Friday, November 29, 2013
During those occasional mornings when the snooze button gets the best of you, don’t worry about being a bed head the rest of the day. If you don’t have time to do our favorite  DIY hairstyles, try these hair tricks that all take a few minutes to do!
With these easy hair ideas, your hair will look hot, and no one will ever know you slept in!

Get Rid of Grease
Beat oily “second day” hair with this easy trick: grab some baby powder if you’re light-haired or matte bronzer if you’re a brunette and apply it to your roots with a big fluffy makeup brush. (Or use dry shampoo.) This absorbs grease and makes your hair look fresh. Then just fix any stray strands with a flat iron, shake out your hair, and go.

Do a Messy Bun
This is the basic go-to staple for most girls because it takes two seconds. Gather your hair on top of your head and wrap an elastic band around 2-3 times. Next, shape the bun with a few bobby pins that match your hair color, pull out a few ends to make it messier, and finish with a spray of hairspray.

Do a Front Hair Poof
This popular hairstyle is a great way to hide bangs you might be growing out, and is also very simple to do. Just separate the section of hair from temple to temple, tease it with a fine-toothed comb and secure with two bobby pins in an X. If your hair won’t stay in the bobby pins, tease the section more or use four pins

French Braid Sideways
This style is best if you’re good at French braiding, but with practice anyone can do it. Part your hair to the side then French braid across your hairline, securing with a clear elastic. This look is boho chic so leave the rest of your hair messy. If you have natural waves, even better. 

Slip on a Headband
For an elegant style, smooth out your hair with a brush, then pull on a wide headband to cover up messier strands and look instantly polished. Try a shiny patent leather headband in an outfit-coordinating shade for a super-trendy look that’s very right-now.

This hair style is simple and one can make it quickly at home. This style is perfect for young girls and you look beautiful in 5 minutes. The process to this hair style simply pull back your hair into a ponytail and set it lower high as you prefer .One’s can also use a best quality of hair spray to set their hair in good way.

 Make waves overnight
For gorgeous, loose waves the good news is you don't have to invest much time. Braid damp hair before bed and you'll wake up with beach-worthy waves. Make sure your hair is braided tightly so your hair doesn't frizz.

Knot Your Average Pony
If you can tie a shoelace, you can perfect this gorgeous hair style. Just tie two strands of hair in a knot and secure with a clear tie. Tease the final style a bit to look right on point

Would You Wear… Holographic Nail Polish?

Friday, November 22, 2013
From glitter and metallic to matte and foil finishes, nail polish trends seem to be getting more and more outrageous.

In case you’re a bit unsure on the difference between metallic and holographic, metallic is a colour that shimmers, while holographics take shine a step further by having other colours buried underneath, which you can see in 3D, reflected in various lighting.

Holographic nails use the sunlight to reflect and make swirls and shimmers of rainbow colours, playing with our eyes depending on how the light hits them.  Who doesn’t want to have ever-changing nail art? Whether going out to dinner, to a movie, or the beach, these colours work flawlessly.

Would you wear holographic nail polish?

Or is this look too dramatic for your taste? If you love this trend, how would you wear it? Have you tried any of the colours above? Leave a comment below and let us know!
