    I voted 20 mins, but that only applies if I wash and dry my hair (2-3 times a week). Otherwise I just comb it and go. :)

    Depends – without washing/drying/straightening , just getting ready for work in the morning, then 5 minutes – if including those 3 about an hour and 15 mins – it takes me about 45 minutes to straighten my hair because it’s really long :/

    I need between 15 and 20 minutes incl. washing, combing and drying

    I have super curly hair and everyone assumes that it’s a lot of work but I think I have it easy. I spray gel in it when I get out of the shower and wrap it up in a towel while I get dressed and do my make up.

    It’s mostly dry when I take off the towel. If it’s super cold out I’ll use a diffuser for <5 mins. to finish drying.

    Sometimes I’ll put in a headband or barrettes or something if I want, but I have it cut in a shoulder length bob (as much as curly hair can “bob” lol) which I feel looks styled by itself.

  5. I need about 20 – 30 just depends on how my hair is acting – but that includes blowdrying it.

  6. 5 minute shower, towel dry a bit, brush through, then I just let my hair air dry :) My locks are so healthier and silkier this way, and no work involved! And I like my hair’s natural texture..

    Most of the time my shoulder length wavy hair gets a wash and some Bumble&Bumble Curl Conscious and air drys. When I go out on the weekends swing dancing then all bets are off and it’s usually about an hour, with hot rollers, lots of hair spray and bobby pins and a flower to tuck in somewhere.

    I have uber short hair (think M in James Bond) so it takes seconds to do my hair. Smoosh with product, air dry, done.

    Not including the washing/drying etc – it takes about 5 mins or less. Basically I just need to comb through, spray some volumizer hairspray and tease a bit at the crown :)

    It takes about 20 minutes to blow-dry & straighten my hair, but if you include my shower, it’s about 35 minutes. In the morning when I go to school, I can get ready in about an hour [this includes showering, eating, make-up, getting dressed & doing something with my hair]

    In the morning when my hair is already straight about 5 mins. but if I have to start from scratch with my curly, pufy hair about an hour, buuuuuuuuut if i have to wash my hair and I’m feeling lazy I’ll just take my shower and when I’m done put mousse in it and I’m done!

    I may be a makeup wiz, but I’m pretty incompetent when it comes to hair. My hair is dead straight, so it doesn’t need that much styling thankfully.

  13. Usually 15mins – That’s just styling =]

    I can fall in either end of the spectrum. If I shower and go: 2 minutes. If I have to flat iron it, which is what I usually do, it takes me just over 30 minutes…well maybe if I didnt stop and break 10 times while I’m doing it, it might not take me that long! Hehe!

    Happy Turkey Day!

    I don’t blow dry my hair, so all I need is a quick brushing and I’m off to do makeup!

    I have long curly hair, bra-band length with lots of layers, short and long. I don’t have to do much to it really.. If I’m going out, I put some natural gel in it. I’ve grown to love my hair, I can do so much with it. It takes me like 2 mins, whatever I do.. that’s the great thing about curly hair, it always looks good. If I straighten it, it takes an hour plus.. but it’s rare that I do that bc I love my curls.
