I don’t have to tell you this: hairspray belongs on your hair – not your face!
Here is the scene: you just finished applying your makeup and have styled your hair. All that is left is a quick shpritz of hairspray to ensure your style lasts the evening and you are ready to leave.
So… you spray your hair and once again get spray and gunk on your face, especially on your eye lashes and cheeks. You have no time to redo your makeup and if you “retouch it” – you will just make it worse!
What should you do? Reach for your FAN! Yes a fan, like the kind you can buy at the costume counter for Purim.
Hold the fan, in front of your face, as close to your hairline as possible, carefully angle it so you cover your lashes but don’t crush them or rub your makeup. Now you can spray your hair safely.
It would be even better of you could get someone else to spray your hair while you hold the fan!
Remember to pick up a few simple fans (ones without cut out designs) before Purim or at costume stores and store them near your hairspray. Your makeup will thank you!
