How Wigs Changed Beauty and the Modern Society

Since the ancient civilization, wigs played a major role in the social scene starting from the Egyptian and Roman times. Wigs were used during daily life of the Egyptian royals and elites and also for major festivals and events. Ancient Egyptian hairstyles and use of wigs varied with social status, gender, and age. But the climate and medical issues also formed a unique influence when it comes to wearing a certain hairstyle or wig. Other ancient cultures, including the Romans, Greeks, Middle Easterns, and Mediterraneans also used wigs as an everyday fashion. Their styles and sizes often indicated religious piety and status in the community.





The use of wigs continued until during the 18th and 19th Century. During the Victorian era, the wearing of wigs as a symbol of social standing was abandoned. Although some women continued to wear wigs, most preferred to look natural. In the court of Queen Victoria, the ladies wore shorter fringes and headpieces with simple designs. Back in the 18th century, men's wigs became smaller and more formal with several professions adopting them as part of their official costumes. This tradition survives in a few legal systems like the ones routinely worn in various countries of the British Empire.

Cebu 2018 Travel Diary: Ching Hai at Jpark Island Resort & Waterpark

I've visited Cebu three times in the past, but for me it was always only just a jump off point to Bohol or Siargao. I would just usually spend a day or day and a half in the Queen City of the South and I was not really able to experience this vibrant city. Cebu is probably the other city state outside of Luzon that is urbanized and equally progressive as Manila.





Although it is a metropolitan area, what I like about Cebu is that destinations where you can enjoy nature is easily within reach. Mountainous areas like in Busay is just a few minutes away from the city, world-class beach resorts in Mactan Island is just an hour away while Bantayan Island, Moalbal (diving site) and Oslob (whale shark watching) are just a few hours away.

Wedding Hairstyle Of Your Dreams

So it’s Saturday, and the whole world is tuned in to the event of the year, the Royal Wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Since it’s from a different time zone, I don’t think I will be able to watch it and it’s not like I’m going to wake up too early in the morning for it. I would just probably watch it some clips of it on YouTube. Don’t get me wrong, I admire the Royal Family, especially Kate Middleton and her style and most especially her cute kids.




I’m excited to see the wedding dress of Meghan though and what will she look like. No one can’t argue that Kate Middleton was from-head-to-toe divine on her wedding day. Like, she was meant to be a princess. Now we all have to seat and watch how Meghan may or may not wow the whole world. She had a wedding on her last episode on the TV show Suits. Now I’m wondering will she wear a similar dress. Will she also wear a similar hair-do? Like the up-do on the still shot on the episode or will she wear her hair down just like on her engagement photoshoot. We will see as this day goes on so let’s cross our fingers she’ll also look as perfect as Kate.

Hair Extensions Care Tips

Hair extensions are very popular nowadays among fashion-beauty lovers and celebrities. I would say they are an investment especially if one bought or had real human hair extensions applied on them. There are many steps that you should initially consider to determine what type, quality or brand of hair weave that you decided is best for you. You can go to the parlor and request for the method to be done into your hair but of course, you need to know what maintenance care you will do after application. After all, you shed a good amount of cash for it, and you don’t want to go wasting your money and not enjoying their full benefits and for a great amount of time.




Hair extensions can make you look good and stylish especially if you have chosen the right volume and length. So most women go for the natural one instead of the synthetics. A popular type is the Brazilian hair extensions. Since they are natural they are more beautiful to look at because it is human hair and it will easily fit to your type of crowning glory. They can last long because you can do some treatment on it as you like. You can color it, iron it or curl it and it won’t damage easily compared to synthetics.

Head-Turning Hair All Day Everyday

It would be very nice to wake up with an already styled look, like waking up every morning with beautiful beach waves. But no, that’s not always the case when you get a perm. I have had friends who went to the salon to get digital perms yet they weren’t able to achieve those beach waves and they end up with old fashioned and super curly hair. They also revealed to me that having permed hair is not wash-and-wear at all. 




People say you can't have all the things that you want. But there are things that you can always get if you really want and put an effort to it. Beauty is fleeting but there's nothing wrong if you want to look good and presentable right. Say for example it's not so hard to achieve outrageously gorgeous hair. You would see celebrities with their outrageously beautiful hairstyles and you become eager to get it for your next hairstyle and request something as what you’ve seen on the cover of your favorite magazine to your hairdresser. Is it possible? Of course! I'm about to tell you, so listen up.

Cebu 2018 Travel Diary: The Abalone at Jpark Island Resort & Waterpark

I've visited Cebu three times in the past, but for me it was always only just a jump off point to Bohol or Siargao. I would just usually spend a day or day and a half in the Queen City of the South and I was not really able to experience this vibrant city. Cebu is probably the other city state outside of Luzon that is urbanized and equally progressive as Manila.

This Is Why You Should Choose Natural Hair Extensions

A lot of women (even men) around the world have a lot of trouble growing their hair. Most of us want more volume and length and many if not most, are going for hair extensions as the right call especially if we need to achieve that desire in a very small amount of time. After all, hair extensions are the easiest, painless and almost no effort in this regard. 




There are a handful of hair extensions that one can buy and it can get too overwhelming. But for now, let’s look at these two types: synthetic and real. Synthetic hair extensions or wigs are normally plastic fiber that looks like hair strands. Synthetic hair extensions do not have the quality and appearance that real hair has. You can’t also style them, blow dry or curl, the way you want too as hey will easily get destroyed.

Treat Yourself to the Luxury You Deserve

If you love your home but have a feeling that it’s not giving you all the luxury and comfort you deserve, you’re in luck! You don’t have to relocate or build huge additions. Only a few luxurious upgrades will give you all the pampering and coziness you deserve! 
 


Brighten up your life  
No matter how well it’s designed and decorated, a poorly lit home will never look luxurious and feel comfortable and cozy. So, make sure to let plenty of sunshine in with large windows. However, while windows work amazingly well in the marginal rooms, they do nothing for the interior rooms, hallways and closets. Luckily, there are big skylights and skydomes that can bring natural light even to the darkest of nooks and crannies of your home. They are also a great way to provide additional ventilation. Some skylights also come with motorized shades, bug screens and rain sensors, so you never have to worry about too much sunlight or bad weather.
