Couple of quick beauty tips

I Overplucked My Eyebrows. What Can I Do?

The worst thing one can do is overpluck. Well, not the worst. But be careful because that hair won’t always grow back. As for your bare spots, unfortunately you’re going to have to wait for the hair to grow back in.

But there is a quick fix, however.

You can fill in the spaces with a brow powder or pencil. It’s best to use light, feathery strokes to create a realistic look, rather then drawing a line. Set the color with brow gel.

How Much Should I Tip When I Get My Haircut?

First off, remember that you tip a hairstylist & colorist just as you would a server in a restaurant: If the service is excellent, then you tip 20%, if the service is good 15% and so on.

But what if there are several different people involved from assistants to the shampooer? It’s standard to pay $3 to $5 to each individual who shampoos and/or blows out your hair. 

As for other beauty professions — the same rule applies to your manicurist, your aesthetician & anyone who spends time making you look beautiful (at a cost). They get 15-20 percent as well.

Got Just a Few Stray Gray Strands?

Cover them with hair mascara

Have a few gray strands that stand out? Rather than dying your entire head, you have the option of using hair mascara. Check out your local drugstore for different brands or if you want to go posh, a good bestseller bet is Christian Dior’s Mascara Flash for Hair. 

Not interested in purchasing a product? You can mask gray strands with a basic hair dye. Match the color of your hair, then apply with a clean mascara wand (throw out the cheap & messy brush that comes with the kit). You can purchase mascara wands at drugstores.
