    3 hours max. Wash at least part of my hair. Shave etc. About 20-30 mins doing my make-up because I'm slow, or I'll muck it up. Then I spend absolutely ages doing stupid things to my hair, because I have extensions and I'm a bit over the top.

    I do them while I watch TV - Multi-tasker!! ;)

    i'm still unsure what you do to your eyebrows that takes so long. :p

    About 10 minutes in the morning. More if I can be arsed to put my make-up on before I leave the houe.

    Evenings vary greatly. If I dont nned to bath/wash my hair/shave I can be ready in about 30 minutes. If I need to do the above and straighten my hair etc. then I need an hour/hour and a half. I like being able to take my time. My ex used to phone me and say he was leaving now to pick me up so I had ten minutes to change, do my make-up and make my stuff for the next day. I got very quick at it.

    It takes me a while to pluck my eyebrows too.

    If i'm getting ready for a big night out, I can take up to three hours :D But I do spend a good 1 hour and 45 minutes of that with a cuppa and watching Will and Grace.

    Depending on how long it has been since I last plucked them, sometimes it takes me about 15 minutes to do mine PROPERLY. Like, absolutely perfect.

    That's rare though. I get really >.< about my eyebrows and tend to think that people will think I'm a freak if I even have one out-of-place hair :|.

    I think eyebrows are important to get right, if not done properly they can make you look shitty!

    yeh but i tend to pluck stray hairs when they need doing not all in one go. :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I do the odd few during the week, but i do the majority in one go. Plus It's too much hassle, as I have a little boy to keep entertained! He's griefing me up already while I'm typing this!! :crazyeyes

    I imagine a picture, where you are totally absorbed by the TV plucking your eyebrows, and after a while, when you look in the mirror, one brow looks like Mr.Spocks and the other one isn't there anymore.

    For a proper night out, at least an hour. Thats when I put my hair up without drying it.

    i assume she says at least an hour because she leaves it to dry/to some extent.

    I need about 2 hours for a big night out. 1 hour for getting ready to meet my mate/work.. and about 30 minutes if I have a quick shower and don't wash my hair since I got in the door 30 minutes ago ;) ha.

    I let it dry partially, and then put it up whilst its still damp because its awful to put up in a sleek style if its completely dry, but if I don't wash it it looks dirty. I feel fine and perfectly done up, thanks very much.

    Takes me an hour/hour and a half if I have to shower & wash hair.
    Usually I wash my hair in the morning though so it only takes me 15-20 mins. I don't really spend a lot of time getting ready.

    I can get ready in 10-15 minutes no sweat. Never spend more than 5 mins in a shower, you wash yourself and get out, all this standing about shit is pointless imo. Get dried in 2-3 minutes, get changed in 2 minutes and spend 2-3 minutes on hair and spray and shit and you're away. Shaving adds another 5 or so minutes to that if it's needed.

    Feet are a cunt to dry properly.

    At least half an hour, always end up having to iron something even if it has been ironed already and hung up or put in drawers, I think I may have OCD! Also hate doing the hair, mines is so thick + I always end up messing around with my fringe as I have to disguise the receeding hair line:banghead:
