Q.1 I have tried blowdrying my wavy hair ever so often during this lockdown but just cannot get it right. I possess a good professional hair dryer but don’t know where I am going wrong?
Make four neat sections from ear to ear and from the centre of the forehead to the nape of the neck and clip each section. Release one section at a time and blow dry the hair using a medium to large round brush, pulling the hair taut and rolling the brush as you go down to make it straight and adding volume as well. Aim the nozzle of the dryer on the brush pointing downwards to flatten the hair cuticle, giving the hair sheen and smoothness. Dry your hair to the opposite side of where you want the volume and allow no moisture to remain in the hair to make your tresses look silky and beautiful.
Q.2 I have rather pretty nails but the skin around my finger nails is very dark which ruins the entire manicured effect of my hands. Is there anything I can do to get rid of this?
Another option is – Take one teaspoon of sugar, squeeze the juice of one lemon into it. Mix it and massage on the dark areas around the finger nails for two minutes. This will give a lightening effect to the skin. For best results you need to do this treatment daily and you will soon notice a difference as the dark area slowly recedes and blends into the rest of the skin.
Q.3 I am 18 years old and plan to shape my eyebrows for the first time at a beauty salon. Can you suggest any particular shape I should try for the first time?
Once you get used to your regular trips to the salon for threading and are comfortable with the shape of your eyebrows you can go ahead and be more adventurous with your looks keeping in mind that thin, high arched, eyebrows give a harsh look and are quite passe, whereas the natural look is very much in vogue, but of course at the end its a very personal choice and the decision to understand which shape of eyebrows makes you feel and look the best.
