Quick Beauty Tip – Homemade Treatments for Damaged Hair

treatments-for-damaged-hairI’m obviously obsessed with beauty products and I’m not ashamed to say it – but I am also a fitness buff and fully understand and recognize the power of the natural ingredients we all have access to. So many of the delicious & nutritious things we include in our diet can also be used to make us more beautiful too! Here are a few of my favorite hair masks using all natural ingredients you can get at any grocery store!

1. Banana & Avocado: YES we are obsessed with avocados! Mash a ripe avocado and ripe banana and mix well. Apply an even layer to clean, dry hair and let sit for at least 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and condition as usual. Your locks will be moist & shiny when you’re done! Plus, this mixture smells delicious!

2. Honey & Olive Oil: Sounds like the beginning of a salad dressing recipe – but this combo does wonders for your tresses! Combine equal parts of the two and apply from roots to tips. Secure hair in a shower cap and let it sit for 45 minutes. Shampoo lightly and condition normally afterwards. Your hair will be silky & shiny when you’re done!

3. Thyme Treatment: If you suffer from dandruff, try this – boil 8 sprigs of fresh thyme in 2 cups of water. Once rapidly boiling remove from heat and let cool. Strain and massage the leaves into your scalp. Rinse and repeat with leftover mixture in a couple days. This is a natural way to fight flakes!

How to Do an Upside Down French Braid with a Bun

Upside Down French Braid

If you’ve noticed, the braids being posted on Pinterest or on your favorite blogger’s website are not like the braids your mom used to do when you were little. The braid we are in love with, and want to share with you is called the “Brunch Braid” or the upside-down French braid with a bun. You can wear this braid anywhere you go, and it’s much more interesting than your go-to hairstyle – the ponytail. This amazing hairstyle keeps your hair tidy and makes you look polished! Here are the step-by-step instructions and what styling tools you will need! Enjoy!

1 strong pony holder
1 thin pony holder
1 sock
Bobby Pins

We are pretty sure you have all of these materials at home. Let’s get started!

Step 1: If you are on 2nd or 3rd day hair, great, if not, it’s ok. But it will be great because your hair has had time to spring back if you have styled it in anyway.

Step 2:Flip your head upside down and brush your hair.

Step 3:While upside down, grab a small chunk of hair from the nape of your neck and begin to French braid.

Step 4:Continue the French braid untill you’ve gone two-thirds of the way up your head. Fasten the braid with a thin pony holder.

Step 5:Flip right side up and brush through the top of your hair. Take a strong pony holder and and create a high pony.

Step 6:Take your sock and cut off the toe. Then roll the sock into itself until you have a donut. Then slide the donut over your pony.

Step 7:Pull your hair around the pony so you have the shape of a bun. Begin to fold the excess hair under the bottom of the bun and fasten with a pony holder.

Step 8:Pin bun into place.

Step 9:Spray flyaways with a hairspray like TIGI Rockaholic Fun Times Hairpsray. The hairspray gives awesome hold, yet your hair stays soft and not crunchy!

Step 10:….and there you have it!

Mousse for a No Hassle Hairstyle

Agadir Argan Oil Volumizing Styling Mousse is the perfect styling product to apply on damp or dry hair for a quick and easy hairstyle. It contains 100% argan oil which is packed with nourishing ingredients like antioxidants and vitamins. It is a great way to protect hair from thermal damage when styling hair with a curling iron or flat iron. After washing hair, towel dry and apply mousse with your fingers thoroughly. You can either air dry your hair for a look with volume and sexiness. Or for a more styled look, use your curling iron to make defined waves. If you prefer to blow dry hair, you will notice every section of hair frizz free with stylish volume. With a hairstyle like that, all you will need is some smokey eyeshadow and a night out on the town with girlfriends. What is great about this mousse is its versatility in helping hair stay healthy with use of essential oils and its ability to act as a thermal protector.

