Celebrity Chat

Ashley Benson’s Pretty Little Liars character Hanna may be keeping a secret or two, but when it comes to the actress’ mane reality, she’s ready to reveal all her tress truths to Sophisticate’s

ASHLEY BENSON

“Being the only blonde on the show is pretty awesome.”

“I usually just do some highlights and lowlights in my hair.”

ASHLEY BENSON

“My typical styling routine is usually styling my hair curly but messy.”

“I love that wavy, beachy, messy look—it’s sexy and casual.”

Hair Tip of the Day – Sept 13

Hair Tip of the Day – Sept 12


 

Sept. 12

 
Before styling your hair with a flat iron, add shine with a glossing treatment. The heat from styling tool will lock in the sheen!

Hair Tip of the Day – Sept 10

Sept. 9

 
Love the simplicity of wearing ponytails? Avoid breakage by using cloth-covered elastic bands without the metal casing.

Hair Tip of the Day – Sept 8


 

Sept. 8

 
If you do a lot of heat styling, apply a heat protectant to the hair to protect it from any damage that could occur from using too much heat.

Hair Tip of the Day – Sept 7


 

Sept. 7

 
Worried about your haircolor growing out too fast? Ask your stylist to foil hair in very fine sections to help disguise outgrowth.

Hair Tip of the Day – Sept 6


 

Sept. 6

 
Demi-permanent color lasts for 28 shampoos but it does not lighten your hair. Use this type of haircolor if you want to tweak your natural shade.

Hair Tip of the Day – Sept 5


 

Sept. 5

 
Keep long-lasting waves by crafting loose spirals with a curling iron and pinning them up (while they cool) to lock in their shape.

Hair Tip of the Day – Sept 4


 

Sept. 4

 
Semi-permanent haircolor lasts between 8 and 10 shampoos, so it’s ideal for someone who doesn’t wash her hair every day.

Hair Tip of the Day – Sept 3


 

Sept. 3

 
Getting married? Schedule a hair trial/consultation with your hairstylist well in advance before the big day.

Hair Tip of the Day – Sept 2

Overheated curls can lose their bounciness. Avoid keeping your hair wound around a curling for too long or you may lose the texture you desire.

Hair Tip of the Day – Sept 1

Don’t forge to clean your styling tools. Wipe down flat iron plates and curling iron clasps with a damp rag while the flat iron is cooled, but still slightly warm, to easily remove product build-up.
