Now that summer is finally over, it’s time to prep our hair for those upcoming cooler and drier months. And just like how we slowly transition into our fall wardrobe, gradually changing up our haircare routine is essential for proper hair health. Not sure how to go from fun-in-the-sun to autumn-ready locks?

Fall, Winter 2014 Hairstyle Color Trends: Platinum Blonde, Copper Red, Bronzed Brunette

We’ve consulted stylist experts to answer all your burning questions, whether it be about changing up your shampoo or giving your hair that necessary detox it probably deserves.

Add More Moisture

You may have that go-to favorite, but believe it or not, switching up your shampoo and conditioner as the seasons change is highly recommended by expert stylists, as they find that once hair becomes too used to a product, it stops working altogether.

“I find that changing up your shampoo and conditioner is a common habit among our clients, as they feel like it’s actually a good thing to switch it up. There also seems to be a belief that your hair gets used to a particular product, and subsequently does not respond to it in quite the same way,” says Damian Santiago, Co-Owner of Mizu New York Salon.

When shopping for that fall-friendly shampoo, Dop Dop Salon Master Stylist Lori Zabel recommends finding products with more moisture. “Hair usually needs more nourishment after the summer. The sun, sand, salt water and chlorine can definitely take its toll. I recommend a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner like Redken All Soft or Redken Clear Moisture,” Zabel suggests.

Read The Ingredient Label, Carefully

For Keila Rokkan, Expert Stylist at Verb Hair Care, staying away from shampoos with harsh chemicals and additives is also a key tip to remember. “Drugstore brands use harsh chemicals that give the illusion that your hair is healthy, but over time they build up and damage the hair.

To find your best shampoo, pick up the bottle and read the ingredients. Stay away from chemicals like: methylparaben, butylparaben, polyparaben, sodium lauryl sulfate and formaldehyde. Verb Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner are safe and always $14,” Rokkan explains.

Detox!

Now for that necessary detox, honing in on a fixed regimen is always a good way to go. “The way to detox summer hair is with some focused TLC. Cleanse, rehydrate, and rebuild with a mask or deep treatment,” Damian Santiago suggests.

But if you’re looking for a more intense treatment, the salon route is always a smart way to go. “Come in to Dop Dop Salon for a detox clarifying treatment to help remove the summer build-up and balance the hair’s porosity. Don’t forget the weekly treatment and a great leave-in like Redken Blonde Idol BBB Spray,” Lori Zabel adds.

The Best Styles, Cuts, Colors & Accessories For Fall Hair

Want the skinny on what’s hot in hair? Take these expert suggestions for that sexy fall look. “Fall hair is big on simplicity. Think middle parts, sleek[ness], no frizz but lots of natural texture. Keep the hair simple and go wild with accessories. Big clips, braids-in scarves, ribbons and even the scrunchie is making an appearance this fall,” states Rokkan.

Is The Choppy Bob The New “Karlie” Chop? Not Too Short, Long Hair Length With Texture

Want a big change? Don’t be afraid to go bold with color or cuts. “Going into fall is the best time to try new colors! The colors to obsess over this season are ones with flavor like cognac, maple, pumpkin, toasted almond, cherry wood, cinnamon and golden apricot,” Lori Zabel describes.

Juvederm Treatments Are An Amazing Solution For Anyone Seeking Youthful Skin – Sponsored Review

juvederm Juvederm Treatments Are An Amazing Solution For Anyone Seeking Youthful Skin - Sponsored Review
As we get older, our bodies change and mature. You may have noticed as the years go by that
you feel more comfortable or familiar in your own skin. However, you may notice
that certain aspects of your physical appearance are, disappointingly, “not what they used to
be.” That glowing and plump skin of youth can fade away as folds and wrinkles begin to appear. This can be disappointing, especially if you’re someone who wants to age with grace and happiness instead of frustration and resentment. Thankfully, there are procedures out there that can do wonders to bring back healthy-looking, youthful skin.

How To Tell If You Need Botox: Best Treatment For Wrinkles, Underarm Sweating And Migraines

While you may have heard about complicated, dangerous and expensive surgeries, or creams
and potions that claim to change lots but actually do little, the truly best solution when it comes
to anti-aging treatments lies in something called Juvederm.

Hyaluronic Acid

The thing that sets Juvederm apart from every other anti-aging treatment  on the market is the fact that its formula is based around a chemical that naturally occurs in  the human body called hyaluronic acid. This chemical helps to smooth out your skin and give it that youthful “glow” you may find waning as you age — levels of HA and collagen diminish in the body over time, which is one of the reasons why skin loses its supple, elastic qualities.

How Does The Treatment Work?

