FAQs

Q: I want to brighten up my look for fall, but I don’t want to make a drastic change. Any ideas for subtle yet noticeable ways to switch up my hair?

A: Try the “less is more” effect of highlights. Focus on adding highlights around your face and at the crown of your head to draw attention to your features, rather than going for the dramatic shift of a different hair color. Just make sure to choose golden shades rather than ashy or beige tones, to provide a flattering contrast to paler skin during the cooler weather months.

Q: I had a busy summer and neglected my hair care routine, and now I’m finding that my hair is flat and won’t hold a style. What does this mean, and how can I get my hair back in shape?

A: It’s likely your hair is super dehydrated from summer factors like sun, heat, chlorine and saltwater. To help restore moisture, avoid products that will further dry out your hair, including gels made with alcohol and any maximum-hold hairsprays. Use a weekly deep conditioning treatment to repair sun damage, such as Phyto Phytokarite Deep Nourishing Brilliance Mask, or try a professional moisturizing treatment at a salon for instant gratification. Want a longer-term solution? Try beefing up your diet with omega-3s and B vitamins to impart strength, shine and body to your strands. A small serving of these good fats in the form of nuts, seeds, salmon and tuna can go a long way in nourishing your hair.

Q: I didn’t use a blow-dryer all summer, and I loved my natural, air-dried waves. Now the mornings are too cool to leave the house with damp hair. How can I keep the waves without the frizz?

A: New York City hairstylist and salon owner Ted Gibson tells Marie Claire that with the right drying technique, you can emulate the natural waves of summertime. Start by twisting 1- to 1.5-inch sections of damp hair and misting them with a styling spray like Alterna BAMBOO Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Spray. Let them fall, then repeat the process all over your head, alternating the directions of your twists, and use a diffuser to blow-dry the sections. Avoid frizz by resisting the urge to scrunch your hair. Want a lower-maintenance option? Spray damp hair with a volumizing spray, pin it into a coiled topknot and go to sleep. In the morning, remove the pins for effortless waves.

Q: I’m six months pregnant and have suddenly developed cystic acne. A friend recommended a Clarisonic – will this help the breakouts? Are there other treatments options that are safe for pregnancy?

A: The Clarisonic Mia 2 Acne Clarifying Collection is a great place to start. Developed for acne-prone skin, the Mia comes with a special brush head and a salicylic acid based cleaner to gently exfoliate without over-drying or irritating skin. Follow with SkinCeuticals Blemish and Age Defense Serum, which both treats acne and combats hyperpigmentation, which can be a problem during pregnancy.
