Like, look at Amandla Stenberg.

“friendly hello from your neighborhood bed-head,” she wrote on Instagram.

She #WokeUpLikeThis, and we’re jealous AF.

But we can too! Here are some tips to get ~beautiful~ bedhead:

1. Sleep with your hair up in a scrunchie.


Using the pineappling technique, pile your hair on your head using a scrunchie. Because they’re softer, the throwback hair tie doesn’t leave harsh lines on your hair.

Get the set for $12!

2. Wear a classic satin sleep cap.


If you don’t already have one of these, we aren’t even sure what to tell you. Wrapping your hair with a satin scarf is an essential if you want to protect your locks, so hop to it!

3. Or, use a satin pillow case.


Perfect for the ~lazy girl~ because you don’t have to do *anything* to get your hair ready for bed! The satin doesn’t pull and tug at your hair like cotton, leaving it much easier to work with in the morning.

Get it for $7!

4. Keep your hair moisturized before bed.


Happy hair is *way* more willing to work with you in the morning, so keep your hair moisturized to prevent tangles.

Get it for $11!
