Hair. Does it ever do what is expected of it? Too little styling, and it takes on a mind of its own. But too much styling crosses the line from a finishing touch to a weighted-down mess. Oribe Fiber Groom ($29) whips misbehaving hair into shape. The fiber paste targets strands with polymers so styles stay light and bouncy. Plus, it conditions hair, protects it from UV rays and adds a subtle shine. Apply to dry or damp hair and style as usual. Good for long, short and curly hair on both ladies and gents, Oribe Fiber Groom is available at Oliver’s Salon.
Conserving modern society’s most precious commodity, time, comes at a price for a great number of women. Unwashed, half-styled hair is a price often paid to save time, but Lulu Organics is dishing out payback in the form of hair powder ($30), a dry shampoo that gives unwashed hair extra wear time.
Dab a small amount onto the palm, and rub the lavender- and sage-scented organic powder into dry hair. The 4-ounce canister of talc-free powder contains organic ingredients such as cornstarch, white clay, rice powder and essential oils, all of which lend to clean, volumized hair to go.
Lulu Organics hair powder also comes in a travel-size, 1-ounce container ($9.50). To purchase this on-the-go styling product, visit The Glam Room Salon. —Alex Kluesner
Exposed arms and gams are part of spring fashion, and luckily a gorgeous glow goes with everything. By now we know that going UV-free is the best way to bronze, and Fake Bake Airbrush Instant Self-Tanning spray ($31.99) gives professional effects for a fraction of the cost.
Paraben- and preservative-free, Airbrush has a 360-degree nozzle to help self-appliers avoid stripey mishaps. Its quick-drying formula means you can apply it and be out the door minutes later.
