Sometimes bad hair days come out of nowhere. You leave the house looking great, but between the cold weather, the hat you wore on your morning commute, and the nervous twirling you did during your morning meeting, by lunch things have gone down hill. Your hair looks limp, lifeless and lackluster. Enter the side-flip, the ingenious trick will add instant volume and movement, refreshing your style in 3 minutes or less. Click the notes to learn how. –– Laura Martin 

Step: Begin with second-day hair. Spray roots liberally with refinish, parting every 1/2” with fingers for even distribution.

Step: Flip head over and brush through hair with a detangling brush to distribute product and refine texture. As you lift your head, flip hair to the opposite side as your usual parting.

Step: Use fingers to refine and arrange shape, pushing strands away from the face. Finish with a light mist of holding spray.
