No one wants to get plump, but your hair can get as fat as it wants.
New York coif-genius Sally Hershberger is known for creating new looks for her celebrity clients (Meg Ryan’s signature shag, not her lips) and has come out with a new line of products to address her client’s most common complaint: flat, lifeless hair. We tested the Sally Hershberger Plump Up super collagen thickening mist that lifts hair at the root with soft volume, even on fine hair.
So if you can’t fly in for one of her $600 cuts, this will have to do. —SB

Imagine a line of 100 per cent organic skincare, made in France with water from Haute Provence (we’ve always wanted to write that) and potent ingredients like lavender, rosemary and cold-pressed olive oil that repair your cells while you sleep.
Vancouver-based Bioethique Organic is just that—and more. Brushed silver packaging holds genius summer products like leave-in hair conditioning mist ($32) with Mallow for strength.
But the real question is: Will it make us look like Carla Bruni?
If so, we’re sold!

You have a hot date in 24 hours, your roots are down to your ears, and your colourist is in Mexico.
Yup, it’s a typical Wednesday.
But before you decide that a French beret is your new signature look, consider this great hair-colour pen a subscriber tipped us off to.
Just squeeze The Mixer, paint out your roots, wait for 30 minutes, rinse and you’re ready (with super-natural results, even for blondes says our tester).
Now what are you going to do with the other 23 1/2 hours? Pick out your outfit of course.
The Mixer comes in six shades, US$26 each. Shop online at http://www.colour-revolution.com/shop-online-for-her.php
