ALL ABOUT BEAUTY: Triple Entendre

All About Beauty

If fortune favors the brave then certainly genius befriends the subtle, and no one better to showcase the virtues of the under-the-radar glam than this week’s Fashionista and her triple piercings.

One can almost miss the sparkling trifecta of studs if you don’t know they’re there, but all it takes is an afternoon sun and the tucking of her dip-dyed strands to catch even the most unobservant eye. In the way of Lagerfeld’s newest muse Alice Dellal and the Hollywood styling of Rooney Mara in Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, this Fashionista finds a way to channel the tough without going full-fledged Goth on an everyday basis.

Especially with her laid-back tribal top and unassuming ombre waves, this Fashionista isn’t giving off any rocker chic vibes unless you’re really looking for the delicate details—only making her look all the more steal-worthy.

Getting matching earrings is as easy as taking a trip to the accessories section of your local H&M, but only if you’ve already got the holes. For those of you less daring to sit for four more needles, the cuff dangle earrings of Hot Topic have the same allure with infinitely less pain. And if this week’s Fashionista has taught me anything about beauty, it’s that the less-is-more angle is a match made in sartorial heaven, so there’s no shame in playing chicken this time around.

I just dare you to try.

ALL ABOUT BEAUTY: Dip Dye

Uncategorized

Dip-dyeing hair is a game where anything goes. Visualise the radical locks of Abby Lee, Tallulah Morton and Peaches Geldof for instantly chic inspirations for tie dyed strands. For adventurous others, and those feeling a little risqué, a Fashionista can even experiment multi-coloured marble swirl type rainbow hair similar to the locks of Lauren Conrad. The revival of the nineties-inspired dip dye began with the unconventional and modern styles of the current trending It girls; Charlotte free with her fairyfloss pink hair, and Kate Bosworth sporting pastel aqua tips. From here the dip dye literally took on a life of it’s own spreading a kaleidoscopic array of colour throughout the world and our salons.

This daring Fashionista colour coordinates her outfit to her vivid dip dye matching block red combinations with a favourite of the past few seasons; stripes! More importantly however, she stylishly exhibits the way a dip dye can be worn in an up do, exhibiting the variety of ways that a dip dye may be effortlessly styled and maintains an understated edginess.

Dip dying is a fantastic hair technique that doesn’t require an excess amount of colouring products and is quickly and easily achievable. It’s great for helping an unsure Fashionista about what colour to dye her hair exactly as it allows a girl to experiment with as many funky colours as she want without dying her whole hair! To create a successful dip dye, professionals strongly suggest initially using highlighting or bleach kits to lighten the hair then proceeding to paint the tips of the strands with the desired colour, ensuring to blend the colour thoroughly to avoid a harsh colour contrast, that is unless this is the intended effect!

Just remember that when bleaching, unavoidably, hair will be damaged; it’s the effect of using bleach. To remedy this, opt for a specially designed shampoo and conditioner combo formulated to give life back to dyed, treated or damaged hair. Using weekly deep conditioning treatments will aid in renewal by helping to prevent and treat damaged, dry lengths.
Fashionista’s, don’t be afraid to get your colour on.This hair trend is about being brave and pushing forward the boundaries in contemporary colour. Remember, It was Charlotte Free’s hot pink hair that sent her straight to the top, so let your hair speak for you!
