Make your own Emergency Hair Kit!

Hey, Barbizon of Akron! We love to say "better safe than sorry..." That's why when we found this blog from sheknows.com on what to have in your emergency hair kit, we just had to share it! Do you have items that you would add to the list? Let us know in the comments on our Facebook page!

I'm sure all of us ladies can agree that the Murphy's law of hair snafus happens at the most inconvenient times! Whether you have an impromptu work meeting or last-minute plans with the girls, hair emergencies always know when to rain on your parade. In dire need of rescue? These items are must-haves to keep on hand if you need to dial hair 911.

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.

Mini styling tools
Adorable and convenient? Who doesn't like the sound of that?! Cordless curling irons and straighteners are easy to maneuver and perfect for quick touch-ups. The small tools come with thermal storage pouches, making them easy travel companions — compatibly sized for purses and carry-ons.

Comb
A comb is a multipurpose lifesaver — as it can tease for volume, tame fly-aways and detangle problematic knots. Slipping one in your purse can save you when you need a hair makeover in a hurry.

Tip

Keeping these items on hand can be a lifesaver — not to mention something every woman wishes she had in hair emergencies. Got some free time this weekend? Put together a quick emergency kit of your own! Whether stored in your purse or in your car, your hair emergency kit will come through for you in the frizziest of situations!
