The Beautiful Royal Wedding

CC by whitneyinchicago

Today is the day that millions of people and all the media have been waiting for. People all over the nation (US) have been awake since the wee hours of the morning to watch the Royal Wedding of Prince Charles, 28, and Kate Middleton, 29. Even if you’re not actively searching for updates, it’s pretty much impossible to avoid hearing about the Royal Wedding today, unless you don’t go online, don’t turn on the TV or radio and pretty much just cut yourself off from all civilization.

With famous style icon guests including Victoria and David Beckham, this wedding was a huge event for the fashion world – and Kate did not disappoint. Kate Middleton looked like a classic beauty wearing a dress designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, a Cartier tiara borrowed from the Queen and a half-up, half-down hairdo with soft, loose curls.

Prince William was named His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus and Kate was named Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn and Baroness Carrickfergus.

How To Create a Faux Bob

Every now and then, many of us like to switch up our hairstyle for a day or night without having to make a long-term commitment.  Eventually, you may start feeling that you’ve already tried every hairstyle you can think of at least three times. What a nice, exciting change would it be if you can fake an entirely different hair cut for a day? For people with short hair, extensions will help to fake long hair. And, those of us with long hair can fake a short, bob haircut for a day with a faux bob. The faux bob is easy enough to do on yourself. Here’s how:

Prep: Apply a bit of TIGI Catwalk Your Highness Root Boost Mousse to damp hair and blow-dry with a round brush for volume. Use a curling iron to add curls all over the hair.

Anchor: Create an anchor at the nape hairline by either rolling up a small, tight, but flat bun or creating a 1” wide braid that runs from side to side. Use bobby pins to flatten the braid against the nape horizontally.

Secure: Divide hair into 3 very low ponytails. Secured the ponytails several inches away from the scalp with small elastic bands.

Pin-up: Grab the very tips of one of the ponytails and roll it up and back toward the scalp. Do this to each of the ponytails. Pin the rolled up ponytails into the anchor braid/bun to secure. Use your fingers and CHI Infra Texture Dual Action Hair Spray to get the final shape you want.

Finish: Lightly run your fingers through the surface of the faux bob and let some natural, short/layered pieces hang over. Mist CHI Infra Texture Dual Action Hair Spray over the style for a hold.

Couvre: Hair Loss Concealer and Root Color Cover-up

CC by Emily Jane Morgan

Couvre hair loss concealer is known for being a great concealer for thinning hair. The idea is, you find the closest match to your hair color and apply it on your scalp to reduce the contrast between your scalp and hair color (so people don’t see straight through thinning hair at your scalp). Couvre stays on through sweating or even swimming. The only way to get it out is with shampoo. However, this product is of interest to more people than just those with thinning hair. The dual-function product can actually be used to touch up the color of your roots at home between salon visits. It probably works best on hair that is dyed a darker color than your natural color but I don’t have any confirmation on that. Here are some tips to get the most out of using Couvre for root color touch-up.

  • Choose the Couvre color closest to your processed color (as you would do for use on thinning hair).
  • Set aside 10 minutes to apply Couvre and allow enough drying time.
  • For best results, use a wet piece of foundation foam (get this at any drugstore) and use it to rub Couvre into your roots or hair part.

Please feel free to share your experience with using Couvre for root color touch-up 🙂
