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

The fantastic architecture, traditional flamenco dancing, and daily four-hour "siesta" are just pieces of the mosaic that makes up the magical culture of Spain. It focuses on treasuring the free time, living in the moment, drinking wine with family, peers and friends, and living life to the fullest. This beautiful country, with terrain that ranges from the wild Mediterranean beaches of the Costa Brava to the soaring plateaus of the Apennine mountain range, is highly conducive to the pursuit of a quality life.

Beauty Tip: Warm Water

A typical Spanish health custom is to wake up and drink warm water first thing in the morning. This helps break down food in the system and promotes healthy digestion. It also raises the body temperature, which aids in detoxification, and helps increase the elasticity of skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.

Hairstyle: Side Braid

Many Spanish women are blessed with long, thick strands that can flow all the way to their backs if allowed to grow free. So in the warm weather, a side braid helps them keep cool from the heat—and stylish with a cool vibe. This style is common in Madrid, where the temperature regularly reaches over 100 degrees fahrenheit.

Fun Facts:

Tourists spend 143 million euros a year in Ibiza.

The national anthem of Spain has no words.

43% of the world's olive oil production is in Spain.
