911, I have a Hair Emergency

You're late, You're late for a  very important date! He's at your door, and your hair looks like the hair of the Mad Hatter! Whatever are you going to do?! 
                                                          
 Well, ladies and gentlemen, you are in luck! I have some great shortcuts to gorgeous hair that will take you from the Mad Hatter to Rupenzelicious. Well, maybe not quite Rapunzel, but, like, her cousin.  





Frizzy hair?  I can’t stress enough about keeping a flat iron brush around.  They are game changers. If there is one available, grab it. It heats up at the speed of light.  Quickly run it through the hair.  Thanks to its detangling bristles and polishing ceramic plates,  a flat-iron brush, will take your hair from frizzy to silky smooth within minutes! Press, slide and go! It's travel-friendly and an excellent way to straighten hair on the go.   If you don't have a flat iron brush, use hand lotion as an alternative smoothing cream. Edward Tricomi, co-owner of Warren-Tricomi Salons explains that “A dab of hand lotion gives flyaways weight. Also, the cream's moisture helps fight frizz by filling empty hair follicles, preventing them from soaking up any frizz-inducing moisture in the air.” Make sure you only use a dab so that it doesn't make your hair look greasy. 

BUT I LIKE MY CURLS. 

Want to keep the curls, but eliminate frizz?  Use a strong curl-conditioning spray. One of our favorites, Marc Anthony Strictly Curls 3 Day Curls Curl it Up Styling Spray, 6.8 fl oz .

Mist the spray on dry hair and comb it through with a wide-tooth comb. You can air-dry or dry with a diffuser for 1-3 minutes. Your hair will have as much bounce as a Beyonce video.  Shoot,  no product available?  Splash a little water or hand lotion on the hair and scrunch. In the case of a super emergency- side braid it girl! It's quick, cute and after about 45 minutes you can take it out, and your hair will have beautiful curly waves.  

Hair Flat as a pancake? 



Never fear the thickening spray (Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray 8oz  is a good one) and a round brush will help bring volume in seconds. First, mist the thickening spray onto the brush, doing so will help avoid weighing the hair down. Next, place the brush at the roots, and slowly wrap the brush around your hair. Blast the dryers cool button, then switch to hot for a few seconds- The temperature change helps hold and add volume. **It's very important to focus on the crown. That is where your hair holds the most volume.  When you're all done, you should look like a lion ready to rawwwrrr. No product on hand?  Flip hair upside down and “shampoo” your hair with your fingers and flip back over. If you're in a public restroom, do it under the hand dryer. Make this motion until you reach a decent amount of volume. 


Hair Dull As A Rock?

Brighten it up by adding highlights with a shimmering eyeshadow. That's right! When you're in a rush and don't have time to visit a stylist or cover up roots add a little color to your hair by spraying hairspray where you want the highlights, then brush in a shade of shimmering eyeshadow that matches your hair color. You'll go from a dull rock to THE dazzling rock! 
A ROCK
THE ROCK

Last, but certainly not least, if your hair is oily grab the dry shampoo, baby powder, ( if you're blonde)  or if you're really in a bind, a toilet seat cover. Believe it or not, they do a pretty good job at soaking up oil.
