4 Hairstyles To #BeautyUp Your Night Out | Clozette

Gone are the days of sticking to one signature hairstyle. From side swept hair, to loose wavy curls, to sleek, straight hair, and to the ever popular Victoria's Secret Angel signature middle parting... there's an array of different hairstyles to pick from whenever you're heading out.


So if you're looking for easy hairstyles to help you #BeautyUp on your next girls' night out, here are 4 hairstyle ideas to try:


--------------------------


Side Swept




There is something extremely alluring and sexy about long, side swept hair that's polished off with soft waves. Re-create this look by curling chunky pieces of your hair with a 2-inch curling wand and setting a deep side part by pinning one of the sides away from your face. Finish it off with hair spray to hold the soft curls.

Big Waves




Soft, big waves are the way to go if you're looking to pull off an easy-breezy look. After washing your hair, add volumizing mousse to your roots and blow dry with your hair flipped down. Then, spritz your hair with salt spray and curl it with a 2-inch curling wand. Loosen up the curls with your fingers and keep the frizz away with a pump of serum through the ends.



Red Carpet Curls



For that polished look perfect for the red-carpet, tight curls loosely draped over your shoulders has been a tried and tested hairstyle sworn by many celebrities. To re-create the look, curl your hair with a 1-inch curling wand, focusing on directing the curls away from your face. Finish off with serum to combat frizz and to keep the curls shiny and bouncy.



Straight Down the Middle




Here's a tip for those who have a penchant for always changing their hairstyle: switch up your parting as well. Alternating between a side and middle parting helps reduce breakage and hair loss. Best thing about rocking the middle parting: you can channel your inner Victoria's Secret Angel. To further strengthen your hair and protect it from hairstyling damage, you can also turn to Cream Silk's Hair Fall Defense Daily Treatment Conditioner. It makes hair softer and stronger by reinforcing weak areas and infusing flexibility to help prevent hair fall in just one wash.

Photographs and Instagram posts aside, one sentimental way by which you can remember a special holiday is through fragrances. Try it, you’ll be pleasantly surprised! To get you started, here are our recommendations of fragrances you could wear for different types of holidays. Happy experimenting!

--------------------------

Imagine the long, scenic roads that’ll lure you towards the horizon, the sweet taste of salty air, the gentle warmth of the sun on your skin … These are moments you will relish over and over every time you catch a whiff of the scent you wear on the trip.  



So if you’re planning one, don’t neglect to put perfume down on your to-buy list. It should be light, refreshing, crisp and sporty — something that’ll put you and your vroomies in a chipper mood throughout the journey. We recommend something fruity — with lychee, mango or orange, for instance — or a light floral fragrance that contains jasmine, peony or tuberose.

Our Picks: Gucci Flora Garden Tuberose, Jo Malone Wild Bluebell Cologne
For many people, their honeymoon is probably one of the most memorable of holidays. Some of you may want to remember your honeymoon as part of your wedding, and so it makes sense to wear the same perfume on your trip as the one you wore at your wedding. It’ll save you the hassle of shopping for two different fragrances, too.
  


But if you are meticulous to a fault, and plan on choosing a scent that befits the destination, or a scent that’s a little less celebratory and a little more romantic, by all means! While a perfume that’s exotic and Oriental at heart (think resins and wood with musk, vanilla, and exotic flowers and spices) is sure to get you in the mood for love, the most important rule of all is really to just go with your heart: Pick the one you love.

Our Picks: Dolce&Gabbana Rose The One, Lanvin Marry Me Love Edition


If you, like us, enjoy that annual, meditative me-time away from everything and everyone — just you and the sea, the spa and the sound of the waves, as well as a mojito and a good book, then we trust that you already have a pretty solid checklist of what to pack.
 


But here’s a piece of advice: Leave all your perfumes behind. Perfumes you’ve worn to work, to a business meeting, to brunch with the in-laws. Do you really want to pack those memories with you to Bali or the Maldives? So, buy a travel-sized fragrance that catches your fancy at the airport duty-free shop — something that soothes and relaxes your mind, something that reminds you of the ocean, perhaps. Nothing too heavy, that’s for sure!

Our Picks: Escada Island Kiss, Sargasso by Oscar de la Renta

When it comes to achieving that sought after dewy, white skin that seems to glow from within, the Koreans have it down pat. So If you're looking to get the same results for your skin, here are a few beauty tips to implement into your own beauty regimen.


--------------------------


Tip #1: Layering



While many have come to rely on those all-in-one products, nothing beats the nourishing effects of product layering as it allows you to mix-and-match the exact products to use on your face based on your skin's needs. Follow this tried and test layering order: toner, essence, serum, moisturiser, facial oil, SPF, eye cream. Remember to take a break between each layer to let the product fully absorb into your skin.
Tip #2: Hydration



Hydration is key to get your skin looking plump and dewy. Aside from upping your water intake, take it a step further with a hydrating facial mist to spray all over your face. It's a great product to throw into your bag for an instant complexion refresher through the day. Look for one that works well even when sprayed over makeup.


Tip #3: Double Cleansing



The key to clear skin: keeping it clean. So at the end of the day, be sure to do a thorough double cleanse of your face. Essentially, this process involves first cleaning your face with an oil-based makeup remover (even if you're not wearing makeup). Oil-based products break down makeup and dirt a lot better without drying out your face. Wipe it all away with a gentle cloth before following up with a foam cleanser to wash away the oil.


Tip #4: What's Your Essence?



Essences are a big deal in Korea, from whitening, toning, to anti-aging essences, they've got them all. The beauty of this product is in its ability to absorb quickly and thoroughly into the skin, in a manner that outperforms serums and creams. This makes it a great first step to any beauty routine, packing a whole lot of skincare benefits. Plus point: it is also relatively low-maintenance. Just press it gently over you face, let it dry, and proceed with your usual routine.


Tip #5: Sheet Masks



Face masks are all the rage in Korea and beyond. It gives your skin a good'ol spa-like boost in the comfort of your home. These little wonders are packed full of serums that deliver a quick hydrating boost for when your skin is tired and sallow. When you're anticipating a big event in the week, go ahead and plop these on your face every single day. Your skin will thank you for it. In cases when you just want a quick pick-me-up, a sheet mask session twice a week is sufficient.
