“When your hair looks good, you feel good and in this time of uncertainty, feeling good about yourself and spending extra time on you is important,” says Brodie-Lee Tsiknaris, GHD creative artist and owner of Rokstar salon.
So as our professional lives shift from the office to Zoom and Skype calls, these simple and fast hair styles and tips take minimum effort but have maximum payoff and will have you feeling and looking ready to take on the day.
1. Revive Dirty Hair
Perhaps this is a good time to try pushing out your hair washing routine an extra day or two, your colour treatment will love you for it. For those days when your hair feels weighed down with oil, revive dirty strands with a spritz of dry shampoo. “Don’t underestimate the power of dry shampooing and a quick blast with your hair dryer. This will give you that beautiful and fresh blown-out look with lots of volume – no matter how dirty your hair is,” says Tsiknaris.
Simply spray dry shampoo onto roots, use your fingers to massage then blast with your hair dryer to soak up any excess oils.
2. Love Your Bun
Ever heard of the ‘productivity ponytail’? There’s something about having your hair pulled-back off your face that assists in just getting things done. A slicked bun worn chic and low at the nape of your neck or high for added skin-tightening benefits, looks well-kempt and clean.
3. Style It Smooth
Nothing says, ready-for-business like a sleek, straight style. “This look never goes out of fashion and screams sophistication, plus only takes 20 minutes maximum depending on your hair length and thickness,” says Tsiknaris.
To get longevity out of your straight locks, before styling spray damp hair with a smart spray such as Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray, which protects hair from heat damage, fights frizz, boosts shine and locks in the style until you wash it again.
4. Invest In Fast Tools
For professional-grade looks without the fuss, a great tool can get you there. “A hot brush is an absolute life-saver tool for me,” says Tsiknaris. “All you have to do to have perfect ready-to-conference hair is wake up, give your hair a detangle with a wide-tooth comb, spray your whole mane with heat protect spray and take thick sections and run the brush through.” Polish in a snap!
