Curly Hair Time Saving Tips For A Lazy Day
Tip #1 Braids while you sleepSkip the morning rustle and bustle by braiding your hair the night before. Mist your hair with a little water, lightweight spray or gel and braid your hair accordingly. Take them out when you wake up, and you’re ready to go in minutes.
Tip #2 Create the messy lookPulling your hair back is always a go-to time saver, but be sure to keep it low and loose around your ear area. Using bobby pins to pin curls randomly will create the no effort messy bun look everyone loves! As long as you are sure to keep it loose, your bobby pins will disappear in the hair.
Tip #3 Set it up highWhen your hair is about 95% dry, pile it on top of your head and scrunch it up a bit, it does not have to be neat, it can be messy and add a clip to secure your hair. When your hair is thoroughly dry, let it down, and your curls will come out softer, looser, and will help to take a lot of bulk out of long hair. Note: While the hair is wet, be sure to use a gel or spray before clipping the hair
Tip #4 Add hair accessoriesAdding a barrette, or headband to spice up your hairstyle is always a quick and easy alternative! The key is wearing the right hair accessory with the right hairstyle. Hair accessories can change your look without you having to make a drastic change. Adding a pretty barrette can make your two-minute ponytail look chic and put together. While headbands are all about adding texture to your hairstyle.
