L’Oréal Professionnel hosted the finale of IT LOOKS 2017

L’Oréal Professionnel, the Parisian house of hairdressing, hosted the grand finale of global IT LOOKS for 2017 in Karachi on 24th April 2017 in collaboration with International Technical Consultant Tarek Rizk. The tailor made hair colors for the Spring Summer shows were Copper Foilyage and Nude Beige. Last year’s incredibly popular IT Girl and recently announced Local Spokeperson for L’Oréal Professionnel Hareem Farooq walked the show sporting the Copper Foilyage along with model Rehmat Ajmal who was seen sporting the Nude Biege as the second IT Girl.

 

Featuring the hair looks for Spring/Summer, the idea was to inspire salons to learn the high fashion, edgy and inspirational IT LOOKS for 2017. The event was held in Marriott, Karachi.

 

The event was opened by Emaan Ahmad Brand Manager L’Oreal Professionnel Hair Color and Tanzila Hashwani, Education Manager at L’Oreal Professionnel where they talked about the latest trends that came together to create IT LOOKS 2017. They spoke about how hair color is the new make-up and how the latest hair coloration trends are now inspired by make-up techniques like contouring, strobing amongst others. Tanzila then went to reveal the IT LOOKS 2017 with official images of Hareem Farooq in Copper Foilyage and Rehmat Ajmal in Nude Beige followed by a short beauty film introducing IT LOOKS 2017.

 

Tarek Rizk took the stage after and went on to discuss international trends and started a live demonstration by showing before images of models and then inviting them on stage to reveal their after looks followed by live styling and cutting before sending each model forward to walk down the ramp. The models with the same color family walked in pairs to demonstrate variations. The hair maestro styled 9 looks live on stage before inviting the IT GIRLS to the stage and styling their final looks before taking a grand final walk down the ramp with each IT GIRL on either side. Both IT GIRLS were dressed in Mango Pakistan which was the official wardrobe partner for the campaign.

 

The Copper Foilyage was created taking into account the fact that copper is the color of the season as spotted on the runways for Alexander Wang, Noon by Noor and Leanne Marshall. The colorists worked with a palette of red, gold and copper shades to sublime facial features and complexion. The Nude Beige has been inspired from the no make-up look trend that has taken the international fashion scene by storm as seen on ramp for designers like Dior, Chanel and Elie Saab who sent out their models in nude make up looks for a chic and natural effect.

The event was attended by multiple partnering salons like Meher Najeeb Salon, Toni & Guy South, Aliya Tipu and Annie’s Alle’nora amongst others. The event was also attended by social media bloggers from Karachi along with print journalists and broadcast channels.

 

In celebration of the finale, the brand team created a space for ‘Salon Emotion’, a new program that has been designed to reinvent the client’s journey in salon by redefining business and designing the salon in 7 steps. L’Oreal Professionnel is committed to the salon fraternity by bringing such innovative concepts to further push the boundaries of the beauty industry in Pakistan.

My sleek hair experience with “Jose Eber Ceramic Iron”

Brand Jose Eber Ceramic

Product : Pink Zebra 1.25 “

Results: Satisfactory

Being a fan of Zebra print this Jose Eber Ceramic Flat iron clicked me most when I was looking for a ceramic flat iron for gentle hair ironing. Many electronic brands claim they have ceramic iron with the best results but keep in mind if they are thinly ceramic coated they will soon fade away and the harsh metal coat will burn your hair layers as a result.

 

This Jose Eber Pink Ceramic Iron is love I apply my all time favorite Gliss Kur serum to add extra shine in my hair after ironing

When trying out the iron in my hands for the first time (Oh excited me ), I noticed that the ceramic plates close all the way properly when I clamp down the main reason to switch my hair iron brand. My hair is medium thick and 1.25 Inch flat iron is the best selection to iron my hair.

The thing I like most about my newish invention Jose Eber Ceramic Iron is its very gentle that assure me my hair not gona damage and the smooth flat iron surface make it quicker and easier to iron. And being very selective about hair styling machines I prefer to curl my hair with my iron and it really gives amazing results.

 

Some hair Ironing tips

Always use heat protection serum or spray before using a straightening iron to protect frizzy hair from styling heat iron. Never go above 365 degree heat. Use comb and iron at the same time for best results

 

Why Ceramic?

Always prefer pure ceramic hair iron to avoid hair damage metal iron subject to worst hair damage. Ceramic is naturally hygienic, protects hair color and prevents fading leaving hair shiny and absolutely frizz free. But keep in mind ceramic iron needs extra care like your hair does.

 

So try out Jose Eber Pink Zebra Ceramic iron to indulge in the sleek hair experience , To get this amazing hair styling diva at your door step order via Areej Al Noor to practice amazing online shopping experience.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams – A must have !

NYX Soft Matte Lip colors

Today I am going to share my thoughts about Nyx matte Lip creams.

Nyx soft matte lip creams are now a days one of my favorite beauty findings!

The name itself shows it’s creamy instead of watery though it’s not long lasting, disappears quickly. The creamy formula makes it non drying that’s pretty cool. These Matte Cream lip colors are available in twelve shades and the range covers everyone either you like peachy tones or dark brownish ones my favorite shades are Paris hot pink and Ibiza Matte deep rose pink and for super cool nude lip look I like Buenos Aries Soft coral .

The sweet creamy scent and soft creamy feel make’s it my favorite.

I will recommend this range to everyone as it has all the features that a fantastic gloss should have and to top it all, it’s also affordable.

Clearasil daily facial Scrub

My facial cleansing satisfied with exfoliation. And I was in need of a mild scrub for everyday use recently I got Clearasil daily scrub

Clearasil is a combination of a cleanser and exfoliator. It’s quite watery and contains fine granules. After using it, the best thing about it removes the dead skin off and turns my skin bit softer. The fragrance is quite pleasing and refreshing. Though my skin is sensitive but with this facial scrub I didn’t feel any harshness.
The thing I like most is Salicylic acid helps in keeping the acne away. And it makes skin visibly clearer.

I recommend this facial scrub for oily and moderate skin
