Get Stuff We Love
After spending a lot of time perfecting our hair, we want that style to last as long as possible. But with unexpected weather, sleeping on it and a variety of other influences, that look can fall flat fast.
That's why TODAY Style asked celebrity hairstylists to share their favorite products to prolong our blowouts this fall. The best part? Everything can be found in the beauty aisle at your local drugstore!
TODAY editors, writers and experts take care to recommend items we really like and hope you’ll enjoy! Just so you know, TODAY does have affiliate relationships. So, while every product is independently selected, if you buy something through our links, we may get a small share of the revenue.
1. Batiste Dry Shampoo Spray, $10, Amazon
“We love this because it allows their clients to (keep) their amazing blowouts, adds volume without any buildup and is a cheat to cover up grays in-between color weeks,” said Alessandro Casalino of Alma Salon Beverly Hills, whose clients include Goldie Hawn, Dennis Quaid and Jason Behr.
2. Marc Anthony True Professional Clear Dry Shampoo, $10, Amazon
“This is created with nanotechnology and the microporous mineral zeolite to absorb excess oil, remove odor, minimize static and replenish volume without the chalky residue that other dry shampoos produce,” said hairstylist Dani Faraj of Brighton Salon in Beverly Hills, who works with Bella Thorne.
3. John Frieda Luxurious Volume Root Booster, $5, Amazon
"This is a great product for blow drying fine hair and achieving a thicker texture without making it feel greasy by the end of the day. I also suggest using a thick cotton headband to put your hair in a high ponytail or topknot before bed. It won't leave a crease in the hair and adds some volume by the morning,” said Natè Bova, a stylist at Warren-Tricomi Salon whose clients include Catherine Zeta Jones, Rosario Dawson, Katharine McPhee and Katie Lee.
4. Giovanni Power-Boxed Powder Dry Shampoo, $16, Amazon
"For a more organic approach, try the Giovanni powder dry shampoo. It is made with corn starch to help absorb excess moisture and grape seed extract to energize the roots,” said Bova.
5. TRESemmé Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo, $7, Jet
“This is a great, go-to volumizing dry shampoo. It’s super affordable and doesn’t leave a white residue,” said Michelle Schwartz of B2V Salon in West Hollywood.
6. Not Your Mother’s Double Take Dry Finish Texture Spray, $14, Jet
“This is a great product to add volume and texture to help extend your blowout — without leaving any buildup,” said Schwartz, whose celebrity clients include Famke Janssen, Haley Strode, Sarah Jane Morris and Angela Relucio.
7. Johnson and Johnson Baby Powder, $5, Amazon
“This lightweight powder diffuses the natural oils that are in your hair and is gentle. Plus, it’s easy to apply: just add a small bit on your hands and rub gently until the white powder is infused in your hair. Baby powder is great because unlike most dry shampoos, the natural oils in your hair nourish your scalp rather than disrupt it," said Jamielynn De Leon, founder of Rogue House Salon in New York City.
8. L’Oreal Paris Volume Filler Densifying Gelee, $8, Jet
“I love this product because it spreads evenly throughout your hair and it has a protein mechanism that bonds your hair to accentuate fullness. A little goes a long way with this lightweight substance. The key is to not put too much when in use. It's best to add the product and then blow dry your head upside down to create even more volume. The price is on point and can last a long time,” said De Leon.
9. Alba Botanica Hawaiian Anti Frizz Serum, $6, Amazon
“One of my favorite cruelty-free products, this drugstore buy does two jobs in one. The main ingredient in the frizz serum is argan oil and keratin. It can be used before or after you blow dry your hair. It’s great for hair that is to prone to flyaways and frizz,” said De Leon.
10. L’Oreal Paris Advance Haircare Extraordinar Oil Transforming Oil-in-Cream Treatment, $6, Amazon
“Whether you use a salon-brand treatment or this effective product from L’Oreal, you will definitely extend the life of your blowout with coconut oil. The pre-wash conditioning treatment is restorative for any kind of hair and leaves it able to take on the effects of heat much better. It also smells nice so you can feel better about not washing your hair for several more days,” said TV hairstylist Rochelle Maribojoc of Spa Pechanga at Pechanga Resort & Casino.
11. Schwarzkopf Gliss Extra Volume Lift Up Spray, $18, Amazon
“I love applying this product to any of my clients before a red carpet appearance. The volumizing molecules and collagen complex help lift hair from the root and provide long-lasting, touchable staying power!” said Peter Butler, whose celebrity clients include Krysten Ritter, Claire Danes and Winona Ryder.
12. Got2b Volumaniac Root Lifting Spray, $4, Amazon
“This spray is amazing for embracing hair’s texture and natural movement,’ said Larry Sims, whose celebrity clients include Tracee Ellis Ross, Naomie Harris and Danielle Brooks.
13. Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, $43, Jet
“This spray is great to use on a daily basis to help get a textured look. Celebs love this product because it results in hair that looks sexy and effortless ... and lasts," said Michael Sparks of Cie Sparks Salon in Malibu, whose clients include Jaime Alexander, Miranda Cosgrove and Meghan Markle.
