There is nothing like getting a fresh trim and style from your hairstylist. But recreating that fabulous do at home can take time, effort, and a lot of styling tools.

Opting for a fresh and fashionable wash and go haircut that doesn’t need blow drying is the perfect way to create a salon-worthy look and keep your hair healthy. So, put down your hairdryer and step away from your curling irons. The next time you need a trim, try one of these low-maintenance looks for every hair type and texture.

The Right Way to Air Dry Hair

One of the main benefits of wash and wear haircuts is letting hair air dry naturally. Still, if you want to maintain a frizz-free finish, then you still need to put in a little effort. Here are some easy tips to follow to get the best from your no blow-dry hairstyle:

  1. Moisturize. Fast hair drying starts in a shower. To make your hair soak less water and be silkier and less frizzy, seal in the moisture with a good conditioner or hair mask.
  2. Use cold water. Cold water seals cuticles. Washing your conditioner out with cold water can make all the difference to the finished look of your hair. A useful hack is to comb through your hair while it is under cold water.
  3. Set it. When opting for air drying, it is important to set hair the way you want it to dry. Ensure your part is in the right place, and your hair is falling how you want it. You can also twist it into a loose braid or bun to add soft waves.
  4. Style. Try using Don’t Blow It from Bumble and Bumble to have more control over your wash and go hairstyle and tame the frizz. If you want to air dry hair straight, comb it all the way through until it gets dry. Once your hair is dry, spray some hairspray onto a brush and gently comb the hair down to get rid of any fry-aways.

Let’s be honest. If we could all get away without having to spend ages blow drying and styling our hair, then we would.
