Gretta Monahan's Hair Tips for Travel — and Giveaway!

Between dry air on the plane and the stress of getting to the airport, it can be a challenge to land with perfect looking hair. Dove hairstylist Gretta Monahan (above left) shares some of her top tips:

• To combat dry cabin air, be sure to pack a hydrating spray mist for your face and an oil-based serum for your hair. Dove Nourishing Oil Care Serum* instantly smoothes flyaways, without weighing hair down. Plus, it is less than 3.4 oz, so you can apply at 30,000 feet!

• If you are in a rush to get to the airport, one fail-safe option for long locks is to apply a smoothing cream. Then, twist hair into a high bun and secure with a loose elastic. When you land, take out the bun and rake your fingers through for loose, shiny waves.

• For a quick and easy style, pop into the airplane or airport bathroom to pull your hair into a low, slightly-to-the-side pony—simple, but also fresh and modern. Add a bit of volume to the roots by teasing with a small brush, gather hair low behind one ear, and secure with a clear elastic. This style looks best when it is a bit “undone,” so finish with a flexible hold hairspray for perfectly imperfect plane hair.

• For shorter ‘dos, a soft bandeau headband is a great fix. They are easy to pack and available in a variety of fabrics, colors, widths and price points to complement any look and budget.

*GIVEAWAY ALERT: JSG is giving away 10 bottles of the new Dove Nourishing Oil Care Serum so you can try it for yourself. Email us at with Dove in the subject line and be sure to include your address. The giveaway ends on Sunday July 24 at 11:59 pm.
