Primping is usually the last thing on our minds when we're headed to the airport… unless you can call tossing your hair up into a dirty bun "primping." We're far more focused on details like being on schedule, making sure our bag weighs less than 50 pounds (a constant struggle), getting through security, and—should time allow—traversing the terminal in search of a passable meal. 

But it's always a good idea to look relatively nice, especially if you have somewhere you need to be immediately upon landing. Which is why we decided to hunt down a handful of hairstyles that meet some specific criteria:

1. They have to be quick. (Like, less than 30 seconds.)

2. They have to be comfortable. Because a seven-hour flight is rough enough without a throbbing scalp.

3. On that note, they have to be nap-friendly. A poorly positioned ponytail or bun might prevent you from leaning your head back all the way on your seat, and we can't have that.

4. They have to last. Don't worry—none of these styles are contingent on your hair's ability to hold a curl.
