Golden Globes Set Glamorous Tone for Hair in 2016

We're off to a fantastic start for 2016 with the Golden Globes putting hair front and center for fashion with lots of glamorous styles to follow.

Colors remained mostly tone-on-tone with beautiful, but subtle, variations. We did see some stars wearing their hair with a darker base at the roots and some lighter pieces in a balayage treatment to create a soft and sexy look. Overall, we're staying with more natural looks and soft transitions.

One of my favorite actresses, Kate Hudson, wore her hair in simple, sexy soft waves in a blend of different blonde shades, parted down the middle, a no-fuss style but with lots of enchanting depth.

Olivia Wilde had a similar style but in a different flavor with darker roots, something we've seen a lot of recently, and some balayage treatment for that sun-kissed natural look and some highlights around the face.

There were lots of asymmetrical styles, too, at varying lengths with parts deep on the side, the hair pulled over, but that doesn't necessarily mean slick and streamlined. Kate Winslet showed us how. She nailed it beautifully.

Katy Perry had a tone on tone 1960 look. Maria Menounos was a standout with a crowning tiara braid, creating an elegant look to go with her beautiful off-white gown at what is one of the film and television industry's most important award events.

Dallas Howard shows that reds are headed toward spring in more golden and coppery shades.

Jamie lee Curtis rocked the Pixie with her natural hair color. Lady Gaga gave us Marilynn Monroe.

How about Regina King with those soft, '20s finger waves and dazzling earrings to finish of a look that makes us want to go back into that era with our flapper dresses and dance the night away?

The Golden Globes really set the stage, because this is the first major awards event of the year, and one of the most important for the movie and television industry. This is also one of the more formal, elegant events of the year, and it felt as though hair was a focal point of the fashion this year at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, so we're off to a great start for 2016 with lots of beautiful options.

It's all there! Love the change.Read more at:black prom dresses uk | pink prom dresses uk

Paying attention to your skin

With the weather turning colder it’s time to really pay attention to your skin. Forget the makeup for now and just focus on taking care of your skin. With the colder temperatures and drier air, skin is going to become dry and tight and no amount of makeup is going to be able to hide that. A consistent skincare regimen needs to be in place to keep skin soft and radiant throughout the harsh winter months.

Start off by using a creamy face cleanser. You don’t want to use anything that will strip the skin of its natural oils. Even if your skin tends to be on the oiler side, that doesn’t mean you should use a harsh cleanser. When oily skin is overwashed and dry, the skin begins producing more oils. So then it becomes this vicious cycle of oil, dry, oily, dry. You’ll never win. A gentle cleanser like Cetaphil is nice for all skin conditions and won’t dry the skin out or cause breakouts.

Exfoliation is really important all year long, but especially in the winter. Skin becomes dry and flaky and in order to remove those dead skin cells, you have to exfoliate. Whether you use a gentle sugar scrub or just a warm, wrung out washcloth, exfoliating must become part of your skin care routine. You will see a brighter, more radiant complexion!

I’m sure I’ve said this before, but it’s amazing to me how many women don’t use a moisturizer. It’s just very surprising to me the number of women I speak to who say they don't use a moisturizer. Geesh-I have one for day and night! The formula should definitely change from season to season, but you should always use a moisturizer, especially during the winter. Dry skin causes wrinkles and fine lines. Use a moisturizer that is appropriate for your skin condition.

My skin is dry all year round, so for me, the richer the better. Even in the summer months. Nothing is too rich for me. But that is not the case for everyone, so you should visit an aesthetician or make an appointment with your dermatologist to find out exactly what kind of skin you have.

Eye cream is another must-have. I don’t care if you’re only 22, you should be using eye cream as a preventative measure at that age. I’ve had clients in their 60s and 70s who don't use eye cream. It’s absurd! Eye cream will soften the lines and wrinkles you have and will help to prevent new ones from forming.

Everyone also seems to forget their lips. I am forever applying copious amounts of lip balm to my clients because they don’t seem to use any. Lips are dry, flaky, and sometimes cracked because they’re being completely ignored. I am not sure how these symptoms could be missed. Have you tried applying lipstick to dry, cracked lips? I have, and it is not pretty! Use a rich lip balm on your lips throughout each day to keep them hydrated.

