Our hair is considered our crowning glory because of how it sets the vibe of your entire beauty look! But as much as we all want to change hairstyles daily, it's not always possible because there usually isn't enough time to get ready in the morning or it's just too much effort to get your hair looking as great as you want it to. Since we totally feel you with all these hair concerns, we decided to share some of our hairstyle shortcuts and cheats for all the girls out there who are always in a hurry to get ready or are too lazy to do multiple steps just to get the perfect look. Just scroll down to learn our hair tricks so you can always have a good hair day without having to spend too much time getting ready!

  1. Want to wake up with natural-looking beachy waves? All you need to do is braid your hair into 3 sections before you sleep, and voila! You'll have naturally wavy hair in the morning. Feel free to apply a bit of hairspray to make your hairstyle last.

  2. Another shortcut to getting that cool girl messy hair is by spraying sea spray on your damp hair and then let it try by a fan or using your blow dryer. You can do that quickly and let your locks air dry after, and make sure to scrunch up different sections for extra texture.
