Whether you came into the salon for a bouncy blow-out or used your at-home styling skills for the perfect plait, extending the life of your ‘do can be an easy way to save time in the morning. With these expert tricks, keeping your mane looking magnificent all week long – sans shampoo – will be a breeze.
Start with perfectly styled hair. Whether it’s a sleek blow-out or styled curls, hair should stay down all day to show off your freshly washed mane. At night, wrap hair in a silk scarf to protect and maintain smooth strands.
Roots are likely to start appearing flat by day 2. Give them a boost by spraying a mineral powder-based formula, like L’Oréal Professionnel Crépage de Chignon, on the roots. You can also opt for a casual pinned back style to hide the roots.
By day 3, your hair has some natural hold to play around with. Spray with Tecni.Art Next Day Hair from roots to ends for a disheveled texture and braid into a tousled fishtail. The braid will hold nicely all day while keeping hair tame and hiding any unwanted shine.
From the braid the previous day, hair should have effortlessly tousled waves. To disguise roots, rock a thick headband and style hair into a messy chignon or leave down to show off the sexy texture.
On Day 5, hair that tends to be oily will be quite dirty and prone to excessive shine. Embrace the sheen by adding extra luster with Kérastase Elixir Ultime Oil and slicking the hair back into a high ballerina bun. This look is meant to be sleek and shiny – so no need to feel self-conscious about your unwashed roots!
And voila! You’ve successfully extended your style for an entire work week. Now, time for a wash before the weekend.
