I came across this Popsugar article about beach waves and I thought I would share it with you!┬áIt talks about how hairstylist Anh Co Tran transforms the hair of many women–many that are celebrities. He has different methods of styling hair, like cutting the hair when it’s dry and incorporating a “soft undercut”, which according to Anh is a way of adding movement to hair and thinning it out without using actual thinning scissors.

He may have different methods, but every haircut he gives is essentially the same.


I love this hairstyle! I think it’s so pretty and it looks easy-breezy. When I do my hair in waves, I try to give it more volume because my hair is thin. Also, I use a flat iron to do my waves. I move the flat iron in a zig-zag motion, and it seems to work. Anh Co Tran said that he uses a curling iron or rod and alternates the wave. Also, he said to leave the end of your hair out if you’re using a curling iron. I need to try this! I’m a little scared of curling irons, and I don’t know where to find a curling rod. But I’ve always wanted one; they look like so much fun to use.


In the article, it says all you need to achieve this look is the curling iron, salt or texturing spray, and dry shampoo. It doesn’t seem too hard, but I also don’t have a professional hairstylist to do my hair.

Rooted Beauty Products

After my post about Burt’s Bees, I became interested in other companies that have similar goals and values. I came across a company called Rooted Beauty Products, and they are doing it right too!


They sell facial care products and lip butter that comes in flavors like Passionfuit, Orange Vanilla, and Berry Mint. The products are made with safe, recognizable ingredients like extracts from fruits and plants that refresh your skin naturally and effectively. The products are fairly cheap too! royalset-500x500-445x445Homepage-Images3

On their website they talk about the projects they do to help people around the world. Here’s what it says:

“Each Rooted Beauty skincare product helps a woman escape from extreme poverty and trafficking through our Woman2Woman Project. Our partnering organizations use the funds we raise through Woman2Woman projects to provide each woman with vocational training and recovery counseling. Woman2Woman projects enable women around the world to escape bondage and become self-sufficient. Our partnering organizations work closely with each woman to ensure long-term stability and freedom. Once a project is fully funded, we sponsor a new woman, creating a cycle of ongoing impact.”

That’s so cool! I’m so proud that they are making a difference, and they are making it easy for people like you and me to change the world. Homepage-Images2
