SoZo HAIR Salon Tips

Headbands are more than just hair accessories,  they can be lifesavers!  They keep our hair back off our faces,  and generally make us look and feel prettier than we would otherwise.  To help boost your hairstyle options, here are 5 easy ways to wear headbands.

Braids offer plenty of control in warm weather, and with a low side placement, they leave plenty of room for a headband! You can opt for something simple or add detail with a floral or jeweled headband instead.


Styling tip

Keep frizz away by misting your completed hairstyle with SoZo Perfection Spritz.

2. Messy updoheadband

If you just don’t have the time (or energy) for a polished hairstyle, try pairing your favorite headband with a messy updo. The sheer fact you bothered to accessorize your hair will make it look “done”, and you can absolutely get away with a messy texture because tousled waves are “the thing!”


Styling tip

If you’re between washes, refresh your roots with dry shampoo. Apply SoZo Hair Freshener to absorb any excess oil and add lift before styling.

Whether you’re headed to the gym, or you just want to keep everything back off your face, an easy ponytail hairstyle with a stretchy headband is just what you need. This kind of hairstyle not only looks effortlessly cool, it’ll also help to protect your hair from perspiration, so you can go a bit longer between washes!

Styling tip

After applying hairspray, tack down any persistent flyaways by misting your hands with a small amount of water, then smoothing them over your head.

4. Blowout

There are days when you just don’t want to hide the fantastic movement through the lengths of your hair in an updo, but you’d like to accessorize. On those days, keeping your hair back with a chic headband is the perfect compromise, especially if you have a great blowout to show off!

Styling tip

Create a smooth, flyaway-free blowout by applying SoZo Zero Frizz to your hair before drying.



5. Messy waves


Boho waves always look gorgeous with a headband, and they create a really pretty, carefree look. This kind of hairstyle is also a great way to dress bed head hair for the outside world when you don’t have a lot of time to style your hair.

Styling tip

To perfect the hair you woke up with, spritz it with SoZo MIRACLE Leave In Treatment and touch up with a large curling iron to add movement throughout.
