6 New Ways to Cut Long Hair

Stuck in a long hair rut? Here’s how to bust out

6 New Ways to Cut Long Hair

This is a TotalBeauty.com long hair article

The super long hair trend is over (Sorry Gisele). Stylists are now saying that the best long haircuts range from clavicle-length to mid-back. What’s even better? You don’t have to resort to “long layers” if you want a stylish new look. See the six new cuts that both stylists and celebrities are loving now.

See new cuts

Oh gorgeous-would you look at this thing!

I feel so Ron Popeil when I use it! Ha!

Goody is really innovative in creating great hair products-and this is no different.

The brush I am testing is the half round shape but I couldn’t find a photo of it so I put the paddle picture up.

It is light-so your arm won’t get tired. It’s weird-but give it a moment for learning curve. The idea is that it will cut down drying time on your hair.

I am not sure if my drying time was cut down because I spent quite some time fussing with the brush. For me, it works best when I flip my hair over my head and dry upside down. This gave me a lot of volume.  Interesting: I got a great blow dry: meaning smooth and full hair, but I did need to go back in with the dryer at a cooler temp and my normal round brush and shape my hair a bit more.

So overall: as for being a tool that combines safe drying, with function and style-I give this a thumbs up!

I am concerned that it comes with instructions on how to clean it and microbial something and “freshness”.
These are new terms to me when it comes to my hair brush.

In short-try one-it’s worth it. You can find the Goody QuikStyle at Walmarts and Targets for $11.99

Enjoy!

Hi gorgeous!
It is still hot here in Arizona-but here is a simple and affordable answer to dry summer hair that has been in too much sun, too much chlorine and I hope-has been spared a round of Sun In.

The Smooth n Shine Revivoil leave in potion is amazing for helping hair get back to normal, fast!

I put mine on in the shower after I have towel dried my hair because the tube is kind of messy!

Hey Gorgeous! Please check yesterday’s blog post with a funny yet important video about the importance of helping bees get healthy habitats so the crucial pollination needed for native plants to thrive can take place!

Today-I share with you the Burt’s Bees lip tint-I have 3 colors; a plum, a cherry red and a light pink. The plum is my favorite because it makes a berry tone stain on my lips yet is moisturizing and smooth feeling.

My experience is that it wears on the lip for quite some time! Plus it has just enough color to look ‘made up’ for a busy summer day but not too much as too look over done.

You can get your favorite Burt’s Bees products and cosmetics just about any where; like the Walmart, Target, CVS and Sprouts!

These lip tints are just about $5-worth it for your summer beauty and travel to beach side locations! Enjoy!

Recently the Queen of England had celebrated her 60 years on the throne.

Wow, think about that, 6 decades at the same job in our microwave society. I appreciate her steadfastness, stiff upper lip and willingness to soldier on.

The Queen of England looks really good for her career and age.

consider a fresh new fragrance that has the scent of royalty.

London Queen is an exciting and energetic fragrance that
celebrates the unconventional fashion style and underground scene of
this city. The fragrance opens with notes of raspberry, bergamot and
mandarin. The heart of plum, jasmine, and exotic tiare flower from
Tahiti settled at the base of warm vanilla, benzoin and musk. “For when
you’re in the party-mood for mayhem.” Perfumer: Marie Salamagne.

It’s a Coty Fragrance as of 2012, which has a long history of making some of the best known fragrances of our time.

The elite models line of 4 fragrances celebrating 4 fashion forward cities can be purchased at Targets for under $10.
