Bobby pins & hair ties

These essentials are no-brainers to have on hand at all times. Bobby pins and hair ties make it easy to take your hair from work to play and are perfect for quick styles in a hurry — not to mention for second day hair! Hair ties provide a good base for any updo, while bobby pins accompany them for intricate or piecey details.

Travel-sized hair products

Travel-sized anything is extremely convenient due to its size. Unplanned overnighter? Small travel bottles of shampoo and conditioner can come through in a pinch, along with those samples you've been collecting! Mini getaways are the perfect opportunities to use them. Small bottles of hairspray and anti-frizz control are also smart to keep on hand for emergency quick fixes.

A versatile hair accessory

It's always safe to keep a versatile hair accessory in tow to add a touch of flair to your style at a moment's notice. Meeting friends after work for drinks? Pop in a fun clip or comb. Meeting your in-laws for dinner after a long day? Slip on a headband to polish up your pony. Accessories can automatically make your 'do look put together, no matter how the day has worn on your hairstyle.
