Winter Hair and Makeup Survival Tips
Considering the fact that 1/3 of the U.S. population is being affected by this “colossal storm” (if anyone has been reading weather.com lately, the headlines have been straight from a horror movie), we wanted to prepare everyone for that worst case scenario. You know the one – when you’re just simply trying to walk to the subway, hail down a cab, or get to your car in the parking lot and all of a sudden the wind picks up, your umbrella breaks and it looks like you just stepped out of the shower. I had an unfortunate incident a few months ago in which the dye from my dress literally dripped down my legs the rest of the way home.
Anyway, to save us all from a bit of embarrassment today, tomorrow, and probably the rest of this horrible winter, here are a few tips to salvage your appearance.
If you find that your is suddenly caught in a downpour of sleet/rain/”wintry mix”, once you get inside try seeing if your bathroom has a hand blow dryer. If it does, lucky you. Dry your hair underneath that dryer and since it probably won’t look as good as it did this morning, tie it in a messy side braid (all the rage right now). If you don’t have a dryer on hand, take paper towels and soak up all of the moisture from your strands. If your hair has natural curl, there should be enough texture left for a messy bun. And finally, if you have straight hair just again wrap your damp hair into a braid and once dry, shake out and you’ll have gorgeous waves!
