I've got the worst thin, insanely curly hair. I straighten it EVERY DAY and I have to pay special attention to getting enough volume. It's just depressing really.

Try 5 seconds, my hair is pixie short. On a day when I want to look cute, it takes about a minute.

A minimum of a 1/2 hour to detangle my hair and get product in it (the night before), then in the morning I fix my bangs and smooth down the frizzies and freshen up my curls, which can take another 1/2 hour. If I style my hair, it's definitely 2 hours, minimum. My hair is curly and high maintenance due to it's length. ninja by day, student by night cynsim.com

If I'm going onto duty then my hair is pretty much slicked back and glued into a low bun on the back of my head. I naturally have wavy hair so the second that I get out of the shower I just damp it with a towel and apply either gel and/or no frizz and I'm set.

10 minutes max, strictly wash and wear. If it is warm outside I won't even dry it all the way.

Well, I don't care much about my hair so I either brush and go, or pull it back into a ponytail.

curly and unrully is my hair's specialty...45 mins is just what it takes...and did i mention how much i despise the humidity?? Yuck! :)

I voted for a half hour because that's the longest it will take--assuming I blow dry it and straighten it. If I leave it curly then it takes maybe 10 minutes. If I pull it back, less than that.

I also have long super-thick wavy/curly hair, so with blow-drying and flat ironing, it takes me between an hour to an hour and a half to do my hair. Sometimes I think of cutting it shorter just to save time, but I really really love having long hair.

i just spend a few min to blow dry my hair , not so much of styling cos my hair is just limp.. and i have no time nor patience to style it but if it is a special night i sometimes curl my hair, then it would take me ard 30 min

it depends on the occasion. sometimes if im late then i'll just put it up in a bun. normally when i just let it down it takes about 20min. including drying and straightening and putting all the hairs in place “Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping” - Bo Derek

I have broached the subject of shaving my head to lessen my getting ready time with my hubby and he really just is not into that. Right now it is long and if I blow dry it straight it is about 1 hour to fully get ready and out the door.

depends... my hair is long, thick,curly and i got tons of it too... if i go for curls, i'm done in 10 min... just apply tons of leave-in conditioner/mousse. if i want it straight its about 45 min blow-drying + another 30-45 min flat ironing it...

Usually 45 minutes if I use my flat iron.

I blow dry mine the night before and then I do something that in Spanish we called "la vuelta" is is just brush your hair around your head the keep it with hair clips, so in the morning is like new!.

Pixie cuts ROCK! Even if it spikes up oddly some days, it's the kind of cut where who knows, maybe I meant it to look like that, LOL!

Same here, I have the naturally wavy (but not pretty wavy) hair. I can air dry and tie it back but if I want to look halfway decent I have to blow dry and flat iron it which can take about an hour in the morning...an hour I could be sleeping!

I just rough dry mine with my hairdryer then shove it in a bun or ponytail.Even if I wear it down I don't use products during the day as there is no point.My hair is so fine and flat whatever I do just drops out!

I would love to have hair that I could just wash and wear...I have long, wavy, layered hair that I blow out, flat iron and use a bunch of product on. I should probably buy stock in Frederic Fekkai, surely I'd be a part owner by now!

Less than 15 minutes for me! :D A couple of minutes to work the products in, a minute to comb it, a couple of minutes to blow out and flat iron my bangs and a minute or so to work some texture product in and voila! :P
