There are a small percentage of women that seem to get effortlessly tossled hair without having to spend a ton of time styling it. Ugh. For the rest of us that aren’t born with hair like that, it’s almost obnoxious to look at! But, I do have a sneaky trick that will give those ladies a run for their money in the “effortless hair” department. Below is the lazy girl’s way to get lived-in, effortless waves without a single hot tool. Try this tutorial out at night after you wash your hair; it requires you to sleep on it!
- small, thin hair tie (Recommended:Models Prefer Clear Polybands: $4.99)
- texturizing dry shampoo (Recommended: De Lorenzo Elements Air Sandstorm: $23.50)
- light hold hairspray (Recommended: Aveda Witch Hazel Hair Spray: $29.95)
Step 1: Wash your hair and let it air dry most of the way. Hair should be ever-so-slightly damp. Secure your hair into a ponytail at the top of your head. Pulling a little volume at the front of your hair creates a nice bend.
Step 2: Twist ponytail and secure into a bun.
Step 3: Once bun is secured, get some ZZZs. Sleep on the bun all night long.
Step 4: In the morning, take your hair down and shake your locks out upside down. Spray your hair with texturizing dry shampoo and scrunch with your hands.

Step 5: Flip your hair to the side for an effortless look and spray with a light hold hairspray to set.
Voila! You’re all set for the day with sexy, lived-in locks!
