Transforming your look from corporate chic to the life of the party has never been easier

Headed from the office to an after-work soiree? Learning how to take your hairstyle from day to night will save you precious time and energy. So find out how to glam up your hair with this professional advice.

The Curls Have It

The easiest way to change your style from one look to the next is to curl it, says What Not to Wear stylist Nick Arrorjo. “Once hair is curly, it’s locked together,” he says. “It’s so much easier to pull it back, twist the top pieces, or roll the sides back, because the hair is all in one piece.”

To curl hair, Arrojo recommends washing it the night before, so the hair won’t be squeaky clean and will have better texture. He prefers a 1- to 1½-inch curling iron and advises against using anything larger. “You can always soften hair; you can’t always make it tighter,” he says. Spray each section of hair lightly with a non-aerosol hairspray, which is less sticky and makes restyling later in the day easier.


Down is the New Up

Contrary to popular advice, Arrorjo recommends wearing your hair down and flowing at night and in a chic twist during the day. “Loose hair is sexier and more dramatic, while an updo is office appropriate,” he says. The bonus: After unwinding your hair from a twist, you’ll instantly have pretty waves. All you have to do is run your fingers through the roots to restore volume, and you’re ready to go.


Invest in Your Style

A well-styled blowout can make it through the day — and sometimes the next day, too, says Erin Anderson, a Brooklyn, New York-based stylist and a TRESemmé beauty and fashion consultant.

To give your style staying power, use gels or mousses. Avoid serums, which can weigh hair down or make it look greasy. Another way to help your style last is to avoid touching your hair throughout the day, as hands can add excess oil to strands, Andersons says, and that can lead to lifeless locks come party time.


Refresh Your Hairstyle

At the end of the day, revive your hairstyle with a curling iron or a flat iron. If you’re at the office or on the road and that’s not possible, try teasing roots with a comb to create volume and shape, says Anderson. Lock it in by using a little hairspray when finished.

Arrojo has a simple trick for making a style instantly more glam: Move your part an inch further down the side than your daytime look and push your bangs or front pieces across your face. “It’s very sexy to have a bang sweep across your face and eye,” he says.


Hair Accessories

Feminine headbands and barrettes are very in this season, according to Anderson, and can be a party girl’s best friend. Clip limp locks off your face with a barrette or tease your hair and pull it back with a headband for instant glamour. Anderson particularly likes festive patent-leather flower barrettes and feather-adorned headbands.

To get barrettes in the right place, Arrojo suggests using a large clip, like the ones used at hair salons for placement of your hair. Then, once you have your hair pulled back the way you want it, replace it with the more decorative barrette. “The clips are much easier to maneuver and will save you time.”

Oil- Your Contour Shapewear and body shapers

The idea of “washing” your face with oil sounds completely contradictory — after all, oil is exactly what you’re trying to remove, right?
Wrong. “I’m a big fan of cleansing oils,” says Francesca Fusco, MD, a dermatologist and assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.

 

Though oils have been used in skin care since the dawn of civilization — the ancient Greeks were said to have bathed in the stuff — Fusco suspects the recent resurgence is due to a passion for natural products. “Everyone is returning to natural, healthy, and green products and cleansing oils sound more natural than soap and in many cases, they are,” she says.
So just what are the benefits of facial cleansing oils?

 

Effective makeup removers: “Facial cleansing oils melt away makeup easily,” says Elizabeth Tanzi, MD, a clinical instructor in dermatology at Johns Hopkins Hospital Center and codirector of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Washington, DC. That even includes eye makeup, but be careful if you’re wearing contacts, cautions Fusco. “The oil can get on the lens and form deposits.”
More natural ingredients: A lot of gel and cream cleansers and even makeup wipes contain hard to pronounce ingredients that can dry out your skin. “Cleansing oils tend to be paraben-free, which is always a plus,” says Angela Orlandi, an esthetician based in New York City.
Gentle on skin: “Cleansing oils don’t strip the skin of its natural oils,” says Fusco. They hydrate really well and that hydration can last throughout the day or night, especially with the aid of a serum or moisturizer on top.

Is Your Moisturizer Working?

Who are facial cleansing oils right for?
Surprisingly, the experts agree that cleansing oils work for almost all skin types, including dry, combo, mature, sensitive, and oily. “Oily skin is not going to become oilier when you cleanse with one,” says Orlandi. “In fact, drying cleansers are more likely to cause acne because they are stripping your skin of all its oil, in turn, making you produce even more oil.”
Cleansing oils can be particularly beneficial for those with chronically dry skin, eczema, and psoriasis. “These products are missing sodium laureate sulfate and are less likely to irritate skin and trigger any problems,” says Fusco.

