Sometimes the energy and time it takes to do your hair is too much, especially if you have curls that tend to have a mind of their own. Luckily, wash-and-go styles are quick and look just as good as a full wash-and-style day. Plus, as a mini protective look, you can wear them for multiple days. Ahead, 11 chic wash-and-go hairstyles to inspire your fall season. @patternbeauty

Jumbo Twists

For those with lots of density and length, jumbo twists will be the wash-and-go style for you. Start by detangling your hair and raking in a curl pudding or cream for moisture retention. Finish by plaiting hair in a two-strand twist.

Half Up, Half Down

For a fuss-free wash-and-go, place half your hair up and let the rest hang. This style works for fancy nights out as well. Simply add in a hair bow or scarf to jazz things up.

Bantu Knots

Bantu knots are one of the quickest wash-and-gos out there. Depending on how small or big you want the knots, section out hair in either circles, triangles, or squares and roll hair into a ball. Secure knots with a bobby pin or hair tie.

Accessorize It

Headbands, hair pins, or hair scarf, sometimes all you need is an accessory. To make your hair scarf really pop, feel free to add in edge designs.

High Volume Pony

When you simply can’t be bothered with doing your hair, why not throw it all up? With a round flat brush, slick back the hair into a high pony and let your natural curls roam free. If you’d like more volume, you can always tease hair with a pick.

Two-Strand Twists

Requiring just a comb and curl pudding, two-strand twists are a go-to style for naturals. Plus, depending on your hair length, they typically take 10 to 30 minutes to do and can be worn in a variety of styles.

Space Buns

Whether you pull all the hair up or just half of it, space buns — the Y2K throwback — are not going anywhere this season. Make sure hair is fully detangled to comb or brush the buns into position and then spritz a hair oil for a shiny finish.

Twist Out

Allow your twists to stay in for at least a week to achieve this hydrated twist out. Work in a curl refresh or pudding every couple days to revive curls and restore moisture.

Diffused Curls

A wash-and-go can be a fast process, but without the right products and tools, it can quickly become frizzy. For an effortless look, spritz hair with a texturizing spray and lightly diffuse for 5 to 10 minutes. Start at roots and then scrunch hair to dry the ends.

Flat Twists

Ideal for special occasions and weekend brunch, flat twists will be a go-to style this fall for all fashion girlies. Part hair to your liking and work in a two- or three-strand twist to achieve this neat hairstyle.
