Quick Beauty Tip – Long Lashes!

quicktip-curl-your-lashes

Using a lash curler helps to open up your eyes and create more visible lashes. Everyone would like to have lashes that can make a statement. Well there’s a way to do that.

Before you curl, heat up your lash curler with your blow dryer or stick it under warm water for a few seconds. Test the temperature on your wrist so you don’t burn yourself! Similar to heating your curling iron to curl your hair; a heated tool will create a curl much more effectively that an unheated tool. So, a warm curler will give the effect of longer-lasting, noticeably curlier lashes. This trick works on false lashes, too!

Let’s Go Halvsies

It is no secret that our blow dryers and flat irons dry out our gorgeous locks! That’s why here at The Beauty Place we live and die for our hair masques, heat primers, and shine sprays. But lately we’ve come up with an even better technique. We like to call this “halvsies”. You save part of your hair from intense heat by only straightening half of it at a time!

Option 1: For pretty waves just iron halfway down from your roots. This will straighten the pieces around your face and head, but leave you with a natural look. The best part? Your hair iron will never touch your sensitive tips, therefore lessening the likelihood of breakage, and dry, split-ends.

Option 2: For lots of body only straighten the bottom half of your hair starting about 3 inches away from your scalp, depending on your length. The best part? You’ll get tons of body up top while rocking silky, straight hair on the bottom!

Smooth Hair with Macadamia Natural Oil Hair Products

Taylor Swift's signature curls are smooth and frizz-free.   Do you straighten or blow dry hair more than 4 times a week? Do you use hair color? Do you put your hair though any chemical processing?

All of the above leads to dry hair.

Dry hair is easily damaged and the results are split ends, poofy ends and unhealthy looking hair that is weak and easily broken.

What to put on dry hair:

Today’s Flash Beauty Sale includes the Macadamia Natural Oil Rinse, Deep Repair Masque and Hair Oil Treatment. These are your go-to essentials for whenever you wash or style hair that needs some TLC.

The Macadamia Natural Oil Rinse is a super-hydrating deep conditioner. It will smooth out poofy ends after 5 minutes. You will notice the results once you comb your hair. It works for all hair types and is ideal if your hair needs moisture. Use it daily to soften, moisturize and detangle hair.

The Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque is a hair reconstructor ideal for twice a week. This will be your ally in preserving your hair color after last week’s salon visit! It also helps to keep your hair smoother in between hair straightening. Use it twice a week and enjoy your super-soft hair.

The Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment is oil for your hair. You apply this hair treatment on damp hair before straightening with a flat iron or before blow drying your locks. The hair oil is perfect for using with any styling tool because it creates a barrier that protects the hair cuticle from losing its moisture. If your hair loses moisture, it dehydrates and looks dry. This hair serum or oil can be used by itself after washing your hair. Apply a nickel-sized amount to palms before using any styling tool or after washing on damp hair. Comb through and style away.

Macadamia Natural Oil Hair Products is a hair care line infused with Macadamia and Argan oils. It is exactly what you need to achieve the shiny, luscious hair that you spot on the red carpet!

Tips on Styling Tool Use for Healthy Hair

Healthy Hair and Proper Styling Tool Use

Many of us have a love and hate relationship with our styling tools. They help us achieve straight, curly or wavy hairstyles, but since flat irons and curling wands can reach temperatures of up to 450 degrees they can easily damage our hair in under a week! Damaged hair is frizzy, dry, and with split ends. Is your mane showing signs of damage? Follow our styling tips on proper thermal styling, and display your gorgeous hair with pride.

Tip 1: A styling tool uses heat to manipulate hair and shape it, but hair is not meant to withstand 450 degrees worth of heat. Tune your flat iron to 410 degrees. At this temperature it is still really hot to wave or straighten any hair type.

Tip 2: Do you know heat sucks moisture out of hair? When hair is dry it is tight and can break easy, when hair has moisture it is flexible, and tougher to break. Think about this next time you curl or blow dry hair, and reach for a silk-infused hair serum like CHI Silk Infusion. Its alcohol-free formula will not dry out hair instead it will leave it incredibly soft. How does it protect hair from heat? It coats every hair strand with a silk ingredient that delivers strength and shine with no build-up. Another hair serum that does the same work is BioSilk Silk Therapy.

Tip 3: Unless your flat iron is a wet-to-dry iron do not iron damp hair! A sizzling sound does not mean it is working. It means your hair is frying!

Tip 4: Any styling tool that features ceramic, tourmaline or ionic technology is perfect. These really smooth surfaces are usually smoothed in a way that prevents frizz and damage.

Tip 5: Give your hair a break a day or two. Second day hair still looks great!

Follow all of these tips so you can use your flat iron guilt-free! If you are looking for styling products to create any look go to TheBeautyPlace.com and find the beauty industry’s top brands at affordable prices!
