I like the shorter styles the best for a quick messy look. The braided styles would take more than 5 minutes to do if you are not used to braiding your hair.
Of the tips, the idea of washing your hair at night seems the best. If you are showering at night you’ll be saving a lot of time in the morning, so if you oversleep it’s not as bad. Just jump in your clothes & go! (You did set our your clothes the night before, right?)
I like the idea of using headbands to fix hair, but if all else fails, how about a sleek ponytail?
