Gather your air-dried hair up into a bun and use a hair tie to hold your look in place. Finish off with a mist of TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend Hold Level 4 to lock in your style. Believe us, when life gets back to normal, you’re going to want to take this look out on the town for a spin. Meanwhile, mix yourself a drink and hop onto FaceTime for a virtual night out!
