We all have busy schedules and find it harder and harder to make time for things in our lives. Spending time in the morning getting ready is sometimes more than our timelines can handle. Doing extras like awesome makeup looks and cool hairstyles is way too much to handle especially if we are running behind. No problem, we have found amazingly easy hairstyles for you to do the night before so your morning is stress free.

Lazy Waves

If your natural hair is pin straight and lacking oomph or body, wearing your hair in damp braids overnight can add some much needed texture to your strands, with very minimal effort required. You could also use that crimper that you’ve had for years and get some cool texture with a little time spent in the am. In the morning, try adding a little hairspray like Equate Beauty Extra Firm Hold Hairspray for $2.74 on to help maintain the waves all day long. Add a few extra braids all around your head to get more intense waves or do fewer, larger braids to get larger, less intense waves.

Retro Pin Curls

Pin curls might sound old fashioned but there’s a reason so many women turned to them for glamourous curls. On damp hair, start at the bottom of the hair and roll up towards the roots, creating a loop. Secure in place with a bobby pin, making sure to maintain the looped shape, as this is what will give you that Hollywood look.

Pro Tip: Covering the pin curls with a silk wrap or scarf while you sleep to help reduce friction. This will make your curls less prone to frizz as well as giving them a glossier finish.

Simply twist sections of hair and hold them in place with a small elastic band and you’ll have a fluffy head of adorable curls in no time. Hair can be damp or dry and a little amount of gel can be added in the morning to maintain shape. Try CVS Extreme Hold Hair Gel Maximum Strength to keep your hair in place and twisted nicely all day long. Get it on

Wild, Curly Hair

Cut an old tee/shirt/pillowcase into long strips (or you could just use socks), then wrap sections of your hair into them by placing the end of each section on the center of the strip and rolling up. Once you’re done, just tie the ends of the strip together and move to the next section. Remember, the smaller your sections are, the tighter your wild curly hair will be.

Classic Top Knot

This is a great style for overnight as well as first thing in the morning. If you don’t have time to wash it, no problem. Simply add some dry shampoo or baby powder to your hair to help soak up some extra oils and get your hair to go an extra day between washes. Brush up into a high pony tail at the crown of your head. Twist hair and wrap around the base of the pony tail until you have a tight, top knot. Add a head scarf or leave as is. One of the simplest styles you can do any time of day or night. Up&up Aloe Vera & Vitamin E Baby Powder is available at target for $3.10.
