Annie Duren before Ultra Shiny Hair

Annie Duren, 45

Mane Change: Colorist Bogart wove subtle caramel ribbons into Annie's brown locks to add dimension. Get mirror-like sheen by spritzing shine spray, such as Kerastase Chroma Cristal Shine Perfecting Mist ($37, kerastase-usa.com),on dry hair, and using a gloss treatment weekly. We like Oscar Blandi At Home Salon Glaze ($25, oscarblandi.com).

Annie Duren after Ultra Shiny Hair

Tiny Tweak: For a cut that suits Annie's active life (she rotates cardio workouts on the treadmill with the bike and elliptical machine), stylist Mike Viggue trimmed her dead ends and snipped her hair in cheek-grazing layers that gradually get longer toward the back. He then applied a volumizing mousse, like Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Hydrocream Whip ($21, paulmitchell.com for salons), followed by root-lifting spray. To get the most glossiness as you blow-dry, use around boar-bristle brush and target the dryer nozzle downward as you twist strands, pulling them away from your face.
