You know what they say: sh*t happens. Well, you know what we say? “Forget” that. Just because something throws a wrench in your plans (or even worse, your look), doesn’t mean you have to just sit back and take it. Better option: fight back, no matter what.
So what’s a girl to do when she’s facing a major hair, skin or clothing disaster? Simple. Turn to one of these beauty remedies we found. Armed with this info you’ll be able to tackle any zit, broken heel or horrible haircut that comes your way (not to mention tons more mishaps).
Broken bra strap at the club? Fixed.
Tried to cut your own bangs and failed? On it.
Notice a bruised knee as you’re putting on your mini-skirt? Piece of cake.
Basically, any thing that could go wrong (and, let’s face it, has gone wrong to us at some point) is totally fixable and we’ve got the fixes. Now, some of it has to do with being ready for an emergency (as in, back your purse with the essentials, even if it’s a too-small-for-a-credit-card clutch), and some of it is just having the smarts to know what to do (which you’ll learn here, natch). Put the two together and you’ll be more prepared than a Boy Scout with a vest full of patches (a.k.a. very).
So what are you waiting for? Read on to see what you should do for all your hair, skin and clothing emergencies — and check out celebrities who’ve been in the same messes, like Cameron Diaz, Amy Winehouse, Christina Aguilera, Drew Barrymore, Eva Mendes, Hilary Duff, Jessica Simpson, Kate Hudson, Ashlee Simpson, Jessica Lowndes, Ke$ha, Lindsay Lohan, Rihanna, Rosario Dawson and Selena Gomez.
Not only will you never have an “oh sh*!” moment again, but your friends and that random chick crying in the bathroom will be psyched that you’ve got major know-how.
