. Continue to braid a loose French plait and stop where you intend to make a ponytail base. Take the strands left from the French plaiting braids and create a three-strand braid. Finally, tie the rest of the hair into a ponytail and attach the plait to the pony.

Tucked under ponytail

This sleek modern style is recommended for partygoers who love to keep things simple but still want to maintain authenticity and style. Doing this style is quite simple if you follow these steps: Comb your hair straight and tie a low ponytail. However, the second time you pull your hair through the elastic, pull it partially. Wrap the ends with a hairband and fix it with pins and hairspray.

Festive bow

This style has been around for a while, but it never loses its elegance. To do it, take one section of hair from the right side and one from the left. Tie them partially with a hair elastic, and make a loop (as in tucked under ponytail). Split the loop into two and spread the hair a bit, and pin the loops. Take half of the hair from the “ponytail” to create the middle part. Now you are ready to rock the party.

Pancake braids

This party hairstyle derives its name from how it is done. Ideally, it involves pulling some hair strands out to make the braid messier and fuller. It is quite comfortable to wear, and ladies who are well acquainted with fashion love to throw in a choker and, of course, an outfit that complements the whole look. Pancakes braids are the style for you if you are the kind who loves attention at parties.

Shining bright

A list of party hairstyles cannot be complete without mentioning shining bright, a style for the bold and the beautiful. All you need to do is sprinkle some glitter on your hair and you are all set. You may choose golden or silver glitter, depending on what matches your outfit. No doubt, it is one of the best choices for a night out.

Lush ponytail

Making a lush ponytail should not take you more than three minutes, five at most. First, use a brush to make volume. Use some hairspray and lightly brush the top of your hair, leaving some hair strands to fall on your face. Wrap a strand of hair to make a ponytail, and you are good to go with one of these fun, easy hairstyles.

Short hair

If your hair is short and therefore cannot work with the party hairstyles mentioned above, don't fret because there are ways to make you look stunning. With a brush, wax, spray, and flat iron, you can design your hair by first blow-drying it with a round brush to shape it. Continue to apply some gel, then smooth and comb it into place. Sweep back the sides and spray it all over. In the next few minutes, you will be looking glamorous and ready to hit the party.
