"Capes are huge this season; my favorite is this heavenly navy cashmere one that I bought. The problem is, I have to pull it over my head to get it on and off, which ends up creating a big hair mess," explains celeb stylist Annie Jagger - whose clients include Enrique Iglesias, Ashlee & Jessica Simpson, Emmy Rossum, Jamie Foxx and Eva Longoria - the first official spokesperson for Static Guard. "So I tried turning the cape inside out and spraying it with Static Guard, and it worked wonders. I no longer had a static hair disaster and my blouse was still in place when I took off my cape."
Other clever Static Guard tips from Annie:
TIP #2 Try it on lint & pet hair-magnets like that dark wool vintage cape you just scored. "My favorite velvet tuxedo jacket is a staple in my wardrobe…although, it attracts lint and pet hair like no other piece of clothing I have ever owned," says Jagger. "If I spray Static Guard on my jacket before using my lint brush everything comes off so much faster!"
TIP #3 After flat-ironing your hair, spray some on your brush & then run it through your tresses for an end to annoying fly aways. "If you really want to get into the 80's trend try a fun but subtle asymmetrical hair cut."
TIP #4 Layer tights to get that opaque rich black that a single pair won't provide, but spray both pairs with Static Guard first & watch them slide right on (ditto when layering a sequined jumper or tank over another piece).
TIP #5 If you're a crafty sort & the snow in your charming holiday village motif is sticking to you instead of the rooftops, put the pesky snow in a paper bag & dose with Static Guard. Shake, let dry, and watch it behave. Also, when you're decorating the tree, spritzing it first will keep the tinsel from clinging.
