9 Easy Ways to Summer-Proof Your Beauty Routine

       
Monday, May 30th, 2016

Long beach weekends and all-night mojito parties in summers are something we can get on board with. But the rising temperatures and the accompanying sweat (eeeww) definitely put a damper on things!

Slipping eye liner and bleeding lipstick, anyone?

That doesn’t mean you can’t look gorgeous all summer long. Start using these 9 EASY, fool-proof ways to summer-proof your beauty routine. Because, we all know you aren’t saying no to that weekend party invite.

Go Frizz Free

If it were only that easy.

Kill frizz by limiting the use of heat tools. Embrace the natural beachy waves!

Switch up your shampoo to a more moisturizing one to avoid drying out your hair and frizzing them up. Try Fekkai – Essential Shea Shampoo, which contains Shea Butter for some intense hydration or Fekkai – Brilliant Glossing Shampoo, which is formulated with olive oil to give your hair enviable shine!

fight frizz

Once a week, use a clarifying shampoo like Fekkai – Apple Cider Shampoo to get rid of all impurities and the grime you brought back from the beach.

Oil Up

In the most gorgeous sense.

Before you take your daily dip in the pool, remember to wet your hair with water and then seal your strands with a nourishing oil serum. This way since your hair strands are already wet (hair pores filled with the ‘clean’ water) and sealed, the chlorinated water from the pool won’t damage your hair as much.

Try a nourishing blend of oils like Hamadi – Healing Serum which contains Sunflower Oil, Avocado Oil, Olive Oil, Ylang-Ylang, Moroccan Vanilla, Bergamot and Palmarosa Essential Oils!

Mask It On

You know you want to.

While a good conditioner like Fekkai – Essential Shea Conditioner will help keep the frizzies at bay, a deep-conditioning mask will give your hair the necessary hydration boost.

Rita Hazan, celebrity colorist and salon owner, recommends applying a deep conditioner on damp hair after a dip in the ocean or pool. This way while you lie around and get yourself a good, bronzy tan, the sun will act as a heat treatment on your masked hair and give it double the hydration boost.

Condition-and-Care

We recommend you trying a nourishing mask like Fekkai – Essential Shea Riche Moisture Masque which contains no sulfates and is formulated with hydrating, frizz-fighting ingredients like Shea Butter and Olive Oil.

To Exfoliate or NOT to Exfoliate

A big no-no for tanning fans.

While exfoliation helps reveal gorgeous complexion, it essentially does so by removing the top layer of the skin. So if you are into major tanning (sorry, pale buddies), you need to step away from the exfoliator.

exfoliate

Not only will excessive exfoliation remove your hard-earned tan but will also make your skin more sensitive to the sun.

The best way is to limit exfoliation to once or at most, twice a week and follow up with a good sunscreen.

Greasy Face No More

Remember the fine line between glowing skin and grease ball?

The dry skinned gals might be okay with their regular moisturizers but unfortunate, oily skinned girls need to change their moisturizers from creamy, indulgent ones to gel, water-based ones in the summer.

Gel moisturizers are usually water based and very light-weight to help deliver the right amount of hydration without making you look like a grease factory. A light-weight moisturizer like Philosophy – Hope In A Jar is the way to go!

Remember, DO NOT skip moisturizer all together. Your skin can be oily and still be dehydrated at the same time. And, who wants dull, lack-luster skin, right?

Prime Time Special

Don’t let your makeup melt into your mojito!

A good primer is extremely important not only to create a smooth base for facial makeup but also to help increase its longevity especially in the humid months.

There are different primers targeted for different skin concerns like minimizing the appearance of pores, controlling oil, correcting skin tone, hydrating, etc (the list goes on; trust us, it does). So what does a girl on a budget do?

Untitled

Buy a kick-ass primer that targets ALL these concerns while controlling oil in scorching heat and soaring humidity: BECCA Cosmetics – Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector.

A primer to end all primers, BECCA Cosmetics – Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector will not only minimize the appearance of your pores and give you a super smooth base for your foundation but it will also help keep your skin matte for a good 6 hours!

Spray It On

Oily-skinned gals, we feel for you.

If even the Becca primer can’t save your makeup for melting off, we recommend adding an extra step and setting your makeup with a setting spray like Dermablend – Set + Refresh Long-lasting Makeup Setting Spray.

While these steps will ensure that your makeup lasts through the longest of the dance parties, do look into your skincare regimen to see why your skin is so oily. Are you stripping off the natural oils of your face? Are you skipping the moisturizer? Are you using Alcohol-based products in your skincare routine?

