Whether you are a proponent of arm candy or prefer a single, delicate accessory, bracelets are a beautiful way to incorporate pizzazz and style into your look. And if you’re fond of tattoos, you can permanently add this piece of jewelry to your wrist. Elegant bracelet tattoos can be customized easily: opt for a simple “chain” with a “charm” of your initial (or that of a loved one), a string of stars, or a cluster of posies.

CONTEMPORARY WATERCOLOR HAIR!

Here at The Salon Professional Academy, a Redken Academy in San Jose, we love us some watercolor tresses. You can find ladies of all ages rocking this trend! We came a across this fab article on Popsugar.com showcasing PRAVANA Artistic Color Director Vadre Grigsby, creating her version of the look. Check out the article below to learn more.

By now the image of a woman with rainbow, unicorn-like hair seems commonplace. The look has been trending on Instagram for a few years, but that doesn’t mean we are over it. And sometimes the classics — like watercolor-inspired locks — are still our favorites.

This video of Pravana Artistic Color Director Vader Grigsby creating the look on a blonde woman reminded us how pretty watercolor hair is. In the video, the technique was also explained in case you want to try it or tell your colorist how to do it.

Rainbow hues were applied horizontally to sections in random areas. Shades are layered in an artistic way. “This look is created visually and relies on subtle saturation of colors in varying shades,” the video caption states. The colorist continues to take sections and repeat this technique so the watercolors layer over each other.

Watch it to see this mesmerizing and gorgeous mermaid transformation!

She styles them herself with yarn she buys from the craft store. To finish her entire head takes upward of 30 hours. But as she tells us, color is such a motivating factor in her life that it’s “absolutely” worth it.

The designer, stylist, and YouTuber, 33, has long been obsessed with bold, splashy hues. In 2011, she started her own paper decor company, Studio Mucci, thus earning her the nickname “The Tassel Fairy.” When she’s not spreading magic through her crafts, she uses her YouTube channel to inspire other women to be confident and, of course, “to live colorfully.”

News: Peanut…. Peanut Butter and Honey

Too faced did it again, and now in early 2017 we will have the Peanut Butter and Honey shadow collection. Checkout this fab article by BY DEVON ABELMAN for Allure.com

From chocolate to peaches, Too Faced has the scented eye-shadow palette game on lock. The Too Faced Peanut Butter Honey palette is about to be added to the brand’s ever-growing roster of food-inspired makeup palettes. Jerrod Blandino, the brand’s cofounder, announced the upcoming release on Instagram yesterday with the caption: “Salty & Sweet! @ultabeauty #sneakypeek #spring2017 #21DaysOfBeauty #toofaced.”

The upcoming palette is a spin-off of the popular Peanut Butter and Jelly Eye Shadow Collection, which launched earlier this year. If the Too Faced Peanut Butter Honey palette is anything like its predecessor, it will come with nine creamy shadows that smell like the theme of the palette. I’m hoping for golden yellow shadows and coppery brown shades to choose from. I’m also pretty pumped about this launch because I ride-or-die for the Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Eye Shadow Collection. Peanut Brittle, a metallic copper, is my go-to fall shadow shade. And the PB&J scent is no joke. Every time I open up the palette, I’m brought back to my days in the elementary school cafeteria eating a peanut-butter sandwich. (I was anti-jelly as a child.)

If this palette is as popular as the PB&J one, I’m placing my bets that a peanut butter, banana, and bacon one isn’t too far behind. Elvis deserves his own eye-shadow palette in the form of his favorite sandwich, if you ask me. As for the release date of the Too Faced Peanut Butter Honey palette, we may be waiting for a while—it looks like it won’t hit Ulta stores until spring 2017.
