Travel Time: Hair Saving Ideas

hair travel tips,beauty travel tipsI’m writing this post while on a flight to Zurich.

I’m going for work – mostly! – but it’s the season of summer travel. And plans for warm weather travel mean adjusting the beauty routine. Vim and Vigor and Tan Bella in San Francisco shared some fabulous tips for getting ready:

Beat the frizz:
Invest in a great cut and color before departing for summer travel – your hair will be healthier and easier to manage from the beach back to the boardroom. Garret and Beverly can provide styling tips, cuts for the season, color ideas and unique products.

Brighten up:
Add some highlights around your face – it will make you look refreshed and brighter for summertime photos.

Cover up:
Protect your hair before going into the sun, chlorine or salt water with shampoos and conditioners that block UV rays, or bring a hat or scarf to cover your head when the sun is at its strongest. Some great products to protect your strands include:

Kerastase’s Soleil line, which offers SPF within its shampoo and conditioner for sun exposed hair.

Goldwell’s “colorglow” line of shampoos, conditioners, hair masque and leave-in treatment provides colored hair with added protection.

Pack “light”:
Use lightweight leave-in lotions or shine sprays as alternatives to mousses or gels – they provide bounce while leaving hair weightless, especially in warmer months

Get on base:
The ever-essential base tan is a must for travel to sunnier destinations.

Have a great week! I’ll bring you back some Swiss chocolate…

    Wow, these are some great tips! I travel a lot (in one week, I was on 14 different planes!), and hate how I come off each plane looking like I just woke up. I can’t seem to keep my hair/makeup looking fresh after a flight. I’ll give some of your summer tips a try. :)
