Mother's Day is right around the corner and if you're still searching for gift ideas, look no further. Planet Beauty has something for every mom, whether she's into the best anti-aging devices or hottest new fragrances. If you want to give your mom the gift of beauty, check out some of our top picks for Mother's Day gifts.

1. Clarisonic Pedi: If your mom is making an appointment for the nail salon every 2-3 weeks, she'll love the Pedi Sonic Foot Transformation System. The ideal gift for the mom who loves to take care of her pretty feet, this device will help exfoliate rough, dry skin for sandal-ready feet 24/7. With 3 different speeds to choose from, she can customize her foot care regimen. With summer right around the corner, this gift idea will get so much use. (If she's not really into her feet, then you can't go wrong with a regular Clarisonic Cleansing Brush.)

Beauty Trends from Coachella We're Dying to Perfect

Coachella may be over, but we are still obsessing over some of the beauty trends we saw throughout the festival. While some beauty looks are festival-exclusive, there are others that we're dying to perfect before summer's arrival. Check out some of our favorite beauty trends that were all the buzz at Coachella. 

Pastel Hair: Just when we think the pastel hair trend might be going away, another fabulous and lovely celebrity proves us wrong. Julianne Hough sported gorgeous pink hair at Coachella and looked absolutely amazing. If you're feeling tempted to jump on the pastel hair bandwagon, keep a few things in mind. First, consider permament and semi-permanent options. Second, consult a professional colorist to minimize damage and dryness to your cuticle. Lastly, make sure you use a high-quality sulfate free shampoo to retain your color and keep your hair looking healthy. Colure's Richly Moisturize Shampoo and Conditioner is perfect for prolonging hair color and keeping your strands soft and manageable. 

Pixie Haircut Inspiration

Are you playing with the idea of chopping off your locks and sporting a pixie cut? Going for a shorter style can be so liberating, especially if you’ve been wearing the same style for years. Celebrities like Halle Berry and Lena Dunham are no strangers to the pixie style and they both own their look. The beautiful Zendaya recently tested out a gorgeous pixie cut wig at the Grammy’s and looked absolutely stunning. If you’re ready for the real deal, check out some of our favorite recent pixie styles and get inspired before you hit the salon.

You may know Lily Collins for her natural, full brows, but she recently stepped out in a cute new pixie style, framing her lovely face and giving her a sexy edge. Recreate her pixie cut by asking for longer bangs to frame the shape of your face. Use a small round brush to blow out the layers and then apply Pureology’s Density Definer Crème Wax. A medium hold wax, this will give you body and texture with a satin finish. Pureology’s AntiFade Complex, UV Filters, orange oils and antioxidants protect your hair and color from looking dull. Follow up with your favorite hairspray for all-day hold.

Kaley Cuoco’s been sporting her pixie since last year and she seems to be enjoying her style. If your hair is thicker like Kaley’s you will need a product with a stronger hold to keep your layers in place. KMS’ Design Wax is still flexible, but will help piece out the most stubborn strands while adding effortless shine. The best advice for using any wax is not going overboard. Make sure to work the product into your hands first and gently stroke through hair for an even application of product.

April Beauty Must-Haves

Planet Beauty has chosen their April beauty picks and I know you're going to love them! The spring season is all about showing off great skin and hair and these two beauty must-haves will help you accomplish that. 

Keeping the ends of your hair healthy isn't always easy, especially during the warmer months of the year due to our higher level of outdoor activity. Whether you're tossing your hair up for that spin class or taking surfing lessons before summer, all that friction can really do some damage on your ends, making your hair look dry and frayed. To keep your ends looking healthy, pick up a tube of Schwarzkopf's BC Hairtherapy Repair Rescue Sealed Ends. If this beauty-must have is already a staple in your beauty routine, then kudos to you! If it's not, you have to give this award-winning product a try. This lightweight super cream helps prevent split ends and breakage. If you plan to lighten up your hair this season, you'll definitely want this handy. Using just a small amount on your ends will help keep your hair smoothed and relaxed. Panthenol and Amino Cell Rebuild technology keep your hair moisturized and healthier. For a limited time, Planet Beauty will be offering Sealed Ends in a bonus size, so stop in and grab this beauty bargain. If your hair is really damaged, I suggest pairing Sealed Ends with Schwarzkopf's Repair Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner. 

