Explore the world and learn secrets for beautiful hair! This week, Madison Reed visits Denmark to bring you hair care secrets, fashion-forward trends, and fascinating facts.

Also known as "the happiest place on earth," this small country with a big heart is well-known for its socialist government, a world-renowned food and culture, and providing incredible benefits for its citizens. The Danish concept of "hygge" comes from a word meaning well-being, and translates as enjoying the good things in life with good people. It's instilled in the Danish at a very early age, and is an important part of the national ethos.

Beauty Tip: Staying Natural

Danish women often focus on having a nutritious diet and living a balanced life. The Danish are also fans of aging naturally, and consider it a normal part of life, wearing their wrinkles and sun spots gracefully as they age. The pressure for women to prevent aging and stay a certain shape is less prominent here.

Hairstyle: The Heavy Bang

Women in Nordic countries often have fine hair, and a good way to make it appear thicker and more voluminous is to get their hair cut in bangs. This subtle trick goes a long way with low-maintenance style and a haute look. Make it sleek with styling products that emphasize a smooth shine. Another volumizing strategy is to create messy waves with a texturizing spray to give a boost of thickness.

Fun Facts:

  • Denmark is considered the most "least corrupt" country in the world.
  • The United Nations World Happiness Report deems Denmark as the happiest country in the world.
  • Danes are crazy about their licorice—in fact, they love it so much that they have a festival dedicated to it!
  • It rains every other day in Denmark.
