Sophisticate’s Blog:             DIY Summer Beauty


Summer is officially in full swing with warm weather, short shorts and lots of swimming! But, all that summer fun brings a beating to your luxurious locks and flawless face. Luckily, Josie Feria, Director of Spa Operations at Lapis Spa at the Fontainebleau, in Miami Beach, FL, will whip your hair and skin back in shape with these spa-inspired DIY tricks…

1. Prepare a pot of boiling water with several bags of chamomile tea; allow tea to steep and release benefits into water.

2. Place face over steaming pot and cover head with towel to trap steam. You are stimulating the benefits of a steam room.

3. Remove face from steam and place cucumbers or icy, damp chamomile tea bags on eyes to reduce puffiness.

4. Dab off excess moisture and apply scrub cream to face in gentle circular and upward motions to face, neck and chest. Place emphasis on chin, jaw and neck to help lift any ingrown facial hairs.

5. Rinse thoroughly with a warm, moist washcloth and apply witch hazel or rose or lavender water using a spray bottle or a cotton pad.

6. Apply moisture lotion or cream in upward, relaxing massage strokes, placing slight pressure on temples and under forehead bridge line to release tension.

Instant result: clean, shiny skin with improved texture and appearance!

1. Mix lemon juice and warm green tea; apply mixture to scalp with brush or applicator as you separate hair; pour remaining amount through hair.

2. Allow mixture to remain on scalp for a few minutes—the tea and lemon work as an astringent to cleanse scalp and hair follicles.

3. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and apply a combination of plain yogurt and avocado—mix 2 parts fresh avocado and 2 parts yogurt. Massage into the hair in circular motions to relax the scalp and stimulate hair growth.

4. Gently massage temples and base of scalp line. Place plastic shower cap over avocado/yogurt mix on hair and wrap in warm towel for 10 minutes or until towel cools off. Rinse thoroughly.

Instant result: hair that’s softer and shinier, with improved circulation to scalp (an aide to healthy hair growth!).

Follow a haircolor regimen that’s convenient for you. Talk to your stylist about how often you are comfortable coming back to the salon so that he or she can choose the best option for your needs.

Sophisticate’s Blog:             Pretty Little Ashley


Screen shot 2013-07-30 at 11.51.56 AM

Whether actress Ashley Benson is starring as Queen Bee Hanna Marin on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars or sizzling on the big screen in Spring Breakers, she’s always turning heads with her tress talent. Ready to steal her style? We’ll give you a sneak peak into all of Ashley’s hair and beauty secrets right here, but be sure to pick up a copy of the latest issue of SHG for all the can’t-miss details.

“I feel more myself when I’m a brunette, to be honest,” Ashley shares. “I love dark hair, dark clothing.”
“When I’m in a rush or on the go, I wear my hair wavy,” reveals Ashley. “First, I work dry shampoo through my hair to get some volume going on, then, using a texture balm, I start to work it through my strands. Lastly, flipping my hair upside-down, I start to crunch my hair with my fingers. I also use a little spray gel so the waves stick—plus, it makes my hair look sleek!”
“A good eyeliner is key,” the star spills. “Nars Eyeliner Stylo is one of my favorites to use.”

FABULOUS HAIR by Ken Paves


Ken Paves
You want it, and mane pro Ken Paves can tell you how to get it…at any age! Stylist Paves counts stars like Eva Longoria, Victoria Beckham among his clients, and he’s written a book titled You Are Beautiful. In our October issue, we feature an exclusive excerpt where Ken tells Sophisticate’s reader how to have beautiful hair, no matter what age you are. Here’s a sneak peek!

Ken Paves
In Your Teens and 20s…
“If there’s ever a time to be adventurous with your hair, it’s when you’re in your [teens and] twenties. While I don’t necessarily like to follow trends, I give [you] a free pass to be ‘trendy’ and experiment with different looks.”

Ken Paves
In Your 30s…
“You know more now than you did when you were younger, and you are getting a better handle on things. I like to think you’re becoming more polished—and your hair should reflect that.”

Ken Paves
In Your 40s…
“I find that many women in their forties resort to getting a haircut like their mothers have. That’s not a bad thing, but you don’t have to get your mom’s haircut now, if ever. Today’s forty is not yesterday’s forty.”

Ken Paves
In Your 50s, 60s, +
“I think it’s particularly important at this time in your life for you to be the one who reminds the world (and yourself) that you’ve still got it!”
