Extensions 101

LEARN ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE

TAKING THE PLUNGE INTO EXTENSIONS: EXTENSIONS 101

LET’S TALK EXTENSIONS 101!! There is so much to know and to consider when contemplating, “Do I get extensions or not?”

FIRST, why are you wanting extensions? Are you just wanting to add volume? Or is gaining length most important? Would you like to spice up your color? Knowing what your expectations are of the extensions will help your stylist determine the right extension look for you.

SECOND, how much time are you willing to spend caring for your extensions? How much time do you actually have to style? Are you the type of girl that can barely be bothered to brush your hair and are throwing it into a messy bun daily? Do you  shampoo daily? Are you active in sports? Do you swim a lot? What types of hair care products do you use?  All of these questions are very important to ask yourself as they will determine whether extensions are right for you.

THIRD, and this is the MOST IMPORTANT! What is your budget? The truth is that extensions are an investment. An investment that has two parts, the INITIAL investment and the MAINTENANCE investments. They also are NON-REFUNDABLE. What is the maximum dollar amount that you are willing to invest initially? What is the maximum dollar amount you are willing to spend monthly to maintain the look? Are you willing to invest in the proper hair care products and tools to protect your investment and maintain the condition of the extensions?  Note, you won’t get high quality extensions at a minimal price and you aren’t going to go from chin length hair to hair down the middle of your back without needing a lot of hair. More Hair Needed For Desired Look = More Money Per Initial Investment and Maintenance Investment = More Time Spent Styling and Caring for Your Investment

 

Bottom line is, extensions are GREAT! They are great if you are willing to invest the TIME and the MONEY. Those that take the plunge into the world of extensions, LOVE them. Extensions can make your hair go from lifeless to voluptous in just a couple hours. Not to mention the confidence you will gain when you look and feel your best. Talk about INSTANT GRATIFICATION!

Treat and Protect Your Skin

Treat and Protect Your Skin

 

We spend so much time and money on our hair. I mean, why not? It is one of our best accessories! We clarify, hydrate, and protect our locks all in the name of beauty. However, there is another accessory we need to take care of as much as we take of our hair.

You guessed it! It’s our SKIN! So what do we do for our skin? We all know that we should be cleansing, toning, and moisturizing twice daily to help keep our skin looking it’s most radiant. Most of us do just that.  We get up in the morning complete our skin care regime and then what? What do we do once we have fresh clean radiant skin? We put on our MAKEUP!

MAKEUP is a great and easy way to enhance our best facial features, however that is not all that it can do and that’s not all it should do after we just spent our time cleansing, toning, & moisturizing. Makeup can protect our skin as well. That is, if we are using a product designed to do so. We at Mod have found a cosmetic line that does just that, TREATS & PROTECTS.

What is this cosmetic line you ask? It is Sorme Treatment Cosmetics, a brand based out of Valencia, California. What we LOVE about Sorme is that they approach makeup from a skin care point of view, focusing on treating and protecting the skin by formulating their products with clinically proven anti-aging peptides, natural antioxidant botanicals, and sunscreens. Another reason to LOVE Sorme is that they are a CRUELTY FREE product line. Which is great news for all of us animal lovers out there. 🙂

One of our top picks is their Treat & Tint BB Cream. This is a great product for those of us looking for sheer coverage with protection from the sun. It has a SPF of 30 and is cruelty free, fragrance free, paraben free, talc free, and silicone free. It can be applied with Sorme’s Kabuki brush and worn alone for a light sheer finish or can be worn under foundation for sun protection as well as added hydration and nourishment. Available in four shades; Fair Beige, Light Honey, Medium Tan, & Deep Bronze.

So whether it’s our hair or our skin, make sure to always TREAT & PROTECT because they really are our best accessories. We wear them EVERYDAY!
