Hitting the snooze button feels good, but only until you realise you now have only 10 minutes to get ready for a 10 am meeting!

01. Freshen up with a dry shampoo
Dry shampoo is a game-changer. It works like a charm to revive greasy, oily hair and leaves it refreshed in just a few minutes. Just spray it on your scalp, shake it up and brush it out to turn weighed down, greasy hair into a fuller, voluminous mane. Make sure to use a paddle brush to distribute the product evenly in your hair to avoid build-up.

02. Smooth out with a serum or hydrating oil
If your concern is not oiliness but dry and stubborn flyaways, you can quickly smooth it out with a nourishing serum or hydrating, lightweight oil. Apply the product from mid-lengths to ends, let it dry and comb through for an untangled, attractive looking mane.

03. Do a quick, textured ponytail
If a sleek look is not your vibe, go for a quick, textured hairstyle to look chic for your morning meeting in an instant. Use a texturising styling cream to add texture to your mane and secure it in a high ponytail. Simple and chic!

04. Change the parting
This is one of the easiest tricks in the book! If you often wear your hair in the same part, it tends to settle in and frame your face a certain way. Change your parting, either do it on another side or opt for centre parting, and watch your look transform in minutes.
05. Style your bangs
This one is a quick tip for the girls who struggle with making their bangs look presentable every morning. Do this: Spritz your bangs with some heat protection spray and style it with a dryer to get that salon-styled look. You can also straighten it and taper them to one side for a stylish side-swept moment.
