Tips For Air-Drying Your Hair

Two Easy Ways to Air-Dry Your Hair With Style

Are you a fan of air-drying your hair? Allure has two simple tricks to making the results look even better. Plus, they're super quick, so you can get back to more important things like sleep.

I'm a big fan of air-drying my hair. I've even been known to let my hair air-dry in February. (OK, if you must know, I did it this morning.) So I've made a study of ways to make hair look better when it's air-dried. If you also air-dry in the winter, then I bet you could use these two tips.

If you wash your hair in the morning: Use a texturizing spray, like Wella Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray ($16), to make it look like you styled your hair at least a little. Then, blow-dry just the roots to give them a little volume (it just takes a few minutes!). If you're still at home when your hair is dry (because I know you'd never leave the house with wet hair . . . ), flatiron just the ends to make the style look more purposeful and polished.

If you wash your hair before bed: Sleep with it in a loose, low braid that starts at the nape of your neck. "Pull the braid apart with your fingers to make it wider and mess it up," says hairstylist Kristin Ess. After you take it out in the morning, shake your hair out with your fingers. "You'll get a loose, natural wave, which is really pretty." Oh, and braid your hair over one shoulder if that makes it easier to sleep on.
