The Evolution of Shaving

Shaving facial hair is something that men have been doing for thousands of years, cave drawings have shown men to be clean shaven, women started shaving their bodily hair much later. In ancient times men would scrape away their facial hair using stone, flint or shells.



In the last couple of centuries the cut throat razor was developed and it is still used by some barbers, using  the cut throat takes a lot of skill. The cut throat razor  is a dangerous utensil and serious in can occur if it is  not wielded properly. Shaving accidents are usually  caused insufficient preparation of the skin and hair   before the commencement of shaving, dull or dirty razor blades.

 It is estimated that 90% of men shave daily and that  most men spend 5 months of their life in front of the  bathroom mirror. This daily chore and the injuries it  can cause have led to the evolution of shaving  products and equipment.


The Safety Razor
Before the invention of the safety razor many men would have to visit a barber or get someone else to shave them, a cut throat razor is not particularly easy to use on ones self. The safety razor saved a lot of palaver, this life changing utensil was first patented by Fredrik and Otto Kampfein 1880 you can learn more its history on wikipedia. Early safety razors would have had just one blade, today we have multiple blades, disposable razors and all sorts.

The problem with wet shaving is it still requires a bit of work and entails a little jeopardy, electric shavers are extremely common with men looking to avoid this work and jeopardy. It is estimated that around 25% of men use electric shavers.

The Electric Shaver
The first electric shaver came onto the market in the late 1920's, it was invented by a man called Jacob Schick and it cost $25. The electric shaver has evolved in all kinds of ways much more than the safety razor has, there is only so much that can be done with a handle and a blade I suppose.

Flexible Shaving Heads
Among the cons electric shavers had was that wet shaves were always closer. This explains why all major companies started to bring flexible heads in the early 1990s. The main idea here was to acquire the flexibility necessary to get closer to one’s face.

Battery Life Added
Visual indicators were first seen in the 90s. These would display the battery’s charging status. The electric razors would last as the battery did. As the battery faded, the blades would progressively weaken. However, razors today can deliver full functionality, even as the battery fades until it completely dies. This ensures consistent charge throughout the battery’s life cycle.

Waterproof Razors
Upon entry into the new millennium, electric razors evolved to become waterproof. You’d be good to go if you wanted to clean your unit’s head under running water or if you wished to take it with you into the shower.

Self-Cleaning Systems
In 2001, Braun changes the game by introducing the first self-cleaning electric razor. Users would now face-down the shaver’s base, not only to charge, but also clean it.

Braun Series 9
Recently, Braun released the Braun Series 9. This includes 4 specially designed cutting elements: the direct and cut trimmer (used on long, multi-directional hairs), the hyper-lift and cut trimmer (used on flat hairs) and two Opti-foil elements that finish up the close shave. It’s the most efficient and fastest electric shaver in the world.

The Evolution Continues
The shaving game has become unexpectedly competitive. The technology is advancing at a surprisingly rapid pace. We believe there are good reasons why electric shavers that were invented long ago and are still used. What’s next? That’s only for us to guess.

Natural Hair Feature: Bianta


Tell me about you, a short bio
About myself? Well, I go by the name of Bianta. I am a young St. Maartener born and raised. I have an interest for trying out new things.

How long have you been natural?
I have currently returned to the natural lifestyle late November 2016.

Have you ever had relaxer? Why did you decide to go back natural?
I have been relaxed twice. When I entered high school and for the next time in September 2015. I never really decided the first time I went natural in 2013. I just had a two-sided Mohawk totally undecided and I did not add in any cream until mid to late 2015. I found the natural hair way too coarse to handle so I texturized it (biggest regret ever). My hair started breaking and my ends became damaged, so my hair stylist Ms. Rachelle of Addicted Hair Lounge did a great job chopping it all off and giving me a permed pixie cut which I loved. I went back to the creamy crack one time after and had not returned since. My hair was getting back all natural during the course of 2016 and right before my birthday in late November of 2016 I was surprised by my boss and two office colleagues and dropped off at the Addicted Hair Lounge for a natural big chop by Ms. Rachelle again. This decision was planned in advance but not decided for the given moment it happened up until it was time to really make a decision on the salon chair and I just went for it.

Did you go through the transitioning process or big chop?
In 2013, I went through the transitioning process with the middle piece of my hair that was not shaved. And up till now I am still dealing with the big chop from late 2016.

What is your hair regimen like? How often do you wash your hair?
I co-wash my hair once a week, sometimes twice with just Head and Shoulder or Garnier Fructis conditioner. I use Dady gel and Raw Castor Oil as leave-in conditioner for nice shine and hair strength provider.

