I have been a very busy bee as of late (as of late being the last couple years LOL), and my hair has had to be camera ready in a lot of different environments. Even though your schedule maybe all over the place, there is no excuse for your fabulous to suffer. Here are a few tips to make sure every Hairnista’s look is in tip-top shape while she jet-sets.
1. Satin is Your Savior
Cotton pillowcases are the devil! They rob your hair of precious moisture. Pack a satin bonnet, pillowcase, or scarf in your carry-on bag to wear at night and you are guaranteed to preserve your style throughout your trip. My go-to bonnet is by Silky Wraps.
2. Downsize Your Goodies
Please don’t rely on hotel shampoos and conditioners…unless you’re staying at the Four Seasons or The Ritz 🙂 If this is a budget or business trip you don’t want to use chain hotel products and expect your usual results. If you can’t find travel size bottles of your regular products, make your own. In the beauty section of every major drugstore there are great empty containers that you can use for all your special treats your hair loves. Checkout a quick video of how I make my own travel minis here.
3. Always Have a Back-up
A true Hairnista is never caught unprepared. A great half-wig, ponytail, or clip-ins are a necessity when traveling. If you need to look refreshed near the end of a long trip, any of these items will give you a quick fix and have you out of your hotel room in a breeze.
4. Wrap It Up!
There is nothing like a turban or wrap to keep you looking chic while on the go. Whether it’s a red-eye flight or a quick change after lounging at the beach, you can look pulled together in less than 5 minutes. Need a tutorial? I’ve got you covered here.
You guys know that I am ALL about great hair, but it shouldn’t rule your life. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, the last thing anyone wants to be worried about is their hair. Hopefully these quick and easy tips will make your next trip a good one.
Happy travels Hairnistas!
