Accessories To Have In Your Purse For On-The-Go Styling

Picture this; you’re halfway through a shift at work, after a rough morning where you rolled out of bed just in time to be late. Suddenly, you get a text from that Tinder guy that you went out for sushi with last weekend. He was funny, and he didn’t have any pictures of him holding up a fish on his profile - a rare find. He says he’s going to be by your job around the time you get off, and asks if you’d like to grab dinner with him. This would be a dream scenario, except that your socks don’t match, and you haven’t washed your hair in four days.

But wait! You read this article, so you have a purse full of quick-fixes for precisely this predicament. Let’s see what you’ve got!

Dry Shampoo

A travel-size dry shampoo is essential. Not only will it absorb excess oil, but can also add volume and texture to limp hair. Bumble and Bumble’s Tres Invisible Dry Shampoo comes in a travel size, and is a permanent resident in my purse.

Bobby Pins

There are literally hundreds of ways to use bobby pins as a quick fix. If you’re looking for ideas, take a gander at some of our previous posts. Link braid post, ponytail post, etc.

Hair Tie/Elastic

I feel practically naked when I don’t have a hair tie around my wrist. Potentially the easiest option on this list, sometimes you have to commit to a ponytail because it’s all you’ve got.

Hair Spray

A travel size hairspray is never a bad idea, and can work together with your bobby pins and elastics to create date-worthy styles. Bumble also makes travel sizes of their hair sprays, Does It All is my go-to.

Comb/Compact Brush

If you didn’t even bother to detangle this morning, you’d better have one of these bad boys on hand. Not to mention, you can backcomb for volume or smooth your hair into a more sophisticated looking bun or ponytail.


You look great! You’ll have a great time at dinner, and as for the mismatched socks, just own it and make it fashion. Good luck!
