I was three hours inВ on a flight from New York to Paris (I had the opportunity to fly on La Compagnie, a French airline that offers business class-type seats to the entire plane), and I realized I was at a loss for how to care for my skin. Sure, by now I know flying can be quite drying and therefore I should use hydrating products.
First things first: forget the crunchy, '80s-hair connotations you have about mousse.

Bleach-blond hair looks amazing,В but it's a high-maintenance look that can cause severeВ damage to your strands, especially for brunettes. So what's a brown-haired girl to do?
Here at Byrdie HQ, our health-mental, sexual, reproductive, and the like-is always top of mind.

Some of us want to look scary, some of us want to look ethereal, and perhaps some of us just want to look cute AF. Is that too much to ask? However, with the amazing influx of Halloween makeup inspiration these days via Instagram and YouTube, it can be easy to feel like our costume has to be intensely over the top in order to be memorable-veering aggressively sultry or caricature-esqueВ in impact.
