While cooler weather is all about dramatic, vampy shades with a come-hither approach, spring gives you the opportunity flaunt lighter, brighter hues. One to try is bareMinerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm ($14.99), a luxe formula that’s just as decadent as it sounds. Infused with nourishing vitamin E and hydrating passion fruit seed oil, it drenches lips with moisture while leaving behind a hint of color.

The deeper into spring it gets, the less your hair is impressed. Whether dealing with high humidity or torrential downpours, almost any type of weather situation spells potential disaster for your normally lovely mane. Take matters into your own hands with Blow Pro Weather Girl Anti-Frizz Serum ($17.93). Forming a protective shield over your strands, this lightweight formula combats frizz while adding a healthy, shiny finish.

Whether you’re planning a spring break getaway or a family vacation, you may suddenly find yourself with a hairy dilemma. If shaving your bikini line leaves you more than a little uncomfortable, you need to nip that issue in the bud – and stat. A box of Bliss Ingrown Eliminating Pads ($9.29) works wonders. It contains powerful alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids that work to gently but thoroughly exfoliate skin. (Remember, this is key when you’re removing bikini hair!) Say farewell to those pesky bumps and enjoy smoother skin as you laze by the pool.

 

 

Party Girl Hairstyle: Holiday Beauty

Amika Tourmaline Curler 19mm at TheBeautyPlace.com

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!

Make Waves With Hot Holiday Curls and Hairstyles

Jessica Simpson Often Opts for Curly and Wavy Hairstyles

The Holidays are almost upon us and we all want to look fabulous from head to toe for festive parties.  In a break away from sleek, straight styles, we expect to see a lot of curls  and bounce in the hottest holiday hairstyles this year.  Read on for the perfect way to make waves–and an entrance–this holiday season.

The best way to make curls and unruly behave is to keep hair healthy.  Use a deep-conditioning treatment on your hair every two weeks to “feed” your hair and keep it strong, shiny and healthy.  CHI’s Silk Infusion is perfect for this.

Hydrated hair is essential for healthy curls.  If you have naturally curly hair, let it dry naturally whenever you can to avoid drying them out.

We also suggest using a hydrating shampoo and conditioner, such as CHI Infra Shampoo and treatment, to help lock in moisture.  These products nourish your hair, tame frizz and smooth flyaway’s in any weather.

To create glamorous holiday curls, we suggest shampooing and conditioning your hair.  While the hair is still wet, spray with a thermal protection spray.  We like CHI Iron Guard.  Then dry hair on medium heat.  If you prefer using rollers, dry hair until slightly damp.  If you’re opting for a curling iron or waver, dry hair fully.

Add a touch of holiday sparkle to your curls–a necklace in place of a headband can be a beautiful, glamorous touch.