Sexy Bouffant a la Brigitte Bardot

Fashion icon Brigitte Bardot is most famous for her more sexy styles and looks, but nothing was more sexier than her voluminous hair. We want to create a modern sexy bouffant a la Brigitte Bardot, just like Carrie Underwood did at the 43rd Annual Country Music Awards. To achieve, we applied TIGI Catwalk Strong Mousse on damp hair and blow dried with a medium round brush concentrating at the root area to achieve maximum volume and lift. When root area is dry, use a small brush and take small sections, and create small, romantic curls at the ends. If you have bangs take a large round brush and blow dry those bangs smooth. Next, spray your hair with a finishing spray that is lightweight, brushable, and flexible like It’s A 10 Miracle Finishing Spray. The spray will help you keep your hair in place for when you bring your hair half-up. Gently lift the top area and create the famous Brigitte Bardot bump. For your curls, apply a texture spray like Paul Brown Hawaii Dry Mist Hair Spray. A nice benefit is that it will make your hair look super shiny. Do not forget you need sultry eyelashes! Talika Eyelash Extenders will make your lashes longer and gain volume in as long as it takes you to apply mascara. First, you apply your favorite mascara, then apply Talika Eyelash Extender, and secure the fibers with a second coat of your favorite mascara. The finished result is a natural and sophisticated look. Give meaning to the term va-va-voom! Here at TheBeautyPlace.com, we have the best beauty products at discounted prices.

How To Get The Look: Blake Lively’s Messy Sidebraid Hairstyle

Blake Lively’s Chic Sidebraid Is A Hot Look For This Holiday Season

We don’t know about you but we LOVE Blake Lively’s effortlessly chic messy sidebraid hairstyle.  We are so enamored with the look, in fact, that we sought out our resident Beauty Place stylist and asked her “How do we get the look?!”  Here, her advice on how to achieve the of-the-moment hairstyle yourself.

1.  You want to build up texture by prepping hair with a texturizing spray, such as CHI Infra Dual Texture Hairspray.

2.  Then you want to create extra body and bounce by drying your hair with a diffuser. We like the CHI Rocket Professional Hairdryer.

3.  Use your fingers to rake your hair to one side and create two ponytails by fastening both the top and the bottom with elastic bands.

4.  Pull out the top section and create a fishtail braid.

5.  Next, add a festive clip to the base of the ponytail. (Lively wore a vintage Chanel brooch here.)

And voila!  You are rocking one of the best hairstyles of the season.


The Topknot is Still A Favorite Hair Style Trend

Photo Credit: Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic/Usmagazine.com

Hair style trends can come and go but one hair style that is sure to stay for a while longer is the Top Knot.  A favorite over the summer, the top knot hair style doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.  Worn loose and messy, the popular hair look doesn’t require many hair products.  Worn sleek and stylish, however, and hair products are essential.

Celebrity fans of the top knot include Sienna Miller, Kate Bosworth, Nicole Richie and on Saturday night Reese Witherspoon stepped out at the LACMA Inaugural Art + Film Gala sporting the up-do.

How to get the look?

Step 1: Start with dry hair.  We like to use the T3 Evolution Dryer, which cuts our hair drying time by as much as 70%.  Now, if you want a loose, romantic look, there is no need to worry about straightening you hair.  You could, instead, spray your hair with a texturizer and tease your hair for a more voluminous look.  However, if the sleek bun a la Reese Witherspoon is what you’re after, we suggest straightening your hair first.  The Chi Nano Silver 1″ Flat Iron is ideal.

Step 2: Pull your hair into a high ponytail at the top of your head and secure it with a clear hair elastic. Expert tip: If you want a super-sleek look, spray your brush with hairspray before brushing your hair back into the ponytail.  This is a fail-safe way to ensure your hair stays frizz-less.

Step 3: Wrap your ponytail around the elastic and secure it in place with bobby pins. Criss-cross them for extra-firm hold.

Step 4: Once you have created the topknot look you’re after, spray with hairspray.

The Beauty Place has all the heated hair tools and hair products you need to create this look at hugely discounted prices.

How to do a Fishtail Braid

Fishtail braids are quite stylish these days. When I see them, I think they look pretty simple to do…if I could only see the technique done at least once. Well, I finally saw it! And of course, I’m going to share the “how-to” with you!

First, prep your hair:

  • Apply a smoothing balm like BioSilk Smoothing Balm to clean hair and blow dry.
  • For best results, follow with It’s a 10 Miracle Styling Serum and flat iron your hair.
  • Start Braiding:

  • Divide into 2 sections like a regular braid
  • You should also keep your hair in two separate sections throughout.
  • Grab a small amount from the outside edge of one side (lets say the left side) and cross it over to the other (right) side.
  • Next grab a small amount from the outside edge of the other side (right) and cross it over to the (left) side.
  • Continue alternating sides and doing the same thing until you reach the ends.
  • When grabbing pieces of hair from the outside edge, make sure the pieces are small. Otherwise, using big chunks of hair will just look like a regular braid.
  • Once you’ve reached the ends of your hair, secure the braid with a hair tie.
  • Then, lightly tug at the two sides of the set braid to slightly loosen.
  • Please share your thoughts and comments!
