    Wed, 9 November 2011 10:06AM

    As a beauty editor, I’m constantly fielding grooming-related questions and hair woes seem to always be high on everyone’s agenda. Most of the time, it’s questions like: what’s this dry shampoo stuff? How can I stop my hair from looking flat before the morning is out? How did you curl your ends like that? I… more

    For all your Primpers with fine, slightly limp hair, I have some brilliant news for you. YOU ARE NOT ALONE, SISTER. I too have fine, slightly limp hair, and when I’m not tossing it into a top knot I do, believe it or not, actually spend 1 -2 minutes fluffing it up to fool the… more

  • The Massive New Beauty Trend I Haven’t Really Raved on About Yet.
