Ok, so it’s good to be up to date on the trends and to be in the “now”. Of course, some people have to have the latest hair style, while others are just okay with being up to date on fashion.
As for me, I try to be updated on makeup, fashion, and the hair!
For April of 2008, below are the popular hairstyles I’ve pulled from Hairstyler.com.
I’ve gotten so many emails saying “Joy, can you please show us how to do celebrity hairstyles!!!!” and I was like “oh , what the hell. fine.” I have no problem doing it.
Here I have Jessica Simpson with a classic twist up do.
Classic Neat Twist
To create classic neat twists like Jessica Simpson’s use Redken fabricate 03 heat active texturizer from roots to end and brush hair through. Then use a large base curling iron making sure to apply hot sets 22 thermal setting mist to each three-inch section of hair and clip each section once done until cool. Brush hair out. Apply a small amount of glass 01 smoothing serum throughout, then backcomb and smooth over the sides and back. This gives the shape and height that is perfect for this look. Pin back into a French twist, smoothing the top and spray with forceful 23 super strength finishing spray to keep shape.
Here, you have Emmy Rossum’s sexy romantic half up do
Romantic Half Updo
To create a romantic half updo like Emmy Rossum, first spray headplay 12 pliable working spray from root to end, and blow dry. Use a medium base curling iron on three-inch sections and apply spray starch 15 heat memory styler to each section, roll and pin back to cool down. Run fingers through hair using vinyl glam 01 mega shine spray and pull a section of hair up front and secure tightly with pins.
To get Carmen’s sexy ’90’s supermodel-style hair, start by applying a quarter-size dollop of frank.studio Volumizing Cream. Apply from roots to ends on clean, towel-dried hair. With a large round brush, blow hair up and out starting at the nape. Take small sections and be sure each section is dry before moving onto the next. Once hair is completely dry, set on large velcro rollers.
The soft, sexy Brigette Bardot-esque look seen here on Eva Mendes is great for long, layered hair. Feminine and easy to achieve, this look is great for anyone. Start by applying a few pumps of L’Oreal Bliss Extreme Volumizer to clean, towel-dried hair. Using a large round brush, dry hair up and out, away from the scalp. Work in two sections, starting at the nape. Use this method on the sides and top as well. For the front, blow hair forward and sweep to the side. Once hair is dry, toss upside down and tousle with your fingers. Finish off with a mist of flexible hold hairspray.
I drink aloe vera juice to help me with constipation, diarrhea, and it’s also good for any type of gastrointestinal disorder. But another great benefit of the aloe vera juice is that it helped me to lose weight. I drink aloe vera juice EVERY DAY…and some of you may think it’s nasty, horrid, tastes like crap, or makes you go poo, but the Aloe vera juice that I take has Studies which have suggested that aloe, when consumed orally, imparts a wealth of health benefits, including aiding digestion and supporting the immune system. Ultimate Aloe® Juice is a rejuvenating tonic made from 100 percent aloe vera, 50 percent aloe concentrated powder, more than 200 nutrients, enzymes, vitamins and minerals, including 13 of the 17 essential minerals needed for good nutrition. Supports a healthy digestive tract and promotes regularity within the bowel. Comes in natural aloe flavor, cranberry-apple, strawberry-kiwi, and pomegranate.*
I drink the pomegranate, and again, this helped me to also lose the 40-45 pounds.
I went from a size 14 to a size 5-6…and I LOVE IT!!!
Not only is my digestive system feeling better, but i lost weight, and I feel sexy as a mofo..hehe
You can only buy this kind of aloe vera juice through market america, so
and purchase it. Im telling you the truth..i lost weight from drinking this stuff.
Dont you hate it when you go to the salon, and you tell the person to cut your hair a certain way, and you get really detailed and even show a pic, but the out come was all wrong???? That’s happened to me a couple of times, damnit! I paid for a damn hair cut that I didnt like and made me look like CRAP!!!
For me, I figured since I’ve lost weight, (went from 165 pounds to 125 pounds), I should try something new. I’ve had the same freakin long hair that’s been layered. Ah, yes, when Jennifer Aniston made it popular in the 90s…damn, that’s one hell of an old hair style but its so nice.
So, I’m having a difficult time trying to find what looks good on me. The bad thing is I have a round face with big cheeks, but the good thing is Im not ugly. So before I go to the beauty salon, I want to make sure that I look “cute” with the new hair cut, style, color, whatever.
I went on line and found these websites to decide which hairstyles look good on me.
myvirtualmodel.com —(you can actually try on clothes here, too)
You can actually upload your picture and customize it and adjust it to make the model look just like you, and what’s even more cool is that you can try on clothes from different stores and see how it looks on you.
And ITS FREE!!!!!
try it. Im having fun with mine. I even have the cosmopolitan virtual makeover but it’s from a couple of years ago. These sites are more updated.
Look out weekend …Here I come.
Again, I was surfing the net at clothes, like I always do, and I came across this look. I went to Armani’s website, and I was like “Damn, I love that outfit.”
From Armani’s website,
- Mesh Sleeveless shirt: $78
- Indigo Pencil skirt: $88
- Woven Leather belt: $48
But I figured, man, $214 is pretty darn expensive.
So, my challenge was to find something similar to this look but a lower price.
So check this out: Starting from Left to Right:
- Forever 21 sexy sequin top: $24.80
- Forever 21 cassis tunic top: $27.80
- Belt: Forever 21 $7.80
- Sierra Trading Post jean skirt: $22.95
Total of $ 55.50- $58.50
Total savings of : $155.45….
Pretty darn good, DONT YOU THINK???
Now, just to be clear, I’m not here to advertise or sell anything. I don’t represent anyone, any company, nothing.
I’m just doing this to show others what I love to do and what I find fun.
