Dry Shampoo

Nothing, is sexier than a tumble of tousled tresses — with va-va-voom volume and gravity-defying lift (think Bardot, not Bon Jovi). Since only a handful of us are actually born with bombshell manes, top hair care companies have created genius volumizing products to help us fake it.

From lift-inducing inserts to thickening dry shampoos, these 'do-boosting gems will take you from blah to bodacious in seconds!

Dry Shampoo:
Sometimes second- and third-day 'dos are the best! Especially with a translucent dry shampoo — simply spray throughout hair and finger-tousle.

The gentle starches absorb excess oil while adding Cosmo cover girl-style volume to ho-hum hair. Rowr.

Classic Rollers:

To add a tousled sexiness to second-day strands, slap three oversized Velcro rollers at the crown of your head, blast with the blowdryer for 10 seconds, and let cool before removing. Finger-style for a truly man-killing coiffure.

      Late Friday afternoon on Dec. 4, 2014, Stephen Schroeder was waiting to board his packed flight from Philadelphia to Las Vegas for a much anticipated long weekend with his son when his cellphone rang. On the line was an unexpected caller: his doctor, reporting test results sooner than Schroeder had expected. Listening intently, Schroeder was flooded with disbelief as he struggled to comprehend what he was hearing. Using the lip of a trash can as a writing surface, he scribbled notes on the back of his boarding pass, making the doctor spell out each unfamiliar word. Then he sent a terse text to his wife, who was at their home in the Philadelphia suburbs, and got on the plane. Onboard, Schroeder,

With that in mind, it now seems The Tonight Show has suffered a major loss, as showrunner Josh Lieb has officially left the series.
