Have a two-minute hairdo
Master at least one hairstyle that takes five minutes or less. If you’ve got time to spare, go all in on curls, braids, or the latest trend you saw on Pinterest. If not, pull your hair into a ponytail at the nape of your neck or a polished topknot. These styles generally last longer and look best on textured slept-in hair, so add some dry shampoo and you’ll be good to go. (You can probably get away with showering less than you think). Don’t underestimate the power of a low-maintenance haircut. Tell your stylist about any concerns you might have about fixing your hair each morning, and listen to what she has to say. These are the secrets your hairstylist wishes she could share.
Buy clothes that hold up
Iron? What iron? If this sounds like you, invest in clothing that does some of the work for you. Many brands offer non-iron dress shirts and T-shirts that will look polished even if they’ve been crammed into the bottom of your drawer (or smushed in a suitcase during a business trip). Additionally, cashmere, wool, polyester, and lyocell are more wrinkle resistant than fabrics like cotton, rayon, and silk. Well-made clothing can also shave seconds off the time you spend on outfit prep. This is how to spot quality pieces before you leave the store.
