Class is in session! As school and work return from the summer and holiday breaks, a lot of us are gearing up for a season of early mornings, long nights, and tight schedules. One of my personal goals for this new month is to get a better grasp of balancing my time…including the time it takes to do my hair and makeup. Don’t get me wrong, my beauty routines will always be a priority. But, sometimes, the last thing we need is an overcomplicated regimen before a full day of classes and/or meetings.

If you’re off to college or just gearing up for fall, we’ve rounded up some essentials that will save you the time and energy needed to focus on getting straight A’s and stacking your coin, all while slaying of course!

A Top Knot Turban for Lazy Hair Days

The Red by Kiss Galaxy Top Knot Turban is a versatile, stretchy head wrap for styling during the day and wrapping at night. This turban is a quick and chic way to protect your hair from breakage and frizz, while making a fashion statement. It’s breathable, and comfortable to wear, and you don’t have to spend the extra time tying the knot yourself. The Galaxy Top Knot Turban comes in six different glittery colors!

All-in-One Edge Control & Brush for Laying Edges

Tame those edges with the Edge Cara, a 4-in-1 edge brush and fixer from Red by Kiss. A Biotin B7 infused fixer comes inside of the edge brush so you don’t have to worry about carrying around a large jar of gel. This tool comes in super handy, and the fixing gel holds really well without any sticky or flaky residue. Plus, it comes in two different scents that smell delicious.

Lace Bond Spray For Long Days

Perfect for daily wig applications, this heavy-duty Style Fixer Lace Bond Spray gives extreme hold all day long, without any build-up. It’s sweat-proof, water-resistant, and formulated to prevent hair damage. The formula is also delicate enough to be easily removed, and it dries quickly!

Au-Natural (But Actually Faux) Lashes

Pulling an all-nighter? These lashes are key to waking up those tired eyes and making your lashes pop.

Of course, we like to keep it cute and natural during the day, so we recommend i-Envy’s Bare Lashes. These lashes have a thin band, are as soft as a feather, and blend seamlessly with natural lashes.

Pimple Patches To Treat Breakouts

Kiss New York Professional’s Tea Tree Invisible Spot Patch is a must! Get rid of those pesky, pop-up pimples overnight with these tea tree-infused patches. Fast results and touchless!

Styler Fixer Freeze Hair Spray

Keep your styled hair fresh and in place throughout the day with this 2-in-1 lace glue hairspray from Red by Kiss! For hair styling, wig applications, and last-minute touches, this formula is quick drying and provides a strong hold instantly on all styles.

Butter Glossy Lips

Who else can’t leave the house without gloss or lipstick? The Butter Bomb Gloss by Ruby Kisses is a pigmented gloss that gives you a silky, non-sticky shine! This butter gloss is infused with Vitamin E, and you can wear it alone or layer it with your favorite lipstick. Red is always a good idea, so my fave is the Butter Gloss in Cold Blooded!
