Nervous about getting vaccinated/going out? We get it. If it helps, for us, there is nothing better than a good head of hair to get us in the mood to face anything. Inspired by some of our favorite celebrities and influencers, we thought to share with you some easy two-step looks you can do before you snap on your mask.
Want a great look that quite literally washes and wear? Take inspiration from Jennifer Aniston, who’s donning the deep blonde hair in her post supporting #WearADamnMask. Her pandemic roots may be peeking, but her locks keep that golden luster. If you’re blonde, and looking to refresh your locks (that lose color over time), then wash your hair with Davines Alchemic Golden Shampoo and Conditioner, P2,900. A pigmented hair care duo, these two will help revive hair color between salon visits. Just wash, wait and wear in any style you prefer.
Laid Back Waves
For definition and smoothness without sacrificing volume, try these laid-back waves. In this video posted over a year ago, we see Kate Hudson creating a homemade face mask to encourage more people to be proactive about their masking. Here we also see her long mermaid locks with flawless definition, shine, and smoothness. To get this look, you can apply a hair oil like Davines Oi Oil, ₱1,195, to your towel-dried lengths and ends to give your hair a moisture boost. Made with roucou oil, it will give your hair loads of shine. You can then twist it in a bun or braid it and leave it overnight to create those delicious effortless creases.
Side Swept Lob
You may not plan to don a red carpet gown while getting vaccinated, but that doesn't mean you're not allowed to get a red carpet-worthy hairstyle. If you’re not sure what to do with your bob, try this easy style from Arizona Muse, an Aveda Global Ambassador, for an effortlessly breezy look. To get this style, you’ll need a texturizer like Aveda Texture Tonic, P600. Made with pullulan, a naturally derived styling polymer and sugar cane, it helps create texture and flexible hold for all hair types. Give it an extreme side part to add more volume to your hair to help contrast your face mask.
Airy Dried Locks
Grown-out roots come in and out of style but damaged hair is always out. Nothing feels worse than barely standing in a line and your hair already looks like it’s been there for hours. But with a good primer, your hair can feel as soft and supple as Emily Ratajkowski’s. To get the look, first grab your favorite 24-hour hair primer like Kerastase Genesis Anti Hair-Fall Fortifying Blow-dry Fluid, ₱ 1,900. It keeps hair looking healthy while protecting it from heat and breakage caused by styling too. For a more natural look blow dry only part of the way and let hair air dry. Easy right?
Remember, what’s most important when going out or getting vaccinated is to stay safe, protected, and comfortable. But if these styles give you some confidence and self-assuredness too, then it certainly can be a worthy addition to your protocols. Who knows, maybe someone might even mistake you for one of the celebrities on the list. ;)
