This week Fashion Flash is hosted by Moving Free with Mirabai. There are alot of exercise guru’s out there, but few have the credentials that Mirabai brings to her exercise programs. As a committed couch potato, I’ve found that the exercise plans of Moving Free make me more flexible without pain and soreness. An single Zumba session sent me to the orthopedist, but Mirabai’s exercise prescription heals rather than hurts my low back issues.
This week, the fashion flash bloggers are definately thinking about winter as Aging Backwards, The Best of Everything After 50 and Prime Beauty are looking at ways to stay fit and beatiful in cold windy weather.
I love a little book with big information– and the Five Minute Hair Stylist certainly delivers. In less than 100 pages, it offers more than 30 different DIY styles that are quick, flattering and realistically beautiful. Most are for long hair and many are for naturally curly hair. Even better, these long hair style work beautifully day and night and for women from 16 to 60
Five Minute Hair Stylist has unusually clear directions and illustrations for a perfect french twist and french braid. I just wish my hair was long enough to do either style. I really loved the fact that this book makes frizzy brown hair absolutely fabulous in a loose Cavalier Bow, a wispy Edwardian updo and the 40’s style Quiff. This is the little bump at the top of the forehead ( think Elaine of Steinfeld). Not only does it add a little height to your frame, its a great way to deal with front layers, especially if you are growing out bangs. I’m trying out this style before I give the book to my BFF Rachel who has struggled for years to manage her long very curly hair. WIth this book, she will finally be able to show off her natural beauty.
