Hair Care Part Deux
Dear G, I loved your hair tips from a few weeks ago. Do you have any more? Best, Amber
Dear Amber, do I have more hair care tips? That’s like asking Suze Orman for more money tips…like asking Mario Batali for more pasta tips…like asking Buzz Aldrin for more moon tips (what, too much?).
Okay, so I like hair. And while I may have absolutely no professional knowledge on the subject, I am lucky enough to surround myself with those that do. And luckily for this email, I have picked up a few things along the way.
Here’s round two of my favorite haircare tips that will help keep you locks looking chic week after week!
The Straight Story: My hair has a little natural wave to it, so I like to straighten it. After I blow it out, I smooth the ends with a ceramic straightening iron. I finish it off with some Alterna's Caviar Working Hairspray. When I want a little extra volume, I tease the back with a fine-tooth comb and finish with hairspray.
On the Town: When I’m headed for a big night out with Bill or my girlfriends, I love to add a little curl! Take a 2 inch curling iron and while curling, leave the ends out one inch to give your hair a beach-y, fabulous look. In only minutes, it takes your look from day to night!
Up and Out: When I need to create a cute but quick look, I tease the hair on the crown of my head to add volume and then pull it back into a tight ponytail. I use a flat iron on the ends for a sleek and edgy look.
