Brow-less Beauty

Mona Lisa is one of Leonardo DaVinci’s greatest works of art. Have you ever wondered, “Where are her eyebrows?” “Did he forget them?”

Well, DaVinci did not forget anything. In fact, brow less foreheads were considered a sign of beauty. Women would tweeze their eyebrows and hairlines to show an expansion of their forehead. They did this to look more intelligent, because it would make their forehead look larger and therefore seem like they had a larger brain. Women would then pumice the tweezed area to make it smooth. Now, I think it is great that they thought knowledge equaled beauty, but I am glad that this beauty trend did not stick around. They say beauty is pain, and in this case that is very true.

Hair trends for fall of 2013

It’s almost that magical time of the year… boots, scarves, pumpkin spice lattes, brisk air…. fall! And with all of the joys of fall also come new hair trends. Here are some the most popular looks for fall of 2013.

1. The “Effortless” Ponytail

Spring ponytails were positioned at the nape and ironed to emphasize their sleekness. For fall, the position stays put but textures differ. Pieces were pulled down around the face or tucked behind the ears to emphasize the style’s haphazard ease.

 

2. The Pompadour

The deliciously relaxed quality provides a stark contrast to an exquisitely made up face.  It gives off a very nonchalant vibe. Think, “Um-Yes-I-look-this-good-right-out-of-the-shower.” If this mermaid of the sea look is not for you, try it delicately twisted up and pinned.

Androgyny is in. More so now than ever women are lopping off their locks and opting for a shorter style. Not only is it fun and sweet, but lets be honest… there’s just something invigorating and empowering about chopping all of your hair off.  Short hair looks great on anyone with strong features, and it also works on a variety of lengths and textures.

7.  Warm colors

No matter if you’re a blonde, brunette, or redhead, colors with lots of warmth are the way to go this fall. Golden and honey blondes are replacing the icy grey and lavender tones we saw last year. With brunettes, we are seeing a lot of auburn undertones, and with redheads more are leaning towards red-orange hues than red-violet.  Think cozy campfire…mmm hmm!
