The days of sleek, super-straight hair are out, and natural hair is in. So go ahead and Free Your Mane. The red carpet is full of your favorite celebs unleashing their naturally curly and wavy tresses. But here’s the caveat: While wild and natural is in, the f-word (frizz) is still a big no-no.
Naturally curly and wavy locks can seem like a nightmare to maintain because they are generally drier and more fragile than “normal” hair types. To help control the frizz and flyaways, you need to give your hair what it craves – moisture. Free Your Mane pomade delivers the moisture your tresses desire as well as the hold you seek. Plus, it’s perfect for smoothing down those unruly little hairs that always seem to escape your do.
To use Free Your Mane Conditioning Pomade, rub a small amount of the product between the palms of your hands so it melts. Then smooth the pomade throughout your locks. If your hair is short, a bit of pomade is all you need to define your style and keep your mane under control. If your locks are longer, apply your regular styling product first – such as mousse or gel – and use Free Your Mane as a finishing product to help hold your style and keep it frizz-free, smooth and under control.
For the best results, avoid using shampoo products that contain hair-drying sulfates. Use conditioner every time you wash your hair, and treat your locks biweekly with a deep-moisturizing product. Always keep a bottle of Free Your Mane pomade in your beauty arsenal because when you show your locks some love, they will love you back.
In the fragrance world, looks are as important as scents. In 1981, Jacomo won a Fifi Award for the “Best Packaging of the Year by a Fragrance,” and the company is crossing its fingers for another win this year with the newest “It’s Me” collection.
The latest fragrances from Jacomo, It’s Me for Her and It’s Me for Him, break the rules of perfume bottle design. Instead of encasing the fragrances in heavy, thick bottles, the packaging is instead an homage to the pure lines and high-tech designs of the latest smartphones. The bottles are svelte, fit perfectly into a pocket and include an integrated pump. The scents and bottle design capture the happenings of today’s modern world, as cell phones seem to forever follow their owners.
In the world of tanning creams and lotions, the latest is the St. Tropez spray tan in the form of a mousse. There are two types of mousse products from this line to give you a perfect, natural glow – the Everyday Gradual Tan Mousse and the Self Tan Bronzing Mousse. The foam is so simple to use that the hottest celebrities (like Penelope Cruz and Kim Kardashian) wear it before hitting the red carpet. The price is so affordable you don’t have to get a second job just to nab a bottle for yourself.
To get your own celebrity-like tan, take a shower in the evening and exfoliate your skin. Don’t forget about your knees, elbows, feet and ankles because the skin in those areas is particularly rough. When you’re completely dry, pull up your hair. (If you have light-colored hair, dab some moisturizer along your eyebrows and hairline.)
