Is the school bus always leaving without you? Do you sneak in ten minutes late to those 9am lectures? Let ghd save you some time in the morning with our Back to School Hairstyles.

These quick and easy hairstyles will not only help with your timekeeping (maybe even allowing for an extra ‘snooze’ on your alarm clock?!) but you’ll look smart and stylish whilst doing so.

Stay top of the class this semester with our five favourite back to school styles – one for each day of the week!

Crown Braid


Mondays are a struggle for the best of us, so keep your hair routine to a minimum with some Sunday night prep. 

Before you go to bed, straighten your hair with the new ghd platinum+ styler. Our newest styler not only predicts your hair’s needs; it constantly adapts to ensure the optimum styling temperature at all times, meaning you can style in just one stroke. When your alarm goes off, quickly run over any kinks you might have slept on and you’re good to go!


Perfecting the messy bun is an art. Ideal for second or third day hair, adding in ghd root lift spray will provide the perfect textured base for this bedhead look.

Sweep your hair up into a high ponytail, then twist the hair round into a bun and secure with grips – it’s that easy! You may even have time to accessorise!

On Wednesdays, we wear bows

Adding accessories is a simple way to spice up any hairstyle. Perfect for when you should have left 5 minutes ago; tie up your tresses with a seasonal velvet bow - you could even opt for your uniform colours if you’re feeling matchy!

Vintage inspired yet timeless, keep it cute in class with this simple style.

Throwback Thursday

Throw it back to playground days with this playful crown braid. Another style you can start the night before, sleep in your braids to literally achieve the ‘I woke up like this’ look.

Secure in place with some grips and add to the textured look by loosening some locks around your face.

Boho Waves with Micro Braid


Dress down Fridays? Feel-good Fridays? Friday really is the best day isn’t it? Let your hair down and wave hello to the weekend!

Prepping your hair with ghd curl hold spray will ensure your style lasts all day and night, so when that bell rings you can head straight to the party! Craft your curls with the ghd platinum+; glide the styler vertically through your hair to keep your waves loose, and alternate the direction of each curl for the ultimate beachy texture.
