It's easy to rush through our hair and skin care, skipping steps here and there when pressed for time, but you'll find that making the effort to take care of what's literally your crowning glory--your hair--pays off in the end. After all, when you're a professional, part of the way you market yourself to clients, colleagues, and employers every day is the way you look. More personally, looking great is one of the best ways to gain a little bit of confidence.

We all want beautiful, commercial-worthy locks, don't we? Well, FNites, today's your lucky day. Below are the best hair tips we've gotten since Rinse, Lather, Repeat.
