3-Minute Read: This Is the Hairstyle All the Olympians Are Wearing
Welcome to 3-Minute Read, your midweek rundown of everything we're talking about at Byrdie HQ. Every Thursday, we'll get you up to date on the beauty news you need to know—in just three minutes.
1. We're sensing an Olympic hair trend…
We've spotted the braided ponytail in Rio on the volleyball courts, in the diving pool, on the soccer field and more. Aside from the obvious curb appeal, you know that if it's good enough for world class athletes, it'll probably also withstand your favourite workout. (Allure has the deets on how to make it burpee-proof.)
2. This is what a celeb trainer actually eats in a day.
3. Do those fancy at-home LED devices *actually* improve your skin?
InStyle investigates—and stay tuned for our own trials with some of the best anti-ageing gadgets on the market, coming later this month.
4. Dermatologists agree…
These are the best shampoos for an itchy, flaky scalp. (We'd like to nominate this one as well.)
5. Hold up: We should be applying deodorant at night?
Apparently so, if we'd like it to be as effective as possible. Check out four other deodorant-related myths here.
