  • New Innovative Ceramic Hair Brush Straightens Hair In Seconds

    If you have curly or frizzy, thick hair, getting your hair to look how you want can be a nightmare and take way too much time. The process of trying to tame the mane is a long one, stating with blowdrying, and ending with flat ironing your hair in small sections, over and over again. It certainly makes just throwing your hair up into a bun or pony tail seem like the only real option. But, always having your hair up in a pony tail holder isn't good for your locks!

    Fret not, though - a brand new tool is here to make straightening your hair oh-so easy. The geniuses of DAFNI invented an innovative new hot tool for your hair that's a combination of a brush and straightener! According to their website, DAFNI is a "revolutionary hair straightening brush. Simply brush your hair and it will be straight and smooth in minutes. No fuss, no clips."

    Sounds too good to be true, right? Check out the video below of DAFNI's co-founder Sharon Rabi using the brush (who has incredibly thick, curly hair!) to see the amazingness in action.

     

    It certainly looks like a quick way to get your hair style-perfect in a short amount of time. Just think... more time sleeping before needing to get to school or work! And, more time picking out that perfect outfit and doing your make-up before a night out with the girls or going on a date. It could certainly make a DIY prom, homecoming, or holiday party hair style a lot easier!  Continue reading

  • Prom Primping: Most Flattering Hairstyles for Different Necklines

    Some of us spend just as long browsing online for the perfect prom hairstyle as we do shopping for dresses. It seems like the least of your concerns at first, but as the big day inches near, you realize you're totally clueless – especially if you're doing your hair yourself! Finding something that's elegant but easy can be really tricky, and on top of that, you want something that complements the neckline of the dress. That's why we've compiled a list of a few different hairstyles that you can definitely do yourself and that will also turn your dress into an ensemble.

    Halter Tops: Loose Braid

    Halter tops are tricky because you want to show off the pretty neckline, but they do show a lot of shoulder, which can cause some visual imbalance for those of us who are a bit broader across the top. Piling all your hair on top of your head can leave your shoulder area looking a little bare, while wearing it all down will cover up that pretty neckline. We think Blake Lively makes a good compromise by doing a loose fishtail braid thrown over her shoulder. You can wear it up high like hers, or you can start it down at the nape of your neck for a more beachy look. It helps that this style is super easy!

    Spaghetti Straps: Tousled Chignon

    When your dress has delicate elements on top, such as spaghetti straps, you want to play off of it with a delicate hairstyle. A tousled side-chignon, like the one Jessica Alba is wearing, is the perfect way to create a look that's feminine and romantic. Some subtle jewelry, like long earrings and a small bracelet, can really bring it all together. Click here for an easy chignon tutorial!

    One-Shoulder: Ballerina Bun

    Nobody opts for a dramatic, one-shoulder neckline with the intention of covering it up! Asymmetrical necklines are a show-stopper, so let them do all the talking by keeping your hair up and away. There's nothing more chic than a sleek ballerina bun with this neckline – it's such an elegant and classic hairstyle for a dress that has an edge. Go for natural eye makeup, a shimmery highlight, and a bold lip if you really want to make a statement with your style.

    Strapless/Sweetheart: Loose Side Waves

    Strapless dresses are well-loved as prom styles, and admittedly, they leave a lot of room to play around with hairstyles. That being said, there's nothing we love more than letting some loose waves fall over one shoulder when wearing a strapless dress. It reads slightly retro and extremely glam – just look how amazing Amy Adams looks in this look!  Here's an easy tutorial so you can do it yourself.

    High Neck: Chic Ponytail

    roos5

    High necklines are all the rage this year – everyone from Kate Blanchett to Adriana Lima is wearing them. In our opinion, they look sleek and maybe a little bit mysterious when paired with a clean, simple ponytail. Just look at Allison Williams – she pulls off this look perfectly a bold red lip!

  • Haircut Trends to try for a New You!

    The school year is about to begin and the New Year is just around the corner! You are once again reunited with your classmates and getting settled into your new classes. This year, it's your chance to amp up your style and refresh your look. Fashion is constantly changing and usually some back-to-school shopping does the trick. But, if you want to really make a drastic change to your look...try a whole new hairstyle! So many haircuts are on trend right now and we picked out a few of our favorite current ones.

    The Lob - Long Bob

    So many celebs have drastically changed their hair for summer of 2014. One of the biggest trends of the year was the infamous long bob. This intermediate cut is not too short but not too lengthy.  The on trend term for the Long Bob is The Lob.  The long bob has a wide range of variations from sexy waves to groovy seventies inspired bangs.  Even Beyonce went from her luscious long locks to this sassy short cut. Everyone is jumping on this hairstyle and can't get enough of it. Who said short hair wasn't sexy? This is great for someone who wants to try something new but not totally extreme.  Sienna Miller and Jennifer Aniston are just two of the many A-List celebs that have opted for the the long bob hairstyle.

    Ombre Highlights

    For the past couple of years, ombre highlights have been getting so popular...everybody tried some kind of form of ombre...even ombre dresses! When it comes to your hair, whether it's a subtle one shade lighter ombre or a full on platinum blonde ombre...there's endless possibilities on how extreme you can go. Adding color like pinks and reds to add some edginess to your style is a great way to more drastically change your appearance.  Check out how Ciara and Rachel Bilson rock the ombre hairstyle below.

    Shaved Side Hairstyle

    Another trend celebs all over this year have been rocking is the shaved side hairstyle. You've seen it on pop stars like Miley Cyrus...Rihanna...and Cassie. Not many people would go for this look because of the drastic side buzz cut and the maintenance, but if you want a look that will have you standing out from the crowd, then this will definitely do it!

