Just when you thought spring was around the corner.... Sweet Home Chicago had another idea, SNOW! For all of you that booked an emergency vacation, here are some tips to looking your best on your get away. Because even your hairstylist vacates their hair routine while traveling.
Hats and Accessories
Nothing is more chic than a floppy felt hat or a barre! Also, thank goodness beanies are in this winter to help create an effortless, instantly cool look. If you are feeling like a gypsy, bring a scarf and tie it however you please. You are a jet-setter, after all! A different accessory, like a hat or scarf, changes up your daily look if you are on a cooler weather trip. Save the blow dry for cocktails and dinners and get out the door ASAP to take in the sights.
While traveling, be sure to use a dry shampoo powder. A powder targets oil at the source and you can use it multiple days in a row without tangling your ends. Plus, it is easier to travel without aerosol and this product does double duty in your travel cosmetic bag by replacing other aerosol products. Blow dry the powder in for extra volume and easy on-the-go styling in place of your normal volumizer.
Here are our favorite non aerosol dry shampoo options: Evo's Haze Powder, sprinkle on your hair for an instant refresh. Not a fan of powders? Badlands from R+Co does the job while adding extra texture.
Never count on your airbnb host or hotel for a good blow dryer with a nozzle. A nozzle is key to smoothing down fly aways and touching up bangs. Spray a little Dallas on your bangs for fly aways and blow dry with a flat brush and Voilà - you faked a blow dry in less than five minutes. If it is a must for your routine, bring only one iron!
Don't forget to pack a small bag or tin (just make sure it has a tight seal) with a variety of hair pins and bobbies, as well as a few thin hair bands and even a thick one. Putting your hair up is a great way to make a blow dry last into the 3rd day. Thank you Kardashian's for bringing the french braids back!
See your stylist before you jet off! Make sure you are going into your trip with fresh color, bangs trimmed and highlights toned to make styling even easier!
