Summer’s humidity, sweaty workouts and windy beach days can all wreck a hot-hair day and give your style the dreaded F-word: FRIZZ. Here are some of the best tips and strategies that top stylists have given me to prevent pouf and foil frizzies.
“To keep flyaways from forming around your hairline, start blow-drying your roots and around your crown first. Because these areas are most prone to frizz, it’s best to eliminate any humidity as soon as possible.” –Noemie, Hairstylist at Prive Salon in New York City
“Spritz a bronzer brush with a shine spray and smooth it over flyaways. Because the bristles are lightweight, they won’t pancake your strands, the way your hairbrush would.” –David Evangelista, a celebrity stylist in New York City
“Before you work out, spray your hair from roots to ends with a dry shampoo to absorb water. Next, brush strands flat around your head, then cover them with a silk scarf before you sweat. Afterward, blast roots for a few minutes with a blow-dryer on cool.” –Jet Rhys, owner of the two eponymous salons in San Diego
