4 Ways To Wake Up With Perfect Hair

Photographed by Lauren Perlstein.
We’re not going to beat around the bush: We’re in an intimate relationship with our beds. We'll do anything to eke out just a few more minutes in our favorite comfy place — which usually means shaving some serious time off our morning hair routines. That being said, we’re pretty into our locks looking good, too. Can’t we have both?

The answer is yes. Here, Mia Santiago, hair guru of Sally Hershberger Uptown Salon, introduces us to the mystical ways of twisting your mane into a sleep­-proof style that will guarantee you catch a few more ZZZs, yet still wake up with gorgeous strands — no matter your hair type. With her sorcery, you’ll be putting the beauty in beauty sleep. Warn your snooze button: It’s about to get a serious workout.
