Parting with your part!

Almost everyone parts their hair...even if they don't, most hair will fall into a natural part. But where the hair naturally falls and where the part should be can really change up your look. The right part can frame a face, highlight features or simply add an extra layer of interest to your style.  So, give each part a try and see the change it makes!


The Middle Part
The signature style of ’70s beauties, this straight-down-the-center look is a chic option for any occasion or face shape. It’s a classic. For the most precise part with less risk of snagging, use the tip of a rattail comb to divide hair. If you try to part hair using the comb’s teeth, you'll encounter more tangles.

BEAUTY SCIENCE: Volume

So many of us try to achieve a full volume look or work to keep our hair looking fuller than it really is.  There are also ways to achieve volume without using products.  

How do volumizing products work?
When it comes to shampoos and conditioners there is no "magic bullet" volumizing ingredient that can be added to amp up the volume. These products actually work by NOT weighing hair down. Some shampoos, and all conditioners, work by leaving a residue on hair which is great if you need conditioning, but this residue can weigh hair down and rob it of volume and body. Volumizing products are designed to leave less "stuff" on your hair so you keep more of the volume you have.

The Cold Water Rinse!

Before we take a look at some of the reasons why splashing cold water is a wonderful idea, make sure that you have thoroughly cleansed your face prior to using cold water on it.  Cold water causes those open pores to close. And if your face is soiled before you rinse it with cold water, all the dirt and grime will get trapped inside those pores. We all know that clogging up the pores can be disastrous as it can cause pimples to show up!

So...what are the benefits to splashing the cold water on your face after washing it?

Washing a face with sensitive skin!


The care of sensitive skin is important and starts with a daily routine of keeping your face clean. There is a right and wrong way to wash your face, whether you have sensitive skin or not. The skin of your face is always exposed to many elements and is affected by sun exposure, debris, environmental pollutants, and the ingredients in your skin care products or makeup. 

Understanding what your skin needs to stay healthy and to combat the harmful things its exposed to daily, is the key to managing sensitive skin starting with how you wash your face.

1. Know Your Sensitive Skin Type

With sensitive skin, it's not only important to know if you have dry, oily, combination or normal skin, but also what type of irritation you're prone to. For example, you may have dry but acne-prone skin which requires special needs, or oily skin with flaky patches.. No matter which type or skin condition, choose as few products as possible for your daily routine. Using too many products or constantly adding or trying new ones, can exacerbate your delicate skin.

Hair Resque...help for damaged hair!


An extra hot blow-dry, skipping that overdue trim, morning straighteners and evening curlers – we’ve done it all to our locks. Using too much heat and not caring for our hair can damage it. If you've noticed that your hair has become a bit dry, dull and lifeless, read our guide on hair repair for tips on how to make it shine again.

How to Tell if I Have Damaged Hair

If you notice a change in your hair early enough, it will be easy to prevent further damage. Having said that, once your hair is severely damaged, you will be able to improve its appearance and make way for healthy hair growth but you won’t be able to repair it completely.

Think of it this way – both hair and nails are made of keratin. You can’t fix a broken nail but you can certainly condition, buff and apply strengthening product to make sure it still looks great and prevent further breakage. Hair is the same – there are products out there that can help your hair look fantastic but the way to truly repair the damage is hair growth.
