Overnight hairstyle tricks
August 20, 2017, 1:00 pm

There is no struggle greater than having to set a hairstyle in the morning, but the good news is that there is a very efficient way to solve this problem, and it starts right before you go to bed. Ahead, discover three overnight hairstyle hacks to help you get yourself out the door faster than you ever imagined.

For medium-length hair

Overnight sock curls are officially a thing, and it’s worth testing out. Here are the steps: Split your hair into two sections and out of those sections, split them into two more. In total, you should have four sections. Take your first sock and wrap your hair around it, rolling it upwards towards the top of your head. Tie your hair into a knot. Tie it as tightly as possible and consider bobby pinning the sock if it begins to fall loose.

Repeat the same process with the next three sections. In the morning, gently roll the socks of your hair.

Optional: Add dry shampoo to your roots to add some volume and rub a small amount of styling cream through the curls.

For short, coarse hair

You can wear your natural hair without the need for styling by sleeping in four simple bantu knots: Split hair into two sections and then split them into two sections again. Secure each section with a hair elastic. For the two front sections, twist your hair towards the back of your head as high up as possible twisting around the base.

Keep twisting until you can create a mini bun and then tuck the ends very securely. Secure the knot with a hair elastic. Repeat with the second front hair section. In the back, bring your hair high up and twist facing towards the front of your head. Repeat the same process as the front pieces and then secure.

Optional: Use a stocking or silk scarf to protect your hair while you sleep. In the morning, carefully untwist the four knots. Take a comb and tease your hair, paying the most attention to the back of your hair. Finish with hairspray.

For medium-length thin and thick hair

Using a normal fabric headband, you can create soft, pretty waves overnight. This is how you do the process: Split your hair into two sections and place two headbands (to keep hairstyle secure) over the top of your hair. If a bump occurs, pull your hair down to ensure that it’s flat. Spray the area below the headband with a bottle of water to make your hair damp. Twist the first section of your hair and then wrap this section around the headband – starting behind your ear. Repeat the same process for the second section of your hair. Spray the back, wrapped portion of your hair with hairspray before bed.

In the morning, slowly unwrap the two sections, with the headband on. Take the headband off after the curls are out. Style curls by scrunching waves with a small amount of texturizing cream.
