Any girl who’s more committed to having perfect hair than she is with any of her relationships would know how stressful it is to travel without her arsenal of styling tools. If she’s lucky, the hotel will have a blow dryer stashed in the bathroom drawer. But if lady luck chooses to stay behind with that can of hair spray you were made to leave at the airport, try these fail-proof traveling hairstyles suggested by hairstylist and makeup artist Jet Babas that’ll guarantee a good hair day while you’re on vacay.
The Top Knot
High or low, undone or slicked back, an easy bun or a ponytail will always be your safest bet whether you’re trying to make a good impression at immigration or just want your hair out of the way while enjoying the sights and scenes. As for Jet’s choice, a high ponytail always wins the bid.
Style it with: Embellished hair elastics to elevate it from basic status and make it more grown-up.

Pretty in Plaits
“Braids are in demand now,” says Jet who suggests this as an easy but dressy alternative to the classic ponytail. It’s also the fastest way to score instant beach waves if you haven’t got a curling tool with you.
Style it with: Sea salt spray spritzed on your tresses right before you begin to braid. Loosen it after by tugging on the braid for that perfect beach babe look.

Chop it Off
Think you’ll be gone for quite a while? Getting a wash and wear cut could be your best bet. “If you want to cut your hair, I suggest getting a bob or a pixie cut,” says Jet.
Style it with: A printed turban wrapped around your head to add color to your #ootd.
