1. THE LOW BUN

Tease a few pieces from the top of your hair with a little brush or comb (like this one) for some extra volume, style into a low bun for an effortless look. You can make as messy or as polished as you'd like: I tend to the messier side (so I'll use a texturizing spray) but this looks great with ballerina buns too. This wrap up makes ballerina buns super easy to achieve on the fly. 

2. BEACHY WAVES 

Spray your hair liberally with sea salt spray (this one is perfect because it's super moisturizing - a must when you're on a dry plane) as soon as you take off. Depending on how long and thick your hair is, wrap into a few tight buns (I like these non-damaging elastics) and watch the in-flight movie. Right before you land, gently take out the buns, run your fingers through your hair and voila! you have beach waves. Apply a little bronzer across your cheekbones and temples and everyone will be asking how your tropical vacation was. 

3. NO-SHOW ELASTIC PONY TAIL 

Prep damp hair with a blowout cream. Once hair is dry, smooth flyaways with a light serum, tie your hair into a ponytail, grab a section from the pony and wrap it around the base. Secure with a bobby pin

4. LOW & LOOSE SIDE BRAID

Spray from Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle.  Blowdry just the front part so you have those pieces looks sleek and polished then flip the top over and spray some  Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray to give from texture and then you can air dry the rest but put in some detangle spray if you are going to let it out after you land. Just pull your hair to one side of your neck and do a loose braid. Even if your hair creases a bit from the braid, the top will remain smooth and the bottom will have a nice beach-y wave effect once you land. You can always touch up with a wand upon arrival.
