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.

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.

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.

A: Maintaining healthy, youthful skin on the body depends on much of the same advice. Daily cleansing and moisturizing along with weekly exfoliation and smart sun defense are essential steps toward slowing the signs of aging on the body. Also, look for all-over formulas that contain proven anti-aging ingredients including retinol and green tea.

A: Slowly but surely, there’s a growing market of anti-aging skincare brands just for men. To tackle crow’s feet, Anthony Logistics Anti Aging Vitamin A Treatment contains a powerful dose of age-fighting vitamin A to bring fast and visible results.