Juvederm is remarkable in terms of being non-invasive and accessible. All you need
in order to receive a treatment is a clinic you trust, like Toronto’s Skin Vitality, where you can
go and identify the areas of your face that you’d like to see treated. A trusted clinician will mark
off these areas, and discuss with you exactly what you’d like to see from the results of your treatment. Then, you will receive the treatment, which itself is quick and painless. Afterwards, you can go about your day as you normally would.

The injection procedure lasts approximately 15-minutes. There are few reported side effects of Juvederm treatments, and those that do occur most frequently are mild. The most common side effects are slight redness or tenderness at the injection site. Any side effects associated with the procedure will last a week or less.

Can Everyone Receive The Juvederm Treatment?

It’s been shown that the treatment is effective for people with various skintones, and is safe and effective for people of any skin color. The results of the treatment will last for an average of twelve months, before another treatment is necessary; repeat injections will be required to maintain a person’s optimal skin smoothness.

Juvederm treatments offer the best of all possible worlds — little risk and a ton of rewards, all for anyone who wants to make their skin look its best at all times. Accepting the aging process doesn’t mean you have to surrender to dull skin. All you have to do is head over to a clinic like Skin Vitality, the best clinic for facial fillers in Toronto, Canada, and get the treatment you’ve been looking for.

Ribbon Makeup Shot 4 Ways To Join & Support The Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund This September: Best BCA Beauty Products 2014

For ovarian cancer survivors, loved ones and supporters, September is a crucial month to help raise awareness for this deadly disease. While we will continue to fight this disease every day,  help the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund (LMOCF) in our battle against ovarian cancer during these final weeks of National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.

1. KNOW THE SYMPTOMS: Most women don’t know the symptoms (experience persistent bloating, abdominal or pelvic pain, feeling full quickly when eating or changes in urination) or risk factors. If you have symptoms or a family history of the disease, talk to a doctor. Don’t wait; the earlier ovarian cancer is diagnosed, the better the prognosis.

2. SPREAD THE WORD: Talk to your friends and family members about what you’ve learned. You can join the Speak Out for Hope conversation online by following @LauraMercier on Twitter and Instagram and use #LMOCF, #SpeakOutForHope to support this important cause.

3. DONATE: You can help LMOCF continue to raise awareness and fund research and educational efforts by making a donation to lmocf.org. All funds go to programs that help diagnose, treat and support women with ovarian cancer.

4. SHOP FOR THE CAUSE: Laura Mercier cosmetics will donate 100% of the profits from the sale of this year’s 2014 annually-released September items. Check out some of them down below!

Review, Swatches: What Is Fluide Makeup? Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Smooth-Effect Makeup SPF 15, Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Foundation

Chanel Laura mErcier FLuide MAkeup Review, Swatches: What Is Fluide Makeup? Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Smooth-Effect Makeup SPF 15, Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Foundation

Need that perfect transitional foundation? You don’t need a heavy coating as much as you might think, but you could surely use some coverage! What you’re after right now is some fluide makeup! I know. I usually relate the word “fluide” to pens and liner. But, everyone’s doing it! And if you’re ready to give in to some cosmetic peer pressure, we have 2 fluide foundation choices for you to check out.

FLuide Makeup Swatch Review, Swatches: What Is Fluide Makeup? Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Smooth-Effect Makeup SPF 15, Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Foundation

(left) Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide, (right) Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Smooth-Effect Makeup SPF 15

Up first is the Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide, which comes in 24 shades. With all fluide makeup it is imperative to SHAKE! Its bi-phased, watery consistency needs to be properly mixed to ensure the color pigments and reflective waters produce an exact color match. It’s advised to apply a small amount on the back of your hand, as it can easily spill out excess makeup.

What is a bi-phased formula you may ask? It is made of two parts designed to give you a natural-looking color and lightweight coverage. Colour true pigments rest at the bottom of the package while reflective Waters Hydro-Brilliant Technology float at the top once you shake it. This oil-free foundation blurs the line between real skin and makeup. Laura Mercier foundation shades are great, since they truly perform for all skintones, undertones and in-betweeners like myself (both yellow and pink undertones, slightly neutral).

Fluide makeup rubbed in Review, Swatches: What Is Fluide Makeup? Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Smooth-Effect Makeup SPF 15, Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Foundation
Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Smooth-Effect Makeup SPF 15 is also oil-free, providing a long-lasting, matte-velvet finish. Soft-focus pigments smooth and perfect the skin for a flawless look that lasts all day long. It does dry rather matte, which is perfect for someone with that end-of-summer oily yet normal skin combination. Nine shades will guarantee for a perfect match. If you’re sensitive to scent, the Chanel one does have a slight fragrance, which is commonly found in all Chanel foundations, whereas the Laura Mercier one is scentless (to me at least).
