BLOW DRY TOOLS AND TIPS YOU NEED

Let’s face it. Achieving a salon blow out at home is impossible. There. I said it. Impossible. I’m not even going to claim that there’s anything you can possibly do to achieve it because that is simply a lie. Unless you grow a third arm, you cannot get the same volume, tension, bounciness, curls, or whatever you want with just a brush and a dryer. BUT, there are a few things you can do to achieve a good enough blow out. Let me explain….

PINK IS A NEUTRAL FOR YOUR LIPS!

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend – I spent mine researching and playing with new beauty products, per usual. My fave thing is definitely a sweet little pink lip for spring and summer. One shade deeper and you get mauve, one shade lighter and you get nude – so I’m loving the whole spectrum! What I love about all the options is that they are just soft enough to be neutrals and go with everything but give you a nice little touch of color for the warmer months.

Everyone listen up! Have you tried the new Essie Gel Couture polish? It’s a game-changer in the world of at-home manicures. After weeks of listening to my sister telling me how great it was, I finally tried it and I’m a convert. I’ve been looking for a solution to getting gel manicures in the salon for two reasons – expense and time. I simply can’t afford to spend too much of either right now. This nail polish is the answer! 

DERMALOGICA SUPERFOLIANT AND PHYTO REPLENISH OIL

Over the last couple months, Dermalogica has been churning out some amazing new products that I’ve been lucky enough to try – the Daily Superfoliant gentle scrub charcoal powder and the Phyto Replenish Oil. Both have pleasantly surprised me. I’ve known of the brand for a long time because a lot of spas carry their products (which means they are really good if estheticians love them!).  But what I never really knew is that their big focus is on fighting environmental hazards that can bother, clog, and age your skin. Did you know that pollution isn’t just in urban areas? Sure it’s in smog and cigarette smoke, of course, but it’s also near farmland, construction sites, even in homes (like in paint)! HELLO AGE-ACCELERATORS!!

HOW TO GET THE HAIR COLOR (AND …

Have you ever experienced this: you go to the salon so excited to get your hair colored, and you walk out liking it but not loving it because it just wasn’t quite what you wanted? You’re not alone! This happens all the time and the reason why is because YOU, the client, didn’t walk into your appointment fully prepared to ask for exactly what you want.
