Whether it’s because you sleep in, go straight from the gym to work, or are long overdue for a new hair dryer, sometimes, you just don’t have time for a post-shower blowout. And even though we don’t recommend opting for wet hairstyles often—it can be damaging to your strands—we don’t want you to look like a hot mess, either. So next time you’re shower-fresh and in a hurry, go for one of these styles to look totally put together—even if you’re not.
THE LOOSE TRIPLE BUN
Not only will this bun look like you spent much longer in front of the mirror than you actually did, but the loose twists will make for a faster air-dry time and give you messy waves. Get the tutorial at Hair Romance.
Wet hair can be limp and lifeless, so create the illusion of volume on your damp strands by upgrading your go-to top knot with a French braid. Get the tutorial at She Knows.
THE BRAIDED CROWN
You know the hair around your face is often the first to dry—and first to frizz up—so take care of it with this look. Get the tutorial at Brit + Co.
THE GIBSON KNOT
This might be the one exception where wet hair is easier to work with than dry hair—and you’ll have this ultra-chic tuck to show for it when you try this style. Get the tutorial at The Freckled Fox.
DUTCH BRAIDED TOP KNOT
Bonus: Top this off with a headband, and you’ll be professional in the front, party in the back. Get the tutorial at Twist Me Pretty.
THE SLICK KNOT
Fresh out of the shower and have to book it ASAP? No worries—this bun’s got you. Watch the tutorial here.
LOW MILKMAID BRAIDS
Get that wet hair off your neck and out of the way—and by the time these braids dry, you’ll go from slippery to messy-chic. Get the tutorial at …Love Maegan.
