Life is meant to be enjoyed. There are mountains to climb, friends to laugh with, careers to conquer and love to be found. And yet you’re telling us you spent more than a half hour this morning just curling your hair? That’s crazy talk! Check out this lifesaving trick from beauty professional Emma Willis of Contour Fossa, who shows us how to cut down our hair-curling time down to just three quick minutes! 

3 minute hair curling iron trick

Things You’ll Need:

1-inch curling iron
Hair tie

Step 1: Pull your hair into a high ponytail on the top of your head. Secure with a hair tie.

Step 2: Separate your hair into four sections, and curl each section with a 1-inch curling iron, curling the hair away from the head. 

Step 3: Let the curls cool to set. 

Step 4: Take the ponytail out and softly brush through your hair. Spray a flexible hold hairspray onto the curls, like Garnier Flexible Hold Anti-Humidity Hair Spray. And you’re good to go!

How much time will this trick save you? We’d love to know. Tell us in the comments below!
