A comb attachment on the end of your blow-dryer is the safest way to blow out your hair because it helps to detangle strands and reduce tension, which helps eliminate breakage.

For a slightly shaggy feel, take your medium-length strands and embrace some medium to plentiful layers that will help create amazing texture.

Hair Tip of the Day – Apr 5

Liven up your classic bob haircut by asking your stylist to create funky asymmetrical lines or snip chic short bangs. Be daring!

Hair Tip of the Day – Apr 3

Hair Tip of the Day – Apr 2

Create natural waves by securing freshly washed hair in a bun and allowing it to air-dry. Then remove the bun and finger-style beachy curls.

Hair Tip of the Day – Apr 1
