Sometimes the only thing standing between a good hair day and a great hair day is the right technique. Here are some hints to fine-tune your daily styling routine.

  • Tip01
    Blow dry the hair in the direction you want your up-do. For instance, if pulling hair into a pony, direct the air flow towards the back of the head. The hair will lay flatter, leaving a smooth finish. You can also prep hair with TRESemmé Weightless Volumising Mousse to give hair a little hold.
  • Tip02
    To control flyaways with TRESemmé Non-aerosol Hairspray down on to the flyaways and immediately brush the flyaways down.
  • Tip03
    If you want to recreate that perfect salon blowout, but don’t have the time, fake it with Velcro rollers. Set dry hair on large Velcro rollers and spritz with TRESemmé Ultimate Hold Leave them in for 20 minutes, then take them out. You’ll get the perfect amount of volume at the roots and bend at the ends.
  • Tip04
    Don't rip at tangles in your hair with a brush. Use a wide-tooth comb to detangle hair when wet, and a vent brush to remove any snags on dry hair.
  • Tip05
    Pull your hair straight back into a low ponytail and secure with an elastic at the nape of your neck. Dress it up by wrapping a one-inch piece of the tail around the elastic and securing with pins underneath. Spray hair with TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray to keep it in place.
  • Tip06
    Make sure to use the right styling product for your new cut. Ask your stylist which type of styling product they recommend for your particular style. For volume, you probably need a lightweight mousse like TRESemmé Thermal Creations Volume Boosting Mousse, and for sleek looks, a styling serum like TRESemmé Salon Smooth Serum.
  • Tip07
    For the longest lasting style, build your up-do from a ponytail and manipulate the pony into a bun or a looped style. A ponytail is a strong base for any up-do because elastics will hold longer than any amount of clips and pins.
  • Tip08
    If you’re creating a twist, use extra long bobby pins to anchor the style from the beginning and then smaller bobby pins to tuck in the little pieces. The long bobby pins hold larger sections securely to keep hair from falling.
  • Tip09
    Finish any up-do with a light misting of Superior Hold to keep the flyaways under control. Layer on the hair spray to create extra hold.
  • Tip10
    Always towel dry your hair well to remove excess water and cut down on your styling time.
  • Tip11
    Use a vent brush to distribute product throughout your hair when damp. You want the most even application possible - styling products are only effective where they are applied!
  • Tip12
    When blow-drying, dry your hair 90% with a vent brush or a paddle brush to speed up drying time, and then finish with a round brush to smooth your hair.
  • Tip13
    Don't use the same towel that you used on your body to dry your hair. Start with a fresh, dry towel or invest in a super-absorbent towel for faster drying.
  • Tip14
    If you're going to blow-dry your hair, don't wait more than 20 minutes after you get out of the shower to start. Begin blow-drying before your hair is more than 30% dry to get maximum volume and prevent stubborn cowlicks.
  • Tip15
    Always use TRESemmé Heat Defence Styling Spray when styling with heat – you can even spray it right on your roots to protect your scalp from heat and dryness.
  • Tip16
    If your scalp is dry and sensitive turn your dryer on the medium heat setting when blow drying your roots.
  • Tip17
    Don’t be afraid to try any style you can dream up with the right tools and products to protect your hair from damage!
  • Tip18
    Give your hair a break from heat styling at least once a week — blow-drying every day can deplete your hair's natural moisture.
  • Tip19
    Don't over-dry your hair — the last few minutes of blow-drying is when your hair is most vulnerable to damage. When your hair is almost dry, switch the dryer to the cool setting. This will expose any damp areas and finish the job without damaging your hair.
  • Tip20
    It’s essential to add a little texture into hair before creating an up-do, as this will help give the style more hold. Spray TRESemmé Non-aerosol Hairspray on almost dry hair, and comb through using fingers. Pull up into a pony.
  • Tip21
    Don’t ruin perfect waves with a half-done style. To create a sophisticated half-up look, the trick is to pull hair from the sides into a small pony at the base of the crown. Pin random sections from the crown to the base of the pony, for a natural half-up style. Finish with a few sprays of TRESemmé Non-aerosol Hairspray for a soft hold.
  • Tip22
    The perfect finish to any up-do is a light misting of shine spray to create beautiful light reflective hair.
