What Can I say, Pink Is My Color

So recently purchased a few pieces from the new ColourPop Sailor Moon Collection when it restocked at Ulta last week and I love it! The collection is currently sold out, but it could potentially pop back up in stores or online after a later date. Or, at least I hope so I can pick up a few more products!

For this look, I used the shades “Miracle Romance” and “Luna” across my eyelids from the Pretty Guardian Pressed Powder Palette and dusted From The Moon Pressed Powder Blush across my cheeks.

What do you think? Should I break down my makeup application process in a future post? Let a girl know!

I’m really not sure what to call this new hair style I just got. The first person I saw with the look was “Next In Fashion’s” Claire Davis (@nothanksm8) with her natural hair in thin twists and I knew I had to do the same. One popular model and influencer Hannah Mussette (@mussette) called them lion tail braids on Instagram, but they’re simply jumbo box braids or twists with leave out.

Got bored and decided to do lion tails

Though my version ended up more like Hannahs, ditching the marley hair and opting instead for sleek kanekalon braiding hair to get the vibrant highlighter pink I wanted. I’ve been seeing versions of this trend with celebs like Amandla Steinberg (@amandlasponsored) since at least 2018. I wonder what other forms this look will take and if it’ll eventually get an official name. Only time will tell, but I can say for sure that it’s a vibe!

3 Easy Tips For Faster Hair Growth

Getting your hair to grow can be a frustrating process, but it doesn’t have to be. One of my old coworkers commented on how long my hair had gotten on Instagram and asked about my hair regiment. I replied that I really don’t do much and that’s true. I firmly believe that the less you’re in your hair the better. But to get more specific and to create a writing sample for this hair magazine I’m interviewing with, here are three simple tips to help you reach your ideal length.

Tip 1: Use little to no heat.
It doesn’t take much for hair to get heat damaged if you’re using too high of a heat setting or not using a heat protectant when styling. Put the flat iron and curlers down and try to use heat as little as possible.

Tip 2: Trim your ends monthly.
Your ends are the oldest part of your hair and when not taken care of they tend to split. Getting monthly trims will help get rid of dead and damaged hair, which will lead to healthy hair growth.

Tip 3: Don’t over manipulate your hair.
Putting a lot of stress on your hair from over styling will cause your hair breakage over time. Work low maintenance hair styles into your daily routine to put less stress on your hair.

Hope this helps! What do you do to maintain length? Let me know in the comments.
