Get The Hair You’ve Always Wanted With Lime Crime

If you’ve ever wanted to dye your hair a glorious shade of pink, purple or maybe even blue or green then you should check out Lime Crime and their product called Unicorn Hair.

 

Whether you want full coverage or to just add a tint of color to your hair, Lime Crime’s Unicorn Hair comes in 13 beautiful shades and is completely vegan. Vegan hair color contains no ammonia, no peroxide and won’t cause any damage to your hair. Unicorn Hair is also cruelty-free, which means no animals have been harmed or tested on.

 

The colors range from pink to gray and there’s even a shade of orange that pays tribute to a character in the movie The Fifth Element. It is semi- permanent hair color and if you’re wondering how long it will last, well, that depends on how well you care for your hair. It is stated to last up to 6 weeks if you’re a cautious hair-washer. If you’re looking for full coverage it is recommended that you bleach your hair prior to applying the full coverage version. If you’re looking to just tint your hair over the color you have now then you can do that too without the damage of bleaching.

 

Lime Crime has also made this hair color very affordable, coming in at $16 a jar for almost 7 ounces. That means provided how long your hair is you could probably get more than one use out of a jar.

 

If you want just one hair color or choose to give yourself mermaid hair (they also have a shade named Dirty Mermaid, FYI) and use more than one color Lime Crime’s Unicorn Hair sounds like a perfect choice! Vegan, cruelty-free, no damage…what more could you ask for in a hair color? I highly recommend checking it out.

Trying Lime Crime’s Unicorn Dye for the First Time

Finally after waiting for what seemed like an eternity, I know less than a week is fairly short of an eternity, but waiting for a package definitely has a real effect on time, scientists might want to get on that, my order from LimeCrime arrived in the mail. Though for my credit this has been a long time to come, seeing that Lime Crime first teased of their new product line with a tempting coming soon several months ago.

 

So finally after weeks of preparing my hair for my first outing with my favorite indie makeup company‘s newest product, I set about to transform my hair into the perfect expression of unicorn colored freedom.

 

As Lime Crime has quite a few available colors in their Unicorn Hair Dye line I had to choose two for the moment being, though that will be a separate blog post, coming soon…, for my first time I went with Leeloo, a shout out to one of sci-fi’s leading ladies, and anime as I’ve been wanting to try something completely new with my hair and needed to change it up from red.

 

Trying Leeloo Out and Twisting my Hair with Anime

 

So ever the impulsive person, I opted to try both out at the same time for an anime twist on the traditional Leeloo look.

 

Immediately after opening the container I can tell the Unicorn Hair Dye is a bit different from a couple of the other brands I would use before, noticeably the dye doesn’t have a strong smell causing me to do my dye job in a wind tunnel or suffer watery eyes.

 

Fast forward two hours later and one shower turned into an avant-garde installation and I finally got to look at my new hair coloring. Right off the bat, I notice that my hair feels softer which considering the coloring is a new and welcomed experience.

 

I’ll post some photos of my new look soon…

How Kate Hudson Built Fabletics Into A Highly Successful Brand

Fabletics is an innovative clothing brand and e-retailer that was started in a partnership between actress Kate Hudson and TechStyle Group. The brand is focused on women’s activewear that is fashionable and can be worn all day. The idea of the brand came to Kate Hudson when she was wondering why women’s activewear was so expensive and how it could be provided at less cost to consumers. The brand has proven to be very successful and uses a membership program in order to encourage repeat business.

Recently, Fabletics has been expanding into the world of brick and mortar with retail stores being opened across the United States. Most retail stores consider showrooming to be a huge problem. Showrooming is the term used when a consumer looks and feels products in a store but then buys it at a different retailer online for less cost. At Fabletics stores, they feature what they call reserve showrooming. The company doesn’t care if women buy their clothes, which is exclusive to this brand, in the stores or at their online site. When a woman tries on a piece of clothing, it even goes into her online shopping cart so she can conveniently but it from there if she so chooses.

As a membership model company, Fabletics encourages women who are making their first purchase take a Lifestyle Quiz. The quiz, easy to complete, lets Fabletics know what they find appealing and fashionable. This gives the member the convenience of having clothing shown to them that is bound to appeal to their tastes rather than having to search for it.

At Fabletics, Kate Hudson has five rules which have led to the tremendous growth of the brand. Her first rule is to develop marketing opportunities. Unlike some of its competition, Fabletics has clothing for every size and shape. Her second rule is to stay hands on which involves her looking at sales numbers on a weekly basis and keeping apprised of what is selling and what isn’t so changes can be made to what Fabletics offers.

Other rules of Kate Hudson’s are to rely on data to make decisions. This data includes the Lifestyle Quiz results which point to broader trends. She also stays inspired which includes working on her mother’s nonprofit, the Hawn Foundation. Finally, she says that in order to achieve you have to believe in yourself and take informed risks.

Jason Halpern Achieves What Other Real Estate Developers are yet to Achieve: Reclaiming Glory in Historic Sites

Jason Halpern in Heavy Industry

Despite being in the real estate industry for only seven years, Jason Halpern has successfully positioned himself as an unstoppable force in the industry. He took the reins of leadership at JMH Development, his family-owned real estate firm, in 2010. Since then, Jason has aided the company to grow exponentially, remaining highly competitive in an industry that has seen many upcoming firms stage a spirited competition against veteran companies. As of now, the company has made investments to the tune of half a billion dollars in cutting-edge projects in and around NYC. Among the most notable projects that JMH has undertaken in the recent past include Townhouses of Cobble Hill and the luxury apartments on 184 Kent.