What are some of your staple product? Which brand (Cantu, Shea Moisture, AS I AM etc.) is your fave?
I've used Cantu, Shea Moisture of the Peach Colored Bottles, Olive Oil, Care Free Curl and One Bottle 6 n 1. They all work magically in their own way when needed.

Do you use heat on your hair?
Currently, I do not use any form of heat on my hair but I have used it before in the pass and it caused my natural hair to be damaged.

How do you feel about dying your natural hair?
I feel no way about hair dying. I currently have a dye in my hair that is quite washed out but has done no damage to my hair, so far.

Have you ever considered going back to the creamy crack?
For right now, no I have not been thinking on it.

Do you think that your natural hair gives you an extra flair?
My natural hair is currently short and it is just short to me with no extra flair. I just find it easier to deal with while at this current length.

Does it add to your personal style?
No it does not add to my personal style. I find it hard work around.

What are some of your go to styles?
My go to style is wash and go.

Do you have a length goal?
I do have a hair length goal. I would like my hair to grow up until my shoulders or so about 12-16 inches within due time not necessarily right away.

Anything else you would like to share with us.
Natural is for anyone that's willing to maintain their hair either by themselves or with the help of another. Natural hair does not prevent you from doing protective hairstyles.

How long have you been natural?
I have been natural for 2 years and 4 days today.

Have you ever had relaxer? Why did you decide to go back natural?
Yes I had relaxer back when I was living in Holland in 2014 and when I came returned to St. Maarten my hair was a disaster; it was severely damaged, so I decided to go back natural.

Did you go through the transitioning process or big chop?
I did the big chop off the bat.

What is your hair regimen like? How often do you wash your hair?
My hair regimen hmmm... I have 1 spray bottle that I mix a few things and spray my hair whenever I feel like mostly. I wash it every 1 to 2 weeks.

What are some of your staple products? Which brand (Cantu, Shea Moisture, AS I AM etc.) is your fave?
I use Cantu leave-in conditioner and shampoo, Treseme conditioner, castor oil, coconut oil, jojoba, tea tree and extra virgin olive oils in my nest.

Do you use heat on your hair?
No I do not use heat. I really try my best not to go that route.

How do you feel about dying your natural hair?
I want to dye my hair but honestly I am scared, so I probably won't.


Have you ever considered going back to the creamy crack?
Hell no! I did not chop it off just to go back lol, and I can just easily get a wig if I want to wear my hair straight.

Do you think that your natural hair gives you an extra flair?
Um no, I don't think it gives me an extra flair.

Does it add to your personal style?
Right now I don't think it adds to my personal style, I don't really do much with it.

What are some of your go to styles?
My go to styles are simple such as wearing a high puff, single strand twists and twist outs.

Do you have a length goal?
I don't necessarily have a length goal. I just want it to be bigger lol.

Easy Hair Tricks for Working Women


Among the many struggles of being a woman, one major issue is the hair. This statement is not a joke and almost every girl will agree to it. On top of that, when you’re a working woman, there is a lot more to face than just messy hair.

Now as it is clear that no one wants to show up at the workplace with a bird’s nest on their head, and since we cannot wash our hair every single day, we need better alternatives to these issues.
Here are a few things you need to do to make everyday a good hair day:

·        Embrace Your Messy Hair:

This might sound like a typical tip but the way you treat your hair in the morning has a lot of impact on how it will look throughout the day. The best solution for this problem is a leave-in conditioner by a reputable brand, for instance, L’Oreal Professionnel’s Styling Spray Beach Waves Wild Stylers. It is simply the exceptional choice as you would be embracing the messy curls that you got while sleeping. Nothing looks as good as a messy yet textured hairstyle. You can even use some bobby pins to hold down your hair from the front.

·        No Dye? No Problem:

We know how hard it can be to cope up with the latest fashion trends when you are doing a 9 to 5 shift. You might find it to be an excruciating task to dye your hair during the weekends. Gone are the days when you had to dye your roots every time new hair started to grow. With the help of the Root Touch Up from L’Oreal Professionel, you can easily cover up un-colored roots to maintain your look. It leaves the hair soft and smooth and provides it with the nourishment that it needs and deserves.



·        Get Rid of After-Shower Frizz:

At times, you find the time take shower before heading off to work, but what happens when you don’t blow-dry your hair? It is a growing problem which cannot be treated with the help of a scarf, especially when you have to rush. The issue here with the rising humid or the wind, and the answer to it is quite simple and it won’t even take much of your time. L’Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil Milk, which is an incredible oil that can be applied before or, preferably, after you shower. This magical product not only saves you from the frizzy hair nightmare, but it also protects you from the daily hair damage done by the blow-dryer.

