Do Something With Your Hair!
Your morning hair routine revisited.
Does rushing through your hair routine in the A.M. make you an unorganized, lazy, mess? With so many time saving video hacks out there to make a productive morning. One would think that nailing your morning hair style would be a cinch. However, many woman spend from forty-five minutes to one hour in the morning on their hair styling routine. While wanting to do something else entirely because it feels like work and a lot of it. According to the Journal of Happiness Studies, when individuals were asked whether they would like to be working or doing something else. The individual’s intrinsic response was to be “doing something else” however, the study further showed that the activity or the something else was a leisure activity that had to warrant that individual’s attention. It is not different for us, we intrinsically want to be doing something else besides something that feels like work. Kalin Stokes founder of Chaseitz, a company that produces time saving styling tools that sync with most flat-irons, stands to agree. This full-time college student knows what it means to have a busy schedule. She holds tight to her idea of styling cram sessions, meaning if you have the right tools you don’t have to spend all morning styling your hair. She is confident enough to build a community around it. By simply posting the hashtag #iownmytime Kalin is empowering busy woman like herself to take back their time and rock out their morning hair routines. The eighteen year old time saving hack designer wants to have great hair in the morning but not at the expense of losing out on her favorite latte trips, pre-test mediatations, or her social chats to destress. Kalin says “creating tools to style your hair and feel less like work was a labor of necessity for me. I want to help others who are struggling with their morning hair routines too”
