Most of us probably haven't seen the outside world in well over a week, however there's something about putting the slightest bit of effort into our beauty routines that help us feel productive. We're not saying to slip into a pair of stiff jeans and a full face of makeup while you WFH on the couch, but the simplest of things like doing your hair can actually go a long way in making us feel good.

Plus, with all of this newfound time on our hands, we might as well master the art of doing our own hair anyway. And with no open salons in sight, we decided to nail down the key essentials of a perfect at-home blowout. From high-quality hair clips to section out your hair to a chic leopard towel that cuts drying time in half, ahead you'll find 6 must-have products that will undoubtedly level up your home hair routine.
