Common Mistakes People Commit While Washing their Hair

You may not realize it, but you may be committing a few mistakes while washing
your hair. We have compiled some of the most common mistakes people commit.
Read on and try to tweak your shower routine for a more manageable and
healthy-looking hair.

Washing it everyday
Stylists believe that our hair is at its best when the natural oil reaches the ends.
Thus, they recommended washing your hair every other day or at least twice a
week.

If your strands start to get a bit greasy, you can spray your roots with water or dry
shampoo and style it using a blow-dryer.

Switching up shampoos

Most people believe that switching shampoos could help them achieve
healthier-looking hair. However, experts believe that it is best to find the shampoo
that works for you and stick with it.

You hair might not be able to tell the difference between those hair products but it
is important to find that product that works best for you. Also, if you have oily hair
and you use waxy hair products on a regular basis, then it would be best to
incorporate a clarifying shampoo into your shower routine at least once or twice a
month to wash away the residues.

Skipping the conditioner

If you wish to have a shinier hair, conditioning your hair every time you wash is
recommended. Conditioners help reduce breakage and cuts down friction when you
brush your hair.

Since shampoo could be harsh to your hair, conditioning your hair without
shampooing could also be a great alternative. While conditioner may not be able to
cleanse your hair like most shampoo does, it would still leave your hair looking and
feeling nice.

Hot showers

Warm showers could open up your hair cuticles; thus, allowing shampoo and
conditioner to perform their job. Meanwhile, cold water could close up your hair’s                                                                             cuticles and seal in moisture. As a result, you’ll be rewarded with shiny and
healthy-looking hair. If cold shower doesn’t sound appealing to you, you can pour 2 cups of water mixed
with a cup of apple cider vinegar over your hair after you shower. Vinegar helps
remove dandruff and product build-up from your scalp.

Common Mistakes of Promotional Marketing

While most business owners believe in the power of using promotional products as a marketing tool, they could also be ineffective in some cases. Most of the time, promoters get too caught up in the daily rush of satisfying their clients and making a sale to take some time off to analyze why their promotions are not always successful.

In this article, we’ll discuss a few common mistakes that most companies commit when planning and executing a promotion. Read on as we give you a few tips on how to make your next promotions a success

Not allowing enough lead time

Most companies could produce promotional products very quickly. However, please avoid betting your whole promotion on it. To be on the safe side, start your research and planning at least 90 days before the event.

You also have to consider that things may not go as smoothly as planned. By placing your orders a few weeks in advance, you can be sure that everything is done right.

Ineffective distribution

More often than not, distribution plans are not followed. For example, you ordered 300 items to give out to your best customer. However, those items never get in the hands of those people.

Maybe your sales people failed to notice those promotional items getting piled up in the storage room. This could be a waste of time, money and resources. This could be avoided through proper planning and following through. Mind you, the dumpster is not one of your customers.

Focusing only on the price

The items that you hand out to your customers could make a lasting impression about your business. Mind you, handing out cheap items could be worse than giving out nothing at all. Plus, you won’t be remembered fondly if the pen that stops writing or the product falls apart after a day.

When choosing a promotional item, make sure that it’s durable yet inexpensive. That extra $250 could make a big difference on the success of your promotion.

Handing it out to the wrong people

It feels nice to give out cool and interesting items. However, keep in mind that the purpose of giving out these items is to attract your current and prospective clients and entice them to purchase your products.

How To: Easy Waterfall Braid Tutorial

From the moment Pinterest introduced me to this slightly disheveled romantic look last year, I’ve been trying to figure out how the heck to get my hands on an easy waterfall braid hairstyle tutorial. Finally, enlightenment: This month, we convinced Davines hairstylistChristine Zilinski to create the look on Birchbox editor Meredith’s hair. As it turns out, this soft, braided style is much easier than it looks. If you’ve mastered the French braid and are getting a little bored with the fishtail braid, the waterfall braid should be next on your list to try. Here’s how you do it:

1) Pick three sections of hair near your temple and begin braiding as if you were doing a French braid.

2) Once you cross the top section of your hair over, drop that piece so it hangs.

3) Pick up another piece of hair from the bottom to replace the dropped section.

4) Continue adding hair to the top section as well, as you would add to a French braid.

Watch this video to see the braid in action and learn how to finish the style.

What a Winter Wedding Means for Your Hairstyle

So you have chosen to have white winter wedding – congratulations! Now the question is what to do for your wedding hairstyle during the winter. One factor to consider is where most of the wedding, and wedding photos are taking place.

 

If most of your wedding and wedding photos will be taking place inside, wearing your hair down is a great option. Winter weather typically has very dry conditions, so be sure to use a product that will keep your wedding locks moisturized, soft, and shiny. Not sure weather to go up or down? Do both! Having half of your hair pulled up, allowing soft ringlets to escape down the back with create an elegant and soft look, while also showing off your face.

 

If your will have to stand up to any of the elements, an up-do may be the way to go. Up-dos are always a great choice, especially if your wedding is on the formal side. Consider a tight bun with a slight part in the front – it is classic and chic. Let a few curls escape to create a very romantic look.

 

The important thing to remember is that your final hairstyle should be able to hold through picture taking, any elements, dancing, and all the hugs you are bound to get! Winter weddings tend to be white, bright, and sparkly. Adding a jeweled barrette, a pearl hair clip, or small white flowers can help to create that perfect winter bride look.

The Best Bangs for Your Face Shape

Thinking about changing your look this season? Adding bangs can be a great way to go! Before taking the plunge, finding out what bangs will suit your face shape best is a good idea.

If your face is on the rounder side, consider a gentle arching fringe. If your face is round, it is likely you have softer features.  You want to be sure to avoid making your round face seem fuller. Asking for a more curved shape will actually flatter and bring out your cheekbones.

The Best Bangs for Your Face Shape

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Side bangs are perfect for a heart shaped face. The side swept bang tends to bring attention downwards to the eyes. If your face is heart shaped, the bangs should be layered and feathered. The shortest pieces should fall just barely on the arch of your eyebrows, and the longer outside piece should hit the corner of your eye.

If you have a square face, consider long eye-grazing bangs. Ask for them to be tapered on the sides, this will add a softer element to a square face shape. The key to these kinds of bangs is that they must hit in exactly the right spot. A good tip to master this is to ask your hairdresser to cut them just slightly below the brows with the heavier stronger pieces on the side (you don’t want them in the way of your eyes!
