Celeb Style Inspiration

Candyfloss tones and washed-out colour are going to continue as a prominent theme this year.  Next year will see a shift away from baby pink and more towards apricot and an infusion of subtle hues.

Linking well with the soft pop shades – girls are now embracing an all over bleach colour so they are able to experiment and mix up their shades week-in, week-out.

New for 2016, the ‘glunge’ hair trend (that’s glam-grunge btw) is based on an undone texture but with a glamorous quality, moving away from the salty, dishevelled beach waves into hair that is more premium and luxe.

Still very much a luxe trend is the use of caramel and moving your natural colour away from the roots to the front. Beautiful amber and nude soft tones create a feeling of luxury and an indulgent finish.

Look Younger Instantly

There are some things in life that get better with age (wine, cheese, and George Clooney, to name a few). Generally speaking, however, we’d like our skin and hair to look as young as possible—or at least be an accurate reflection of how we feel on the inside. In our never-ending quest for the fountain of youth, makeup artists for the stars give out some secrets.

Time to Detox

Detoxing, or cleansing, has become a popular way of coping with our stressful, hurried lives. This is a set time, usually from a week to a month, where we juice or avoid specific types of food, in an effort to flush out toxins from our system.

Once a detox is done, a lot of people rush back into their old habits, why not incorporate changes from your detox into your lifestyle and create some new, healthier habits to keep those detox benefits. Though it isn’t always simple to start healthier habits, think about how you felt at the end of your detox. Sleeping better and feeling better, these are things you want to take with you. Have a day or a meal every week where you only eat raw. Buy more fresh foods, whole foods, and add them into your meals. Think about losing some of the chemicals from your household and buying organic versions instead.

Look for little ways to make your lifestyle healthier and more sustainable.

Natural Ways to Transform your Beauty Routine

You don’t need to go further than your kitchen to rejuvenate your skin, soften your hair, and regain that youthful glow.

1) Baking Soda
Do you have oily hair and dandruff? Baking soda helps removes dead skin and oil buildups – without drying out your scalp! Rub a baking soda and water solution into your roots before you get your hair wet. For best results, scrub your entire scalp with your fingertips.

2) Apple Cider Vinegar
Rinse your hair with an apple cider vinegar solution after your regular shampoo routine. Apple cider vinegar returns shine, prevents split-ends, and even reduces frizz and hair-static during dry winter months.

3) Coconut Oil
Do you struggle with frizzy hair and split ends? Coconut oil has a cure for that too. Periodically apply a coconut oil mask to your hair to re-moisturize dry ends, reduce frizz, and even enhance your natural curl pattern.

It’s time to let Santa Shine

Sooner or later we all have to deal with grey hair, at this time of year none of us want to compete with Santa!.

Whether we’re in our twenties, thirties, or forties, that dreaded grey hair will eventually show up and you practically sprint to the salon to get your roots retouched…the cycle has started– and because grey hair has a different type of texture and does not contain the pigments found in non-grey hair, the colour may fade out pretty quickly.  Here are some genius ways to cover up between appointments.

Hide your roots for longer, if you have wavy or curly hair you can get away with grey roots because your hair has more volume, but if you have straight, flat hair, you are going to need a few products to give you a lift such as texturizers and dry shampoos.

Try some root-friendly hairstyles, braids, French twists and any interesting updos you’ve been wanting to try are the way to go. It mixes all the colours together, disguises grey and shows dimension.

From hair “lipstick” to hair “mascara,” there’s an array of temporary cover-up options that are ideal for banishing bits of grey at the roots or along the hairline. A good formula won’t streak in the rain and stays put until you shampoo.

Whether you’re covering them up or letting them shine, you’ll notice that grey hairs tend to be coarser than pigmented hair.  Keep everything under control with a rich conditioner, and use it often.

Of course, you can simply own those silver locks. Though that too requires some maintenance. An occasional dose of color counteracts the brassiness that frequently comes with grey. Swap out your regular shampoo once a week for a tinted version to give your natural colour a punch.
