We all love the look of a full head of volumenous loose curls but sometimes ya just don't feel like putting in all the work, yes even us hairstylists! Try this lazy girl hack for effortless date night curls. Gather all of your hair from the back and make a ponytail at the front of your head (like REALLY in the front). Figure out where you would like to part your hair; to the side, middle, etc. If your hair is going to be parted down the middle section your pony right down the middle, if it was parted on the left the right side would have more hair, and so on. Then with a 1" curling iron, wrap the curls away from your face until your whole ponytail is curled. Wait a minute for the curls to cool, remove your pony and shake your curls out and fix into place with a flexible hold hairspray!

There are some things in masks that you put on your face then wonder what the heck does that ingredient do? With this DIY acne face mask there are only 3 ingreadients and the ALL make perfect sense to me! You can try this mask whether you have acne or not it wont hurt you, still leaving you a nourished glowing face! Here's the recipe!
INGREDIENTS : Uncoated asprin, honey, and water.
DIRECTIONS ; Take 4 of the asprin and place them in a bowl, then add 2 tablespoons of water and let them dissolve. Once the asprin is fully dissolved, add in a tablespoon of honey and mix very well. Since the asprin is what helps beakout because asprin is an antiinflamatory. When applying the mask you may put it on the affected areas and that's it or you can put it on your entire face. Either method you chose, let it sit for 15 minutes and then rinse with warm water!

I think that most of us probably sleep with a cotton pillow case, but there are so many benefits to switching to slik or satin. Not only is it better for your skin but it does wonders for your hair! Cotton steals moisture from your hair, it's more likely to cause bed head, and is much harsher on your hair causing damage and split ends. It doesnt seem like it would make a lot of difference but your head rests there for (hopefully) eight hours every night so it really does add up!
