6 5-Minute Hairstyles for Long Hair

If only "long hair, don't care" were so easy. Having a long, flowing mane certainly has its perks, but when it comes to getting ready in the morning—especially in a rush—it turns out there's a lot to care for. Lengthy locks are more tangle-prone and likely to show signs of bedhead and being unwashed than their shorter counterparts.

Waist-skimming tresses take more of an effort to make presentable, requiring more product to tame and more time to style. If you have an enviable head of long hair, mornings with few spare minutes are not your friend. To get your hair looking ready to take on the day and to get you out the door in no time, here are six five-minute hairstyles for long hair. See our picks below and get inspired to take on tomorrow morning, starting with your long locks.
