4 Fast Runway Fixes for Bad Hair Days

Racing the clock in the morning to perfectly primp AND get to work on time can be a challenge. Throw an unruly mane into the mix, and your frustration meter just shot to the roof! According to Cutler/Redken Hairstylest Jenny Bading, if you arm yourself with a few runway hairstyles you can turn any bad hair day into the best hair day ever! Trust us--these beat wearing a baseball cap any day. 

Wet Finish: If your hair is greasy
For the "wet finish"--spotted on Rebecca Taylor's and Alexander Wang's spring runways--apply small amounts of Redken Full Frame 07 Protective Volumizing Mousse throughout strands, squirting about a golf ball size into your palm. Comb through damp strands using a wide tooth comb to evenly distribute, and let hair air dry. 

Braided Up-Do:  If your hair is frizzy
Braided up-dos were seen on the spring 2012 runways at Tadashi (lead by Rodney Cutler of Cutler/Redken Salon) and Valentino. To get this look, Bading suggests creating disheveled French braids throughout the hairline area, all the way around the head. "Then loosely pin up the tail and ends, pinning up lightly in the back," says Bading. 

Mussed-Up Waves: If your hair is limp and lifeless
Libertine (hair by Noah Hatton for Cutler/Redken Salon) and Cynthia Steffe had sexy bed-head waves for spring 2012. A quick fix for bed head is to spray the roots with dry shampoo, while your head is upside-down. "Then you can mess it with a light hair spray," says Bading.
