If you happen to read my blog on the regular, you may have noticed that my hair has undergone a transformation and gone through different kind of great products to achieve the best results.
This time my hairdresser took my warm honey-brown main mane and to a much lighter, cooler shade, and… I absolutely love it!
I'm very excited about my color because every time it goes through a treatment I get closer to the color I've been waiting to achieve for months,
Every salon visit at Tropicos is an adventurous and experimental time where I know that when I step out, my color and haircut will always look amazing!

Yet, and I am sure you will agree if you ever when went a few shades lighter, cooler shade requires maintenance and regular/frequent salon visits, otherwise it can turn brassy in a drop of a pin.
So, as much as I was willing to commit to frequent salon visits to maintain this color, my busy schedule with studies would often get in way, and by week 3, my color would start looking dull, lackluster and brassy.
Well, I really enjoy trying out new and innovative products that help my hair get a stronger and healthy look.

I have been using Shu Uemura for around 3 months now, and these products are designed specifically to revive color, neutralize unwanted tones, and add subtle deposits of color to prolong results between salon visits, and I absolutely LOVE IT! Aside from the fact that it makes my hair shiny and healthy, my color looks much more brilliant and vibrant for longer, in fact, I am actually able to go to my colorist less frequently, which works rather nicely since my studies are time-consuming.

Voila, perfect  healthy hair

If you have been in my blogging journey long enough you might know I used to have really long hair until the beginning of last year.
I recently chopped several inches off of my hair. And it came to my thought that I get asked often how I decided to cut my hair this short after having my long hair for so many years.

I’ve got to say, I love my short hair! And maybe some of you want to cut your hair too but are nervous about making the chop.

Can you take it slow?

When I told my hairstylist that I wanted really short hair, he literally refused to cut it.
Instead, he suggested I cut a little bit by little each time I visited him while I get used to playing with my new texture and length before really going for it. He cut my hair five weeks in a row, taking it from long hair to a lob and then to a true bob.
If you think you want a bob, I definitely recommend trying a lob first and seeing how you like it. It really does make the transition a lot easier and also gives you a chance to change your mind.

Are you prepared for high maintenance?

It’s a big misconception that shorter hair is easier to care for. Well, you might save a little time shampooing and conditioning.
But it takes more time to style short hair, and you will also have to get more frequent trims
(every 4-6 weeks) to maintain your shortcut.
Now that my hair is short, my go-to ponytail is no longer an option and I have to actually style it every single day.

If you answered yes to all three questions, then you are ready for a short haircut!

I know it seems silly to put so much thought into getting a haircut, but as anyone who has ever had a bad haircut knows, it’s best to really be sure about these things!

Are you considering cutting your hair?

I hope my advice helped!

2018 is all about bold and radiant colors; also valentine's day is just around the corner!
I decided to create a colorful makeup look for you with the newest collection of Lancôme, the Macaroon collection.

1. Since I'll be contouring my face, I prefer to use a less covering foundation.
If you need to cover up more or you might have this look as a night-out look, you should go for a foundation with more coverage.
Using Miracle Cushion- Color 03

2. Using a dark & light concealer color.
Apply the light color to highlight & cover up unwanted dark spots & The dark color to create dimension on your face.
Carefully start blending the darkest color and then the lighter one.
Using Urban Decay naked skin weightless concealer -Dark Neutral & Light warm

1.To create a "wet" look, start with a liquid blush or a little bit of foundation.
Using your finger or a brush, apply the product all over your eyelid.
2. Using the palette Les Toppings, apply the pinkest color where you applied the liquid blush and on top of it, apply the purple color to achieve the desired look.
3. Apply eyeliner.

4. Using your favorite bronzer, Create a 3! Starting from your forehead, down to the cheekbones ending on the jaw.
Using Nars Casino - Color Medium.

