When I was in high school I had really bad insomnia – literally, I was sleeping maybe 3 to 4 hours per night then going to a full day of school. College really knocked the insomnia out since I actually had fun things to do at night to get rid of that energy but in high school…I was literally a walking zombie during the day!
Since I never had time to get ready since I was sleeping until the very last minute I wish I had known some of the tricks and hacks that I know of today to get ready in a pinch. Of course, I still sleep until the last possible minute to this day (what can I say, I love sleeping!) so I’ve developed a few tricks here and there including my five minute hack to how to fake a blowout that requires no hair dryers, multiple products, or fancy styling tools!
Five Minute Hack: How to Fake a Blowout, Step by Step
*Note – please don’t forget to use a heat protectant! I do this style three times a week and it’s important to protect your hair from the shock of the ceramic barrel.
The trick is to start at the top of your head, roll the iron underneath to create a little volume at the top of your head, slowly pull the iron down the strands and once you’re at the end, roll it under and hold for about four seconds and unclip. Voilà!
Bonus alert! If you want to accessorize even more, I love wearing this Vintage Lace Headband from Goody that is on sale at Meijer (along with a bunch of other staple beauty, hair and skincare products) all week long – very a la Blair Waldorf (Queen B is #GOALS).
