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!
Here at TheBeautyPlace.com we are committed to getting you the best beauty scoop, information and entertainment. On Friday, we began our three-day series on Celebrity Skincare Secrets and today we offer two more important steps to great-looking skin.
‘A good way to boost your skin’s circulation is to freeze some hydrating toner or floral water in an ice cube tray and pop one out to rub over the skin when you need an extra glow,’ advises Julia Hart, whose Shinso Natural Facelift has been described as the ultimate in skin rejuvenation. ‘Wrap muslin or cotton wool around the ice cube. The coldness will stimulate the circulation and reduce puffiness.’ Why not try the Peter Thomas Roth Conditioning Tonic.
Pssst: Shinso fans include Eva Longoria, Jennifer Aniston and Charlize Theron.

‘Rescue parched skin with an at-home remedy mask,’ suggests Sarah Chapman, whose High Definition Facial is loved by Queen Rania of Jordan and actress Naomi Watts. ‘Use ingredients which contain nourishing vitamins, anti-oxidants, natural soothers and exfoliators. We like the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Masque.
BEST TIP: DIY it! Honey is a natural moisturizer and milk, natural yogurt and bananas are perfect for nourishing and soothing the skin. Mix together to create a paste, gently rub over the skin and leave for 15 minutes to allow it to be absorbed.’
