Hair care and hair styling are things that take place at home or in a salon. Or in a kitchen. Different strokes for different folks. Either way, it isn’t something we think of as mobile. Maybe we should.
We’ve seen tutorials on makeup looks that take us from day to night. Or clothes and styling choices in magazine articles that boast about their versatility and ability to make us feel appropriately dressed everywhere from the office to happy hour to a dinner date. But what about our hair?
Does your hair need to work for different events throughout the day? Well, maybe. You probably don’t need to do a full on hairstyle redo, but you may want to freshen up your style. You could also take your daytime hairstyle up a notch or two if you needed to for an evening out.
Whatever the occasion, there are valid reasons for you to learn about a few hair essentials you can pack and take with you on the go. It never hurts to be prepared for whatever life might throw at you.
When would I ever need hair items on the go?
Yes, you would. Having the wind blowing through your hair always sounds so sexy in songs. It even looks glamorous when you see it in movies and music videos. Behind the scenes of photo shoots can also add to this fantasy. And let’s not mention how Beyonce has single handily made us all feel like we need to carry around artificial wind with us wherever we go.
In the real world, however, the wind can do quite a number on your hairstyles. Short, long, relaxed or natural, any kind of hair can be ruined by the wind. If you find yourself in an unexpected gust, you will feel much better knowing that you can fix the damage that has been done by simply digging in your purse and pulling out a small brush, comb or bobby pin.
The rain is another enemy of a bomb hairdo. Getting caught is a rain shower doesn’t have to mean the death of your hairstyle. You can fix most catastrophes if you have access to a mirror and the right stuff in your stash.
The elements aren’t the only culprits. Ever had a day where you just really felt like your hair was just ‘good enough’? Then, during the course of your day, you get that call. The call that requires you to be somewhere around people where you actually have to look better than ‘good enough’. Portable hair stash to the rescue!
