5 Air-Dry and Low-Maintenance Hairstyles You Need to Try

We understand the hustle – your schedule is packed, time is a precious commodity, and sometimes styling your hair is the last thing you want to spend a ton of time on. What if we told you that you could achieve effortless, low-maintenance hairstyles that elevate your look and put some time back into your day? We're sharing five chic air-dry hairstyles that will save you time and have you questioning why you haven't tried them sooner.

Heatless Blowout Curls:

You may have seen influencers try heatless curls on popular Instagram reels and TikTok videos. Rumor is that “this is the perfect dupe for achieving a salon blowout.” Start by letting your hair air-dry and section it off into two sections. Grab a silk curling rod and clip it on top (positioned in the middle) of your head. With one section at a time, you’re going to wrap a piece of hair around the rod and away from your face. Continue adding more hair to the original piece you first started with. Afterward, secure with a silk scrunchie, repeat for the next section, and evenly spray a bit of UltraFlex Hairspray to lock your curls in. Let your hair sit overnight, and you’ll wake up with a voluminous blowout! 

Curl Scrunch Method:

For our curly-haired gals – The curl scrunch method is ideal for getting clearly defined and frizz-free curls. You’ll want your hair to be wet and separated into two sections. Apply a pump of WonderBalm Magic for Curls into your hand and rub both hands together to make sure it’s evenly distributed. You’re going to start scrunching the first section of your hair with your hands by gently pulsing each time. Repeat the process for the second section and continue to add more product as needed. Allow your hair to dry and BOOM you’ll have an easy hairstyle that highlights your natural curls without all the hassle. 

Overnight Braided Waves:

Ahhh… Braided waves! These are great for those who want beachy, sea salt waves, without applying heat to their hair. This simple hairstyle is such an original, and you may be familiar with it! First, allow your hair to become damp and section it off into two equal sections. Apply our TotalControl Styling Crème to create long-lasting, smooth waves. Then braid each section of hair and tie the ends with a scrunchie. Sleep with your braids overnight, and in the morning you’ll have soft, wavy hair!

Simply Smooth and Straight:

For those who already naturally have straight hair, this is a great option if you just want something a bit more on the smoother side. You can never go wrong with straight hair, and you can dress it up or down. Besides, whoever said that simple hairstyles weren’t cute and trendy?! Just allow your hair to air-dry as normal, brush it out, and apply our SuperFinish Polishing Balm for an irresistibly soft and sleek look. Our favorite part about straight hair is that you can use it to get a lustrous, reflective glass-like shine. 

Loose Twist-Clip Waves:

This easy hairstyle is a must-try and feels soooo effortless for the look that it achieves. After your shower, let your hair air-dry until it becomes damp. A good leave-in conditioner and hair oil are key to making sure your hair is moisturized before you start twisting it. Section it off into 4 sections, twist each section, and secure it with a clip. Let your hair finish drying then you’ll have the perfect loose waves!
