Lazy girls (and busy suburban moms), rejoice!
You no longer have to wait 10 to 15 minutes to hydrate your hair. Leave it to Modern Family's Claire Dunphy to find a more efficient, just as effective way. Julie Bowen appeared at the 2018 Critics' Choice Awards in an architectural half-wrapped bun that looked just as equally fun as it did chic. To get the structural look, however, required a lot of hot-tools work. Whether you're going to a fancy award show or just blow-drying your hair for the day, heat can damage unprotected strands.
"That gives the hair a nice conditioned base for the blowout," the Modern Family hairstylist explained.
The leave-in product contains honey (for shine), pure almond extract (for moisture) and burdock root (for strength), but unlike hair masques, there's no need to wash it out. The oil-free, lightweight formula won't weigh down strands either and works for both color-treated and natural tresses.

"After the blow-dry was complete, I parted her hair in the middle and clipped it down to create a nice, smooth, shiny part. I used an Instyler flat iron to smooth the cuticle and create the high shine," said Jessica.
After pulling the hair back into a ponytail and applying Ouai Hair Oil, Jessica pinned the ponytail "into a half-wrapped bun, with the ends sticking out."
Even if you're not creating Julie's structural masterpiece, you just found a moldable leave-in conditioner you can wear to work, to drinks and beyond.
