Pantone Color Report Spring 2015 – Titanium & Glacier Grey by andreas-beau

Titanium, a warm brown/grey, and Glacier Grey, a cool and pale blue/grey, might seem like odd choices for a Spring Women’s collection. We find it refreshing, like a cool drink of water on a hot summer day. Highlight these colors with geometric pattern shorts (accent the warm Titanium with cooler colors from the report, like the bright Custard shown here). A simple plain tank in Glacier Grey with strap cut-outs to amp up the linear aspects. Finally highlight the coolness of the Grey and add a bit of feminine glamour with some glitzy gems, like these jeweled sandals and the Haya Jewel Stone Soft Headband in Pewter by Andrea’s Beau

Summer Hair Tips

Before you wear your beautiful hair ornaments from Andrea’s Beau, here are a few hair tips to keep your locks healthy and lush in the summer months.

Prevent frizz by using a paper towel to gently wring water from your strands post-shower, suggests Adir Abergel, Fekkai celebrity stylist. “The paper won’t create as much friction as a towel, so your hair ends up less frizzy. It also absorbs more water than a cloth towel, really speeding up your drying time,” he explains.

Spray dry shampoo on a bobby pin before sliding it into an updo, suggests Mark Townsend, a consultant for Dove Haircare and a Los Angeles–based stylist with many A-list clients. The spray’s powdery texture gives the pin extra grip, which keeps it from sliding out.

Rheanna-Gemma-HB

It’s a myth that unwashed hair takes dye better than squeaky-clean strands, says Jennifer J, an L.A.-based colorist who has tinted Julia Roberts’s tresses. In fact, your colorist needs to see your actual color in order to determine the most flattering hue for you (and product buildup can make your mane look darker). So before your next appointment, suds up.

Fight multiple sclerosis with Andrea’s Beau!

At Andrea’s Beau, we care about giving back to our community and supporting those who need it the most. Our company has partnered with the National Capital Chapter of the MS Society to help people in the DC area that have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Our founder, Andrea Chafetz, has a personal connection to this cause because her close friend, Kathy Wenger, has been diagnosed with MS. Learn more about Kathy’s story below.
unnamed-1
Can you tell us about your personal story surrounding MS?
I was misdiagnosed in 2002 when I first had symptoms of my right foot dragging when I walked and  numbness over most of my body this lasted for about three months before I saw a doctor. Four years later I had similar symptoms only worse, after an MRI  I was diagnosed definitively with MS. I have been giving myself a daily shot of Copaxone for eight and half years since that diagnosis.  Unfortunately,   I have most all the poor side affects from the shot; however, I want to be able to keep walking and the shots help prevent relapses.  I now take the new Copaxone medicine shot given three times a week.  The lesions on my brain and spine have increased  since I was first diagnosed which is to be expected with MS.    I have not had a major relapse only minor issues like my balance is challenged and my fingers become numb often now.
What do you hope the MS Society can accomplish to help people with MS?
I hope the MS Society can raise funds to do both research to find a cure and support local educational programs for people with MS and their caregivers.
What can people do locally to help support this cause?
People can donate either their time to help with implementing the local MS walks or bike rides and if possible they could donate funds for research or do both!
What inspires and motivates you?
Gathering together with friends and loved ones and being in nature especially if it is by the water or in the mountains.
Any life advice for young women and girls?
The following are all sayings and expressions  that I think ring true:
A.  Do well by doing good.
B.  ”People will forget what you said.  People will forget what you did; but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
C.  Five simple rules to be happy:
      1. Free your heart from hatred.
      2. Free your mind from worries.
      3. Live simply.
      4. Give more.
      5. Expect less.

New Year’s Beauty Resolutions

Hello Gorgeous!

With the new year, you can reinvent yourself and hope for the best year possible. We’ve complied a list of our favorite beauty resolutions. Which ones are you committing to?

Photo Credit: Pinterest

Resolution #1

Throw out your makeup sponge after every use (or at least once a week). You can buy a 32-pack of makeup sponges for less than a Starbucks coffee.

Resolution #2

Wash your face every night before bed (or at least keep cleansing wipes on your nightstand).

Resolution #3

Floss. Daily. Did you know that brushing alone only cleans about 65 percent of your teeth? That’s right, flossing daily will clean the other 35 percent your toothbrush misses.

Resolution #4

Get rid of your mascara every six months—it’s a breeding ground for bacteria! If you notice a change in smell throw it out sooner.

 Resolution #5

Change your moisturizer to one that has an SPF. Already use one? Use a heavier moisturizer in the winter to protect your skin.
