Coloring hair at home can be inexpensive and time saving, but also tricky, so follow these tips to avoid disaster
Highlights can add dimension to hair and give it a gorgeous sun-kissed effect when done correctly, but a few missteps can make you look skunk-like or worse. Thanks to experts Rona O'Conner, celebrity colorist and co-owner of the Lukaro salon in Beverly Hills, Calif. and Marcy Cona, Clairol Global Creative Director of Color and Style, we got the scoop on how to successfully highlight hair at home -- check out their tips here.
Follow these easy steps to turn blah hair into a sexy, lived in style
Eli Thomas, owner of Thomas Chance Hairdressing in Santa Monica, Calif. shows you how to transform a sleek bob into a more playful, tousled look (a la Ginnifer Goodwin, Blake Lively and Jennifer Aniston). All you need are a few key items and you're set!
I have mentioned in the past that my name in high school was "lipstick queen" and it's something that makes me proud. It's kind of a family thing. My mom would never let me leave the house without wearing lipstick. She said it made me look "washed out." In my grandmother's final year with Alzheimer's disease, she still proudly wore her lipstick. I remember her on the flight back to Illinois for my grandfather's funeral. I will never forget that precious moment when she pulled a tube of lipstick out of her pocket and had me apply that bright pink color to her lips.
All these years later, a nice solution from Chapstick. Their new True Shimmer would be a great compromise for those who don't want to wear lipstick but still need moisture and a little sparkle. True Shimmer provides moisture, shimmer, and an illusion of color. I feel so bare without lipstick, but with True Shimmer, I can get a subtle amount of color and it feels great! It will work great to wear to the gym, breakfast, work, or just to cruise to the library and grab a few books. You never know who you will see, right?
True Shimmer is great for those who don't want to spend too much on lip balm/lip color too. At only $2.79 (on drugstore.com) it is very reasonably priced. It comes in four distinct colors with awesome scents. Flavors Available: Botanical Berry, Peppermint Rush, Tropical, and Blended Fruit Sherbet
With a name like Chapstick, how can you go wrong? I am sure Grandma Vani would approve.
I have been hooked on this website. It is written by Jenna Weber, this adorable girl living in Florida who bakes and tries to live a healthy lifestyle to the fullest. She writes about food, exercise, and her life.
*Warning: Some sources have said that spinach is healthiest when lightly steamed and that the body cannot process it uncooked. This might cause stomach issues. In addition, drinking too many of the smoothies can really pack the calories into your day so don't overdo it (use less fruit and more veggies).
Supporters of Wheat Grass powder swear that it helps with wrinkles and skin tone. So far, no results but you never know! More on this subject to come............
