When you look good, you feel good and vice versa. Developing a healthy view on beauty rests on developing routines that require a little bit of research and attention to what is good for you and what is not, in terms of beauty, mind and body. So what things are good to pay attention to in particular? Keep scrolling and learn how to start developing that perfect balance between a healthy mind, body, and relationship with beauty.
Healthy Beauty, Healthy Mind, Healthy You
Think Clean & Declutter
Whether it's your work space, the food you put into your body, or the products you put on your skin, keeping a simple and clean mindset is the best way to start developing a healthy relationship with beauty. Start thinking about the things you need versus the things you don't. If you tend to have dry skin and hair, maybe skip on the overload of hot tools or heavy makeup. Pay attention to what your body, hair, and skin react to, both in positive and negative ways. Once you start to track this, you'll start to feel a sense of control over your relationship with beauty, ultimately making you feel beautiful in more ways than one. You can also start by doing little things such as de-cluttering your space. A good rule of thumb is to have 3-5 skin & hair products at a time and 5 basic beauty products that you plan to put on your face. A physically clean beauty space will also guarantee a clean space in that beautiful mind of yours!
Maintenance is Key
A healthy relationship with beauty takes work, but it's always worth it in the long run. You'd be surprised how a little bit of maintenance goes a long way. Here are just a few little things that you can do to make a big difference in your beauty routine: drink more water, don't overuse makeup or hair products, lessen smoking and alcohol, always wash your face at least two times a day, and DRINK. MORE. WATER. The key is to realize that beauty maintenance is like a wagon. It's okay to fall off every now and then, as it's not an easy thing to keep up with, but you must always get back on to keep things moving at a healthy flow.
When developing a healthy relationship with beauty, the goal is to develop an overall healthy lifestyle. Pay attention to the things that make you feel amazing via mind, body, and soul and form a commitment to doing those things often. We take pride in being in the beauty industry as it's let us educate and empower women like you to see how beautiful you truly are and give you the resources to always feel that way. How do you maintain a healthy relationship with beauty?

After declaring ourselves a sustainable Davines salon, you might be able to tell that the brand holds some of our most favorite products. While we’ve included many of their products in our posts and in our salon routines for clients, we wanted to give you a narrowed down list of our top favorite products and list the reasons why we love them so much!
1. OI All in One Milk
Sometimes, there’s a product that does it all! From hydrating, to detangling, to minimizing frizz, the OI All in One Milk is one of Davines’ top rated products. Whether you have flyaways or frizz, running it through your locks after a shower keeps things feeling fresh and looking smooth. The scent and miracle working ingredient? Roucou oil - a naturally rich oil that provides hydration and stimulates melanin!
2. Award Winning OI Shampoo & Conditioner
After being named the go-to daily shampoo and conditioner by Refinery 29, it’s no wonder why we think of them as heaven on earth! Once they’ve been evenly applied and rinsed (very little application needed), hair is smoother, shinier, and more voluminous than ever. Being infused with the beloved Roucou oil that's full of beta-carotene & antioxidants, hair also gains strength and a gorgeously fresh smell. We only have one warning - once you try it you’ll want to use it forever!
3. OI Absolute Beautifying Potion Oil
During the Winter and Summer months, hair takes a beating. Whether it’s from constant styling or chlorine, it’s most likely to go through a dry and damaging rough patch. Since this is quite unavoidable, it’s important to have a good product on hand all year long. Not only does the OI Oil size make for the perfect stocking stuffer & fit perfectly in a handbag, it’s useful to apply it whether you’re styling your hair or not. Apply after a shower for smooth, shiny locks and let dry, or run through those little spurts of flyaways once you’ve already styled your hair.
There’s nothing better than an innovative, brand new color-treatment brought into the world of beauty. Flamboyage isn’t so much a product as it a technique to develop a more natural color with incredible dimension. Using some of Davines top quality color products, we’ve incorporated flamboyage as one of our most favored color treatments and our clients agree! The creative application technique makes for some amazingly blended color affects. Stop in the salon today or contact us for more information on Flamboyage!
Giving you the rundown on our favorite products means letting you in on our hair care philosophy and values. Davines is an all natural-based brand which is something we hold close to our hearts. It’s important to us that people use a product that’s healthy for their hair and enhances their natural beauty, ultimately instilling confidence. It’s also important that they leave our chairs with a healthy view on beauty and aware that they can live that out in their daily lives. So, what’s your favorite beauty product? We’d love to know!
As the weather changes, so does our hair and skin's need for TLC. This can cause you to dread your daily beauty routine which is stressful and just plain unfair! With what seems like so much maintenance and so little time, we want to provide you with the top tips for small but effective beauty changes this winter, bound to make your life easier and your busy days enjoyable!
Healthy Skin. Healthy Hair.
