If you like looking polished but don’t have the time, money or patience for Salon visit. Read below and discover 5 temporary beauty fixes.
If you hate holiday chat with the hairdresser, have disastrous dates with the nail technician or just sit and cry in pain at the waxing salon, here are some temporary beauty fixes to tide you over.
When you have more bare nail than polish
It’s annoying when you have perfect chip-free gel nails but the look is let down by regrowth.
Salon sessions are expensive, so keep your manicure intact longer by filling in the space between your cuticle and the polish with a glitter topcoat.
When your hair is starting to resemble a zebra
When you have a stripe down the middle of your head from root regrowth and don’t have the time to let a professional tend to your tresses, backcomb your roots for some lift and wear your hair parted to the side to limit the discolouration on show.
Or, you could always go down the Miley Cyrus-loved #BLOW salon route by covering them with glitter.
When you are growing your own fur coat
If you prefer to stay fuzz free but can’t keep to your next waxing appointment, you can always shave. Just remember that you’ll need to wait around two weeks afterwards to get enough regrowth to go back to waxing again.
When your eyebrows are out of control
If your eyebrows are off doing their own thing and not even the best brow taming products can keep them looking sleek, it’s time to use the power of your makeup bag.
It’s not a good idea to start plucking your own brows if you don’t know what you’re doing, so fill in your brow shape as normal, then cover the hairs you want to hide with a concealer that matches your skin tone.
When your hair has the same amount of style as a bale of hay
If you rely on regular blow-dries to keep your locks looking stylish, a fool-proof method of turning your straw-like barnet into something more acceptable is to opt for an intentionally undone look.
After washing your hair, plait it in pigtails before you go to bed. When you wake up in the morning you’ll have effortless beach-vibe waves.
