If your clients aren't morning people and don't have time to do much with their hair in the morning, there are a few styles you can recommend to keep them looking stylish, and it doesn't take that long to do. According to Vanessa Fernandez of Butterfly Studio Salon, here are a few tips and tricks that can be done in a jiffy!

HOW-TO: 30 Second Hair Tips For Buns, Braids and Waves!TOUSLED BUN: For a quick messy/chic look, try using the natural texture of your client's hair and a texture spray (like Davines For Wizards No. 14 Sea Salt Primer) to create separation. Flip the head upside down; spray, scrunch, and smooth the hair up, twisting it until it’s in a bun shape. Secure with a hair tie.

HOW-TO: 30 Second Hair Tips For Buns, Braids and Waves!SIDE PART/SMALL PINNED BRAID: This is a great style to get hair out of your face quickly and still look cute. Using naturally air dried hair, create a deep side part and craft a braid using three small sections of hair and pulling towards the back of the head. Secure with two bobby pins by crossing one over the other.

INSTANT WAVES: Set hair in two braids can create natural waves. Tell your clients to leave their hair about 15 percent dry, and apply a texture cream and divide hair into two sections. Create one braid on each side, allowing both sections to sit for several hours. Remove braids, flip head over and shake out for beautiful, wavy hair. Apply a medium-hold hairspray to keep waves flowing.
