Face masks are not a one size fits all product. Not only does every face have different concerns to address, but each one has various issues depending on the area. The solution? Using multiple masks, all at once. Here’s how:
Happy Labor Day! The end of the summer is always incredibly bittersweet. Fall is one of my favorite seasons, but I am certainly going to miss the relaxed beach vibes of summer. You know what will soften the blow? Some shopping, of course. Luckily, plenty of my favorite brands are offering killer deals this weekend. Here are some of the best:
When it comes to makeup, I am a true minimalist. My skincare and hair care routines are definitely more involved than my everyday makeup look…but that is a post for a different day
Over the past two years or so, I have really embraced a less is more approach. The best part of this attitude? Getting from my bed, out of the shower (on non-hair washing days, of course) and out the door in about eight minutes flat. Truly! Here is my easy routine:
No, I’m not just full of hot air. It is time to drop those blowdryers, flat irons, curling irons and hot rollers in favor of air-dried locks. While natural breeze coming off the ocean is obviously preferable, the drifts felt by NYC subways count as well. Not only is this the hair look du jour, but it is also a great way to give your strands a nourishing break from all the stress you put them under (I’m looking at you, highlights.) Hairstylist Lacy Redway, who works with clients including Olivia Palermo and Jourdan Dunn, filled me on how to master this trend.
CC: Can any type of hair rock this look?
LR: This trend is all about embracing your natural texture. Most women don’t even know what their natural texture looks like because we have been using heat and/or chemicals to alter our natural textures for so long. I think any hair type can rock this look because it’s more about self acceptance and learning what products work for you.
CC: What products do you recommend for air drying?
CC: What if you want the air-dried look, but need to dry your hair quickly? Can you achieve this look with a blow dryer?
LR: A hair dryer diffuser will dry your hair quickly, but without irritating your natural texture . I use ghd Air diffuser along with my dryer when I’m home, but for travel I pack my YS Park sock Diffuser .
BB: How can you keep air dried hair from getting crazy and puffy?
LR: The key is to keep your hair moisturized. Locking in the moisture will help fight against frizz. Also, a good hair mousse will keep your hair in place.
