The Best Emergency Hair Accessories to Stash in your Purse

PicMonkey CollageWe’ve all been there. On a date, or out for the day, and your hair just turns into a mess.

Whether it’s humidity, a rain storm, or static electricity, there are times that we just need to “start over” with our hair–and that can be difficult when you are out for the day!

If you stash some of these emergency hair accessories on your bag, I’m sure you’ll be able to recover even the worst hair day. I always carry hairspray, clear elastics and bobby pins. And if I’m going somewhere and I may want to do something a little prettier, a twistband or delicate headband are sure to do the trick.

The key to recovering wilted or even wet hair is to not overdo it. Keep it simple. And try not to mess with it too much or add too much extra product. A simple sleek ponytail with a twistband or clear elastic will do the trick.
