How to Wear a Middle Part


Did you know that middle parts are making a comeback? It's a classic and easy look, but it can also be a little tricky, depending on your face shape. Who should go for it? Ladies with long, oval, or square faces. Not that it never works for ladies with very round faces—it can just make their cheeks look wider, so if that's a concern for you, maybe stick to a side part and find another trend to hop on. Well, Sandra Bullock not only cosigned that in Venice (where is is promoting her new movie Gravity with George Clooney), but she decided to show us all how to really do one.


There's a little detail in the back there that makes her middle part crazy-flattering.
And that something is a bit of height created by brushing just the very back of her hair straight away from her face. This move makes for a really lovely shape in the front that makes a middle part 1,000 times more wearable. Plus, it makes you look a smidge taller, which is music to the ears of those of us who are vertically challenged.

Rachel + Dan

Rachel was a stunning bride!  They hosted beautiful summer wedding at Magnolia Plantation Carriage House. This rustic yet elegant inspired occasion was the perfect celebration, enjoyed by family and friends. The bride and groom exchanged their vows outside among a beautiful, southern landscape with a picture perfect view of the lowcountry waterfront.  The rustic and southern feel of the Carriage House provided the perfect venue for this romantic, natural, and rustic inspired wedding. The couples sweet personalities were seen throughout their wedding day, I love the cake stands, don't you? Photography courtesy of King Street Studios and wedding planner Pure Lux Bridal

6 Tips for Curly Hair

I am a huge fan of curly hair! When done right, it can speak so much about your personality and beauty outlook. But textured hair requires the right care and styling products. You need the perfect amount of hydration, frizz-control, and styling. Below you will find some frugal, drugstore beauty products to help you rock the best tendrils possible!

1. Curly hair tends to get tangled easily. To avoid stubborn knots and tangles, always use a wide-tooth comb. Start at the ends working upward and spray hair lightly with a product like Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil. It gives instant smoothness and shine.

2. Invest in a silk pillow or wrap your hair in a silk scarf before going to bed. Silk is very gentle on the hair cuticle and won't roughen hair fibers. You'll wake up with great-looking hair every time.

3. With each new season, switch your hair routine just like you do with your skin care. The summer months call for lighter products that can be used on wet or dry hair to boost and define natural curls or give added definition and shine. Try Garnier Fructis Style Curl Shaping Spray Gel; it gives the perfect amount of light control for soft waves and curls.

4. If you're beach bound, grab suncreen for your skin and sun-protect your hair with Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment. Saturate wet hair with it for extra conditioning and protecting benefits.

5. Twisting hair after washing will break the curls and create frizz. Instead, gently squeeze excess water from hair using your towel and then apply Garnier Fructis Style Curl Calm Down Anti-Frizz Cream. Work a big dollop of the product into your hands first to activate the ingredients, then gently massage into hair without pulling or tugging. Allow hair to air-dry for frizz-free curls.

6. Color-treated curly hair needs extra conditioning. Do a weekly conditioning treatment like Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition 3-Minute Undo Dryness Reversal Treatment, which quickly reverses dryness and adds lots of nourishment to curls. Hydrated hair holds on to color longer and always looks healthier.
