Everyone knows the drill, you hit the snooze button one too many times and before you know it you were supposed to be somewhere five minutes ago.

But don’t fret! Kimberly Schmidt, Regency Beauty Institute alum and senior stylist at JUUT SalonSpa, says your best bet for fabulous hair when racing against the clock is to make it look effortless.

By playing with your natural texture and not overthinking it, Schmidt shows us how easy it can be to have your hair singing “I Woke Up Like This” in no time at all.

Look 1  —  Wavy Curls


Using a 2-inch barrel curling iron, twist hair and then unravel instead of curling for a naturally wavy look and feel. To add fullness, take a wide-tooth comb and gently backcomb through roots and midshaft of your hair.


Look 2  —  Scarf


Fold your scarf in half in the shape of a triangle. Then roll it over, with each layer being the width of your hand.  Place the middle of the scarf at the back of your head, then bring it out to the front and twist. Continue by bringing the two tails over the base and tie into a knot where you began.


Look 3  —  Twist Pony


Begin by sectioning off the hair on top of your head from temple to temple, and put the bottom half of
your hair into a ponytail at your nape. After you separate the loose hair evenly with a vertical part, twist each section in whichever direction you like, pinning in place as you go until you run out of hair. Pin the ends into the bottom ponytail, creating one large, low pony. Curl ponytail for extra volume and definition.
