This week, Mirabai of Moving Free with Mirabai is hosting Fashion Flash! She has a list of impressive academic credentials that gives me faith in her fitness recommendations– and she has never steered me wrong. Since I tend to gain weight in winter, I am especially excited about her new cold weather exercise program. I am actually looking forward to snow just to try out her winter routines.
This week I am so excited to add another beauty site to Fashion Flash. Beauty Info Zone has great product reviews and co-founder Marcia likes to describe herself as the “Queen of Giveaways”. She and her blog partner Lisa are make-up artists and educators who have turned their passion for all things beauty into a highly ranked and popular beauty site. I know you will enjoy her insight and advice as much as I do.
Over the years, I’ve learned to be a little dubious of celebrity beauty credentials. These days, every other lifestyle book is by a make-up artist or hair stylist with a list of famous and beautiful clients
Their work looks great, but they are starting with flawless skin, perfect features and yards of beautiful hair. Seriously, how hard can it be to make Jennifer Lopez, Kate Hudson or Reese Witherspoon look gorgeous. But despite the natural good looks of their clients, stylists like Vetica definately have tricks and tips that can benefit all women.
For example, Vetica is considered one of the top experts in “Red Carpet Hair”. This is a long mane of waves and loose curls that seems to be the #1 hairstyle on every red carpet event. I’ve seen dozens of versions in local salons that look wonderful in the shop but quickly collapse during an event. A bit of humidity, a gust of wind and it either frizzes up or goes straight and flat. Turns out that there is indeed a secret ingredent and Vetica not only shares the key to long lasting style, he offers detailed how -to explanations. Vetica has a “Fabuous Hair Kit” of styling essentials and I have to admit I had very few of the recommended products on my bathroom shelves.BTW one of these essential products is gel, which allows those long red carpet curls last for hours.
Fabulous Hair divides hair not by age, color or texture, but by volume. He details the strengths and challenges of fine, medium and full hair– and how to get the maximum style for each type.This is not a book to help you pick a style otr color for daily life. Rather it is a great guide to special occasion hair. I only wish I had owned this book for my proms and weddings
