Everyone has them: hair days from hell. No matter what you do, it's frizzy, limp, lifeless, boring, and just will not stay in place. Well those days are numbered because the only thing keeping you from amazing, glamorous hair are a few hair hacks like the ones on this list.
Unfortunately we don't live in a world where we can all have professional live-in hairstylists to ease each and every hair woe. Instead, we need to rely on ourselves to get us out of the tangle. And luckily we have the Internet, which is filled with tons of tutorials and tips on how to tame even the frizziest of frizzes. And even luckier for you, you have us to compile all those hair tips from the interwebs into one awesome resource for hair tricks.
Our list covers how to get bangs without cutting them, how to get volume when none exists, and how to use a toothbrush in ways you never would have thought. We'll go over why our blow dryers have a "cool" button (hint: it's not just to cool you down during a hot blow-drying session), how to hide your roots, and how to use a bobby pin the right way. Chances are you're doing it wrong, but no worries, we were too!So put down the curling iron and brush (just for a second) and vote up the hairstyling tips that will help you transform you from "hack" to "pro" when it comes to your hair.
