Who is Ready for Summer?

By: Samantha Swecker

Who is looking for a hot, trendy, new summer style? Whether it’s a hair cut that’s daring… or just a new style for the day? So What’s New?

The soft easy beach wave is the trendy style that has been around for a couple months now. This style is great for long flowy hair or even medium length hair with an angle. Everyone with a 1 or even a 1/2 inch curling iron can achieve this style quite simply. Curl the hair, keeping a loose grip on the hair, holding the ends out of the curling iron. This leaves the hair smooth to the touch but wavy like you just got out of the ocean.

Speaking of the beach, Braids are a perfect way to stay with the summer styles but keep your hair out of your face. Any and all braids are fun, stylish, and never go out of style. The side fish tail braids, the braided headband, a loose French braid or the knot braid will always keep you looking trendy.

Hold up, let’s go back to knots. Who has ever seen someone with the simple and trendy top knot? We all think the same thing… that would never look great on me, but it’s cute on her. Toss those thoughts out the window. Top knots, if done right, are cute and trendy on every girl. Okay, the top knot is super easy. The top half of the hair needs to be separated from the bottom. Do a loose messy bun, with the top of the hair. Pull some pieces ( not fully out) to loosen it up. This gives you the messy look but keeping it stylish. Great for a girls night out, a day out on the town, or even, believe it or not, great for the gym.

Fun Fact- its Lauren Conrads favorite hair style. Spice the messy look up with a braid or make it a double bun. Its fun just to try.

Last but not least, the daring pixie cut. This may be a dramatic change to most but a must have if you are sick of the long hair. This is a great wash and go style for the girls on the go. But that girl that everyone wants to be this summer is going to be you with these must haves.




Stop, Freeze, Relax

by: Laura Koontz

It’s something I can talk to anyone about, anytime, anywhere. I can be at a wedding, at the grocery store, or talking outside with my neighbors. I joke with people that either

A) Need to buy stock in the company

B) Need to get in contact with upper management about getting paid for advertisement

Because I am that: A walking advertisement. and my personal and professional obsession, you ask? Biofreeze.

Biofreeze is a product that can be used on the whole family for so many different reasons. Wake up in the morning with a stiff neck? Biofreeze. Twinge your knee in a intense game of adult slow pitch softball? Biofreeze. Biofreeze is a gel that you massage or roll on to your problem area and within a few minutes you will feel a cooling sensation that gets down deep into the muscle to relieve the pain.

At the salon, we carry the professional biofreeze, unlike what you can find at any drugstore. The professional biofreeze has two wonderful benefits…

  1. it last longer than the original biofreeze, up to two times longer
  2. It has less of a menthol scent which can be great for those of us who are sensitive to smells.

so after this blog, I guess I am more than a walking advertisement for Biofreeze, I am total free advertisement. You’re welcome, guys. You know where to find me!

Bio the way

By: Brooklyn Carter

It’s May! Which means we are just one step closer to summer. The flowers are finally blooming after those April showers and the pollutants and pollen are even heavier. Its time to take care of all of that. Luckily, we have a wide variety of Bioelements Products to put a jump start on your summer skin regimen.

Bioelements has been around since 1991, individualizing formulas to treat the skin, not mask it. At the beginning and the end of the day, you should be using a cleanser to wash away any dirt, makeup or other impurities. You will find that Flash Foam cleanser will do just that. The most fantastic part of this gentle exfoliant is that it only requires one pump per use. Just imagine just how many days you could get out of just one bottle. Flash foam contains Pumpkin, papaya and pineapple extracts taking control of those flakes; leaving the skin soft and smooth with that breathe taking refreshment. How many products do you know that are only one step for all skin types? Not many, but simple to apply. Apply to wet skin, massage over the face and neck and finally rinse. See I told you, simple.

It’s important to follow up with a toner after cleansing. The equalizer is just the product for you. (Not for sensitive skin) This hydrating toner is infused with rose oil and designed to rebalance and nourish the skin which leaves it feeling refreshed, prepping it for the next product. Just remember that if you have sensitive skin, this is not good for your skin. We do have a sensitive a skin line through Bioelements. The Equalizer will not dry out the skin. This product is a spray, spritz it all over the face and neck, massage it in, then apply the next product.

The next product and the last product to finish up your new skincare routine is the Raydefense. Raydefense is one of Bioelements UVA/UVB SPF 30 moisturizers that provides protection for active lifestyles and anyone exposed to the sun. Using this lightweight and hydrating cream will help fight the risk of skin cancer and the early signs of aging. Great and safe to put under the freshly applied makeup that way you are protected all day.

Its amazing what only 3 products can do for your skin and you will surely be amazed when you put the power of these 3, together! All of the products mentioned are also Bioelements best sellers, being Sold at Elements of Style Salon and Day Spa… Come in and see what works best for your skin.
