Five tricks to achieving #wokeuplikethis hair

Getting your strands to look incredible usually takes time and effort, but the last thing you want to do during the dog days of summer is spend hours primping.  We can help you work some major mane magic at bedtime so you rise in the morning with the most perfect #wokeuplikethis hair. The best beauty regimens work without any extra effort on your part, so read on for our favorite overnight tricks to help you channel that effortless, lazy-girl, summer beauty vibe.

If you find yourself waking up with frizzy strands every morning, your pillowcase could be to blame. A silk or satin pillowcase will actually help your strands dry smoother if you tend to fall asleep with damp hair. Simply sleeping on silk sheets will help keep your locks from tangling and will add extra bounce to your curls. Applying Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Amino-Q Hold Gel and twisting your hair into loose ringlets will also help give your hair soft curls when you wake up in the morning.

Try French braiding your wet hair on nights when you shower before bed. As it dries overnight, it creates a smooth, mermaid-wave texture. The added texture will help your hair hold a curl more easily. In the morning, pull some pieces around your crown into a 1.5” barrel curling iron and leave the waves from your French braid throughout the rest of your head as is. The combination of the curling iron curl with the mermaid wave has a more undone, dynamic feel than simply curling your entire head of hair with an iron.

For a modern take on crimped hair, apply Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Biotin+ Volume Mousse from the roots to the ends of your damp hair. Then, starting at cheek level, braid your hair into four braids. In the morning, you’ll have fluffy curls at the bottom, but a sleek look at the top of your head for a more modern crimp.

Volumizing powder is a beauty girl’s best friend on a lazy day—but it works just as well overnight, too. If you know a shower isn’t in your near future, sprinkle a little Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Biotin+ Volume Magic Volume Powder through your roots before you snooze instead. You’ll wake up with clean hair and lots of model-off-duty texture.

Waking up to vintage Hollywood waves may seem too glam to be true, but we promise it can be done. Saturate your damp hair with Schwarzkopf essence ULTIME Omega Repair 11-in-1 Leave In, then divide your hair into a deep side part. Wind 2” sections of hair into little pin curls and secure each with a bobby pin. In the morning, brush out the curls for those perfectly shiny, loose rings.

#wokeuplikethis hair isn’t just an urban myth, it is possible - you just have to plan ahead. Stock up on all your favorite products from the Schwarzkopf ULTIME line, and wake up to a ready-to-go hairstyle!