Finding the Right Facial Cleansing Oil for You

Oily skin: Boscia MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil ($28), contains botanicalamino acids that gently whisk away excess sebum.
Dry skin: Tata Harper Nourishing Oil Cleanser ($64), contains a super-hydrating blend of beta carotene, vitamins A, C, and E, lycopene, and omega 3.
Combo skin: Bareminerals Mineralixirs Facial Cleansing Oil ($30), with safflower oil and litchi extract, gently exfoliates as it cleanses and hydrates.
Aging skin: Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil ($32), contains argan oil that repairs and hydrates skin cells along with grape seed oil that helps improve skin’s elasticity.
Sensitive skin: DHC Cleansing Oil ($28), lists soothing olive oil as its main ingredient. The gentle, water-soluble formula won’t irritate even the most sensitive skin.
How to Wash With a Cleansing Oil .
When you’re ready to wash your face, squeeze a few drops of the cleansing oil onto palms and apply to damp skin.
“When your face is damp, it is hydrated and plumped up with moisture,” says Fusco. “The cleansing oil will help seal in moisture.”
Using the balls of your fingertips, massage it in a circular motion. Rinse with lukewarm water or a clean, damp cloth. Follow with your regular moisturizer.

Your Contour Shapewear and Body shapers

WOMEN SHOULD NEVER STOP LOOKING AWESOME!

Truth be told, there are women who tend to shy away from fashion after reaching a certain age. Aside from that, they also mention kids, work and weight gain as reasons for avoiding ‘dressing up’.
I understand these women because I was once like them. I simply use the most comfortable clothes I have – sweatshirt and denim – every day. Don’t get me wrong, I love fashion, but I don’t wear them.

Well, things can change, right?

When I started Your Contour Company, I decided to do two things. First, I made sure to update myself about fashion. I am very interested in clothes for curvy women, older women and new mommies. Second, I started wearing trendy clothes that would flatter my contour (thank goodness for shapewear!) and my age. I had to show other older women – married or not – that looking great is not a bad idea!

So, here are some general fashion tips for older women.

1. Evolve! IN now, OUT next month.

Fashion is never stagnant. So, know the latest trend and see if it is your style. Remember, you must also be comfortable with whatever you are wearing. Pick wisely!

2. Less is more!

When it comes to wearing accessories, some older women tend to go overboard. They want to use all their jewelries at the same time! Use just a few items and let them stand out!

3. Be Confident!

Sometimes, the real reason an older woman shy away from fashion is because of her bulges and love handles. She covers them up by using black or oversize clothing. Well, shapewear products are the best solution. They give you contour you never dream of. So, buy clothes that are flattering, use a shapewear undergarment and just feel confident!
Avoid using kids, time, bulges and love handles and even age as excuses to look great! You know you deserve to look fantastic! Remember, Fashion IS and WILL ALWAYS BE for everyone – YOUNG and … YOUNGER!

Man spinning woman on beach

THIRTY YEARS and counting!

Today, staying with the same person for more than thirty years is an achievement! So, congratulations to the lovely couple – my best friend Klariz and her hubby Reden. Believe it or not, they still glow like teenagers! Well, I am a great friend so I interrogated them to spill it out! How do they keep their marriage exciting?
Top three answers:

1. Laugh!

According to Klariz, they don’t plan to attend the Oscars to receive an acting award any time soon, so they don’t need a ‘dramatic’ marriage. Yes, they do have problems, but they make sure to handle it properly! If they can laugh about it before solving it, the better! Life is too short. And besides, let’s leave great acting to Leonardo DiCaprio!

2. Date! Date! Date!

Dating your spouse should not stop after the wedding! Let’s face it; a lot of couples tend to forget about dating because of the kids or work. This should never happen! According to the lovely couple, kids will grow up and leave the house and companies will let go, but it’s the spouse who will keep the ‘ever after’ promise. The question is, “Does the spouse REALLY want to stay?” Let love sparkle! Date twice or thrice a week!

3. Unleash the Goddess!

Always look great is the last tip. When dating, they make sure they use their secret weapon against bulges and love handles. Undershirt Body Shaper for him and Firm-Control Slip shapewear for her! Well, actually they use their shapewear almost every day and anywhere. They feel sexier and more confident when using said undergarments.

Never let the marriage sizzle out! Work at it. Get to know your spouse more by dating often. Keep things light! Finally, get a shapewear and look super confident and sexy – not for your spouse, but for YOU!

pet fashion, Your Contour Shapewear

Wanted: Model

Requirement: Must be a … Chihuahua!

