New Haircuts To Try This Fall
A new season means it is time for a new do, a hairdo that is. And whether you go for a pixie cut, a lob, or just add in a few layers, changing up your look for the cooler season ahead is like buying a new wardrobe to head back to school. It is exciting, boosts your confidence, and shakes things up.
A new hairstyle can push you to change up your go-to makeup look. It can draw attention to your bone structure or your eyes. It can also make your hair routine less of a struggle on a daily basis. There is so much a new style can do for you. So here are some fun and simple haircuts to try out. And also some more bold looks if you are daring to make the chop.
First up is my favorite. I wish I had the bone structure to pull this one off. In a sense, it is a bob, but it is way shorter than I have ever gone with my hair. You may think shorter styles are better for summer, so your hair won’t stick to your sweaty neck, and perhaps that is true, but there is something about a short hairstyle that is so chic for fall. It draws attention to the jawline and makes thin hair look more voluminous. Plus, for those like me, whose hair gets weighed down by everything this sort of do is ideal. On the practical side, there will be no more scarf induced knots in your hair.
If you think short hair is only for straight hair, you would be wrong my friend. This style is stunning for all hair types and textures. Keeping all the hair off your neck, and letting your natural coils and curls frame your face cannot only be the change you have been looking for, but it slims out the face and lifts your features. A short haircut like this is so flattering and feminine. Letting a few loose curls peek out from behind your knitted hat this winter will be adorable.
Curtain bangs are making a wave in the hair world and are not your average bangs. Bangs don’t have to hide your entire forehead. They don’t have to cause breakouts along your hairline, and they do not have to be a regrettable decision. If you have been considering bangs, but are constantly halted by the fear that you’ll regret them before they grow out, this is the style for you. Curtain bangs are longer than your average bangs and they blend into the rest of your hair so much more subtly. They are often cut into a hair with a center part, so they can be blended in with an angle. They can even pass chin length. With this style, you get the face-framing benefits and style that a fringe creates, but without the regret.
Lob AKA Long Bob
A lob, the safe version of the bob, without the bluntness of the classic bob. A lob is a long bob. And what is so great about this is you can adjust it to suit your style. If you prefer something a bit more undone, you can throw some angles and layers to give your hair more movement and texture. But if you like more of a chic and perfected look, you can have it cut with a straight edge. This is ideal if you leave your hair straight most of the time, but also works if you love the curling iron. It is a great way to test out a shorter hairstyle without committing to never putting your hair up in a bun. This is what I went for in spring, and adore it. It is making me want to go shorter and shorter.
I Woke Up Like This
This is what I like to call the lazy girl’s cut. It is the simplest to maintain, grows out evenly, and requires minimum if any styling. It is longer than shoulder length, it hits about the same point as your armpit, but still wouldn’t be described as long. It can easily be thrown up or braided, as the layers are quite minimal, but it is not a drastic hair transformation if you are looking for something a bit more subtle.
Natural or Nappy
Lastly just go all natural. There is nothing more beautiful than letting your natural locks go with the flow. Now, this is not the lowest maintenance hairstyle, as it often requires a lot of conditioner and product, especially in the cooler months. But the great thing is you can deep condition overnight, so it doesn’t have to be so awfully time-consuming. And women rocking their natural hair texture is becoming a movement and strengthening representation and diversity. Women wearing their hair natural is not exotic or trendy, it is stunning and powerful.
So which of these photos are you going to save to show your hairstylist? I am so considering #1 or maybe even some curtain bangs.

For real summer is officially over. What does that mean for your beauty routine? Your skin will most likely start to parch, and that increase in dryness is localized on your cheeks, lips, under eyes, back, and legs. So, other than amping up your moisturizer game, here is how you can make your skincare and beauty routines work this fall.
As much as budget buying in the beauty world is easy and convenient, there is nothing like splurging on luxury beauty products. Whether it be skincare, makeup or hair care, when you invest in yourself the feeling is indescribable. So here are just some of the luxury brands that not only make you look amazing, but make you feel extra fabulous.
Have you heard of franken-makeup? Maybe not. After all, it is a relatively new idea and is not exactly a running success. No, it isn’t making your makeup look like Frankenstein or anything like that. It also isn’t the next cat eye or liquid lip craze. It was first introduced to the online beauty community about a year ago by one of the most unique creators there is Safiya Nygaard.
Whether you are looking to revamp your beauty collection, go entirely cruelty-free on a budget, or just want to delve into the world of affordable beauty, these are some cruelty-free brands selling phenomenal makeup for mostly under $5. Many of them even have a large number of vegan products available, and rarely cost more than $10.
