If You Haven’t Washed Your Hair, Use Dry Shampoo

If you haven’t washed your hair in a few days (we won’t tell!), apply dry shampoo to quickly absorb oil from your roots and give your hair a boost of volume. Dry shampoo is an easy way to give your hair a polished look without having to wash it.
 

 
If You Wear Headphones, Try a High Bun or Pony

Over the ear headphones are great on function, but can limit how you style your hair. For elevated style when wearing headphones, put your hair into a high bun or high pony and prevent flyaways with hairspray.

 
Fight Frizz and Flyaways with Hair Serum

Frizzy hair can sometimes look worse on video, so use hair serum for a sleek on-camera look. For a one-step style, apply hair serum to soaking wet hair and then let your hair air dry or use a diffuser to dry your hair without causing frizz.
 

 
Embrace Your Natural Curls with a Curl Defining Mousse

Hair mousse helps define your curls and waves. When styling your hair, apply mousse to wet hair before air-drying your hair or using a diffuser. As your hair is drying, you can gently scrunch your hair to enhance your curls. 

 
Quickly Touch Up Hair with a Smoothing Cream

Ideal for flyaways, static frizz, and split ends, smoothing cream helps instantly fight frizz. If you notice your hair getting frizzy during the day, you can use styling cream on dry hair to quickly touch up your style before a video call. Use our frizzy hair solutions for even more easy frizz-fighting tips.
 

 
Try a New Look for Virtual Happy Hour

If you’re catching up with friends over a virtual happy hour, let your hair down and try a fun new look! When styling your hair, use a flat iron spray to protect your hair before heat styling. To lighten your hair when styling, use a lightening spray to help add blonde, radiant tones to your hair.

 
Add Lightweight Volume to Hair with Thickening Spray

If you have fine or thin hair, use a thickening spray to add volume to your hair. Thickening spray helps add lightweight volume to your hair by boosting volume at your roots and making your strands feel thicker for voluminous style.

If you have more time in your styling routine, you can also add a volume-boosting hair mask. After shampooing, apply the mask to wet hair and leave on for about five minutes before rinsing. Then, after towel drying your hair, apply thickening spray for even more volume.
 

 
For Virtual Dates, Create Romantic Waves with Styling Foam

If you’re brave enough to have a first date over video, use a styling foam to create touchably soft waves. Styling foam helps define your natural curl pattern and control frizz so you can skip hot tools like curling irons or straighteners to style your hair.

 
Prevent Brassy Hair with a Purple Shampoo

If you don’t have access to a salon, combat brassiness at home with purple shampoo. Purple shampoo is an essential step for blonde hair care at home because it helps your salon-fresh blonde last longer between trips to the salon. You can use purple shampoo as a daily treatment to give blonde locks a cooler, more neutral tone.
 

 
Cover Up Grown-Out Roots at Home

If you look in the mirror and roots are growing in, instantly conceal them with a root cover-up. Similar to makeup, root concealers help color in grown-out roots to match your existing hair color. If you don’t have access to your favorite hair salon, try dyeing your hair at home to cover up greys or find your next new color.
