Why Your Hair Will Never Look As Good As The Commercials

You know that not everything on TV is real. But you’d assume that ads selling a product would show off fairly accurate, achievable results, right? (OK, maybe you wouldn’t, but who knows?) Reports show that over 25 percent of commercials selling beauty items like mascara or shampoo artificially enhanced their models with false lashes or hair extensions in order to sell their wares. Most recently, Cheryl Cole’s L’Oreal advertisements displayed flowing, shiny hair, which later turned out to be extensions. In fact, the next time you marvel at the long, extended lashes in mascara commercials, don’t grab your wallet and run out to the drugstore. Over 58 percent of those gorgeous black eyelashes were actually touched up during post-production — meaning Photoshop is the true beauty product to invest in, not a million different kinds of mascara.
