When it comes to creating flawless hairstyles, second day hair is key. “Dirty” hair gives your hair just the right amount of natural oils for a light sheen and it’s much easier to style, whether you curl it, braid it, or create a stylish updo. Second day hair is also perfect for headband hairstyles! Headbands can mask any grease or unflattering hair build up you don’t want to show off to the world. Especially when you’re in a rush, but want a ‘do that looks effortlessly chic, throw your hair up in a headband to elevate any look!
