Sophisticate's Daily Dose Of Style
Beauty Changes Lives
August 23, 2016

The Beauty Changes Lives Foundation is calling on beauty and wellness professionals, salons and industry partners to share tips of wealth and wisdom with Next Generation beauty talent with their ScholarTips campaign.

Since 2013, the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation has cultivated and administered scholarships for aspiring hairstylists, estheticians, nail professionals, massage therapists and make-up artists. The Foundation has helped to launch the careers of nearly 300 beauty and wellness professionals. ScholarTips provides an opportunity for the industry to channel its history of generosity and pay forward its success by supporting the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation.

“Tips and generosity go hand-in-hand in the beauty and wellness business. Whether it’s sharing a hard-learned lesson or giving a hand up to a newcomer waiting to take her place behind the chair, ScholarTips provides an opportunity for all of us to support the future of our industry,” said Lynelle Lynch, president of the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation. “As back-to-school season gets underway, we have an opportunity to help Next Generation talent pursue the gift of education.”

Styling Like Selena
August 22, 2016

styling like selena

Selena Gomez is on tour and tearing up the style scene with her on-stage fashions and toss-my-hair-like-so silhouettes. Pantene Celebrity Stylist Marissa Marino is styling Pantene Brand Ambassador Selena Gomez’s hair for one of summer’s hottest concerts. Marino’s biggest secret to maintaining Selena’s perfect, natural waves is simple: keep hair strong and healthy to help prevent frizz when traveling to various cities with different climates, and help prevent and repair damage from the excessive use of styling tools.

Here are a few tips from Marino on how you can create your own strong, beautiful, frizz-free waves just like Selena’s.

>>“Wash and condition hair with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to help nourish curls without weighing them down.”

>>“I also always tell Selena to air dry her hair whenever possible, as that reduces that amount of heat I’m using on her hair and protects it from getting damaged—and I highly recommend doing this on a regular basis.”

 >>“Once hair is dry, apply Pantene Pro-V’s Smooth Anti-Humidity Airspray as a finishing spray to help prevent frizz and secure beautiful curls.”

10 Tips For Great Hair
August 18, 2016

10 tips for great hair

Time for the 411! Super stylist Daniel Raboh shares his 10 need-to-know tips for great hair…

TIP 1
After shampoo and conditioning, be sure to rinse your hair thoroughly. Left-over product dulls hair.

TIP 2
Distributing conditioner through your hair with a wide-toothed comb will leave your hair shiny and tangle-free.

TIP 3
Apply conditioner from mid-lengths to ends. Conditioning your roots will weigh your hair down.

TIP 4
If your hair is really dry, deep-condition at home. Apply conditioner to clean, damp hair, slip on a plastic cap and let your hair absorb the conditioner for 30 minutes before rinsing.

TIP 5
Rubbing your hair with a towel when it’s wet can ruffle the cuticle and cause tangles, so gently squeeze out excess water.

TIP 6
Before blow-drying, protect your hair with a styling product such as a conditioning milk, cream or serum.

TIP 7
Move your blow-dryer from roots to ends to avoid frizz and shredding your hair cuticles.

TIP 8
For smooth results, brush as you blow-dry in the same direction. It will prevent your cuticle from roughing up.

TIP 9
Make sure your hair is thoroughly dry before styling with a flat iron or curling iron to avoid frizz.

TIP 10
For a fuller look, part or style your hair in the opposite direction.

A Different Bob

a different bob

If you love to be a trendy girl, but with your own unique vibe, here’s the best of both worlds. Hairdresser Wade Blackford, of Chumba Concept Salon in Melbourne, Australia, created an of-the-moment-silhouette with this bob cut, but customized it with piecey bangs and a rounded shape with tapering along the edges. It’s a win-win look with a lot of chic.
