Q MY

hair­styl­ist and colourist work at dif­fer­ent sa­lons. Who should I book first? It de­pends. “If you’re chop­ping ma­jor inches or get­ting new bangs or lay­ers, see your stylist first,” says Den­nise Joaquim, a colourist at Louis Li­cari, New York. That way, your colourist can play up the shape (high­lights, for in­stance, can make lay­ers pop). If you’re just get­ting a trim, the or­der is up to you since both pros will be fol­low­ing their usual game­plan. Q

MY friend says blowdry­ing with a metal brush can burn my hair. True? Yes, says Suave stylist Jenny Cho, who sug­gests a ce­ramic brush. “It dis­perses heat across the brush, , pre­vent­ing hot spots,” ,” says Cho. We like brushes from Divo o (left), as they dis­perse heat throughout ut, and pre­vent strand nds from frying.

Q

MY pits look dark. How can I feel sex­ier sleeve­less? If your hair is the is­sue, re­move it from the root by wax­ing or hav­ing laser hair re­moval, says NYC derm Michele Green. The skin it­self can also darken due to fric­tion from cloth­ing and ra­zors. “The in­flam­ma­tion stim­u­lates pig­ment cells,” says Dr Green. Hy­dro­cor­thy­dro­cor­ti­sone, used twice daily for a month, will help, as will Nivea Deodor­ant­deod (left), made with Licorice ex­tracts, which is an­ti­in­flam­ma­tory. Q how

can I rock a trendy orange lip so I don’t freak out my guy? “Opt for a red-orange gloss in­stead of a true-orange lip­stick,” says Smash­box make-up artist Lori Tay­lor. Orange looks less shock­ing when bal­anced with red pig­ments. Plus, the sheer­ness of a gloss (ver­sus the opac­ity of a lip­stick) of­fers a more kiss­able touch of colour.
