SUMMER HAIRCARE: EASY AS 3-4-5

Olaplex

Before you clock in on that vacation time, there are a few essentials that will make soaking up the sun and water that much better. Sunblock? Check. Swimsuits? Check. Clothing? Check. Olaplex? If you haven’t packed it already, you seriously should. Taking Olaplex on your summer holiday ensures you won’t return home with crispy, crunchy, dry locks after all that fun in the sun and water.

Healthy hair on vacation (or stay-cation for you hustlers out there!) is as easy as the Olaplex 3-4-5 system. We’re talking about the Olaplex No.3 Treatment, Olaplex No.4 Shampoo, and Olaplex No.5 Conditioner.

Remember, Olaplex is customizable to your lifestyle. You don’t have to be indoors at home to have amazing hair. Olaplex Ambassador, Bianca Hillier, applies No.3 while on vacation and keeps it on while she lays out in the sun, or takes a dip in the pool. Olaplex No.3 repairs the broken disulfide bonds in the hair, leaving you with healthier hair than before, but it does not hydrate. If dry hair is your vice on vacation, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with that too. If your hair is feeling dry from too much salt water, consider laying out with Olaplex No.5 in your hair for a moisturizing treatment. This will give your hair the moisture and strength it needs– just remember to rinse it out afterwards!

Ready, jet-set, go! Relax knowing Olaplex is doing all the work while you enjoy the summer sun.

Why you need scrunchies & scarves in your life – Hello Hair

If you’re a Sex And The City fan, you might recall Carrie declaring in an episode that no woman in Manhattan would be caught dead rocking a scrunchie. She might backtrack on that statement now! Scrunchies and other cute hair accessories are back in a big way, and are popping up all over social media.

Are you thinking its time to up your hair game with some cute accessories?! You’ll be happy to know that not only are scrunchies fun to add to your look, they’re also beneficial for your hair in comparison to normal hair elastics.

Ever get a ‘too tight ponytail headache’ by the end of each day, release your ponytail, and feel so much relief?! If you’re wearing a scrunchie, your hair won’t be under so much strain and you’ll minimize your risk of strands ripping out at the same time.

Hair scarves are also an amazing addition to any up-do. Having a boring hair day? Add an accessory to your look and it will make it so much more exciting.

It’s time to spring clean

From tech & wardrobe to hair

his season marks a time to refresh, clean out, and reflect. Time to clean things up, clear things out, and look forward for a renewed you for spring. Here’s how…

1. Do a tech detox – When you hear the phrase “tech detox” you probably think take some time off your phone to unplug. And while that’s all well and good to do often, I’m referring to actually cleaning up the contents on your phone so that it’s less cluttered and less distracting.

2. File away your email inbox – Take an afternoon to create a filing system for your email inbox.

3. Tackle your wardrobe – Now that we’ve gotten two tech tips out of the way, it’s time to dive into spring-cleaning physical items and areas of your house. Many of us clean out our closets regularly, and spring is an especially great time to go through the items you didn’t reach for all winter long and make room for new spring and summer purchases.

4. Spring clean your beauty routine – Take some time this season to wash your makeup brushes and replace old ones that have seen better days. Similarly, throw out and replace old makeup palettes, mascaras, lipsticks and everything in between.

5. Spring clean your hair – There’s no better way to start fresh than with the beautiful, clean lines of a good haircut or trim. You’ll get the swing, the bounce, the crisp edge, and that I-just-left-the-salon spring in your step.

The new season trend

3 Easy tips to winter-proof your hair

Kylie and Kendall Jenner’s hairstylist shares 3 easy tips to winter-proof your hair.  Love them or hate them, they always have great hair.

With winter firmly upon us our locks need a little extra TLC so they don’t turn dry, dull and withered thanks to all that time spent huddled over the heater. But what precisely should we do to winter-proof our hair? Vogue asked Colombini to share his best seasonal switch ups, so the cool temps don’t rob us of our lustrous locks. Here, the celebrity stylist shares his three best weather-proofing tips.

Seasonal shampoo switch-up: “As the seasons change our beauty regimen should also change. During the winter our hair and skin tends to be the driest. Just as you would use a heavier face cream [in winter], our shampoo and conditioner should also be stepped up with extra moisture to keep our hair from getting dull.”
Stop seasonal breakage: “The number one reason we get hair breakage is colour processing and the number two is environmental. Depending on the degree of breakage I recommend any kind of protein building hair mask.”
Brighten up dull locks: “If you ain’t got shine it ain’t going to be shiny, so fake it until you make it. I love hair oil [to fake shiny tresses].”

The best hairstyle for long hair – The Zoe Report

Styling long hair doesn’t have to be a tedious daily mission. Sure, there’s more product to be used and extensive strands to untangle, but long-haired girls have it pretty good. Apart from being a major source of hair inspiration, longer, fuller hair seems to be at the top of everyone’s beauty bucket list.

That said, we understand that—as with any hair length and cut—you can run into a bit of a styling rut. Ladies with lengthy locks often find themselves rotating two or three looks in the name of time (and patience). If you’re in need of some fresh hair insight, look no further. We’ve handpicked our top choices, courtesy of our fave A-listers. From Kendall Jenner’s sleek pony look to Zendaya’s voluminous curls, these are the long-haired muses to keep at top of mind.

Hair hacks for new mums

Becoming a mum for the first time is one of the most transformative times in your life but it doesn’t mean your hair has to suffer. In the first year of being a mum, I was all about making sure my beauty regime worked smart, not hard. Even though I didn’t leave the house, er, most days, I still wanted to look good because that was part of what made me feel good.

Because you’ll be knee deep in nappies and bottles for at least the first year, I’ve come up with the ultimate list of hair tips for busy mums. From easy hairstyles to the best hair colour to have when convenience becomes your motto in life.

  • Take a French girl approach and go for a stylish but disheveled look. Wash your hair every second day or if you’re brave enough, every third day. Embrace what I like to call a miracle worker, dry shampoo, on the days when your hair starts to look oily.
  • Instead of spending hours fighting your curls, enhance them with a specialised curling product. After washing your hair, comb it with a wide-tooth comb and apply a leave-in cream that smoothes out frizz but still allows for natural movement.
  • Ditch the curling iron, and plait or braid your hair, before you hit the sack. When you wake up not only will you have an instant style but you’ve saved your hair from any heat styling.
  • Flattering on any face shape or type of hair, the lob is the perfect length for busy mums. It doesn’t take long to dry or style and is still long enough to slick back into a pony or low bun.
  • Root stretching was made for busy mums! It’s a simple way to colour your hair when you can’t keep up with regrowth. The hairdresser will use a hair colour similar to your natural tone and will blend the colour out from the roots, instead of painting a solid line of colour from the roots down to the ends.

They use Showpony Hair Extensions, what sets Showpony apart from others is the amazing hair quality.

Extensions are a commitment. You can’t just get up in the morning and look like you have just stepped out of a Disney movie. They require styling, and for you to sleep in plaits. But, Showpony extensions are seriously amazing, and will totally transform your look.
