Wedding After-Hour Beauty To-Do’s

You’ve been planning the “big day” for how many months now? Well, all your planning is finally coming together today!

You haven’t had an adequate amount of sleep for the last two weeks because you had to make sure you got plum ribbon for the center pieces instead of mauve. You haven’t eaten a home cooked meal, washed your hair, or done laundry in a week because you still haven’t gotten the caterer’s to confirm they’ll have enough silverware for all of your guests.

Your time has come to walk down the aisle and you’re ready to FINALLY just have a good time. You say “I do”, dance until your feet are literally ready to fall off, and then it’s just you and your new hubby.

But, you’re not done yet. I know, I know all you want to do is kick off your heels and go to bed, but you can’t!

NOT YET

NOT YET

1) Take off ALL of your makeup.

2) Wash your face because we know you didn’t NOT break a sweat in that hot tight, sexy dress of yours during the Wobble.

3) Moisturize. Just do it. You and I both know it’s one of the most important steps to gorgeous skin.

4) Brush your hair.. It’ll be a lot easier for what’s next… But save all of those bobby pins, Lord knows your vacuum doesn’t need to suck up anymore.

5)Take a shower, and actually wash your mane, please. You have enough dry shampoo and hairspray in your hair if somebody lit a flame twenty feet away, your hair would be the first thing it’d catch.

Last, but not least, brush your teeth. Burping up fresh mint is a lot more appealing than shrimp cocktail. Leave stank-breath for the morning.

Never EVER sacrifice beauty for being tired, even if it is your wedding night.

Stay Lovely!

Hair Blunders

We all want that luscious, bouncy, frizz-free, movie star hair, right?!? The way we wash, dry and style our hair can seriously affect its appearance.  Take care of that pretty hair of yours and steer clear of these five bad habits…

  1. Being too much of a clean freak. When you wash your hair daily, you strip away all of your good natural oil–when it’s constantly washed it sends a signal  for your scalp to produce more oil. Try a dry shampoo instead.  You’ll notice the difference–just be patient.
  2. Not brushing before you wash. Ohhhhhhhhhh so that’s why my wet hair is so dang tangled!  Wet hair is weak hair so it’s certainly more prone to damage if it’s wet when you brush.
  3. Haphazard Conditioning. Using too much product is counter productive because it weighs down your hair and can lead to buildup…yet another reason why you can’t get that hair “Texas big”.  Try using less and not using as much at the roots.
  4. Skipping Heat Protection. Okay, we all know it’s best to not blow-dry or use hot tools at all, but hello we want Blake Lively hair! If possible, try to let your mane air dry naturally as often as possible and then only blow dry when it’s 75% dry. Start with a good heat protectant like Moroccan Oil Heat Spray. Smells amazing and it’ll protect your hair from that wand or hairdryer.
  5. Using Hot Irons on Damp Hair.   Doi. Hair should be completely dry before heat styling, period. Even when you’re in a rush.

Raise your hand if you haven’t washed your hair in a couple days?

If you’re a daily washer, that’s cool, but if not you have got to try Dry Bar’s Detox Dry Shampoo. Not only does it smell delicious, but it gives you the BEST, bouncy, J Lo hair.

Part hair, spray, tousle with your fingers, then part the opposite way and repeat. Flip your head upside down, give it a shake and voila!
