No Heat Beach Waves

There are loads of diferent types of these no heat tutorials for this beachy hair look, and the reason to that is that most people (including me) just love that messy hair. And if you don't, just remember - embrace it! It's an all time (or maybe I should've said immortal) hairstyle that goes with everything! It's playful and can give that 'wow' effect on your whole look. So, I had to do some serious searching to find the perfect tutorial that can do the trick - and i found it! It's an easy breezy tutorial posted by the amazing Aimee Song from Song of Style. All the credit goes to her and her amazing trick!

1. Part your slightly damp hair into two sections (right and left) and start twisting from the root to all the way to the end of your hair. Make sure you twist well!

2. Using a bobby pin, pin the end of your twisted hair to the crown of your head.

3. Twist the other side of your hair in the same direction (I normally twist outwards) and pin to the crown of your head like the first side.

4. Let your hair dry naturally overnight and in the morning, unpin the ends. Shake your head and pretend your in a shampoo commercial, and voila! You got waves! If you'd like to hold the waves, top off the look with a lightweight hairspray such as the Vida Sassoon Pro Series Flexible Hold Hairspray.

Clip in bangs - Zooey Deschanel look

Hey everyone! Today is a very special day here! It's the day before Easter and everyone is painting egs and just enjoying this great sunny weather! And since I'm feeling very excited, I thought that I should post something also very spring inspired - the Zooey Deschanel inspired hairstyle!  This tutorial I've found on Bobby Glam and I must say, all of their tutorials and posts are absoloutley amazing! All very nicely put together, I love it! I also have to say that the girl in the tutorial used a clip in fringe that you can buy in their shop here.

For the full tutorial, here is the video! 
It's a very classy look, prefect if you want to try something new! And while creating this hairstyle, don't panic if the moment you put you fringe in place it doesn't look good. 
It just needs a little ajusment and practice. Soon I'll
post a similar tutorial also incuding bangs, but created
in a different way, so untill then, have fun creating this,
fun, edgy but still very classy hairstyle!

Happy Friday friends!

Kristen Stewart at the KCAs 2013: The Messy Fishtail

Hey everyone! I know it's been a long time since this year's KCA, and since all that time I've been admiring Kristen's whole look. From the cool playsuit to the amazing hair, I was blown. It just leaves an impression of youth and freedom combined with great fashion taste. Oh, and the purple smokey eyes, that the icing on the cake! I just loved it! Therefore I couldn't resist to post a great and easy hair tutorial that I've found here (click there to get more info on the products used) and plus, a makeup tutorial for her look!

Hair magician ADIR ABERGEL hooked the 22-year-old up for the night by styling her long auburn tresses in quite possibly the coolest fishtail braid I’ve ever seen. Using the Fekkai products he created this, undone, fresh and simple to recreate hairstyle. So, here is the hair tutorial (just wait a few seconds and the video will appear itself).


Kristen posed for the KCA cameras giving them a smouldering ultra-violet stare courtesy of her smoky deep purple eyes. Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist JILLIAN DEMPSEY was inspired by both her eye color and the shade of her outfit.

Before starting, Jillian had to start with a clean palette.
“I prepped her skin with CHANEL Hydra Beauty Sèrum followed by CHANEL Sublimage Essential Regenerating Fluid and then dabbed a little CHANEL Sublimage La Crème Yeux under her eyes.

I used a combination of CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 on Kristen’s face and neck and CHANEL Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer with soft focus on pigments to conceal and event out her complexion.

On the apples of her cheeks, I lightly dusted CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Initial. I then did a series of highlights on her upper cheekbones and bridge of her nose with CHANEL Exclusive Creation Poudre Signèe De Chanel Illuminating Powder.”

Now, for the eyes!
“The eyes were the cornerstone of this look. I chose CHANEL LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eyeshadow in Vanitès and relied on the deep purple shade to add depth to Kristen’s eyes. I blended and layered metallic accents on her lids to intensify the purple shades using CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Mirifique. To continue the purple iridescence theme, I traced underneath her lower lashes with CHANEL Precision Eye Definer in Violet Smoke.

I also used CHANEL Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner in Black Shimmer on her upper lash line for extra definition.
I curled the lashes and added two coats of Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir. I added a few individual lashes to finish.”

And for the perfectly pale pout?
Jillian used CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Candeur on her lips “for a natural, peachy nude hue.”
