Hair look – award-winner Jessica Lange

Jessica Lange, Tony Awards

Jessica Lange, Tony Awards

 

Oscar Blandi Hair Care was used to create award-winner, Jessica Lange’s hairstyle for the 70th Annual Tony Awards last evening. Jessica won the Best Leading Actress Tony for her role as Mary Cavan Tyrone in Long Day’s Journey Into Night.

Below is the step-by-step from Jessica’s stylist, Michael Silva

  • On damp hair, I used the Oscar Blandi Lift Thickening Gel from roots to ends to make hair appear fuller and more voluminous.
  • Then I used Jasmine Oil Hair Serum on the ends for shine and heat damage control.
  • Using a blow-dryer, I styled section by section with a round brush spraying throughout with the Lacca Medium Hold Hairspray.
  • After the blowout, I backcombed the roots for added volume and sprayed  the Pronto Dry Texture and Volume Spray at the roots.  It makes the style look more natural.
  • Lastly, I lightly brushed out the curls and finished with Lacca Medium Hold Hairspray and a tiny bit more of the Jasmine Oil Hair Serum on the ends.

Red Carpet Insoles for a Red Carpet feel

They are not just any insoles that you pick up at the drug store. These are Red Carpet Insoles and they are wonderful! Red Carpet Insoles are made of Genuine Leather and are available in whatever shoe size you own. The first time I wore them, they were placed in a wedge shoe. My feet fit perfectly in the shoe and my feet felt wonderful after walking in them all day. No sliding, no blisters, just pure comfort. The second time I wore them I placed them in a pair of high heels. The result? I will never wear a heel without Red Carpet Insoles again. Red Carpet Insoles act as a shock absorber relieving pain and foot discomfort. This particular pair of heels, shown above, were actually a tad to big and the insoles made them fit perfectly. It was a whole different walking experience having the insoles in my shoes.

As stated by Red Carpet, Its “design is specifically designed to offer maximum comfort at the ball of the feet, relieving the pain where it hurts the most in high heels (60% of the weight of our body rests on this part of our foot when in high heels). This unique design has a reinforced cushion at the front, as well as a second cushion at the back, for added support of the arch of the foot. Red Carpet is proud to have a Design Patent for designing this innovative product.”

If you don’t want to take my word for it, Red Carpet Insoles was listed as one of the top “Problem Solvers” in Oprah Magazine.

Half Insole

Open toe Insole

 

Red Carpet Insoles are available in an assortment  of colors as well as a leopard print. If you have a pair of open-toe heels, no problem! They even offer half insoles for high heels so there is an insole for every type of shoe.

What to know about solar tracking systems

url

There has been a major increase in the use of technology and power generators that are environmental friendly. The increase in popularity of the green energy movement, has been very influential in making equipment like solar panels as well as solar tracking systems very popular. This has consequently resulted in the preference of renewable sources of power, and this has created more demand for equipment that can generate power using resources like wind, solar and the kinetic force in water. You, as an urban resident, constantly requires a power supply that is stable, and will allow you to go about your daily activities with ease. The electricity that is provided by your government authorities, can be inconsistent and is vulnerable to various technical issues, since it is a large power plant, also repairing this equipment can take some time. When you decide to acquire your own solar panels to have your own backup power source, one of the equipments you will use is a solar tracker, here are some things you should know about this equipment:

  1. Acquiring tracking arrays.

Tracking arrays have been proven to receive more when the sun is at it’s highest intensity, and therefore having them will substantially increase your energy production. If there is limited space for your panels, a smaller array can be used in order to occupy less space, however, it will not be less effective in your energy production rather, it will improve your supply of electricity. If your kit is exposed to a wide open area, and there is no shade around to give obstruction, you will benefit alot from the tracking array, since it will be able to receive every beam of light, from the sun from dusk to dawn all year long. This will maximize the solar energy obtained by your equipment.

  1. Carefully undertake the installation of the power kit.

The tracking arrays are set up like sea sails, they are high above the ground, and this makes them vulnerable to wind force that can make the device unstable and even result in the knocking over. To keep the arrays stable, you should mount the devices on large poles that are at least eight inches in diameter, but if the arrays are bigger you should opt for a pole that is proportional. The components of the tracker can be very heavy, and at times can weigh up to a hundred kilograms. You should position them using a crane or any other mechanical machinery that can conveniently position heavy equipment.

  1. It has a wide range of applications.

As you use solar panels you at times generate extra power, this extra power will only be beneficial to you if you consume it,store it or even sell the excess. A system in which its grid is corrected and is exposed to as much sunlight as possible, is very qualified for a tracking array since every power unit is used. When using a Utility Scale Tracker, the grid your using will record the power consumes in your utility bill.

Bio

Hack Meinz is an engineer and an expert in the field of green technology. He has worked with several organizations and has supervised power plants across America. He offers services in installation of solar panels and can provide a Utility Scale Tracker.

Boom Boom Brow Bar Shares the Top 5 Worse Brow Mistakes

unnamed

 

June, 2016 (New York, NY) – Want brows that WOW like these beautiful arches crafted at Boom Boom Brow Bar in NYC??   Well listen up Cookies, these are the most common mistakes, Boom Boom/owner of Boom Boom Brow Bar, says people make when heading down the wrong trail – don’t do it!

  1. Taking too much from the center – it makes eyes look far apart and tired, and the nose becomes the center of attention.
  1. Taking too much off the tail – the longer the better, so keep every last scraggly and hopefully the dots will connect.
  1. Loosing the arch – rainbows, paisleys, sperm, tadpoles – she’s seen it all…go to a professional to identify areas that need to grow back and then leave them alone so they have time to fill in.
  1. Being obsessive over tweezing – ditch the magnifying mirror and tweezers if trust is an issue. Thin brows are dated!
  1. Pulling out from stress – oh honey, come see Boom Boom, she’ll make it all better!
