Insta hair: The looks you need to try ASAP
Summer always used to equal lazy hair days, but since we spent spring stuck in "been there/didn't brush that"—land, we're *more* than ready to switch it up. Sure, the basic rules still apply (summer styles need to be fast, easy and sweatproof) but it's time to level up.
Should you send that DM? We overanalyzed it so you don't have to

Do you need to clean up your act?
Coronavirus made us all, shall we say *super* aware of germs. Covering our sneezes and washing our hands is now de rigueur...but what about the rest of your (sometimes-could-be-cleaner) habits? We turned to the experts to give us the deets on some of the grossest moves.
