Of course, we offer plenty of great hair styling products to ensure your mane stays in prime condition, but did you know some of your beauty products can double as hair fixer-uppers in a pinch? Included are hair care tips and tricks to:
Touch up roots
Control stray hairs
Hair care PRO TIP FOR QUICK AND EASY ROOT TOUCH-UPS::
We are proud to offer R+Co Bright Shadows Root Touch-Up Spray to help hide grays in between salon visits; however, if you're traveling or need to save space in your kit, you can always add a light dusting of brow powder to the roots. Seal in with a hair spray to keep it in place all day!
PRO TIP FOR KEEPING STRAY HAIRS IN PLACE:
If you forgot your Dart Pomade Stick or can't seem to find your Jillian Dempsey Roadie Pomade in your bag, don't worry! It's not uncommon for folks to use their brow wax if it's just a few stray hairs you're hoping to tame. The secret to making this work is to apply only a small amount of pomade so that it doesn't appear heavy and wash it out once you no longer need to keep those fine hairs in place.
We've also had makeup artists tell us they'll use a little bit of kit staple Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate to tame frizzy hair for a quick photo op. Add a tiny amount between your palms and rub vigorously to evenly distribute the cream onto your hands, then lightly swipe across the surface of the hair to avoid putting too much into one area.
PRO TIP TO INCREASE MANAGEABILITY WITHOUT WEIGHING DOWN HAIR:
If you have fine hair and struggle with finding hair care products that don't weigh down your hair, we feel your pain! A quick and easy trick is to spritz a light mist of a styling wax spray onto your brush and lightly brush onto your hair with swift sweeping motions to ensure you don't concentrate the hair care product on any particular part of the hair shaft. Repeat this process until you achieve your desired amount of hold.
