 1. Keep it Sleek

Woke up late? Need to cover-up greasy roots? No problem! Opt for a sleek straight look with your headband. To achieve this, use the Love, Beauty and Planet Smooth and Serene Argan Oil & Lavender Leave-in Smoothie Cream. Starting at the midshaft of your hair to the ends, apply 5-8 pumps throughout wet or dry hair to achieve a frizz-free look. This will keep your hair smooth all day long. Plus, it’s perfect for humid summer days.

2. Dress up a Basic Pony 

Sometimes a basic ponytail just needs a little extra pizazz. Use your favorite headband to create a chic ponytail look—perfect for a day at the office or casual day with friends. To create a smooth ponytail spritz TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Level 2, and then use a comb to tame any flyaways or baby hair. The superfine mist will penetrate deeply into your hair, which will lock everything down while still allowing your hair to move naturally.

3. Pair with Loose Waves 

Loose waves are the ultimate effortless, yet put-together style to pair with your headband. To start, prep your hair with the TRESemmé Repair and Protect 7 Pre Styling Spray. Using a heat protectant is one of the most important steps when styling your hair. This spray will protect your hair from your styling tools, prevent split ends, and control frizz.

Next, create waves by wrapping one-inch sections of hair around a curling iron and brushing them out. To finish off the look, use Nexxus Styling Comb Thru Finishing Mist to give your waves frizz free hold while still maintaining volume and bounce.
