How to Get Ready in 20 Minutes or Less

"Why is it so hard for women to get ready faster?"

This question is always on some men's lips every time they get delayed by their partner or female family member. There are many reasons women spend more time getting dressed than men. One of them is that women put effort into looking beautiful and put together. This idea is subconsciously registered in every woman's DNA. And when she is wearing just one dress and a pair of shoes, she might still take her time.

Thankfully, we have some tips that might help you slow down the time when you dress up. That way, you can get to your destination on time and avoid delaying another person. Learn more in this article.

Choose simple hairstyles

One of the things that takes some women's time when dressing up is hair. Styling hair for perfection often takes time. Some hairstyles demand creaming or oiling and waiting for some minutes before combing. You can change this pattern by choosing simple hairstyles that can be easily styled for you. If you use a wig, try to comb it the night before. Similarly, you can oil and comb your hair the night before you go out. In the morning, all you need is to do some touch-ups.

Pick out your clothes days earlier 

If you haven't done this before, you need to start now. Sketch out some time out of your weekend to pick out outfits for the week. That way, you won't spend time looking for the right clothes in the morning.


Understandably, you want to enhance your face every morning. One way to spend less time is to arrange only the makeup products you use daily. For instance, your everyday makeup items may include foundation, concealer, eye pencil, powder, and lipstick. Ensure you arrange only these five items with your paper towel on the dressing table. That will reduce the time you use sifting through your makeup box.

Create a capsule wardrobe

We have talked about the importance of a capsule wardrobe and how to create one. A capsule wardrobe includes only the clothing and accessories you need for three months before upgrading. This trick minimizes the time you spend in your closet.

Start your clothing choices with plain colors

Plain colors may include brown, black, navy blue, and white. Picking either a top or bottom in these colors makes it easy to pick a matching dress.
