The Snooze Addict Hair Tutorial

I have spent a lot of time pressing the snooze button on my alarm clock and running out of the front door like a nocturnal animal out in the sunlight over the years. I certainly know the importance of being able to do quick and easy hairstyles that make you look like a million dollars, when you only have five minutes to get to class on time, or to catch the subway for work. We've all been there and well, I think it's safe to say that every day is like this for me. However, it's not all bad news because my lack of ability to wake up on time has allowed me to master the easiest and chicest hairstyle out there that will have you cutting corners and making it to your destinations, looking fabulous in no time. Here is my favourite quick and easy hair tutorial that you will ever need when trying to survive from an excessive snooze-pressing morning.

I named this hair tutorial over the one step that takes this look from gross bed head to a glamorous, red carpet look. Ponytails can be so super boring, and if you've been sleeping your hair all night, chances are that you're going to wake up and find pieces sticking up over here, flopping over there and twisting up into a spiral back there. Hey! It happens to all of us. However, these little hair strands that are ever so sporadic can make it very difficult to pull your hair up into a cute high ponytail, which is why I created the Flip It.

Comb your hair back into a low ponytail, allowing pieces to fall where they may. After all, your bus comes in 5 minutes so you don't really have time to play around with it, right? Once you have tied your ponytail, separate it into two pieces above the elastic, so in between your head and the hair elastic. When parting your ponytail into the two sections, be sure to do so right through your hair so you can see that the middle is clear of hair strands. Take your ponytail and flip it up and through the hole that was created with the separation, pulling it back down and under. Pull and tighten.

This action will create a twist right at the start of your pony tail, not only hiding the elastic in a unique and chic way, but adding texture and personality to a rather basic look. From here, you have several options to continue with a braid, or a bun if your hair is really funky from a night full of tossing and turning, but you can most certainly leave it, as it and you will look absolutely fabulous. This hair tutorial literally takes only seconds to accomplish and no one would ever know that you crawled out of bed only seconds before leaving your house. To revamp this look if you find yourself snoozing it until minutes before you are required to clock in at your job every day, switch it up from a higher pony tail, to a side one, or a super low pony tail.
