13 Lazy Girl Ways To Wear Your Hair That Look Like You Tried Hard

I have a confession to make: I am not a morning person. I’ve tried over the years to trick myself into becoming one. From going to bed early to setting the coffee maker to start brewing at 6 a.m. to treating myself to a breakfast treat, I’ve tried it all. My struggle with mornings is why I’m always on the hunt for lazy girl hairstyles that make it look like I’ve been up for hours, when the truth is I’ve barely been awake for 15 minutes.

Having the right hairstyle is important. It can be the difference between looking like a professional and looking like you just don’t care. Whether you have an early morning office meeting or you’re just struggling to get to brunch after an evening of too many shots, there’s a hairdo for your needs. With a few good tools in your arsenal, you too can fool everyone into thinking you spent extra time getting ready, and nobody will be the wiser. Grab your dry shampoo and bobby pins, and join me in the world of lazy, but completely stylish hair. Together, we can take over the world, even if we are prone to hitting the snooze button.
