The Insider Old School Beauty Tips With Shaun Surething for Seagull Hair Salon

12 old-school beauty tricks that still work today


Shaun Surething, lead stylist of Seagull Hair Salon shares some old school beauty tips with The Insider. From wrapping your hair in toilet paper to putting pumpkin on acne prone skin, Shaun is a wealth of beauty information… The stuff they teach you before beauty school. Some excerpts follow.


Brushing your hair with a boar bristle brush at night eliminates frizz and sets the tone for a great hair day

Shaun Surething, lead stylist and co-owner of Seagull Hair Salon in NYC is a devout follower of this pre-beauty school tip:

“Though an outdated and seemingly silly idea, brushing your hair at night before you go to bed with a natural-bristle brush is totally a real thing. It helps distribute the natural oils that your scalp generates during the day, which is the most effective and organic way to condition hair and smooth the cuticles before sleep; this results in shiny and healthy hair when you wake up. The Mason Pearson brush, created in 1885 is the best and the time tried-and-true brush, but there are many more affordable options on the market today.”

Satin pillowcases can also eliminate frizz

Surething told INSIDER, “satin pillowcases allow the hair to glide freely as you toss and turn in the night. Other fibers will snag the hair, resulting in frizzy locks and split ends that are damaging and more difficult to manage the next morning.”
