Spring clean your beauty

Time for a spring clean? Not your home, your look.

As we shake off the winter months it’s time to experiment with new styles from bang on trend nail shades to a fresh hairstyle. Reinvention and makeover is what modern women are best at.

Yet before we start to add new colours and new shades we have to make sure the canvas is ready.

After harsh winter weather our skin and hair can need a little looking after.

Here are our tips to make you feel like a new you, just in time for spring

Before you add colour or experiment with a new shade, make sure nails are strong. Weak and brittle and putting colour on top might make them liable to crack and break. Use a hand moisturiser to rub into nails and gently shape the cuticles. When you file nails, give a curved shape to them. Only file in one direction to prevent cracking. Blow away any dust left from filing and then use either a little strengthening oil or moisturiser again to rub into nails and cuticles. This helps keep them soft. Once moisturiser has been absorbed you can add a new colour.

Nail Polish Col. Vixen Dream Girl is bang on trend for this season’s bold shades.

Winter wind and rain along with indoor heating can dry skin out. Combat this by drinking plenty of water and exfoliating skin once a week to remove any dead cells. Make sure skin is moisturised daily and than any dry patches are treated with an intensive moisturiser.

To keep a healthy glow use either Dream Girl’s Pump Foundation or Tube Foundation to give an even cover. Both come in a variety of shades and provide a creamy application to ensure they skin does not dry out.

Just like your skin your hair can get dry, particularly at the tips. Throughout the winter you should use an intensive moisture pack for your hair. Try to reduce the number of times you need to use heat, for example using a blow drier or straighteners as this can damage already tired hair.

If you already have Dream Girl Hair Extensions you can buy special shampoo and conditioner designed specifically to keep your extensions shiny and healthy for longer.

You might be planning to treat yourself to Dream Girl Hair Extensions to give you a new look this spring. Make sure your natural hair is in tip top condition before hair extensions are fitted. This will create an even healthier and vibrant look once you add extensions for volume or length.

Step out feeling Chic

If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to transform your style then a wig is a great solution.

Made using either synthetic hair or 100% human hair, a wig is the easiest solution if you want to chop and change your look, without making a long-term commitment.

And Dream Girl’s Chic Collection is the ideal range with a host of styles, lengths, textures and colours to suit everyone.

In a new film on Dream Girl’s You Tube channel you can watch stylist Lynn Wallis select a new wig for Laine.

It’s perfect if you have short hair and want to try a new style that is a little longer.

The first thing to do is to check for a colour that best matches you.

How to choose depends on how the colour makes you look. If it isn’t right for your complexion, i.e., it’s too dark, you might end up looking washed out. A colour that doesn’t suit you will make a wig look unnatural and the idea is to make it look as seamless your own locks.

If you go to Dream Girl’s Colour Chart for the Chic Collection you’ll see they have a range of colours from Apricot Blond to Sunset Brown, and everything in between.

You also need to try on a a few to get the right style. Whether with a fringe or a layered cut you want to choose a wig that best suits the shape of your face and will compliment you. It should feel comfortable as well and fit securely on your scalp.

Dream Girl’s Chic Collection is made up of finely wefted wigs, which means the hair is much more likely to fall naturally, making it easier for you to turn it into a great hairstyle.

In the video the stylist uses curling tongs and plenty of hairspray to add a little volume and style to Laine’s wig. You can use rollers to add a little lift at the roots and tongs for a shape at the tips. Spray will help keep the style in for longer.
