Going from long to short hair isn’t as easy as it might seem. Doing some mental prep and styling research before the big day will help you happily face the mirror. Also not having to worry about having to prep and mail it off. Here at The Day Spa @ Folawns, we’ve got you covered! We not only will give you a beautiful new hair style & photograph of the special moment but we will also prepare it and mail it off to your charity of choice.

Let’s not forget “Why”Donate Your Hair

Men,Women and children with medical conditions that prevent them from having their own head of hair will receive your hair donation.However It is not just people who have endured cancer that need your long locks. There are also people with alopecia areata, those that have undergone radiation/chemotherapy, trauma,burns and other many other genetic/dermatological conditions need hair donations.

However, hair donations aren’t for everyone either

For those who are inspired to snip off your locks, here’s a huge high five. But hair donations aren’t for everyone. It’s a big commitment and can be a little daunting. There are other ways to pay it forward…you can send in financial donations. You also can arrange an event during which a group of people do hair donations at the same time. It’s said that our hair is our crown and glory. I believe that to be true. I also believe that God has given us the ability to grow more so we can share our Glory!

Double Cleansing

 

Double Cleansing: You need to do this, twice!

Every relationship goes through it’s chapters and reaches it’s most meaningful milestones. First dates, first kiss, meeting the parents, first true argument about how, “Oh I don’t care,” is actually not a restaurant. But to this day, I remember the first time my beau ventured into the bathroom of my apartment searching for q-tips. {It might have also been dental floss or tissues. I might not remember this as clearly as I thought. But the humor is still here I promise.} I knew the moment he opened up those upper cabinet doors, searching earnestly for his needs and seeing for the first time my arsenal of beauty products and tools I utilize in my efforts to age gracefully. Now for me, I can practically hear a choir of angels sing every time I open those doors. Glycolic Cleansers, Retinol Crèmes, and oh the lipid soluble vitamin C serums. It’s beautiful. For him, bewildered, confusion, questioning life decisions he made in the third grade. In this moment, he let out the most innocent of, “Whoa,” that would have made a circa 1989 Keanu Reaves very proud. And with a giggle he said that he thought washing his face was just soap and water. Oh he was so mistaken, but he was also so very correct in the simplicity of our skins needs.

As a whole, the beauty industry today is in this amazing era where the education about the importance of a good skin care routine is pivotal. We know that our skin is the largest organ our body has, and it works very hard every day to protect us from harmful environmental factors. The better we take care of our skin, this beautiful organ can do its job longer and more efficiently. With this knowledge, our industry has blossomed with an array of products and tools that aide in our skin care routines. Clarisonic brushes, charcoal masks and jade rollers are everyday tools, while our cabinets are lined with toners and serums for every need. But in reality, we often overlook the fact that a good face cleanse, specifically a double cleanse, is the most important step we can take. Double cleansing is a method of washing your face twice. Yep, that simple. But without proper cleansing, every other step in your skin care routine is absolutely pointless.

Double cleansing really started to receive attention when the layered steps of the Korean skincare routines gained popularity. The art of double cleansing is that you first wash your face with an oil based cleanser. For most of us the mental alarms are already going off at the idea of washing our face with an oil, surely this will make me more oily and further my breakouts? But oil attracts oil, and in this case it’s really attracted to the fat deep in your subcutaneous tissue. The oil cleanse will get down deep in those pores to melt sebum and break down makeup, dirt and pollutants that have accumulated. Often times a deep cleansing will leave the skin dry and raw, but because the oil based cleanser doesn’t mess with the lipids and ceramides between the skin cells, your skin will be balanced, clean and hydrated. The second phase of the double cleanse is the use of a water based foaming cleanser. While the oil based products worked to break down all the crud in our skin, one to two pumps out of this foaming bottle of wonderful is going to swoop in to wash away all of that surface residue. You will be clean. You will be purified. And you will be ready for serums.

Now if you know me at all, you know I am a lazy girl at heart. I often joke that if I can’t put on my makeup at two red lights, well then I just don’t need that kind of pressure in my life. I promise you my skin care routine is not anymore taxing. Following the double cleansing method should -maybe- add one to two more minutes in front of your bathroom mirror at night. That’s it. But from acne to ageing, this two step routine may be your skin’s saving grace.

Just Remember:

Step One: Apply an oil based cleanser to neck and face. Moving in upward and outward circles to massage the cleanser in. You’ll look like a raccoon who forgot their umbrella. This is good, this means the oil is melting everything down. Remove with warm water and cloths.

Step Two: One to Two pumps of your water based foaming cleanser. Work into neck, jaw and entire face with your finger tips for about one minute. Rinse thoroughly.

Your skin will be completely ready now for any toners, serums and bottled glow your favorite Esthetician has recommended for you. Try to do this every night, or most nights if were being honest gals. Until next time readers.

The Big Bang Theory

file

I hear it all the time these days especially with all the celebs taking the plunge and getting bangs. “Do you think I could rock Bangs? “
Well ladies, here are the basic concerns, questions and answers that we should ask ourselves before we reach for the scissors. Oh, and I know you do!
1. Let a professional do it!
It may look easy, but it is not and its front and center. There is no hiding a mistake.
2. Not every bang is for everyone. The shape of your face determines what style of bang would look most flattering.

* A round or heart shaped face can look good with a very hard angular straight bang because it balances out the other round features.

* A square face shape should avoid a straight line and go with a wispy curtain fringe that is longer at the temple area and you could even sweep it off to the side.

* An Oval shaped face can pretty much pull anything off.
3. The rule of thumb is that wherever the length of the bang ends, that is the feature that you emphasize

So, for instance, the long heavy curtain bang is going to high light your cheek bones or nose, but the bangs that skim the brow will highlight the eyes. If you want to highlight great brows or a fantastic pair of eyes or frames you will want to go with a baby bang.
Flattering bangs should frame and highlight your most positive features and not overwhelm the face.
4. Questions every girl should ask themselves before they make the commitment.
* Do I mind hair in my face?

• * Will I be able to make time for regular trims?

* Will I be willing to style my bangs every day?

* Do I wear glasses? This will affect how the bang will lay.

* Make sure you understand the level of commitment if you have highly textured hair or a cow lick that will have to be addressed daily.

With all this taken into consideration, they are a fun way to add sass to an old cut, often giving the allusion of youth or length to your hair. Highlighting your best features and hiding your worst. If you have never taken the plunge give it a whirl, it could be the change that you needed. Come and see us at The Day Spa @ Folawns. We will bang you right into shape!