Huh, come again?! Well, if you are dealing with pet fashion that’s what you will need, right?
Now, don’t think it is just a pet show! A pet FASHION show is way different from pet shows. Pet shows flaunt the pets while pet fashion shows grandstand the clothes, accessories and hairstyles!
In fact, believe it or not, there are people who are so ‘into’ pet fashion shows that they even have a Pet Fashion Week! In 2011, New York hosted the first Pet Fashion Week called the “Last Bark”. Well-known designers like Alexander Wang showed off his unique style with his own designed dog outfits.

So, why ‘accessorize’ pets?

First, it’s fun! Not to mention cute when you see the owner of the pet sashaying down the runway with the same outfit!
Second, designers get paid really well. Imagine spending almost half a million dollars for hairstyles, outfits, jewelry and other accessories for a week of pet fashion! This happened two years ago in the 2014 New York Pet Fashion Week.
And, best of all, most pet fashion shows help raise funds for pet organizations. That is the best end goal! To help the less fortunate animals have a better life. Let the designers and other pet lovers accessorize their pets all they want! We don’t see any problem as long as the grooming process is safe for the pets and the events help raise funds for animal shelters and the like.
Some folks may say that dressing up pets with crazy outfits is … well, crazy! Be as it may, pet fashion is here to stay for a long time. So, when you see people “petcessorizing” their pink Chihuahua with a yellow pedicure, a rainbow hairdo and a lot of bling bling … well, just smile and enjoy the show!

Simple Ways to Empower Oneself by Your Contour Shapewear

FREEDOM TO BE ME!

This simple statement, I believe, is the main point of empowerment. According to dictionaries, ‘empower’ means “to give power or authority”.

But what kind of power are we talking about exactly? Well, it covers four things, the power to – CHOOSE; DECIDE; DREAM and BE INDEPENDENT.

Choose and Decide

Do you let people make decisions for you?

More often than not, letting people have the last say will produce a ’sad’ you! Take for instance the parents who choose the college course of their kids or the wives asking the ‘permission or approval’ of their husbands if they can work while caring for the kids. Choosing what to do is sometimes difficult, but it doesn’t mean you let people run your life.
When you are an empowered woman, you make the choices. You know what’s good and what’s bad for you, right? Use it as your guide. Sometimes your choice works and sometimes it’s a bust. Well, shake it off and remain proud that you decided on your own!
Some decisions can change your life forever too. Jeanne, a close friend of mine made a difficult decision lately. Was it a bad decision? Far from it! Jeanne decided to change career after serving a company for fifteen years! Normally, you stick with a company after so many years of service, right? That’s a big ‘yes’ if security and pension are your end goal. But, what if an opportunity knocks on your door and it is too good to pass? What then? All you need to do is to take a ‘leap of faith’ and go for it!

Dream and Become

Let me start this part of the article by showing some survey results:

• Women work harder! That’s the conclusion given by a research consultancy firm after observing 274 subjects (53 percent women; 47 percent men) in an experimental trial.
• In another study, it was found out that women do 52 percent of professional jobs.
• Still in another study, the income of women globally increased from $4 trillion to$9.8 trillion. By next year, they believe the income will jump to $15.6 trillion.
Without a doubt, women have gone a long way! We have women who aspire for great things and they grab every opportunity to make it come true. Let me name a few – Oprah, Beyonce, Sally Ride (firs woman astronaut) and Hillary Clinton (first American woman president?)! Anyone can become whatever they choose. They just need perseverance and patience. Furthermore, true empowered women never listen to the words “You can’t, you are JUST a woman”!

Be Independent

Let’s be honest here. Are you intimidated by some false advertising presented in the media? You know; the breathtaking figure that women should have and stuff like that? They make you feel your contour is not good enough! In fact, Style Editor Janet Sahm stated that, “Seventy five percent of young women feel worse about themselves after three minutes of reading a fashion magazine.”
Real empowered woman will take this media brainwashing technique with a grain of salt. So what if you have bulges or love handles? It’s okay because you know you have the freedom to do something about it – IF YOU SO CHOOSE! You can go on a diet or simply buy a shapewear to flatten those bulges! No need to compare and no need to feel guilty. Products like shapewear are available and you have the freedom to buy them if you want! The bottom line is, nobody should make you feel bad about yourself!
Remember, empowering yourself is the only way to discover what you are capable of. It is also the only path to enjoy the freedom of being YOU!

Your Contour Shapewear: The Sporty Side!

Hey, are you aiming for a ‘double take’ body? You know, people giving you a second glance!

We all know Spring is the season of new beginnings. So, why not start with the ‘great body’ process. Why?

Three things -beach, sun, summer! Coming soon, right?!!

