Quick Beauty Tip – Halloween Hair Crimps!

quicktip-crimpsThinking about an 80’s costume for Halloween this year? Or maybe you’re going to dress up as Daenerys Targaryen from The Game Of Thrones. Whichever way you go, full, gorgeous, crimped hair is an absolute must!

If you got rid of your crimper in the early 90’s with the rest of us you aren’t doomed! You can get the same crimped effect by sleeping overnight with your hair sectioned into small braids. In the morning, flat iron over the braids once or twice to let the creases set in. Then take the braids out and spray with a light hairspray.

Your result will be perfect Halloween hair!

Get Her Look – Julianne Hough’s Top Knot

We see this look everywhere. When attending an elegant affair, but it is warm out or your dress calls for your hair to be pulled up from your shoulders and back from your face, try the top knot. We’ve seen this on celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Julianne Hough, Kelly Osbourne & more. Julliane Hough pairs this look with pinned back bangs. You can choose this option if you have bangs. If not, add body and texture to hair by adding in a braid.

Start off with a french braid right in the middle of your head only going halfway to the crown & secure with a rubber band.

Then flip your whole head forward and grab it to make a high ponytail.

Then flip your whole head forward and grab it to make a high ponytail. It should be where you stopped the braid.

Hold the base of the ponytail and wrap the rest of your hair around as if you are going to make a bun. Doesn’t have to be perfect but make it symmetrical.

Tutorial Tuesday – Sea Salt Spray Recipe

celebrity-beach-wavesIf you’re envious of the gorgeous beach waves that walk the red carpet, join the club! Almost all beachy wave hair tutorials tell you do use a sea-salt spray. Here is our favorite recipe for one that is super simple and gives you a Hollywood look! You will need: a clean spray bottle, 1 cup of water, 1 tsp of sea salt, 1 tsp of hair gel (you can steal your boyfriend’s for extra hold), and 4 drops of essential oil. The last ingredient is optional, but will add scent to your mixture.

Mix the above ingredients in your spray bottle and spritz onto damp hair. Scrunch up each piece you spray. Pair this look with a nice Sunless Tanner and you’ll look like you spent the day on the beach!

Tutorial Tuesday – Lighten Your Hair With Lemon Juice!

Tutorial Tuesday Lemon Juice Highlighter!If keeping up with the Summer Beauty Trends has been breaking the bank, save on highlighting your hair this month by using the age old lemon juice technique! This may not give you the most predictable, and professional look, but if you have wavy or curly hair it can provide gorgeous and natural looking streaks! Here’s what you do:

  1. Squeeze a few lemons into a bowl, strain seeds out. The amount of lemons to use depends on the length and amount of hair you want to highlight.
  2. Pour lemon juice into a clean spray bottle.
  3. Section out the pieces you want to highlight and start spritzing!
  4. Once you have the desired amount of juice on your hair, step outside and soak up some UV rays for 30 minutes.

Caution: be extremely careful not to get any citrus on your hands or face. Wash your hands thoroughly after applying juice or you run the risk of getting phytophotodermatitis! And we can’t leave out the part where we remind you to apply sunscreen too!

After 30 minutes, head back inside and wash your hair normally. Be sure to use a deep conditioner to add the moisture back in that the sun and lemon juice has stripped. Enjoy your  new look!

Tutorial Tuesday – How To Curl Your Hair With A Flat Iron

Everyone is always asking us how to use your flat iron to create loose, large waves in their hair. Today, we reveal the secret. As shown here, start to rotate your wrist toward the bottom of the piece of hair you are working on. For a tighter curl, start closer to the scalp. If your hair usually holds a curl, you’re ready to go. If it has the tendency to drop when you leave the house, put a mist of light hairspray before you bounce. No pun intended! TT-CurlwithIron
