Ever tried throwing together a unique and chic hairstyle in the 10 minutes between shutting off the alarm and heading out the door? Well, this woman did -- six times in a row. You won't believe how she pulled it off

Day 2: Sleep (and snooze button) overdose

I have absolutely no time this morning (damn snooze button), so I come up with this look on the fly. I don’t normally slick my hair back, but with the amount of time I save, this might actually become my new go-to hairstyle:

1. According to Dunton, “sleek buns are easiest to get on wet hair.” Since I don’t have enough time to shower, I just wet my hair and use a towel to blot out some of the water. Then, I create a deep side part using the tail end of a comb.

2. I apply a generous dollop of styling gel to my hair, and use a comb to distribute it from root to ends. While it is still damp, I brush all of my hair into a low ponytail, and tie it with an elastic.

3. Starting at the elastic, I twist the ponytail all the way to the ends, and wrap the twist around the base to create a tight bun. I tuck the ends under and slide bobby pins into the bun at different points all around until I’m sure it won’t fall down at my desk.
