How to Make Your Hairstyle Last All Day (And Night!)

You put all this time and effort into making your hair look on point, and by the time you’re finished with work and ready for some real fun, it’s fallen flat! When there’s no time to start from scratch (which could take houuuurs) there’s a few foolproof ways to revive your locks and prevent them from losing their luster. The key is to start off strong and enjoy your bouncy mane all day and night long!

Styling Right:
Did you know that there are actually blowdrying mistakes and curling iron mistakes? Now that you know, prevent these beauty blunders and set your hair up by styling it — the right way! Use a heat protectant product like Kérastase Spray Fluidissime before using any hot tools to help your hair maintain shine and frizz control for 72 hours.

Hairspray:
A gift from the hair gods. Need we say more? Once you’ve styled your hair, give it a shot of Pureology Supreme Control Hairspray or Redken Quick Dry 18 – Instant Finishing Hair Spray to add high shine and long-lasting hold!

Texturizing Powder:
Pump up the volume by applying a small amount of texturizing powder like L’Oréal Paris True Grip Texturizing Powder or dry shampoo like Garnier Fructis Volume Extend to your roots and finger comb through to work in product. If at any point you feel like your hair needs a little lift and lovin’, give it a small spritz of this good stuff!

Bobby Pins:
If today is not a let-your-hair-down kinda day, secure it into a messy chignon or bun with some bobbies! The trick is to mist them with hairspray or a dry finish texture spray like Garnier Fructis De-Constructed Texture Tease, then slightly open the pin (should look like a V) and insert it vertically so that it’s nearly invisible. This technique will ensure that your hair stays in place all day and night — or try some bobby pin hair art to add some intrigue to your ’do!  

Overnight Tip:
Ready to salvage your hair for another night — or two!? A silk or satin pillowcase will allow you to sleep on your hairstyle and make it last by morning time.
