How To Get Great Hair In Your Sleep

Photographed by Alexandra Gavillet.
Unless you're blessed with magic hair, getting your strands to look incredible takes major time and effort. But, when our alarm clock is the victor in the battle between hitting the snooze button and primping our locks, time and effort are two things we find ourselves lacking some most days.
Fortunately, there's a loophole: Some crafty chicks are able to work major mane magic before they hit the sack, waking up with amazing hair. Yep, they do their thing pre-ZZZs and jump out of bed refreshed, well rested, and with gorgeous locks. Talk about having your cake and eating it, too.
So, to figure out the inner workings of #wokeuplikethis hair, we tapped some of the smartest cookies we know: our very own staffers. We’re a pretty diverse bunch when it comes to the hair on our heads, so their styles run the gamut, from natural texture to pixie cuts. Of course, these gals have some serious tricks up their sleeves. So, no matter what your 'do looks like, we’ve got an overnight hair tip for you. Click on, and prepare to get some stunning strands along with your slumber.
