At Monday's inauguration, the Obama women made sleek, healthy hair in January look easy-but when it comes to frizz, frigid temperatures can be just as daunting as sweating it out at a mid-July picnic. We spoke with Chris Lospalluto from Sharon Dorram Color at Sally Hershberger Uptown in New York City about how to tame flyaways when there's no avoiding winter cold and winds. "It's all about prep," he says. "There's no one miracle product-you need to find the ones that are right for your hair type."

Condition.
"Leave-in conditioner, like Alberto VO5 Detangle & Shine, creates a little bit of weight in your hair and keeps it nourished and moisturized. Even if you go outside and it gets blown around, it won't get superstatic-y."


Smooth. "Oribe Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray is really good for static. Even if it's not humid outside, it still protects your hair from frizzing out. Anti-frizz serum, like Kerastase Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide, can also help tame flyaways. You can even lightly mist Static Guard over your hair or keep a dryer sheet in your handbag if you notice a lot of static."

Shape."You don't want to put too much product in your bangs or they'll get supergreasy. To give them a little structure, backcomb the bangs a tiny bit at the root-just don't tease them '80s style-and use a little brushable hair spray to keep them down. It will hold in the moment, but you can soften them up if they become too stiff."
