Second-best micro color infusion nyc (no scars)

I have uneven, overplucked, sparse eyebrows and have been reading about microblading as a solution. But I have concerns about scarring, especially since I'd need to get it done multiple times over my life given it only lasts 1-2 years. It looks like there are other techniques that may minimize scarring risk, but it's hard to find objective information. [more inside]

Suppose I never changed my clothes again

A few years ago I bought this Athleta dress from a consignment shop for $11, and it's become one of the most versatile items of clothing I own. It doesn't wrinkle, it still looks (and smells!) good after I've worn it for a week straight in a pinch, and it's washable. I can wear it to work, I can stuff it in my bag when I'm traveling, and it's neutral enough that I can easily dress it up or down. Help me find more clothes like this! [more inside]

Is blow-drying potentially good for hair?

My hair seemed smoother, silkier, less tangly, after being to the hair salon. He did blow-dry my hair, while I normally let it air-dry. Is it the blow-drying that made the difference? In which case, is blow-drying good for hair if it makes it less tangly and so prevents breakage? [more inside]

Dressy sockless odorless man shoes for summer?

I love my Keen Owyhees. They're cool on hot days and I can throw them in the wash when they inevitably get odorous. I'm looking for something dressier, that can be worn without socks, that can either resist foot odor or are machine washable.

In the summer I like to wear alpargatas/espadrilles, but the Tom's canvas alpargatas I bought in late-May have already begun to fall apart. Any recommendations for sturdy, well-constructed espadrilles/alpargatas that won't fall apart? (note: not boat shoes) [more inside]

Let's Talk About Nail Extensions!

For reasons, I want to get nail extensions for my short bendy nails. I have tiny nailbeds, if that matters -- every single manicurist ever likes to comment on them. I'd like to have short squoval nails, probably without fancy patterns or anything inlaid -- part of the point is to prevent some habitual fidgeting. But I've never done this before, so I need some guidance... [more inside]

Searching for cotton bras with pockets for inserts

I want to find some cotton bras which have room for inserts. Most cotton bras are unlined, and if I'm in a formal situation and choosing to suffer through the rare miserable discomfort of a bra to begin with, I'd like to have full coverage, and want to be able to slip in those thin silicone things which solve the problem well.

Endless split ends - how to remove far-up ones while retaining length?

I just had a haircut - from a hairdresser who'd received very good reviews, the director of the hair salon. (I hadn't had a haircut for about six months beforehand.) My hair is still full of split ends, though, even just after this haircut with a hairdresser who should be objectively pretty good. Some are pretty far up, maybe at shoulder height. I think I treat my hair pretty well - no heat, wash roughly every third day. So... what should I do: a) to get rid of the split ends I currently have. Can I somehow preserve the length while getting rid of split ends? Is this a thing a hairdresser can do for me - presumably sit there for ages cutting individual hairs?? Or do I just have to chop it all off? (I have heard of a thing called a "split-ender" - I don't know if this is any good in practice.) b) especially if I do have to chop it all off and start again (but even if not!) how do I avoid getting so many split ends?
