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!

Get Her Look – Aria Montgomery, Pretty Little Liars

Aria-Montgomery-StyleThe Pretty Liars may not be beautiful on the inside but they sure look good on the outside! We found an outfit we just know little Aria Montgomery would wear. We paired a skin tight Gingam dress with an electric yellow crossbody bag and understated wedges. This number just screams her understated, classy meets sexy style.

Get her beautiful hairstyle with a curling iron and a spritz of lightweight hairspray to hold the curl. Or, use your flat iron to curl the ends with a quick flick of the wrist where you want the curl to start. Full Tutorial Here.

For her angelic makeup, the main focus is on her eyes. Use a matte powder foundation to get a smooth all over look. Apply the three lightest colors in a neutral eyeshadow palette. Full Tutorial Here. Fill in brows with a pencil, and apply eyeliner to the top lid. She has accentuated eyes and baby soft skin making her look sweet, but powerful. Apply under eye liner and blend upwards with a smudgie. Then brush mascara onto curled lashes to make the look even more smoldering. Top the look off with some light pink lip gloss. It’s just a small hint of pink to play up the innocence!

Quick Beauty Tip – Use Colored Liner

If you’re rocking the super hot, Summer bang look, you may be suffering from “disappearing eyelid syndrome”.

Depending on the weather, or how long it has been since your last cut, your bangs have the tendency to cover your done up eyelids, and you miss out on the chance to brighten them up.

In order to pull off that POP use a colored liner on your top and bottom lid, like Kourtney’s royal blue eyeliner look shown here.

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!

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

Quick Beauty Tip – Hide Your Roots!

quicktip-hiderootsWe are all busy, and sometimes retouching our hair gets bumped to the bottom of the list. Luckily, I have a quick way you can hide your roots!

The zig-zag part has made a comeback! Use it to hide your roots and break up that harsh look of them growing out.

Use a comb to part your hair at an angle to the left or to the right and part it back the opppsite way. Bonus: This look also creates volume!
