At this point, it feels like if you’ve read one article of beauty tips, you’ve read ’em all. Of course, it’s for a reason—tried-and-true hacks like using a bobby pin for eyeliner and swatting down frizz with a dryer sheet do work—but they don’t exactly leave us excited nor do they inspire to go out there and make things easier.
So we went back to the drawing board, and grilled the Glamour editors we see looking consistently fabulous to learn just how they do it. The words “Tell us your secrets” may have been used (it wasn’t overtly aggressive, but we got answers). Here, we’ve stockpiled the tips that will actually change your beauty routine for the better, and that you haven’t read 200 times before.
The Best Hair Tips

“I picked up this trick from Harry Josh, the stylist behind Gisele’s iconic waves, years ago and haven’t looked back. My hair is flat and fine and rarely holds a bend, but doing this makes it air-dry into an easy wave with just the right amount of movement—it doesn’t even need any product to stay. It’s saved me on countless mornings when I run out of time to do my hair.” —Lindsay Schallon, senior digital beauty editor
