Use a Light Weight Hairspray

I’m not talking about the Aqau Net from the 80s. That stuff could anything in place for a lifetime. Now there are tons of great hairsprays that bind hair together so it stays where you want it, but without that dreaded crispy look and feel. You want a medium hold, flexible spray that isn’t too wimpy to last all day, but isn’t so strong that it could last forever. Experiment with products to find the one you love best.

***

When seeking out the perfect spray, consider weather conditions and your hair type. If you have fine hair or live in a humid climate, you'll need a formula that combats frizz without weighing down your strands. For those with thicker hair, look for something with a bit more grip. Remember, the secret is in the application! Hold the can about 10 inches away from your hair and mist lightly, layering more as needed. This approach gives you control and allows for natural movement, keeping your hairdo looking fresh and fabulous throughout the day.

Tease Your Hair at the Roots

Not only will teasing your hair at the roots give you loads of great volume, but it also adds some texture to your hair, which helps it stay where you want it to. Experts say to wet your hair, massage in a bit of mousse, then tease it at the roots. Blow dry as usual and the combination of mousse and the teasing will help hold an updo all day long.

***

To achieve the perfect tease, divide your hair into manageable sections, taking one at a time. Backcomb each section gently at the base using a fine-tooth comb; think of it as lightly brushing against the natural direction of your hair. Resist the urge to overdo it, as too much teasing can damage your hair. When done right, this technique creates a cushiony base that keeps hair updos intact. A light spritz of hairspray will seal in your hard work, making your volumized look last from morning to night.

Try Put Some Cute Accessories in Your Hair

I have the most trouble keeping the hair around my face where it needs to be. That’s why I keep a bunch of bobby pins and cute barrettes on hand. When things aren’t doing what you want them to do, use some adorable hair accessories and the problem will just be part of your style. Headbands and clips also work well and can give your look some pizzazz with ease.

***

Accessorizing isn't just functional; it can be a centerpiece of your day's look. Opt for sparkling pins to turn heads or a silk scarf for a touch of boho chic. Even on days when your hair refuses to cooperate, a strategically placed flower clip or a vintage comb can transform a hair mishap into a deliberate statement. Remember, the key is in the mix; combine practicality with creativity, and suddenly, those pesky flyaways become part of your intentionally artful ensemble.

Make Sure You Work Your Products into Your Hair Really Well

Whether you use mousse, curl cream or some other styling product, make sure you are working through your strands really well so that your entire head gets some. Experts suggest applying product to damp or wet hair so it adheres better. Use your fingers to make sure you get even amounts of product at the roots all the way down to the tips.

***

For those fickle flyaways, it’s worth taking a few extra minutes to painstakingly distribute your chosen product. Using a wide-tooth comb or your fingers can help you get to those often neglected underlayers. Remember, the goal is to achieve a consistent hold and texture, so don't rush this step. A little patience here can save you the hassle of stray hairs later on. Be mindful not to overdo it, though—a dollop should suffice. Too much product can lead to a greasy look, and no one wants their efforts to backfire into a bad hair day.

5

Try a Blast of Cold Air to Set Your Look

Whether you want your updo or a down and loose style to stay in place, use the cold setting on your blow dryer to set your hair. Use the warm setting to get your strands dry and help you get your look. Once it’s finished, blast it with a couple shots of cold air, which helps hold your hair in place.

***

The cool air works wonders by sealing the hair cuticles and fixing whatever style you've worked hard to achieve. Aim the nozzle at your roots and give your head a quick, thorough blast, moving in the direction of your hair to smooth it down. This simple yet effective trick not only gives a lasting hold but also enhances shine for that picture-perfect finish. It's your secret weapon for those special occasions when you just can't afford to have a single strand out of place.

6

Blow Dry, Comb and Brush Your Hair in the Direction You Want It Stay

If your hair tends to frizz out or fall down, try styling it in the direction you want to go. That includes when you dry your hair, comb it or brush it. This way, you “train” your locks to fall where you want them, which makes it infinitely easier to make them stay where they need to be.

Try Something Entirely New

Can’t get a certain look to stay put? Quit wasting your time and try something else. All styles don’t work on all hair types or lengths so you might be trying to get your hair to do something that goes against its nature. Experiment with other cute styles and you’re bound to find something that stays put and that you love.

Tease?! Omg people still do that?! I could never damage my hair like that. Tresseme has some great light weight hairsprays.

#2 is a recipe for breakage. Never EVER tease wet, damp, anything but dry hair. Sincerely, a licensed cosmetologist.

I use Tresemme too, and it works very well.
