Normally pull your hair up?
Leave it down
With the right products, naturally wavy hair can air-dry into a style that's relaxed but not a bit disheveled. Work a styling cream through damp hair to smooth its natural texture. Then spritz a volumizer (try Redken Body Full Volume Amplifier, $16) along the roots to coax out some height at the crown.

Why the change will do you good: Wearing your hair down creates flattering softness around your neck and décolletage—and might even lighten your mood.
