It's summertime and the living should be easy, right? That same state of mind should apply to your hair.

Being a beauty junkie, I find this season refreshing. It's the time of the year I keep my beauty routine simple and find new ways to minimize the time it takes to get ready.

My makeup? Bare minimum. My hairstyle? Done in under a minute. Yes, you read that right — a full hairstyle in less than one minute flat. But that doesn't mean I walk out the door with a wet head (although, I have been guilty of that). There are ways to try on-trend styles without spending a ton of time on it. Here are three of my go-to looks this summer.

Flower braid

1. Twist a section of hair from each side of your head, bringing it backward and then tie together.

2. Take a section of hair underneath the elastic and braid.

Princess roll

1. Put an elastic headband around the crown of your head (even better if it matches your hair color!).
