BRAVE WINDY WEATHER HEAD-ON!

BRAVE WINDY WEATHER HEAD-ON: TAMING FLYAWAY HAIR FROM JOHNATHAN BREITUNG SALON & LUXURY SPA

Blustery days can upset your perfectly-styled coif and leave hair looking messy and dull – not a cute look for any girl. Luckily frizzy, windblown hair can be controlled with a few easy tricks. Johnathan Breitung of Johnathan Breitung Salon & Luxury Spa in Chicago shares his top tips for keeping your hair looking fabulous whether your hair is wavy, curly, or straight.

Wavy Hair:
Powerful gusts of wind can leave wavy hair looking limp. Johnathan Breitung recommends Texture from Bumble and Bumble to help style hair on windy days. Apply a small amount to damp hair. Scrunch and ruffle it through the hair and let the product sit for a couple of minutes. Texture can be air dried or for extra lift and movement use a diffuser. This will give your hair enough volume and bounce to resist losing its shape on a breezy day.

Straight Hair:
Try wearing your hair in a bun or pulling the front pieces into a half-up half-down ‘do. Straight hair can lose body and tangle easily, so a structured hairstyle is your best bet.

Curly Hair:
Windy weather can leave your hair looking lackluster. Eliminating alcohol products helps curly hair stay nourished and full-bodied. Deep-conditioning your hair weekly with products like Bumble and Bumble’s Deeep or Mending Conditioner will also keep your curly locks looking fabulous.

Tips for All Hair Types:
1) Get the tousled look. Work leave-in conditioner into your hair to keep it soft and sleek even in the most turbulent weather.
2) Check yo’ ponytail. A low ponytail is chic and works with any ensemble. It only takes a second to sweep it up and dodge flyaway strands all day long.
3) Head for the hills, or at least look like it. Heidi braids are a perfectly cute way to tie back your hair to avoid it getting swept away by the wind. Try crisscrossing them on the crown of the head and securing with bobbypins for a more sophisticated Nordic style.
4) Sleep chic. Opt for a satin pillow so hair slides smoothly instead of getting frizzy while you snooze.

Love it or Hate it: Magnetic Nail Polish!

Introducing Magnetic Polish from Nails. Inc!

A revolutionary magnetic nail lacquer used to create stunning 3D nail art designs in chic metallic shades.

Get the wow factor with this revolutionary polish that lets you create gorgeous nail art effects in just a few minutes using nails inc. Textured, special effects nails are big news for this season and the ultimate fashion and party accessory. Choose from two magnetic polishes named after iconic London attractions: Trafalgar Square (chrome) and Houses of Parliament (purple).

This unique formula has been specially developed with metallic particles to create a pattern on the nail using magnetic forces. As the magnet is held over the nail, the iron powder in the formulation gravitates toward the magnet forming the pattern secretly hidden in the magnet for an astonishing finish. The magnet is included in the cap of the nail polish.

I kind of like this idea! It’s unique! Watch the video below to see how it’s done!

The story of Sugar Plum Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15: “On a recent summer vacation, we spent time on a farm in France where there was a magnificent plum orchard that stretched to the horizon. At first light, the sun would stream through the orchard, warming the irresistible, juicy plums. I tasted one and was surprised at how the deep, dark skin of the plum gave way to a translucent burgundy pulp. Inspired by this unveiling, I created Sugar Plum Lip Treatment SPF 15, a dark bullet that delivers a mysteriously sheer and utterly sensuous tint.” —Alina Roytberg, Fresh Co-founder

JOICO INTRODUCES K-PAK REVITALUXE

I had the chance to review the  new Joico K-PAK RevitaLuxe Bio-Advanced Restorative Treatment. The  product comes in an easy to use tube and promises to protect against color fade by 94%, correct damage and make hair more resistant to breakage.

K-PAK RevitaLuxe smells amazing definitely  one of my favorite hair masks I’ve reviewed.  The texture is thick and creamy and you only need a  small amount to treat all your hair. After the first use my hair feels softer and is so much easier to comb through. After styling my hair looks so much shinier, love this mask and at around $20 its a great deal one tube will go a long way.

 

 

The magic in the tube:

• Keratin Peptide Complex to actively target and rebuild weak, damaged and broken areas on the hair, instantly strengthening and rejuvenating.
• Keratin Amino Acids to restore hair’s moisture balance to improve luster and elasticity.
• Joico Quadramine Complex, Joico’s signature combination of deep-penetrating, keratin protein molecules to provide incomparable damage repair and ongoing strengthening.
• Jojoba Oil to penetrate deeply to soften and condition hair as it promotes elasticity, shine, combability and manageability.
• Aloe Extract for additional, luxurious moisture.

At Home and in the Salon
As the newest addition to the Joico hair repair family, RevitaLuxe is ideal for use as a home treatment with any Joico K-PAK Shampoo. It’s also an excellent in-salon, pre- or post-chemical service treatment. Before a chemical service, it will restore hair to its optimum condition in order to receive permanent hair color. Afterward, it instantly restores hair’s proper pH balance, strength and moisture.

RevitaLuxe is excellent for all hair types, including dry, damaged and color-treated.

It’s currently available at fine salons worldwide.

 

$22.95 for 150ml and $39.95 for 500ml.
