The number one reason why women say they don’t style their hair is lack of time.
Is this you?
Are your mornings rushed as you get everyone else ready? Or do you hit snooze one too many times?
Here are 4 ways to help you save time and style your hair.
#1 Prepare the night before
Does your morning feel as hectic as mine? Wake up, get the kids up for school, make breakfast, help them get dressed, make sure lunches are packed, backpacks are packed, permission slips are signed, etc. (Oye, how are we not exhausted before we even leave the house?)
After the kids are out the door, you have a short window to get yourself ready. No time to sit down and enjoy your coffee or even eat your breakfast. Maybe you try to squeeze that in while you’re getting dressed and putting makeup on.
Ok so now do you pack your lunch or do your hair?
Food is a priority, hair is usually back up in a messy bun.
How many of you can so relate to this? I know I can.
This is how I fixed it.
#1 – Streamline your morning
My kids make their own lunches
I create a weekly meal plan for myself. Now I know what I’m having for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. No more time wasted staring into the fridge and pantry waiting for something to pop out at me.
Following my meal plan, I meal prep. If you’re making oatmeal for breakfast, make a few extra portions. If you’re going to make a smoothie, have everything prepped in freezer bags so you can just grab and blend. Maybe you want to have a salad or sandwich for lunch, make a couple of days at once. I also love leftovers as an easy lunch.
I’m pretty lucky because my kids go to a school with uniforms. That takes the guesswork out of what they should wear in the mornings. If your kids don’t wear uniforms, have them lay out their clothes the night before and you do the same.
