What Happens in Vegas, Goes on Instagram: Go-To Hair for Your Night in Sin City
If you are flying to Nevada, and want to travel light and keep your hair options open, we offer compact travel sets (that fit in a carry-on!) like our Jet Setter Pro Mini Tools. They come with everything you need to rock a variety of styles without weighing down your suitcase.
And, of course, to prolong any styles you create while on your trip, we highly recommend having a powder-based dry shampoo like our This Dry Shampoo is Everything in tow.
Winning Big Curls
If there is any time to do hair that is as big as possible, it's when you're in Vegas. Our Classic Curling Wand in the 32mm barrel is a must for big hair. For more of a low-key, natural curl, the Classic Curling Wand Pearl is another great option. Start with a good blowout using a root lifter like the NuMe Root Werk Root Lifter or Blah to Bouncy Blow Dry Cream. Then section off hair into two parts - top and bottom - and work the wand in alternating direction on either side of your head starting from the back till you complete curling all sections. Flip your head over and loosen curls with your fingers before sealing with a setting spray like Freeze Please Finishing Spray. And if you want to sport night-after curls for the pool party the next day, our Dirty to Flirty Dry Shampoo Aerosol is great for amping up the volume one more time and dealing with any oiliness at the roots.
Coming Out On Top Knot
Full disclosure, this one is inspired by JLo. Honor her residency at Planet Hollywood (RIP) with a sleek top knot. This tutorial by beauty influencer MakeUpByGio shows a simple step by step for creating this club-ready bun. You'll need to make sure you start with getting hair as smooth as possible. Las Vegas weather works in favor for those who deal with frizz because it's so dry. Nevertheless, we still suggest prepping wet hair with Argan Oil before drying to achieve sleek and shiny. Then after drying, straighten all over and tame any short or baby strands with a slimmer flat iron like the Fashionista Hair Straightener. A simple top knot is also a great excuse to go all out with smokey eyes and huge earrings—and perfect for all-night dance sessions and sunrise buffet runs.
High Rolling Hair
If you've always wanted to try a retro-glam look, Vegas is the perfect spot to give it a go. It can be a vibe that's very red carpet meets old school casino. This Toni&Guy video shows a simple process for getting Oscar-style hair using a curling wand, plenty of curl clips and soft bristle brush. The key points to keep in mind when watching this video are how to section off the hair, the alternating direction you should wrap it around the wand, and keeping the section of hair that's being wrapped flat rather than twisted. Our Hairfie Ready Finishing and Shine Spray is the perfect topper to keep this look set while you roll the dice.
If you want to do a throwback high hair that's more 80s/90s and REALLY go big or go home, you'll need a good blow out, a teasing comb and a texturizing spray, which a root lifter can double as if you spray it 8 to 10 inches away from dry hair.
