Truth time: At this point in the quarantine game, you've lost track of how many Zoom meetings have made their way onto your weekly calendar. And when you've been living in pajamas all day, everyday, getting yourself camera-ready is no easy feat.
If you're looking for healthy inspo, look no further than fitness guru Mari Llewellyn, founder of Bloom Nutrition and Mari Fitness. Perhaps best known for having dropped multiple dress sizes through diet and exercise, she's the force behind a massively popular Instagram page.
Summer is a time when low-maintenance beauty reigns supreme. Still, it's fun — not to mention, important — to indulge in skin care, makeup, and bath products that give your body much-needed relief in the hot summer months. Some of these products will protect your skin before, during, and after you lounge poolside. Others will help you prepare for what's ahead (ahem, months of regular self-tanning and/or sandals).
So, embracing our naturally curly hair has become a big thing in the last few years. A trend, if you will. But it's not just a trend; it's a lifestyle. You have to live and breathe your curls... or else they will defeat you.
Got roots? Unless you've been using your insolation time to improve your DIY hair color skills, the answer is yes. So... if you've got 'em, flaunt 'em! There's no need to stress about covering grown-in roots if you prefer to leave your hair color to the professionals. Visible roots add that certain "too busy and too cool to care too much" vibe to any haircut — and that same feeling can be translated into hairstyles. And trust us: There are more ways off roots than a splatter of slime green, a la Billie Eilish.
When it comes to my hair, I'm about as laid back as it comes. Though I've struggled with acne throughout my teens and adult life, my locks have always been easy-going and simple to manage. Usually, I wash my hair a few times a week, add some leave-in conditioner or coconut oil, brush it out and let it air dry. For when I'm heading out to dinner with my boyfriend or meeting my friends for drinks, I'll sometimes throw in a few curls — but otherwise, I let it do its natural thing.
Forget about the new roaring 20s. Everything 90s is back, baby — from slip dresses, to tracksuits, to tendrils. It girls like Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Ciara, Hailey Bieber, Dua Lipa and Jennifer Lopez have captured the late 90s/early 2000s mood by finishing their hairstyles with those unmistakable face-framing tendrils.
The first time I heard of salt shampoo I immediately just assumed it was a gimmick. I mean, why on Earth would a person want to load up their scalp with granular bits of salt?? That sounds like the opposite of a luxury, in-shower experience. But, ever-curious about new beauty loot — and intrigued with the uptick in the number of salt shampoo launches — I decided to give it a go, a la Playa's California Salt Shampoo, $38. This is my experience from beginning to end (or should I say from root to end?).

Look, I know it's tempting — yes, I've looked up trimming shears on Amazon, too. But celebrity hairstylist Michelle Cleveland is here to talk you off the ledge. She's got us all covered with some seriously good advice on why you shouldn't cut your own hair (no, not even a tiny trim), and what you should be doing instead.
When you have curly hair, there's a lot of pressure to grow it super long and have it always be big because it's so pretty. That's great and long hair is beautiful... but short hairstyles can be fun too — and also often are less work than having these long curls that reach down your back (and take hours upon hours to detangle and style).
As someone with curly hair, I know first-hand how difficult it can be to keep my curls soft, smooth, and frizz-free. I'm always on the hunt for new products that will make styling my mane easier, and I've been pleasantly surprised to see an uptick in products specifically formulated for curly hair recently. Here are the new launches I'm most excited about. Your curls will thank me!
Anyone who has tried to get rid of a blemish that has appeared overnight knows that great skin requires diligence and patience. Sure, some women won the genetic lottery and can get away with nothing more than washing their face to maintain a glowing complexion... but alas, we can't all be so lucky.
Yes, we've got bigger things to worry about... but you know what? It's still okay if you're a little bit concerned about what you're going to do about your hair while you're practicing social distancing.
Edward Tricomi, co-founder and celebrity hairstylist at the world-famous Warren-Tricomi Salons, has been styling the likes of Mick Jagger and Scarlett Johansson for decades. Not to mention that he has worked with icons like Coco Chanel, Salvador Dalí and even Freddie Mercury. In his late 60s, Tricomi still has an enviable mane, so when he recommends products you better believe that we listen.
Whether you're just looking for change because you're doing a bit of a personal makeover, or you're in that "they dumped me so now I'm going to change my hair" phase... or even if you just wanna look like Dakota Johnson, you've got a few things to think about before you make the big decision to get bangs.
No matter what your hair type, the need for dry shampoo is universal. Whether you're just finishing up a workout, or you're simply too lazy to make today a wash day, dry shampoo is a must. While dry shampoo sprays are truly a staple for all, dry shampoo foams are quickly taking the beauty industry by storm.
