A Month of No Heat Hairstyles

I'm finishing up my Back to School series with a request! If you've asked for hairstyles that are easy, quick, and require no heat, then you'll love today's post. I've got a month (31 days) of hairstyles just for you! Enjoy!

Before We Begin:
  • These are mostly classic hairstyles, with a few fun ones thrown in.
  • Hairstyles are shown in no particular order.
  • I suggest having bobby pins, dry shampoo, hairspray, hair elastics, a hair brush, and teasing comb/brush.
  • If these are too basic for you, no worries! I have plans for more months of no heat hairstyles.
  • Since I have long hair and no bangs, naturally my hairstyles are geared towards that. Many of these can be modified for other lengths of hair.
  • If I've shared a hairstyle before, it is linked. Click the link for more pictures and step-by-step instructions.

1. Bun Waves--Wrap damp hair in 2-3 buns. Once dry, you'll have loose waves.
2. Triple Bun--Divide hair in 3 sections. Make 3 buns and pin.
3. Pony Twist--Pull hair into a pony but leave one section out. Twist remaining section and wrap around hair elastic. Secure with bobby pin.
4. Double Braid Headband--Take 2 small sections of hair from both sides of your face. Braid and pull across top of head and secure with pins.
5. Flip Pony Bun--Make a pony and pull hair back through. Wrap into bun.
6. Side Braid--Make a braid on chosen side of your hair.
7. Braided Half Updo--Take 2 small sections of hair from both sides of face and braid. Place across back of head and secure.

8. Milkmaid Braids--Divide hair in half and braid each half. Pull up and over each side of head and secure.
9. Low Big Bun--Use a sock or hair donut.
10. Low, Sleek Pony--Make a pony at neckline. Use serum or cream to smooth.
11. Side Bun--Pull hair into side pony and wrap into bun.
12. Rope Braid--Divide hair into 2 sections. Twist each in opposite directions and wrap around each other.
13. Messy Bun--Gather hair at top of head and secure.
14. Princess Bun--Use a sock or hair donut.

15. Loop Waves--Twist hair into loops and pin on top of head. Allow to dry for loose waves.
16. Waterfall Braid--Click for tutorial.
17. Braided Bun-- Divide hair into 2 or 3 sections and braid each one. Form into a braid.
18. High Pony--Make a low pony and pull the "tail" up to give your pony some height.
19. Headband Side Pony--Side pony with a headband.
20. Knot Pull Back--Take a section from each side of your head and tie into a knot (or more). Secure.
21. Hidden Side Twist--Take a section and divide in half. Twist and pin back. Pull hair over the twist to hide.

22. Fishtail Braid--Click for tutorial. Want a video? Let me know!
23. Sponge Rollers--Roll the ends of hair into sponge rollers for easy curls. Mine are from Ebay.
24. Knot Bun--Hair is divided into 2 sections and tied in a knot. Repeat this step an additional time or two. Secure with bobby pins.
25. Hair Bow--Take two sections and tie into a bow. Secure with pins.
26. Double Twist Side Pony--Divide hair in half, and then half again. Twist each half and bring into one pony.
27. Side Twist Bun--Twist a section of hair and wrap around side bun.
28. Double Side Twist--Make twists on both sides of head and secure with pins.
29. 3-in-1 Braid--Divide hair into 3 sections. Braid each and then make the 3 braids one big braid by braiding them together.

Which hairstyle is your fave?

PS: I've got 2 amazing giveaways for you to enter:


  1. You always have the coolest tutorials. And such pretty hair too!

  2. Great tutorial! The side pony has long been my "go to." As of late, I'm leaning more toward the styles featuring a top knot. xo T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  3. what a cool idea! you are making envy my hair are so short

  4. #7 is my favorite, but I think you look amazing with any of the ones with a bun!

  5. My hair is too short for all those.. off topic, remember you had some problems with your hand at some point, so you took a break from typing? A friend seems to experience something similar, what did you do to make it better?

  6. Thanks for all the hair ideas! I don't have a lot of time before work to do my hair so I'm definitely trying some of these :)

  7. Wow! I didn't know there were so many things you could do with your hair. I'll have to try the flip pony bun. That looks pretty and easy.

  8. I'm all for easy hairstyles, although with my short hair, there's not much I can do, haha!

  9. I will have to take a stab at trying some of these. I never do anything with my hair except blowing it out or curling it. Pony tales give me a headache. But one of these styles could work.

    Life in a Break Down

  15. Thank you so, so much for posting this.You lifesaver!! Xxx

  16. These are awesome, I don't like using heat on my hair all the time so I have to try some of these on those days that I don't use heat. I really like all the different braid hair styles you showed, so fun! :)


  17. You're making me wish I had longer hair Elle! These are great! I'd love all the buns.

  20. Great job Elle! I didn't know you already posted 30 no heat tutorials! I have to try a few soon!

    Chic 'n Cheap Living

  21. I have always been very boring, completely hopeless when it comes to hair matters but I am going to give these a try soon! Love it!

  22. I adore the braided half updo, cant wait to see the tutorial on that!

  23. You are too cute. I love so many of these styles, but growing up with curly hair & now that I straighten it - I don't like to wear any curly styles these days.

  24. This fabulous post is going onto my bookmarks! Love these ideas.

  25. Loving all of this everyday inspiration!!!

  26. I love the idea of no-heat hairstyles- especially since it's going to be super hot for the next few weeks and I can even imagine sitting under a dryer! :)

    Great post, Elle!


  27. Hey gorgeous! I need a step by step tutorial. I'm bored with my hair. Hahaha Can you feature maybe 2-3 styles step by step?


  28. Great idea! These hairstyles are so cute and look relatively simple (probably when I try some of them, they'll be harder than it seems). A majority of the time during the week, I don't blow dry my hair, so I'll have to try some of the styles!

    Have a great day!

    1. I don't have anyone willing to model for me for short hairstyles. Some of the ideas can be applied to shorter hair. Thank you for your sweet words. :)
