In the New Year, we’ve already experienced the good…and the very bad. We learned that the bromance between President Obama and VP Joe Biden is stronger than the majority of American marriages…and Trump likes his showers like his towers: golden. We’ve also experienced a wave of hair care innovations right out of the gate, including a brush from Kérastase dubbed the “Hair Coach.” While it’s not exactly out yet (release is scheduled for mid-2017), the tool, developed in tandem with tech company Withings, boasts a microphone that can detect everything from frizz to split-ends via “auditory data” that is analyzed by an algorithm, explained Allure.com. An accelerometer and gyroscope (i.e., fancy tech things we don’t understand) located in the handle supposedly help you brush your hair better and kick bad habits like ripping through tangles. In short, this $200 brush does everything…except brush your hair for you.
Ouai’s highly anticipated Dry Shampoo Foam dropped today to the delight of dirty girls everywhere (Brie Larson, we’re looking at you). Hairstylist Jen Atkin says the cloud-like foam that you massage into oily roots is equivalent to a dry cleaner for greasy strands. And after you’ve washed up without getting wet, dress up your refreshed ponytail or bun with a pearl-adorned bobble or pin from Atkin’s latest collab with Chloe + Isabel.
