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.
