So vermeidest du Tränen nach dem nächsten Friseurtermin

Du hast bestimmt schon einmal einen Friseursalon mit einem unguten Gefühl verlassen. Wahrscheinlich musstest du dich zusammenreißen, um die Fassung zu bewahren, um dann am Ende die Tür deines Autos voller Wut zuzuschlagen, einen frustrierten Seufzer rauszulassen oder sogar eine Träne zu vergießen, sobald du wieder alleine warst. Einen Haarschnitt zu bereuen, ist meiner Erfahrung nach in vielerlei Hinsicht unangenehm. Außerdem ist dieser Schmerz selbst auferlegt: „Du wolltest ja schließl...

I had plenty of time to work one cheek at a time, but the product becomes more transfer-resistant once it s...

How do you test a perfume to decide if you like it?

If the composition is really not up my alley, I tend to know within three to four hours from the first wear, which I normally spray on my left arm/wrist (I tend to go topside because I spend a lot of my day typing, so the underside of my wrist rubs against my wrist pad).
