3 Signs A Fashion Blog Will Have The Right Advice For You

If you are looking for a fashion blog to follow that will give you useful tips about what clothing to purchase and wear, then you have many choices available. But it can be easy to waste time scrolling through fashion blogs that don’t actually have much advice for you, making them a waste of your time. Below are three signs that a fashion blog will have the right advice for you.  The Author Shares Your Body Type or Often Features Those Who Do Many fashion blogs do a decent job of covering the needs of people with various body types and skin tones. However, when you subscribe to a general blog, you will be exposed to both articles that relate to your body type and those that have nothing to do with you. While these can be interesting, if you are trying to limit your media intake and get your fashion updates efficiently, then you would be better off subscribing to a blog whose author focuses on your specific body type and skin tone. The easiest way to determine if the author shares your body type is to check out a few pictures of them. However, you may also want to scan the blog to see what body type they write about most often.   The Author Shares Your Interests A lot of your style will be determined by your interests and obligations. For example, if you work in the business sector, your wardrobe will be quite different than those who work outdoors or as a stay-at-home parent. Because of this, you should try to find blogs that focus...

What You Should Know before Getting a Brazilian Blowout Treatment

A Brazilian blowout treatment is a special chemical treatment that helps to repair frizz caused from damaged or color-treated hair. The blowout will give you silky, smooth, frizz-free hair because it provides you with a protective layer around the shafts (roots) of your hair. It sounds amazing, right? Don’t run out to the nearest salon just yet, though. You should know a few more things about the Brazilian blowout first. Cost The cost of a Brazilian blowout can be pretty hefty, as the treatment lasts about 10–12 weeks. If you are at a salon that is advertising it for cheap, it probably isn’t what you think it is. Move on to another salon if this is the case. Certified? Check to be sure the salon is certified to give the Brazilian blowout. The procedure isn’t something that people are taught when they train for a regular cosmetology license. This is something that is taught through a special course, and your stylist should be certified. If your stylist isn’t certified, move to a different salon.  Chemical Dangers There are a number of chemicals used in most hair care products. Brazilian blowout treatments use formaldehyde, which is a preservative and a carcinogen. It should be used carefully, which is why your stylist should be certified to give this type of treatment. Risks When dealing with chemicals and new hair treatments, there are always risks. Ask the stylist about what risks are involved in this type of treatment, such as allergic reactions. Talk to your stylist ahead of time about his or her confidence in the treatment working for your hair type.

Tips For Finding The Right Fit For A Cocktail Dress As A Plus-Sized Woman

If you are like many women, you have or would like to have a little black dress in your closet. Unfortunately, it can be challenging to find a flattering cocktail dress, if you are a plus sized woman. The good news is that if you know how to choose the right dress and the right accessories, there are more options than you might think for that black cocktail dress.  Choose The Most Flattering Length For Your Little Black Dress      One of the most common misconceptions about the use of a cocktail dress for plus-sized women is that it has to be short. In fact, if you choose one that has a skirt that hits at least your knee or calf, you will have the most flexibility for its use. A dress of that length could more easily be used during any season and could even make the cross-over between your job and an evening out.  Many of the dresses seen on the red carpet the last two years were not mini-skirts, so it will be easy to find a flattering length for your new, multi-purpose cocktail dress. Since the average woman in the United States is a size 14 or 16, it only makes sense that more stores and designers are trying to meet that need.  Consider The Sleeves One common problem for plus-sized women is the extra weight on the bottom of their upper arms. Because so many cocktail dresses are sleeveless, you may have been stuck with few options in the past. However, now you will see that dresses with both short sleeves and 3/4 inch sleeves are more...

Hair Styling Tips To Make Your Face Look Smaller

In today’s social media age, there is often pressure to constantly feel “camera ready.” It is not always an easy thing to do, especially if there is something about your appearance that you don’t like. But there are some simple tricks. For example, a common complaint from women is feeling that their face is a little too big. Choosing the right hairstyle can help minimize this effect. There are many hairstyles you can do on your own to create the illusion of a smaller face. You do not need any fancy equipment. Instead, you can achieve these looks with tools you already have. This guide provides four simple tips to help you feel great, and the best part is that they are easy to do. Tip 1: Part Your Hair on the Side A side part subtly hides a portion of your face, instantly creating the illusion of a smaller surface area. The part can go on the right or left, whichever side looks more natural on your head or feels more comfortable. Part your hair above the arch of your eyebrow to pull off the subtle look, or part closer to your ear for a more dramatic look. Tip 2: Put Your Hair Up Piling your hair up in a chic twist, ballerina bun, high ponytail, high knot, or braided crown brings height to your face, effectively slimming your overall look. Height can be achieved with simple items you likely already own, such as bobby pins, hair elastics, barrettes, clips, and hairspray. Tip 3: Stay Away from Short Bangs Short, blunt bangs accentuate the width of your face,...
