The Art of the Midday Hair Fix

Creative Commons / Source: Costume.dk

We’ve all been there. Maybe you’re meeting an old friend for lunch, hitting up happy hour with colleagues, or planning a hot date after work. You look in the mirror and — Oh. My. God. The blowout you slaved over this morning has been replaced by something most unwelcome. To keep it from putting a damper on your day (or your look), here’s the Belle Salon & Spa guide to fixing your hair in a pinch.

The Problem: Flat Hair
Lank locks are the worst — but there’s an easy fix. Flip your head upside down and gently brush with a boar-bristle brush to redistribute oil and bring some oomph back. Ensure it doesn’t happen again with a simple volumizing product. Try Aveda Pure Abundance Style Prep, which is perfect for refreshing without adding weight, or even a light hold hair spray — Aveda Air Control smells so good, it doubles as a subtle perfume.

The Problem: Oily Roots

You know where we’re going with this: dry shampoo. It not only keeps oiliness at bay, but also adds lift and can even mask dark roots. We make a practice of keeping fresh-smelling Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo on hand, but a sprinkle of baby powder or even corn starch works in a pinch.

The Problem: Unsightly Frizz
What was glossy and sleek in the morning, by the evening rarely is. Smooth frizz or static electricity with Aveda Light Elements Smoothing Fluid. It works fine on dry hair, but be sparing with your application and use less than you would on wet hair (start with a pea-sized drop).

The Problem: Bedraggled Ends

If you’re prone to dry, frizzy ends, tame them into submission with Aveda Dry Remedy Oil. Emulsify a few drops in your hands and apply from the mid-shaft down to the ends. Alternately, tuck into a simple, chic chignon. You know what they say: out of sight, out of mind.

The Problem: Elastic-Induced Kinks
There’s a reason braids have a rep for being the perfect bad-hair-day remedy. Keep a few in your arsenal for a fast solution to feeling like you have something to show off (vs. something to cover up). These tutorials make it much easier than you think to master braids of the French, fishtail, and even waterfall variety.

The Problem: Unruly Curls
The nature of curls dictates that you often need to add moisture before you can restyle. Manage the situation by running wet hands through your hair until it’s damp, but not saturated with water. Apply Aveda Be Curly Curl Enhancer or Curl Controller (depending on your end goal), allow to air dry, and consider your curls conquered.

Now get out there and have an excellent time. You look fab.
