In this week’s video, you will learn some easy tips and tricks to get the perfectly polished blow out in no time!
The most important tip is that you can do a super crazy quick dry to get most of the moisture out and then use your round brush as a styling tool at the end. No sectioning. No clips. No fuss.
Happy Styling, lovelies!!
Ok guys, Im gonna let you in on a little secret...
I have GRAY hair. Like, A LOT of gray hair. (If I grew it out I would look like Cruella Deville, no joke) I got my first one at 21 and they just continue to multiply on the daily, much to my dismay.
In our society there is such a double standard when it comes to going gray. When men get a little salt and pepper it makes them sexy (see George Clooney, McSteamy) and when women go gray it makes us a spinster old maid who must live with her parents or have 52 cats. SOOOO NOT FAIR! Even as a hairstylist, I don't want to be coloring my hair every 3-4 weeks. (A'int nobody got time for that!) So, what can you do in between visits to hide those pesky grays??? Let me share a few little tricks with you!
One of the easiest ways to cover those grays in a pinch is to use something I'm sure everyone has... EYESHADOW. Find a matte shadow that is close to (or even a little darker) than your hair color and carefully tap it onto your roots where you part your hair. Finish it off with a little hairspray to set it and you're good to go!
Another easy way (and my preferred method) is to use a root touch-up spray. There are a bunch of them popping up on the market (and I have tried a LOT) so I thought I'd share my 2 faves with you.
Age Beautiful Root Spray available at Sally Beauty Supply This one is great and is the more affordable option. It has a texture kinda like dry shampoo. The only drawback is that it can rub off a little when you touch it. (Be careful if you wear your sunglasses on your head or you could end up with a brown nose!) ((I speak from experience lol))
Loreal Professional Hair Touch Up available at Beauty Plus Salon and right now you can get 10% off with code APRIL10 !! This one is hands down my fave. It sprays on a little wet but after it dries it is set and doesn’t rub off as easily. Winning!!!
Super super easy! I just style my hair like normal and at the end I lift up each side and spray the roots! (I do one side at a time to avoid getting it on my scalp)
VOILA!! No more gray for the day!!
Hope sharing this little secret of mine will help y’all keep your “natural highlights” a secret too!!
Side note; please excuse my morning face and specs! 🤓😝