New at Planet Beauty: Kardashian Hair

If you love everything about the Kardashian family and keep up with everything they do, then you'll be excited to know that Planet Beauty is now carrying the Kardashian Beauty Hair collection. Beautiful hair never goes out of style and you can now recreate those famous Kardashian tresses with their styling products and hair tools.

The Kardashian Black Seed Dry Oil helps nourish hair without residue or weight. Antioxidant rich, Black Seed Oil helps deliver shine and smoothness to dry hair. Use this styling oil before and after you style with heat to smooth away flyways and enhance shine.

For sleek styling, the Smooth Styler Blow Dry cream is the idea product for smoothing out unruly, frizz-prone hair. Used before blow drying, hair is protected from thermal damage, humidity and frizz. 

For big, Kardashian-inspired hair, the K-Body Volume Foam and Pure Glitz are a dynamic duo. Get tousled, textured strands by using the foam before styling and finish your style with Pure Glitz for voluptuous, sexy hair. 

Second-day styling will be a breeze with the Kardashian Take 2 Dry Shampoo and Take 2 Dry Conditioner. Instantly refresh hair and remove unflattering hair oils with this quick drying combination. Girls with dark hair don't need to worry about residue. Even the darkest haired girls will love how lightweight these sprays are.

Curly haired gals will be love the Twirl Me Curl Defining Cream Gel for light styling that keeps waves and curls defined while protecting against frizz. Use on damp hair and let air dry or diffuse for a full-bodied, textured style.

Redken's Frizz Dismiss

For anyone constantly battling frizz, Redken has created a line specifically designed for smoothing and protecting hair against humid conditions. The new Frizz Dismiss line has a product for just about anyone and was created with exclusive technology developed in Brazil using Brazilian Pracaxi Oil for hair nourishment and strength. 

The first step to eliminating frizz is using the Frizz Dismiss Sulfate-Free Shampoo. Using the shampoo will help to smooth down unmanageable hair and protect it from humid conditions. The Frizz Dismiss shampoo is both sulfate and sodium chloride-free, so it's safe to use on chemically straightened hair. After shampooing, you'll want to use the Frizz Dismiss conditioner to further protect your hair and give it some shine. For anyone with extra dry and frizzy hair, the Frizz Dismiss Mask Intensive Rinse-out Treatment is the perfect addition to your hair routine. Used one to two times a week, this intensive treatment will help deeply condition hair and eliminate unruliness.

Since frizzy hair is not created equal, finding the right product to tame your hair will depend on how thick and frizz-prone it is. Redken's Frizz Dismiss has plenty of options to customize your "FPF", otherwise known as Frizz Protection Factor. Anyone with finer hair or someone in a relatively low-humidity area will love the simplicity of using Frizz Dismiss FPF 10 Fly-Away Fix Finishing Sheets. With 50 sheets in the box, all you do is smooth over dry hair to eliminate static and flyways, leaving hair free of frizz without any weight. 

Get Bombshell Blonde Hair with Sexy Hair!

If you’re a blonde who loves Sexy Haircare, then you’re going to love their new blonde line specifically designed for you. Bombshell blonde hair doesn’t come easy, but with a little love and nurturing, your hair and blonde color can look amazing.

