How To Style Hair Overnight

Never Leave the House With Limp, Wet Hair Again

Sure you can blow-dry or diffuse every morning, but not only does that cut into coveted sleep time, but the added heat can damage your strands. Save time (and your hair's integrity) by shampooing and air-drying at night instead. So get more sleep, along with three night-time styling ideas, when you read more.

Crimps sans iron: Get a soft, subtle version of the runway crimp trend with easy braids. After shampooing, split hair into four even sections. Apply mousse or gel for hold, and braid each section as tight as possible to form S-shaped waves. Take out the plaits in the morning, fluff with fingers, and head out the door.

Ringlets sans rollers: Modern, Shirley Temple-style ringlets can be done on damp hair spritzed with a leave-in conditioner, like KMS Silk Sheen Leave In Conditioner ($25.56). First, twist two strands of hair together and then twirl the twist until it's tight. Finish by wrapping the twist in a circular motion at the root and secure with clips or bobby pins. When you wake up, separate your bantu knots into bouncing curls.

Waves sans barrel: Create a subtly waved style with a series of twists. Prep the hair by saturating it with a liquid wax, and create four to six sections vertically across the head. Start at the hairline and work down to the nape, twisting hair from your scalp as you go. Secure each twist with a clip, and when you arise, hit the ground running with an effortlessly cool look.
