We’ve all been there—after perfectly styling your mane, you’re left with a few small, wispy strands along your hairline that look super frizzy and just won’t seem to cooperate. You may be wondering how to get rid of baby hairs, but they don’t have to set you back the next time you’re gathering your strands into an updo or ponytail. In fact, with the right hairstyling tips, you may not find those little hairs to be such a bother after all! Read on to learn how to tame baby hairs using five different (easy) methods.
One of the easiest ways to tame your baby hairs? By embracing them! Seriously, baby hairs don’t have to be a bad thing. In fact, they can add a romantic, carefree vibe to your hairstyle. Some of our favorite styles, like the messy bun and a side-swept fishtail braid, look even more beautiful when paired with loose, wispy baby hairs. So, consider working with what you’ve got!
Yes, you read that right. The same toothbrush you use to brush your teeth (well, not literally the same one) can actually be used to keep your baby hairs smooth and in place. Here’s how.
What you’ll need:
L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray
What to do:
Grab a strong-hold hairspray and mist it over a clean, dry toothbrush.
Use the toothbrush like a mini hair brush to smooth your baby hairs, brushing them into place.
Continue to spritz and brush as needed until all of your frizzy baby hairs are smoothed. Then finish with one final mist of hairspray over your entire head.
If you can’t seem to get your baby hairs to stay put, you may want to try a different hairstyle—more specifically, a slick hairstyle. Slicked-back styles involve using a hair gel to smooth back your strands for a high-shine, super smooth finish. Even better, your hair gel of choice will easily tame your baby hairs. Here’s how to do a slick ponytail.
What you’ll need:
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel
Spritz your hair with a heat protectant, then use a flat iron to give yourself a pin-straight mane.
Take a small about of hair gel and rub it between your fingers. Work the gel onto your roots, smoothing backward (and taming your frizzy baby hairs in the process).
Gather your hair in a ponytail, positioning it where you’d like it. We love a slick high pony. After you’ve gathered your strands and there are no bumps or knots in sight, secure with a hair elastic. All done!

Wearing your hair down and simply want to keep your baby hairs out of the way? That’s where a hair pomade or paste comes into play. Take a dime-sized amount of the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Hair Putty, work it between your fingers, then use the pomade to smooth down your baby hairs wherever needed. Easy, right?
When in doubt, accessorize it out! The right hair accessories can tame baby hairs in a few seconds flat. One we’re particularly fond of? A headband! This handy accessory will get all the baby hairs along your hairline under control. And with so many different styles and patterns to choose from, a headband can help upgrade your outfit game, too.
