Summer Beauty Tips

Summer Beauty Tips

With the warm weather is here, we thought we would round up some of the Summer fashions and trends we are excited to try out for the sunny seasons of 2018. Rompers and Jumpers: We are excited these are back this season, and although they may be a little difficult as festival wear (getting down to your birthday suit in a public bathroom is never ideal), they are super comfortable and can go from office to night out with the change of a few accessories. Denim on Denim: Also, known as the Canadian tuxedo, the denim on denim look was popular in recent fashion weeks. This not only included shirts, jackets, and skirts, but also denim boots! Sheer/Transparent Dresses: Full length sheer dresses were found on many runways in a variety of colours, implementing various under garments for coverage as well. The Color Purple (or more specifically Lilac!): Shades of lilac graced the bodies of numerous models, especially in soft and flowy fabrics. This colour will be especially hot this spring. You can even incorporate the colour into your eye make up or nail polish choices. Anklets: Recent seasons saw the return of the 90’s choker, but this year will see the revival of the anklet, with mostly gold chain link. Pajama Robe Coats: Think of a mix between a trench coat and a kimono, these coats work with a pair or jeans or even a slip dress (another popular must have this season). Sparkle: Make up artists were not shy when it came to glitter over the past year of fashion weeks. Eyelids were gleaming at many shows, and some even showed off glittery lips. However, on your eyes is probably the most every day way to add a little bit of sparkle to your daily life. Who doesn’t love glitter! Lip Gloss: Or our personal fave, Lipglass (from MAC) is back in full swing. Matte was a popular look lately, but wet and glossy is gliding back in as the look of the season. Contour VS Draping: Replacing the popular contour look is the draping technique. This can look a little more bold and is less likely to be done on a daily basis, if you follow in Rhianna’s footsteps, but draping is essentially contouring using blush, which can also offer a softer look than Kardashian inspired contouring. Hair Clips: Not only practical but also beautiful! Decorated bobby pin style clips were used by many hair stylists on the runways of recent fashion weeks and are an easy way to add some sparkle into your morning routine.   And of course don’t forget your lashes!

The Benefits of Botox

The Benefits of Botox

True story. There are a lot of benefits of Botox, not just looking younger. A lot of people nowadays are getting Botox for other reasons. Something else you might not know, here at Ooh La Lash we have a nurse on site that is certified to inject Botox.     What are the benefits of Botox?     A little Botox can make those eyebrows match but still have their own personality. It can help your droopy eyebrows become tighter and more expressive.   Botox can also help with headaches. It helps reduce migraine pain and can help you focus better at work and doing day to day tasks.   With summer coming, wouldn’t you love to sweat a little less? Botox can help you sweat less.   It helps with Bells Palsy. Do you know someone that is affected by Bells Palsy? This will help their paralyzed side of their face.   It can stop eye twitching.   It can help you squint less and minimize the negative effects of squinting. It can help reduce sensitivity to light and nausea.   By coming into Ooh La Lash and speaking with our certified Botox specialist, you can figure out a plan to help with any of the above. As well, our specialist will ensure you do not go overboard. You want your Botox to look natural and make you look younger, more refreshed.     Did you know we have opened a new location?   D SPA KINGSWAY/ETOBICOKE 4242 Dundas Street West Etobicoke, Ontario     Text to book your appointment today (416) 835-4809!  
How To Get Summer To You More Quickly

How To Get Summer To You More Quickly

For those of you who don’t have the luxury of living by a summer California beach, you understand the winter is a very difficult time to look cute, and apparently winter is not going anywhere quickly. When it’s -30 and it feels like you’re in an icy wind tunnel, the last thing on your mind is probably your beauty routine. But don’t lose hope! It is still possible to be fabulous in the winter! Here are some winter beauty tips to help you get and keep beautiful all winter long!
  1. Make those hot showers quick!
When I was in school I used to have to walk half an hour uphill in snowstorms to get home. All I wanted was a scalding hot shower and maybe 12 Christmas cookies to make me feel better as soon as I got home. While it feels wonderful, a long hot shower is awful for your skin. Too long in the heat breaks down the fatty acids in your skin that hold moisture and leave your skin dry. Try to be in the shower for no more than 15 minutes or turn the heat down a bit to save your skin.
  1. Sunscreen
Sounds crazy I know, you thought sunscreen was reserved for those lucky women still in their bikinis on the beach. Not true! Just because you can’t feel your toes doesn’t mean UVA and UVB rays are not reaching your skin. Especially when being reflected off all that snow, the suns rays can still be very harmful! Now I’m not saying you need to lather your whole body in SPF 60 everyday, but try to pick a moisturizer or foundation with at least SPF 30. This will keep your skin undamaged and reduce the incidence of wrinkles.
  1. Sunless Tanner
I know I just said the sun was still out in the winter, but it isn’t reaching behind my ten layers of sweaters through the winter. If you want to keep tan all winter long (that backless New Years dress is calling your name!) I would recommend a great sunless tanner. This isn’t the 80’s (or wherever Donald Trump shops), sunless tanner will not make you look like an Oompa Loompa. Get a great buildable formula and make sure to do a test patch first to make sure you like how the colour develops on your skin. Contrary to popular belief, sunless tanner is not just a layer of fake colour, most contain the active ingredient dihydroxyacetone that changes the outer pigments of your skin temporarily (don’t worry, it’s safe!). Check some reviews and find out what is best for you. I’m partial to St. Tropez or Loving Tan. But the biggest tip of all is skip the tanning bed! You might look sun-kissed for a week, but in the future, it causes wrinkly leather-like skin and possibly fatal health consequences!
  1. Oil Hair Treatments
When hair is exposed to the elements it often becomes dry and brittle. For a little boost use a warm olive or coconut oil mask on your hair. Just leave it in for 15 minutes and shampoo! A cheap and easy fix to those frizzy winter locks! So, if the weather outside is frightful your beauty can still be oh so delightful! Follow some of these tips to keep you radiant all winter long.
BEAUTY IN THE WINK OF AN EYE

