“Don't wrap your hair up in a towel on the top of your head. It will eliminate your chance for natural volume. A great product can make all the difference, [like] Blow Beauty Bar's signature Pump it Up Volume Mist.” 59 The Circle, East Hampton, 324-8888
“If your hair has waves, it’s a great idea to go for a beachy look. The best way to achieve that is to use a curl-enhancing product, like the Warren Tricomi Curl Amplifier.” 64 Park Pl., East Hampton, 212-262-8899