Hair problems are undeniably a nightmare for everyone. With the right care, attention, and products, you can control the damage. However, it is your duty to ensure whether if the brand is trustworthy or not, so as to maintain the health and condition of the hair and scalp.

Generally speaking, the brand you choose for your hair and skin have a huge impact on the overall growth. In addition to that, make sure to adopt a healthy lifestyle by taking a proper diet.

Secrets Your Hairdresser Could Have Told You


It's fun trying out new hairstyles, colors and every type of curl that is possible with permanent waving, but how can you keep it looking as good as when you left the hairdresser's?

Often you have saved for weeks for that new hairstyle that could give you a radiant new image. You go to the hairdresser's expecting to get your money's worth, but it doesn't turn out that way. Your euphoria is short-lived when that stunning new colour seems to fade or disappear after a few weeks, or that voluptuous new cut and body wave droops and falls into an uncontrollable mess.

There are many reasons why this can happen and one of them is the lack of proper discussion between you and your hairdresser. Discussion is an important first step towards getting good results with your hair. Many incredibly simple routines and hints are second nature to a hairdresser. They are things she could have told you but didn't.

Something as simple as brushing your hair, for instance. How often should you do it? Which hairstyles are safe to brush without ruining them? Is it damaging to brush wet hair? These are just a few of the things people are unsure of.

In general, brushing is good for hair. It distributes the natural oil, called sebum, along the entire length of the hair strand; it helps to remove the dead skin cells which often accumulate in masses causing dandruff; it stimulates the circulation of blood, therefore promoting healthy growth; and it helps to remove dirt gathered from the air.

Always use a brush with natural hair bristles which are made of the same protein as your hair. When you feel that pleasant tingling sensation all over your head while you're brushing then you know you're doing it properly. Do it every day without fail.

PUTTING LIFE INTO YOUR HAIR

You should not brush hair when it is wet; it can be stretched more easily, and by the time you eliminate all those knots, you have most likely excessively damaged it. You should use a wide toothed comb instead.

This brings us to shampoos and conditioners. A good shampoo is a fairly acidic one. You can test it on nitrazine paper; the paper should remain gold in colour. This is the same reading as for hair, and such shampoos cannot be damaging.

Shampoo should contain protein which controls the moisture level of hair, therefore increasing its sheen and its manageability. It is essential to use a shampoo that can be easily rinsed, to prevent scalp and hair dryness. By the way, an abundance of lather does not necessarily indicate a good shampoo. A good one should make your hair feel silky soft and manageable.

After shampooing, it is important to use the right conditioning rinse. Conditioners for damaged and dry hair add protein; moisture, which takes up a great percentage of the hair structure; and certain oils which seal in the moisture, making hair soft.

It is also important that the rinse is quite acidic in order to firm and tighten the hair to prevent loss of moisture, rather like the effect of a toner or astringent on your skin. Conditioners for normal to oily hair should have the same properties except for the oil which is readily produced by the skin glands.

Lemon juice or vinegar make two incredibly effective rinses which can be used with the creamier rinses; both are very acidic. Just make sure you rinse them out thoroughly with water. These rinses will pick up the natural highlights in blondes and brunettes respectively. They will also add brilliant sheen and will certainly make hair easier to comb.

Internal factors play a very important role in the health of your hair, too. We are all born with a certain amount of hair and that amount will never increase. Hair grows at a rate of approximately 1 cm a month, sometimes faster, sometimes slower, depending on certain factors. It will grow faster in summer than in winter, for example.

Excessive worry, emotional tension and mental strain over long periods of time will slow down and inhibit growth as well as affect hair health.

Poor diet will also affect hair. Unfortunately, the natural ageing process slows down hair growth as well and leads to more fragile hair structure. So please don't blame your hairdresser for not being able to keep your hair as bouncy as it was 30 or 40 years ago - it is impossible.

However, your lovely locks are not doomed completely. There are several things that you and your hairdresser can do. Try to select a style that can be easily managed by you. This will allow you to carry out home treatments in between salon services. Regular brushing is an integral part of this treatment, with a good brush, of course.

A good, balanced diet containing dairy products, eggs, wheat germ and lecithin is important. This will provide internal nourishment which will be carried via the bloodstream to your hair.

