Whether you’re late to your morning class or just trying to get your kids out the door, your hair might not always get the loving attention it deserves. Thankfully, it’s never been easier to turn yesterday’s style into a day two ‘do.
From easy side-braids to spray-and-go beach waves, these step-by-step tutorials will keep your hair looking fresh no matter when your last shampoo was.
1. Fake a Blowout
No one has to know your voluminous style is thanks to some crafty hairspray techniques.
Step 1: Spray your strands with Big Sexy Hair dry shampoo to lift any oil from your roots.
Step 2: To make sure the spray is evenly distributed, shake out your hair using your fingers. To eliminate excess dust from the dry shampoo, remember to massage the strands at your scalp.
Step 3: For extra hold, mist your locks with hairspray with your head upside down. This creates more volume and is the perfect final touch for a tousled summer style.
2. Boho Side Braid
The secret: pull your hair in front of your shoulder to avoid second day strands looking slicked back.
Step 1: For all-over texture that’s easier to style, mist dry hair with göt2b beach trippin’ salt infusion waving spray.
Step 2: Pull hair to one side and begin a loose braid. Leave a few strands out in the front to create a casual, relaxed look.
Step 3: Spray your braid and bangs with hairspray so the style stays in place.
3. Laidback Beach Waves
Bonus – your natural oils will help protect strands from heat damage. Hello, guilt-free curling.
Step 1: Mist John Frieda Beach Blonde Sea Waves spray onto yesterday’s style to add texture and grit.
Step 2: Heat up a curling wand and loosely wrap your hair around the iron. Hold for a few seconds, then shake the curl out. (Note: If your hair doesn’t hold curl well, let your strands cool before taking this step.)
4. Chic Ponytail
A sophisticated pony balanced with sky-high volume.
Step 1: Perfect for day-after curls or beach waves. To start, smooth your strands back with a bristle brush.
Step 2: Secure your ponytail with a clear elastic hair tie.
With these simple styles, your hair will look just as great on day two as day one.