5. Apply a pink blush! Here I'm using the Macaroon blush which leaves a natural & glowy look.

6. Apply a light pink color 🌟 Since I didn't have one, I used the cushion blush in color splash Corail.

During the winter time, our skin and hair tends to get really dry and in need of extra care.
My skin during the winter time craves after more care and less makeup; that's why I decided to create this quick and easy tutorial you also can use for a quick and sweet makeup look.

1. I start with a moisturizing creme.
Currently, I have been using a lot of Korean beauty products since my skin reacts really good to them.
Here I'm using Klairs Soothing Cream which provides a long-term moisture to dry, irritated and sensitive skin.

2. After letting the moisturizer soak into the skin, I use a bronzer to give life back into my face since we tend to lose our tan color during winter.
Here I'm using life is a Cruise Sunrise bronzing palette from Giorgio Armani Which is a really easy & blendable powder to use.

3. To set the look and hold the hairs of your eyebrows in place, comb through your brows with a colored gel.
Here I'm using the styler brow gel from Lancôme, the applicator allows me to precise the application and a natural look.

4. Optional- If you are like me and like to have a little extra color. Apply a cream blush on your cheeks and lips to achieve a sweet look.
I'm using the cushion blush from Lancôme which suitable for this natural look.




DONE!

Today I wanted to share this look with you from last week when the weather in Oslo was sunny and more fall-like.

 

During the fall and winter, a good multifaceted coat becomes a mandatory part of my wardrobe.
Having the right outerwear that is easy to style in a different kind of weather but is also able to keep me warm when the wind picks up or it starts to rain, is hard to come by.
I think that a good dark blue coat is a perfect choice for these unpredictable weather patterns because the color is neutral, fit for early spring, and isn’t too heavy to carry around.
Who doesn’t want a jacket that is multi-seasonal and versatile? If it gets too cold, just layer it up! Too warm? Wear with skirts and t-shirts!

There is an effortless classy sophistication about this coat from Sandro Paris and it can enhance anything from the classic staples (like a t-shirt and jeans) to an evening dress. The simplicity of the design makes it so that there is never an occasion that you couldn’t wear it.

S.O.S - Please save my Hair...

 

- It's not a secret that I had put my hair through quite a bit of abuse these past few months after all the bleaching, in fact, I put my hair through so much abuse, by the end of October my hair was looking dry, brittle and extremely brassy.
Around 3 weeks ago, I realized I could no longer go in public with my hair looking the way it did, so I turned to the professionals at Tropicos Salon.

Aside from getting an amazing shorter bob than I have ever had before, and a fresh color treatment. Kim is the person responsible for the amazing job done with my hair.
He put a colder toner to get rid of the yellow tones and put more dimension into my hair.

The biggest challenge is definitely the constant exposure to the cold weather that dries my skin & hair badly. Though I try to cover up my hair whenever I can, I simply cannot avoid the damaging harsh cold Weather in Norway.
Another challenge is styling- I curl or straighten my hair every day, no exceptions. So, unless I use the right hair care products, heating tools slowly but securely damage my hair, and leave it looking dry, frizzy, brittle and completely lackluster!
Kim went ahead and customized a line of products I could use at home to protect and keep my hair healthy until next Salon treatment.

Starting with the Shampoo; I've been using Shue Uemura Color Lustre- Musk Rose Oil that contains also goji berry extract. Cleaning up the hair and all the residues of styling products from the scalp.

After the Shampoo, I towel-dry my hair and apply Fusio Dose from Kerastase that is exclusive picked up by my hairdresser.
The Homelab is customized to the needs of the hair has (Nutrition/Reparation) to achieve the best results.
All of the boosters have different concentrated formulas with active ingredients to instantly transform the hair.

- Separate the hair into different sections.
-Apply the product & massage the head.
I let the formula on my hair for around 5 minutes
but if you are in a hurry you can just leave it for 1 minute.

I have to say that the results have been absolutely amazing! Seeing an enormous difference that the right products made in the way my hair looks and feels have been a completely transformative experience!
My hair is much more alive, shiny, manageable and easier to style!
A Big Thank YOU to Kim for always saving my hair.
