Spending Time on Your Hair / by rubi

One of the first questions I ask my clients when they sit in my chair for a haircut is, "How much time do you spend on your hair in the morning?" Most people sheepishly answer that they spend less than 5 minutes on it. I think they assume everyone else but themselves spends hours on their hair, but that's definitely not the case - I'm shocked when someone says they actually blow dry their hair with a brush! I'm in between the two, but leaning toward the less-than-5-minutes group.

I am however drawn to everyday hairstyles that involve prep time like the photo above. Hairstyles my grandmother used to wear that meant setting hair in curlers and sitting under a hood dryer, or sleeping with a hairnet over a pin curl set. I style hair in a similar way for my editorial work, and don't see why everyone can't wear their hair like models do. I am currently working on tutorials for the blog that involve sets, but simplifying them for the everyday. I'm really quite excited about it!

How much time do you spend on your own hair? Answer in the poll on the right.
