New Hair Trend: Sombre Highlights

Lower lighting is the hair trend that never seems to end.  This year take it up a notch with "Sombre Highlights." Unlike Ombre highlights Sombre highlights mimic a faded look with highlights added around the face and a much more gradual descent into a brighter shade of your natural hair color.  The more polished look is awesome for redheads, blondes and brunettes.  It also ideal for taking your summer hair into winter.

For example, a simple but trendy snakeskin heel or a clutch to make you look fierce for a night out!

Restoration Weekend

Founded by Michelle Hargrove in 2007, Restoration Weekend is a one-of-a-kind 4 day, 3 night, luxury weekend of serenity, reconnection, and personal revival for women who need to “restore” themselves from the many hats they wear as busy wives, mothers, caregivers and career women. Designed for the busy, over-extended woman who often gives more than she takes, the purpose of Restoration Weekend is to educate, empower and restore women as dynamic influences in our society. During this time of restoration, 40 women from all walks of life and various parts of the country, are inspired, uplifted and empowered by industry leaders, events and sessions focused on business, psychology, nutrition, spirituality, finances, and physical maintenance. Restoration Weekend attendees also have the opportunity to participate in Restoring Hope™, a service project to give back to the community, typically involving school aged children. Restoration Weekend this year was in Turks & Caicos!

For the second year in a row, Indique's Pro Stylist, Gabrielle Corney joined by Celebrity Makeup Artist DeeDee Kelly and Celebrity Hair & Makeup Artist, Chris Gees, all participated in the "Restore the Glam" segment. Gabrielle styled a gorgeous participant with Indique's PURE Wavy U-Part!

Many of the ladies said that "The Restoring The Glam" was their favorite part of the weekend. There were many tears of joy!

Get A Bouncy Blowout

Yes, you can get a smooth, voluminous salon-worthy look right at home!
Here are some steps on how to get your bouncy blowout:

1. After you have washed your hair apply a conditioning primer spray from roots to end.
2. Using your fingers, dry your hair until its damp. But focus mainly on the roots. If you have curly hair you can skip this step.
3. Starting at the nape of your neck and working up, blow-dry your hair in 2 sections: Wrap each a round brush and bend ends under for movement.
4. Roll sections of hair into loops after blow drying. Be sure to secure them with clips and let them cool before unclipping.
5. For face-framing sections, hold the brush vertically and roll in as you blow-dry. Then remove the clips and tousle with fingers.
After following these steps, your blowout should be bouncy and voluminous!
