While you're preparing for your Fourth of July plans at the beach, pool, or a good ol' barbecue, we have the perfect way to show off your patriotic colors no matter what you're wearing. Hiroko Fujikawa, owner of MARS the Salon, created the above nail design, and she's giving us her tips for re-creating the sparkling look.
- Prep your nails by filing them to your desired shape and apply a base coat.
- Apply two coats of red polish to your thumb.
- Apply two coats of blue polish to your index and pinky fingers. For added sparkle, use a polish with glitter; we recommend Sephora X The Cosmics in Cold Hearted ($12).
- Apply two coats of white polish to your middle finger.
- Using nail glue, carefully apply silver rhinestones to ring finger. You can also try a silver glitter polish like Essie Set in Stones ($8) for a similar look.
- To create the American flag on your middle finger, use a precision art brush to draw a small box at the lower right corner of the nail. Fill in with blue polish. Next, clean the brush with remover and dip it into silver polish to draw on small stars. Clean the brush again and then dip into red polish to create small horizontal stripes.
- Apply a top coat to all your nails to seal and add shine.

It's Acne Awareness Month, and we know the only thing more frustrating than recurring breakouts is not knowing where they come from. That's why we're getting to the bottom of the problem. Is it stress? Hormones? Or just terribly bad complexion luck? Worry no more. Instead, clear up your mind — and your skin — with this guide to the causes of breakouts. Once you know what's causing acne to flare up, it's easy to develop a plan of attack. Read on to see what culprits could be responsible for your blemishes (and what to do about it).
A trip to the hair salon for a trim or a full-on cut almost always includes a massaging shampoo and conditioning session, but what your stylist probably doesn't do next is actually dry your hair before running scissors through your strands. Such is not the case for stylist Eiji Yamane, who is perfecting the art of the dry haircut at his New York salon, Eiji. He learned the pioneering technique under the late John Sahag, and he explains why the dry-cut is a better option.
"The dry-cut is known for its ability to sculpt, shape, and save time on styling," Yamane explains. He starts off with wet, cleansed hair, and analyzes the client's strands from a wet state to a dry state as he blow-dries the hair. This enables a stylist to better assess texture, movement, and how the hair naturally falls, which makes for a much more customized cut for each individual's needs.
Once the hair has been dried and assessed, Yamane then runs a flat iron through the hair to help seal the ends while cutting. During this process, he comes up with a cutting plan. "Dry-cuts are tapered at the end, so there is a no demarcation or defining line," he explains. "No cut is ever the same and the style only improves while cutting your hair dry." For curly-haired folks, using a flat iron depends on each client's needs.
Yamane has also been educating stylists in Washington, Chicago, and Boston on the dry-cutting technique, and hopes to expand to more cities. Once you do get a dry haircut, Yamane recommends returning after three months for upkeep or one month for clients with shorter hair.
