National Hair Day | October 1
(Last Updated On: November 9, 2022)


On October 1st, National Hair Day gives the nod to all the styles, products, tools, and people who keep our hair healthy and looking its best.


When the clothes don’t fit, or you’re running late, it’s always nice to know your hair looks great. Whether we are seeking a new cut or we’ve found the perfect one, we want to keep it looking as fresh as it was when we left the salon. The right styling tools and hair care products go a long way toward maintaining a healthy, luxurious hairstyle.

When is National Clean Beauty Day?

From fine and thin to thick and course, there are products out there to curl, straighten, repair, lift, enrich, volumize, moisturize, restore, hold and sculpt! Creating unique hairstyles is an art form and health regime, too.

During this fashionable observance, put your best style forward.  Let no wind, no storm hold you back!


Let your hair be your crowning glory.  What’s your favorite hair routine? Give a shout-out to your stylist or seek a new look. Explore the latest haircare products to keep your hair the healthiest it can possibly be. We all know what a good cut and style can do for our attitude.

Q. What are some memorable hairstyles from film and TV?

Another memorable hair moment for the movies is Christopher Reeves’ Superman. The curl in front outdid itself.

Jim Cary’s role of Ace Ventura in the film of the same name had a hair-raising style.

John Travolta’s in Grease fit the 1950s rebel style. Speaking of rebels, Travolta’s role mimicked that of James Dean’s style in several films, including Rebel Without A Cause. Travolta’s was just a little more souped-up than Dean’s.

Marge Simpson’s unforgettably blue beehive also serves as the ultimate storage system.
