You can Have Jennifer Anniston’s Fabulous Look

unnamed-26
Hollywood’s most sought-after colorist and co-creator of “The Rachel,” Michael Canalé, is pushing the standard in the hair industry. The man behind some of the most famous locks including, Jennifer Aniston, Heidi Klum, Shakira, Penelope Cruz, and Carolyn Murphy, is expanding the way the beauty world views hair color – proving that it really is an art form. Best known for being Jennifer Aniston’s long-time colorist (he, along with stylist Chris McMillan, created the coif that later became known simply as the “Rachel”), Canalé is frequently called upon by celebs, models, and industry elite for his innovative technique and keen eye. Highly regarded for his corrective color method, he focuses on the natural beauty of hair, making sure to protect and prevent damage. Since the beginning of his career, Canalé has been a true pioneer of his style, leaving clients with hair that is healthy as it is gorgeous.
Voted “Best-of-the-Best” by Allure Magazine 14 years in a row and touted by Vogue as “not only really good, he’s really fast,” Canalé personally travels between locations in Rancho Santa Fe, San Francisco, Dallas, New York, Washington DC and Beverly Hills, making sure that each of his clients gets the hands-on attention they need to look and feel their very best. With over 30 years’ experience, Michael Canalé is a rare talent and truly among the best in the industry; his work has been published in Allure, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Women’s Health, Elle, Marie Claire, Redbook, Glamour, and New Beauty, to name a few.
If that wasn’t enough, Michael Canalé has created Canalé, a gentle but effective line of products using hypoallergenic formulae. Four products that work together as a core system to cleanse, condition, nourish and thicken the hair, including a dry “touch up” shampoo, which helps extend time between water washes- creating a virtuous circle of less frequent and gentle washing that extends color life and improves condition, starting at the follicular level.

Home Decor and Roof Repair- Getting a New Roof and Decorating your Home

Whether you urgently need to replace your current roof or are in the middle of an ongoing roofing project, there are always professionals who can help. There are different reasons why you may need to invest in a new roof. The roofing process can be challenging but in the end it is always assuring to know that you have a properly installed roof that will protect your home.

New Roofs

Some of the reasons for considering new roofs include increasing the value of your home, moving into a new home, leaks as well as signs of damage and the adverse effects of extreme weather conditions such as storms. The life expectancy of roofs varies, with many being expected to last for approximately 10 years. It is highly recommended for home owners to think about replacing their roofs, especially if the roof is significantly older.

Protection

Waiting until roofing problems such as mold and water leaks occur should be avoided. A roof that is in bad condition does not only ruin the appearance of your home, it can be extremely hazardous for you and your loved ones.

Leaking roofs can cause mildew and mold problems to develop around the home. Mold issues are not usually discovered until the installation of a new roof. At this point, you and your family may be susceptible to the health challenges that are associated with mold spores. Keeping a leaky roof is not worth risking your wellbeing for.

Energy Efficiency

Along with being a valuable addition to your home, new roofing may enable you to save money. Modern roofing offers improved energy efficiency. If you rely on older roofing technology, you may be missing out in the benefits of an energy efficient roof such as reduced cooling and heating bills. A good roof also contributes to the general comfort of your home.

Home Decor- Furniture and Space Utility

  • A critical aspect of effective home decor is furniture arrangement. Furniture is not only functional, it is decorative as well. It should always be arranged in a way that utilizes the amount of space available while enabling people to relax, engage in conversation, move around and enjoy being in the room.
  • If the space you have is limited, avoid cramming several pieces into it. For people who have large spaces, it can be challenging to determine what to do with all the space. Combine pieces such as sofas, chairs and tables strategically within small spaces. The goal is to have the furniture you need without compromising on the amount of space that you actually have.
  • For smaller spaces, there are different furnishing options that you can creatively use to such as corner seating that does not require a lot of room. Incorporate empty spaces in your decor. Spacious rooms do not be filled to the brim.

Balance

As long as you maintain a sense of balance, each room will serve its purpose effectively. When furniture is a priority, you should design and decorate your home while considering the sizes of the rooms. Space utility is a major component of any decorating endeavor.

GET THE LOOK

Who: Rimmel London Ambassador Rita Ora at the LA Premiere of 50 Shades Darker

The Look: Feminine with an edge

The Inspiration:  Celebrity Makeup Artist Kathy Jeung was inspired by the actress, singer and Rimmel London Ambassador’s floral Giambattista Valli gown, which reminded her of beautiful vintage English floral prints and watercolor paintings. She left Rita’s skin glowing with soft, rosy pink lips, eyes and cheeks.

How to Get the Look: 

SKIN
After applying moisturizer, Kathy brushed on Rimmel London Match Perfect Concealer in Light/Medium, letting it set and tapping with her ring finger to blend. Next, she applied Rimmel London InstaFlawless Skin Tint to give Rita’s skin a radiant finish. To set the look, Kathy lightly dusted her skin with Rimmel London InstaFlawless Fix and Matte Setting Powder using a fluffy face brush.

To finish, she applied Rimmel London Sculpting and Highlighting Kit by Kate Moss in Golden Sands to contour and highlight Rita’s cheeks, leaving them with a rosy glow.

