Are you feeling uninspired and stunted in that nine-to-five career that’s slowly taking you nowhere? They say that change is as good as a holiday. They also say that one should always turn their passion into their career – and they are spot-on. Long gone are the days of choosing a job for money alone. Today, people thrive on quality of life, and if you want to become a massage therapist, nail technologist, hairstylist or wedding makeup artist, now is the time to make a change!
If you’re like most people today, you’ve recently realised that life is too short to spend it in a career doing something you loathe for the rest of your life. Sure, the money might pay the bills, but are you happy? Wouldn’t it be better to have a job, like hairstyling, that makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning instead of waking up with a knot in your stomach, dreading the next nine hours in the office?
Do you see all those stunning models in all those top high-fashion magazines sporting flawless skin with perfectly contoured noses, cheekbones, and smoky eyes? Whether you aspire to become a mobile makeup artist or somewhat “green” to makeup artistry, you can also learn to make yourself or your clients look “magazine beautiful”. The power of makeup is undeniable. To master it, however, you must learn how to apply it.
You’ve probably heard many people say that if you have a migraine, massage the pressure point between your thumb and index finger. It is true. The human body has 7 200 nerve endings in the feet, 5 000 nerve endings on the hands, and 435 in each ear. If you squeeze your heel, it relieves lower-back body stress tension. If you place your thumb into your arch, it aids the adrenal glands and pancreas. That is why there is nothing more relaxing than putting your feet up after a tough day and getting a pair of hands to give them a good rub. It relaxes the body and eases the mind. It is healing.
Going through change this winter, or maybe you’re desperate for a transformation? They say that change is as good as a holiday, which is true, and one of the best ways to achieve this is a new hairstyle. Your hair is a defining characteristic, with the power to transform and command. Your mane is your crowning glory and an expression of your personality, style, mood, age, and attitude. Whether you’re looking to shake things up this winter or give your hair a break from summer damage, check out these easy winter hairstyling trends below.
Ever since Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne bust into the fashion scene with their big, bold arches, women of all ages went through a wake-up call, realising their squiggly pencil-thin brows and high arches did them little favour. However, perfectly shaped brows do not just happen naturally, and like everything in life – one size does not fit all.
Over the past thousand years, we have gone from foraging plants as medicine to depending on Big Pharma to heal. However, over the past several years, we are witnessing the return of alternative medicine and therapies. The reasons are: patients want less invasive, non-chemical treatments—and alternative healing requires zero surgeries and drugs.
Are you feeling tempted to shave your head out of frustration? As an expression of your personality, style, mood, age and attitude, your crown plays a crucial role in knocking years off your face. But it has been a long and beautiful hot summer, and you have put your mane through the wringer. You over-washed, straightened, relaxed, blow-dried, curled and coloured your locks so much that it is dry and limp with a bit of thinning on top.
Stuck with a rogue set of bushy brows and in need of some weed whacking, or maybe you’ve gotten way too friendly with your tweezers, leaving you with thin, over-plucked arches that make you feel unattractive. Eyebrows are one of the most prominent facial features because of the many functions they perform. A well-groomed set of brows not only knocks off years, but it is the easiest way to flaunt your favourite features.
