The Ultimate Hair Hacks for When You Just Can’t
Don’t get us wrong, we love playing dress-up. However, even the best of us have lazy days where we don’t have the time or energy to get our hair on point. These five hair hacks are the perfect way to still nail that look with minimal effort.
1. Tame Those Flyaways
If you have days where you just can’t with those pesky flyaways, this hair hack is for you. Coat a cleaned mascara brush or an old toothbrush with hairspray. Use the tiny bristles to smooth out any unflattering flyaways. The combination of fine brushing with a strong spray is going to save you time (and potential damage) from trying to apply heat to straighten and smooth them down.
2. Volumize in Your Sleep
Let your hair do the work while you get your beauty rest. Just before going to sleep, spray your locks with a volumizing spray. Don’t forget to do that hair flip to spray the under layers as well. Then twirl all your hair and place it in a bun. Secure with a no-damage hair scrunchie like Bobble or bobby pins. Wake up feeling recharged with this time-saving hair hack. You’ll be ready to take on the day and so will your hair. Take it down and rearrange it with your fingers, if needed. Finish with your favorite hairspray for maximum hold.
3. Go from Greasy to Shiny
Let’s be real, nobody washes their hair everyday. That greasy hair look happens to the best of us. Hack your oils from fine to shine. Apply dry shampoo and style with your hair pulled back into a bun or ponytail. If you must let those waves down, spray with dry shampoo and give your hair a quick once over with a blow dryer to get rid of any excess oil. Either way, that grease will be immediately disguised as a trendy high gloss moment.
4. Give Your Pony a Boost
In need of a hair hack that will create locks of envy? A pony is the way to go when you’re pressed for time. Boost the boring with length and volume. Start by dividing your hair into one top and one bottom layer. Create a high pony using the top layer only. Place the remaining hair directly underneath it in a low ponytail. Make sure the high pony is centered so it covers the bottom one. That layered effect will create the illusion of not only more body, but also more length.
5. Clip and Then Dip
If you want to enhance that beautiful mane with minimal effort, try DIY Band It halo extensions or Clip It clip in hair extensions. Revel in the simplicity of gorgeous, salon-quality Remy hair extensions that take minutes to apply and require minimal maintenance. These customizable extensions are the definition of a quick fix. Just clip, and then dip to your next destination with voluminous locks looking full of secrets.
When it comes to your hair, sometimes you just can’t – and that’s ok. We got you covered with these hair hacks. Which one will you use first?
