If you take advantage of every extra minute of sleep you can get, then you are like me and are always looking for ways to get ready faster in the morning to allow time to sleep in longer. Here are a few of my signature get-ready-faster tactics.

  1. Keep a pouch of essentials: Keep a small zipper pouch full of your daily essentials like gum, lip color, keys, mascara, and aspirin, that way if you switch purses or backpacks all you have to worry about is grabbing the pouch and you will know you have everything you need for the day.
  2. Document your outfits: When you find an outfit you like, take a picture of it before you leave for the day. That way, if you are ever out of outfit inspiration and are running late and can’t pick out an outfit for the day, you can go to your “outfits” folder on your phone and quickly see an ensemble that worked for you and then you can easily recreate it.
  3. Quick dry your hair: If you have time to wash your hair in the morning, don’t blow dry it right after your shower. Wrap it in an absorbent towel, go eat breakfast and get ready, then blow dry it. Blow drying your hair in a steamy bathroom can cause it to frizz up and also takes longer to dry. Waiting lets your bathroom air out.
  4. Dry shampoo before bed: This helps the dry shampoo soak up oils while you sleep and gives you clean looking/smelling hair in the morning! This saves you time because you don’t have to go wash your hair.
