Soft Sexy Waves Hairstyle

As part of the latest hair trends for Fall 2012, we’re seeing lots of soft and loose hairstyles. One of the hairstyles we are in love with this season is soft sexy waves! Here’s how you can achieve this look at home:

  • Begin by sqeezing a dime size amount of heat protective milk to ensure your hair comes out silky soft. We recommend using Ciment Thermique by Kerastase. It protects your hair and leaves it shiny and smooth.
  • Take 1 inch sections of your hair and wrap them around the barrel of a 1 1/2 inch curling iron. Try not to curl approximately the top 5 inches of your hair. This will give your hair a relaxed look.  Hold each section for about 7 seconds and release.
  • Continue curling all sections of your hair, but make sure you are curling them all in the same direction.
  • Make a side part in your hair (whichever side you think makes you look more fabulous).
  • Spray with hairspray all over to ensure it lasts all day! For a long lasting finish, we prefer Double Force Control Ultime by Kerastase.

Why cavemen had great skin: Mother Nature at its Best (Losanika)

I know you weren’t there to see it, but image a cave person. Have you ever seen them with acne? The only skin problem they had was excessive hair growth. Too bad laser hair removal did not exist back then. Why do you think their skin was in good condition? Because all they had available to them were products of mother nature. They only had organic plants and herbs.

Losanika Natural Biocosmetics is based on the same concept. This company, based out of Colombia, South America (where the some of the best coffee comes from), has been around for over 9 years creating organic skin care products. Losanika features Coffee Fluid Scrubs, Mousturizing Biogels, Milk Cleansers/Mousturizers, Coffee Peels, Yogurt Masks, Fruit Acid Peels, Depigmentation Creams, Skin Conditioning Aromatherapy Gels, Nourishing & Firming Creams, as well as Body Washes & Shampoos, etc..


Depending on what product you use, there are achievable results for everyone. Including:

  • Cleansing
  • Mousturizing
  • Impurity elimination
  • Pore opening
  • Providing of nutrients
  • Effectiveness against free radicals
  • Protection from environmental damage
  • Make up removal
  • Natural antibiotic
  • Antioxidants/vitamins
  • Elimination of dryness
  • Toxin removal
  • Reduced of oil production
  • Reduced signs of aging

Before humans intervened into the natural process that mother nature had going, people were taking advantage of natural resources and were achieving great results. If you are against using chemicals for your skin, then organic products are the right choice for you.

Euphora Salon & Medi Spa in Astoria, NY is a proud carrier of Losanika products.

From Pad See Ew to Thai Massage

After having some magically delicious Thai food yesterday, I had the idea to write about another amazing thing this culture has inspired–Thai Massages. Generally, when you think of massages you picture being oiled up and having the masseuse run his or her hands all over your body for maximum relaxation purposes. Not with this massage!

Dating back 2,500 years to India, the Buddha himself was given such massages by his physician. That alone lets you know it must be good.

What is it like?

Expect to lay out on a mat on the floor (fully dressed in comfy clothes). A Thai Massage can be most closely described as “yoga without the work”. The therapist uses his or her hands, feet, knees, and legs to perform various yoga-like stretches on your body as you are laying down. Other forms of relaxation used during this massage include joint mobilization, acupressure, and muscle compression. Thai massages are definitely more energizing and rigorous than your classic forms of massage and lasts anywhere from 60 minutes to two hours.

Keep in mind that this massage is not for certain people and that there are some precautions.
