“If you have damaged hair, swap out your pillowcases for silk or satin ones. It's a quick and easy switch that can help prevent hair breakage throughout the night - plus, it may help prevent fine lines and wrinkles too.”
Alana Brooks: Blogger behind The Good Girl Gone Blog
“Use a lip primer or lip balm under your lip stain- it creates a smooth layer for the stain to adhere to, making dry, flaky skin unnoticeable.”
John Blaine: Celebrity Hairstylist and Creative Director for Obliphica Professional
“When you wash your hair with hot water, it opens up the top layer of the cuticle, which looks like shingles on a roof. This makes the hair very susceptible to breakage, tears, and strips away shine. To prevent this problem, rinse your hair with the coolest water it can take right before you get out of the shower or bath. This seals it all up and acts like an acrylic coat on your hair.”
David Barron: Colorist and owner of Barron’s London Salon in Atlanta
“If you have fine hair and want to change your life, get a modern perm. Yes, a perm! You don't have to wear it super curly, just blow dry out as usual. You will be surprised at how much life your hair will have by doing this!”
Christina Heiser: Associate Editor at DailyGlow.com
“A year ago, I started exfoliating my scalp once a week, which works better at removing product build up and embarrassing flakes than any clarifying shampoo I’ve tried. Doing this has literally transformed my hair!”
Bryce Gruber: Editor of The Luxury Spot
“Hot weather calls for beachy, gorgeous waves in my opinion, and since I don't live near a beach (darn you, Manhattan!) I've grown addicted to my faux-beach solution.Shower and wash hair at night, and just before getting out of the shower dab a dime size amount of a lightweight conditioner in your hair. Make sure you comb it through after, and anything too heavy will leave you a greasy mess. Wrap hair in a high, twisted bun before sleep and by morning you'll see gorgeous waves. Set them with an easy, peasy beach wave DIY spray. Mix a cup of water, 2 teaspoons of salt, and 3 teaspoons of your normal conditioner and add to a spray bottle. Voila! You're beachy gorgeous all day long, even in an office building.”

"Coconut oil on it's own is an amazing beauty product that can be used head to toe--on your dry elbows, to shave your legs, on your dry ends, or as a deep conditioner. Yes, it's greasy, but it’s also quick-absorbing into hair and skin and ultra hydrating with great results."
Felicia Walker Benson: Social Media Beauty Editor At Bergdorfs and Beauty Blogger Behind This That Beauty
"Sun protection is rarely thought of as a beauty product, but here's the reality -- the sun's harmful UV rays majorly contribute to the premature aging of skin. If you want to remain wrinkle-free for as long as possible, wear broad-spectrum SPF 30 every single day, rain or shine.The general rule of thumb is this: If it's daylight, wear sunscreen. Not only does the daily application of sunscreen help prevent wrinkles, it also helps keep the complexion even-toned and luminous."
