Fashion/Hair/Makeup: Hair Secrets!

DYI Ombre Hair

eBay Fashion LookBook New York City Photoshoot with Lucky Magazine

beauty.about.com

According to, http://www.stylelist.com, ” Well this kit will do the trick: It can make you up to four shades lighter. With a multi-prong brush to enable even distribution and the perfect formula consistency (viscous enough to deposit onto hair but not so liquid-y that it “bleeds onto the rest of the hair,”) L’Oréal Paris’s new kit is already a hit outside of the U.S., where it’s been raved about by bloggers. Here are Christophe’s tips for perfect, at-home application:

1. Prep: Make sure your hair isn’t tangled. You’ll need smooth hair to brush the product through.

2. Application: If you aren’t sure where to begin the fade, start by your mouth. You can control the color gradation from your natural base, depending on how long you leave the product in (anywhere between 20-45 minutes.) Do a test strand, aiming for 20 minutes and check it every 5 minutes to see how you like the color.

3. Worried about brassiness? If you only want a slight color change, 20 minutes will be your ideal time frame. To make sure your hair color is lifted enough and you bypass that dreaded orange phase, you may need 40-45 minutes.

4. For a more delicate application, wield the brush vertically, to coat only specific strands. For a more intense look, wield the brush horizontally to cover more ground.

5. Don’t get too carried away with too many light pieces. It’s the contrast that makes ombré look the best. “It’ll be like chocolate. You’ll get so happy as you’re doing it, you’ll keep adding it like, mm, munch, this is so good. But you’ll have to control yourself so you don’t get carried away.” So you heard it from Christophe: Like all good things, ombré is best enjoyed in moderation.”

Anti-Freeze

According to, Chris Reidy, Globe Staff, with http://www.boston.com/,”MIT professor Robert Langer was recently awarded the 2013 Presidential Medal of Technology and Innovation, and his innovations include an anti-frizz technology that he and his team developed for hair-care products now being pitched by Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston.”

Get the facts about Living Proof!

“OFPMA is a superior way to care for and style hair; better than any of the conventional technologies that exist in the market, like silicone and oils.

This brilliantly bulletproof molecule creates an exquisitely thin, invisible shield around every hair strand. With this shield:

  • hair becomes healthier over time
  • hair is strengthened and protected from daily assaults like brushing and washing
  • hair balances the flow of moisture in and out of strands, so damaging moisture flux is controlled
  • hair fights off humidity, so frizz is stopped in its tracks
  • hair repels oil and dirt so it stays cleaner, longer
  • hair texture is polished into a smooth, glossy lustre

They put OFPMA in almost all of our Living Proof products because every head of hair deserves the best. Without compromise.”

“PBAE’s microscopic pattern of thickening dots sit on the surface of the hair, creating the much needed friction and space between every fine hair strand without any of the damage or baggage of conventional technologies. These thickening dots have endurance and don’t break down, even as you run your fingers through your locks, making fullness completely revivable and renewable.

With PBAE:

  • Hair behaves like full, thick hair with body and volume
  • Hair has volume and texture that is revisable and long lasting”

Hair Mask Treatment:

According to, http://www.kouhl.com, using this formula for a hair mask will get your locks looking haute!

Instructions:

  1. “In an empty plastic bottle, mix 1/2 a cup of apple cider vinegar with 4 cups of water and pour over your hair after shampooing.”
  2. “Leave it in for 30 seconds and then rinse your hair with cold water to seal the shin.”

Interior Design: Are you in the know about Green?

Interior Design: Are you in the know about Green?

“Green, which is Nature’s colour, is restful, soothing, cheerful, and health-giving.” – Paul Brunton

The psychology of Green

According to, http://www.about.com, Green has many interesting psychological effects.

“Green also represents tranquility, good luck, health, and jealousy.

Researchers have also found that green can improve reading ability. Some students may find that laying a transparent sheet of green paper over reading material increases reading speed and comprehension.

Green has long been a symbol of fertility and was once the preferred color choice for wedding gowns in the 15th-century. Even today, green M & M’s (an American chocolate candy) are said to send a sexual message.

Green is often used in decorating for its calming effect. For example, guests waiting to appear on television programs often wait in a “green room” to relax.

Green is thought to relieve stress and help heal. Those who have a green work environment experience fewer stomachaches.”

Green is a Trendy Color for Spring 2013

Feel instantly calmer, and relaxed when you enter in to these rooms.

Fashion/Hair/Makeup: Flashion forward with Metallics!

Metallics are all the rage this Spring 2013 Season! Are you flashion forward?

Metallic  Clothing

You will find any piece of clothing you can think of that is metallic. So how to wear? Make sure you break it up. The same way you would wear a print, you wear metallic items. If you have a metallic jacket, wear it with a sequin or plan dress. The focus should be on the one piece of metallic clothing item, not that you look like a roll of tin foil.

There is so much beauty we can take from nature. I love the beautiful and vibrant colors and patterns of the waves and sky. Will this color palette be the new them of your bathroom? How will you make this work so it fits your style? Take some time to look through images of nature. You will be surprised how much design inspiration you will get. Nurturing your time with nature will breed beautiful and unique designs that will have your friends oohing and awing over!

All the colors of the seasons

Fall is the prime time to gather up your inspiration for design. It is one of my favorite times, to look at all the beautiful and vibrant colors nature has to offer. Will this color scheme be your next cabin theme for your walls and furniture? Spend time thinking about what this personally inspires you to design and you will find a perfect, custom-made design concept for you.

Honey Comb

Raw Honey

www.ifood.tv –

How will you see this? Look beyond the obvious and into the uniqueness that it can bring for your next design concept. How can you manipulate this basic honeycomb into a form of art or design concept? Maybe this will be your next wall paper for your yellow and white kitchen? You can have a bee-themed kitchen, placing black accent pieces through out your white kitchen, with yellow walls. Place honey combs framed around the wall. Or think a bit out side the box with it. don’t be so literal with it. Then what does it mean to you?

“Art”-n’t you inspired?

Graceful beauty

Beautiful, swirls of design, form to make a peacock-like design. What does this mean to you? Is is art? Why? Is it only art because someone said it is? Who i s the true critic when it comes to evaluating art? I believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder in all situations. If you look at this and see that maybe a small child could of down this, it diminishes it’s value and therefore is not beautiful to you. However, if you look at this and feel that you love the brush stocks and freshness it brings to the image of a well talked about animal, peacock, it is beautiful to you. The point is, it’s up to you, you are the designer.  Maybe this will be the color scheme for your child’s room and the designs of the painting will form designs on your child’s bedroom wall. Are you inspired?

Sad women, peaceful women?

www.shredesign.com

Remembering that the meaning of art is up to the individual viewing it, what do you see here? I see a women at peace and in deep thought. I think of creating a space, that is calm and peaceful. Maybe placing images of people in history and or in my life that grant me deep peace. I will likely find my favorite quotes and frame those. “Art”-n’t you inspired?

Fashion

Color Blocked

Remember, fashion is art. It is a method to stating what the artist was feeling and thinking. It is the most popular form of art these days. What was the artist/designer thinking here? Maybe he/she was thinking, of nature, and if you look at a picture of it, you will see separation of beautiful colors. What are you thinking when you look at it? Maybe you will color block your walls in your living room, or purchase a color-blocked painting?
