SOOTHED BOD, MESSED-UP MANE

Women's Health Australia - - BEAUTY & STYLE -

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.
