    Whether it was that surprise visit from your S.O.'s folks, the impromptu lunch with your boss, or a spontaneous girls night out, you've probably found yourself scrambling to get in for an emergency polish change or blowdry-style on more than one occasion. And, once upon a time, that meant you had to jump on the phone and call your virtual Rolodex of resources, hoping to get a last-minute appointment. But, times have changed, thanks to Coco Meers, the gorgeous face behind PrettyQuick.

    The online booking portal connects its users with editor-approved salons and spas to help make securing an appointment, well, easy! No more calling numerous businesses, no more long wait times, and no more back-and-forth with a receptionist. So, because Meers has her well-manicured finger on the pulse of all things beauty, it seemed logical to get the 411 on her own routine. From her DIY treatment for dry cuticles to her trick for keeping fine locks full of sexy volume, we think you'll agree, this go-getter has some pretty awesome advice.
