Best Beauty Hacks for your Hair

Blow Out

If you’re not quite ready to go shorter or get a new color, you can spruce up your look in no time with a professional blow out - a great way to feel rejuvenated during those in-between times.

Bobby Pin Tricks

Thinking of trying a new hair do and have issues with bobby pins slipping out of your hair? Lay them on a paper towel and mist with dry shampoo or hairspray - this adds some grip to prevent them from falling out. Insert bobby pins with the smooth side up for the best hold. Looking for a fun use for these versatile styling tools? You can use bobby pins to make waves without using hot tools. By placing bobby pins on damp hair, about a half inch apart, you can create waves without putting heat on your hair.

The Swide Sweep

If you want to anchor your hair to the side and have it stay in place, make a small braid on the side you want it on to help hold your hair in place.

Tame Flyaways

Get those naughty baby hairs tamed by using a clean toothbrush. Mist the toothbrush with hairspray and brush along the hairline to target flyaways. An extra beauty hack you can try when using a toothbrush is to tame eyebrows or scrub flaky lips (sans hairspray) to make them smooth again.

Shiny Hair

Healthy hair makes all the difference in having a mane that’s manageable and fabulous. A great product that mutli-tasks for your hair is our Elixir 11 - it’s like magic in a bottle. Not only does it protect your hair, but it also makes it soft, reduces frizz, and adds shine.


Craving more volumized hair? Start teasing! This may sound like something straight out of an ‘80s Cosmopolitan, but this trick can still be used to add some nice volume to your hair, especially for a night out on the town. You can use a wide-toothed comb, or even a toothbrush, for a more subtle look. But if you really want to channel your inner Farrah Fawcett, who are we to stop you?!

Side Parts

Another way to add volume is to switch up the side you part your hair. It’ll fight back a little since it’s not used to going a different way, which gives you that extra oomph! Make sure to keep volume-boosting products on hand, like Give Me Lift, or invest in a Volume Kit to build up the fullness of your hair over time.

Best Beauty Hacks for Rebooting Your Look

Quick Facial

If you're on the go and need a quick refresh for your skin, try an express facial (it comes with a hand massage, too!). Not only is it budget friendly, but it’s also an effective way to get that youthful glow to usher in spring.

Makeup Refresh

Another fun way to get ready for a new season is to clean out your makeup bag. Throw away items that you’ve been holding onto for too long. Get adventurous and try some new shades to see what else works with your skin tone.

Eyelash Lift

A quick way to enhance your eyes and give fullness to your lashes in a pinch is to “stamp” them. Gently press your mascara wand against the underside of your lashes for a few extra seconds to give them a fuller look without using eyeliner. This is an especially great tip if you’re going for a more natural look, but still want the lift and definition of falsies or eyeliner.

Perfume Perfection

This is a simple beauty trick that goes a long way. When using perfume, instead of rubbing your wrists together, simply press them together for a few seconds and the fragrance will last longer.
