As a hair product and style enthusiast, I certainly don’t mind spending the time needed to properly coif my hair in the morning, but everyone has those days where you just have to get out the door. Whether that means you are working with day-three hair (hello, Dry Wash®!) or you only have enough time to run a comb through your wet locks before you start your morning commute, I have a few tricks that will transform your ran-out-of-time style. Consider these hair hacks:
Prop up your ponytail. Pull your hair back into a ponytail and insert two bobbypins halfway into the elastic, on the underside of your ponytail. The result is a fuller, more voluminous upstyle.
Braid It. A simple three-part braid is not only an acceptable look for the office, school or a day of running errands, it’s also quick and easy! Put your hair into a simple braid and gently pull the pieces outwards to widen the braid and give the effect of fuller, thicker hair.
Pin It. One of my favorite on-the-go styles is achieved with just a few bobby pins. Simply section the top portion of your hair from the bottom, twist the top section to the right and insert three bobby pins toward the left to lock the mini-twist in place.
Even on the mornings when your alarm doesn’t go off or you sleep right through it, you don’t have to sacrifice style. Simply keep an elastic, a few bobby pins and Dry Wash readily available and you’ll be work, school or party-ready with little effort.
