I know waking up late and quickly changing for work or school in less than 10 minutes is something we all have experienced. I usually blame late night Instagram stalking for this. For those hectic mornings, it is important to have quick solutions to cut our time in half. This is how I handle those crazy mornings or even on the weekends when I’m running late to an event. Here are my 4 tips on getting ready faster in the morning.
Wash front part of your hair or bobby pin it
When I don’t have time to shower and my hair looks greasy there are two solutions. First, please don’t judge me on this one, I wash my front part of my hair in the sink. I will then quickly blow-dry my hair to bring back volume. It really makes your hair look fresh without the hassle of jumping into the shower. If don’t have time for this either, my second solution is to clip my front hair with a twist or braid. That way I don’t relay on the obvious I didn’t shower ponytail or bun.
Carry your make up essentials in a travel bag
If you have your makeup in drawers take out the essentials and put them in an on-the-go makeup bag. That way you can just put your makeup in the car or when you get to work. I also like to have a spare makeup bag in my car with just the basics.
Stick to the classics (you can never go wrong)
During these rushed hours the biggest mistake is to try to figure out something cute or different to wear. When you only have a few minutes to change just stick to the classic pieces. This either can be what is popularized as the “classics” like stripped shirt, white button-up, blazer, etc. Or it can be your favorite outfit that makes you feel like a million bucks. Try sticking to all black since this automatically elevates any look.
Prepare your lunch and snacks the day before
For those who bring their lunch to work and school, it sucks when you didn’t have time in the morning to prepare your food. I try to remember before going to bed to make my lunch and my snacks together. This is easy to do when you foods prep in the beginning of the week. This way if your running late it is to grab and go.
