Keep Your Eye on These Beauty Trends for 2016

With every new year comes new and exciting beauty trends to try. Last year was all about the contouring and eyebrow game. From Pinterest to Instagram, we just couldn't escape the craze. If you're ready for some new inspiration as we make our way into the new year, then check out some of the fresh beauty trends that we'll be seeing this year. 

The lovely lob: If you're feeling the itch for a new hairstyle, then you might want to consider the hottest style right now. The lob isn't as dramatic as the bob, but still changes up your look with added length. From Jennifer Lawrence to Jessica Alba, everyone seemed to be opting for the long bob and it's still making a statement into 2016. If you're not sure if this cut is right for you, talk to your stylist and see what lob will best frame your face.

Shimmery and metallic lids: If you love having sparkle in your life, then you'll love this beauty trend. Go subtle or bold--there really aren't any rules for this trend except wearing the amount of shimmer you're most comfortable with. Pair this trend with a pretty nude lip to keep the attention on your dazzling eyes.

Blue shadows and liners: Add an instant touch of youthfulness and brightness to your face with this eye-catching trend. Blue eyeshadow and liner shades were hot on the runway during fashion week for Spring 2016 and won't be going away anytime soon. Get a little adventurous or wear it softy and don't be afraid of flaunting this trend.

Try These Summer Beauty Trends Before It's Too Late

The end of summer is vastly approaching, but don't go packing up your favorite bathing suit just yet. Before you start going through your fall wardrobe, I encourage you to thoroughly enjoy the last few weeks of summer and try out the summer's hottest beauty trends before it's too late. 

1. Dye your hair a bright or pastel shade: Before summer ends, get in touch with your inner mermaid or punk rock chick and have some fun with your color. You can either go all in and dye it completely pink or you can try out a balayage for something more subtle. For a quick and easy kiss of color, pick up Redken's Color Rebel Hair Makeup. This temporary hair color is perfect for anyone who wants some edge without the commitment. 

2. Embrace the bronze: Get one last perfect summer selfie by showing off your beautiful and bronzed skin. Summer is all about achieving that healthy glow and Planet Beauty has a wide selection of bronzers that will make you look like a total sun goddess without any of the harmful UV damage.

3. Dare to wear bright lips: What goes better against beautifully bronzed skin than a gorgeous pout sporting bright lip color? Put away the nudes in your makeup bag and embrace a brighter color before summer ends. Get out of your comfort zone and try a purple, coral or bright red lip. Too Faced's Melted Liquified Lipsticks have a great selection of shades that will make heads turn when you walk by.

If you're looking for a game changer to add to your regular beauty routine, then check out some of our best beauty splurges. 

1. Bio Ionic 10X UltraLight Speed Dryer: Spending on a good quality hair dryer is always a wise investment, especially if you have hair that takes longer to dry.

Stay Gorgeous with our July Beauty Picks

Our monthly beauty picks are in and they are just what you need this summer to look fabulous from head to toe. The weather's beginning to warm up, which means we're all hitting the beach and pool for relief. Staying protected from the sun and maintaining hydration can be tough, but it isn't impossible. Check out our July must-haves and add them to your summer arsenal of beauty products.

If you're a pool babe or beach bunny, then you know how easy your hair can become compromised with over-exposure to chlorinated and salt water. Your gorgeous locks can start to look and feel tough at the ends. The shine in your hair starts to quickly get dull and color just doesn't look the same. Before you reach the end of summer with thirsty, dehydrated hair, use Phyto Haircare's Phytolage Protective Sun Veil. You'll want this lightweight spray in your tote anytime you hit the pool or beach this summer. It offers a UV filter and an anti-dehydration barrier that keeps your hair protected against the sun, saltwater and chlorine. Spray evenly on damp or dry hair before sun exposure and reapply after water exposure. Sunflower extract, white lotus extract and sweet almond proteins keep your hair fully protected, shiny and hydrated all summer long. The fragrance is so light, you won't even notice it and it's a great product for the entire family.

Biolage Joins The Co-Wash Trend

Biolage has decided to join the co-wash trend and has come out with 4 amazing cleansing conditioners to fit every hair type. Cleansing conditioners are super hot in the beauty industry, particularly with women with dry, unruly hair. Anyone with extremely damaged hair can also benefit greatly from using cleansing conditioners, as they are sulfate-free and don't strip color and keep strands softer and healthier. If you're like me and find it really hard to go a day without washing your hair, this is also a great alternative to keep your hair from getting dry and damaging. Biolage's cleansing conditioners are all paraben, sulfate and silicone free. Depending on your hair type, there is a cleansing conditioner and leave-in treatment especially designed to make your hair look its best.

If your hair is coarse and in need of deep nourishment, you'll love the feel of the cleansing conditioner for coarse hair. Infused with Avocado Oil, this cleansing conditioner will leave hair feeling softer and healthier after use. The Avocado Oil will also help smooth and control unruly frizz. As a leave-in treatment, pair this cleansing conditioner with the Smoothing Cream. This rich cream also contains Avocado Oil to condition and nourish hair. A great detangler, this leave-in will also help control frizz, leaving your hair soft and manageable.

The prestigious award show never disappoints in the beauty department and this year was no exception.

Using the ghd Curve, stylists creating romantic, loose waves for Stone, Saldana and Knightley. Cotillard's feminine and clean bun was created with the ghd Eclipse. Both of these amazing tools are available now at Planet Beauty. Create a casual wavy style and incorporate a soft beach spray for spring.
