Overnight Hairstyles: 10 Looks for Any Hair Type
1. Bed Head Waves
This hairstyle is one of our go-to ideas when we just don’t have the energy to flat iron our tresses. This wavy hairstyle can be done in your sleep.
2. Braid Out
This is one of the easiest overnight hairstyles for naturally curly hair. Create cornrows on your hair at night and loosen them in the morning to re-create this look.
3. Undone Curly Pixie
There’s something about the lived-in look of curls that makes your texture stand out. Define your curls at night with a gel like TRESemmé Flawless Curls Defining Gel and hit the sheets. Wake up to textured and undone curls in the morning.
4. Messy Bowl Cut
The bowl cut is back and believe it or not, there are plenty ways to make the look new every single day. We love this overnight messy look which you can actually just do in the morning. Spray your hair with a dry shampoo like Dove Fresh & Floral Dry Shampoo to absorb any excess oil and rough up your strands when styling to create this edgy finish.
5. Messy Pixie
Whoever says you have perfect bed hair knows a thing or two about overnight hairstyles? Create this look while you toss and turn and count sheep. In the morning, it’s time for the finishing touches use a gel to sculpt your hair in the direction you want it to fall.
6. Ringlet Waves
After washing your hair at night, create coils on sections of hair. In the morning, pull them apart to reveal short ringlet waves.
7. Sleek Bun
You have permission to go to bed with wet hair as long as you’re aiming to achieve this look. To be on the safe side, let’s stick with damp hair. Smooth your hair back into a low bun and cover with a silk scarf overnight to keep your hair sleek and in place.
8. Sleek Top Knot
This is a hairstyle you can wear throughout the week as long as you have an effective maintenence routine for sleeping. Gather your hair up into a high bun and use a serum like S Factor by TIGI Silky Smooth Serum to tame flyways. Sleep on a silk pillowcase at night to help preserve your style.
9. Spiral Curls
This look may be a tad uncomfy for some but some say beauty is worth the pain. Set your hair with small perm rods overnight to recreate this look at home.
10. The Twist Out
Twist your hair into two strand twists with a gel or styling cream for hold. In the morning release and fluff!