In any case, target your skin concerns first before splurging in the makeup products.

Trade In for Gels

Say no to pencils!

Pencil eyeliners are more likely to sweat off in the summer heat and hence, it is a good idea to swap them up for gel eye liners. Youngblood – Incredible Wear Gel Liner has some gorgeous color options to try out this summer.

Youngblood_Incredible_Wear_Gel_Liner_1

These gel liners glide on beautifully and stay out through day/night!

Tips and Tricks

Investing into these beauty products will sure enough melt-proof your beauty routine but some general tips and tricks can go an extra mile to really summer-proof it all!

Chilling your lipstick in the fridge can help your lippie from melting off in the heat. Conditioning your hair before cleansing your body can help prevent bacne. Using salicylic acid based products can help prevent excessive oil and treat acne in one go. Using sulphate-free shampoos can help prevent over-dried hair due to regular washing.

Fall Hair Care Routine: What To Change

       
Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

Fall Hair Care Routine: What To ChangeWe all know that with fall comes bonfires, hoodies, and pumpkin-everything, but did you know it’s also the best time to switch up your hair care routine? What kept your hair looking flawless all summer may not work for the cooler, dryer months, so it’s wise to implement new techniques and products.

This fall, keep your hair looking gorgeous and healthy with the following tips.

Invest in a Quality Conditioner

As the weather becomes colder, the humidity levels in the air tend to drop. This typically leads to dry tresses and brittle ends. To keep your hair moisturized, you’ll want to invest in a high-quality moisturizing conditioner. Hold in the shine and moisture by also investing in a leave-in conditioner on your hair’s driest days.

Seal in Moisture

While conditioning may keep your hair moisturized for a short time, you’ll want to seal it in, especially during the colder months. Without sealing in moisture, quality conditioners are next to useless in the fall. Shea butter hair masques or products containing grapeseed, argan, or coconut oil are ideal.

Wear Protective Hairstyles

Every now and then, you’ll want to protect your hair from the harsh elements of fall. Loose buns, low ponytails, and braids are styles that keep your hair away from the cold, dry air and harsh winds during the fall. On especially windy days, these come in handy, as they prevent breakage and keep your hair healthy.

Pick Up a Good Anti-Frizz Serum

Dryness often equals static, and static equals frizz. Needless to say, you’ll want to invest in a quality bottle of anti-frizz serum to prevent those flyaways from making themselves known. Also, stay away from wool scarves and coats, as this produces friction which equals static and breakage.

Don’t Wash So Often

Washing your hair everyday strips it of its natural oils. These natural oils act as a protective sealant and provide moisture to your hair. When you wash them out, you end up with dry, brittle hair that is prone to breakage. During the cool, dryer months, this problem could become triple-fold. Instead of shampooing your hair every night, skip a day or two. If your hair is too greasy after one night of not washing it, consider investing in a dry shampoo. Alternatively, you could try various styles to see which is best at hiding your oily locks.

This fall, enjoy those cool nights by the fire with a beautiful head of hair. By the time spring rolls around again, your hair will be looking its best.

Eyebrow Extensions 101

       
Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Eyebrow Extensions 101Do you ever get tired of filling your eyebrows in during your daily makeup routine? Are you more of a natural/no-makeup kind of girl, but your eyebrows are sparse? Eyebrow extensions could be just the solution for you!

Things to Know before Getting Extensions

There are three things you need to know before getting eyebrow extensions.
1. When you are researching technicians, be sure to ask whether they are licensed. This will insure that they are using the proper materials on your skin and that they were trained to put on the extensions.
2. Cost varies depending on who does the extensions, but they are usually upwards of $100.
3. Prepare to block out a couple hours of your day for the application. They can take anywhere from one and a half to two hours depending on the sparsity of your brows.

Extension Placement

After the technician cleans up your eyebrows with tweezers to remove any unwanted hair, he/she decides on the shape of the new eyebrow by taking into account the symmetry of your face. Then comes choosing the color of the brow hairs and finally, application.

There is no pain involved in the procedure of applying the hair to the eyebrow area. Each hair is applied with surgical glue one-by-one until the desired thickness is achieved. The technician’s ultimate goal is to make your eyebrows look as natural as possible from the moment you leave their chair to when you come back in for a fill (more on that below).

