TOOLS GET THE RIGHT TOOLS FOR THE JOB With any task, it pays to have the right tools for the job. To create an individual style quickly and precisely, without damaging your hair, it pays to invest in quality. Always go for the top of the range (or the top of your budget!)when buying hairdryers, curling wands or styling irons – and the new devices are feats of precise engineering, combining advanced plates, fusion tecnology and mineral infusion, just to name a few. TREATMENTS Leave-in conditioners and masks can sometimes be like those second cousins you don’t know very well. But trust me, you all can be such good friends! So, damaged hair, meet leave-in conditioner. Supplementing your hair care regime with regular intensive treatments will help to keep hair in good shape. Leave-in conditioner locks in moisture and as a result, your hair not only becomes stronger, but more fl exible. Investing in a weekly hair repair treatment leads to less breakage and more shine, helping to keep those nasty split ends in tow. Hurrah! 1. 1. EVY PROFESSIONAL Infusalite Dryer, $210, 2.

3 extra ways TO FLICK FINE HAIR TO THE CURB BE CAUTIOUS WITH LAYERS Fine, limp hair can look even more fine and limp if you have too many layers in your hair. Instead opt for a blunt cut to create a more voluminous look to your hair. PLAY THE PART For an instant root booster on the run, simply switch sides of where you naturally part your hair. To build the most height, try a deep side part on the opposite side on dry hair, and fix with a light hairspray. SEE THE LIGHT Lightening hair can make locks look thicker as it “roughs up” the hair cuticle, plumping the individual hair shafts. Be careful though; bleaching your hair too much can make it prone to breakage and split ends, which makes hair look thinner. Strategically placed lowlights and highlights are really effective in adding dimension and texture to hair, making it look thicker, fuller and healthier. We’re all about creating a style that needs to last for as long as possible and Dry Shampoo does an awesome job of making dirty hair look clean! Great for in-between washes, especially if you have a fringe, these beauties remove excess oil and can be a reassuring option if you’re anxious about breaking the once-a-day washing habit. It’s also a fave styling product for adding a surefire volume boost! Batiste Dry Shampoo Limited Edition Tempt, $12.95 www.cosbeauty.com.au 97