“What do you mean?” is probably a question you ask a lot if you read about beauty, but are less than familiar with beauty jargon. Beauty, like most everything else in life, is all about learning. There is an endless world of techniques, looks, styles and ideas to know, play with, and master. So here are some of the most common and confusing beauty slang words and their definitions.
If you want to customize your lip scrub and have full control over what you put on your skin, or are on a budget but still want a quality product that works wonders, DIY is your best bet. And trust me, I made the best lip scrub last week and it took under 2 minutes. My lips are smoother and more kissable than ever before! Plus, this is the best time to get into the lip scrub life, because that chill in the air will only get colder, bringing with it cracked and flaky lips.
Beauty brands can no longer launch without some sort of concept beyond “this is skincare” or “this is makeup.” With the beauty space so full that even the biggest of beauty lovers cannot possibly get their hands on everything, brands need to stand out from the crowd. Of course, there are new brands launching what seems like daily, but these 4 are some beauty brands that really stand out due to their unique ideas, fun concepts, or intense transparency.
Unless you have been living under a rock (with the latest political news, I wouldn’t blame you), you have likely heard something about blackhead vacuums. Nearly every beauty blogger and vlogger has reviewed one. These handy gadgets are super intriguing. You know the satisfaction when you rip off a pore strip and see the grossness come off, seeing blackheads being sucked out with a vacuum is much better. With all the hype, do these gadgets really work? And if so, which ones are the best?
We have all heard of the Clarisonic, Foreo, and Neutrogena Light Therapy Mask. And thanks to stunning celebrities like Tracee Ellis Ross and Sarah Hyland, we also know and love the coveted Nurse Jamie tools. There are so many beauty gadgets around, it can be hard to keep up. Yes, some are certainly gimmicks, but others are actually worth it with sophisticated Instagram videos and stunning before-and-afters that are impossible to deny.
Pimples. We all deal with them. Whether it is full on acne, one spot, or a cluster of pimples, they have a life of their own. They pop up overnight, but seem to take ages to bid us adieu. So what’s happening when a pimple rears its ugly head, becomes inflamed, dries out, and scars? Let’s run the hardship of having a breakout, and what’s actually happening underneath our skin.
A few months ago, we published an article on Hair Growth Inhibitors, and it was so well received that we decided to dive a bit deeper and tell you everything you need to know. Hair growth is an issue we all struggle with, whether you remove your hair or not, dealing with is a hassle.
Sadly summer is heading into its final weeks and that means fall and winter beauty collections are on the rise, so there is even more to buy than usual. There are about 10 new foundations on the market, fun beauty tools, and even unique and affordable skincare releases. It is all so glamorous and more importantly, intriguing. Personally, I want it all. But as a girl on a budget, I must stick to a list.
We all love to test the waters and spend time in front of the mirror getting dolled up, but sometimes that go-to look is just you. It is when you feel the most you, and that is a great feeling to have. Here are some looks and how can you achieve them in a few simple steps!
With sheet masks being the latest trend, it seems the almighty clay masks have taken a back seat in the beauty and skincare realms lately. Perhaps it is just me, but it seems the latest masks are all about brightness and being glowy. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love a glow, but acne still exists and millions of people suffer with it every single day. I know because I’ve been there
New products, exclusive releases, and brand launches — It is all happening now. And it is actually becoming hard work to keep up with all the new beauty coming out. There are new palettes, new lip products, and complete ranges to check out. So what is on the hot list right now?
Kat Von D is well-known for her unique style, her outspokenness, and of course, her cruelty-free beauty line. For years now, her makeup line has been celebrated for its full-coverage and long-wearing nature. It is also in the works that she plans to make her entire line vegan. And although the brand has been criticized for their lack of deeper shades and high prices tags, it has done very well in the vegan and cruelty-free marketplace. That is until recently.
If you keep-up-to date with the beauty world, I am sure you could name at least 5 warm nude palettes that launched in the last year or two. You may even have a few. And there is nothing wrong with brands putting out palettes that people want, even if they are similar. Having a choice of price range and brand is great when shopping for your go-to palette, but where does the trend stop and creativity begin?
It seems like there is a new foundation release every day. And with so many brands trying to compete with the likes of Fenty and MAKE UP FOR EVER, it is a competitive space.

Preventative aging is one of those things you hear about in magazines, and just sort of roll your eyes at. If you don’t have wrinkles or visible signs of aging, why should you spend money on it? It sounds like a money-making opportunity that brands created to sell you something you don’t need. But is that really true?
When you walk through the beauty aisle, you may not think much of how the products you purchase everyday might differ in another country. I mean why would you? Different packaging and products that are sold across the world don’t affect you, do they? Well, they could.
