5 Ways to Save Time in the Morning
Always running late? Try these smart tips for quick makeup and hair, and more.
Wrap your freshly washed hair in a towel (preferably a super-absorbent one, like the Aquis Microfiber Hair Towel, $19, at amazon.com) and let it partly dry naturally while you go about getting dressed and having a quick breakfast. Not only will this cut drying time but it will also give your steamy bathroom time to clear out. Humidity is the enemy of a quick—and smooth—blow-out: Imagine drying your hair in a steam room.
A fast blow dry starts with effective tools: the right dryer, plus a big round brush for straight hair (bigger brushes also cut drying time) and a diffuser for curly hair.
