Somewhere along the way, we all collectively decided that we must talk to the hairstylist when they're cutting our hair. I typically am a social person, but socializing with our hair stylists is particularly stressful — we're seated in one place, there's nowhere to go, and you're going to be there for awhile. And if your stylist is on the quieter side? Forget about it. Having to create that much conversation leaves me absolutely exhausted after a session.
Men, on the other hand, are utterly silent when they go to their barbers. Why is it that we have to gab? Can we just disconnect for once?
Ok, so I can't vouch that sheet masks actually do anything (my skin looks the same after!!) but I'm obsessed with them. I just bought Sweet Chef's Ginger + Vit C mask, and LAPCOS Firming Collagen Mask (helloooo elder millennial skin!) The Nutrogena Go to Product: Hydro Boost Hydrating 100% Hydrogel Mask is one of my favorites too.
Do you actually see results with face masks? Which are your go-to's?
I just recently and finally got over a traumatic haircut experience, which makes me really want to hear some other stories. I'll share mine too. I grew my hair out crazy long during the pandemic, like down to my waist. It was the longest it has ever been. I have also never gotten my hair "done" before. Of course, the occasional cut, but I have never gotten my hair styled AND colored before. We are talking total virgin hair. I was so excited to get it done! Because my hair was so long, I was also donating it for the first time too. Well, idk what happened. My hairdresser never measured anything and instead of cutting off the 10 inches we agreed on, they chopped off a whole ponytail measuring 20 inches. I died to say the least. The way it was cut was so choppy, unmeasured and did not make any sense at all. I walked through my front door (sobbing) and all my mom could say was that she was sorry. Not even an "oh, it's really not THAT bad!" I'm telling you my luscious locks were butchered so badly, the next salon I went to in order to fix it said it was the worst they have ever seen. Nearly seven months later, my hair is finally back a length I am happy with and at least is super healthy!
I have a confession. I have no idea what concealer is for. How is it different than foundation? I have seen people use it in exactly the same way as foundation which adds to my confusion.
What is the point? Or is it just a scheme by big beauty to get me to buy more makeup?
I love Hailey Bieber and recently saw her do a GRWM while tagging along on JB’s tour and was surprised with how effortless her makeup routine was. She looked stunning and used so little!
One thing that stood out to me was her mention of using a tanning spray, and I’m curious if anyone else has every used it or something similar because I think I wanna try it.
Per her video, she uses this: https://www.sephora.com/product/the-water-hydrating-self-tan-water-P424985
Tan Luxe Water Self Tan Spray. Anyone have any luck with this or a product similar to it? I feel like this summer is begging for a simple makeup routine and hoping this can be the start of it! (Also tip: the same product she uses is on sale at Ulta now!)
I have seen this ALL over IG:
The whole pony-on-top-of-a-pony to add volume.
I’ve tried it, and, friends, it looks INSANE. Am I doing it wrong? Has this worked for anyone? And if not… why are they trying to force this on us?
I'm working on two years of at-home haircuts. Sometimes I'd make my sister do it when she was in town, sometimes I'd just take some sheers to my ends and do it myself.
My hair is curly, but I often straighten it when I need to guarantee that I look presentable.
I'm wondering, when straightened, if people can tell that my haircut is sh*t.
Then I wondered, do people really notice these things?
So, do you notice nice cuts?? What stands out to you?
I've never been a huge makeup wearer, but I find myself wanting to get back into wearing SOME makeup now that we're not wearing masks 24/7. I feel like my skills are worse now than they were two years ago (and that's not saying much...) However the other weekend when I was digging through my makeup bag I came across my LOC Liquid Eye Shadow and remembered how much I love it, because it's impossible to mess up and goes on so easy. Another favorite is the Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain, it's subtle, smells good, and doesn't smudge if you do have to put a mask on briefly. There have to be more items like this! What's your favorite fool proof product?

This is a very personal question because i feel like NO ONE has the same answer. But I have to know, how often do you wash your hair? I know popes that say twice a week, every day, every other?
Personally, I’m an every other day. I have very fine hair but a lot of it so it gets oily sooo fast and always has.
And what products do you use to prolong your washes hair so it doesn’t look like a slimy little grease ball?