In order to maintain your blonde hair looking healthy and vibrant, you’ll want to try Sexy Hair’s Sulfate-Free Bright Blonde Shampoo. This violet-colored shampoo is perfect for anyone with cool, bleached, highlighted or silver hair. Eliminate unwanted brassy, yellow tones and keep your strands looking fresh and beautiful. Sexy’s Perfect-Balance Technology includes ingredients like Chamomile, Honey and Quinoa to help protect your hair from breakage while reinforcing strength and conditioning your hair. The Chamomile and Violet pigment keep your blonde locks from looking dull, while enhancing much-needed shine. Follow up with the new Blonde Conditioner for the best results.

 

As your daily shampoo, try Sexy Hair’s Sulfate-Free Bombshell Blonde Shampoo. This hydrating shampoo will help with unwanted buildup without drying out your precious strands. The sulfate-free formula will keep color from fading quickly and will also be gentle on your hair if it’s significantly damaged. This shampoo also contains Chamomile and Honey to moisturize and keep your blonde hair looking bright and healthy. Switching off between this shampoo and the Bright shampoo will maintain the integrity of your color until your next salon visit.

Golden Globe Beauty From Home

The fashion trends on the Red Carpet last Sunday at the Golden Globes were nothing but sexy, glamourous and eye-catching. From gorgeously fitted metallic dresses to clean, white sexy gowns, everyone looked stunning head to toe. Loose, vintage hair waves seemed to dominate, as well as soft, smokey eyes and bronzed, glowing skin. Red lips were also traditionally present on Sunday, as well. Glamour isn't just for movie stars and celebrities, though. To get Red-Carpet gorgeous any time, check out some of our beauty picks to help you achieve a winning look. 

To recreate those famous vintage waves, it's never a bad idea to have second-day hair. If your hair is fine, applying a volume spray like Pureology's Volume Instant Levitation Mist will give you the lift and fullness for beautiful waves. You can then choose to curl your hair with a curling iron or hot rollers. Typically, you'll want to use a one inch barrel. To get the perfect vintage curl, use a medium hold spray after you're done curling for slight hold. Then, gently brush your curl down until you get the desired wave. For any curling job, I love Alterna's Working Hairspray since it's a crushable hold that can also be used as a finishing hairspray. If you need more hold, you can't go wrong with Enjoy's Super Hold Hairpsray.

New-Wella Elements

Great news, Wella fanatics! Wella Professionals has launched their first ever sulfate, artificial colorant and paraben free line. Wella Elements was designed for the ingredient and health conscious customer looking for color preservation without compromise. If you love Wella Haircare and are currently receiving keratin or color treatments, you may want to check out their newest line.

Wella Elements protects color and keratin treatments with their exclusive NuTree Complex. A natural tree extract works to calm the scalp, which is vital for healthy hair growth. This natural tree complex also protects keratin by forming a shield around hair. Panthenol then penetrates the hair deeply to bind moisture and repair the hair's inner cell structure. EDDS further protects the hair keratin by keeping the moisture inside the hair, allowing it to strengthen. 

Get out of your Post-Holiday Funk!

Now that the holiday season is officially over, it's time for a head to toe detox to get you looking and feeling better for 2015!  Between the endless cookie trays and champagne, you may find yourself feeling quite sluggish and puffy these days--don't worry, it happens to a lot of us. This month, treat yourself to a beauty detox and get back on track to feeling great.

It's easy to neglect water during the holiday season. After all, what sounds better than hot chocolate on a cold day? Unfortunately, a lack of water can cause surface dehydration on the skin, which can make it look dull and flaky. Start increasing your water intake this month and look for a treatment mask to help brighten your skin up. If your skin is feeling dry, you'll want to search for a good hydrating mask to help. If your skin is in major need of a clarifying treatment, try a mud mask that will help detox your skin from impurities. 

Between getting your hair colored, using heat styling tools, extra hairspray and styling products for perfect holiday hair, your hair can end up feeling kinda gross. Give your hair a detox by using a sulfate-free clarifying shampoo and condition it with a treatment mask for beautiful, more manageable hair. It won't hurt to book an appointment for a trim if you couldn't stop curling your hair last month.
