The Cannes Film Festival started yesterday, which got us thinking. What would a glamorous jet set beautiful person do to fight frizz? Of course, the answer to that is call their stylist and hope/pay for the best, then pin everything up if it all goes awry...
But, there are other ways to deal with humidity and its devious tricks. All you need are the right products and a little styling know-how. Before long, you'll be rocking hot weather hair as well as Blake Lively!
If you don't want to look like a ball of cotton candy, the first thing you need to do is make sure you're using products that help to combat frizz, promoting a sleek, smooth finish.
Straightening - Whether you prefer to flat iron or blow-dry your hair straight, a spray or a cream is essential to getting the look you want. Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray helps to create a straight, silky finish, and Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream smooths the cuticle and helps to tame flyaways as the hair dries. The result is smooth and touchable.
Curls – To help maintain definition with curly hair in hot and/or humid conditions, mousse can be indispensable. Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse gives the hair plenty of bounce with long-lasting hold and a glossy finish, even when humidity levels are on the rise.
Hold – If you've heat-styled some curls, treated yourself to a DIY blowout or sculpted a pretty updo, you probably won't want any frizzy, fuzzy, oversized interjections. The best way to protect your style is with a generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray. This humidity-resistant spray will lock in your style, and lock out the weather!
Finally, it's worth mentioning that a hydrating mask can really help tackle frizz. Applied once a week or so, it will help to rehydrate the hair and replenish lost nutrients. In turn, this will make the hair stronger and more pliable when styling.
