Let’s be frank. You wouldn’t repeat an outfit two days in a row – so why does your ‘do not get the same treatment? Enter: the hair wardrobe. Comprised of seven looks and their corresponding styling products, our curated styling guide will help you beat hair boredom while you stay at home.
Intrigued? The concept is inspired by a Korean hair trend where women use specific products to address their exact hair needs throughout the week.
Stripped down to the absolute hair necessities of each look, ATH makes a case for rebooting your styling routine, one day at a time…
Monday: The Power Ponytail
New week, new hair goals. Give your ‘working from home’ week a strong start with a no-frills high ponytail. Keep the look current by accessorising with an embellished hair tie or (for extra oomph) a glitzy oversized slide.
Keep it sleek with a bit of gel. Use the TRESemmé Extra Hold Styling Hairspray for a firm hold and to keep those stray hairs away.
Tuesday: Braided Ponytail
Day two hair calls for dry shampoo. Perk up your locks with a healthy mist of the TRESemmé Instant Refresh Cleansing Dry Shampoo, directed at the roots.
Not only will this formula leave your hair feeling refreshed, it will also give it a healthy amount of grip.
If you’re looking for a softer finish, try a loose braid worn low at the nape of your neck. Alternatively, master the French, Dutch or fishtail variety to show off your pro plaiting skills. That’s a lot of styles to add to your hair wardrobe!
Wednesday: Mid-Week Waves
Wednesday day blues? We feel you. Luckily, there’s an easy-to-do, high-impact hairstyle you can add to your at-home hair wardrobe: heatless waves. The best part? You can achieve this while you get some much needed mid-week shut-eye.
Named after its styling method, this wave-making technique will help you take advantage of your beauty sleep. Plus, save you some precious minutes in the morning. All you need to do is braid your hair before you sleep and undo the braids in the morning.
Keep your waves in place with a light-hold hairspray. The Toni&Guy Tousled Texture Creation Hairspray will help give your waves some texture while retaining their shape.
Thursday: Half-Up Hair
Trust us, a half-up-half-down hairdo is a secret to looking like you’ve made an effort, even when you’re slowly running out of energy. It’s the perfect catfish hairstyle to add to your hair wardrobe! No-one on a conference call even suspects the minimal effort required for your ‘do.
Keep this look low-maintenance by saying “bye!” To flyaways. Just spray a bit of the TRESemmé Firm Hold Hairspray and smooth the hair with your hands.
Friday: Updo With lots of Sass
Work hard, play hard! Your end-of-week up-do needs some serious after-hours appeal, even if you are staying at home and watching Netflix.
Now you’ve got extra time on your hands (after work, of course), you can totally spend your evening mastering a new hairstyle to add to your hair wardrobe. Don’t forget to share a #HairSelfie!
Up-dos really shine on healthy-looking hair, so give it the gloss that it needs. Not only does the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Oil give your hair a healthy shine, it also smells amazing. Double win!
Saturday: Straight Hair
This look is stylish, understated and goes with practically everything, regardless of what length your tresses are.
Heat styling is necessary for this look, but heat-damage isn’t! Apply the TRESemmé Heat Defence Spray to your hair before reaching for your hair tools. This will keep your hair safe and help make it smooth and silky.
Sunday: Top Knot
Sundays call for two things: treatments and top knots. Give your locks some well-earned pampering with a product that promises a trifecta of beauty benefits: protecting, strengthening and nourishing.
We love, love, love the Dove Intensive Repair Treatment Mask as it gives your hair all this and more. The mask uses Nutri-Keratin Repair Actives to fortify hair protein, progressively nourishing deep inside the hair strands.
