  • StyleBell Scoop: New Year, New Blog

    From the Editor

    Hi Everyone!
    Don't you just love this time of year? The weather is colder, the days are hectic but fun, families get together and you can glam it up all you want without looking over dressed. It's the perfect time to meet up with close friends, drink hot chocolate (with extra marshmallows and no guilt) and show off those fabulous new boots you've been waiting to wear. Now that it's 2008, I can already feel the excitement that comes with a New Year new beginnings, good friends, and puffy white snow (that hopefully won�t wreck my new boots LOL). Happy New Year!

    Ask an Expert
    What's so great about Ionic Technology
    Great question right? Basically, everyone's hair carries a positive electrical charge that is caused by dryness. Over time, this charge increases, and as your hair becomes drier, more hair cuticles open, creating ragged unhealthy looking (and feeling) hair that, let's be honest, looks like it has seen better days. Enter the flat iron, or hair dryer that creates negative ions. When the appliance is heated, negative ions are created and these negative ions cancel out the positive hair charges. When you glide down your hair with the iron, or blow dry, you are actually smoothing down those ragged open hair cuticles, sealing in your hair's own natural oils and moisture. Read more

    Celeb Style we Love

    ReeseDon't you just love Reese's hair in this picture? It's so shiny and silky and her highlights look amazing. Wish you could get this silky straight look? No worries! Before you straighten, work a little ghd smoothing balm through your hair to calm and relax any texture or curls you may have. Then work your wonders with your flat iron. After straightening, smooth on a tiny dab of Terax gloss finishing serum to keep the frizz at bay and create an award winning shine.

  • Top 5 Hair Resolutions for the New Year!

    new year new hair, hair resolutions, new years hair resolutions, hair resolutions, hair solutions, new hair for the new year, new year hair

    Well, the new year is all about having a fresh start, right? So... we've rounded up a list of our favorite ways to start the new year with happy healthy hair and some of the easiest ways to keep your hair happy all year long. If you commit to following these simple steps, we can almost guarantee that you will see a HUGE difference in your hair, making for one less resolution next year! ;)

    1.) Start off with a clean slate: Starting the year with a new hair cut or a fresh trim will not only make you and your hair feel good but it will set you up with a healthy palette to build your happy hair resolution off of! Although we still recommend maintaining trims every 4-8 weeks, getting a nice heavy trim right into the new year will help you say goodbye to any styling damage from the previous year and give yourself another shot at doing things right! Plus, it's a great way to monitor your maintenance with steps 2-4!

    2.) Commit to a cool rinse: After conditioning, a cool rinse will seal in all the benefits of the conditioner and seal the cuticle. This will prevent excessive moisture loss during styling and help prevent breakage. The added bonus of this step, sealing the cuticle smooths out rough surfaces of the hair shaft, leaving the hair in it's most shiny state.

    3.) Use a spray on, conditioning, detangler: Before even thinking about taking a comb or brush to your hair, always use a light weight leave-in conditioner or detangler to help hair glide through the process more easily. We recommend the  Maijan Frizz Eliminator which is an all-in-one product that will not only help detangle but condition your hair and add thermal heat protection all at the same time! Why do we recommend a spray on? We believe this helps distribute the product most evenly from root to tip without weighing the hair down.

    4.) Detangle with a comb or brush that is meant for detangling: Rather than grabbing any old comb or brush that will only add to the pre-existing knots in our hair, opt to purchase a brush that is specifically designed to help detangle the hair and work out the knots in the least harsh way possible. We recommend the Knot Genie or Wet Brush -- they will make detangling a breeze!

    5.) Research the proper heat settings for your hair appliances: This is probably the most important step out of all of them. I know the urge to crank the heat all the way up is very VERY tempting in the fast paced world we live in, but trust me, it's not doing you any favors in the long run. If you have fine, fragile hair, keep hair at a lower heat setting to prevent over frying and over drying. It is crucial to follow this rule to prevent breakage and unnecessary damage. Heat is not a bad thing if it is properly controlled!

