The hot weather brings out the worst in everyone’s hair
no matter how hard you actually try.
Fine strands frizz up, curls shrink up with the humidity,
and long locks transform into a sweaty mess.
This season, Chrissy Teigen’s mane man and T3
stylist David Lopez gives us his on-set hair hacks.
If these tricks can hold up at swimsuit shoots on the
beach, then they’ll do the job for you, too!
You’ll also be amazed at the time you’ll save on styling
with the two-minute updo and five-minute blowout
secrets David shares.
Read on for these life hacks.
1. You could pull out your curling wand and take 30
minutes creating that undone, air-dryed, woke-up-like-
this beach-hair look or not.
David recommends using a texturizing product on damp
hair. Split hair in half, and roll each section away from
the face. Blast the twist with the blow dryer.
The finished effect is perfectly undone waves with just
enough volume. This technique also creates volume in
limp, straight hair. You can also use this method to
smooth unruly natural waves.
2. For static and unruly strands that won’t calm down,
a kabuki brush does the trick. Spritz a makeup brush,
one that you won’t be using on your face again, with
hair spray. Then, use the densely packed hairs to
smooth away flyaway hairs.
You’ll get a sleek and smooth finish without that shiny,
lacquered look.
3. Sometimes you want to put your hair up for a quick
moment to keep hair out of your face or off your neck.
But a hair elastic can leave that awkward bend in your
blowout. Avoid that crease altogether by using your
own strands as a hair tie.
Gather two small sections of hair right behind the ears
and knot around your pony. Stick in one bobby pin at
the base to keep the style from unraveling. Then when
you’re ready to rock your waves again, you can easily
loosen the knot.
4. Sideswept bangs have the tendency to fall in your
eyes and in the way. David’s secret to keeping bangs
over to the side requires just a little teasing at the
roots. Use a rattail comb to backcomb the roots of the
bangs in the direction you want them to fall. Then,
smooth over any flyaways on top.
In addition to keeping your bangs in place, this teasing
technique also helps create volume, so your bangs look
full, not piecey.
5. Updos don’t have to be complicated! David showed
us a two-step hairstyle you can literally pull off in two
minutes. Start by splitting your hair into two equal
sections, and then wind your strands into a thick twist.
Roll up the twist to form a doughnut shape at the nape
of your neck. Pin up the twist with bobby pins at the
top, at the bottom, and on both sides. Carefully pull
style to thicken the bun.
This glamorous chignon is perfect for gym-to-work or
work-to-drinks. No one will know this style only took
you two minutes and a few bobby pins.
