17 Ways To Never Have A Bad Hair Day Again

From no-heat waves to sticky bobby pins, these easy hair hacks will banish subpar styles from your life.

And, more importantly, doable in under five minutes with a hangover and/or screaming child.

3. And you don't even need a hair tie for this one.

4. If you don't have time to heat-style your hair, these waves are for you.

5. Or you can get these perfect spirals by doing a one-minute prep the night before.

6. OR get looser, less-defined waves by flat-ironing braids.

Because who has time to wash their hair?

13. Everyone will think this easy braided headband required a lot of effort.


Even though it really didn't, duh.
