Happy Holidays!

It is my hope that everyone has a great holiday! I hope that you are able to enjoy this time with your family, friends and loved ones. 

I am looking forward to seeing my family, getting in some good laughs and eating some great food. 

It is my hope that your 2018 has many great things in store for you and yours! Cheers!

Giftsets

It's that time of year again-the holidays. People either get really excited or are hoping the next 2 months go by pretty fast.

I can already feel the buzz at the stores already and there is definitely some excitement in the air. This is just a quick note to say that there are some nice sets coming out this year from multiple brands. 

I have said before, and often say that if there are any brands you want to try, one of the best ways to do so is by trying out samplers. The samplers are the giftsets. These sets are for companies who want to put their best foot forward. For consumers, this is the way to give you the best of the best without having to spend a lot. 

If you are unsure of a full-sized product, try the giftset on for size to determine if a product is for you. The companies are putting their best on display for you and are practically giving away product. These deals that are going to be coming up will be worth you taking some time and checking them out. 

It seems that each year, the giftsets days get a little longer-meaning that sets come out earlier and earlier. If you just aren't quite up to shopping to holiday sets just yet, no worries. There is plenty of time. The majority of them should be out by mid-November. Some are out now. So, check out the stores and online. You're sure to find something to 'wow' you! 

Threading vs. Waxing

So, if you read the last 2 posts in my threading and waxing series, it is my hope that they have been helpful in guarding you with information. 

Now, I want to briefly discuss some diference between the two. 

Threading is the removal of hair using thread. It is excellent for removing hair on the face. It does remove EACH hair hair by hair vs. in one fail swoop. While this can be painful, the result is that you have a clean look without removing the top layer of skin. 

Waxing is the removal of hair using wax. The wax is applied to the skin and then quickly removed resulting in unwanted hair being removed along with a layer of skin. Though the visual may be a little rough, it is a safe method. For me, however, I found it to be too much for my facial skin which resulted in me finding another method-which was threading. 

Waxing is great for quick hair removal of larger areas on the body. Threading is great for smaller areas and if you are allergic to wax. Most was, as discussed in a previous post, are beeswax. There are some soy products but most salons tend to use beeswax. Ask around before going to salons to see if they provide any type of alternative to beewax if you allergic. If you are allergic to beeswax, threading is definitely a great alternative.  

Waxing and threading usually takes anywhere from 10-15 minutes, depending on procedure and expertise of your salon. Depending on the growth and thickness of your hair, your appointments may be something like every 2-4 weeks. I fall right in the middle, going every 3 weeks. These aren't time consuming but so necessary. Brows shape the face and make a dramatic difference in your appearance. 

Whichever method you choose, it is my hope that these posts have enlightened you. Until next time, be beautiful!
