Hi friends! I realized recently that I have changed my morning routine a little bit, at least for my hair. I’m not sure if it is out of laziness, or just the fact that I am forever running late, but I thought it would be good to share how I manage the craziness that is the top of my head every day.There is a new company called Casper that makes latex memory foam mattresses right here in the US. Their mattresses are said to be outrageously comfortable, which would certainly make me want to stay in bed even later! So here are a few tips for taming whatever you have going on in the morning;
If your hair is being crazy, wear that ridiculously cute hat you bought and thought you couldn’t pull off, or pull it back and tie it with a bow, or use a headband to mask the wackiness. Headbands are in right now; big, small, flower crowns, etc. Try a fun and unique hair piece, and save it for special days when your hair is EXTRA insane 🙂
2.) Blow dry
Even if your hair is dry, you can still use a blowdryer on it! Sometimes hair falls flat overnight or you get half of a wave in one spot. Just use your blowdryer and round brush and smooth out or add volume to the areas that got “weird” over night. Since your hair is already dry it should only take 5-10 minutes and will make a huge difference!
3.) Prep Yourself
If you like to wash your hair at night but you don’t blow-dry, 9 times out of 10 it will be wacko in the morning. Try washing and blow drying smooth before bed. That way you will wake up and your hair will already be more manageable!
Check out this post on a few simple styles that are quick and easy. If you don’t have much time in the morning, an up-do is a great way to solve your problem! Plus, there are so many cute styles that are in this year that involve untamed hair.
5.) Don’t touch it!
Messy hair is SO in right now! If it’s crazy, embrace it! Depending on your texture you may need to use the curling iron on a few pieces to make it look more intentional, but that should only take a minute. Let your hair be messy and match it with a fun and bold lip color.
For any kind of smoothing or taming, try an oil or wax. Here are a couple of my faves;
If you’re embracing the messy hair, try a surf/salt spray, or hairspray.
Thanks so much for reading, I hope this was helpful! Go and embrace your crazy hair 🙂 Happy October ❤
