Life is busy… I am CONSTANTLY on the go lately. There are so many days where I’m at work all day and then need to rush home have a wardrobe change and be out the door again for another event. I spend three hours a day in the car and am definitely not a morning person. So if I’m being totally honest, all my hairstyles are super easy and a lot of the time I change in the car.
Thank goodness for the sleek side braid. I really couldn’t get through life without it. It’s the perfect sneaky way to look polished while exerting minimal effort. Plus, I can pull it off in my car. It’s great for my meetings, but then I can add a little sparkle and transition it for an evening soiree. As an added bonus, it’s approximately 147 degrees at all times in Atlanta right now, so it helps contain the cray.
Ready for my trick? I only straighten the top and the bottom. The rest of the crazy curl I hide in the braid.
Seriously. In the morning, I straighten the very top and the very bottom of my hair. Then I pull all of my hair to the side and do a regular braid. I tie it off pretty high to allow a little more polished look. Then I run my straightener over the bottom again and call it a day. For night, I add a sparkly pony tail holder at the bottom for a little extra bling.
Do you have a go to day-to-night hairstyle? How do you balance a busy schedule?
