We all have those mornings where we seem to have less time than usual. Maybe we’re moving slower, maybe we pressed snooze one too many times. Whatever the reason, these are the mornings you need to get prepared for, because while you know you’ve had to get ready in a rush, you don’t want everyone else to know!

Hair extensions can help you to add length and volume, but they can also help you to quickly achieve a stylish hairdo on those mornings when you’ve only got five minutes to fix your hair.

We’ve picked 5 hairstyles and found 5 hair extension solutions for when you’ve only got minutes to get ready.

The sleek side pony

All you need is a ponytail hair extension and you can achieve this style quickly and easily. Start with dry hair and backcomb hair at the crown to add a little lift. Take a pea sized amount of serum or gel and gently comb through the hair to smooth the top, taking care not to remove any of the volume at the crown. Gather the length and tie in a low pony at the nape of the neck, making sure it’s tidy and smooth. Then move the pony slowly to the side, to behind the ear. Fix the ponytail extension over your natural locks and wear over the shoulder. Spray and smooth any stray strands.The top knot

We know how easy this style is when you need to get ready quickly. But a ponytail hair extension, or clip on hair extensions, can add a little more volume to your top knot. Gather hair onto the crown and fasten. Tie the ponytail extension or clip on extensions. Then start to twist hair. Start by rolling around your fore finger and keep going until you reach the tips. Pin in place and spray to secure.

Textured pony

A simple way to update your plain and boring ponytail is to add a little texture. Use clip on hair extension to add a little volume. Start by backcombing at the crown. Instead of pulling hair into a ponytail in one go, do it in section. This helps to add texture and it means you don’t lose any volume. Tie the ponytail high. Back comb the pony itself as well and add a little serum to the ends.
