Save a Moment:
Easy, Time-Saving Changes to Your Hair Routine

Does your haircare routine feel too time consuming? Do you skip styling to save time? It doesn’t have to be that way. Making easy changes to your routine can speed up your style time so your hair looks great and you feel confident. Try these routine changes that will get you ready and out the door, fast.


Do you shampoo daily?

Give your hair a break and save some time by skipping the sudz and spraying on a dry shampoo like DESIGNLINE Dry Shampoo Style Refresher or Biolage Clean and Full Dry Shampoo. Dry shampoo absorbs excess oil at the scalp, adds texture, and leaves you feeling fresh. Pulling second-day hair into a pony tail, bun, or braid is another great option, and it holds even better than with freshly washed hair.


Shampoo in the morning?

Shift the shampooing to the night before, and if you don’t like sleeping on damp hair, blow it dry. Braid your damp hair or put it in buns before bed, and in the morning you’ll have great waves that just look like they took time to create. If you have medium or short hair and wake up with wild bed head, just lightly mist your hair with a water bottle and give it quick blow dry to tame it.

Two simple ways to save some time: Skip a day of shampooing and opt for dry shampoo, or try washing your hair in the evenings versus a rushed morning.

No time for styling?

Whether sleek and smooth or textured and messy, a bun is a fool-proof way to get great style in a hurry. Play with the placement—high or low—to change up the look. Spritz on Paul Mitchell Hold Me Tight Hairspray or DESIGNLINE Hold Everything Spray to hold it all in place.


Want to just speed up styling time?

Getting to the styling portion of your morning routine faster means getting your hair dry faster. After washing your hair, gently towel dry your hair well or even let it air dry for 10 to 15 minutes. Before using the blow dryer, apply a primer like Redken Pillow Proof or Paul Mitchell Quick Slip to speed up the dry time and protects hair against heat damage.


Making some simple changes to your styling routine can shave off time, but if you are looking for a big time-saving change, talk with your stylist about a haircut that could be easier to manage.
