Tamy Glauser Has No Hair, No Problems

The androgynous model shares her beauty secrets.


Tamy Glauser, who takes a gender bending role in W‘s September issue, is best known for her striking features and shaved head. Here, the androgynous Swiss model shares her favorite products and beauty secrets. Your look in three words: Relaxed, clean, cool. Five-minute routine: I splash my face with cold water, then brush my teeth. I use Embryolisse to moisturize. Then a bit of MAC eye shadow for my eyebrows to close the gaps and brush them. One last look, fix the hair, and off I go.

Never leave the house without: My jewelry, the book I’m reading, and my eyebrow brush.

Beauty from the inside out: I go for walks in the park or the forest, if possible. I love trees they relax me. When I’m centered I feel the most beautiful in my skin.

Exercise regime: If I go to the gym, I do 30 minutes of cardio to warm up. Then some really light weight lifting for different body parts. After that I swim a round or go straight to the sauna. But yeah… it’s been a minute.
