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!

Prince was a pop culture music icon. Tom Cruise dominated the box office. Bell bottom pants were the rage and big hair ruled. Wearing bright colored clothing of yellows, oranges, and greens made you a stand out fashion queen or king. Along with bands such as The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, and Pink Floyd, the 1980s rocked! MTV brought us music videos which were something the world had never seen. Remember Michael Jackson’s Thriller?

The 1980s were a decade of flamboyance and fun, and its fashion trends are making a major comeback this Fall. Great trends stand the test of time and never truly go away.

Popular 80s Trends that are Fashionable for Fall 2018:

Bell Bottom Jeans: Both bell bottom and hip hugger jeans were all the rage in the 80s. Eric Clapton’s hit “Bell Bottom Blues” proves this to be true! Bell bottom and flared pants are back in fashion today, especially in low waisted pants. Let bell bottom jeans ring your bell.

Short Shorts and Hot Pants: In the 80s, gals wore their shorts and their skirts extremely short. Hot pants and miniskirts set the stage for contemporary fashion. Today, think Daisy Dukes for short shorts and the adored miniskirt has never gone away! To really spice the look up and go full retro, wear your short shorts with fishnet or opaque stockings! Priceless!

Big Hair: Big hair and bouffant hairdos ruled in the 80s. Guess what? Long, plush, coveted heads of hair are back in style. While short haircuts are cool and sassy, long, teased, big hair looks bold and brassy! This fall, large curled hair rules them all.

Platform High Heeled Shoes: In the 80s, if you were decked out in bell bottom jeans, the only fitting shoe that would do your look true justice was the platform shoe. Whether the heel was thin and spiked or large and chunky, platform shoes were the bomb. Even Mick Jagger, Elton John, and Freddie Mercury performed live on stage in platform shoes. Step into Fall 2018 where once again the gorgeous platform high heeled shoe takes center stage.

Bright Colored Clothing: Before the earth colors of blues, browns, and mauves took over in the 90s and early 2000s, bright colors of yellows, oranges, and greens defined the 80s color schemes. From clothing to furniture to houses, bright bold colors were in. Even yellow cars dominated the road. Welcome Fall 2018, where the fun colors of yellow, orange, and green are coming back in a big way. Top your bright colored clothing off with a straw or felt hat and turn heads from every which way.

Patent Leather Boots: These beautiful patent leather boots were all the rage in the 1960s and 1970s, spilling over into the 1980s. Whether your choice is thigh high patent leather boots, knee high boots or ankle boots, it’s true that all boots are made for fashionable walking. Walk yourself into Fall 2018 with these fabulous, bold boots!

No matter what your favorite fashion decade might be, clothing and beauty trends may come and go, but what works best for you should always be your main choice.

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.

Gorgeous and glad to be wearing plaid!

Even though the plaid pattern never goes out of style, plaid is making a huge fashion statement for Fall/Winter 2018! Go out and buy the perfect plaid clothing for your closet…it shows great taste! You’ll enjoy wearing plaid and receive so many compliments that your money certainly won’t go to waste! Whether you wear plaid shirts, pants, dresses, shorts or skirts, plaid is a cute, fun, recognizable pattern adored by everyone.

Get your positive fashion spin on when wearing plaid…the criss-cross pattern is cool, chic and rad.

“Bell bottom blues, you made me cry. I don’t want to lose this feeling. And if I could choose a place to die it would be in your arms!” Bell Bottom Blues – Eric Clapton

Okay, Eric Clapton may be singing to a woman, but this is the same way denim lovers feel toward their cherished blue jeans.  Yes, to many people their denim duds are that desirable!

Denim is a sturdy cotton warp faced textile in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving produces a diagonal ribbing that distinguishes it from cotton duck. The most common denim is indigo denim, in which the warp thread is dyed, while the weft thread is left white. As a result of the warp-faced twill weaving, one side of the textile is dominated by blue warp threads and the other side is dominated by the white weft threads. This is what causes blue jeans to be white on the inside!

No matter the decade and no matter the style, denim bell bottoms are fun, beautiful and fashionable. Bell bottoms are a style of pants that become wider from the knees downward, forming a bell-like shape of the pant leg. Did you know that in the 1970s Sonny and Cher helped popularize bell bottoms in the United States by wearing them on their variety television show?

Bell Bottoms Fun Fact: In 1989 bell bottoms rose in popularity after bands such as The Rolling Stones, Happy Mondays and the Charlatans wore them while performing on stage.

Create a bell bottom blues revival by parading around in denim bell bottoms on your own stage! Set a glorious fashion rage!

Dazzling denim duds welcomes bell bottom blues!

How Denim is Made:

  1. Cotton is harvested by hand or machine.
  2. A cotton gin separates the cotton fiber from the seeds.
  3. The fiber is put into bales. A bale weighs around 550 pounds and can make around 400 pairs of jeans.
  4. The cotton fiber is spun into yarn.
  5. The yarn is dyed, giving it color such as the classic denim blue.
  6. The yarn is then woven in a shuttle loom or projectile loom into denim.
  7. The denim is then sent to the manufacturer for use.

Dry or raw denim, contrasted with washed denim, is denim that hasn’t been washed after having been dyed during production.

Some people prefer their denim dark blue while others prefer the washed, faded look. Patterns of fading jeans caused by prolonged periods of wearing them are a way of personalizing the garment.

Popular Patterns of Faded Jeans:

  1. Combs or Honeycombs – Meshes of faded line-segments that form behind the knees.
  2. Whiskers – Faded streaks that form rapidly from the crotch area.
  3. Stacks – Irregular bands of fading above the ankle caused by according of the fabric due to contact with the foot or shoe.
  4. Train Tracks- Fading along the out-seams due to abrasion.

One of my most favorite clothing ensembles that always looks classy, stylish and trendy are flared bell bottom blue jeans worn with black patent leather high heels, a white or black blouse and a black velvet blazer. Striking! Add accessories and a great handbag for a look that works in the office, at parties or out at your favorite restaurant enjoying brunch or dinner!

Bell bottom blues are a true garment winner!

Denim fabric dyeing is divided into two categories: indigo dyeing and sulfur dyeing. Indigo dyeing produces the traditional blue color while sulfur dyeing produces specialty black colors and other colors, such as red, pink, purple, gray, rust, mustard and green.

More comfortable in stretch denim? Stretch denim incorporates an elastic component, such as spandex. This creates a certain amount of “give” when putting on, wearing and removing your delicious denim duds!

Whether skinny jeans, daisy duke shorts, miniskirts, dresses or bells bottom jeans, let’s toast the beloved material worn worldwide known simply as denim! Hats off to the denim king and queens!

The Fourth of July is celebrated with many events such as fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, picnics, concerts, baseball games and other ceremonies. These events celebrate the history, government and traditions of the United States, and are depicted with the colors red, white and blue to honor the American Flag.

Independence Day is the only holiday that celebrates the United States of America and is a national holiday marked by patriotic displays. Many celebrations take place outdoors and the Fourth of July is a national and federal holiday. Some politicians appear at public events to praise the nation’s heritage, laws, history, society and people.

The Fourth of July signifies the day in 1776 that the Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Continental Congress. Many people take fun advantage of the holiday by making long weekends to gather with family and friends. How about enjoying some exciting Fourth of July hobbies such as swimming, fishing, boating, sunbathing, playing sports or just kicking back and relaxing?

In many ways, the Fourth of July celebrations are all about the night with elaborate firework shows, music, food and fun. Fireworks are set off in neighborhoods, parks, fairgrounds and stadiums.

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!
