Such a Tease
Two blast-from-the-past beauty products are all the rage
-Lois Joy Johnson
At the Golden Globes, Drew Barrymore showed up with a messy bouffant that was curled, teased and fluffed up like a blonde cloud. Clearly she was going for a 60’s Angie Dickinson effect, and it worked. Although most media reports were negative regarding Drew’s ‘do, it was a refreshing change from the expected nighttime up-dos. Change is in the air for your hair, too, with these two new-again products:
Hairspray. It provides an anti-humidity shield, adds light styling hold, and thickens while sidestepping the wet-to-dry steps of mousses and gels. Look for my favorites: Ken Paves Healthy Hair Shaping Finishing Spray ($24 beauty.com ), John Frieda Luxurious Volume Thickening Hairspray ($6.99 drugstores).
Dry shampoo. These formulas are designed to absorb excess oils from the scalp and roots, provide a fresh scent and allow you to skip shampoos for two or three days–a great help to dehydrated color-treated and highlighted hair. Welcome back the original–Psssssst Instant Spray Shampoo ($5.99 drugstores). Fancier versions (with fresh modern scents and a lighter texture) like Oscar Blondi Pronto Dry Shampoo Spray ( $21 sephora.com ), Klorane Dry Shampoo ($13.99 amazon.com) and Ojon Rub-Out Dry Cleanser ($24 sephora.com) are adding airy sexy volume to bobs. To use: Just Velcro roller sections for a set, spritz lightly, blast with a blow-dryer for a second, unroll and shake your head.
