Whether it was straight, wavy or curly, they had a gorgeous head of hair. What were these women doing different or more, maybe? Nothing actually. They knew their hair type and how to take care of it accordingly. Hair can be divided into 4 types mainly. This is different from the words used to describe the texture or condition of the hair like, frizzy, oily, dry and normal.   Straight Hair   Straight hair is probably one of the most sought after hair type. Straight hair usually has fine and thin strands of hair. One of the issues of straight hair is volume. Straight hair tends to hang limp with no body whatsoever.

Korean Beauty Secrets

My best friend is obsessed with K pop and practically everything related to Koreans. So naturally she pulled me into it. While I can’t sit through a single episode of Korean dramas (way too lovey dovey for my taste), I listen to their music sometimes and I love the movie called 200 Pound Beauty! Koreans have certain beauty standards that might be considered different to western culture. While its all the rage to be tanned in America, Koreans prefer snow white skin. Koreans are really obsessed with beauty. Other than being one of the places where plastic surgery ads are commonly seen on the streets, they also have beauty secrets. The one I’ll talking about is the 10 step skincare rountine The 10 Step Skincare Routine Because your usual cleanse, tone and moisturise isn’t enough. “Skincare is a culture in Korea”, so it’s obvious that these women would definitely have a lengthier skincare regime.

90′s Fashion Comeback

Fashion keeps getting recycled and reinvented. Lately I’ve quite a few trends that reminds me of fashion back in the 90′s. You’d be surprised to find what made the list   High waisted jeans With the rise of the low waisted skinny jeans in the last couple of years, I’m glad to see both high waisted and low waisted jeans coexist peacefully on the racks.   Ripped jeans The 90′s is often thought of as the grunge era, what’s more grunge than ripped jeans? Ripped jeans are now a wardrobe staple if you want a casual look.   Harem pants Remember the iconic parachute pants MC Hammer wore in his music video? Well harem pants are back. They don’t have a puffy look that parachute pants do, they are more tailored.   Sneakers Recently luxury fashion houses like Chanel and Dior have come out with “fashionable” sneakers. Needless to say, sneakers are the biggest shoe trend right now.   Denim Continue Reading »

90′s Supermodel Nostalgia

September is the most important and fashionable month of the year. The magazines are outrageously thick and are filled with amazing editorials and glossy campaigns. Thinking about this got me nostalgic about the time when supermodels used to grace the covers of Vogue. Think more along the lines of Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Kate Moss and Brooke Shields instead of celebrities from the film or music industry. Look at these 90′s Vogue covers, they seem like they are from a different era.     – Neha Prasad

Loving This Week: Braids Part 2

I decided to split my favourite braid hairstyles into two parts otherwise it would have been too long. Since the human attention span now is at all time low, I thought, well two short posts are definitely better than one long one! So here are the rest of my favourites! Milkmaid Braid This hairstyle is pretty straight forward. Start by part your hair down the middle and by dividing it into two equal sections. Now with each section of hair, do a three strand braid AKA the regular braid. Once your done braiding your hair, tie it with a hair tie. Pick up one braid and lay it on the opposite side of your head and pin it down. Do the same with the other braid and voila, you’re done.   Dutch Side Braid   It’s exactly like a dutch braid except that the braid starts from the side. Hence the name of the hairstyle! The dutch braid is similar Continue Reading »

Loving This Week: Braids Part 1

My go to hairstyle for the summer are braids. Since I have long hair, I don’t usually leave it open since its really hot. If I get bored of ponytails and have a bit of time I go for a classic French braid/ plait. Here are some of my favourite braid hairstyles.   French Plait Unless you’ve had a lot of practice, it’s better if you can get someone to do your hair for this style of braiding. Start of by sectioning the top part of your hair. You can use your forehead as a scale of measure. The middle of your forehead is good. Using your thumbs or a rat tail comb, pick up and section off the hair. Now divide it into three parts and start crossing each strand once. Then start picking up equal sections of hair on either side, adding it to the existing braid and crossing it. Repeat it on either side till there’s no Continue Reading »