Have a regular scalp massage. If you can't have this service regularly, then at least try it yourself. Once you know what it is all about, you can massage your scalp every time you shampoo and condition your hair.
Remember to always start from the back of your neck and work forward, following the direction of the blood supply to your scalp.

Some benefits that can be obtained from regular massage:

       Nerves and muscles are loosened and relaxed.
       It hastens blood circulation to the neck, scalp and forehead, carrying nourishment to the hair.
       It effectively helps natural shedding of skin cells to allow skin to breathe and function properly, therefore reducing dandruff problems.
       It relieves tension, and consequently headaches.

LOOKING AFTER YOUR PERM

Now, about that perm that didn't last - you could have been spared the heartbreak if only you'd been told how to look after it. As your hair grows, the weight of it also increases and this heaviness will make your curls drop, consequently you think your perm is falling out, and it probably is.

A light trim will remove the excess weight and allow your curls to bounce back; your style will regain its shape. It only needs to be a cut of 1 cm to remove the ends of your hair which are the driest because they have been around the longest and therefore suffered more damage.

The trim will remove split ends and knotting which put an additional strain on your curls every time you comb them. Just remind your hairdresser that it is the first or second trim you have had since your perm.

Blow-waving should be done carefully with cool air. Hold your dryer at least 14 cm away from the hair. Don't use heated rollers more than three times a week, and don't use curling wands every day. Don't sleep with ordinary rollers, bobby pins or twists. All these will damage your hair.

Wash-and-wear perms are not usually styles you can wash under a tap, shake dry and race off to go about your business. Shampoo and condition it carefully, towel dry well and comb it into shape with a wide-toothed comb; allow it to dry without further disturbances. If you don't shampoo every day, spray a little water on the surface in the morning to rejuvenate the curl.

Perms that aren't wash-and-wear keep longer if you avoid steam. Use a tight fitting shower cap and leave a window or door open, at least until the hot water has finished running. If you have an exhaust fan, turn it on.

Damp, wintry or humid summer weather will do the same damage to your perm. Wear a scarf if possible. A little setting lotion or a light mist of hairspray will form a temporary protective coating to help seal off dampness.

Before a perm, it is important to tell your hairdresser what you've done to your hair in the way of home treatments or previous salon treatments, or whether you are on medication. It makes a big difference. You could also mention the size of rollers you have at home so your hairdresser will know what curl to give you.

MAKING THE MOST OF COLOR

Whether it's a semi-permanent rinse or a permanent colour, there is always the problem that it doesn't last as long as you were told it would. Once again, it's after-care that keeps colour in.

If you're out in the sun or wind, wear a hat or scarf. Anything that dries your hair will cause a faster loss of colour. Remember, too, that the more often you shampoo, the less your colour will stay. A colour designed to last six shampoos will be out in a week if you shampoo every day but will last six weeks if you only shampoo once a week.

Other factors alter the natural colour of hair. If you smoke and you have a complete head of snow-white hair, you've probably noticed it tends to get yellowish, especially around the front. This cannot be shampooed out, but with the right rinse it can be toned down without affecting the remainder of your hair.

There are clear advantages in giving hair a colour rinse - dull hair can become silky-looking and radiate shine, hair with no body can gain bounce. If you're still skeptical, try it. Remember to explain carefully what you expect the colouring to do, so your hairdresser can make the correct selection.

Now that you know the secrets on achieving perfect hair forever, you should get excellent results.

10 Eye Makeup Tips and Tricks


Okay, here’s the deal. Makeup can make you look great and feel beautiful. But the million dollar question is how do you get that perfect makeup that will make your eyes pop?

There are things you can do to ensure that your makeup lasts all day long and gives you that perfect look. I'm going to share with you 10 essential eye makeup tips and tricks that I use and teach my students.

I hope to give you some inspiration and a little bit more creativity. I assure you that these tips will help on a day-to-day basis with your eyes and eyebrows.

1.       How to Lift and Define Your Eyebrow
You need to try this priceless trick if you want to define and lift your eyebrows as well as open up your eyes. You will need some concealers and a concealer brush that has a good precision and is also waterproofed. 

Starting on top of your eyebrows, make sure your face is relaxed. Then, look straight into the mirror and line the concealer around your eyebrow. Make sure to follow the line of your natural brow shape. Before you blend the makeup on top of your eyebrow, take a little more concealer and do the same thing on the bottom portion of your eyebrow.

Make sure you connect the concealer on the very end. Take the same brush, wipe off the access, then go back in and just blend the concealer out. On the bottom part, you will need to do very gentle, tiny strokes going down.

