There are a few beauty hacks that I feel compelled to share with you all because everyone loves a good shortcut or alternative in life! (Items including “*” notate beauty hacks that I have personally tried. Items including “-“ notate beauty hacks that I haven’t tried but wanted to share.)
-Use paperclips to create a racerback bra.

Instead of purchasing a new bra or throwing on a strapless bra lacking support, use a paperclip to secure your bra straps in place. The straps will create an X shape on your back in order to hide the straps when wearing a racerback tank or other garments that typically expose your bra straps.
- Store bobby pins in an empty Tic Tac Box
Everyone knows bobby pins are like socks. They mysteriously go missing! Save your bobby pins by storing them in an empty Tic Tac box. It’s compact enough to carry in your purse for on-the-go days and small enough to place in the corner of your bathroom counter to save space.
* Dry your hair with a t-shirt to eliminate frizz

Have you ever noticed that when you towel dry your hair, it seems to be a little bit harder to tame? That’s because towels don’t really do a great job of drying your hair when there’s already excess moisture on the towel. Instead, use a t-shirt to dry your hair and tame the frizz.
*Use a men’s razor
Women’s razors are great and all but sometimes when you want a closer, more efficient shave, women’s razors can get a little pricey. Save a few dollars and pick up a pack of men’s razors. Men’s razors are already made to cut thicker hair so using a men’s razor to shave your legs, armpits and bikini line just might be more efficient for you.
*Shave your legs with conditioner

If you’ve run out of shaving cream, don’t worry because that bottle of conditioner can do the same trick, if not better. Conditioner smooths and softens your hair and works the same on your skin. Using conditioner in place of shaving cream will leave your legs extra smooth after a good shave.
*Put hairspray in a body spray bottle
When your bath and body works body spray is running low, don’t toss it just yet! De-assemble your hair spray bottle and pour the hair spray into the body spray bottle. This concoction allows you to utilize your hairspray but with the remaining body spray still in the bottle, your hair will hold its style plus hold a sweet fragrance!
