If you routinely skip washing your hair and go through dry shampoo like coffee, you're not alone. Being a girl is hard, and waking up on time is also hard.

Lucky for you, there are a number of hairstyles that require little to no effort and only take 10 minutes (or less) of your time.

It's nice to at least pretend you have your shit together, so why not give these looks a try?!
