If you have wavy hair, you know it can sometimes be temperamental. It's often prone to frizz and heavy styling products can weigh your waves down. Luckily, there are products out there that will help you enhance your natural waves without making your hair feel greasy or stiff.
We often consider our hairstylists close confidants. But are there things they aren't telling us? Yes! While some tips might be easier to share, like how to best shampoo locks, others are a bit more sensitive. Like when a client has Shirley Temple hair and can't understand why she's not able to transition to Gwyneth Paltrow straight strands with ease.
Can you imagine how much more we could accomplish if we didn't spend so much time brushing and styling our hair? While that may sound easier said than done, when it comes down to it a great haircut and a few key products can set you up to be ready in no time.
The glass hair trend was huge a few years ago and for good reason. After all, who doesn't want their locks to look sleek and shiny? The trend was all about pairing a sharp, angular bob with a glossy finish and there were no flyaways in sight. It was the ultimate high-maintenance hairstyle.
When it comes to hair tools, the curling iron really reigns supreme. You can use it to create loose, beachy waves or voluminous, bouncy curls or old-school Hollywood glam hairdos. Of course, not all curling irons are created equal. In fact, some can even be tricky to use. Luckily, we're here to help.
Whether you've got subtle waves or tight ringlets, finding the right hair care products that bring your texture to life can be a real struggle. The key is to narrow your search to products specifically formulated for curly hair. It can make all the difference between shiny, glossy tendrils and a frizzy disaster.
We've all been told to keep heat styling to a minimum to avoid damaging our hair. "The heat from hot tools compromises the protective layer of the hair follicle, which can damage strands making them weak and prone to breakage," says celebrity hairstylist Sally Hershberger. "Hot tools also tend to strip hair of natural oils, which is why overly processed hair can appear dry and fried."
As someone with thick, coarse, curly locks, I've always found it difficult to manage my hair at home. But I'm obsessed with how shiny and bouncy my hair looks after a professional blowout. That's why I would hit up my local blowdry bar almost weekly. Until the pandemic that is.
Imagine a world where you don't have to untangle that ridiculously long cord attached to your curling iron or flatiron. A world where hot tools live peacefully in your carryon or even in your purse. A world where you can touch up your look on the go. Or even, dare we say, while camping.
Hopping into the shower and washing your hair feels like second nature at this point. But it's totally possible you've picked up a few bad habits along the way that are working against your good hair days. Like overdoing it with keratin products or going ham with sudsing.
The dog days of summer are here. All that heat and all the humidity in the air can lead to a major case of frizz. Never fear. We're here to ensure your hair is as smooth and silky as you want it to be this season. Regardless of how hot and steamy it gets outside, these anti-frizz serums are best in class when it comes to taming frizz and adding shine. Even at the height of summer.
With everything going on in the world right now there's a very real possibility you've experienced some hair loss. Fortunately, stress-related hair loss, referred to as telogen effluvium, is temporary and reversible. There are even over-the-counter products available that can help expedite the regrowth process.
It would be an understatement to say we're obsessed with K-beauty. At least on the skin care front. From ultra hydrating sheet masks to souped-up sunscreens to glass skin serums, some of the most innovative and effective products on the market hail from South Korea.
Air-drying might just be the new blowdry this summer. Whether you just took a dip in the pool, are trying to keep cool or just can't be bothered with a blowdryer after your shower, you can still rock glorious locks. We reached out to three hairstylists for their best tips on air-drying like a pro.
If you have curly hair, you know that the styling products you use can make or break your mane. Curl cream is one of the best options for defining curls and giving them their signature bounce. But what works for someone with loose waves may not be the right match for someone with tight coils. So before you buy curl cream you need to consider your curl type and pattern.
The right branding and packaging can normalize any product. No longer are vaginal bacteria-killing products and eczema creams banished to the back of your medicine cabinet. Even acne is being embraced thanks to brands like Starface , which turned brightly colored blemish patches into must-have accessories. Brands like Starface aren't all about style over substance, however. The industry-shifting products featured in the following slideshow work just as great as they look and effectively treat everything from boob sweat to thigh chafing.
There is no shortage of stellar new beauty brands competing for our attention. While testing through them can be part of the journey, sometimes we don't have the energy, time or funds to waste on lackluster lines. So, we've asked beauty experts for their picks of the under-the-radar hair, wellness and skin care brands that are totally worth a spot on your shelf.
Some things become trends because they're totally new and captivating. Other things become trends based on sheer hype. Yet, it's not often something becomes a trend because it's practical. But in these unprecedented times, sensibleness and limited resources (no regular hair appointments) are just the things to make grown-out bangs a trend. Holly Dear, founder of Dear Clark and House of Dear (coming late February 2021), says that grown-out bangs are the natural progression of quarantine and people going months without a haircut. With salons closing in 2020, people were left with the option of cutting their own hair or letting layers grow. A few wonky fringes were enough for many people to embrace longer, grown-out bangs and make them a proper trend that is continuing into this year.