BEAUTY IN THE WINK OF AN EYE

We have a new lash lift treatment and it will actually change your lash game: KERATIN LASH LIFT TREATMENT / YUMI LASHES An innovative technique that increases the length, curve and thickness of your lashes; filling them in with proteins, vitamins and pigments. A powerful alternative to lash extensions that enhances your own natural lashes.
  • The YUMI Lash effect lasts between 4-8 weeks, which is the natural life cycle of an eyelash.
  • The treatment has many anti-ageing qualities.
  • YUMI Tint deposits pigment into your lashes. Wide range of tints available to enhance any eye colour.
  • Unlike other less advanced products, the YUMI Lash effect actually lasts until your lash sheds naturally.

THE YUMI PROCESS: Performed in several steps with application of various components. Sugar based eyelash glue affixes the eyelashes to the silicone. Next, we create a bend (from easy to extreme). Then, your eyelashes are coated with vitamins, proteins and pigment (color intensity is chosen by the client). Finish the procedure with nourishing oil In order to work with the brand you need to be trained by the official representative of YUMI Lashes, so you can also rest assured that you’re dealing with a professionally trained technician. RESULTS:
  • Your eyelashes are significantly longer and thicker, due to the nourishment they have received from the treatment.
  • Eyelashes look as though you just applied a fresh coat of glossy mascara.

How To Prepare For Summer With Laser!

How To Prepare For Summer With Laser!

The summer is coming. That is right. I know it is hard to believe but it is and you want to be prepared. The most important thing is to jump on your laser hair removal early so you are ready for the summer. Here’s 5 reasons why you should definitely consider jumping on your laser hair removal treatment for the summer!
  1. Laser hair removal treatments are quicker than you might expect. For example, it only takes 20 minutes to perform a treatment on the underarm and Brazilian area.
  2. You will save money in the long run. With the permanent reduction of hair, you no longer need to purchase endless razors, shaving cream, depilatory creams, and you will no longer need to have monthly waxing appointments. The cost of laser hair removal has decreased as the cost of waxing has increased. The results are far superior to waxing and the cost, over time, is much less.
  3. You can eliminate and prevent ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal is simply the best option and the only solution to prevent and eliminate ingrown hairs. It is also a great option for those who have sensitive skin and experience skin irritation from shaving and waxing.
  4. You will save time. Laser hair removal eliminates the need to shave daily. Add that up over a lifetime and just think how many weeks you spend with a razor in hand! Some research shows that the average woman will spend 75 days in a lifetime getting rid of that unwanted hair!
  5. No need to grow hair between treatments. Unlike waxing, you can shave between treatments. Say goodbye to the days of having to grow your hair out; with laser hair removal, you can shave as much as you like between sessions.
  Remember when choosing a clinic as an option to look at how reputable the clinic and technician is; happy clients mean a happy experience. Go somewhere that offers a free consultation and meet the technician. Checking out the facility and putting a face to the name  so you can ensure you are going to a clean, comfortable environment. Lastly GET A Patch test! Everyone has different hair and skin types make sure you are a good candidate for the treatment! The benefits of laser versus other forms of hair removal are abundantly clear. As the costs of treatment decrease, we no longer need to deliberate the pros and cons of this solution.   Contact Ooh La Lash today to book your free consultation!

How To Keep Your Lashes Looking Fab Longer

How To Keep Your Lashes Looking Fab Longer

Everyone wants to get the most out of their lashes and their money, and we get it. So, we compiled a short list of small things you can do to keep your lashes looking as fresh as possible for the longest amount of time.
  • Do not brush your lashes for 24 hours after application. We brush them for you during application to ensure only the strongest lashes stay adhered to your own lashes. After completion we will brush them aggressively to ensure they look just right and dry the correct way. Let them fully dry before brushing them again.
  • Shower before you come visit us. We don’t appreciate your body odor. Kidding! Showering before you come to see us prevents you from showering immediately when you get home. Try to wait 24-48 hours after you get your lashes done to shower or wash your face.
  • Avoid tanning beds, saunas, steam rooms or anything with intense heat for 24 hours until after your lashes dry.
  • Do not touch your lashes while they are drying. You wouldn’t touch your nails while they were drying, would you? Same goes for your lashes.
  • Do not put make up on for at least 24 hours, if you can wait, then 48 hours. So, if you know you are going out Friday, come see us Wednesday or first thing Thursday morning. The oils from your makeup will damage the lashes and glue. As well as when you wash your face, it can damage your lashes.
  • When you do wash your face after 24-48 hours, do not aggressively rub your lashes when wet.
  • Avoid sleeping on your face. We know this can be hard, so if you are a side sleeper – we sell masks that can protect your lashes as well as block out any unwanted light.
  • Your natural lashes have a life span of 45 days depending on all the factors listed above. The more makeup you wear, how often you wash your face, etc will cause your natural lashes to shed more. So, it is important to keep up to date with your lash fills.
If you have any questions or concerns – don’t hesitate to ask your lash technician before your application, during or after.
