Make Your Weekend Blow-Dry Last For Days

Not one for the beachy hair of Spring? Well, you’re in luck, because the sleek blow-dry is on trend. But sometimes, maintaining a blow-dry once you’ve wrestled your hair into this shiny, sexy style is easier said than done. Don’t think you’re up for the challenge? We’ve got five tips to turn your hair from flimsy to fabulous.
- Opt for a casual texture: “The trick to keeping a blow-dry is to keep it a little bent at the ends,” Mark Townsend, celebrity stylist for stars like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, said. That means forget the super-sleek, straight blowout. Use a round brush to add a small bend to the ends for texture and hold.
- Ease up on the product: Overdosing on products is a sure-fire way to wind up with greasy strands that won’t hold up. Instead, fix yourself a regimen of products that are lightweight, and stick to only two or three. Keep them away from your roots to avoid product buildup there, too.
