Finding the motivation to style your hair in the morning can be challenging, especially if that morning happens to fall on a Monday. However, you can totally recycle Sunday's messy-chic hairstyle before your first workday commute of the week, and we're here to tell you how!
Getting away with messy hair
The most important thing you can do when styling a minimal effort look of any kind is to make sure the texture is controlled. So, if your real bed head tends to leave your mane a little wilder than you'd like, reign it in with your flat iron. You may also need to use some dry shampoo on the roots to add lift and texture, too.
In a similar vein, if some of your hair is wavy or curly, and some of it is just a bit wonky when you wake up, use a curling iron to even things out. To encourage an undone, beachy feel, spritz your strands with a texturizing heat protectant first.
If you're a dab hand when it comes to forward planning, try misting your hair before bed, then sleep with it in a braid or a low bun to perfect those waves.
Your finished hairstyle should work with the rest of your workday look, so it's best to go for something simple yet versatile. A voluminous second day side sweep or textured half-up hairstyle both look great with absolutely any outfit, as do other go-to staples like messy buns and low chignons. That said, there's something so effortlessly chic about a teaming a tousled mane with a bold lip color!
