Asbury Park, New Jersey, is known for its low-key beaches, flourishing art scene, and legendary rock and roll roots. (Ever heard of Bruce Springsteen?) It's also home to some of the Jersey Shore's coolest women, who have edgy style and even edgier personalities. Here, the coolest Jersey girls we know share their coveted hair, makeup, and skincare secrets, plus the products they use to get the looks they love the most.
