What do you do with your hair when you find yourself rushing around to beat the clock? If you have ever stared at yourself in the mirror at a loss for what to do with your hair for the day, don’t panic—you have options.
As much as we all would love to have tons of time to spend on our hair, that isn’t a reality for most busy women. But that doesn’t mean you don’t want to look and feel as great as possible. Here are a couple of ideas for ways to style your hair in 20 minutes or less. (They will change your life!)
Putting in a tiny bit of effort at night pays off in the morning. This style works well for straight or slightly wavy hair. Dampen your hair before you go to bed. Brush your hair in the direction you want it to go. (For example: part it in the middle and brush down both sides.) Secure the brushed hair with bobby pins and cover the hair with a scarf. In the morning, remove the scarf and the pins, and you’ll find that your hair will lie down. If dampening it doesn’t help, try Ion Lusterizing Cream the evening before!
Braiding damp hair creates waves. This is perfect to give your hair a little texture in the morning. After washing hair, add a little thickening styler to damp hair, then braid your hair in sections (the more braids you have, the wavier your hair will be). The thickening styler will help add thickness and volume, create shine and decrease frizz. Take out the braids in the morning and enjoy your glossy waves.
Buns can also help create morning waves. Believe it or not, this hairstyle looks good whether you are wearing a suit or a sundress. Use a little pomade or texturizing cream to create definition, then sweep your hair into a messy bun on the top of your head. Let strands fall naturally for a free, easy look.
Low Side Pony
This style is clean, classic, and feminine, and it fits great with anything in your closet. Give yourself a side part and brush your hair over to one side. Secure the ponytail very low, almost at neck level. You can let the hair hang loosely over your shoulder or you can braid it for a unique look.
Wash and Go
This style looks differently on every hair type, but the concept is similar. After you wash, put in a little blow-dry creme serum, lightly blow-dry, and go! Today, the natural look is gaining popularity with how fresh and easy it is. Embrace your natural texture!
Doing your hair doesn’t have to take a long time. After all, you need to wake up the kids, get them ready, pack lunch, and get everyone where they need to be. Try these fast hairstyles to look and feel great while you go through your morning routine.
