Tired Winter Hair Problems: Solved.

Between the heat inside, the weather outside, static, dryness and good old-fashioned laziness, winter tresses can get totally stressed out. If you’re in a weather-induced hair rut, read on for some ideas on how to get a shinier, prettier, freshly-updated coif. There’s no mood elevator like a great hairstyle, don’t you think?

Hansen Liu, a stylist at Sally Hershberger Downtown in New York City, weighs in on some common questions:


Shine on!

I have flat, dull hair, especially this time of year. Without living and dying by my flat iron, how can I make it look shinier?
I would blow dry the hair using a round brush and work in a lightweight mousse to polish and add some nice texture to the hair. Then, finish with a little bit of lightweight shine spray to tame frizz and add a nice gloss, such as Sally Hershberger’s Super Keratin Spray. Purchase 042709_paltrow_300x400

What’s an easy cut I can ask for at my local salon to mix things up for spring without going too far?
I always like the idea of taking the length up a little bit to freshen up the look for the spring.  I am kind of obsessed with the “longer bob” meaning taking the length to the collarbones to go with some soft framing and long layers. This cut would allow you to wear your hair many different ways!

Using a 1″ curling iron with or without the barrel, take a section of your hair wrap it around twice from the top down and leave the ends out. Finish with light, volumizing hair spray such as Sally Hershberger’s Major Body. This will give you that sexy, effortless wave! Purchase here.
