  • "For hair with more body, flip your head over and gather the hair in the center, then twist the hair into a knot shape. After your sweat session, absorb moisture and create texture by flipping your head over and blowing it dry by scrunching at the roots. My favorite post-workout hair product right now is Limited Edition Essence Absolue Nourishing Fragrance with Oil Pearls: perfume for the hair that light, tames flyaways, and leaves softness and shine." - celebrity hairstylist Kattia Solano, owner, Butterfly Studio Salon

  • "The classes I teach tend to be intense and leave you pretty sweaty, so I carry Neutrogena facial wipes in my gym bag to remove dirt and oil. I also am a huge fan of Aveda's spray toner - it's a nice mist that freshens your skin and immediately minimizes your pores, and it doesn't hurt that it smells great." - Amber Edwards, Group Fitness Manager at Equinox Soho

  • "Cut up a pair of black opaque stockings and turn them into a make-shift headband, then use the remaining pieces to tie your hair into a ponytail. The material doesn’t leave indentation marks and absorbs perspiration at the hairline. Also, my partner Joel Warren recommends using a color-protecting shampoo and conditioner to maintain your color or highlights. Between daily washes and sun exposure, your hair will look washed out quickly without the proper hair care products." - celebrity hairstylist Edward Tricomi, co-owner, Warren-Tricomi Salons

  • "One of the most important things you can do is to remove your makeup prior to working out. When you sweat, you're not exactly careful about how you wipe your face, which means the debris and old makeup sitting on your face gets pressed into your pores. Use an exfoliating pad with a bit of salicylic and/or glycolic acid to remove dirt and residual makeup prior to working out. Just be careful not to use the pads more than two days in a row." - Dr. Neal Schultz, board-certified cosmetic dermatologist and founder of DermTV
