3-Minute Read: You Can Now Buy the World's Best Blow-Dryer at Target
Welcome to 3-Minute Read, your mid-week rundown of everything we're talking about at Byrdie HQ. Every Wednesday, we'll get you up to date on the beauty news you need to know—in just three minutes.
1. Your hair could seriously benefit from a Target run.
Only because the beauty world's most beloved blow-dryer, Harry Josh's Pro Dryer, will be available at Target starting on November 6 (October 23 online!) for $250. But scoop it up sooner rather than later—it'll only be sold there through the holiday season. (In the meantime, you can find it on dermstore.com for $300.)
2. What happens after you're a world-class ballerina?
As one of the most talked-about principals for the New York City Ballet and then The Royal Ballet in London, Alexandra Ansanelli was on the cusp of a long and highly celebrated career. In a fascinating profile with Elle.com, she explains why she walked away.
3. Sad truth: It's time to start thinking about holiday weight gain.
That's because it tends to start in October, according to a new study. (Thanks, Halloween.) The research also showed that it takes an average of five months to return to your normal weight—but the good news is that it's possible to indulge in your favorite seasonal treats without going overboard.
4. Get ready to duke it out, Los Angeles (and Brooklyn!).
New York boxing studio Shadowbox already attracts names like Gisele Bündchen and Adriana Lima to its Manhattan flagship. But come November, Brooklyn residents won't need to cross the East River to practice their right hook, since the company will be opening the doors to a second location in Dumbo. And the good news gets even better: L.A. folks will get a studio of their own sometime next summer.
5. Do you really need toothpaste?
To be clear, you need something to keep those pearly whites, well, pearly white. But if the chemicals in generic toothpaste have made you take pause, you might want to consider one of these natural alternatives.
