Styling Your Hair The Night Before
Let’s face it… getting up and getting ready every morning can be a difficult task. Especially during these winter months when it’s darker in the morning, and cold outside – not exactly a recipe to get us to jump out of bed in the morning. We’re all about catching a few extra zzz’s this time of year (and any time of the year, if we’re really honest), and we’re always looking to find ways to save time in the morning without sacrificing how we look and feel before heading out the door. We found some fun tips to styling your hair the night before – and we’re sharing them with you now.
Want bouncy curls? One of the best ways we’ve discovered you can style your hair the night before to achieve this hairstyle is to utilize those foam donut shaped tools that many women use to create that perfect bun hair style. You’re actually going to secure your hair split up into two sections using two different foam pieces in your hair. Although instead of using them to secure your hair tightly into a bun, you’re going to want to do so loosely instead. Wrap the hair around the foam smoothly, and it’s best when done with hair that’s ALMOST dry.
So you want to wake up to have beachy waves just like that, huh? Well…you can! The beachy wave look has always been admired and sometimes it can seem like it’s a hairstyle that has to take hours to actually accomplish. The good news is, you can truly style your hair simply at night and wake up to this beachy wave hair style look you’ve been looking for. The best way to achieve this look is to style your hair in two French braids using all of your hair. It’s suggested to NOT style these French braids tightly, and in fact aim for creating the braid more loosely. Bring the braid down as far as you can to the ends, go to bed with your hair styled like that and just let them loose in the morning and you’ll have gorgeous beachy waves.
So many hair styling tips we found for doing the night before were related to textured hair styles in some way, but we realized that you may want to just have nice smooth, straight hair sometimes. Fortunately, we found a great way to style your hair the night before and achieve a smooth, straight hair look. All you do is pull all of your hair to one side of your head. It will have a flat surface of hair, and simply add a few bobby pins where you need to in order to hold your hair in that manner. To finish this off you’re going to need to secure a silk scarf over all of our hair and head before heading to bed. From there you should be able to wake up to smooth, straight hair as you head out the door.
