Every good blowout starts with a good round brush. I wish you could just bust out your paddle brush but I've learned the hard way, if you want sleek, you gotta go round. So definitely get yourself a round brush. Choose the size that's right for your hair and biceps. Blowouts involve #werk.
Donut Hair Bun Maker
That perfect donut bun doesn't just magically appear. I think everyone remembers the day they first learned you could actually roll up a tube sock and hide it in your tresses to create that look (and might I say, it's an honor and a privilege if this is that moment for you). But why not have an accessory specifically designed for it and save socks for your feet? 3 Piece Donut Hair Bun Maker complete with details and reviews on how to use it.
Super curly haired gals are usually told air drying is ideal. But who wants to roll into work with wet hair on the reg? Sometimes to feel 'put together,' and to ensure the most volume, a curly mane has to befriend a hair dryer. Enter the diffuser attachment. A few tips for most effective diffuser usage: use the low-speed setting on the dryer, finger comb through hair when it's still wet then gently wrap in a towel for a few minutes. Then apply mousse or gel and scrunch, prior to diffusing. Important tip: Short, stubby prongs are a no-go.
While "scarf pony" might sound like a dance move from the 70s, it's actually a fun way to dress up your average ole' ponytail. Free People makes a ton of cute ones. Scarf ponies are very Gossip Girl meets Riverdale—but you don't have to be an actress on a hit TV show about high school angst to pull one of these off.
If you're planning to hit a music festival this year, you better get your BoHo headband ready. Free People kills it again with these, offering a wide variety of colors and patterns. Go to Coachella, go to the beach, or just look really stylish keeping your hair out of your face to cook or paint. These look good on all hair textures and lengths so no matter how you use them, you'll use them a lot.
Not just a fave of your grandma between beauty salon visits anymore, shower caps don't get enough credit. A good shower cap can be a lifesaver between blowouts. Finding yourself a shower cap of your choice, and design as well, is better than anything you'd steal from a hotel bathroom. It's designed to keep out the moisture and hold a lot of hair. I know I'm not alone when I say, I'll do anything to avoid washing my hair just one more day.
Search 'Baby's Breath Hair' on Etsy and you're golden. There are so many different ways to add this whimsical accessory—clip it, pin it, braid it or secure it around your head.
