Instead of grabbing a traditional hair tie and throwing your hair up, Paul Labrecque, a celebrity hairstylist and the artistic director of Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa, recommends twisting it to the top of your head and securing it with a silk scrunchie. The reason? "When you take an [elastic] out of your hair, sometimes the action can rip out hair, and as you sleep, sometimes any movement and head turning in bed can remove it, too," he says. "Silk is a great option for slip control, especially if you find any strands breaking loose from a ponytail on your own." Plus, thanks to silk's delicate nature, it won't leave an indent in your hair, which means you'll be able to maintain your style overnight.

In addition to properly securing your hair while you sleep, Labrecque also suggests investing in a silk pillowcase. "With a regular pillowcase, you're more likely to see static, and there's a possibility of experiencing unwanted tangles and knots," he explains. "With silk, there will be no static electricity, so your hair has less potential to get knotted than it would if you were sleeping on cotton or linen." Unlike other materials, silk allows the hair to maintain its natural oils, which also helps to prevent frizz and dehydration. And as an added bonus, resting your head on a static-free pillowcase may also help you cut down styling time in the morning.
