SOOTHED BOD, MESSED-UP MANE
A great massage turns muscles to mush... and hair into Medusa-like masses. Here are three fast fixes, courtesy of hairstylist Shannon Stish
OPTION 1 Hands off
Before the service starts, tell your massage therapist or facialist you’d like your hair untouched. Then pull your hair into a high bun or topknot and secure with bobby pins so it’s out of the way and won’t get creased.
OPTION 2 Dry massage
If you want the scalp rub but don’t have the time to shower and blow-dry after, ask your massage therapist to do any head work sans oil. Afterwards, make the most of your new-found texture by putting it up in a tousled chignon.
OPTION 3 Oils and all
Don’t reach for dry shampoo; your hair could end up looking more grimy. (It can handle a few days’ worth of sebum, not an oil spill.) Instead brush hair into a smooth ponytail or low bun – both look quite chic slightly slick.
