Five minutes styles : Pigtails on Adults
I find it very amusing when I am mistaken for a child. One of those annoying gas company people actually asked me, 'Is your mummy in?' Seriously even with pigtails, I have far too much going on in the chest and hip area to be a kid.
The question of the day is what is your five minute hairstyle? Prior preparation is not allowed. You have exactly five minutes to style your hair...........go!

I wanna see a picture!! ;)ReplyDelete
High puff. I moisturize & then slick my hair back w/ eco styler. Then I use one of those stretchy head bands and wrap it around my puff twice.ReplyDelete
I love that Pippi stamp! My five minute hairstyle is my puff. I throw on a super-duper extra stretched ouchless band, wrap it around twice and voila....puff! It works on wet or dry hair and there is no other tools or prep necessary! *High Five to the PUFF* :)
A puff! Or split ponytails (where one is on top of t'other)ReplyDelete
Pippi Langstrumpfe! Ha ha.ReplyDelete
My go-to hairstyle is the "tuck and roll" made popular by kimmaytube. It is simple, quick, stylish, and protective!
One day Thandi :)ReplyDelete
Fatty Bamboo, Mikimu and Simple thing- Puff is quite popular!
Camille - I am currently watching Pippi Langstrumpf in German! Trying to improve my vocabulary!
My hair likes to coil in on itself,so when it's not in twists, it looks like a rather unkempt twa.ReplyDelete
On an aside - Jc, don't blame the poor dude. Children of today look older than their parents, big sisters.... everyone!!!
My five minute styles are a puff or simple updo.ReplyDelete
-I usually do a puff after taking out tuck-and-roll updo. I spritz my hair, smooth it upwards and tie it up with a black knee high stocking.
-I normally do it on an old twist out or something. Here is a video describing the style(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8ibev2iqk8).
Bun all the way!ReplyDelete
Puff! Hands down!ReplyDelete
Same! I find that it looks less kiddy if I don't do the part in the center (which I never do; it's always off to the side), and I do something with the front. For example, I'll fat twist the very front on each side, or do them in twists to look like bangs. This week, my hair is in six or so big twists, and I have the twists up into pigtail buns. But a small front section on one side is in slightly smaller twists so it looks like bangs on one side...ReplyDelete
Two cornrows down. I get them dome in less than 5 minutes. BADA BING!ReplyDelete
Can we see a pic of your hair, JC? Please :)
Bun. I'll then tie a satin scarf around my edges and leave that on until I arrive at my destination.ReplyDelete
Thanks for all the replies!ReplyDelete
Aha, I will try an off centre part Courtney!
Lofa - Two rows in 5 minutes! My hair would not cooperate for that. Nope for the pic :)
Moni - Good to 'see' you here :)
I have two 5 minute styles. The ever so popular puff of course, or a pomapador (probably not spelled right sorry) with a beanie/tam covering the rest.ReplyDelete
Celtic knot. Does that count? I need only 30 sec.ReplyDelete
But I need 4 minutes to choose which hairstick to use. *lol*
I also love sporting pigtails ;)ReplyDelete
2 Ponytails is my go to air-drying style - though I've been known to take the look outdoors, much to the horror of my 14 y/o sister! My regular go to 5 minute style is the puff...of late I've been wearing it to the side to give it a little funk!ReplyDelete
Low knot with a hairstick.ReplyDelete
I'm in locs and do a single ponytail with what I'll call "backwards bangs" You know, the one where the bangs are off your face and make a little bump at the top of your head that you have to use bobby pins with?ReplyDelete
My daughter's hair is loose and my go-to style for her when we're late is "pom-poms" Essentially, it's two baby puffs.
Great question and love the answers!
I wish you had a pic!!ReplyDelete
i do 4 big braids and tie them back so yes i look like a kid too lol
BIG fan of Pippi Longstocking :o)
....ahh the memories
I wear my hair in pigtails sometimes and i dont really care about what people think! After all it is MY hair! and i look GOOD! lol!ReplyDelete
