Conair Infiniti Pro Straightener – Pro or No?

image1Our hair expert and OUAI Canadian Educator, Alysse, tested out the Conair Infiniti Pro Straightener and we just had to ask her about it!

Here are her answers:

Q: What are your favourite features of this product?

A: The number one thing was that it heated up quickly and was simple to use! I personally loved how it left some movement in my hair as opposed to making it pin straight and lifeless. My models also loved how it didn’t pull and made their hair feel silky and shiny.

Q: Who would you recommend this product to?

A: I would recommend this product to a variety of hair types however, if you have very kinky roots this product is not for you. The straightener doesn’t get close enough to smooth them out. I would say the target market is the girl on-the-go. It heats up quickly and smooths out hair giving you a polished look in minutes.

Q: Would you use this on a daily basis?

A: I would definitely use this on a daily basis. It’s always good to have easy-to-use products on hand to make mornings less stressful! Not to mention, if it makes my models happy I really can’t complain!

Q: Overall, do you give this product your stamp of approval?

A: Yes! It surprised me. I didn’t think I would like it as much as I did! I would definitely recommend trying the Conair Infiniti Pro Straightener.

Thanks Alysse!

If you’re always on-the-go but don’t want to sacrifice your beauty routine, the Conair Pro Infiniti straightener may be the perfect tool to add to your belt.

Try it out and let us know what you think of the Conair Infiniti Pro Straightener!

2013 Teen Choice Awards – Best Beauty looks.

We loved seeing the Young Hollywood starlets emphasizing their best feature’s with such fresh-faced looks at this year’s Teen Choice Awards. Here are a few of our favourite Beauty looks from the Blue Carpet.

Lucy-Hale-Houghton-2013-Teen-Choice-Awards-hair-and-makeup-600x787

Teen Choice Awards host, Lucy Hale  definitely plays up on the “less is more” phrase.  We both agree that it’s what’s under her makeup that’s making this look really pop.

Get the look:

Skin: Preparation is everything. Get in the routine of proper cleansing and moisturizing. Also, don’t forget to exfoliate at least twice a week to slough off any dead skin cells and let your skin reveal it’s healthy glow.

To smooth the skin start by applying a primer (we like Laura Mercier). Apply a  tinted moisturizer for light and sheer coverage followed by a light dusting of loose powder. Finish the look with a spritz of  hydration mist. This will keep skin healthy and flawless all day/night long.

Hair: Start by parting hair with a tail comb (follow the arch point of your brow), take one inch sections of hair and wrap around a curling rod directing pieces away from your face. After curling set with a touchable spray such as Healthy Sexy hair spray – soy touchable.

Crystal-Reed-in-Carolina-Herrera-2013-Teen-Choice-Awards-4-600x782

 We’re loving Crystal Reed’s  voluminous blow out, bare face with a bolder brow and pop of color on the lips. A perfect pairing with this black and white patterned CH Carolina Herrera pant suit.

Get the look:

Brows: Try Dior’s Brow Styler in Universal Brown. Apply in light strokes and comb through to intensity.

Lips: Try NARS semi matte  in Jungle Red

Hair: For voluminous locks like Crystal’s, wash hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner, followed by a few drops of hair oil to protect, soften and boost shine.  Blow dry tresses and finish off by sprinkling Kevin Murphy Powder Puff Volumizing Powder  at the roots to create volume and texture. Remember less is more!

Miley+Cyrus+Teen+Choice+Awards+2013+Press+rFdogscsn0sl

This girl can rock any look but we particularly loved Miley’s gorgeous contoured cheeks, bold eyes and soft peachy lip. As for her hair — it’s growing on us … we think 😉

Get the look:

Cheeks: For Miley’s matte contoured bronzer try Tarte’s Amazonian clay matte mineral bronzer with Glo Minerals angled blush brush. This dense angled brush will give you that sharp chiseled cheekbone look.

Eyeliner: Miley loves “tight lining” (a technique used under the lash line for a natural but defined look). This is best achieved with a soft pencil liner such as,  Mac’s ‘Engraved’ black eyeliner on the top and bottom lash line and slightly smoke it out with a smudge brush.

Lips: We suggest Mac’s ‘Naked’ lipliner with Chanel’s 114 PRÉCIEUSE lipstick for a soft finish.

Unknown-7

Straight hair is making a comeback! Selena’s sleek hair was paired with a subtle cat eye and light pink lip which complimented her turquoise Neil Lane earrings and sexy green dress perfectly.

Get the look:

Eyes: For Selena’s dramatic eyes line the entire upper lash-line with a black creme liner such as Tarte’s Amazonian clay Waterproof liner in black

Skin: Warm up your face with a bronzer. Contouring your cheeks and temples for a little added definition. Try NARS bronzer in Laguna.

Lastly, we just had to add a link to Ashton Kutcher’s acceptance speech. If you haven’t seen it, click the link and take a few minutes to watch it. Very inspiring and not one to miss.

The Beauty Team loves analyzing these Starlit’s Beauty looks.

We’re excited to see what next year’s Teen Choice Award’s has in store (beauty-wise that is).

On Set with Rent Frock Repeat

A few months ago The Beauty Team  teamed up with Rent Frock Repeat to work on their Summer look book. We instantly fell in love with this Canadian business. What a brilliant idea, giving ladies access to designer gowns that they can rent at a fraction of the price. I mean, how many times have you purchased a new dress for an event and then left it to sit in your closet and never be worn again!?

Lisa Delorme and Kristy Wieber, the ladies behind RfR believe “style is more then just investing. It’s about experimenting, trying new looks and having fun. It’s time to say goodbye to having lots of clothes but nothing to wear, and hello to always having the perfect frock for all of life’s special occasions”

Screen-Shot-2013-07-22-at-11.50.08-PM

If you’re indecisive, not to worry RfR offers over the phone and in studio consultations to ensure you end up with the perfect frock.

The process is quite simple. Register online at: www.rentfrockrepeat.com, fill out your profile (including sizes, favourite designers and colours). Then browse your favourite frocks, pick your size (and backup size) and select the date you would like your dress to arrive. Lastly,  simply click rent to complete your transaction.

Upon your return date simply put both dresses back (no need to dry clean, they even take care of this!) in the prepaid envelope and drop it off at your nearest post office.

From now until late August, RfR has partnered with The Beauty Team for our seasonal Beauty Bonus. Get $25 off your first rental. Also, if you mention RfR when inquiring for any Beauty Service (excluding retail) through The Beauty Team we are offering 20% off bookings from now until August 23rd.
