Beauty Hacks

Do you feel and look your best today? Are you ready for a fun weekend full of events with friends? If not, that’s okay: we’re here to help. The team at Bella Vita is armed with beauty hacks and tricks to improve your look effortlessly. Here are three things to keep in mind before you walk out the door.

How to Create the Perfect Messy Bun

The team at Makeup.com created a guide for creating a messy bun in three steps. The secret to a perfect bun is teasing. Teasing your hair will give it the volume you want along with a messy texture. Without teasing your hair, your bun will just look unintentionally messy — which is the fastest way to the worst-dressed list.

Another messy bun secret is to bobby pin your hair a few inches away from the ends, instead of close to the ends to prevent them from flying away. These loose ends will move naturally to create a messy effect.

If the bun isn’t messy enough, gently pull it apart or pull out a few strands until you’re happy with the results.

How to Make Your Skin Look Hydrated and Healthy

Going into the weekend, does your skin look dry and flaky? If you need hydration fast, look at your diet: throw out your sugary sodas and drink more water. Replace dessert with fresh fruit, and try to add some avocado to your lunch. If your skin reflects what’s going on inside, it could be sending your message that it needs nutrients.

If the inside isn’t what’s triggering the dryness, look at your skin regime. Try to choose natural soaps that won’t peel away natural oils and turn down your water temperature. By taking a gentle approach to your face, you’re letting natural oils hydrate your pores.

How to Make Your Hair Look Amazing Before a Major Event

If you have a major event coming up like a wedding or birthday and want your hair to look amazing, stop by the salon for a quick trim. You don’t have to sacrifice length, as most stylists will only remove about half an inch or less when they’re cleaning up your cut.

Your hair is constantly fighting the elements and it’s easy for your ends to get frayed, dried out, and faded. This is a quick way to freshen your look without undergoing a major transformation!
