Looking to revamp your haircare routine in preparation for the humid days of summer? Ulta’s spring sale, the so-called Gorgeous Hair Event, is the first place you should look. For the next three weeks, the beauty retailer is offering 50 percent off everything from Klorane shampoo to Chi straighteners. But instead of a traditional sale format with everything being discounted at once, each day brings a new batch of half-off savings—think of it like an advent calendar, but instead of little pieces of chocolate, you get a smooth, shiny coiffure. Here, we’ve broken down the best products and tools to keep an eye on during each day of the sale:
