If you’re familiar with the shampoo and conditioner aisles in stores and salons, you’ve probably seen certain hair products that contain argan oil. You may have even wondered what exactly is argan oil and what does the oil do? Argan oi is a plant oil product produced from the kernels of the argan tree that originated in Morocco. In addition to cosmetic purposes, argan oil is used as a dip for bread or to drizzle on pasta and other noodles.

For centuries, dating back at least as far as 600 BC, the Phoenicians relied upon argan oil for healing and enhancing beauty. Argan oil definitely nourishes the skin and hair.

Argan oil works wonders on hair and skin because the oil is rich in Vitamin A, C and E, as well as being loaded with antioxidants, linoleic acid and Omega-6 fatty acids. When applied topically, the oil helps boost cell production which results in healthier skin and hair.

Ways Argan Oil Benefits Hair:

  1. Eliminates dandruff and dry scalp.
  2. Makes hair flow sleek and sexy by taming frizz and flyaways.
  3. Nourishes dry, flaky, brittle hair for a smooth appearance.
  4. Provides your hair with a shiny, glistening look.
  5. Help you manage and style your hair.

Argan Oil: the optimum oil for smooth, silky hair!

Argan Oil Fun Fact: The fruit of the argan tree is small, round, oval or conical. The nut contains one to three oil rich argan kernels. To extract the kernels, workers dry argan fruit in the open air and then remove a fleshy pulp. Extraction yields from 30% to 50% of the oil from the kernels, depending on the extraction method.

How to Determine Pure Argan Oil:

  1. The ingredients list should say 100% argan oil.
  2. Pure argan oil has a mild, nut type aroma.
  3. The texture of the oil should be thick and not watery.
  4. Make sure the oil is cosmetic grade oil and not roasted.

Truth be told, use argan oil shampoo and condition for sleek, sexy hair that is pure gold!

For incredibly sexy, shiny, exquisite hair use argan oil products as the great moisturizer. In addition to wash and rinse argan oil hair products, argan oil can be used as a leave in conditioner, taming frizz and working to repair and eliminate split ends.

Argan oil for hot, happening hair, because in the end, you and your hair are worth it!

Any hair or skin product containing argan oil is a definite health and beauty bargain!

It’s easy to see why colorful, popping, exciting neon lips are all the rage this summer. Neon lips are in! Bright lips not only cause your entire face to stand out, but are fun and fashionable too. Sexy, sensual, neon colored lips are the way to go and I would never lie to you!

Colors make the world go round, and this is true in cosmetics. From basic shades to pastels to neon, experimenting with various colors of makeup allows you to highlight your facial features and to bring out your own unique natural beauty. Neon lipsticks and lip glosses are adored by all glamour girl cuties!

Lipstick is a cosmetic product containing pigments, oils, waxes and emollients that apply color, texture and protection to the lips. Many colors and types of lipstick exist. In addition to lipsticks, lip balms can be worn to add color and hydration. If you’re one who prefers lips that give off a dry look, go with matte lipsticks. If you relish sensual wetness and shine, use a lip gloss.

Neon Fun Fact: We all know that neon colors are brighter version of colors, but what makes neon? Neon is actually a chemical element with the symbol Ne and atomic number 10. Neon is a noble gas that is colorless and odorless with about two-thirds the density of air. Neon gas was discovered in 1898 as one of the three residual rare inert elements remaining in dry air, after nitrogen, oxygen, argon and carbon dioxide were removed. Neon gas produces a bright red emission spectrum and gives a distinct reddish-orange glow when used in low voltage neon glow lamps, high voltage discharge tubes and neon advertising signs.

Coat your lips in sexy neon colored lipsticks and you’ll be a walking advertisement for true, luscious glamour!

Lipstick Fun Fact: Ancient Sumerian men and women were the first to invent and wear lipstick, around 5,000 years ago. They crushed gemstones and used them to decorate their faces, mainly on the lips and around the eyes. Around 3000 BC to 1500 BC, women in the ancient Indus Valley Civilization applied red tinted lipstick to their lips for face adornment. Ancient Egyptians wore lipstick to show social status.

Lip coloring started to gain popularity in 16th century England. During the time of Queen Elizabeth I, bright red lips and a stark white face became fashionable.

Glam through the summer season in sultry lips of neon!

Lipstick Colors That Look Outstanding in Neon:

  1. Pink
  2. Purple
  3. Orange
  4. Green
  5. Yellow
  6. Red
  7. Blue
  8. Coral

Lipstick comes in many variations including lip balms, glosses, crayons, pencils, liners and stains. Balms and glosses tend to be more translucent and not as dark or vibrant.

Neon colored lipsticks are always stunning and vibrant for any va va voom fashion vixen!

Look sexy, youthful, darling and hip when you go through your day in bright neon lips!

“I noticed you clear at the other end of the aisle from your popping pink lips.”

“If a gal is going to decorate her face with gorgeous makeup, neon colors is my tip.”

“I do say your pretty pink lips make your entire face and your blue eyes stand out.”

“I would guess you are complimenting me, or flirting with me no doubt.”

“If you aren’t busy this afternoon perhaps we could share a bite to eat.”

“There’s an outside café right down the street. A tasty lunch would be sweet.”

Neon Lipsticks: Dazzle with your lips and stay quick on your feet because you never know who you are going to meet!

Perhaps there is no hairstyle that is cuter, cooler and more perfect for summer than the trending bob! No matter the shape of your face, be it round, oval, square or heart shaped, the short, sassy hairstyle that is the bob works as the elegant, sultry frame for your face.

A bob cut is a shorter haircut in which the hair is typically cut straight around the head at about jaw level, often with bangs (fringe) at the front. The bob is generally cut at the level of the ears or above the shoulders.

Great Ways to Wear the Bob:

  1. Parted down the middle.
  2. Parted down the side.
  3. The ends level with your chin.
  4. The ends just above the shoulders.
  5. Straight
  6. Curled
  7. With Bangs
  8. Without Bangs

Whichever way you prefer to style your bob, the final look is summery, youthful and fun. The bob is a trending hairstyle that does work well on everyone!

Ana Wintour of Vogue magazine is known for her bob haircut parted down the middle, with bangs. As early as the 1920s The Times was suggesting that the bob hairstyle was passé. By the end of the 1920s, the dominant female hairstyle in the Western world was the bob. The chic hairstyle then spread beyond the West, as women in other countries began to adopt the bob haircut as a sign of modern times. Close fitting hats also became popular, and worked perfect with short hair.

One great way to recognize a true bob haircut is by the sharp lines of the cut. The bob often turns in at the ends, resting under the chin.

Types of Bobs:

  1. A-line Bob: A typical bob cut, with slightly longer hair that frames the face, curling under the chin.
  2. Buzz-Cut Bob: The bob is shoulder length in the front and close cropped at the back.
  3. Chin Length Bob: Cut straight to the chin, with or without bangs.
  4. Inverted Bob: Similar to the A-line bob, but with stacked layers in back. The perimeter of the cut is curved rather than being a straight line.
  5. Shaggy Bob: A messy bob layered with a razor.
  6. Shingle Bob: A cut that is tapered very short in the back, exposing the hairline at the neck. The hair on the sides is formed into a single curl or point on each cheek.
  7. Shoulder Length Bob: A blunt bob that reaches the shoulders and has very few layers.

Whatever type of bob you choose, when you wear this gorgeous, short, fun hairstyle you will never lose!

Win the hair fashion game in a bob hairstyle! The fun cut will match your pleasing smile!

Bob hairstyles look exceptionally sexy and sultry when you wear long, dangling earrings. The bob haircut is short enough to show off the earrings and bring out the sexy siren vixen that resides inside every glamour girl! Give the bob haircut a whirl!

Hobnob in this summer’s trending hairstyle: the bob!

If you’re someone who normally wears your hair long and you want to try something new, I suggest the short, sassy, classy, sexy bob in the summertime or the entire year through!

“I didn’t recognize you with your shorter hair. You look fiery and fierce.”

“I wanted a shorter cut to show off my earrings. I just got my ears pierced.”

“I love the way the cut is layered in back and the front ends curl under your chin.”

“This cooler hairdo feels so freeing and liberating. I love the new look I’m in.”

“The bangs and the middle part are a switch from your long hair parted on the side.”

“It didn’t take me long to select this blunt cut for summer. I know I’ll love the ride!”

The Bob: A haircut that works for all face shapes and hair colors. A splendid cool, chic new hairdo for summer!

The pretty and pleasing fabric known as plaid never goes out of style. As early as the 1830s, plaid was a popular fabric pattern in the world of fashion. Plaid is a recognizable pattern consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands of multiple colors. Plaid originated in woven wool, but today plaid fabrics are available in many other materials.

Plaid is made with alternating bands of colored threads woven as both warp and weft at right angles to each other. The weft is woven in a simple twill, two over – two under the warp, advancing one thread at each pass. This forms visible diagonal lines where different colors cross, which gives the appearance of new colors blended from the original ones. The resulting blocks of color repeat vertically and horizontally in a distinct pattern of squares and lines known as a ‘sett’.

Ready, set, go…look fabulous from head to toe when you are dressed in the cool, chic, rad fabric that is plaid!

Plaid Color Shades and Meanings:

  1. Modern: A plaid that is colored using chemical dyes as opposed to natural dyes.
  2. Ancient: A lighter shade of plaid that represent the colors that would result from the fabric aging over time.
  3. Muted: Plaid which is shade between modern and ancient. This type of plaid is very modern, dating only from the 1970s. This shade is said to be the closest match to the shades attained by natural dyes used before the mid-19th century.

For those of you that prefer a splash of plaid as opposed to being wrapped in plaid, why not carry a plaid handbag or doll yourself up in plaid accessories? A touch of plaid looks exceptionally graceful and elegant on anyone, yes, even men!

Plaid Fun Fact: Plaid is recorded by counting the threads of each color that appear in the sett. The thread count not only describes the width of the stripes on a sett, but also the colors used. For example, the thread count “K4 R24 K24 Y4” breaks down as 4 black threads, 24 red threads, 24 black threads and 4 yellow threads. The first and last thread of the thread count are the pivot points.

The word ‘plaid’, derived from the Scottish Gaelic ‘plaide’, meaning blanket, was first used to describe any rectangular garment. Over time, the term ‘plaid’ was used to describe blankets themselves.

Today plaid is a pretty, pleasing pattern that looks both elegant and fun and is adored and recognized by everyone!

The fashion pandemonium plaid is never a fad!

Although plaid prints can be found in all colors, plaid fabrics consisting of black, red and yellow are the most popular. For a striking, stunning sight, dress in plaid garments of black and white.

“I feel that I can play checkers on your checkered dress.”

“This pattern is plaid. Checkered is cute but plaid is the best.”

“Can you explain the difference between checkered and plaid to me?”

“Checkered patterns make only squares; plaid is squares and lines that are easy to see.”

“The different blocks of color in the material seem to run up and down.”

“Horizontal and vertical. Plaid is one of the most beautiful patterns around.”

Plaid: A fashionable and stylish pattern that looks fantastic on skirts, dresses, jackets and shoes, or any other garments you choose!

When it comes to fashion garments, necklines have a large impact on the look and style of the clothing. The neckline is the top edge of a garment that surrounds the neck, especially from the front view.  For each garment worn above the waist, the neckline is primarily a style line and may be a boundary for further shaping of the upper edge of the clothing with a collar, cowl, darts or pleats.

One type of neckline that is sexy, sensual and perfect for summer is the halterneck. Halterneck is a style of women’s clothing straps that runs from the front of the garment around the back of the neck, leaving the impression from behind that nothing is holding up the dress or the top.

In addition to tops, blouses and dresses, the halterneck style is used in bathing suits to maximize sun tan exposure on the back, and minimize tan lines. The halterneck style creates the look of a backless dress or top. The neck strap itself can be covered by your hair, leaving the impression from behind that nothing is holding up the garment.

Halterneck Fashion Tip: If a bra is worn with a halterneck, the bra is generally strapless or of halterneck construction itself, to avoid exposing the back straps of a typical bra. For those of you who are fashion fearless, exposing bra straps is a popular trend.

Other Popular Types of Necklines:

  1. Boat Neck – A high, wide, slightly curved neckline.
  2. Deep Necklines – Low necklines in either V, U or square shapes, revealing various amounts of cleavage.
  3. Jewel Neckline – Round and sits at the base of the throat.
  4. Off the Shoulder – The neckline rests low and below the shoulders and collar bone.
  5. One Shoulder Necklines – Asymmetrical necklines that cut across the torso diagonally, exposing one shoulder.
  6. Polo Neck – High, close fitting collars that wrap around the neck (turtlenecks).
  7. Scoop Neck – Curved shaped Us, with the arms of the U hanging on the shoulders.
  8. Square Neck – Three linear edges, with the bottom edge meeting the side edges at a right angle.
  9. V-Neck – Two diagonal lines from the shoulders meet on the chest, creating a V shape.

For a cool, chic neckline that passes the hot summer weather test, the halterneck is truly  the best!

Neckline Fun Fact: The shape of your necklines can be modified in many ways, by adding a collar, scarf, overlaying the neckline with another fabric or decorating the edges with picots, ruffles or fringe. The neckline can be a sharp edge of fabric or a more gentle cowl, and can be accentuated by patterns in the material itself.

For summer and beach wear, a halter top is incredibly popular. A halter top is a sleeveless shirt similar to a tank top, but with the straps being tied behind the neck as opposed to the straps going over the shoulders, like spaghetti straps. In another style of the halter top, there is only a narrow strap behind the neck and a narrow strap behind the middle of the back, so that the top is predominantly backless. This design resembles many bikini tops, although the halter top covers the chest more and may cover all of the abdomen.

High end glamour in a halterneck!

“Your evening gown is simply divine. You’re ready to hit the town.”

“I love the halter neckline and tight fit. The best fashion style around.”

“The halterneck works on garments that are casual or extremely elegant.”

“Yes. A true glamour girl can never go wrong in a gorgeous halterneck outfit.”

“The backless look and bare shoulders are a true fashion win.”

“Halternecks provide high end glamour no matter what garment you’re in.”

Halterneck: Always cool, always chic, always an eye candy fashion treat!

Faux animal prints in clothing and fashion is making a roaring comeback in the 2018 summer/fall collections. Animal print clothing is made to resemble the pattern of the skin and fur of an animal such as a leopard, cheetah, zebra, tiger, spotted hyena, striped hyena, giraffe and monkey. The three most popular animal prints in fashion are the zebra, tiger and leopard.

In addition to clothing, trendy, fierce, feisty animal prints look fantastic on handbags, footwear and accessories.

 

A major difference between animal prints and fur clothing is that animal prints generally use fake fur instead of actual animal coat.

Animal prints have long been a popular garment in the fashion world. Animal prints generally exude a certain style, appearing expensive and exotic looking, hence they are a symbol of wealth and status. Throughout history, kings and other high people have used animal print rugs and such as a sign of status.

Animal prints became extremely popular for women in the United States in the 1960s during the Bohemian movement.

Grrr…unleash your inner animal!

Release your inner roar in animal prints!

Animal print clothing is sexy, fierce and fun. Much like animals, the print even looks sleek and fast. If you want to be noticed in a crowd, dress in animal prints and your inner roar will be heard out loud!

 

Animal Print Fun Fact: In addition to clothing, animal prints may also refer to artwork of animals printed on canvas or paper. The art prints may replicate the same skin or fur pattern found on the animal, but a flat photographic representation printed on artistic media, such as wall decorations. Art prints are commonly used for other decorations, including rugs, wallpaper and painted surfaces.

So many animals, so many animal prints. Wrap yourself in the attractive appeal of animal fashion and step out in animal fashion passion!

Slink down the runway or slink down the street with animal print clothing on your body and your feet!

“That leopard jacket you are wearing is striking to my eyes.”

“Perhaps you can wear it sometime. You look about my size.”

“I’d truly like to have one of my own. I’ll wear it with my leopard dress.”

“You have a leopard dress? With your fashion taste I’m truly impressed.”

“I adore animal prints of all kinds on all types of clothes.”

“I’ll get me a tiger striped skirt with matching tiger striped hose.”

Animal Prints: Unleash your inner animal in animal prints galore. You’ll be roaring for more!

However you personally define glamour, most people think of glamour as an appearance of enhanced attractiveness, most notably relating to fashion and style. Glamour is revered worldwide, as is evidenced by red carpet events, celebrity followings, fashion shows, beauty pageants and the media.

Feeling and looking great can help you deal with the stress and busyness of everyday life while keeping a smile on your face.

The best way to pull off your ultimate glamour goals is by making a list of the daily efforts it will take to maintain your personal style of glamour.

• Nail Care: You’ll definitely want to take daily care of your hands and feet. A good way to ensure you keep your hands and feet soft is by applying lotion or petroleum jelly after showering. Also, pamper yourself with occasional manicures and pedicures, or do them yourself at home. Paint your fingernails and toenails to highlight your gorgeous hands and feet.

• Maintain a Healthy Diet and Get Good Sleep: Everyone has days where they need fast food or a piece of chocolate cake. Sleep? It’s not always easy to get your 7 or 8 hours a night as recommended.

Long, beautiful eyelashes can definitely make you stand out in a crowd. When your lustrous lashes are real, as opposed to fake eyelashes or eyelash extensions, your eyes will be noticed with or without eye makeup. There is something about long eyelashes that looks absolutely lovely. Dark, full eyebrows and long, thick eyelashes bring out the true allure of your face.

Long, voluptuous eyelashes are a symbol of natural beauty and are an asset to any face. If you prefer extended, natural eyelashes there are easy, inexpensive ways to grow out your own enchanting lashes. Just like the hair on your head, your eyelashes and eyebrows need nourishment to grow and ensure that your vixen lashes remain extended and eye catching.

Bat your eyes for the good news! There are ways to grow thicker, longer, stronger and healthier natural eyelashes!

Natural Ways to Grow Long Eyelashes:

1. Use a lash lengthening gel underneath your mascara. Some lengthening gels not only grow and lengthen your own lashes, but the gel also conditions and protects your eyelashes, making your lashes stronger.
2. Apply olive oil or castor oil to your eyelashes before you go to bed. Rub the oil between your thumb and finger, then pat the oil onto your eyelashes, or use a clean mascara brush to apply.
3. Apply petroleum jelly to your eyelashes. Let the petroleum jelly sink into your lashes overnight, then wash the jelly off in the morning.
4. Avoid eyelash curlers! Eyelash curlers have a tendency to pull out and/or break your eyelashes, especially if you use the curler on lashes coated with mascara.
5. Eat a nutritious, well balanced diet high in B vitamins and protein. Your eyelashes need to be fed a healthy diet to grow thick and full, just like the hair on your head.
6. Glycerin and egg whites mixed with castor oil, applied to your eyelashes, feeds and strengthens your lashes.
7. Invest in a good eye makeup remover that allows for your mascara to come off easily, where you don’t have to scrub or tug at your lashes.

Once you’ve grown your eyelashes to a lovely length, why not book a pamper session with a Mobile Styles health and beauty expert? Treat yourself to a complete makeover that will make your entire face shine and glow as you go through your busy day.

In order to ensure that your natural, long eyelashes stand out even more, apply two coats of black mascara and watch your pretty peepers come to life. Long, dark, thick eyelashes do wonders for highlighting your face. I say that if I could only wear one cosmetic my choice would be mascara (with lipstick a close second)! The first thing people notice when they look at your face is your eyes. Long, mascara coated eyelashes help beautify and enlarge the size of your eyes. Sheer glamour!

Lovely, long eyelashes are the bomb! Natural ways to grow eyelashes that are lengthy, lustrous and strong.

Oh how we all wish we could adore the skin that we’re in: blemish free, soft and smooth with a healthy, happy glow. I’m thrilled to say it can be so. By eating a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water and protecting and nurturing your skin with the right products and daily skin care routine, you truly can love the skin that you’re in.

Skin care can seem overwhelming with so many serums, products and brands on the market that promise radiant, wrinkle free, younger and blemish free skin. What’s a glamour girl or guy to do when you walk down the store aisles and you see so many lotions, moisturizers and soaps standing out at you?

Your basic skin care can be simple with great results by using 5 essential products to help you relish the skin that you’re in!

The 5 Most Important Steps of Your Skin Care Routine:

• Facial Cleanser: Facial cleansers will clean your skin, and are easier and more gentle on your skin than soap. When cleansing, start at the bottom of your face and work your way up to stimulate the skin and open the pores. Rinse with warm water and pat dry with a towel.

• Skin Toner: A strong skin toner works wonders for a healthy skin care routine. Toners close pores, remove traces of built up oils and help seal in moisture.

• Moisturizers/Oils: Once your face is fresh and clean, you’ll want to prevent dryness by applying a moisturizer or facial oil. Dry skin leads to premature aging, clogged pores and dull looking skin. Oils help to moderate your skin’s oil production as opposed to making oily skin oilier.

• Facial Masks: Although you don’t need to use a facial mask everyday, once a week is a grand idea to help firm and cleanse your skin. All beauty supply stores carry face masks geared for different skin types (dry, normal, oily, combination) and skin conditions (deep-pore, mid-pore and topical). Cream, clay and mud masks are very popular and can either be wiped off or peeled off when your mask treatment is complete.

• Clean, Soft Makeup Brushes: Once your skin care routine is finished for the evening or morning and it’s makeup time, you’ll likely want to brush a light dose of translucent powder over your face to give you a healthy, radiant, lasting glow. Always use soft, clean brushes to keep your pristine skin care routine at its best.
