The secret behind Elle Ferguson’s signature waves

PLUS: Are skin gadgets worth the money? & our latest budget-friendly eyeshadow obsession

What does it take to get effortless Elle Ferguson hair? The model, entrepreneur and fashionista spills the secrets behind her waves and shares her tips on how to nail a fake tan at home. She also gets honest about what her new fitness routine actually means to her (spoiler: it’s not just about weight loss).

We also talk skin care gadgets and if they’re worth the money (and if a $15 Kmart dupe works as well as its expensive counterpart), and Sally reveals her latest budget-friendly obsession – a dual-ended eyeshadow stick.
