Editor’s tip: Reduce the appearance of flyaways with the VO5 Flyaway Touch-Up Wand. The handbag essential helps with any loose hairs and reduces the appearance of split ends. Stash in your handbag or at your desk for emergency hair touch-ups.

Bobby pins often come to the rescue but they are hardly party hair certified, are they? Which is why we suggest switching them out for some impressive jewel slides instead.

Wear yours crossed like the model above for a stylish finish that is worthy of any red carpet. Credit: @brittsully

Editor’s tip: For added radiance and multi-dimensional shine, reach for TONI&GUY Rose Gold Highlighter. Dab all over or on sections of the hair for shimmer lights.
