Spring Hair 2014 Trend: Tousled Texture

tousled hair front and back

The tousled trend is taking Spring 2014 runways by storm. It seems as though the less you care, the prettier the hair and that effortless beauty is definitely in.

John Barrett created a messy side braid with loose face framing strands that accentuated the wearable, classic styles from the designer for the Spring 2014 Holmes & Yang presentations.

Designer Inspiration: “For Spring 2014, Holmes & Yang presented classic styles with a variety of textures and lines. To complement the earthy brown tones of the seductive smokey eyes, I went with an effortless, laid-back look with lots of tousled texture. A wearable-do whether she is headed to an office meeting or about to embark on the ultimate travel adventure”- John Barrett for Alterna Haircare

GET THE LOOK: Tousled texture with loose face-framing strands, evoke your adventurous nature.

· Prep hair with Alterna Haircare Caviar CC Cream by applying a quarter size amount throughout sections of your hair

· Follow with Alterna Haircare Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo (note: two new scents launching in October – Mango Coconut [Katie Holmes’ favorite] and Sheer Blossom) by spraying a liberal amount throughout the scalp. Use this technique to add texture to your hair and create a starting base. For extra wavy texture, spray Alterna Haircare Bamboo Style Boho Waves Spray from the mid-section of hair towards the ends

· Next, spray Alterna Haircare Bamboo Uplifting Root Blast at the roots while sectioning hair and using a blow dryer aiming towards the scalp to hold the lift. Then, wrap one inch sections around 11/2 curling iron and hold for 15 seconds

· When done curling the entire head, shake up the curls with your fingers. The messier the better. Scrunch with Alterna Haircare Bamboo Style Boho Waves Spray

· Push hair to deep side part then start French braiding hair from nape of neck twisting and adding sections to the braid till you reach the opposite ear and secure with a clear elastic. Twist and tuck the braid underneath by pinning into place with bobby pins.

· For a piecier look, pull out a few strands near the face and finish with the Alterna Haircare Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Micromist for a boost of shine.

Him & Her – One Product, One Couple


I was sent some PR samples of a few Schwarzkopf products that work great for you and your guy. Check out below to see some styling tools that work for both of you and can help clear up a little counter space.

We all know how hard counter top space is to come by, especially when you’re sharing a single sink with your significant other! Thankfully, you can clear the clutter and save space with these bath, body, hair and home products for him AND her:

moisture kick duo

A great duo for the end of summer. Long days out in the summer sun swimming, biking and hiking has left my hair pretty dry. The moisture kick duo has really helped nourish my dry hair. On top of working great for me and my guy, keeping our hair smooth and hydrated it works great for my kids. I love the spray conditioner its the perfect way to banish the tangles and have pain free brushing.

I love the Schwarzkopf OSiS+ Rough Rubber. The product is blue and does have a real rubber feel to it. You don’t need much just a little dab and you can add texture and style to you hair. My boys all love it because it works great at spiking their hair and creating little faux hawks. For my daughter and I we use a few dabs to create a little texture to our hair. I love that its not sticky at all and it smell amazing!

OSiS+ Rough Rubber
Rugged texturizer
Innovative rubber consistency that roughens up your style. OSiS+ ROUGH RUBBER is the first product with a unique rubber consistency that mattifies and roughens up the hair structure for natural long lasting distressed looks. The consistency of the innovative rubber paste offers a high level of control even with thicker hair, but won’t weigh down fine hair or leave any residues. Thanks to Micro-sponge Technology and Bees wax, the formula easily lets you reshape your look anytime with a non-sticky grip. Work a small amount into towel-dry hair and style hair as required.

Apply a small amount to dry hair.

Introducing Nexercise by Mama Mio!


Want to take 60 years off your neck? It might be possible – thanks to mama mio’s Nexercise!  About a month ago, I was sent Nexercise to try for myself, and see what I think*. Let’s face it…. we’re getting older. Okay – I’M getting older, I won’t speak for all of you. I’m 36, and when I look in the mirror, I’m noticing my skin is changing. My face looks different, my neck looks different…things are just changing. I’ve ALWAYS put my face lotion on my neck, because I am very fearful of getting turkey neck. (You know what I’m talking about.)

When I heard that mama mio (whom I LOVE) had a product that firms up that neck skin, I pounced all over it. I’ve been using it 3-4 times a week for the past month, and I honestly have seen a difference in my skin. My skin IS tighter, is more firm, feels younger somehow? I am really happy to share this product with you guys – because I think that a lot of women really will benefit from it’s results!

Here’s what you need to know from mama mio:

Inside each box of Nexercise, you will find two halves: our ‘firming Neck and Jawline Con-centrate’, plus our Mama Mio ‘Nexercise’ Face Fitness regime – two sculpting 30 second exercises to define your jaw and slim your chin. All will be explained in our covetable: Little Book of Confidence.

Why we love it

Nexericse tackles one of the first places that show aging – your neck and jawline. Our mega-moistursing, collagen-boosting formula plumps, lifts, smoothes and tightens double chins and turkey necks.

•Rebuilders and firmers get your neck and jawline looking more taut toned and dewy

•Fitness focuses on slackening jaw and turkey neck, one of the first signs of aging •Has today and tomorrow benefits – instant rewards combined with anti-aging

•Who doesn’t want a neck like Audrey?!

Nexercise contains 10 key actives. This formula rocks:

1. Fision Soy Lift™ is a soy protein that soothes out creases and moisturises whilst gently tightening. It combines two natural skin-tightening agents plus a firming booster that gives a long lasting effect to your skin.

2. Peptamide 6™ (Hexapeptide) Derived from yeast, this firming hexapeptide gives great benefits over time. It works very deep to reduce fine lines and elasticise.

3. Collageneer™ Derived from the casings of lupin seeds blended with sunflower seed oil, Collageneer improves type 1 collagen that diminishes with age, increasing quality and quantity to give elasticity to your neck.

4. Prodew 400 contains 7 key amino acids (the building blocks of protein) that skin needs to produce collagen and Sodium PCA, a very powerful moisturiser. The combination smoothes skin leaving it feeling dewey and plump, not thin and crepey.
