The Best Hairstyle For Second-Day Strands

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive here at Alan Coban Hair Studio is related to styling second-day hair. There are days when we don’t have time to lather up our hair and the traditional ponytail has always been a dependable hairstyle choice in making unwashed strands look more polished. Aside from gathering your hair into a pony, we find that a low-key updo like this one from Jessica Alba.

Steal this look by spritzing dry shampoo from the roots to the mid-lengths to create volume. Blow dry hair to add texture or grip to the hair. Gather hair into a low ponytail and secure it with an elastic hair tie. Wrap the length around the base of the ponytail and secure it with a bobby pin. Allow several tendrils to fall out to add more sophistication to the look. Finish by spritzing on some hairspray to keep the style in place.

 

Here’s Why You Should Never (Ever) Dye Your Hair at Home

Most box dyes provide permanent hair colouring and if you decide to alter the colour with a certified colourist, you might be advised to grow it all out first before a new layer of colour can be applied to your hair. It is difficult to calculate what will happen if salon customized hair colour will be put on top of the box dyed hair. But one thing is for sure – it could wreak havoc on your hair.

Hairstyle Inspiration Guide

One of the biggest hair obstacles that both men and women obsess about is that long and winding search for the perfect hairstyle that will enhance your overall appearance and will simply make us feel good about ourselves. Our hair is not called the “crowning glory” for nothing. A hairstyle can make or break your whole look so it’s important that you choose a particular style that will highlight your best features (and detract from the undesirable ones).

So, are you getting bored with your current hairstyle? Have you been combing through a lot of hair looks and hair trends lately that you end up confusing yourself even more? If your answer to these questions is “YES,” then prepare to have a look at our list of the best hairstyle websites to draw inspiration from. These hairstyle websites will help you find specific styles to talk ideas with your hair stylist for your upcoming haircut appointment.

Long black hair, blunt fringe, graphic brows, sculpted cheeks and black lips — we never thought that a Goth look would look amazing on the 19-year-old supermodel. We suspect it’s from a high profile fashion campaign for Fall. We’ll keep you posted once we get more information.

The blunt fringe is the real winner here, IOHO.