How to Maintain Extensions

If you are gentle with the hairs and do not tug at them or scrub them vigorously with a washcloth, they will last up to three weeks. As the hairs start to fall out, a fill will be needed where the technician goes back in and fills the areas where hair has fallen out of the eyebrow. The process of shedding the hairs is slow, as they do not each fall out at the same time, which allows the process to look more natural. If you decide you no longer want the extensions and do not want to wait for the falling out process, the technician call apply an oil that will remove them quickly and easily.

Overall, if you have the money to spare and a few hours, eyebrow extensions are a great addition to a bare or makeup-enhanced face. They may take a bit to get used to, but you’ll soon have the Kylie Jenner eyebrows you’ve always wanted.

Ingrown Hair SOS!

       
Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Ingrown Hair SOS!There’s nothing more irritating — not to mention painful — than discovering an unsightly ingrown hair has set up shop underneath your skin. Ingrown hairs are raised, pus-filled red bumps that occur when dead skin becomes trapped inside the hair follicle, forcing the hair to grow underneath the skin. Though sometimes, ingrown hairs, just like zits, can go away in their own time, if left to their own devices for too long there is a chance they could become infected and lead to scarring. So remember: hands off! We’ll show you the steps and products you’ll need to banish ingrown hairs for good.

Often, the best way to treat ingrown hairs is to prevent them from showing up in the first place. This means taking your time when shaving, and using a high-quality shaving cream. For ladies, I like the Whish Coconut Milk Shave Cream with Hair Inhibitor, which is perfect for sensitive skin and is formulated to ensure it won’t dry out skin. For the gentlemen, I’d recommend anything from The Art of Shaving, especially their luxurious Sandalwood Essential Oil Shaving Cream. If you really want to indulge, treat yourself to a complete shaving overhaul by picking up their Starter Kit, which includes a shaving brush, pre-shave oil, shaving cream, and aftershave balm. If you want to go the extra mile, you can even apply Dermalogica’s Pre-Shave Guard before you get started. It’s marketed towards men, but women can certainly benefit from it as well. Of course, certain types of hair, especially coarse and curly locks, are more prone to ingrown hairs than finer strands.

After shaving, immediately apply a balm to the area. I have two favorites to ensure post-shaving bliss. The first is Dermalogica’s Post-Shave Balm, which is formulated to specifically prevent ingrown hairs and is fragrance-free. If I’m in the mood for something a bit scented, I slather on Shaveworks’ Cool Fix, which helps to free trapped hair as well as to kill any bacteria underneath the skin.

Still, sometimes you can do everything right and still get an ingrown hair, especially if you have sensitive skin. If one shows up, we recommend not trying to dig it out yourself. If you just can’t resist, be sure to place a hot towel on the affected area to open the pores and soothe the skin, then remove the hair with tweezers like the ones in this Anthony grooming tool kit. Still, it’s really better to see a doctor, who may recommend antibiotics or other medication to reduce swelling and prevent infection.

Don’t let an ingrown hair get in the way of a day at the beach this summer!

Spotlight on Fekkai Soleil Collection

       
Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

Spotlight on Fekkai Soleil CollectionThe sun can be as brutal to your hair as it is to your skin — dulling its radiance and even fading its color. Keep your looking its best by indulging it before and after sun exposure with Frederic Fekkai’s Soliel Collection. The well-known celebrity stylist uses his experience to blend before- and after-sun products that offer extra hydration and shine to hair that’s been exposed to the sun and help you keep those straight-from-the-beach waves. Bonus: All Soliel products carry the citrusy fragrance of St. Barths in the Caribbean.

Pre-Soliel Hair Mist

Whether you’re on your usual daily rounds or getting in some well-deserved beach time, sun can damage your hair on any day, dehydrating it and fading the color. Before you step outside, use this lightweight mist — made with a UV filter — to keep the sun’s rays at bay. Infused with sunflower oil, Per-Soliel Hair Mist will leave your hair radiant and shiny. Be sure to take some with you wherever you go — it works best if you reapply it several times during your activity in the sun.

Apres Soliel Hair Creme

Already have sun damage? Quench it by working Apres Soliel Hair Creme’s multitasking creme into dull or dry locks. Your hair will go from blah to beautiful as the creme’s sunflower-oil base smoothes frizz, hydrates dry hair, and replenishes shine. The light citrus scent and luxuriant, radiant results will have you thinking you’ve just been to Frederic Fekkai’s ritzy St. Barths salon, even if you’ve never left home.

