There’s no denying that getting ready in the morning is one big sigh. This is why we need beauty hacks to make our morning routines simpler. But no matter how many hacks, tricks, and tips you follow, sometimes the early a.m. gets the best of us, and we can’t escape the occasional bad hair and makeup days. Don’t let them get you down though. Instead, laugh a little at yourself as you relate to these hilarious, but frustrating, morning scenarios.

This is you at work…because getting ready is exhausting.
