Holiday 2011- The Season of Embellishments

Virtually all designer fashion pieces including shoes, clutch purses, jewelry, dresses and camisoles are bedazzled with sequins, rhinestones and metallic embellishments.

The key to wearing an embellished styled dress is to choose your fashion and style accessories carefully. For example, when wearing a sequined dress, pair the outfit with a neutral colored or matching colored clutch purse. Jewelry pieces should be gold, silver or transparent, and shoes should be of a beautiful yet simple design. The key to the perfect accessory pieces is to choose ones that will compliment the overall style.

 Let the sequins be the piece de la resistance of the entire outfit.

 The holidays are also the time to try out a new hairdo.

Lengthen your locks with hair extensions to add a “star worthy” glamour to shorter tresses. Your hair designer can “tape in” hair wefts avoiding the damage that is inherent in the sewed-in or glued-in versions. You can match your hair color, contrast for a high or lowlights or mix it up with fun colors to reveal your inner artist! With proper care, your extended locks can last you through out the winter months.

Tired of fighting the elements during damp and rainy days? You can now banish the frizz, reduce drying time, and add a healthy shine to your hair even in dampest of weather. Recent technological developments from Bumble and Bumble can provide just such a professional service (a home version will be available in December). Bumble Straight Smoothing Treatment is free of formaldehyde and lye ingredients often in similar products. Now, you can have smooth, shiny, healthy hair for as many as 30 shampoos.
