12 hair tips that are GUARANTEED to make your life easier | The Beauty Gypsy | Scoop.it
Super-simple ways to make doing your hair incredibly easy!

Because hair can be complicated. Which is why I’ve culled through the season’s fashion week diaries and am giving you only those hair hacks that are feasible for normal mortals. And these are seriously pretty easy… in fact, you’ll pretty soon be wondering how you lived without them at all. I am!

It’s a new column that I’m starting with this edition… would love to know your thoughts!
