Hair Care | How to use Bobbi Pins Correctly




Hello Beautiful People.

There's a very special tool I'd like to introduce to you today. I don't know about you but I think it's a very handy tool.

Quick Tip: Every girl uses it... Nope... it's not what you're think. It's the Bobbi Pin

If used correctly, bobbi pins might even beat the blow dry and in the end, you'll use less. 

Bobbi pins come in different shapes and sizes and might be responsible for some level of hair removal but again, if you know how to use them correctly, it can be reduced.

This video by Nikki of The Green Beauty Channel explains the sizes and best ways to use the bobbi pin

I hope it's helpful.   



Do you use bobbi pins? What other tools do you use for your hair?

"Don't just leave them hanging! Put them in your pockets or on your hips, cross your arms...basically anything is better than just having them hang there."
8. Your outfit should make you pop.

How To | Taking a Flattering Photo (Part 1)

Hello Beautiful People.

Happy Weekend.

Today's post explores the art of 'Selfie' Taking... Literally.

Getty
Have you ever wondered how the celebrities and A-listers take photos and look great every single time?

According to Matt Sayles  an L.A.-based portrait photographer whose A-list portfolio includes Lupita Nyong'o and Taylor Swift —there are actually several handy secrets to keep in mind. 



  1. Picking the correct angle

"Everyone looks great from above! Make sure the camera is at least eye level—if not higher—when taking pictures. This angle will highlight those gorgeous eyes and hide any less than flattering elements under the chin. 

2. Smile!

Getty

 The best smile is always an authentic one, so think of something or someone who makes you smile when posing for a photo. 

True smiles come from within, so think happy thoughts! If you need to fake a smile, try pushing your tongue against the top front of your mouth. This will help lift your cheeks and make your smile feel real. Finally, when all else fails, look at the pictures of yourself where you like your smile and learn to replicate that.

3. Always Turn to the Light

Getty

Wherever you can find some light—whether it's a window, a doorway, a candle, or a bathroom mirror—go towards it and take the picture there. This is one case where you definitely want to follow the light. Also, keep that light in front of you and not to the side, which will result in unfortunate shadows on your face.

4. Primp without going overboard
Getty

Mascara and lipstick (or lip gloss) are the most important makeup elements when posing for a photo. It's easy to get carried away with eyeshadow and blush, but they can distract, so keep it simple and light. But really, the key to great makeup is the way that it makes you feel: Use what makes you feel beautiful, because it's not the makeup but your confidence that will really make you shine."

Hair | Did You Know What a Relaxer is Really Doing to Your Hair?

Hello Beautiful People.

In February, 2013, I decided to stop perming my hair and so even though I had been growing my hair for five years, I had to cut it all off. All this had to happen because I felt that I didn't like the texture of my hair and it had a strange tint to it.

I wish I had a photo to share but that would mean going through years of photos that I've lost through years of mobile phone changes.

Today, I found this video on how a relaxer reacts with the hair and now after three years of growing my her naturally and chemical free, I finally understand. 

This is a video by Nikki on the Green Beauty Channel on Youtube and it gives an in-depth explanation of the entire process.  


I think I'm sold!
