I find that taking a few extra moments in the morning to perfect your coiffure can make all the difference. Not just because people will perceive you as more polished or put together, but because you'll feel more confident when your hair's shiny, smooth and healthy looking. A confident woman can conquer pretty much anything, whether she's meeting with the boss, battling it out with a hoard of shoppers in the grocery store or hoping to gain a new client.
And when it comes to date night (whether you're with the girls or a good looking love interest), a gorgeous mane also comes it handy. I like to have various hair tools at my disposal. And while I tend to head straight for the curling iron every time, I will attest that it's important to have a few other tools in your haircare arsenal as well. I contend that the following four are must-haves for every woman.
Pictured at top left is NuMe's Couture Flat Iron ($155), "a 1 1/3 inch iron with tourmaline-infused plates and variable temperature." It features a dynamic alignment system that ensures direct contact between your hair and the floating plates, providing evenly distributed far infrared heat and superior, frizz-free results and uses 600% more negative ion technology." I can tell you from personal experience -- this product is amazing. I have very thick, frizz-prone hair and it straightens my stubborn locks in under 10 minutes.
