Five Minute Hair Tutorials That’ll Speed up Your Morning Routine

Getting ready in the morning is sometimes a chore. By the time I get both my boys dressed and fed, I sometimes wish I could head out in my pajamas.

I implement at least one of these styling tricks every day for getting ready fast and extending the life of second- or third-day hair. Beauty bonus: These styles work great on Latin hair.
