Party Girl Hairstyle: Holiday Beauty

Amika Tourmaline Curler 19mm at

Amika Tourmaline Curler 19mm at

This year we are in love clipless curling irons. This type of curling wand creates sexy waves, prevents snags, crimp marks and the “prom” curl. It is the go-to hair tool for many top hair stylists because it heats up fast, it gets really hot, and curls last for a long while! In the picture you see the Amika Tourmaline Curler 19mm in a giraffe print. Since you curl the wand around the barrel, you can control the tightness of the curl and create countless curly hairstyles.

Thanksgiving is next week and the question trending this week is, “Who is cooking this year?” We want to ask you, “What hairstyle will you do for this holiday?” Here we feature the party girl hairstyle with the help of a clipless curling iron. Do it this holiday! Everyone will be sharing memories, jokes, great food and talking about how great you look!

Step 1:
Brush your hair and apply a hair serum or treatment like Agadir Argan Oil Hair Treatment to condition and protect hair from damage.
Step 2: Create a half ponytail and use a clip to hold the top half of your hair.
Step 3: Grab a 1 inch section from the loose bottom half of the ponytail.
Step 4: Start winding the section around the barrel starting from the center of the wand.
Step 5: As soon as you are finished winding the section wait 3 seconds. Turn your curling iron vertically and let the curl slip out.
Step 6: Repeat with several sections of hair.
Step 7: The curling wand we used took 10 minutes to curl our entire head!
Step 8: Finish with a flexible hold hairspray.
Step 9: Enjoy your night! Have fun!

Beauty Tools for A More Gorgeous you…and Him too!

Tweezerman Beauty Tools at

Tweezerman Beauty Tools at

Beauty professionals, estheticians, and top makeup artists all use beauty tools to create perfectly angled eyebrows, neat cuticles, and the curliest lashes.  Why is it that, a lash curler is looked upon as like a torture device?  We use mascara to make our eyelashes appear longer, thicker with more volume, yet our lashes don’t look like the ones we see on Pinterest or in our favorite fashion magazine. Are you walking around in sandals with cracked heels? Beauty tools are small little investments that take care of you and show you care about yourself. Get these beauty tools and make yourself a personal grooming kit.

Beauty Tool 1:  Tweezerman Eyelash Curler.  Maximize the potential of your eyelashes.  If your excuse is that they are sparse, I have a good one for you – this will make your eyes look bright and give your eyelashes the appearance of being healthy and longer.  Plus, your eyes will look more alluring. Defining your eyes this way will make your face appear younger and softer and it makes a huge difference in your appearance.

How To Use An Eyelash Curler:

Step 1:  Start with clean, mascara-free eyelashes.  Step 2:  Open the eyelash curler as wide as it can open.  Step 3:  Position the eyelash curler at the base of your lash-line and close the eyelash curler when eyelashes are in place.  Step 4:  Open eyelash curler as wide as it can, and only then pull away from your eyelashes.

Beauty Tool 2: Tweezerman Slant Tweezer. The slant tweezer is an award winning beauty tool because of its slant design. Its stainless-steel tip grabs hair firmly and eases the pain when pulling hair. Use the tweezers in between visits to your beauty professional to pluck any stray hairs. Get the travel-size version of the slant for less than $10 and keep a pair of tweezers in your purse or travel-bag.

Beauty Tool 3: Tweezerman Mini Manicure Kit . Have a meeting with the boss in 5 minutes and your nails look a bit raggedy? Take out this little manicure kit, push back those cuticles and file your nails. Fast! This little manicure kit is packaged in a protective clear case to keep tools clean and in one place. The kit contains a fingernail clipper with ultra-sharp precision blades, a mini cuticle pusher, a nail cleaner, and a mini nail file. It comes in at under $16 so you can have one in a few of your purses, and better yet, its perfect for gifting to friends or a co-worker! They will think of you every time they take the kit out to do a little mani work waiting in line or at the bus stop.

Beauty Tool 4: Tweezerman Pedro Callus Stone . A super-sturdy callus stone is a must-have for soft and smooth feet all year long. What we love about this stone is that it features two sides. One side is coarse for reducing calluses and the fine side is for smoothing rough skin. The sleek handle is super comfortable, and perfect for hanging in your shower. Smooth a little every day when in the shower, and your feet will always be soft.

Beauty Tool 5: Tweezerman Facial Hair Scissors. I don’t mean for you! Facial hair scissors come in handy for grooming moustaches, beards, and any type of facial hair.

Beauty Tool 6: Tweezerman Brow Shaping Scissors & Brush. Learn to shape and groom your eyebrows. Once you get the hang of it you will ask yourself what took you so long?

How to Shape and Groom Your Own Eyebrows:

Step 1: Using the Brow Shaping Scissors & Brush, brush eyebrows up and into place. Use the scissors to cut hairs that are long, but go slowly keeping eyebrows equal to each other. Too much cutting and areas may start to look sparse.
Step 2: Warm up pores by using steam or a warm towel. This will lessen the pain of tweezing. Tweeze in the direction of hair growth, never opposite. Grab each individual hair at the root, the Slant design of the tweezers will help ease the pull.
Step 3: Lightly blend in eyebrows with a brow sculptoror pencil.
Step 4: Step back from mirror and check your brows periodically. Tweeze both eyebrows at the same time. Taking a little from one eyebrow and tweeze from the other eyebrow to keep symmetry.

