Travel Hairstyle Tips and Tricks

We’ve all had those moments on long travel days when you want nothing more than a toothbrush and a long, hot shower. But there are ways you can keep that hair both looking and feeling fresh, even on long flights or road trips!

It’s all about how you prep your hair, what products and accessories you pack, and thinking ahead on what hairstyles will work for your travels.

Now that things are reopening and we’re all planning those long-awaited vacations, you’re going to need some cute and comfortable hairstyles to rock on those flights or road trips! From helping that blowout last through long travel days to heatless hairstyles made for packing light, we’ve got you covered with these tips and tricks for travel hair:

Opt for Heatless Hairstyles to Pack Lighter

Travel usually means limited packing. You can’t bring that whole cabinet of hair products, curlers, and flat irons with you - but you don’t need to anyway! From beachy waves to ponytails to ballerina buns, we’ve got a whole list of heatless hair tutorials HERE to help you plan your looks for each day of your trip - all without hair dryers, curling irons, or straighteners!

Protecting Your Blowout Hairstyle While Traveling

The best thing you can do to prep your hair for travel is cleansing and styling it the day before your flight or road trip. If ever there was a time for a professional blowout, this is it! Getting it professionally done will ensure a thorough and blowout-friendly washing and conditioning, plus the perfect blowout that you just can’t achieve at home.

Pack a travel-sized dry shampoo in your carry-on bag for extra long flights if your hair tends to get greasy quickly. If your hair feels oily or flat partway through your travels, just add a few spritzes of your favorite dry shampoo to freshen it up!

The Perfect Cute and Comfortable Hairstyles

Once you’ve got your perfect blowout ready to go, put it up in a top knot or high ponytail for the duration of your flight or drive to avoid frizzing and creasing. This will keep your hair up and off the back of your seat, then once you reach your destination you can let it down and have a perfectly intact blowout fresh off the plane!

Of course, don’t use those damaging elastic hair ties, or else all that hard work will be for nothing. You need a hair accessory that will maintain your blowout and protect your hair so it looks just as good when you take it down as it did when you put it up. Might we suggest a PONY-O?

PONY-O is the Ultimate Travel Accessory!

PONY-O is perfect for travel because it simplifies packing by replacing all the other hair products you might normally bring and provides a secure hold that doesn’t even need hairspray or bobby pins to last all day.

When you’re ready to let that hair down at the end of a long day of travel, you’ll be so glad you put it up with a PONY-O when your hair is free of damage, breakage, and creasing. You won’t even be able to tell you put it up in the first place!