LIPS 
Kathy prepped Rita’s lips with Rimmel London Lip Conditioning Balm by Kate as a primer and then applied Rimmel London Rimmel London The Only 1 Matte in Salute

EYES & BROWS
Kathy used Rimmel London Magnif’Eyes Eye Contouring Palette in London Nudes Calling and Keep Calm & Wear Gold, applying a beige color on the browbone and rosy bronze color on the lid and crease, blending it out towards the temples. For an added pop, she applied a metallic gold shade to the corner of the eyes.

To enhance her gorgeous brows, Kathy used the Rimmel London Brow This Way Sculpting Kit in Blonde. She brushed Rita’s brows into place with brush, then filled, shaped and set them with the wax and powder.
Finally, she applied Rimmel London Scandaleyes Mascara to upper and lower lashes.

Where to Find Them: Rimmel London products are available at chain drug stores and mass retailers nationwide. Visit www.RimmelLondon.com for store locations and to try the newest products with Rimmel London’s exclusive Virtual Makeup Tool.

5 Fashion Tips for Lab Workers

imgres-1

Every morning, we face the sometimes tricky question of what to wear. On workdays, the answer to this question becomes a bit easier. After all, formal wear is easier to choose than casual wear. But if your workplace is a laboratory, you will have a hard time finding something stylish to wear to work.

A lab setting is different from that of an office, as you will find out when you start your medical laboratory scientist program online. For one, your dress code must adhere to strict safety regulations. And to be honest, a ubiquitous white lab coat hardly makes a fashion statement. But, you can still be stylish. If you try hard enough, you can even overcome the public perception of “scientists” as unkempt workaholics.

Dress Stylishly, but Follow Safety Regulations

Labs are full of hazardous materials and equipment. This makes them dangerous places to work in if you are not careful. For this reason, regulations require lab workers to adhere to a strict dress code.

Wear Your Hair in a Ponytail, Up-do, or Bob

Although you are free to dress as you please in a lab, how you do your hair can put you at risk of injury. Bunsen burners can singe or burn long hair if it is not in a bun or up-do. To avoid having to hold your hair up every time you visit a lab, try a ponytail or short bob style.

Leave Sandals and Open Toe Shoes at Home

As stylish as they might look in an office, open toes shoes have no place in a lab. You are also not allowed to wear sandals, even on casual Friday. These two types of footwear leave your foot or parts of it exposed to chemical spills. So, to maintain a sense of style in the lab, go for cute loafers or better yet, tall riding boots. The latter are sexy and contrast sharply with the “unkempt scientist” stereotype.

No Short Skirts, Dresses and Shorts

Showing a bit of flesh is all well and good outside the lab. After all, having pursued a medical laboratory scientist program online is no reason to wear drab clothes. But in the lab, short hemlines expose your skin to hazardous chemicals.

So, as much as you love being sexy, keep hemlines below the knee. And if you detest wearing long skirts or dresses, wear leggings or pants instead.

Wear Short Sleeved Tops

Billowy or long sleeves peek under the lab coat and risk being stained by chemicals or ignited by Bunsen burners. To avoid the possibility of this happening, wear short or three-quarter sleeves.

Avoid Bulky Clothes

As most labs are cold places to work in, freezing is part of a lab workers job description. That is, unless you are working with Bunsen burners. So to keep warm, you will be tempted to wear bulky clothes under your lab coat.

A good alternative to bulking up is wearing thin layered clothes. You can peel off a few of them if it gets warm. And when temperatures drop, make sure you have a light cardigan or jacket nearby.

Despite the sterile environment and strict dress code, being fashionable in a lab is still possible. Simply mind how you wear your hair and although the lab is cold, avoid the temptation to wear bulky clothes.

Beautiful! Maisie Williams Hair 2017 SAG Awards

unnamed-22

At the 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards held at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California, Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams shined on the red carpet in her gorgeous pink gown and sleek hair style. Her go-to stylist, Ryan Richman, used MOP salon haircare products to create this glamorous and sophisticated look. See below for his step-by-step:

Hairstylist: Ryan Richman

Inspiration: The classic silhouette of Maisie’s dress

Look: Deep side part and old Hollywood glamour tousled curls

“I washed the hair with MOP Lemongrass Volume Shampoo ($22) to help ‘fatten up’ the hair.  On damp hair I applied a generous amount of MOP Lemongrass Volume Whip ($22) to add volume throughout the style and to protect against heat.

Using a medium boar bristle round brush and my Revlon Soft Feel AC Motor Dryer, I blow dried one inch sections, lifting at the root for maximum volume.

I created a deep side part with a comb and began to curl the hair with my Revlon Pro Collection 1″ Soft Feel Curling Iron, curling the hair toward the face for a retro feel. After curling I sprayed the hair with MOP C-System Firm Finish Hairspray ($24) to hold the curl.

Using a gentle scalp brush I brushed through the curls pulling them back off of the face to create uniform and soft old Hollywood waves.

To finish, I applied a dime size amount of MOP Orange Peel Molding Cream ($22) to my finger tips to clean up the hair line, smooth fly aways, and define texture by running my hands over the style gently.  I then tucked the small side of the part behind the ear and secured with a bobby pin.”
