Next-day hair is our go-to look when it comes to seasonal transitions, and here's why...
The biggest advantage of next-day hair? The practical side of course! Before it became a hairstyle trend, unwashed hair was hidden away - tucked back into ponytails and buns or even under hats. Now, next-day hair is proudly rocking runways such as Alexander Wang at the Spring/Summer 2017 catwalk show in New York, and Julien Macdonald in London.
Clean hair can also be next-day hair
If the idea of leaving your hair unwashed isn't your cup of tea, there is still a way to get the voluminous and tousled next-day look using L'Oréal Professionnel's Next Day Hair dry finishing spray. Simply spray over the hair, focusing at the roots, and use your fingers to tousle the hair.
Giving your hair the occasional break from cleansing is actually good for it. Leaving your hair unwashed for a day or two can calm the over-production of natural oils which can leave your hair looking greasy.
Options, options, options
There are so many options when it comes to next-day hair. The natural texture caused by light build-up means a loose, wavy surfer girl style works perfectly. Alternatively, next-day hair can give depth to a messy ballerina bun or XXL ponytail. One of our favorites is a half-up hairstyle where the hair is clipped invisibly behind the ears except for a few wavy sections around the eyes.
If in doubt about whether this trend is a keeper or not, we always look to the red carpet. If celebrities aren't afraid to work a next-day look, then we certainly shouldn't be! Take the French actress Eva Green, for example, who dropped jaws at the Golden Globes 2016 with a textured, next-day lob (long bob) that she swept over into a side part to add even more originality. The messy, laid back nature of her hairstyle was the ideal contrast to her stunning gold beaded dress.
It's a yes from us: next-day hair is today's go-to style!