    Rihanna's shaved side hairstyleIf you want to try it but don't want to go too extreme, here's a temporary look Kendall Jenner rocked similar to that trend. Short, small braids is a great way to go edgy for just a few days without giving your mom a heart attack!

  • 2014 Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Beauty Trends!

    The beauty trends for Haute Couture Fashion week are anything but average. In fact, the typical adjectives used to capture the art displayed by various designers and artists include wild, eclectic, and whimsical. However non-realistic and daring these hair and makeup looks may be, they always seem to have an underlying layer of prettiness drawing us to them and tempting us to give them a try on our own mini runways in everyday life. Here are a few of the 2014 Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week beauty trends we enjoyed the most and would be willing to try for Fall and Homecoming 2014.

    Chanel Haute Couture 2014

    2014 Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Beauty Trends-Chanel Haute CoutureEach model rocked a sequin cap with a feathered, extremely piece-y up-do. We love this rocker goes glam inspired look complete with metallic winged eyeliner. The silver and gold glow on the eyes reminds of Winter and the holidays!

    Atelier Versace Haute Couture 2014

    Atelier Versace Haute Couture 2014-Paris Haute Couture Beauty TrendsMove over barely there eye makeup. It looks like Atelier Versace went all out with an all over eye color and gave new meaning to winged eyes. Instead of a winged tip, these models had fully winged eyelids in teal for a sultry dramatic effect, which was balanced with nude lips and high slick backed top knots! This look has 70's disco party all over it and we are ready to put on a jumper and dance.

    On Aura Tout Vu Haute Couture 2014

    On Aura Tout Vu Haute Couture- 2014 Paris Haute Couture Beauty TrendsThe models for this show walked in an ethereal water wonderland with violet shadowed, sunken eyes, also lined in metallic silvers giving an icy winter presence. The tight pin curls on the models have a wet look, which ties in with the entire Haute Couture collection being inspired by water. We can certainly get "aboard" with this look for the Fall and Winter months ahead.

    Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall 2014

    2014 Paris Haute Couture Beauty Trends-Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall 2014We thought adhesive eyelashes were a miracle, but we didn't know what was coming next. Makeup artists for the Christian Dior Haute Couture show kept the trending curve going with metallic eyes, only with the exception of using silver adhesive liners instead. We would give these "Velvet Eyes" adhesive liners a go for their perfect shapes, bold colors, and long wear appeal.

    After reviewing our favorite beauty trends of 2014's Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, we feel less disappointed knowing Summer will eventually come to an end. Knowing we will have exciting makeup, hair, and fashion trends to look forward to certainly puts our minds at ease!

    Which of the above trends did you like or dislike? Are there any you would be willing to try for the 2014 Fall and Homecoming season?

  • Pixie Parties!

    Have you attended a "pixie party" yet? Probably not, since it's not something you necessarily attend; it's more of a movement. Pixie haircuts are taking over our favorite Hollywood hotties and we're loving the fresh and fun hair-do!

    Pixie cuts are so prominent that almost every magazine has picked out their favorite starlets that switched from long locks to pixie cuts. We've gathered up our favorites - take a look below!

    sev-cos-01-jennifer-lawrence-pixie-lgnJennifer Lawrence - The Roo Crew are HUGE fans of The Hunger Games, so it's no surprise that J. Law topped our pixie list. Rumor has it thst the reason she traded in her long Katniss braid for short blonde hair is due to the damage dying constantly has caused to her locks. Either way, we think she looks gorgeous.

    sev-celebs-with-short-hair-shailene-woodley-lgnShailene Woodley - We can't even begin to describe how excited we are for Shailene to star in The Fault in Our Stars - another bestselling book turned movie. She chopped all her hair off to play the role of Hazel Grace, a cancer survivor, and after the big cut she donated her hair to a nonprofit called "Children with Hairloss."

    Charlize-Theron-Glamour-7oct13_pa_b_592x888Charlize Theron - We loved Charlize as the Queen in "Snow White and the Hunstman" which is why we're not surprised that she picked a hairstyle suited for royalty.

    anne-hathaway_glamour_7may2013_pa_bAnne Hathaway - It is widely known that Anne chopped her long Princess-Diaries locks off for her lead role in Le Miserables. However, what most people don't know is that she is having an extremely hard time with the hair growing back. We're not upset about it because we're totally loving her pixie princess look!

    With the New Year almost here, a pixie haircut is definitely a great look to try out for a New You! Just print out a picture of your favorite hairstyle and bring it to your stylist! Which celeb is rocking your favorite pixie cut? Comment below to share!

  • Get Bella Thorne's Gorgeous Red Hair

    Bella Thorne is known for shakin' it up on the Disney Channel TV show "Shake It Up," but she's also known for something else...her gorgeous red hair, of course! Ever wonder how she keeps her locks so perfect? HollywoodLife.com recently got the scoop on how how! Read on to see what they had to say.

    Bella-Thorne-red-hair

    Maintaining a vibrant hair color seems like a hard task, but HollywoodLife.com revealed that it doesn't have to be difficult at all. They said that using L’Oréal Professionnel Inoa Color Care makes maintaining that vibrant look a cinch. Available at salons like Warren-Tricomi in New York City, this line of products includes the Protective Cream Shampoo, which contains an excess amount of nutrients in order to prolong the intensity and shine of color-treated hair. The line also contains the Protective Cream Conditioner, which provides hair with a barrier on the surface to keep color looking vibrant. HollywoodLife.com also added in, "It also provents harmful aggressors from fading the color!" The Protective Maque is the final product in this hair care line, which hydrates dry hair while protecting the color, leaving hair silky and shiny.
