A good hairstylist can be a life-changer. He makes the difference between leaving the salon with your head held especially high and slinking out the back in tears and sunglasses. She determines whether you’ll spend the next week flipping your hair around like Cindy Crawford in a shampoo commercial or shame hat–wearing and counting the minutes until it grows out. So when you stop in for your pre-party blowout or end-of-year bang trim, express your gratitude to your mane man (or woman) with something beyond a hefty tip. Here’s to a Crawford-caliber hair year.
