Wake Up With Curls (No-Heat)

25 Feb

For those of you who use a curling iron, I assure you that with this no-heat curling method, you will toss your curler out the window. Not bluffing guys, this is what I’ve been doing with my hair for the past week or so and it works magic. I don’t like to share my beauty secrets with everyone but since all of my readers and followers are my best friends, I’ll let you in on the hair secret. 🙂 A lot of people actually already know about this awesome hair curling method but if you don’t, here are the steps:

Step 1)

Shower or dampen your hair and take a headband that circles or goes all the way around your head and put it over your hair, hippy style.

Step 2: Take a section of hair, right underneath the headband in the front. Depending on how thick you want your curl to be, should be the thickness of the strand, so if you want big fat curls take a large chunk of hair.

Step 3:

Next take that strand of hair and loop it under the headband.

Step 4: Now you add on another section of hair and also loop it under. Continue wrapping the hair until you get to the back of your head.

 

Step 5: Do the same thing to the other side of your head until you reach the nape of your neck.

Step 6: Tuck in any lose strands, secure with bobby pins if needed and hit the hay! (I just had to put a picture of Sleeping Beauty).

Step 6: Wake up with cute bouncy curls that you can be proud of! Lock in with hair spray.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found it helpful! Let me know if you have used it before or if you are planning on it!

Kendall Jenner Walks Marc Jacobs

15 Feb

A new teen model is on the rise in the fashion world. Kendall Jenner is pushing her fellow family members off the spotlight and is shining through and being accepted in the high fashion industry. The gorgeous brunette has been talking about her love for modelling since forever and now her dream is finally coming true! Kendall was barely recognizable backstage because her hair and makeup completely transformed her from being an 18 year old Californian to an awesome and superb looking model. As much as I would love to say cheers to her, it’s a little bit difficult considering that she really had everything handed to her on a silver platter in her career. It certainly doesn’t hurt that her crazy family has so many connections and can really get anything they want. Whereas, other people have to work really hard to be discovered or book shows. And sure the older Kardashians certainly have worked a lot in their lifetime, so maybe they deserve some of the things they get, but has Kendall really experienced everything that a regular hard working model has? Of course not! Do you think she has it too easy as well?

Kendall Jenner

Kendall walked the Marc Jacobs fashion show, sporting a short wig and severe makeup that made her eyebrows perform the disappearing act. Jenner walked the catwalk in a completely see-through long sleeve V-neck sweater, sans bra. I am personally not exactly a fan of Kendall’s outfit but it looks pretty cool with everything including the hair and makeup put together. The outfit is kind of awkward but that was probably the point, since it was a very uncomfortable show for the viewer to sit through in general, from everything to the music/creepy voicing to the set.There has been a lot of outrage and criticism over Kendall baring her chest, but honestly it does not bug me one single bit. I think we are all grown up and mature enough to handle a bare chest covered by see-through fabric on a high fashion runway. I would understand if 12 year olds were disgusted over this, but that’s because they don’t know better. Adults and teens who understand fashion however should be able to understand that Kendall did not pick out her own outfit. And she wouldn’t object to anything that the designer picked for her because a model’s job is to showcase anything that the designer chooses to put on them. I think she did an awesome job and she was a good sport, and her fans should be proud of her for being strong and confident. Maybe Kendall can even teach the other Kardashians, Kim especially, about beauty and self confidence. Go Kendall!

Blonde To Brunette

9 Feb

Hello lovely readers,

Before I start this post I would like to apologize for being late on my posts lately, unfortunately I have been quite busy with schoolwork and activities.

An extreme change in hair color can alter your entire look, however dying your hair from blond to brown is probably the best hair color change that there really is. Countless celebrities have gone through with this and they have shown that it looks fabulous on them. Even if it didn’t improve appearance, the brown hair certainly did not look worse. I have observed that brown hair can make people look more mature, intelligent, and can frame and thin your face. If you have dirty blond hair and dark brown hair this is a sign that you would look great with brown hair, but if you have very light hair (including your eyebrows and lashes) brown hair may be more difficult for you to pull off. Katy Perry and famous actress Leighten Meester, are my favorite blonde beauties that have gone to the dark side. They both have very delicate and pretty facial features so they can basically pull off any hair color, however the rich chocolate color truly does look awesome on them.
