A: If you don't have time in the morning or access to heat tools, you can still get a great look by washing hair the night before and letting it set in topknots or low buns on the side of your head. Make sure to twist hair away from you face and leave the ends free for a flirty vibe.

A: No matter what tanner you choose, it's good to start it in small sections, sweeping upwards. Also using a tanning mitt will help to ensure you get the product evenly distributed on your skin - and not everywhere else.

A: If you struggle with thinning or brittle hair, Keranique Volume Boost Invisible Dry Shampoo is a great product for you and will perk up lifeless strands later in the day. Simply spray it all over for your desired volume and you can go about your day with fuller, bouncier hair.

A. If you're a woman that finds most fragrances deterring, you're not alone. "We all exist on a sensory spectrum," Dr. Ted Zeff, author of The Highly Sensitive Person's Survival Guide, tells InStyle. "About 20 percent of the population has a very sensitive nervous system. These are the people who feel things more deeply, and that often includes scent. In my research I found many of them struggle with synthetic fragrances." Instead, Dr. Zeff recommends reaching for an essential oil based fragrance, such as Jurlique Essence of Rose Roll On Fragrance Oil, which touts healing and restorative properties. "Consider something like lavender. If you are an HSP [highly sensitive person] and you inhale that, it can calm you down. It's the same with chamomile and rose. These oils all reduce stress."

A. How long your fragrance does - or doesn't - last, can be directly related to its base notes. "Citrus, green, and floral scents are brighter than woodsy ones, but they don't last long," Sue Phillips, president and CEO of Scenterprises and owner of the Scentsorium, an appointment-only, custom-fragrance studio in Tribeca, tells Allure. "If you want a perfume that you won't have to refresh after four hours, look for words like 'spicy' or 'oriental' in the description." But, if you still have your heart set on a fresh and flirty fragrance, make sure to moisturize your skin before applying your perfume, because "fragrance lasts much longer on moisturized skin," adds Phillips. Additionally, try applying your perfume to your pulse points (ankles, knees, in the crooks of your elbows, on your cleavage, and on the nape of your neck) where fragrance tends to last longer.
