Nothing is more frustrating than oversleeping or running late to work and knowing that you still need to style your hair. Whether you take a shower every morning and have to go through the pain of blow drying your entire head or just have to style your bedhead after a night of beauty sleep, hair styling takes up a lot of your precious time in the morning! If you work in an office in a role as a secretary or for one of many in-office medical scribe services, it’s important that you look and feel your best during a long day of work; both of which can be difficult after a rough morning attempting to style your hair in a hurry.
Keep reading for a few simple tips on how to cut down styling time in the morning.
- Overnight Curls
Multi-task by styling your hair while you sleep! One of the easiest ways to do this is by opting for some overnight curls, which can be done by tying wet hair into braids after a shower, or with the use of foam rollers. Simply set your hair in place before you sleep, and take them out when you wake! Plus, these heatless curls are much better for your hair than styling with a blow dryer or traditional curling iron.
- Sleep With Wet Hair
If your hair does not hold overnight curls well or you would rather go for a sleek, straight look but don’t have time for a full blowout or to use a proper straightener, many hairstylists recommend going to sleep with your wet to damp hair in a low ponytail (use a scrunchie or plastic claw clip to ensure that there won’t be a crease from the ponytail holder), then blow drying in the morning. This will cut down on drying time as your hair will not be soaking wet, but will still allow you to get a fresh, blown-out look.
- When in Doubt, Try a Ponytail
If you’ve tried everything to get an elegant hairstyle with minimal effort in the morning but nothing seems to work, there’s no shame in opting for a ponytail. Whether you embrace your bedhead with a messy low ponytail or opt for a sleek, high ponytail that looks elegant with little effort, this is a great way to take care of your hair in a rush.
