New Year, New You: 8 Celebrity Hairstyle to Copy This New Year’s Eve

Pretty Posts |

Every time I get invited to an end-of-year party the first thing I ask myself — after having chosen the right outfit — is: how shall I wear my hair? I’m sure this has happened to all of you as well. Despite having had short cuts and bobs over the last few years because I find those styles easier to manage, especially when you are going for a different color every season (I love changing the color of my locks! In just a few months I went from platinum to pink, then blue and finally turquoise!), I still run into this problem, especially when I want something really special. After all, New Year’s Eve only happens once every 12 months! If you, too, are undecided, follow my lead: have a look at how the stars are wearing their hair: they are always a great source of inspiration. To make your job easier, I’ve chosen some of the best hair looks as seen on the 2017 red carpet for you. Go ahead and choose your favorite!

My 2018 Masking List

Pretty Posts |

A few years ago, nearly overnight, masking became a part of my regular beauty routine. I’ve barely been able to live without them, partially because the masks of today are just so quick. When I think about my beauty routine in, say, 1997, the outward results of a 20-minute Bioré or Neutrogena purifying mask were so… underwhelming. And messy. These days, all I need is 10 minutes of pampering with any one of my masks from anywhere in the world, and I have suddenly eliminated impurities, moisturized, and full of an honest, healthy glow. The immediate effect masks have on our skin create the perfect base for any treatment to follow, and according to any expert I’ve asked over the years, masks accelerate results. The energy boost and the removal of dead skin cells are also key, but most importantly, they create a barrier against internal aggressors and free radicals. There is now a mask for every type of problem, and I am here to tell you all of the masks that I, dedicated beauty addict, will be using in the coming year.
