    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.

  • Styling your Hair with your Flat Iron

    We all know that we would be lost without our hair straightener right? But, most of us don’t even know all of the cool things you can actually do with your hair straightener if you have the right one.  Us being the Roo Girls that we are, we've done extensive research on cute hairstyles, and having a good hair straightener is definitely part of that!

    Buying a Hair Straightener

    Looking for that perfect straightener for yourself? You can definitely find a lot of information on the internet about which ones to purchase! If you've done your own research on hair straighteners already, you've probably found what we've found, which is that most websites we've searched say that the number one hair straightener is the "Sedu" or "GHD." My personal favorite, as well as the favorite of some others of the Rissy Roo's staff, is the “Chi,” though. They're a little pricey (just like any good straightener), typically selling anywhere from $70.00 to $150.00, but totally worth every penny. They are rated with good quality and I personally have never had a problem with them. Plus, if you can get a super chic one like the zebra CHI above, can you really go wrong?? Whether the Sedu, GHD, or Chi, you'll find yourself with a good, dependable, long-lasting straightener.

    Ideas to Try with your Straightener

    Looking for some style tips to try out with your straightener? Below are some ideas for you!

    Did you know that you can crimp your hair with a flat iron? Wait until you try it, it looks so fabulous! Here’s a how-to from Cosmopolitan Magazine:

    “To create a cool crimp like Jennifer Hudson’s, starting with straight locks, grab a one-inch section of hair and position your flat iron at the root. Begin twisting your wrist back and forth, slowly, as you glide the iron all the way down to your ends. Repeat until all strands have been tended to.”

    You can also make those sexy girl waves, which is also pretty easy to do with your flat iron. Here’s how Cosmopolitan says to get the look:

    "Score sexy, undone curls, like Kate Hudson’s by starting with the flat iron near your scalp. Wrap a one-inch section around the flat iron plates as you simultaneously turn the flat iron away from your head (similar to how you would curl a ribbon with a scissor). Continue pulling the iron down the section of hair until you reach the ends. Repeat until your entire head is curled and voilà!"

    Most importantly for us girls who when their hair is dry from the shower it gets wavy and frizzy (like me), a flat iron can be your best friend! When straightening your hair, all you have to do is simply run small strands of your hair through the iron and your hair turns out nice and straight, shiny flat and sexy!

  • Cap-Friendly Graduation Hairstyles!

    Graduation is coming soon and you already got your outfit and of course your cap and gown. There's only a few finishing touches you have to make before your big day.

We pinned some awesome hairstyle suggestions that are cap-friendly to our "Prom Hairstyles" Pinterest board (because they're perfect for prom, too!) that you can check out, with our favorites below. They're simple hairstyles than anyone can do on their own and that are also sure to last you all day. Check them out below!

    Natural Waves

    If the actual event is indoors,  then you have many options. If you're thinking of letting your hair down, give your hair some body and waves like the examples below. If you're worried about the cap not being able to stay on your head, make sure you bring extra bobby pins to secure the cap in place. Your hair blown out for an outdoor ceremony wouldn't be able to handle the humidity. Natural waves are your best friend. Using hot tools or just hair product can get you that look!

  • Tips on How to Get Prom Ready

    Prom is only weeks away, and we're sure that you're ready to bust a move on the dance floor. But, before the biggest night of the year, you have to make sure everything goes perfect...down to the nitty gritty details! In order to have a stress-free night, try to get everything done way in advance and have a handy check list. We are here to guide you through this stressful preparation, so we came up with important tips to follow for your dazzling night! This is a great list to print out and keep with you in the coming weeks to make sure there's nothing you forget!

    Make sure your dress is tailored to perfection

    Most of the time, dresses don't fit perfectly. You don't want to be uncomfortable and swimming in your dress! Go to the right seamstress and have her tailor it to your size and length. The length is especially important - you don't want it dragging on the dance floor. Make sure to bring the shoes you plan on wearing that night so that the seamstress can hem the dress properly.

