Let’s dive into my best tips for a quick and easy morning hair routine. I know the mornings can be chaotic and rushed, and the last thing you want to worry about is your hair. However, having a daily hair routine can save you time and make you feel more confident and prepared for your day.

Why is it important to have a morning hair habit?
I want you to compare how you feel on the mornings that you take the time, and you style your hair, and you put on your makeup vs. the day that you just threw your hair up in the same messy bun like the one you slept in. Feel the difference?
When I style my hair, I feel more confident, beautiful, and like I can take on the world. Ok, well, at least kickass for my day. It’s the same feeling you get every time you walk out of the salon.
I hear from clients all of the time that they need plans when they leave the salon. Why is that? They feel amazing, gorgeous, and confident. Don’t save those feelings just for the salon day. You can feel like this every day.
I know that when I style my hair, I’m for sure going to get dressed and put on a little makeup. I am then ready for whatever my day throws at me. Also, it makes you feel more accomplished. Kinda like how making your bed does. You are already taking on the day.
I loved this example I read from the Huff Post, “Our looks matter and hair matter a lot in our general sense of attractiveness. With so many unknowns surrounding us in today’s complicated world, it is nice to know that a good hair day is a simple yet deeply “rooted’ solution to our desire to look and feel good at any age.”
Now your morning hair routine does not need to be time consuming or complicated. I will dive deeper into that below.
Tips for how to get into a daily hair routine
Creating a new hair routine is like any other routine; it takes time. Most new habits take 21 days to become part of the norm. Give yourself grace if you miss a day.
Make styling your hair a priority!
If you want to have all of the good feelings I described above, like feeling put together and beautiful and confident, you need to make this a priority in your morning. All new habits take making a conscious decision to add them to your day.
Set your alarm 10 mins earlier the night before.
DO NOT wake up earlier and then hop on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Those won’t give you the warm fuzzy feelings your hair will.
Make the decision every night to style your hair the next morning.
Compliment yourself each time after you style. (this may sound silly, but you will feel beautiful, and you need to tell yourself that.)
