Wedding Hair Disaster: Avoiding Wedding Hair Mistakes

wedding hairstylesEvery bride wants to look her best on her wedding day. Of course, no bride wants to look at the photos of her big day and feel embarrassed because of her bad hairstyle. Just like how you plan for your big celebration, planning your wedding hairstyle is important to achieve a gorgeous and unique wedding day look. Remember, your wedding is not the day for wearing a lot of makeup and big hair. It’s still important to know what will work best for you.

Here’s a list of the common wedding day hair mistakes you should avoid:

1. Not considering the important factors.

There are many factors that you should consider when choosing the perfect wedding hairstyle. These include the location and time of the wedding ceremony. For instance, if you’re planning a beach wedding, think about creative beach wedding hairstyles for different lengths of hair.

2. Choosing a hairstyle because your favourite celebrity did it.

One of the common mistakes most brides make is choosing the hairstyle that some celebrities used on a red carpet event or fashion show. While this can make your decision-making a lot easier, this can also cause you discomfort on your wedding day. For instance, Katie Holmes’s hairstyle on her wedding day may not work for your hair. Consult a stylist, as they are knowledgeable in different wedding hairdos for short and long hair.

3. Adding too many accessories.

Putting hair accessories is a great way to enhance your hairstyle, but adding too much or too many of them is also an easy way to ruin your overall wedding day look. If you’re going to wear a simple gown and jewelleries on your wedding day, try to use simple hair accessories that will complement your overall look.

When it comes to your wedding look, it’s important to look your best all throughout the day. Discuss with your stylist the best kind of hair arrangement to match your overall appearance.

The Sexy, Conservative Take on Work Holiday Party Ensemble

sexy conservative womanYou just received your invitation to the company’s holiday party, and it’s time to celebrate a year’s worth of hard work with good food and booze. This is the chance to let loose with your coworkers and enjoy. Keep in mind, though, that they’re the same colleagues you work with almost every day. So dress the way you want without going over the top.

Before you shop online for the perfect shoes and clothes, check these guidelines on rocking a holiday party:

Wear the Right Undergarments

Look for a bra with a smooth finish under silky garments and a flesh-colored slip under a light skirt. Body shapers and control-top pantyhose are perfect for body-contoured designs. You don’t want to wear anything so tight that will inhibit your movements.

Slip Into Sexy Shoes

This is the appropriate area to show a little skin. Shoes with a low vamp elongate your legs. The vamp is the part where the front of the shoe reaches the toes. This way, you don’t need to wear high heels to get an alluring look.

Keep Makeup Light and Lips Bright

Too much makeup will make you look older. Choose a foundation one shade lighter than your skin tone and apply a black liner close to the upper lash line and along inner lower lashes to create drama. Use a curler on your lashes and finish it with a few coats of mascara to open up your eyes. A hint of blush and a bright lip color are all you need to shine.

Finish Your Outfit with a Classy Handbag

Your handbag is your opportunity to make a stylish, conservative fashion statement. Treat it as a work of art. Don’t just shop online and look for cheap handbags. Buy a purse that’s small enough to be tucked under your arm while you’re drinking cocktails or eating canapés.

The company’s holiday party is your chance to make a good impression with your colleagues and bosses. You can be a little bit bolder with your outfit choice, but you still have to look appropriate. With these styling tips, you’ll have one less thing to worry about this holiday season.

Buying the Right Beauty Creams for Your Skin

face creamsMen and women across the globe have always been after the fountain of youth. Many invest in anti-ageing creams and the best skincare products for acne treatment and other concerns. These help to reduce the clear signs of aging and improve the texture of your skin by reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and skin discoloration. There are several creams and other products available today. Each of them differ in the ingredients they contain, although they are all designed to produce similar results.

What are the Different Types?

Firstly, there are wrinkle relaxers. They help to relax creases in your skin and reduce the appearance of facial lines. The results however, may be temporary and you will have to use these relaxers repeatedly with other anti-ageing creams. Antioxidant creams help reduce impurities by supplying large volumes of minerals and vitamins necessary for healthy skin. Next, there are repairing creams containing hydroxy acids, retinol, elastin and collagen. They provide firmness, elasticity and help to reverse sun damage. Also available are natural, firming, and deep hydrating facial creams.

Buy it Right

You will have to consider a few factors before buying the best solutions. Price is one of the prime factors in this regard. Price may vary from one manufacturer to another depends on the ingredients used in your anti-ageing cream. Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is the next biggest thing to look at. Buy creams that have high SPF levels because they help protect your skin against damages. Check whether your cream has natural ingredients. It may include tamanu oil, aloe vera and others that offer long-term results. Cell rejuvenation and deep healing are some of the benefits of using natural ingredients in the cream.

Remember that skin type varies for all. It is therefore necessary to find the best anti-aging cream for your skin type. Consider whether your skin tone is dark or fair. Also consider whether your skin is dry or oily. Some skin creams tend to improve oil production, while a few others control skin oils. Few creams may be designed to tighten your skin while few others make your skin smooth and appear evenly textured. Understanding the qualities of your skin can therefore help you find a cream with the best ingredients. Think of all these aspects as you browse online for skincare products.

Khloé Kardashian And Her Social Media Skills

If you watch TV, read the newspaper, or browse articles on the internet, then there’s a big chance you know who the Kardashians are. If you’ve been living under a rock, however, let me introduce them to you. They’re a family who have their own reality TV show called, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The Kardashian household includes, Kim Kardashian, the most famous of them all, Kris Jenner, the mom, Bruce Jenner, the stepfather, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, Kim’s sisters, and Kylie and Kendall Jenner who are Khloe’s, Kourtney’s, and Kim’s half-sisters.

khloeWord on the street is that Khloe’s marriage with basketball superstar Lamar Odom is on the rocks. In Khloe’s latest interview, she refused to answer any personal questions. She just kept thanking her fans over and over again. The same is true with her Twitter and Facebook accounts. Fans keep asking and the girl keeps dodging.

I know that a failing marriage is a tragic thing, but what did people expect? These superstar couples are forever getting together and splitting up, making headlines along the way. I really want to be sad for the girl if ever the rumors are true, but considering she is a trending topic with the hashtag #kantstopkhloe, and the fact that she’s earning way more than I do and still officially married to a star athlete… Well, I think I’d just feel sorry for myself instead.

Hummingbird: Google’s Latest Algorithm

Google just celebrated its 15th birthday on September 27. And the big news is Google launched a new algorithm called Hummingbird!

If you’re wondering what that is, then here’s the gist. Algorithms are formulas that Google use to sort through billions of websites to give you the most relevant results during your search. As of late, Google has two of these operating called Google Penguin and Google Panda. From what I understand, Google Hummingbird is a step-up from these two in such a way that Google Hummingbird takes into account what the user is actually looking for by analyzing the entire search phrase and not just the individual words typed into the search box. That’s right, semantics are now part of the playing field.

I don’t know about you, but I find this very exciting! Imagine not having to search through endless results that have nothing to do with your query. This big news, of course, not only affects everyday Google users but SEO companies.

SEO companies would have to find new ways to step up their game if they want their clients to continue ranking with this new algorithm in place. I’m confident that SEOs would find ways to continually provide great service and in turn, great results, to their clients as they always have throughout the years.
