Healing is a natural part of our body’s regenerative processes; we’re used to stuffy noses clearing up and cuts scabbing over. But, despite all the products that claim otherwise, hair doesn’t heal. Once it’s split, the problem can only get worse, not better. There are two types of products that address damage: those that offer moisture and those that “heal” hair breakage. Oils and moisturizers provide a multitude of benefits, but products that “heal” damage are really just exacerbating the problem. Learn more in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

Today is Halloween! What better way to make your costume perfect than with just the right hairstyle to pair with it. I tend to go with something scary on Halloween because there is really no other day that you can walk around with fake blood drops on your face and get complements. There are plenty of other opportunities to dress up but none to be really scary. So, want to go for the zombie look this year? Click the notes for how to get the hair. –– Kelly Rowe

Beauty takes many forms. For some women, beauty is long hair, soft makeup, floaty dresses. Others like clean lines, short cuts, and leather jackets. My own form of femininity is a blend of the two. I look ridiculous in ruffles and I can’t be bothered with lipstick, but I love heeled booties, antique barrettes and pink nail polish. I can’t pull off leather or tattoos, but I love my strong eyebrows and muscular arms. Most women’s style is a balance between these two extremes, but some lean more towards softness while others prefer a bold expression of femininity. Where do you fall on the spectrum? Does it change day to day? Cara Delevigne (pictured above) looks great on both ends of the spectrum. Click the notes for more celebrities examples. –– Laura Martin
