So, your hair is done — after an hour of meticulously styling it. It’s perfect — yaaas! Now, you begin your makeup routine. Your hair needs to be completely out of your face so you can really focus on making your weekend-ready face flawless, right? Right. Only problem is you have zero time to deal with those annoying crimps, creases and bends that hair clips will inevitably leave behind in your ‘do when you pin your hair back. This is when Chrissy Teigen’s genius hair hack comes in to save the day (night?).


Chrissy’s hairstylist John Ruggerio is to thank for this smart idea that the new mom-to-be spilled in a recent Instagram pic. The key to working around those hair kinks are playing cards! That’s right, break out those dusty, trusty cards but instead of putting them on the table, put them in between the hair clip you’re using and your hair. The playing cards will take the brunt of the pressure from the clips that would normally crease your hair. Not only will your hair be totally out of your face as you do your makeup, but you won’t have to worry about having to touch it up or fix it because of hair clip hair bends. Simple as that, people. Cheers to the freakin’ weekend!