Soliel Beach Waves Spray

Get that tousled, straight-from-the-beach look beloved by celebrities any time with this invisible spray that adds texture, volume, and that elusive, citrusy St. Barths scent while controlling frizz. Stylist Frederic Fekkai created the “done undone” look of sea-breeze-tousled locks, so it stands to reason his Soliel Beach Waves Spray should be a favorite with beauty editors, stylists, and others in the know about great, attention-getting hair.

Soleil Hair Fragrance Mist L’Air de St. Barths

Stylist Frederic Fekkai may have done the impossible with this spray — he may have captured the essence of the Caribbean sun in a bottle. Citrusy and redolent of Caribbean sun, sea, and sand, Soleil Hair Fragrance Mist L’Air de St. Barths can freshen your hair between washings or just evoke happy beach memories. A spritz will tame frizz and refresh your do as well as restore its shine, giving you the bright, bouncy, noticeable, fresh-smelling hair you crave.

There’s an old saying that your hair is your crowning glory. With Frederic Fekkai’s Soliel Collection, your hair will look and smell its sun-kissed best every day, rain or shine.

Rainbow Hair Trend

       
Friday, May 8th, 2015

Rainbow Hair TrendOne of the most popular hairstyles to embrace this season is rainbow hair that offers a fun and eclectic look. From purple to pink, there are a number of colors to incorporate into your locks for a style that stands out in a crowd. The most alluring part of the rainbow hair trend is the ability to create a variety of different looks and truly make it your own for a unique design.

The rainbow hair trend is edgy and a bit hardcore for girls who want to get playful with their mane. Celebrities like Kylie Jenner have rocked all-blue hair at Coachella for a mermaid style that is plenty daring. Other stars like Kelly Osbourne and Katy Perry have opted for ombre shades that blend together. Most recently, Julianne Hough dyed her hair all-pink and Hilary Duff swapped her blonde hair for an all-blue shade.

For the girls who are afraid to commit, colored rainbow hair extensions are available for a temporary option that can easily be clipped in. They’re the perfect style when heading out for a concert or spending time by the pool outdoors. The look is increasingly popular after spring’s arrival for a great way to incorporate more colors into your appearance.

Neon colors are also commonly seen and exhibit a bold look that nods to the ’90s. Kesha was recently spotted sporting neon ombre locks while Demi Lovato created a similar style with ombre blue hair that looks similar to the ocean. Some girls are even putting their own twist on rainbow hair by adding gobs of glitter to create an eye-catching design that truly pops.

After coloring the hair a bright shade, it’s important to preserve the dye and prevent it from fading by using professional hair products. It’s crucial to use color care shampoo that is safe on the scalp and will also prevent the hair from becoming brittle or dry due to the harsh chemicals of the dye. Many color care shampoos contain grapeseed oil to properly hydrate and moisturize the hair strands. Investing in the right shampoo will protect the color from fading and will prevent having to get it dyed even sooner just to maintain the look.

Others should invest in a scalp treatment to prevent damage or split ends from occurring due to the harsh chemicals that are used to create the rainbow hair trend. Shea hair masks are considered one of the most effective products on the market by replenishing the moisture of the hair and by offering color maintenance. To ensure that the hair is styled professionally and doesn’t look drab after the rainbow dye, clay pomade is perfect for holding the shape of the style throughout the day.

Spring Hair Color Trends

       
Friday, March 27th, 2015

Spring Hair Color TrendsAs the doldrums of winter fade and Spring heats up, new hair color trends abound to compliment the season. Several shades and styles are gaining popularity, such as white-blonde shades, copper and the intermingling styles of ombre and ecaille.

Platinum Blonde

Dyeing hair platinum blonde is the perfect trend for Spring, as a brighter color can correspond to the brighter, longer days. If a trendsetter has the skin tone to be able to rock this super-light blonde, it is gorgeous. People with fair, cool skin tones look lovely with the platinum blonde hue. Dark skin tones should generally steer clear, although certain warm and olive tones can pull of this style beautifully. Check with a beauty and hair consultant before making your final decision, as going platinum blonde can be a drastic change regardless of skin type or previous experimentations with color.

Platinum blonde hair also has a tendency toward dryness, so those donning this type of coif will want to keep their tresses extra moisturized with conditioners and oil-based styling products.

Copper Red

Once considered a rarity amongst celebrities and in salons, this fiery hue has been making its way onto the scalps of many consumers and A-listers. Coppery reds are especially popular right now, although there are several different shades and ranges of intensity within the red color family. Consult with a stylist to find out which shade is best for your skin stone.

