Don’t Let Split Ends Ruin Your Style Routine

Don’t let split ends ruin your style routine.  Follow these four tricks to prevent split ends:

  • Start using strengthening shampoos and conditioners, to make the hair stronger and less prone to split ends.
  • Brush your hair gently! Brushing your hair in a hurry can cause hair breakage and leave your hair disheveled and uneven.  Brush slowly, and thoroughly to distribute the natural oils evenly throughout the hair.
  • If you’re having a bad breakage day, use some Argan oil on the tips of your hair. This oil will smooth out the breaks and create and even-looking finish.
  • Try to use heat style less often.  Over styling with heating products is the main cause of hair breakage and split ends.  If you must use them then apply a conditioner or heat-protectant before hand.

Throwback Tuesday: Graphic Tees

Graphic tees don’t have to be grunge; in fact, they can be used in outfits to create a classic look. Here are some ways to dress up this look:

  • Add a blazer on top! Instantly create a classy look when you pair your graphic tee with a blazer. 
  • When you pair the tee with a flowy, floral skirt, you achieve a feminine and flirty look.
  • Wear a pair of dress shorts with the tee to create a balanced look.  The tee and shorts work well together and work great for day or night looks.

Top Knots

Top knots are the perfect go-to look for those days that our hair isn’t up to our highest standards.  Unlike the ballerina bun, this look is more textured and has a more sophisticated vibe.  On your days between washes give this look a try! 

If you’re feeling even more daring, try and spice up the top knot look. You can do a half up top knot, to add some length and color to the look. This alternative version of the top knot is a bit more edgy and can work with both dressed up and casual looks.

Or you can add some braids into the hairstyle. Little peek-a-boo braids are a fun twist to the hairstyle that adds a lot of personality to the look. image

Going Chic with Wide Leg Pants

Wide led pants are essential for creating a chic and stylish look. The wide leg elongates the leg and makes you appear taller, so it’s perfect for women of all heights. Try it in a solid color, or go bolder with a fun pattern.  Top it off with a chunky bracelet or a statement necklace and your look is complete.

Lipstick Alternatives

We understand that not everyone likes wearing lipstick. But, that doesn’t mean you should neglect your lips! Here are some alternatives to lipstick:

  • Lip Gloss makes your lip smooth and shiny and requires very little touching up throughout the day.  It doesn’t require bold colors, but try and find one with just a bit color to add a little dimension to your makeup.
  • Sheen Lipstick! Though lipstick is part of the name, it’s not like the traditional ones that you’re used to.  Sheen lipsticks are made of a thinner consistency and are weightless on your lips.  Go bold with your color choice, or find one that compliments your skin tone.  The choice is yours.

  • Tinted lip balm are essentially the exact same as the chapstick that you normally wear, except they add a hint of color to your lips.