    Choose your Hair Style

    Your hair is crucial! Make sure you book your appointment early enough in the day to give yourself plenty of time to get ready for Prom - you don't want to be late! Search for hairstyle ideas online and in magazines and bring pictures in with you so that the hairdresser knows what you want. You should also consider how it will look with your dress. Up-dos and half up-dos are great for one shoulder or high neck dresses. Strapless gowns can go with just about any hairstyle. One fun way to keep track of the hairstyles you like and compare them to each other is to make a Pinterest board.

    Makeup and Nails to Compliment your Dress

    You might want to book an appointment for makeup and nails also. You never know how crowded your favorite nail salon might be or how long the wait is for makeup. Getting a manicure and pedicure a couple days before is a great way for making prom day errands easier - just make sure that you don't chip them! If your prom dress is loaded with beads or has super bright colors, it's better to tone down your makeup and nails. Neutral nail colors and neutral eyeshadow colors are best with bright colors, lots of beading, and print. If you are wearing a neutral colored dress, you can go crazy...bold lips and bright nail polish for a pop of color!

    Add some Bling with Jewelry

    Prom Jewelry

    Jewelry is another important detail. It for the most part has the same makeup and nails rule; if you're wearing a blinged out sequin dress, you're going to want to tone down the jewelry. Otherwise, you'll have sparkle overload! Too much can overkill your whole look, so try to keep it simple.

    Complete your Look with your Shoes

    Prom shoes

    Your shoes are what completes your look. You don't want to look like your in pain in a gorgeous dress. Practice makes perfect! Try breaking them in a few weeks before. If that doesn't help, try slipping in padding or insoles. If your shoes are too tight, find a local shoe repairman and have them stretched out. You'll have a more confident walk!

    Add a Hint of Personality with your Purse

    A purse is always a great way to add some personality to any outfit. Pick a simple bag that blends in with your dress, or choose a funky clutch that's the statement piece of your outfit! Just remember, depending on your dress and jewelry, you don't want to be too blinged out.

    Don't forget your Camera!

    Of course, the most important accessory of all is your camera! It's a special night, and you'll want to take all the photos you can. Whether a disposable, a point-and-shoot, or the handy dandy camera on your smart phone, just make sure that you have plenty of room to take lots and lots of pictures. And, ideally, have something small enough that fits in your purse!

  • How to Find Your Prom Hairstyle

    Prom Dress? Check! Shoes? Check! Purse? Check! Your prom outfit isn't quite finished yet, though! Your prom hairstyle is the icing on the cake to finish your perfect prom look, so if you haven't started thinking about what to do with your lovely locks yet, it's time to do so!

    Braids are a popular trend this year, and Bella Thorne rocks the look so well!

    When it comes to deciding how to do your hair, there are four rules that will lead you down the right path to the perfect look:

    1. Just as we started this post, make sure you choose your dress first. Your hair style should complement your dress, not compete with it! If you have a busy dress, picking a simple hairstyle may be the way to go. Or, if you choose a certain style of dress, you want to make sure that your hair follows that style.
    2. Keep your personality in mind. Your number one priority at prom should be making sure you feel comfortable, and that includes everything from feeling confident in the dress you choose to the hairstyle and make-up you wear. If you're a more casual girl that isn't the biggest fashionista, then going with a more simple hairstyle may be right for you. If you love dressing up from head to toe every day, find the perfect formal up-do to rock all night!
    3. Don't fight your natural hair texture; work with it. If you're going to a hair salon to get your hair done, ask your stylist what would look best with your hair type. If you'll be doing your own hair, there's plenty of sites on the internet with recommendations for what to try for various hair types.
    4. Remember that it's the Information Age; with how the internet is becoming increasingly more social, your prom photos are bound to be around for years to come. Choose a hairstyle that's timeless and won't be embarrassing 30 years from now!
