Need chic, work-appropriate hair like Cameron Diaz? Here’s how to get the look fast!

We’ve all had those Monday mornings where things just happen: you wake up late, your hair won’t cooperate, humidity turns your perfect hair into a crazy mess. This is where you need some great styling secret weapons to create meeting-ready hair NOW. Here are six amazing desk-sized beauty products to make sure your hair always looks fabulous:

Anti-Frizz Styling Gel: A great hair gel that tames frizz and creates a smooth texture is key. Keep Suave Professionals Weather Protection 365 Anti Frizz & Flyaway Cream Gel handy for just such an occasion.

Pontail Holders – A low ponytail always looks incredibly chic. Part hair over the arch of one eyebrow, then secure the style with a Sephora Collection Snag-Free Hair Elastics.

Headbands – Take a cue from Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf: headbands are a fast way to instant style. Always keep a Scunci No-slip Grip 2-strand Plastic Split Headband handy to manage flyaways and add extra polish.

Bobby Pins – Use them to whip hair into a quick updo or secure bangs during your growing-out phase. A pack of Conair Brush Styling Essentials Matte Minis Bobby Pins in a hue that matches your hair will save you every time.

Styling Tools – It doesn’t matter what kind of hair you have, this T3 Smooth Operator Flat Iron Styling Set has everything you need for a perfect blowout at home OR a quick ‘do at your desk. Combs, brush, sectioning pins – whatever you need, it’s in there.

Mini Flat Iron – If you have five minutes, this Babyliss Pro Nano Titatium Mini Flat Iron is perfect. It heats up quickly and is compact so you can store it in even the thinnest desk drawer. Just remember to unplug it when you’re done.

Head to your local super retailer and pick up these desk drawer hair essentials. You’ll never show up for that big meeting looking like a hot mess!
