Are baby hairs the bane of your existence? Especially when you've been carefully blow-drying your freshly-washed hair only to see those fine, feathery wisps suddenly showing themselves.
Don't worry, it's not just you. Baby hairs are notoriously tricky to control.
"They’re a lot thinner and shorter than the rest of your hair, and as a result, they can be hard to control and style", says Joanne Dodds from .
But it's not entirely impossible.
Here are some dos and don'ts for taming your misbehaving baby hairs...
DON'T shave or wax your baby hairs
"Unless you can commit to serious and costly laser treatment
– like Kim K, who lasered her baby hairs away because she kept getting breakouts on her forehead – there aren’t any realistic, long-term solutions."
Some women do opt for threading, but remember all of these methods aren't permanent and you will have to deal with the hairs growing back.
DO try this hairspray trick
Your best bet at taming those baby flyaways is hairspray and knowing how to use it.
Want to know a styling secret? Spray a spoolie (eyebrow brush) or unused toothbrush with hairspray and then gently run it over your baby hairs to smooth them down. The thickly clustered bristles will ensure not one tiny hair escapes.
This is the best hairspray hack we've ever heard of
DON'T try a sleek 'do unarmed
However, it's not just hairspray you'll need to really nail a smooth style.
"If you're after a really sleek, glossy look, something like (£17.75) could help with keeping any wispy, stray hairs under control", says Joanne.
Apply it close to the scalp and then work through the hair before styling your sculpting hold.
DO go for relaxed styles and updos
If sticking your baby hairs down just DOES NOT work, go for more relaxed and casual styles instead.
"Baby hairs can really complement a cute, messy bun or a wavy, half up-half down style as, like these ‘dos, baby hairs are very youthful", says Joanne.

DO consider a pixie cut or fringe
You could also consider disguising your baby hairs within your cut.
"Soft fringes are great as they hide most things (an alternative to botox too, some say) as well as pixie cuts", says Jonathon.
"Anything that frames the face really."
