How-To: Love Second-Day Hair

You washed. You styled. You may have even braided, teased, flat-ironed or piled. But after a night out and the hard-won sleep that followed, that foxy ‘do is sporting a serious hair hangover.

Instead of washing and styling anew, we asked hair experts Ashley Smith and Margaret Lippert of Oxenrose Salon for a quick and easy second-day hair solution to get our slept-on locks back in business in no time. 

Their advice: work hair into a soft, messy bun. All you need is your hands and five large bobby pins.

A Shu In

Shu Uemura, in my mind, equates with my simply-can’t-live-without 18K gold lash curler and my wanna-be Madonna faux mink false lashes— so I was a little skeptical when I heard the hubbub about the Japanese cosmetics brand venturing into hair care. I definitely have my preferences when it comes to hair products (whatever I try, I end up going back to Paul Mitchell’s lightweight Super Strong Daily Shampoo and Conditioner, and Bumble and Bumble’s styling lotion for a smooth and shiny finish). Still, as a beauty editor, I’m probably more adventurous then the average person when it comes to using myself as a product-testing guinea pig.