7 Makeup Tips That Make You Look Younger

Makeup Products that Make You Look Younger

All of us wish we had Angelina Jolie’s makeup artist to get the no makeup makeup look that makes this gorgeous lady look young and sexy! The holidays are coming up, and there is no time like the present to get ready for fantastic dinners and parties with friends and family. Here are a few makeup tips that will make you look 10 years younger!

Tip 1: Wear moisturizer before applying makeup. A lotion or cream that hydrates your face makes your skin look fresh. Your skin absorbs moisture and it will look plump instantly!

Tip 2: Apply double duty foundation. By double duty we mean a foundation that not only conceals, but helps your skin look better. A great example is TIGI Cosmetics Satin Liquid Foundation. This foundation offers medium to full coverage, but contains moisturizers and antioxidants! If you do not know yet, antioxidants are anti-agers! How about smoothing a little wrinkle while wearing makeup?

Tip 3: Stock your makeup with moisture. Skip the heavy powder. Anything that says gel, cream, lotion is a go. Unless your skin gets as oily as a frying pan, avoid any makeup that is dry. And even if you have oily skin, choose makeup that clearly states oil-free. This way your skin is moisturized, but not slick.

Tip 4: Apply bronzer. Bronzer can make you look younger and skinnier. Grab a blush brush and swipe bronzer across forehead, cheeks, and chin. You can use bronzer whenever you want to look tan, too. A sun tan lasts only a couple a days, but its damage can be seen a couple years down the road in the way of wrinkles, saggy skin, dark spots, and dry skin.

Tip 5: Curl your lashes. As we age, our eyelashes can get sparse or gravity does a job on them. Featuring your eyes is a great way to look younger because they’ll look brighter! Own an eyelash curler?. We just got one of the best beauty tool brands out there, Tweezerman. Position the Tweezerman Classic Lash Curler at the base of your lash line. Firmly but gently squeeze and release the curler.

Tip 6: Drink water. Of course, eating veggies and fruit is a great way to look younger, but water helps your body work better! Toxins, waste and anything that is not good for you get flushed out. And your skin will show it. Think Gwyneth Paltrow.

Tip 7: Wear a bright pop of color. Be it lipstick, an eye shadow or even a manicure a bright color gives off the look of being younger, interesting and fun!

Try any or all of these. Let us know how you do!

Hair Care and Curling Iron Tips for a Glam Hairstyle

Hair Care and Curling Iron Tips for a Glam Hairstyle

Curling irons are a stylist’s tools of the trade. They can last for years, and help us alter an entire look in minutes! The holidays allow us to share with our friends and family good food, fun times, and great memories. With a simple curling iron, create a super-glam hairstyle that will take you from party to party. Let’s face it. With all the fun you are set to have your hair should match the excitement of the season and of course your cheer! Here we feature the steps for a hairstyle with body, waves, and a little va-va-voom!

Styling Tip 1: Choose a curling iron for its barrel size. Madonna loves Veronica Lake curls, and her curls look as if she used a ¾ inch or 19mm barrel. Our favorite is this zebra print curling iron. A ¾ inch or even a little smaller than that like 5/8 inch or 16mm barrel creates a loose, full curl. If you have short hair, and want a tight, bouncy curl a 3/8 inch or 13mm barrel. These tight curls can be combed through to create a retro hairstyle. For body and volume a 1 inch or 1 ¼ inch, this size barrel creates deep waves.

Styling Tip 2: Find out the heat settings of your curling wand. A heated styling tool can reach temperatures of up to 410 degrees. Unfortunately, many of us have hair that is difficult to curl or curls don’t last very long once you create curls. This is the reason for a professional curling iron that reaches such high temperatures.

Styling Tip 3:
Use a hair serum before styling. The aforementioned tip informed you a curling wand can get as hot as 410 degrees. Don’t think you need a hair serum? Do you heat up a pan without a little olive oil?

Styling Tip 4: Let’s get ready to curl! What kind of curls are you interested in? Step 1. Part your hair as desired. Step 2. Apply a hair serum like Agadir Argan Oil Hair Treatment, placing special attention to the ends of hair. Your ends tend to be the driest. Step 3. Turn on your curling wand and wait a few seconds. Step 4. Curl your hair in 2 inch sections starting from the front. Use a clip to keep hair you have curled in placed. Step 5. Hold the iron vertically, curl sectioned hair, and clip completed hair. Step 6. Wait about 10 minutes for your curls to cool. Comb them lightly with your fingers. Apply a finishing spray to hold.

Styling Tip 5: Consider a curling iron with a tourmaline or ceramic coated barrel. The ceramic or tourmaline technology preserves hair color and prevents frizz.
