You don’t have to wash your hair every day. In fact, second day hair can look just as good or better than the day before!
The beautiful women on my 4 Types Beauty Panel are all experts at great every day hair styles. And they want to share some hair styling tips so every single day (including that second day!) can be a good hair day:
How to have the best second day hair
- The Best Cut:
Good hair days depend on a good cut. Marcy, our bright, animated Beauty Expert prefers the layers from a razor cut. But Sheryl, our bold, striking Expert loves the nice, clean line that scissors make.
Learn which techniques support your Type of beauty. And trust your beauty sixth sense so you can communicate confidently with your hairstylist.
- The Best Color:
Fall’s coming up. And the fashion and beauty industry often tell us to go darker this time of year. But for some Types of beauty, that just won’t work.
No matter what you do to first or second day hair, it won’t look good if you have the wrong color. Make sure your color supports YOU, not the time of year.
Watch the video to find out why bright, animated Marcy actually highlights her hair come fall—and which fun Type 1 color looks just fabulous with it!
- The Best Style:
To get good style with second day hair, you have to lock that style in place on the first. Use the right tools while the blow dryer is on, and you won’t have to struggle to style your hair when it’s dry.
How? Change the blow dryer setting. As a Type 3, I thought hotter and faster was better. But I turned it down and learned a trick to cut down on frizz. Click here if you haven’t seen it yet.
- The Best Second Day Hair!
Get it right the first time. Use product and 5 extra minutes getting things right on the first day and your second day hair will just need smoothing product to touch up. You might even make it to third-day hair.
Wash your bangs. Sarah, our rich, dynamic Beauty Expert, pulls her hair back in the shower with a headband and washes just her bangs. This gives her fresh hair around her face without styling everything again.
Refresh (or don’t). There are some great dry shampoos out there—like the Dressing Your Truth True Refresh—to perk up your hair on second days. Use it if you like it. But remember, always check in with your beauty sixth sense. Sheryl explains in the video why she doesn’t like second day hair at all.
