15 Ways To Make Your Hair Look More Put Together In Under 5 Minutes

It’s that time of year again – you know, when it starts getting colder and darker in the morning, and all you want to do is hit snooze 12 times until you can finally muster up the courage to get out of bed and start getting ready for school. It happens to all of us! I get it. As we get deeper into fall, it can be hard to actually wake up and get ready for school. And I’m here to tell you it’s okay to wake up a little late. You just have to avoid making it LOOK like you woke up a half an hour after you were supposed to. And in order to do that, you need to look put together, which can be hard when you have under five minutes to get your hair looking picture-perfect. Don’t worry, I’ve got you.

Yes, there are some people who are #Blessed with perfectly frizzless hair and beautiful curls, but if you’re like me, when you wake up in the morning, your hair looks like a bird’s nest. So, you need to tame it with some cute hairstyles and accessories. Luckily, there are some really pretty ones that are actually super quick and won’t take up TOO much of your precious time. So you can feel free to sleep in a little longer, and try out these easy ways to make your hair look put together.
