I could be ready in 15 if I set everything up the night before and don't take a shower in the AM. Most days it takes about 30 including my shower.

Yes, the hair cooperating is a crucial element in the time factor, as lamombo pointed out. I had an interview today so I gave myself extra time in case the hair was problematic and I wanted to do it again. So what happens? It comes out great! I have no idea what I did, but I know if I take all the exact same steps tomorrow, it won't look the same. But at least I felt good for the interview, AND I was ready really early for a change.

Today, I took 45 minutes because I had an interview that I went straight from work. Normally it only takes 30 minutes, but I stole a few extra minutes to tame my beastly hair.

15 minutes or less. I'm pretty low-maintenance.

15 min showers are pretty standard...but i usually do that at night. for the rest of my routine-face washing/teethbrushing/putting in contacts/putting on make-up--about 30 min.

More than 45 minutes: shower, dry the hair, use the iron to get straight hair, put on my clothes, makeup, accessories and the shoes!!!!!!!!

1 hour. It always takes me an hour. 10 minutes to actually get out of bed, shower, dry the hair, breakfast, brush the teeth, make-up, feed the dog, and out the door. Its all very routine.

i work at a gym so the best part is we don't have to do a lot to get ready in the morning. just shower, change and go! but i make up for it on the weekends. since i cant primp and "get pretty" during the week i go out all on the weekends, which the bf hates! lol

It typically takes me 30-40 minutes. It depends on if I showered and packed my lunch/snacks the night before. I have locs so I usually don't "do" my hair; the only makeup I wear is mascara and lip gloss; I pick my clothes out while I brush my teeth.

It only ever takes me 30 minutes at most... even if I wanna look "professional", maybe I'm lucky. Although I envy my mum who only takes 15 min at most. *sigh*
