1. The Blowout

What’s better than a fresh-out-of-the-salon blowout these days? A blowout will give you natural-looking hair long after your hair appointment with loads of bed-head texture. To keep a blowout in shape you’ll need to go through a few tricks before bed, which may require the use of your flat iron. But with your hectic schedule, jumping into bed after a long day seems more like it. Go with the flow, girlfriend. Refresh your hair with Dove Refresh + Care Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo to remove oil while adding volume and fullness to your hair. Brush your hair to work the product throughout and rough up your locks with your hands to encourage texture. For even more texture, dispense some of the Bed Head by TIGI Joyride Texturizing Powder Balm into your hands and apply to your hair to create definition and texture.

2. The Disheveled Beach Wave

In order for any type of cool beach wavy hairstyle to thrive, hair can’t be weighed down with oil and grease. If you’ve been wearing your wavy hairstyle for the past three days and want to extend the life of the look a little longer, you know the drill—dry shampoo! Formulized to make fine, limp and lifeless hair appear smooth, spray some of the Bed Head by TIGI Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo onto your roots to absorb oil and to give your hair volume and texture.

3. The Messy Bun

We all succumb to a tight bun when our hair is dirty. But, we totally have another option — the messy bun. In order to nail this light and airy mussed-up texture, limp hair is definitely not a part of the formula. Liberally apply some of the Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo onto your roots to revive hair. This will give your hair some seriously flawless body and volume before creating your über chic updo.
