CLEANSING LHS LUXURY HAIR EXTENSIONS…
Prior to washing, instruct your client to detangle LHS Luxury Extensions and natural hair using a loop brush or wide tooth comb. Once hair is all wet, they should apply Pureology Hydrating Shampoo. Starting at the scalp, gently work shampoo into the hair in a downward direction. Carefully massage around all attachment sites. Rinse thoroughly and repeat if necessary.
Pureology conditioner is necessary to maintain LHS Luxury Extensions. Add conditioner from the ends of the LHS Luxury Extensions upwards, always avoiding the attachment sites. Rinse thoroughly and apply any additional moisturizers. Follow the same application technique for hair masks, leave-in conditioners and detanglers.
Once finished, advise your client to use a soft towel to firmly blot (never rub) their natural hair and LHS Luxury Extensions. This will help absorb any excess water and prevent residual moisture. It is important to eliminate moisture as it can build up and cause the attachment sites to release prematurely.
DETANGLING & COMBING LHS LUXURY HAIR EXTENSIONS…
Gently detangle all hair using a loop brush or wide tooth comb. Always begin at the ends and work upwards toward
the attachment sites. It is a good idea to hold onto the attachment sites of the section being detangled. This will ensure that there is no tugging.
STYLING LHS LUXURY HAIR EXTENSIONS…
The best way to keep LHS Luxury Extensions secure and silky, is to blow dry them with cool to warm air on a low blow setting. Instruct your client to allow all hair to fully dry in order to prevent residual moisture which can damage the attachment sites. The same concept applies to spending large amounts of time in the water (consult with your client about beach/pool use).
Once the natural hair and the LHS Luxury Extensions are dry your client may use heat tools on a low or medium setting. Be very careful to instruct them to never touch a hot tool to the attachment sites. Pureology Heat protector products are recommended for both LHS Luxury Extensions and natural hair in order to preserve their integrity.
Your client may use the styling products of their choice: Hair spray, styling foam, gel, etc, may all be used on any area but the attachment sites. Shine serums and styling pomades should be applied sparingly and only towards the ends of Luxury Extensions.
NEVER attempt to PERM, COLOR or CHEMICALLY RELAX LHS Luxury Hair Extensions.
tumblrbot asked: WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER WHEN YOU ARE IN A BAD MOOD?
Getting my hair done always makes me feel better.
The Kardashian family might just be the authority when it comes to the smokey eye look. At one time, you could NEVER catch Kim without her signature smokey eye makeup, day or night. And, even mama Kris, Khloe and Kourtney have adopted the sultry look for many a red carpet appearances.
This sexy look never goes out of style and can be redefined for every individual based on their eye, hair and skin color.
To achieve a smokey eye look, you’ll need three things:
1. A multi-color eye-shadow palette
2. A good eyeliner (we like liquid eyeliner for the top lash line and pencil eyeliner for the bottom)
3. Black mascara
First thing’s first, though. How do you know which color eye-shadow is right for you? Here’s a quick guide to help you select your colors:
- Brown eyes: use dark shades of purple and violet for a twist on the traditional smokey eye
- Green eyes: dark shades of brown and gold will make your green pop
- Blue eyes: traditional black, grey and charcoal bring out your true blue eyes
- Hazel eyes: choose shades of dark brown with a black eyeliner
Creating your smokey eye
Now that you’ve got your colors, it’s time to apply. Here are a few tricks:
1. Prime your eyelid with a good eye-shadow base, this will help prevent your colors from sticking in creases
2. Use your liquid liner to trace your top lash line from the inner corner to the outer. Then, use your pencil liner to dot between your lower lashes. Smudge your bottom lash line with a cotton swab or an eyeliner brush.
3. Using an angled brush, take the darkest shadow in your multi color palette and gently smudge it along the top of our lash line, over the line you made with your liner.
4. Next choose a shade slightly lighter than the darkest to brush over the rest of your lid and into the crease of your eye.
5. Finally, choose the lightest shade to sweep over your brow bone. Using a blending brush, gently blend away any lines that separate the colors from each other.
6. Curl lashes and finish with at least 2 coats of black mascara.
Tip: Remember to keep a nude/sheer lip with a smokey eye. You should only emphasize one feature at a time, to avoid looking overly ‘made up’.
From the runways to the red carpet, celebrities and super models are getting catty! But it’s not what you think. No claws, just curvy, cat-eye inspired makeup that’s making us PURRRRRRR!
We are loving the revival of the retro cat-eye look! This is definitely the season’s new smokey eye. As hot as this look is, you’ll need to stay cool to perfect it. The look is simple to accomplish and only requires a good black liquid eyeliner and a steady hand.
Here are our 4 tips to creating the perfect cat-eye look:
- Start with a black liquid eyeliner.
- Holding your head back so that you are looking down at your mirror, draw a thin line from the inner corner of your all the way to the end of your eyelid. Take a step back and look to make sure that your line is even.
- Then, starting from the center of your eye, go over the existing thin line with a slightly thicker line that goes just from the center to the outer most corner. The firmer you press on the brush the thicker the line will be.
- Now, to finish the effect, bring your eyeliner back to the end of your eye, drag the brush slightly past your lash line and up a little towards your brow. This creates that signature cat-eye wing.
For a more dramatic look, make the ‘wing’ thicker and extend it even further past your lash line.
With dramatic cat-eyes, we recommend a soft, nude lip. Have you perfected this look? We’d love to see! Upload your cat-eye makeup to our Facebook page!
