Wake Up With Gorgeous Hair — Here's How!

It's the age-old dilemma: We want our hair to look amazeballs, but we don't want to actually spend, you know, time on it. Curling irons, straighteners, blowouts — who's got the man-hours in the a.m. for all that? Alright, maybe people who don't hit snooze 14 times, but those people are supernatural beings sent here to taunt the rest of us with their early-bird productivity.
Sick of walking into the office with hair that can best be described as "tired and lazy," we went to international celebrity stylist Mark Hill to learn his trick for waking up with a done 'do. That's right, with this tutorial, you'll learn the steps to follow at bedtime to literally get an "I woke up like this" look.
He also gave us this great tidbit about the style: "As an alternative, you could brush through the hair to create a soft, disheveled wave movement. It will still have bend and body, but this adds a little fluffiness to the hair and makes it look less polished." Good to know!
Check the video above to watch Mark give our gal Sydney's hair a bedtime boost, then tell us in the comments your best overnight tress tricks. Share the wealth, ladies — the sleep-deprived among us need you.
