Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Beauty

Seventeen Mag Hits a Home Run with the Ultimate Guide to Beauty

The good folks at Seventeen Magazine were kind enough to send me a complimentary copy of the Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Beauty for review and I’m impressed! This book is amazing . . . 192 pages of big glossy colored pics, filled with detailed DIY how to and some tips and tricks that I haven’t seen anywhere before. This guide is full of clear information that can be used for years to come with beautiful illustrations on topics of hair, skin, nails and makeup. Each of these topics cover pro tips for looks for any occasion, including recommendations for the essential products and tools to get the look.

Of course, most of the models are teens, but trust me there is enough must have information here for fashionistas of any age. Here is one quick and easy “DIY how to”  idea to give you just a peek at this beauty guide.

Loose Bouncy Curls

Ashley’s look: The Big Bounce

“I love the fact that this look can be done in a short amount of time, but it looks so put together!”

Here’s the How To:

Using a curling iron to create big curls

CURL

A large curling iron creates big, loose waves. Wind your hair around the iron, but leave out the ends for a casual, almost Beachy effect.

 

Twist the front pieces back

TWIST

Pull the front pieces back to add a unique twist. Take small sections on each side and twist them all the way down to the ends.

 

Bring the twists together

SECURE

Bring the twists together at the back of your head and keep them perfectly in place with pins. Brush through the ends to blend them into the rest of your hair.

Ashley says,”Volumizing hairspray makes my curls last all day and also adds amazing body! I use a heat-protecting serum to keep my hair from getting fried from my daily curling sessions. A ceramic curling iron helps protect my hair from heat damage.”

Anytime is a good time to have a complete  go-to guide like Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Beauty on hand and with all the fun upcoming events with the holiday season ahead, you’ll have the perfect reasons to try all sorts of new looks!
