Dry your hair with a t-shirt instead of a towel. Why? Well, because the rough fibers of a towel can roughen up your hair and result in frizz. The perfect hack of all beauty hacks!

Bruises aren’t pretty, especially when they occur on your leg before a big event. Next time one pops up, dab a bit of mouthwash on the area in question and it will lose its purple tinge.

Very often, bobby pins slide out of your hair. To stop them from doing so, simply lay a tissue paper on a table, put the pins on it and spray them with any stiff hold hairspray. This will make them stay on your hair longer and stop them from sliding out every other minute.

13. Makeup Wipes Everywhere
