17. Set your hairstyle by blasting it with cool air when you’re done.
Alternating between heat and cool-down helps to set your style.
19. Flat-iron your braids as a quick way to create waves.
20. Before attempting a sleek updo, spray your hands with hairspray and run them through your hair.
It’ll keep flyaways at bay, and you won’t get that shellacked, stiff effect from using too much hairspray.
21. For shorter hair, twist the lock of hair up and heat the rolled hair with a flat iron.
22. For curly/natural hair, group your hair into “pineapples” to keep your curls neat and intact while you sleep.
Throw on a sleeping cap and when you wake up, your curls will be elongated and preserved.
23. Tame flyaway hair strands by spraying a toothbrush with hairspray and combing them down.
The denseness of the bristles will ensure that each wispy hair is coated and tamed by the hairspray.
24. You don’t have to wash your hair every day — just wash your bangs.
If you have especially long hair that is a pain to wash, but your bangs just don’t lie down right when your hair is greasy, try pulling your hair back and just washing your bangs in the sink. You’ll spend less time washing and drying your hair.

25. If all you need is a little bit of extra body, scrunch your hair with beach spray or gel and use a diffuser.
It’s a super-easy and fast method to get simple waves with no flat iron or rollers.
26. For an easy way to create victory rolls and vintage pinup hairdos, you NEED this $5 curling brush contraption.
It’s called the Curl Easy Pro brush and you can get it here or at any Sally’s Beauty Supply.
28. Another way to fight frizz: Sleep with a beanie on while your hair is wet.
29. For the easiest, most secure buns ever, use spin pins instead of bobby pins.
They’re especially helpful if you have the kind of straight, slippery hair that requires dozens of bobby pins to secure. Check out a really super-simple tutorial here.
