Get Kylie Jenner’s Hair At Home With Professional Results

Gorgeous at 17! The youngest of the Kardashian clan is becoming a celebrity in her own way. The key ingredient in her rising success is that anyone can relate to her. Kylie could be the girl next door and her very stylish not so pretentious locks could be easily imitated at home. No, we’re not kidding, you can totally do this at home! Getting Started Trim your hair: the perfect hair coloring will only be reached by allowing your precious hair to recover from previous bleaching. So chop chop the ends and get ready to pick a hairstyle that suits your face shape and facial features. Although a DIY hair-dying venture surely involves working on your own most of the time, you might need an extra pair of hands to reach where you cannot, guaranteeing a better outcome for your hair style. Color wise, the two main things to take into account are not only the color chosen but also which product brand you will trust. You can take your pick from a wide range of alternatives such as Wella, Majirel, L’Oreal, Lush, Garnier and Manic Panic which carries a vast array of colors that go from neon to pastel, to super bright, to tame and sultry. Down With The Bleaching This is an easier step for natural blondes. Most stylists suggest you resort to a purple shampoo which will eliminate any orange‐range hair residue in your hair which might alter the color you are after. Now, if you’re a dark‐haired beauty, you will need some extra help from a mix of powder bleach and cream developer. The powder bleach has a color stripping power while the cream developer will enhance the power bleach qualities to get rid of your original hair color. Cream developer options vary from 10 to 40 volumes, with 10 being the slowest lifter to 40 being the fastest and therefore the most abrasive one. If your hair is thin then 20 is highly recommended. If your hair is too dark and thick, you should begin with a 30 volume developer. Stay Alert! This is the most challenging step in the process which blondes have it easy again. Bleaching will test your limits and you may have to do it more than once if your hair is dark. Mix equal parts of 30 volume developer with bleaching powder, until you lighten your hair to a really light blonde shade in about 40 to 50 minutes. After this, the hair will break, so stay alert and keep checking up on the mirror until you’ve reached the desired shade of blonde in order to dye it green afterwards. Apply the mix on your ends and middle parts. Put on a TV show episode that lasts 20 minutes, and set up an alarm...

Not You Again: Period Survival 101

The curse, that time, monthlies, menses, Aunt Flo, Mr. Monthly Visitor … these are just some of the ways women describe their menstrual cycle. But regardless of what you call it, the symptoms and discomfort are always the same every month. Soon the people around you notice you going from Miss Congeniality to super bitch. But that’s their problem not yours. You need to concentrate on how you’re going to survive the symptoms. After all, menopause is still years, if not decades away and you deserve relief now! Great complexion is one of women’s greatest assets but when the menses strike, our hormones go all out of whack. And soon enough we’re producing more testosterone than a 13 year old boy. This causes your skin to produce excess oil, causing period acne. The best way to cope with it is by buying acne fighting products like face wash that unclogs pores and cleanses the skin of excess oil. While these won’t completely solve the issue, it will definitely keep it under control until Mr. Monthly goes away. If all else fails you can always buy a concealer or a blemish stick to make the zits a little less obvious. If you suffer from heavy bleeding you need to first understand why it happens and how long you can expect it to last. The fact is that it often happens at the beginning of your menstrual cycle when the lining of the uterine wall starts to shed. I know! Ouch! On some occasions it can happen during the middle of your cycle. It’s annoying because you start to feel like an 80 year old that constantly needs to check herself. Leakage is at times unavoidable and we have to accept that. So you should stock up on lots of pads and tampons because you will need it. If you’re on your feet for long periods of time, wear dark colors in case you leak. This way your friends, co-workers, or the general passerby will not see what’s happening to you. Bring an extra pair of jeans just in case you need to change too. Also, bathe often because with heavy period comes the stench of blood, which can ruin your social life almost as badly as a bad attitude. Now the next time someone accuses you of being a bitch tell them to chill because the bloating and the pain is going to make your cranky. Add to that the hormone imbalance which forces you to retain fluid and you’ll be dealing with discomfort that will last for days along with your bad mood. So how can you reduce all...

It’s not like the ‘Frozen’ look is in this season, or is it? There are many ways to still look fashionable in the winter with awesome hair. Leave the beanie hats, and hoodies behind. Let those perfect locks of hair embrace the winter cold air. Here are some simple hairstyles that will make your winter hair season tangle-free and hassle-free. Hairstyle 1: Bob – Any length works well when it comes to the hair bob in the winter. I bet it will even look good bobsledding. Taylor Swift makes it look good in the winter. Hairstyle 2: Bun – Tie it up in a bun. Simple, and to the point; plus you get to eat your cinnamon bun too without the cold wind blowing your hair into your mouth.

Just comb it with your fingers and you are good to go x-mas shopping. Hairstyle 6: Curly – Loose curly hair is a must have when it comes to winter hairstyles. I just love the bounce and how it looks when snow falls on it. Hairstyle 7: Short/Spiky – If Kristen Stewart can look rocker chic with her new do for the winter, then so can you. Plus, there really is not a lot to do in the maintenance area. Hairstyle 8: Sleek – Pass some gel through your hair with a comb. Sleek it to the back and you have a stylish yet casual hair-do for any work related holiday party. Hairstyle 9: Short Bangs – This hairstyle goes well with short or long hair.

Are You Making These 4 Skincare Mistakes?

Are You Making These 4 Skincare Mistakes?

Whether you have flawless skin or a few pimples here and there, it is very important to take good care of your skin. If your skin is well taken care of, you will look more youthful and beautiful. However, it can be easy to make a mistake without knowing it. Here are four skincare mistakes that you should avoid making. Only Wear Sunscreen During the Summer The sun during the summer is much more intense, but that does not mean you can’t get sunburned during the cooler months. It is important to apply sunscreen to your skin 365 days a year. Make sure the sunscreen contains an SPF of at least 30. If you don’t protect your skin with sunscreen all the time, you can develop coarse skin and premature wrinkles. Exfoliating Too Much Yes, there is such a thing as exfoliating too much. When you exfoliate too much, you strip your skin of all its natural oils, leaving you with very dry and irritated skin. Try not to exfoliate your skin more than once or twice a week. Be gentle while exfoliating; scrubbing your skin too hard can irritate it. Not Using a Product Long Enough Have you ever stopped using a skincare product after just a couple of days because you didn’t see results? If so, you are definitely not alone. Many people are impatient when it comes to skincare products. However, you should give a product a chance for at least a month before giving up on it. Not Washing Your Face At Night Not washing your face at night is a big mistake, especially if you wear makeup. If you don’t wash all of the gunk off your face, oil and bacteria will get stuck in your skin, leading to breakouts. If you were out late and are too tired to wash your face, at least wipe it with some moist towelettes. If you have made any the mistakes above, do not feel too bad. If you do not make them a habit, your skin should stay in good shape. ~Katya...