To set the concealer, take the same brush and some powder. Then, pat it on top of the concealer to make sure it stays full all day long.

2.       How to Make Your Eyes Appear Bigger?
OK, I am sure you guys have heard this joke before but I am still going to ask you. Which body parts grow ten times its size when stimulated? Think about this. Wait! It’s your pupils!

This trick is for those that like their eyes bigger. It suits most of the skin tones. Don’t worry; it’s quite simple. All you need is a white eye pencil or a nude eye pencil.

Starting with a white pencil, apply it straight onto your waterline. Doing this will instantly make your eyes looking larger. You can also try the nude eye pencil which is not as noticeable as the white pencil. Voila!

3.    Tape to Help Guide Eyeliner or Eyes Shadow
This next trick is going to help you to guide your eyeliner, or even help you guide the process of blending your eyeshadows. For this, all you need is some scotch tape.

Place the tape right underneath your lower lash line and align it with your eyebrow. This is going to end right below the eyebrow. When putting on the eye shadow, I usually start by using one or two darker shades.

Next, I blend it with my fluffy brush using the tape as my guide. After this, you need to start drawing a line right on top of the tape. With this, you get to see how great the tape is as a template to help guide your eyeliner and eye shadow. Remove the tape and you’re done!

4.       Ultimate Tape Method
This method is a little bit trickier. You are going to apply a tape like you did before. Then you are going to layer another piece of tape on top of your eyelid to create a triangle on the outer corner of your eye.

This is going to be your winged liner. Fill between the two pieces of tape and remove them. After that, you need to go back into the middle and the inner corner of your eye to fill in any gaps between the tapes. And that will be your winged liner.

5.       Join the Dots
This eye makeup tip is a popular method called Join the Dots. All you do is draw a few dots on top of your lash line. Keep them as close to your lash line as possible but make sure you can still see them.

Go all the way out to where you want your wing to be. Then all you need to do is get your eyeliner, join the dots, and you are ready to go.


6.       How to Make Your Eyes Appear Brighter, Wider and More Awake
Do you want someone to see you as the light of their life? If yes, then try this trick. You will need a bright eye shadow and a brush. Apply the makeup in the inner corner of your eyes and little bit to the side. Next step is to take the same brush with the same eye shadow and use it in the middle of your eyelid.

Then you can start blending it a little bit.  The last step of becoming someone’s light of their life is to take the same brush and eyeshadow and highlight the brow bone.

7.       How to Make Your Eyeliner Sharp and Bright
You will need a concealer and a tiny little precision or concealer brush. Firstly, line your eyeliner, then take the concealer brush with the concealer on and start applying it to the outer corner of your eyes.

Use your finger to blend out the excess. Once the concealer is blended, take some translucent loose powder on the same brush. Using the brush set the concealer in place. Doing this will make your eyeliner look so sharp and bright.

8.       How to coat the lower lash line with mascara without the cleanup
This eye makeup tip is a simple trick that will make your life a little bit easier. All you need is a card, old business card works great, or you can use the tape method as well. But I prefer the card because I can hold it to where I need it to be.

 You will need to place it underneath your eyelashes and start applying the mascara. This little card trick is great because:
• It spreads the mascara evenly and makes it less clunky
• You don’t have to do a lot of cleanups afterward

9.       How to Fix Uneven Eyeliner
Another eye makeup tip you’d want to learn about is how to fix uneven eyeliner. Let’s say you are drawing your eyeliner on your top lash line, and one side is thicker, or it’s messier than the other side. And you just don’t have the time to go back, rinse it and restart the whole process again.
All you need is a metallic darker eyeshadow. I like the gray shade, but you can also use the brown shade as well. Don’t go for black, but stick to either brown or gray.

So, what you need to do is to take some eyeshadow using a tiny smudge brush and start from the outer corner of your eye smudging the eyeliner. This eye makeup trick creates a softer smoky look to the eyeliner.

10.    How to Get the Most Color Payoff and Vibrancy from the Eye Shadow
When you are doing your eyes, the question is how do you get the best from that particular eye shadow?

The trick is primer! Don’t just use any old shadow primer. Go for a white eye pencil primer. Take the white eye pencil and apply it wherever you’re going to place the eye shadow. Get your ring finger and just slightly blend out the edges. Apply eyeshadow on it, and you will see the colors pop!

When it comes to having a perfect eye makeup, you have to be creative and keep an eye out for new beauty tips and tricks. So, what can you take away from this detailed guide on having the perfect makeup for your eyes? I hope some of these were able to inspire you to do your makeup a little different!
