But a drastic change in hairstyles calls for a drastic change in products on how I style my hair. The first revelation? I didn’t have to wash my hair everyday. And better yet, it looked BETTER the longer I waited to wash it!
Friends, it takes an army. But thanks to my amazing hair guru, Nadine Matar, I’ve learned how to keep my short tresses looking fresh with my new favorite hair brand, R+Co.
This is usually my least favorite hair day, but I love getting to use my R+Co MOON Shine Shampoo. It smells SO GOOD and makes my hair the absolute softest. After my shower, I spritz some Prep Spray all over my hair so it’s protected against everything I’m going to do to it! Next, I put a little Park Avenue Blow Out Balm through my hair before I blow it (completely) dry.
I’ll almost always curl my hair (Nadine’s tutorial right this way) with a wand in small, one inch sections. Then I spray the also-amazing-smelling R+Co Outer Space Flexible Hairspray and I’m ready to go!
I love day two. Like LOVE my day two hair. It’s usually a bit messy in the AM so I’ll spray some dry shampoo (not pictured) on my roots and all around, really. I use the R+Co Badlands Dry Shampoo paste on my roots and ends, then the R+Co Rockaway Salt Spray for some added texture. I’ll likely spray a little more Outer Space hairspray, and since it’s flexible, I never get that icky hard, crunchy hair. Again, the products smell amaze.
If I go with a more refined look, I’ll brush through my waves after spraying the dry shampoo. Then I’ll spray the Outer Space hairspray throughout my hair to keep its shape and I’m out the door!
Day three can go one of two ways - if I’m feeling like I don’t want to deal with it, I’ll put it up in a half bun on top of my head with some bobby pins to give me some extra volume in the front. Or it’ll go up into a pony. Either way, I’m really getting into my Dry Shampoo and Dry Shampoo paste. And I’m being careful about using just enough products to help get rid of the grease at my roots without weighing my hair down. That’s why I love these products - none of them weigh me down.
You can find all these incredible products at the PR at Partners on K Street. And while you’re there, be sure to make an appointment with one of their talented stylists!
