If you cut your hair shorter than you like, when it gets to that sweet spot that you simply love, take a photo with your cell phone. When you go back to your stylist, you have the exact look you want with your face, not a celebrity or hair style magazine photo. I've shared this idea with alot of friends and they loved it.
When you wash your hair and towel dry, just blot your hair, never fluff it with the towel. Pets love to be fluffed after a bath, our hair, not so much. It can break your hair and cause frizz. It takes longer to blot but it's worth it to keep breakage and frizzy hair in check.
Got the static in your hair? After putting lotion on your hands, run them over your hair and it will prevent your hair from being out of control.
This is my favorite tip. If you have limp hair that is hard to style (like me), flip your hair upside down to blow dry. When dry, tease the roots gently with a fine tooth comb and use your fingers to style your hair. This keeps you from combing or brushing out all of the volume.
I tease and spray with hair spray and let it completely dry. My hair looks like an explosion took place but when you get it tamed, it looks awesome. When my kids were young, one morning I almost walked out with my teased hair. My son said mom, look at your hair. We had the biggest laugh about my big hair.
