Hot Hair Up With Hair Extensions.

 Put Your Hair Extensions

In…Upside Down

If you’re planning on wearing your hair up and want to add volume to your updo or ponytail, place the clip-in upside down against your roots (and underneath a layer of hair so you can’t see it). That way the hair extension is facing in the right direction.

To pull off the look, take the end of your teasing comb and section your hair into a top and bottom layer—clip the top section up. Then, at an angle (to avoid the hair extension from being seen), tease the spots near the root where the clips will go and place the hair extension in. Finally, continue pulling your hair up into the look you want.

 

 

 

 

Simple Steps To Flawless Foundation

Long day at the office? Full day of meetings? Going out? Going out, out? – Wherever we go all we want is for our makeup to stand the test of time and make it through.

 

Make sure you exfoliate! - Exfoliating is the name of the game. If your skin is dry and flaky, your makeup will be too. Use a gentle exfoliator a couple of times a week to keep your skin smooth and supple.

Moisturize: Use a light moisturizer. While hydrating the skin is absolutely essential, keeping it light will help keep makeup in place. Forgo thick and heavy creams for a light daily moisturizer ( Make sure to let it soak in before applying makeup!)

 Simple steps to flawless foundation

Less is more when it comes to your base – it keeps things natural. ‘Always start with a small amount of foundation and build coverage gradually as desired.

Step 1:

Primer – Foundation primers even out your skin tone, help your makeup stay on longer and absorb oil with salicylic acid.  They also ease the application of foundation. My foundation goes on so much easier since I started using a primer!

Step 2:

‘Dot a little product onto your forehead, nose, cheeks and chin.’

Step 3:

‘Then, using your fingers or a foundation brush, blend outwards towards your hairline.’

The right tool - Use a rounded foundation brush to smooth your product into hard-to- reach areas such as around the nose.

Concealer – the facts

‘To hide blemishes without drawing attention to them, first tilt your head down and look up into a mirror to signpost where you need to conceal,’ advises Jane. ‘Once you’ve applied your product, pat gently and blend out a little.’

 Finishing touches:  clever contouring

‘Blush, bronzer and highlighter give your skin and bone structure more polish and dimension. Go lightly, building up layers of colour and shadow slowly.

‘If you have a wide face, bronzer can contour the cheekbones and temples to create a more elongated appearance. If your face is long, sweep it around the perimeters, across the cheeks and over the bridge of the nose. But don’t choose a shade that’s too dark – go with a satin or semi-matte pressed powder bronzer that matches the skin of your body.’

Kardashian hair in 10 easy steps…

Kim Kardashian’s most famous, er, asset may not be her thick head of hair, but that doesn’t mean it’s not the envy of those of us longing for beautiful  back-curled tresses.  Which she often wears with a middle parting or swooping side fringe. With the right tools, time and extensions, you can recreate this look and make it yours.

 

 

Things You’ll Need

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Downtown Doll Clip-in hair extensions.
  • Hairspray

 

Step 1: Shampoo and condition your hair with your favorite products, then blow the hair dry.

Step 2: Make a horseshoe-shaped part around the crown of your head. Clamp the hair above that section up and out of the way.

Step 3: Clip in your Downtown Doll hair extensions (www.downtowndoll.com/extensions) leaving your previously clipped up section so that when you let it down it will cover the extensions ‘seams’

Step 4: Lightly mist heat protectant near your roots and all of the way to ends. This protects your hair from burns that may occur from a hot iron.

Step 5: take a small section of your hair, starting at the nape of your neck and clip the rest of your hair up and out of the way.

Step 6: Grab a small piece of hair at the end. Clamp the curling iron on it and turn the iron until the length of the hair is wrapped. Spritz with hairspray if desired. Hold for 10 seconds and release.

Step 7:  Continue with the rest of loose hair. Let higher layers down from the clips as you go. Turn the iron back — Kardashian curls hair away from the face. Continue this process until you reach the top of your head, near your fringe.

Step 8: Section out your fringe and slightly curl each section of hair underneath. Part your hair in the direction that you want it to flow Kim usually wears a side fringe or a middle parting.

Step 9: Rub a small amount of shine serum on your bang and comb or brush down any fly away hairs to achieve a polished look (not too much – you don’t want it to look greasy!)

Step 10:  Separate the curls with your fingers and lock your style into place with hairspray.

 

Beyonce’s Super Bowl Hair Secrets – Get the Look.

Beyoncé looked seriously hot for her half time super bowl performance, Queen Bey looked better than ever with her gorgeous, voluminous mermaid waves. It wasn’t just her performance that was on point, her hair and make was up there too.

  Get Beyoncé’s bombshell hair:    

The key to Bey’s long, mermaid waves is volume, and she had  A LOT of it. If you want to try the look ; You will need start by towel drying wet hair. This will rough up the cuticle to create a textured base for styling. The next step is to apply a volumizing mousse throughout your hair. Use a diffuser to dry hair and scrunch as you go to encourage more volume. This is where your Downtown Doll hair extensions come in (http://downtowndoll.com/extensions-en.html – for ultimate volume you will need our 215g set) attach them to your hair and damp them down slightly. Dry them using the diffuser like you previously did with your natural hair. Once the hair is completely dry, use a curling wand to add waves. Go through your entire head and curl 1-inch sections from tip to root. Be sure to hold for at least 30 seconds before releasing the hair to ensure gorgous curls. Once every strand is curled, turn your head upside down and rough up your hair to give it that bombshell quality – & voila you’ll have bombshell Bey hair!
