Beyoncé may wake up flawless but for the rest of us, looking our best takes some time and major effort. Fortunately for us, there is a loophole for waking up to gorgeous hair… just sleep on it.

Yes, you read right. Styling your hair before sleeping gives you one less thing to do in the morning. So to get into our #flawless goals, we have just the right techniques for effortless hair in the morning.

Beachy waves

Before going to bed, dampen your ends. Wet or damp hair holds a style better than dry hair does. Part and comb damp hair the way you wish to wear it the next day. Split into sections and work in a style serum or a nourishing hair oil. Twist each section and let the product soak in well. Leave the twists in while you sleep and you will wake up to the perfect wavy look.

Voluminous shiny hair

Treatments go a long way, but often we don’t have the time to apply them. Massage a treatment into your hair – from your roots to your tips – and tie your hair into a topknot before you go to sleep. When you wake up, rinse the treatment out and you’ll have softer hair with more body.

Tip: Wrap your hair in a scarf to avoid the treatment soaking into your pillow and causing breakouts on your face.

Texturised curls

When you have curly hair, taming the out-of-control frizz that appears when your hair dries can be a nightmare. Whether you have short or long hair, apply a serum or oil and plait your hair before going to sleep. Loosen your hair the morning and use a curling iron to add volume.