Don’t forget your SPF! SPF is not just for summer. People forget that the sun’s rays are strongest in the wintertime so apply your SPF 30 or higher as the last step in your skincare routine. It will protect your skin from sunburn, dark spots, wrinkles, and skin cancer.

Keep your skin at it’s healthiest by taking the best care you can of it. Keeping it clean, exfoliated, and moisturized will ensure that your skin will be in its best condition for a lifetime. You might have to add a few extra steps to your morning routine, but it really doesn’t take that long. Just a few extra minutes each day will keep your skin healthy and glowing!Read more at:vintage evening dresses

The new alternatives

The new alternatives

With their unconventional and unique treatment methods, alternative forms of therapy have started wooing patients.

Mainstream medicine may have its fans, but an increasing number of patients have begun to opt for alternative therapy to treat ailments. While hydrotherapy, mud therapy and sound therapy have been around for quite a while now, other forms of therapy have begun to woo patients.

Here, experts list them out


When a patient exhibited symptoms of severe depression due to a traumatic break-up with his girlfriend, Dr Jyotika Chhibber recommended the Bach Flower Therapy to him. "He had insomnia for days," remembers Dr Chhibber. "The therapy yielded immediate results -not only did he meet up with friends after a long time that very evening, he also resumed work within two to three days," adds the founder and director of The Light of Life Institute in Kandivli.

Bach Flower Therapy, says Dr Chhibber, helps correct emotional imbalances. Some of the flowers used to prepare Bach Essence are Cherry Plum, Wild Rose, White Chestnut, Water Violet, Crab Apple, Honeysuckle, Pine, Star of Bethlehem and Vine. The remedies are either diluted with water and then sipped, or consumed in drops if taken in a concentrated form.They can also be rubbed over the lips, behind the ears, over the temples and wrists. Dr Chhibber explains that the remedies are completely natural and, hence, safe and have no side-effects.


Salt in its natural form, say experts, has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Jamsheed, co founder of Mumbai's only spa that offers salt therapy, Salt Escape, explains that salt cleanses and reduces inflammation in the respiratory airways and skin. "In our treatment rooms, salt is packed in the walls as well as under the floors.Our treatment includes the use of a machine which grinds pharmaceutical salt imported from Germany into fine dust, which is then blown into the rooms for patients to inhale. These tiny dry salt particles penetrate deep into the lungs and bronchi, cleansing the airways and eliminating toxins," he elaborates. The therapy also strengthens the immune system and increases resistance to respiratory diseases.

Although the unique therapy has no side effects, Mehta advises clients who suffer from serious ailments such as heart problems or high blood pressure to first check with their doctor before proceeding with the therapy.


Dance or movement therapy, Dilshad Patel says, works on enhancing mental, physical, emotional, cognitive and the social wellbeing of a person. So, over the course of a couple of sessions, dance or movement therapists observe, interpret and broaden a person's existing movement patterns.

The movement therapist explains that the therapy works on the premise that the mind and body are inseparable and that a change in one affects the other. "I take a case study, understand the goals (for the session) and start working on improving the overall well being (of the client)," she says.

Movement therapy focuses on improving mobility, flexibility, postural awareness, injury prevention and promoting self-worth. Patel, who is part of the Movement for Healthcare programme, where she works with other doctors to help patients cope with existing illnesses, says, "Most patients suffer from a sense of loss, especially in terms of a dysfunction in the body -this includes cases where patients have lost a body part to a disease like cancer. So we work with patients to help them channelise all their energies into making them feel better.It's not just about teaching them specific movements, but it's also about strengthening their natural body language," adds Patel.


Colour therapist and artist Amisha Mehta, who consults patients at her Chowpatty studio Creative Skills, explains that similar to how our bodies get depleted of minerals and vitamins, we run out of colour as well. "You might feel dull or tired and need some colour in your life," she says. The therapy involves the use of all five senses and some of its techniques include getting exposed to coloured light, creating art, visualising colours, wearing specific colours and eating foods of different colours. But the colours need to be administered in the right combination and time period, which only a certified colour therapist can help out with, cautions Mehta. "For example, exposing an aggressive person to the colour red for a long time will only further aggravate things, while blue will calm him down. But the human system needs the colour red as well and an excess of blue might make him feel dull," she elaborates.

We, however, must add a disclaimer: Patients must always consult a doctor before opting for any form of alternative therapy.Read more at:evening gowns
