Let’s be real: Getting up in the morning can be a total bummer. All of us who aren’t morning people are always looking for ways to cut corners in our beauty routines when we rise, but bad morning habits can ruin your whole day. Look, we get it. It’s early, you’re groggy, and who really wants to leave a comfy bed? No one. All of this aside, though, when your morning is off to a good start, it typically means your day will follow suit.
As a beauty editor, part of my job is to be a guinea pig. From testing 10 different lipsticks in a day to diving into the latest juice cleanse, I’ll try anything once. Something that really takes some grinning and bearing, though? Going no poo for 30 days. The “no poo” trend has been around forever, and when you hear about the women who’ve sworn off shampoo for years, it’s impossible not to wonder why it’s such a beloved way of living for those who choose to go there.
Beauty time is definitely a ritual that we love to luxuriate in, but let’s be real, we’ll take all the hair tips and tricks we can get if it means simplifying our morning routine. That doesn’t mean cutting corners, necessarily, but simply learning the worthwhile tricks that really work. We’ve collected a ton of hair ideas through our many beauty travels, and we’ve rounded up some of our favorites here. Want subtle highlights for the summer but don’t want to empty your wallet?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
