Deciding on a back-to-school hairstyle is never easy. There are an overload of options, and when you add in the potential for updos and dye jobs, you could basically change up your look every day of the week. If you're struggling to decide on the perfect new hairstyle or you're feeling oh so indecisive about your official return-to-school hair debut, we've got you covered.
From the rainbow-hued hair of BTS to a short lob made for mornings that are a time crunch, these nine back-to-school hairstyle options may make your back-to-school morning routine a little easier. Unfortunately, we can't take any of your pop quizzes for you, but we can round up some of our favorite celebrity-inspired back-to-school hairstyles.
Hit the snooze one too many times? This slicked-back style is perfect for a rushed morning. Plus, when paired with your OOTD, your ensemble will look like it took hours to complete, instead of actual minutes. To get Bella Hadid's look, just use your fave gel and comb the hair back.
Undercuts are an edgy option for making a subtle change in your hairstyle. Sydney Park of The Perfectionists debuted this tiny shave, which can easily take center stage when your hair is pulled into an updo or when you wear your hair down.
Add some BTS-inspired color.
A photograph of BTS is all you really need when it comes to deciding on a back-to-school style. Their outfits already provide enough inspiration for our daily wardrobe choices, and their colorful hair was made for those who want to make a change, but aren't ready to go full neon with their dye.
If you are feeling bold, Halsey's rainbow bangs might be the style for you. You'd probably want to enlist the help of a stylist for this intricate coloring process, but you could always take this style one step further and add rainbow to the rest of your hair too.
For even more potential dye inspiration, you may want to look to Billie Eilish. She dyed her roots neon green, and left the rest of her hair a shade of black. Again, this is one intricate style that you may want to seek out a hairstylist for.
Pop of color
Of course, you could always do a DIY dye job and take a cue from Lana Condor's splash of purple. For this red carpet appearance, the actor chose a small section of her hair to dye purple. The best part about this color? Lana used Overtone, a coloring conditioner that can easily be used at home.
Curls just wanna have fun
Have some fun with your bangs, and your hair, and try a curly updo inspired by Yara Shahidi. This look is all about embracing your ringlets, and after pulling the hair together for a bun, the actor left pieces out to frame her face.
Short and sweet
The thought of chopping your hair can seem downright daunting, but Kylie Jenner and Dua Lipa made a serious case for the lob. There's something undeniably sleek about these straight, short styles, and this one, like a slicked-back style, requires just a brush-through and some time in the mirror.
Space buns are a celebrity staple, and have appeared on the heads of everyone from Selena Gomez to Ariana Grande. Gigi Hadid's look is particularly fun, as her buns were a little looser and messier than the traditional space buns. You can copy Gigi's style for your BTS routine or take a cue from Selena and top it off with scrunchies.
