Inevitably around this time of year our hair (not to mention our mood) becomes crushed with defeat.
In lieu of a seasonal pact with the straightening iron we’re reviving winter waves with Curl Activator from Alcove ($13.25). Quebec-made, this mild-smelling balm is tough enough to withstand hat-head, separating our boucles while holding them in place without sticky residue.
Now we’re looking a little more girl-with-the-curl, and lot less Ethel Merman. —Marianne Wisenthal

“Having a dull hairstyle is like putting an olive on top of a chocolate sundae,” said Miss Piggy. “It makes your whole appearance unappetizing.”
So when she can’t shell out on regular visits to the coiffure, Miss P. uses these little sponge rollers for bouncy curls that look salon fresh.
Simply roll them into damp hair, vacuum, mumbo or bake a mud pie for an hour and then once the hair is dry unroll the rollers, finger comb, and tease with your favourite styling product.
E Voilà, hair that would make Kermie blush. —Athena Tsavliris
