Back to School Hair Tips (For Anyone Who’d Rather Go Back to Sleep)

Back to School Hair Tips (For Anyone Who’d Rather Go Back to Sleep)

Posted by Team John Paul Mitchell Systems® on Jul 31st 2019

Back to School? More like back to bed, am I right? If you prioritize a few extra minutes of sleep over a first day flex, you’ve come to the right place. We’re rounding up our top time-saving hair tips for anyone who’s more experienced with a snooze button than a curling iron. Too much snooze, leaves a limited amount of styling time. Lucky for you, we’re rounding up tips on how to get quick and easy hairstyles for school that don’t look like you were in a time crunch to pull them off.

How to Cut Down Hair Drying Time

You may think there’s no easy hack to cut down drying time—and thankfully you would be wrong. With fan-favorites like Paul Mitchell® Super Skinny Serum and Awapuhi Wild Ginger No Blowout HydroCream, we offer some of the best products for drying hair faster. Our Super Skinny Serum is a bestseller with an enthusiastic cult-following for a reason: this super styling product will tame frizz and help you blow dry hair faster, so that you get gorgeous silky-smooth results in less time than your average blow dry.

If you’re lucky enough to have naturally straight or beautifully textured hair that doesn’t need much styling reinforcement, pick up our No Blowout HydroCream, which will help you air dry hair faster, twice as fast* as your hair would dry on its own. This lightweight styling cream is a heavy-hitter that speeds up air-drying, while preventing frizz and defining natural texture in the process.

How to Prep Hair for a Second-Day Slay

If you really want to roll out of bed and be ready to quickly style and go, you need a dry shampoo you can depend on. Our Dry Shampoo Foam from Awapuhi Wild Ginger is one of our newest and best dry shampoos. This fast-drying lightweight foam absorbs oil to leave hair feeling fresh without any unwanted chalky residue. With KeraTriplex® technology and natural awapuhi extract, our Dry Shampoo Foam also helps balance moisture and eliminate frizz for a soft, healthy-looking finish.

If you’ve had bad experiences with the lingering white residue of dry shampoos past, our Invisiblewear® Brunette and Blonde Dry Shampoos, will help you fall in love again. Both super-finely tinted dry shampoos absorb oil while providing undetectable coverage for a range of both light and dark hair tones. It’ll keep your blowout feeling and looking fresh.

How to Heat Things Up (in 60 Seconds)

Maybe you have high hair aspirations but are short on time. We respect that go-big mentality, and thankfully, our Pro Tools™ line of styling products, designed to help you style smarter, does, too. Our tools, like our bestselling Express Ion Smooth®+ Flat Iron and Express Gold Curl Curling Irons, heat up quickly and evenly, so you can get a jump on smoothing and styling strands. Grab your go-to styling tool and then get some ideas for quick and easy hairstyles for school, here.