Gorgeous and vibrant, red color dyes are–sadly–the fastest hue to fade and/or wash out. To preserve the color as long as possible, choose some quality color protective shampoos and products.

Ombre

The nation mourned when Jared Leto chopped off his signature ombre cascade. This Spring, many will want to continue the trend, which features darker hair at the roots fading into lighter hues at the ends. When selecting a stylist, be sure it is someone who has experience with this type of dye job and leaf through some different photos of your preferred ombre look beforehand. When done correctly, ombre is a beautiful, natural look that offers body and dimension to color. If done wrong, the look can simply appear as an exaggerated display of one neglecting root touch-ups.

Ecaille

Similar to ombre, ecaille is a style that originated in France and features various intermingling tones throughout the hair. This look normally features colors within the different family of different shades. A caramel brown can be laced with golden blondes in order to create natural dimension. Talk to a stylist about best colors to match your skin tone before deciding which hues to request in order to achieve the look.

The Top Five Hair Hacks

       
Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

The Top Five Hair HacksWhen your hair isn’t cooperating, it’s hard to feel your best. Your stylist might try to sell you on tons of treatments, but there are tons of hair hacks that you can do in your own home for a wide array of basic hair problems. Here are five hair concerns and five hacks that will help you to banish these problems for good.

Problem One: Dry, Split Ends

The Hack: If you have dry and split ends but don’t have time to see your stylist, you can mask the solution by using oil. Just a few drops of oil, rubbed into your hands and then pressed against your ends, will create the illusion of a sealed cuticle. Nothing can fix split ends, but using oil on your ends can mask their appearance. If the idea of putting oil in your hair seems a bit too freaky, try a cream with oil mixed in, like the Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Creme.

Problem Two: A Scalp That Feels Dry, But Looks Greasy

The Hack: If frequent shampooing has left your scalp feeling dry, then it might be time to cut back to once or twice a week. However, sometimes even if your scalp feels dry, it might look greasy. This is why every woman should have a can of dry shampoo in her arsenal. Dry shampoo soaks up oil at the scalp, but isn’t as drying as actual shampoo. Try the Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo.

Problem Three: Visible Roots

The Hack: If your roots are showing but you still have weeks before your next color session, try a concealing hair powder like the Oscar Blandi Pronto Hair Shadow Root Concealing Kit. This concealing powder is applied with a brush, just like you would apply powdered makeup to your face. No one will be able to tell that you’re overdue for an appointment with your colorist.

Problem Four: You’ve Been Shampooing Less, And Your Hair Smells Like Sweat

The Hack: More and more women are shampooing less in order to keep their hair naturally hydrated and vibrant. However, even with shampoo, sometimes our hair can start to smell a little off if we haven’t shampooed in a while. Luckily, there are plenty of new hair-specific perfumes on the market. Try a hair fragrance mist like this one from Fekkai.

Problem Five: No Product or Treatment Seems To Help Your Hair

The Hack: If your hair doesn’t seem to respond to any product or styling treatment, then it might be time to consider treating it from the inside. Add a hair, skin and nail supplement like the Russell Organics Power Repair For Skin, Nails and Hair to your daily regimen. Over time, you’ll start to see improved growth and volume.

Keeping your hair gorgeous can be tricky. However, if you incorporate these hair hacks into your routine, you’ll have better, shinier hair in no time.

The Only Tool You Need for Gorgeous Sexy HairWith the markets overwhelmed with hair products and tools that claim to really work, it can be intimidating to know where to begin in a shopping experience. Around every corner is a new product promising frizz minimization or volume induction, yet never one that seems to tackle all areas of styling needs. Wouldn’t it be nice to get that gorgeous and sexy hair with just one tool? Fortunately, there is a tool out there that makes it possible.

Why it’s Great?

Not only is it easy to use, this is a product unique to its market. The variety of styling options that come along with the curling system are only made possible by its interchangeable barrels. Traditional curling irons often induce breakage, creases, and uncomely lines within the hair, but this is prevented when using the PYT FP Clip Free Curling System. Its efficient use cuts down the time it takes to style hair by nearly half the time of its competitors. In ten seconds the curling system is heated and ready to use. It is capable of reaching four hundred degrees Fahrenheit, but the temperature is customizable depending on the user or stylist.

Tourmaline also gives off a natural source of infrared heat and negative ions, which help to lock in moisture while creating smooth, shiny curls—frizz free!
