Hair rollers are still a staple when it comes to the runway and red carpet, for but the rest of us, they may feel a bit outdated. Not only can rollers be tricky and tedious to use, but they can also make hair look too finished and done instead of tousled and lived-in. For the at-home self-stylist, though, satin rollers (which cost next-to-nothing) can give you modern waves with minimal effort. Bonus: Satin rollers are less abrasive than regular rollers and they reduce frizz.

1. Prep your hair by spritzing it with setting mist. For extra volume, use this volumizing spray and root lifter from Paul Mitchell.
2. Roll each section of hair away from the face. The larger the section, the looser the wave. For an extra-undone look, don’t roll the last two inches of hair.
3. Leave the rollers in overnight or set your waves quickly by blasting them with a fast blow dry. Check out Neuro Styling Tools here and contact us to order tools or products from Paul Mitchell.
4. Gently remove the rollers, rolling them down and away from your face.
5. If your curls are too tight, which they probably will be, loosen them up by tousling with your fingers and shaking your head.
You’re done! Now go be gorgeous all day long.

Ready for a style update? Fall is the perfect time to reinvent your look, whether you want a drastic change or something more subtle. A lot of 2015’s fall hair looks were informed by fashion week, while others are simply classic and always gorgeous. Try these looks on your own or make an appointment at our Poughkeepsie hair salon.

1. Warm sweaters and cozy fall clothes work well with a polished hairstyle that refines the look. Create a sleek ponytail by working in gel from your roots to your jawline, then raking back with a wide-tooth comb.
2. After you’ve finished blowing out your hair, wrap the top layers around five medium Velcro rollers for five minutes. You’ll get a slight wave, plus bounce and volume. If you want a pro to give your hair a blowout, contact our Poughkeepsie hair salon today, then read “How to Make a Blowout Last Longer” on our blog.
3. Sun, sand and saltwater have probably left you with split ends, so it’s time to shape up your mane. If you have a heart- or oval-shaped face, ask for layers that frame the face and start at the cheekbone. If your face is square, the layers should start at your jawline.

4. Instead of starting your curling iron at your roots, only curl a portion of your hair for a more natural, relaxed look. Start at your jaw level and curl down to your collarbone, using a 1.25-inch curling iron. Comb your hair with your fingers to soften the curls, but don’t use a brush. Need more curling iron tips?

5. Ask your stylist to cut bangs. This is the easiest way to re-style long hair without a major commitment. Long, piece-y bangs that skim the brow are popular right now. To soften the look, ask for more layers starting at the chin. Bouncing back from that one time you thought you wanted bangs? Read “How to Grow Out Your Bangs” on our blog.
6. Have you been mulling over the latest short hair cuts? Ask for side-swept bangs to be cut into your new look. The most flattering styles will be long, starting at your cheekbone and easily falling in with the rest of the cut. Don’t want to devote yourself to bangs? Comb your hair into a deep side part, which will fake the fringe.
