We all run busy lives, and sometimes it can be hard to find the time to nicely style our hair. Curling your hair can take an especially long time, but it doesn’t have to. Today I’m going to show you my method for how to curl your hair in 5 minutes or less. That’s right, you can curl your hair in 5 minutes or less!

This hair styling trick is great for that loose, slightly messy look that makes you look a lot more put together than that bed head you slick back into a ponytail or top knot. Not that anything is wrong with those styles, I wear ponytails and top knots all the time, but sometimes it’s nice to do a little something extra, and it’s great when that something extra doesn’t take 30 minutes or longer.
