The Peanut Products You Have to Toss Now

This is a health article
From your favorite Trader Joe’s ice cream to Starbuck’s boxed lunches, the FDA found more than 400 nut-based products laced with traces of a salmonella strain. But reading through an unwieldy list like the one on the FDA’s website can be mind-numbing. Which is why we created this photo gallery, which has pictures of every product you need to toss. See if you have any of ’em in your pantry now.

Oh Gorgeous,
I am so sorry I do not have a hair tutorial video of photos for you-but something happened and thank goodness I had my hairdo by HairUWear sample with me!

I was backstage at a major event doing a lot of talent  and  turning them around for stage as quickly as possible.

This particular talent, with her messy dirty hair had minutes before she had to be on stage. I pulled the 18″ beach curl pony in chocolate copper from my kit to use on her. It was so easy!
I pulled her hair into a high pony tail, secured it. Slipped the beach curl pony comb into the crown above the elastic band, then fastened the velcro, added 2 bobby pins to insure it stayed snug, then wrapped the extension around the velcro to hide it.

The beach curl pony looked fantastic! To make it a more formal updo look for her, I tucked the bottom of the tail under and pinned it near the elastic band to create more of a ‘bump’ look. To finish the style I spread the ‘bump’ and secured it to her head with bobby pins then added a hair flower at the base.

It looked classy and beautiful and happened with in minutes. Finally all I had to do was apply some simple HD makeup and primer with Dior warmth and a set of lashes. When she walked on stage you would have never known she had just ran in the back door sweating with a ball cap on!

The bummer is, she kept the hairdo beach curl pony-but I would definitely get another. Why?
Because it is a synthetic fiber hair piece that can be heat styled with a flat iron, curling iron or blown out.

It worked well with a texture paste and hair spray.  HairUWear hairdo is created by celebrity hair stylist Ken Paves.  Visit the locator page on the website to find a retailer near you.