    We hope this helps jump start your healthy start to a new year!

  • Perfect Stocking Stuffers for Beauty Junkies

    With the holidays officially upon us, I thought it might be fun to share some stocking stuffer or small gift ideas for beauty junkies. The great thing about shopping for beauty junkies is there are certain things we can always use more of, and many of them are very affordable! Despite their small packaging, many beauty products have big price tags - I don't know about you, but a $30 lipstick is not a stocking stuffer! Here are some that I would suggest when shopping for the beauty fiend on your list.

    tweezers, blingy tweezers, stocking stuffers, rhinestone tweezers, beauty accessories1. Tweezers - Tweezers are one of the most useful little things for any girl's purse, and yet they're so easy to lose track of. You can always use an extra pair, and when they're bedazzled like the ones pictured at left (Forever 21, $1.80) they're even more fun and festive.

    2. Bobby Pins - You can never have too many bobby pins. I once had an updo that required me to wear 15 in one night! Plus I'm always losing the dang things...it's a good thing they're so cheap. If you really want to be fancy you can get colored ones, but since I have dark hair I prefer basic black. Most of the time a pack of basic bobby pins won't set you back more than a couple dollars.

    3. Cotton Rounds - Okay you might think getting cotton rounds as a gift might sound totally lame, but as someone who uses the heck out of these I can tell you I'd be THRILLED. It's one less thing I'd have to buy myself, and I use them for so many things! Manicures, applying facial treatment, toner, etc. I like the ones that are slightly textured; they're great for tough to remove nail polishes like, those with glitter. Which brings me to...

    nail polish, glitter nail polish4. Nail Polish - DUH! Who wouldn't like to receive a little bottle of fun-colored goodness in their stocking?! There are some great nail polishes to be found for $5 or less from brands such as NYX, Milani, Wet 'n Wild, and Sinful Colors.

    5. Hair Elastics - Another pesky thing that is super useful but seems to get itself lost all the time. Where do all these rogue hair elastics go?! It doesn't matter how many I have; I would always welcome more hair elastics. I prefer the "ouchless" or non-metal elastics because they don't snag and yank your hair out. Little tiny elastics (they're very thin, made out of plastic) are great for the hot braided styles that are everywhere these days, too.

    6. Blot Papers - Is the beauty junkie on your shopping list a bit on the...um, shiny side? Blot papers are a great stocking stuffer. You might want to get them for someone you know uses them though, to avoid an unfortunate awkward moment if the receiver doesn't know they need them. ;) I just found out that Forever 21 even has scented blot papers. Cool!

    7. At-Home Facial Masks - You've seen these at every drugstore, I'm sure. They're nifty 1-time use face masks in a little packet. Great for a quick gift, and who doesn't need a little pampering between holiday get togethers?

    8. Makeup Brushes - I have dozens of makeup brushes. Most makeup addicts do. And yet, I think most of us would say one can never have too many. Not all good makeup brushes have to be super expensive. I mean yeah I love my MAC brushes but they're not all I use! E.L.F. actually has some surprisingly good brushes from $1-3. I recommend the studio powder brush (pictured, right) or their essential eyeshadow brush. You can get E.L.F. brushes from Target.

    9. Lip Balm - I am never without lip balm. I have like, 4 of them in my desk as I'm writing this, at least one in my purse, another by the bed...okay well you get the idea. I can't help myself; I live in the desert. All those fancy shmancy lipsticks and glosses aren't going to do you any good if your lips look a mess, and lip balm will fix that. I've seen every flavor from cherry to cheez-it to no flavor at all, so have fun picking something out you know the beauty junkie on your shopping list will love!

    10. When In Doubt, Travel Size - Mini sizes of our favorite shampoos, conditioners, lotions, etc. are cute as they are functional. If you know your best beauty bud loves a certain lotion, a mini size for her purse would be a delightful surprise. You'll be a gift giving hero!

    Whether you're the one doing the shopping, or if you're leaving some subtle "hints" for your loved ones, this guide is sure to get you off to a great start. Happy shopping!
