As women, we definitely want to feel like our hair looks and feels pretty. But we don’t necessarily want to have to spend our entire morning before work making it happen. Luckily, there have been some women who have discovered ways to style hair overnight (yes, while we sleep) making it possible to have pretty hair that’s basically accomplished at night. This means you’re able to catch a few extra minutes of shut-eye OR just not have to rush out of the house every morning. We hope you’re as excited as we are about this, because we’re sharing a few of our favorites!
Achieving voluminous curls isn’t really something that’s easy to achieve, until now. Yes, it’s truly possible to achieve voluminous curls as you sleep through the night. There are actually quite a few different techniques and ways to try this (just do an online search and you’ll find out!), but our favorite and easiest is placing a soft headband on your head, over your hair. Once you’ve done that taking the hair under the headband and twisting it up and around the headband. It’s recommended to do this with dry or mostly dry hair, but once you’ve done that go to sleep and wake up to just release the hair from the headband and run your fingers through the curls. Once you’ve done that you’re done!
If you’re not really a curly hair girl, but you love getting voluminous hair effortlessly we’ve got a great trick! Pulling your hair back in a ponytail (dry hair) and taking different sections within the ponytail to loosely roll downward toward the base and pinning them in to create a bun like look. Going to bed with your hair like this, waking up to release it, will leave you with an effortless look that has great volume at the ends and throughout the hair and barely took you any time at all! Of course, don’t forget to add some volumizing/texturizing spray while you’re pulling it up.
Old School Hollywood Waves
Want something a little more streamlined for your hair? You can do that overnight too! This is one of the old school, original ways to get overnight hair and can be done with damp hair. After you’ve applied a texturizing product to your hair begin by taking 1-2 inch sections (depending on what size waves you want to create), wrap the sections of hair around your fingers to create a curl once you’ve done that until the ends are at your scalp you pin the section with a bobby pin. Do that until you’ve done this process to your entire head of hair. It’s best to secure the sections by placing bobby pins in an X position to secure the hair overnight. Go to sleep with that in your hair, once you’ve woken up for the day you simply remove the bobby pins and brush your hair through softly until you’re happy with the waves.
