4th of July Fashion and Beauty: Celebrate In Style
It’s that time of year again when many people get together with family and friends for 4th of July blowout celebrations. So do you have your summertime best ready to go? Many of these parties are held outdoors so how do you get fashion ready and beauty wise to look your absolute best? Here are a few tips and tricks to make yourself look as spectacular as the fireworks you’ll see on the 4th of July. Alright, that might be pushing it, but you’ll at least look as good as a homemade apple pie.
Obviously you want to wear a bit of your patriot best, so get out your red, white, and blue. Many stores such as Target or Old Navy have some pretty cute t-shirts, and hats that will help you celebrate the day in style. Even if you aren’t a lover of those three colors, you can add a pop of red in some brightly colored red espadrilles, or sandals. Even red flip flops can add some pizazz to your outfit. Or tie a blue bow around a floppy straw hat for extra style points. Summer is a time to be relaxed about your fashion, and have some fun with it. Bright accessories can be a neat way to jazz up your ensemble.
Frizz Free Hair Must Do’s For Your Do
Humidity in the summertime can cause anyone hair to be a frizzy, silly mess. So prep your hair right from the time you get out of the shower to be frizz free. Using the right products that contain silicones to smooth the hair shaft can help temper frizz along the hair cuticle. When your hair is dripping wet from the shower, both gentle with a cloth not a towel since that roughs up the hair shaft even more. Then apply your frizz fighting cream, and a humidity fighting gel or mousse to help your hair’s natural texture be its very best.
Or if you have just completely had it with your hair, throw it up in a slicked back bun for a chic easy style. Comb some gel through, pull tightly back with a hair band, wrap into a bun and secure with a bobby pin. If you have a decorative pin that’s even better for a little added style.
The sun is not your friend. You might love it, want to bask in it, and look forward to the summer months, but keep in mind you have to protect your skin if you want to guard against premature aging, sun spots, and uneven texture. A lightweight sunblock of at least an SPF 30 is recommend for incidental sun exposure, but go higher if you are going to be outside for an extended period of time. You need what amount to a shotglass full of sunblock for your whole body, so don’t skimp on protection this time of year. Your skin will thank you later.
