You Can Now Feng Shui Your Hair

We could all use a little more Zen in our lives — especially when it comes to our beauty routines. So, when we spotted an essay on hair feng shui over on Elle.com, we were instantly intrigued — and more than a little skeptical. Could our energy really affect our haircuts?

Apparently, it works like this: Celebrity stylist Billy Yamaguchi (who works with the manes of Jennifer Aniston, Charlize Theron, and Lady Gaga) identifies your hair energy through a series of questions. Then, using your energies as a guide, he customizes a haircut to match. Maridel Reyes, who went through the process and wrote about it for the site, claims that while Yamaguchi gets you to hair perfection, he also gives suggestions for how to eat, what jewelry to wear, and how to meditate all based on your specific energies. He also finishes the haircut with a massage as an added bonus.
But, was it the best haircut of Maridel's life? Head over to Elle.com to read her full report. You may want to feng shui your entire life after you do. (Elle.com)
