You know the type of morning: You wake up, your hair just isn’t cooperating and you don’t know what to do with it. Even though we might not want to admit it, we’ve all had bad hair days.
So, I asked a Progressions Salon Mall of America® professional stylist to show me her favorite trick to overcome even the worst hair days.
Hair Hack: The Braid
A braid is a great way to hide bad hair day imperfections. I decided to try a simple twist on the classic braid. My stylist used two awesome Aveda products that worked perfectly with the texture of my hair: the Aveda shampure™ Thermal Dry Conditioner and pure abundance™ Hair Potion.
For this flexible hair hack, you can choose from a variety of braid types: a fishtail, French braid, classic braid, or a two strand twist. I opted for the classic braid to adorn the crown of my head. The stylist added a chunky/deconstructed look by simply pulling apart the braid in loose strands. She then crossed the braids in the back to hide the ends and secured them with bobby pins. To finish off the look, she used Aveda air control™ light hold hair spray.
Tip: Create a few beachy waves in seconds with a curling iron, crimper or flat iron.
I loved the results. With this one simple technique, the fear of a bad hair day is in the past!
