This is me getting ready! Well, on the days where I actually get out of my sweatpants (working from home is both a wonderful and scary thing…). I don’t like to spend hours getting ready, but I do want to look put together so my everyday hair and makeup only takes about 15-20 minutes all in. I hope it’s helpful!

PS My full hair tutorial (from wet to styled) is right here!

All products are listed in the video and linked below… Happy Wednesday!

    Another great video Jill! I’m going to try the straight iron. Thanks for the tip.

    I like to use hot rollers. Simple and also gives fine hair texture and waves.

      Thanks Nic! I rotate between a few and am always trying new ones out. Right now I really like the bumble + bumble surf shampoo ( and John Freida Luxurious volume shampoo ( I don’t use conditioner because it makes my hair too slippery, but will use a mask every once in a while or some serum on the ends. Hope that’s helpful!

    Awesome video – I will be trying this! Thanks so much for sharing. How do you keep your hair so frizz-free? My hair gets super dry and tangly especially in the winter. Can you recommend a mask or treatment? Thanks!!

      Thank you!! I love Moroccan oil on the ends as a deep conditioner (plus it smells amazing). I also just tried the John Frieda Miraculous Recovery mask and really like it. Just make sure you only put it on the ends if you have fine hair!

    Love this video – thanks for sharing! Question – how do you keep your hair so healthy/hydrated – do you have a mask/deep conditioner reco? My hair gets so dry/tangly. Thanks!
