    Find out all the tips you can. I learned this one from my mum - for a voluminous conditioner, mix 2 eggs with milk until frothy, add 2 teaspoons of mayo (yes, mayonnaise) and some honey to cover up the smell and give a healthy glow! Rinse with cold-ish water and towel dry. (only use every 2 weeks max) Here's some more tips...

    Don't tell people how to style their hair when your hairs a tip yourself! People won't trust you, same for all these rules so rinse, lather and repeat! Don't think your hair is the best either, but still have confidence.

    Blonde doesn't suit everyone so don't dye it that color because you think it's sexy. My opinion is to keep it natural but maybe add highlights. They’re in the know right now! Brunettes and redheads look also fabulous too!

    Eyebrows. Please get them waxed and pluck them every 3-7 days, it doesn't hurt. You kinda get used to it after the first wax! Same as plucking! Only the first time hurts.

Method 2

    Nail polish can damage your nails so get pedicures as much as possible. French Manicures are very popular.
    • =Acne victims: do not use Clearasil as it gives you more spots. Use home made things like vinegar, (add water to about 60% and 40% vinegar) or toothpaste (gets rid of the redness, do not be tempted to eat (lol) leave on all night)

    If you're going to use nail varnish (what you should do all the time) then put on some nail voluminous first.(you can get this from any so it doesn't harm those cuticles.

    Don't wear fake nails. It seriously ruins your nails and then you won't be able to wash your hair properly. It's confusing but you have to trust me, it might look nice but it has it's dark-side too!

Method 3
Teeth

    Boys don’t want to kiss a girl with a piece of spinach in your mouth so carry around some dental floss and a small bottle of mouthwash with you wherever you go. You never know when you're gonna need it!

    Bad teeth? Don't use strips and this is not the time for home-made stuff. Use some great whitening toothpaste like Colgate Weekly Clean! It will cost loads but it's so worth it!

    Brush after meals if possible and never go without minty fresh teeth in your mouth.

    Don't swear. It's horrible and unattractive. It makes you look like a loudmouth freak. Try using different words instead of swears.
