6Try a beach spray.

Beach sprays can be used on damp or dry hair. If you wash your hair at night, spray some on your hair, then wrap hair in a scrunchy on top of your head. When you wake up, you will have loose, sexy beach hair. Alternatively, try spraying on dry hair for easy texture. You can even make your own beach spray by mixing 8 ounces distilled water with 1 teaspoon finely ground sea salt. Add in ½ teaspoon of conditioner (find one with a coconut or mango scent for a real beach feel). Mix the ingredients in a spray bottle for your own beach spray!

7Change your part.

One of the easiest ways to style your hair and change your look is to part your hair. Try a middle or deep side part; it can change your look instantly!

8Get some accessories.

Get a collection of headbands, flower clips and other hair accessories to add quick, easy style to your hair.

9Clip in some extensions.

Add a long ponytail or some individual pieces to your natural hair with clip-in extensions. They take some practice to place correctly but can get you glamorous long hair in an instant.

10Change up your ponytail.

Ponytails are the best way to get out the door fast, but they don't have to be boring. You can add a few curls or flat iron the ponytail. Try adding a flower clip or a headband to make it fabulous.

I agree with skipping the blow dryer. I try to shower at night so my hair can air dry, then flat iron in the morning. Heat is so bad for your hair, and since I always flat iron, I avoid the blow dryer when possible.

I loved this article because I'm obsessed with always having new hairstyles but I lack the time and patience for a time-consuming look. I'm always looking for new ideas and products to shorten my styling time so this article was great!

I Love this idea. My hair texture is fine and damaged. the least amount of heat styling I do to it the better. Im in love with the Supersalano Ionic pro hair dryer. Takes me 10 minutes to do my hair. But the days i dont want to use the dryer i like to refresh with Aveda Pure Abundance spray or surf spray from BB. Both with give you a nice fresh look in seconds