1. Even though we're not moving into the sunnier months, always use that SPF! If makeup is a part of your daily routine, make sure to clean your brushes frequently and gently apply a SPF based foundation.
2. Hydrate like crazy! Aside from drinking a lot of water, make sure to apply a hydrating lotion or moisturizer to your face and body each morning and before bed if possible, preferably after a shower. This also includes finding a good, moisturizing lip stick or lip balm. Proper moisturization prevents dry, cracked skin which can be bothersome and painful! We recommend using Davines Authentic Nourishing Oil.
2. Exfoliate skin 3 times a week to remove dead skin for a brighter, youthful effect. This creates the perfect surface for any other skincare products to be absorbed, making for the best impact! Our favorite is a sugar scrub since they are meant to be gentle on the skin.
3. While exfoliating and moisturizing is important, it's also crucial to be easy on your lovely skin. Let it breathe every now and then by using a humidifier but avoid using harsh temperatures when showering. This allows for skin to feel and look refreshed while defeating redness and dryness!
4. Apply a hair mask 1 time a week to repair and hydrate locks, making them healthier and shiny! Give the award-winning Davines Nounou shampoo a try!
5. Use a wet brush or wide tooth comb with a detangler when hair is clean and damp. Brushing hair while it's wet can cause hair to snap! Try Davines OI Leave In Milk. It helps to protect, detangle, defrizz, hydrate and strengthen hair with its main power house ingredient Roucou.
6. Balayage your solid hair color to create dimensions and brighten the face!
7. Create a new texture to your locks and go wavy. Prior to curling, spray each section of hair for protection then once it's all curled, take a brush and break it down. Finish with a dime size of OI Oil to soften and smooth ends.
8. Bored with your hair but scared to experiment with any physical changes? Change up your products and invest in tools like the Hot Tools 3/4” wand. Top it off with the Davines No Gas Spray for hold and shine!
It's important to remember that you already have the beauty part down, gorgeous! Products and tips like these just make it easier for you to maintain the craziness throughout your crazy days, especially with the holidays coming up so quickly! With these hot tips, you'll be sure to stay on your game during this cold season. What beauty changes do you make from season to season? Share in the comments below!
With all of the Pumpkin spice and decorations in store, it's no secret that it's Fall and that people are excited about it. We can't lie either. We are so excited for the new cuts, colors, and makeup trends that Fall allows us to play with! We will show you the trends to try and how to confidently rock your own style all season. Because let's get real, you look perfect in any season! Keep scrolling to know the runway-inspired and bold-yet-effortless trends that will ensure a smooth transition from the Summer to Fall months.
When it comes to your cut this Fall, keep it relaxed but feel free to have some fun too! Relaxed, smooth locks is the trend of 2017, allowing you to style and add color at ease. Davines' More Inside has amazing products to help you keep things smooth if you don’t feel like styling your hair, which is a great way to show your natural, grown out beauty. If you're wanting to mix things up a bit, middle parted, side swept bangs are the chicest thing on our radar right now! Think back to those 1970s Briget Bardot bangs or Jessica Biel’s current style. Throwing in some vintage vibes is the perfect way to settle your Fall style, specifically channeling some trends from the 70s. There’s something soft-yet-bold about them that creates a classic, effortless look.
This fall, your hair and your coffee might have a lot more in common than you think. When it comes to color, shades like mocha or caramel are all the rage right now and we are all for it! A mixture of undertones with color melting balayage create a mix that’s forgiving to all hair types, skin tones, eye color, and face shapes. We also love the fact that fun colors are so in right now! Adding pink, teal, or lavender to your locks is no longer for middle schoolers only. This is because it pairs so beautifully with the balayage trend. Check out this chocolate mauve color and burnt rose gold style. When it comes to choosing the right color for you, it’s important to do your research, communicate with your stylist, and go confidently with your decisions!
Usually, a dark lip and bold brows pairs beautifully with neutral eyes and nude nail polish. For Fall 2017, we can expect things to get a little more bold and electric. Add some shimmer! When applying a natural look, add a light pink shimmer at the inner corner of the eyes. To go bold, add a hint of blue to the eyes that pairs perfectly with a nude or dark lip. Smudge it out! Subtly smudged eye shadow at the bottom lid makes for an amazing, chic look. Smudging your upper lid eyeshadow a little higher with a softer color (pink or sienna) is also on-trend at the moment!
If you can’t already tell, keeping things simple but adding one little dazzling detail, like the statement mani, which perfectly offsets a look. It’s just a matter of finding the dazzling detail that works for you and what makes you feel like the stunning beauty that you are! Our favorite thing about this Fall is how easy it is to create an effortless, chic look. Most of these trends are inspired from the runway and favored because of their applicability and versatility. This means a smooth, enjoyable Fall for you when it comes to beauty. Don't be afraid to try something new, but also know that you've already got the goods, girl! Have fun this Fall!
