5 Easy Hairstyles That Look Like You Made an Effort

Elegant cuts for the suave you.

Woke up with not much time to prepare your hair? Here are fast (and dashing!) hair pegs from celebrities will make you office-ready in seconds. Just show any of these cuts to your friendly neighborhood barber, and you're good to go! Here are the most popular and the easiest to style-and-wear new hairstyles you should try, ASAP.

1| Messy Layers

If you are aiming for that I-don't-give-a-damn-about-my-hair-but-I-still-look-handsome look, then this one's for you. If you have thick, medium-length unruly hair and you don't want to cut it short, ask your barber to give your 'do some texture through layering. Once you have that layered medium-length hair, the messy styling becomes easier. How? Just tousle it using your hands after taking a bath, and there you have it, a casual yet polished messy finish.

2| Preppy Side Part



Achieve that polished and professional look with his signature preppy side part haircut. First, have your barber cut in the parting to keep it defined and easier to style. Now, when you're at home, simply comb your hair to the side, then apply your chosen hair product (just avoid anything too heavy as it will leave you with a heavy, greasy finish) and comb it to your hair, leaving you with a sleek side part.

3| Mid Fade

Long on top with short sides and back, emit that suave vibe and get a mid fade haircut like Coco Martin. Instruct your barber to keep the sides and back short, and keep the mid part of your hair long. Apply a firm holding hair product on the mid part of your locks for maximum style. Better yet, make that part wavy and textured so all eyes will be focused on what's happening on top.

4| Short and Spiky Quiff 

Short and spiky, Sam Milby's quiff haircut combines the best of both worlds. It's messy and sleek all at once. This is the ideal hairstyle if you want low maintenance that delivers every time. Styling it won't be that much of hassle, too. Just add volume and height (by the spikes) to the longer top section of your hair by using your chosen hair product, and that's it, you're ready to go!

5| Middle Part Curtain


Feel like a '90s boyband frontman and don this reliable middle part hairstyle, also known as curtains, currently sported by James Reid. This one is probably the easiest hairstyles from this list. If you have medium to long hair, just part your 'do to the left and right from the center of the top of the head, so that a line is visible running across the midst of the head. You can use a hair product to keep it still, but that's optional. Whether you have short sides and back, or have medium to long length hair overall, this one's a must-try.
