Whether you’re not a morning person or you just can’t seem to give yourself enough time to get ready for a night out, primping and preparing shouldn’t be stressful. These simple tools can get you out the door fast, whether it’s for a job interview, a date, girl’s night out, or just a normal Monday.
1. The DAFNI Original Ceramic Straightening Brush
When you want to look extra polished without having to risk getting a round brush stuck in your hair or you’re just pressed for time, the DAFNI Original Ceramic Straightening Brush actually works. I tested it on my own wavy hair and it took less than 1/4 of the time I usually spend with a normal flat iron. When my super-curly haired cousin tried it out, she couldn’t get over how fast and easy it was to use. “I’ll probably still be late to work once in a while,” she admitted, “But it’s going to be my own fault for watching TV in bed, not from getting ready.”
You can snag a DAFNI Original Ceramic Straightening Brush here for $199. If it sounds steep, just remember how much time you’re going to save—and how often you’ll use it as a result—and you’ll realize that it’s a pretty worthwhile investment.

3. Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick
When you don’t have time or desire for a full face of foundation, use a stick that matches your skin perfectly to conceal any redness, blemishes, or problem areas. Why a stick? If you’re in a pinch, you can use this on the train! There are a ton of different brands and formulations, but this one seems to have the widest range of shades. Snag one here. For a lower priced dupe, try Maybelline’s Fit Me here.
4. Aquis Microfiber Hair Towel
The Aquis Microfiber Hair Towel will cut down your blow-drying time by a while. Wrap your hair in this while you do your makeup and get dressed or eat breakfast, then blow dry the way you normally would. Not only are you saving time, you’re also minimizing the heat damage to your tresses. Grab one here.
