Olympic Athlete Hairstyles London 2012!


The Olympics have been so amazing, breathtaking and inspiring! Here are 8 of our favorite Olympic Hairstyles that these amazing athletes are sporting!
You can still look fabulous, groomed and gorgeous when working out.
Adding in some leave in conditioner, moroccan or coconut oil before working out, will protect your hair from drying out, keep it soft, healthy and moisturized.
Remember to wear sunscreen or a tinted moisturizer with an SPF while out in the sun, and a natural lip balm is also a must to keep lips soft. (Sunburned, cracked or dry lips and skin is never pretty or fun!)

Get inspired! Try something new on your next workout!

(Starting on the left column going across)

1. USA Gymnast Gabby Douglas~ A sleek ponytail

2. A lot of Gymnasts were sporting these sleek loped buns

3. There were a lot of hair bands at the Olympics. These are great for keeping hair out of your face & sweat.

4. This Volleyball beauty duo~ Misty May-Treanor & Kerri Jennings sported braided high ponytails.

5. We love these mid length sleek ponytails.

6. Speed Skater Ryan Bedford got creative and rocked an American Flag!

7. Richards Ross is sporting a beautiful half up hairstyle with a braided hairband.

8. Russian long jumper Darya Klishina looks so stunning with this romantic braided up do.

Fashion Friday
So we are barely into August, and already all of the stores we know and love are leaving the breezy, light fabrics, and trading them for the heavier, cozy ones synonymous with Fall. Not only does this mean that we get to shop for the new fall essentials, it also means that we get to see the inspiration and vision that these designers have through their new collection.
One of our favorite fall collections, was that of DKNY Fall 2012 RTW (Ready To Wear). Super sleek, work appropriate, and details in the silhouettes and fabric that are slightly sexy, make this collection of ready to wear clothes score high in our books. Sure, there are lots of deep and dark colors, which might not be for some; however, as opposed to thinking of them as drab, we like to consider them rich and empowering.

This is an example of how the rich color keeps the feminine lines looking sleek, but at the same time fall appropriate.

If blue doesn’t make the cut for you, nothing screams fall more than the color of cranberries. Paired with fur and a nice thick belt to define the waist, its sure to make you feel cozy and season appropriate.
So whatever this fall may bring you, look out for deep, bold colors, and warm fabrics. You’re sure to enjoy all the leaves and jaws dropping.

BeautifYou Goes to Per-fékt Beauty Press Event!
On July 10th, we were invited to attend a press event for the celeb loved and busy woman-on-the-go friendly makeup line, Per-fékt Beauty. Based in our very own Hollywood, CA  and founded in 2005, the company believes in, “multi-functional products that are quick and easy to apply, long-lasting, and offer an alternative to traditional beauty products.” In short, products that are “per-fékt” for someone with little time, but the desire to look polished. In addition to meeting with Richard Anderson, President -Founder -Creator of the beauty line, we were able to see a first hand demonstration of how the products work. And believe us when we say that these products are well liked for a reason.
Two of the most loved products from the brand are the Skin Perfection Gel, where the “brand started”, and the Lash Perfection Gel. The Skin Perfection Gel is full of ingredients that are meant to help the skin and leave a baby soft finish, as well as pigments that help even out skin tone in the most natural and subtle of ways. As stated by the ever dynamic Richard Anderson, “it doesn’t cover, it perfects.” You can’t help but agree with him when you pat, not smooth, it onto your face and see how it finishes whatever product you have previously applied.

Lash Perfection Gel is an inky black gel, that when applied to lashes, works as a lash primer and mascara, that is both water resistant and free of tar, which produces a much lighter coat for eyelashes. As mentioned at the event, it is top rated on Sephora.com (where the line is also available) with 4 out of 5 stars, and unique because it is one of the few, if not the only, lash primer/mascara that is not white, but black.
Those two products are only the beginning, given that the line also offers cheek, body, lip, and brow products. Sufficient to say that Per-fékt has something for everyone, even us here at BeautifYou.
Thanks to everyone at Per-fékt Beauty, we were gifted a generous bag of goodies and we absolutely love them! But don’t worry, there is a beauty gift for you too…From now until August 31st, if you purchase any of the beauty products from the Per-fékt Beauty website (www.perfektbeauty.com), you will receive a 25% discount off your total at checkout, as long as you enter the code: XOXOPERFEKT .