You could start by dieting and exercising every day. Sounds boring? Here is a great idea – get into sports! Tennis, golf, badminton – name it and they will definitely help you hit the bull’s-eye.
But what if you are too conscious of your bulges? Well, you can try what a lot of people are doing – sucking in their tummy making it look flat! Of course, it’s a challenge to do it for hours!
So, be realistic and accept the fact that maybe you need to use a shapewear underneath your sports attire. Remember, shapewear are not really just for dates, parties or special events. You can use shapewear products anytime and anywhere!

So girls, before you try any kind of sport, get a shapewear like the Bodybriefer Thong Shapewear.

This product will not just make you look gorgeous in your gown or dress, BUT will also make you stand out in your sports attire. You will get firmer hips, midsection and a straighter back once you put it on. Relax and let shapewear do the compressing or the ‘sucking in’ while you enjoy the sport.

But wait, what about the guys?

Well, thanks to Your Contour’s Slimming Undershirt Body Shaper, guys won’t have to get conscious of their bulges too. The undershirt will do its ‘magic’ to the hip, stomach and chest. It will compress bulges and make the body look firmer. Guys will look fantastic while playing baseball, basketball or any other sport.
There you have it girls and boys! Aside from dieting and exercising, sports are a great way to lessen some pounds. And when you use Your Contour shapewear while enjoying the chosen sport, it will make you more confident! Who knows, that second glance may lead to a … first date?

Your Contour Postpartum Shapewear

POSTPARTUM SHAPEWEAR: Reclaiming your contour!

 

THE HARD PART IS OVER. You gave birth!

Well, that is true, but there is one more challenge to overcome. The bumps that go with postpartum!

Let me tell you about Willow, my college buddy. She got married last year and wanted to have a kid right away. Wish granted … twice! Yes, Willow gave birth to twins – a boy and a girl – two weeks ago! Willow absolutely adores her twins. She knows that kids would change her life forever. But she never expected that her body would change that much! What’s wrong? The lumps and bumps she ‘wears’ postpartum. Moreover, because of her belly fat, people thought she was still pregnant!

One day, Willow approached me and said, “I want my figure back!” You see, before giving birth Willow is the proud owner of a six-pack abs and a tiny waistline. All our friends, including myself, envied her contour! But now, she is a bit conscious because of her belly bump. She even revealed her plan to go under the knife just to get her figure back.

Fortunately, I gave her a better option. I introduced her to the Body Shaper Extra firm Postpartum Shapewear. I actually used this shapewear after I gave birth a few years back. It really works! The shapewear helped contour my waist and abdomen. It re-tightened my skin after the surgery. Moreover, it lifted my buttocks and enhanced my bust area. The shapewear was so comfortable that I wore it everywhere I go.

Today, Willow is a happy owner of a Body Shaper Extra firm Postpartum Shapewear. She wears them every day! Her confidence is back and vows to reclaim her figure the natural way. With a little help from shapewear, I am sure she can do it.

Without a doubt, shapewear products can help build or rebuild self-confidence. So, if you just gave birth and want to get your contour back postpartum, grab a shapewear today!

The Three S’s to Spring Weddings!

TAKE IT OFF! Oh yes, take off your winter clothes and start a new season! Spring is here again! Got plans?

I am sure a lot of you will check out different festivals while others will enjoy outdoor activities like picnics and such. Well, I am all for that, but I am also excited to attend one special and unique spring wedding of a close friend.

Tatum, a high school buddy, and Sam, her future husband, are not very keen with the traditional wedding celebration. According to them, it’s too serious (and boring?). They prefer to celebrate their big day with a BANG! They want everybody to enjoy and remember the special occasion for a long time. Well, that’s the trend in weddings today. So, they decided to STRUT up and down the aisle!

Yes! And knowing Tatum, I believe they will look sensational. They are very confident because they both know how to dance. And, to make Tatum look fantastic, I suggested two ‘secret weapons’! The Glamore Firm Control Slip Shapewear and the ARMore Secrecy Arm Shapewear! Don’t get me wrong. Tatum enjoys her contour, but she wants to look extra special especially during her wedding ‘presentation’. What the bride wants, the bride gets! She wants her arms to look toned and that’s the job of the ARMore Secrecy Arm Shapewear. Moreover, to make sure she looks great while sashaying up or down the aisle, I also suggested she use the Glamore Firm Control Slip Shapewear. Yes, gone are the bulges, just one lovely contour!

Weddings are always special, but why not make it EXTRA special, right? Be creative! Present something the wedding guests would really enjoy. Who knows you might be the next social media trending star!

Remember the three “S” when planning a wedding:

  • Celebrate it during Springtime
  • Prepare a Sensational production
  • Get a fantastic Shapewear to take care of your contour!
