Beat the Frizz
Colleen Conroy has some great hair tips as we enter client season, especially for those of us who fight the frizz when it gets a little humid out.
“Living in Vancouver, the land of wind and rain, figuring out how to wear your hair when the weather isn’t quite so nice is a common challenge. Luckily there are some great options out there.
One of the easiest, and sometimes most put together look, is the classic topknot. It gets the hair right off the face (take that, wind!) and even if it gets a bit wet, it just looks sleeker (in your face, rain!). I always surprise myself when I wear this look. It is my I’m-late-for-work-and-I-just-don’t-have-time-for-my-hair look. Yet whenever I wear it, I get mega compliments.”
