Fashion Week isn’t just about the clothes and accessories, it’s also about the hair, makeup and nails. Unlike fashion, you can get instant gratification by testing out the looks as soon as the shows are over.

Hair How-To: Beachy Waves in Under 10 Minutes post image

When it comes to hair, the “grass is always greener” attitude seems to be a common thread among women. I, for one, have had poker straight hair all my life. For as long as I can remember, I’ve dreamed of having wavy, luxurious locks.

Here are my step-by-step tips to achieving sexy waves in less than ten minutes. [continue reading…]
