Staffer Beauty Snoop: Fashion Director Argy Koutsothanasis

Next up in our Staffer Beauty Snoop series, fashionable and fiery Fashion Director Argy Koutsothanasis spills her tried-and-true tips for looking put-together from head to toe:

Describe your beauty style in three words or less: Hair-obsessed! You can have the best outfit, shoes, bag, etc., but if your hair is stringy, unkempt or worse, if you’re sporting a style from the “Friends” era, you instantly lose your style credibility. The reverse is also true: A killer hair cut with attitude and of-the-moment-style will instantly give your wardrobe a boost. So shop at Target but never skimp on your hair!
What are the three beauty products you can’t live without? Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, Phyto Phytomist Instant Hydrating Conditioner and Bumble & Bumble Does it All Styling Spray.
What’s your beauty routine in the morning? I wash my face with Neutrogena Grapefruit Face Wash, then I lightly swipe my skin with DDF Glycolic Toner and finish off by applying Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream-Night Formula all over my face. I also take Phyto Phytophanere Dietary Supplement for Hair and Nails.
At night?  I  cleanse my face and neck with Triaz Face Cloths.
Post-workout? I run every morning before getting ready for work, so my post-workout routine is my morning routine.
What beauty product or treatment instantly makes you feel good? My weekly mani/pedi.
What’s the best beauty tip you’ve ever received (or thought of yourself)? The best advice I ever got was not to wash my hair everyday. I wash it one to two  times per week, and it’s healthier and stronger than it’s ever been! The funny thing is that it no longer gets oily. Since  I have wavy hair, I just prop it up in a high bun for my morning run and when I let it down, the waves look full and healthy— no blow-dry time required!
