Read our Q&A below as Jenny shares her favorite 'do's to compliment your fall wardrobe. Try these great tips out on your own and let us know what you think with a note below!
So Jenny, what's an easy, yet super chic hairstyle we can all try?
Tuck your hair into the collar of your coat or scarf for that nonchalant, "I-didn't-even-try-to-look-chic-but-I-do" look.
Love that! What about braids? How can we easily nail this trend?
Try a loose side braid to wear with hats and caps, leaving some soft pieces popping out of either side, framing your face. This look is cool-literally.
Fab! Any super-simple-to-use products that can make us turn even more heads?
Give your hair some extra oomph by lightly dusting Redken Powder Grip 03 ($20) onto the roots, then sweep hair into a twisted, disheveled up-do, and let those flyaway strands fly!
Any advice on haircare for this Fall?
Leaves are changing colors, the air is getting cooler, and your hair is not cooperating. How can you beat unruly hair during the wintry months? Make sure to always use conditioner to help with frizzy, static hair. If your hair is thicker, use conditioner all over to nourish deep down to the roots.
How do we avoid lifeless tresses that have lost their radiance?
Dull hair? No problem: A gloss spray like Redken Shine Flash 02 ($20) amps up dry, lifeless locks in an instant. Hair is limp after wearing a hat on a blistering day, so carry a travel size dry shampoo to boost roots midday or before a night out. Throw your hair upside down and mist the dry shampoo at the roots, shake, and there you have it-instant, all over lift!
