Afternoon beauty fix: Give your hairstyle more power with an evening shower

Showering at night seems to be at the expense of perfect hair the next day—how can I make it work?
Perfection is a tough standard to meet when your schedule only allows for a certain amount of primping in the morning. Maintain your night-before routine but embrace the idea of doing textured hair the next day. Combine a flexible styler like Sebastian Professional‘s Potion 9 ($20, at salons) with the heat of your hairdryer to give your hair character as you twist it into an imperfect braid or curl in some loose waves—both looks are on-trend and easier to achieve after eight hours of pillow talk.
