The other day as I was browsing through refinery29 and this ponytail caught my eye! Mainly because until I was about 15, my go to hairstyle was a high ponytail and my hair has a natural wave to it, so it kind of made me a bit nostalgic about my ‘youth hairstyle.’ I also think that it looks quite cool and chic, maybe because its paired with my favorite makeup combo of eyeliner and lipstick. Anyway I think this is a pretty good hairstyle and quite easy. Might do a tutorial on this for fun. What do you think? Have you been rocking the ponytail style?

Every since I saw the Gucci 2012 collection (above) and subsequent bleached brows on the internet, I have been obsessed with bleaching my eyebrows. Of course I was a bit hesistant because it’s a pretty edgy trend and obviously not one that is easy to pull off. I decided to do it anyway since its easy to tint eyebrows back. I bought refectocil in blonde, mixed it with the oxidant and waited 20 minutes. It produced a reddish-blonde color but that was probably because I didn’t cover them completely but I guess that takes practice. Overall I think it looks cool in pictures but if you keep it that color you have to commit to dramatic makeup which I’m not going to do. Anyway it was fun and I’m glad it’s finally off my chest! What do you think!
Last week I read an article in stylist magazine about Chanel’s 2012 long awaited for grey blush. Grey blush? I had never thought of wearing anything but tones of pink, brown, or red on my cheeks so the idea intrigued me. I was desperate to go out and try it but its not out yet. So of course what I decided to do was search all over the internet for descriptions of the blush as well as pictures of the look and then I found an eyeshadow that matched the color. The one I found was 17 in ‘Mardi Gras’ (£4) also Mac ‘Satin Taupe’. The color is meant to be grey, taupe with a hint of brown. The idea of the color is to give you more of a sculpted look which I agree that it did! I used it to contourh from under the apples of my cheeks to wear I suck in my cheeks then I put my normal pink blush on my cheek bones. I think this is a great look because if you put just enough on it gives you just the right contour without making your face look dirty. You can also wear it at night to give you amazing cheek bones without having to worry about putting too much on. What do you think? Would you wear grey blush?
What do Rihanna, Lana Del Rey, Kate Bosworth, and Florence Welsh have in common? Gorgeous one-color hair! Although they might have highlights and different tones in order to achieve this look the overal effect is one deep tone color. I have noticed several celebrities going for one color instead of the ever popular highlights (Beyonce, Jennifer anniston) and I like it because it looks like an enhanced natural hair color. I started becoming obsessed when I was subconsciously influenced by all the talk of Kate Middleton’s luscious brunette blow-out. And yes I have dyed my hair a dark golden brown. Yes I am now so obsessed that I want to dye it again. Everyday. Why? I don’t know.
Also, there are several at home hair colors that enhance your natural hair color; L’Oreal Casting Creme Gloss is a no ammonia semi- permanent color that can do this, or if you are happy with your natural hair color you can use color enhancing shampoo and conditioner such as John Frieda. I used Clairol Nice N’ Easy color blend foam in 5G. Most of these are available at all drugstores.
*I will post pictures soon because I’m doing a hair tutorial that I think you might find interesting. In the mean time, what do you think of this new hair trend? Yay, nay or I don’t care?