Jason Halpern: Entrepreneur

Jason has built a legacy for his ability to pick up historic properties, renovate them, and come up with entirely new and sophisticated properties. Some of the historic sites he has put his hands on in the recent past include Motel Ankara and the Surf House

Developing Motel Ankara

Jason Halpern with Team

Jason Halpern led JMH Development in the purchasing of Motel Ankara in 2014. Built in 1954, Motel Ankara was among the most popular historical hotels in southern Miami Beach region. Jason and his team renovated the hotel and opened it in 2015 as Aloft South Beach hotel. The hotel is a mixture of innovation and sophistication. It has more than 230 guestrooms, with each room averaging roughly 360 sq. ft. In September 2016, Jason led JMH to yet another milestone by selling the hotel to Rockpoint Group at an estimated price of $105 million. The Boston-based firm rebranded the hotel to The Gates Hotel South Beach.

Developing the Surf House

Jason Halpern with his Family

JMH Development acquired Surf House in 2015 at an estimated cost of $55 million. The 8995 Collins Avenue condominium was built in 1966 and had eight stories, with about 34 spacious residential units. As part of the purchase deal, JMH assumed ownership of a parking space along 90th Street that can accommodate more than 50 houses and leave ample space for commercial use. After the acquisition, the Jason Halpern- led real estate firm crashed the house down and erected a 12-story condominium. Records of what JMH made after selling out units in the apartment are unavailable, but each unit was valued at about $2.5 million. According to Jason Halpern, the units were designed to provide individuals in need of homes with affordable houses along the Miami Beach.

Involvement in Community Work

Outside of real estate business, Jason makes investments geared towards community empowerment. He is leading investor in the Joel A. Halpern Trauma Center. The facility has talented and highly qualified cardiac surgeons, neurosurgeons, and orthopedic surgeons. Pregnant women and children also receive specialized care and treatment at the facility.

Fabletics For Feeling Good

One of the things that can have an influence on a person’s feelings is her image. When women have something that helps her present the image that she wants, then she is likely to feel more in control. This is perhaps one of the most important things for people when they are dealing with their self image. This is not to say that people who wear clothes that they are not that happy about have issues with their self worth. However, it does help a lot when they are dressed in clothes that they enjoy. This matters in any area of their life.

For people that have decided that they want to find clothes that they can be happy with, it is important for them to find clothing stores that offer them what they are looking for. Every clothing store is different. However, there are some cases where there is hardly any difference in the clothes that are offered in a certain section. One example of this is in the active wear section. For one thing, people who are looking for something unique in the sportswear section is going to be disappointed. Fortunately, efforts have been made to change that for the better.

CMO of Kate Hudson’s athleisure brand Fabletics on retail industry

One of the efforts that have been made to change up the sportswear section is a store called Fabletics. Fabletics is a subscription service. Among the things that people say about the service is that it not only helps people buy clothes at a discount, but it also sends an outfit to the customer for free each month. With Fabletics, the clothing that is sold is active wear, but they have unique designs which bring about a more stylish take on the active wear lines. This brings forth clothes that people could not only wear to a workout, but also to a night out.

One thing that could also be said for Fabletics is that it helps women who wear the clothing feel better about themselves with the designs and the fit of the clothes that they are wearing. One of the aspects of the clothes that make the person feel good is how item feels on them. After all, the style of Fabletics is not just about how the fabric looks. The fabric also has to feel good and bring about some kind of comfort in order for it to be effective for the person’s sense of self worth.

Recap: 10 Hair Tips

YouTube beauty blogger Wengie describes 10 hair “hacks” for her viewers. Her first tip is eating a diet rich in omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin C, and vitamin A, and other nutrients that are good for your hair and scalp, or taking a vitamin that contains these. Wengie’s next tip is to clean your brush often to avoid putting old oils into clean hair. She suggest doing this by using a comb to pull the strands out of the brush, then washing the brush with shampoo.

Next she suggests making your hair look longer and fuller from the back by splitting hair into two ponytails, one on top and one at the nape of your neck. Wengie’s next tip is to apply a hair mask before shampooing to condition it without weighing it down. Wengie suggests using melted coconut oil as a hair mask. Her next hack is to pat hair dry with a t-shirt after a shower. This is better than using a towel, which can cause breakage and frizz. Next she tells viewers to use hairspray on a toothbrush to tame baby hairs when it is tied up. She also suggests spraying it on a makeup brush to tame scalp flyaways and on bobby pins to make them stay in place better.

Wengie’s next tip is to trim split ends at home; she says to twist hair until split ends stick out, then trim them with sharp hairdressing scissors. Her next hack is to get quick waves by putting hair into a ponytail, then curling it into 3 to 8 sections. Next she suggests using dry shampoo, baby powder, or cornstarch before bed for days when you don’t wash your hair. Her final tip is to cut old nylons into DIY gentle hair ties to keep from breaking strands when you sleep.
