The One Beauty Hack All Low Maintenance Girls Need

When I started my career in TV news, waking up for my 4 a.m. shifts taught me a thing or two about how to get ready in record time. If you welcome the opportunity to press that snooze button a few more times and hate nothing more than spending too much time primping in the morning, this one's for you! So, what is the ONE beauty hack all low maintenance girls need to know? All I have to say is hair is key.

While long locks are gorgeous, some of us aren't lucky enough to have the perfect "I woke up like this" hairstyle without trying. But, the good news is, there are plenty of ways to create waves and curls of all kinds overnight (without heat) — aka while you're sleeping. Like, who wouldn't want to master this trick? Seriously, when I learned how to wake up with perfect hair, the time it took me to get ready in the morning was cut in half!

And no, you don't have to be a magician, which is what I'm about to prove to you with a few tutorials. So, after scouring the Internet for a few overnight hair geniuses, here are a few of the best and brightest:

1. Flawless Overnight Romantic Waves

If I didn't know any better, I'd totally think she used a curling iron.

2. Heatless Headband Waves

Chances are, you probably haven't worn that headband for anything other than washing your face since middle school, so here's another great use for it.

3. The Ponytail Trick

This one is different from any other tutorial I've seen, but I'm excited to try it nonetheless!

4. Overnight Waves For Short Hair

Short and medium-haired ladies can use this technique as well.

5. Double Braid Technique

It's just that simple.
