Blond Therapy

Blond highlights? Selectively shampoo your hair. Apply shampoo only on the roots, not on the shaft, to avoid drying out already fragile hair.

Salon preparation

Ditch the highlight descriptors (baby blond versus honey blond) and talk to your colourist through pictures. Bring magazine photos of the shade you're after.

Hair for your face

To make a round face look oval, avoid haircuts that are shorter than shoulder length. Side parts tend to widen the face, so opt for a middle-part. A few layers in front will elongate the face.

Ingrown no more

Prevent ingrown hairs by exfoliating skin with a gentle body scrub or body brush three times a week.

Nail it down

Never file your nails after you shower; it weakens the nail and causes tears.

Wax on, wax off

Avoid showering or applying moisturizer for several hours after a wax treatment. Waxing opens up the hair follicles, so it’s best to allow them to close first to prevent ingrown hairs.

Stain, stain, go away

Maybe you shouldn’t have ordered spaghetti while wearing a white blouse. Try this: wet a cleaning wipe for quick spot cleaning. It won’t set the stain, and you’ll see immediate results.

Curling iron mishap

If you've accidentally burned yourself curling or straightening your hair (hello, morning rush!), treat with cold water, then break open a capsule of vitamin E and dab on top.

Cover the puff

If you wake up with swollen eyelids, avoid pale eye shadow, which will only highlight them. Instead, stroke on eye color that’s at least one shade darker than your normal skin.

Eye-opening mornings

Speed up your morning routine with three beauty boosters: a lash-enhancing product, monthly lash tints and an eyelash curler. A lash tint eliminates the need for mascara, leaving your curler free of gunk.

Shape up

Most eyebrows grow in one of two shapes: an up-and-down arch or a gentle arc. For the most organic, natural-looking brows, follow -- don’t fight -- your own shape.

Quiz

Meditation will help reduce your sensitivity to pain if you sit in the lotus position for _________ every day for three days.
