You have to be at work by 8:30am, it’s currently 7am and you don’t even know what day it is. Girls on the go are always looking for timesaving hacks to make their morning routine flow much more smoothly than the last minute scramble to get ready and go. So if you are one of these girls, these fast and easy hair and makeup hacks will have you ready, and looking great in no time.
1. Beachy Waves with Natural Makeup
Strapped for time in the morning? Try some effortless and loose waves. This beachy look will have you looking relaxed, refreshed and ready to start your day. All you need is a curling iron, some hairspray and a little scrunching. Pair this hairstyle with a fresh and natural makeup look and let your inner beauty shine through.
To get the look: Loosely curl your hair in sections and apply hairspray to hold the curls in place. Once the hair is curled, run your fingers through the waves separating the curls and scrunch to create a messy and textured look.
Hair Hack: Use a sea salt spray to add more grit and texture to the hairstyle.
2. Messy Top Knot with Bold Makeup
I woke up like this – is reality. Messy is the new chic! There’s no perfectly undone hairstyle quite like the messy topknot bun. All you need is a hair elastic, hairspray and bobby pins. Pair this look with bold lips and brows to add emphasis to your fun hairstyle.
To get the look: Gather all of your hair into a high ponytail, on the last loop of the hair tie, leave the ends out. Use hairspray and bobby pins to strategically gather the loose ends around the bun. Final step is to mess it up. Tug at it to add volume and create a loose looking bun.
Hair Hack: Set your style with hairspray.
3. Low Ponytail with Day-to-Night Makeup
Simplicity is key when it comes to this hairstyle. This flirty and ultra-feminie ponytail is a quick and easy style that can be switched up depending on the occasion. All you need is a hair elastic and a comb. Pair this look with light shimmery eye look for the day, and a smoky dark eye for the night.
To get the look: Tease the crown of your head to add volume to the front. Bring your hair down into a low ponytail and secure with hair elastic.
Hair Hack: Grab a small piece of your hair and wrap it around the ponytail to cover the hair elastic for a more sophisticated and elegant look.
Now it’s your turn to master these quick and easy hair and makeup combinations. These stylish looks will save you time during your busy morning beauty routine. After all, less time getting ready in the morning leaves more time for snoozing.
