Mornings are for snoozing the alarm clock and getting 10 more minutes of sleep before really starting the day. So who has time for hairstyles other than a lazy ponytail or sock bun? You do. How’s that? You just have to plan ahead.
Don’t worry—we’re not suggesting you visit the hair salon every other day. But you know how you’re always playing with your hair while watching Netflix? Put that to some good use. Sleep on it, and wake up to a ready-to-go hairstyle!
