1. Degrease and Go
For those of you have light tones, you can easily run some baby powder through your hair to eliminate some of the grease before you blow dry or flat iron the ends; then just head out the door without any fuss.
2. Spray and Sprint
For those with curls, a quick spritz of the water bottle, followed by some gel and a short blow with the diffuser will get you out the door fast. Your hair will dry quickly and no ponytail will be needed. Your hair will look great all day.
3. Wear a Headband
Headbands can be very forgiving for those when your hair a mess, especially for girls with bangs or fly-aways. Run your brush through the back and then push in your headband. Ten seconds and you are ready to head out the door!
4. Front Poof
You can easily poof up the front and clip it into place leaving the back hanging. This can save you tons of time in front of the mirror. Just don’t take the poof too high or you will end up looking like Snookie… that’s just wrong.
5. Loose Ponytail
The loose ponytail is the fastest way out the door. This is a great late morning or mid-day save for tired hair. Mix up the plain ponytail by adding a fun clip or a flower in the back. Tie the ponytail with a ribbon or accent it with a sparkly bobby pin.
