So, You Overslept: 3 Steps for Quick & Easy Hair

You turned your alarm off instead of hitting the snooze button – we’ve all been there. And now you have mere minutes to pull yourself together and head out the door. Luckily, you planned out your outfit the night before (smart thinking). But what about your hair?


First, get rid of grease. Whoever said “diamonds are a girl’s best friend” never met dry shampoo. Just spray with abandon and brush through. Don’t have any? Baby powder and matte bronzer (for brunettes) will also do.

Next, grab an elastic and throw hair into a messy bun. Once it’s up, add a few bobby pins to shape the bun to your liking. The best part about this style? It holds best with a little grunge.

Lastly, do a quick mirror check. If your hair still looks greasy, pull a Blair Waldorf and pop on a wide headband for instant polish. There. You might even have time for that cup of coffee now.
