School Ball Season is Upon Us

School Ball season is here.  This means dresses, shoes, hair and makeup, nails, tanning and lots more primping and priming for their big evening.  I often refer to school balls as mini weddings, especially with how much things can cost.

So I thought I would put together a few tips that will help you with your hair, skin and nails, so they look the best, without having to spend a fortune on it.

Healthy Skin

Keeping your skin blemish free, would be most teenage girls first requirements.  Heres a few tips to help with your skin:

  • Reduce Sugar
  • Stop touching your face, this spreads oils etc
  • Drink lots of water
  • Exfoliate every week
  • Keep your skin Clean
  • Reduce the amount of makeup you wear

Using a good skin care is always going to do good things for your skin.  So I always recommend using a good skin care and sunscreen from a young age.

Healthy Hair

Having shiny hair is something most of us want, but very hard to achieve.  Coconut oil is amazing for all things for your body, but about once a week I use that as a treatment.  Apply on dry hair, tie it in a bun, pop a towel on your pillow and head off to the land of nod.  When you wake, shampoo and condition as per usual (you may need to do an extra shampoo to get the oil out completely).  

Regular hair treatments, over time will help restore the condition of your hair.  Also, reducing the usage of heating tools will help restore the condition of your hair.

Healthy Nails

Healthy nails comes down to one thing, cuticle oil.  This simply is the best thing you can do for your nails.  It promotes strength and flexibility, which means your nails will bend rather than snapping.  I suggest using this twice a day for healthy nails.

Keeping your nails tidy and one length will help keep your nails from having a wee break.  

Push back your cuticles a few times a week, after you have had a hot shower.

We have you covered for your School ball hair and makeup, your nails and tanning requirements for your school ball.  This is located in my salon Verdo Parnell at 245 Parnell Road Parnell Auckland.
