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

Located in the northern central region of Europe, Germany is a vibrant country known for fairy tale castles, world-class design, and an incredible fast-growing metropolitan culture—as evidenced on the streets of Berlin and other cities. Germany buzzes with cutting-edge craftsmanship, and is known for all things modern in architecture, art, and beauty.

Health and Beauty Tip: Kneipp Treatment
A popular hydrotherapy treatment used by both men and women in Germany, Kneipp therapy is said to strengthen the body’s immune system, refresh tired limbs, and awaken the body. The treatment consists of alternating hot and cold water soaks, showers, or compresses, and is said to widen the arteries, increase blood flow, and improve overall health.

Hairstyle: Voluminous Chignon
A classic hairstyle for anywhere from the park to the ballroom, the voluminous chignon comes in many variations, and emphasizes on one thing: volume. Getting hair to stay up all day can be tricky. The easiest way is to apply a smoothing treatment like Madison Reed Style, then use a sock bun or hair piece to keep everything in and add extra thickness. Make sure the the piece is the same color as your hair, just in case it's visible through the chignon. Here's a tutorial that will have you creating a beautiful chignon in no time.

Fun Facts:
Germany has the largest population in the European Union.

Hamburgers got their name from Hamburg, Germany.

Nearly a third of Germany is powered by renewable energy.
