Watching a hair tutorial is supposed to give you clarity and guidance, but if you just end up with confusion, that's totally OK too. We can't all be professional hairstylists or beauty gurus. You may think that you don't have the patience, time, or skills to get the hairstyle you've been dreaming of, but you could be totally wrong. You may just need one or two helpful products that will make hairstyling so much easier.

This rotating curling iron from Beachwaver basically does all the work for you. Or you can just wrap your hair around this heatless curling rod and wake up to voluminous curls without doing any touch-ups. Control your edges and fly-aways with this $8 wax stick.

Your mornings so much easier with these hair tools and styling products that are so simple to use.

The Original Sleepy Tie

This double scrunchie is designed to protect, prolong, and enhance your hairstyle. All you do is pull your hair into a high ponytail, wrap it around the satin arch, and then secure that with the attached scrunchie. I used this on curled hair, waved hair, straight hair, and a fresh blowout. Every morning, I'm so excited to wake up and see how good my hair looks. It's the best way to start the day.

If you are not sure you need this, I came up with a list of reasons why Sleepy Tie is an absolute must-have for me.

  1. It prolongs my style for another great hair day.
  2. I can save time in the morning by styling my hair at night.
  3. I use heated styling tools less often because I don't need to redo my hair as much. 
  4. The Sleepy Tie gives my hair some glamorous volume.
  5. I don't wake up with tangled hair or knots in the morning.
  6. The Sleepy Tie stays in place throughout the night.
  7. It keeps my hair out of my face, which prevents my hair/hair products from getting on my highly reactive skin. I've noticed my skin is less irritated since I started putting my hair up at night. 
  8. It doesn't crease or dent my hair.
