Girl Bosses Who Are Ruling The Beauty World

In the beauty world, there are those brands that you've been using since forever. You know, that face wash you first started buying as a teenager. That cheap (but tried and tested) mascara you just can't beat, the shampoo you keep coming back to. 

However as we all know, there is no such thing as too much beauty and there is a refreshing and exciting new batch of beauty entrepreneurs popping up every day launching brands that are creating quite a buzz and capturing everyone's attention. 

Here are a few of our flavours of the moment... 

Cinch

There is nothing better than a home-grown beauty boss. Aussie mum Renee Moore has created a clever skin product that combines five separate products into one handy sized bottle and cuts your morning beauty regimen down by half. Finally!

Cinch- Face Cheat offers as much hydration as many cream moisturisers on the market but it feels weightless on your skin. It's also got an illuminator in it to give you an instant glow, kakadu plum to help with lines and wrinkles; it’s a pore minimiser and also a primer so it’s a great base for makeup. Basically, it's a one stop shop and we're LOVING it over at The Arch Stylist. 

Cuvée Beauty

This up-and-coming hair care line harnesses the power of the pop (Champagne) in every bottle. Brand founder Rachel Katzman was inspired to start Cuvee Beauty after being drenched in everybody's favourite fizz whilst on a wild trip to Las Vegas.

She loved how soft yet textured it made her hair so she decided to develop a range of unisex hair products, including a shampoo and serum. Her good-enough-to-eat products are infused with Champagne, white truffle and other delicious botanicals. We'll take the lot thanks!

The Buff

Another Aussie success story, this time a beauty editor, Jasmine Garnsworthy who was sick of struggling with adult acne. In a cruel twist of fate, Jasmine had access to all the beauty products in the world and yet nothing seemed to be helping clear her skin. 

After extensive research, Jasmine launched her own range of facial oils called The Buff using all natural oils and ingredients such as jojoba and lemon essential oil. 

The Buff have since expanded into body oils and personalised face oils, targeted to your individual skin needs, whether it's acne, dryness, redness or fine lines. 

Ouai

Celebrity stylist (aka. hair stylist to the Kardashian's) Jen Atkin launched her eagerly awaited haircare line Ouai in early 2016, and since then, celebrities, social media influencers and beauty editors have been singing it's praises.

Chic, minimalist packaging, delicate floral fragrance, and fuss-free formulas that work. As the brand grows in 2017, so does it's list of fans.

 

 

Secrets To Make Your Eyelash Extensions Last Longer

Lash extensions are addictive…you heard it here first.

The first time they go on you wonder what you were doing P.L.E (pre lash extensions) and get excited for the amazing moments you know you’ll experience now you have those bad boys on.

For those as fanatic as us about their beautiful lashes, we have 5 tips on extending out their shelf life so you get the best out of them.

Sleep on your back

It may sound like we’re asking you to do the impossible, but the best thing for your lash extensions is to make sure you sleep on your back as much as possible. The friction caused from your lashes and cotton rubbing will cause premature shedding of your lashes, especially on the side you prefer to sleep on! We stock the best silk pillowcases on the market so as to minimise your lash shedding.

Don’t get them wet 48 hours after application

The adhesive used to glue on your lashes needs at least 24-48 hours to dry. To be safe, avoid excessive heat for the first couple of days as well, including hairdryers, bikram yoga, saunas and so on- due to excessive sweat. Once you can get them wet, make sure you comb them out so they keep their shape.

Use the correct products

Oil based products are the number one reason people find that their lashes don’t last as long. Cleansers such as 'Prolong Lash Complete Care' cleanser is formulated specifically for eyelash extensions and is oil free, and stocked at our salon.

Refrain from rubbing and touching your lashes

It sounds simple but a lot of people habitually touch their natural lashes and find they’re doing the same with their extensions. Natural oils from your finger plus the tugging won’t do you any favours if you’re after longevity.

Keep them combed!

Don’t let your lashes loose their shape and appearance by neglecting to comb them out. We supply you with a small comb after every session to make sure your lashes are kept in tip top shape until the refill rolls around!

SHOP: Loving Tan

The best faux-tan on the market, Loving Tan has taken its special place on The Arch Stylist shelves along with the rest of our must-have products.

One of the most recognised tanning products worldwide, Loving Tan has incredible reviews and even better results.

We are stocking all shades as well as their special mitt for the perfect application! Grab some at your next brow appointment!

TRENDING: silk pillowcases

The Arch Stylist is now stocking Slip Pillowslips!

We know the importance of beauty sleep, so we’ve made it easier for you to get your ZZZs and still look fabulous!

The Arch Stylist has tracked down the world’s most sought after, 100% silk pillow slips to make sleep time even more heavenly.

Not only do they look luxe, they have several benefits, not just for your brows but your skin and hair too:

 

Minimizes Sleep Creases

Ever woken up with a 'sleep-crease' on your face?  While the creases usually go away later the same day, they are an indication of the damage done to your face when sleeping on a cotton pillowcase.

Sleep creases aren't just temporary. Over time they become ironed wrinkles. Since Slip was started in 2004 we've heard countless times from people with years of chronic sleep crease completely disappears after the very first night.

 

Say Goodbye To Bed Head

A secret that hairdressers and movie stars have known for decades, silk pillowcases are infinitely gentler on your hair than cotton.  

Cotton grabs your hair and twists it at the root throughout the night, damaging hair and causing bed-head in the morning, whereas silk is so gentle on your hair, it allows your hairstyle/blow-dry to last overnight, which is great news for people with hair extensions, curly hair, fragile hair and anyone wanting to maintain the integrity of their hair. 

 

Gentle On Your Hair

Cotton draws moisture from your hair, drying it out and further contributing to bed-head. Unfortunately 'bed-head' is not only an inconvenience, but a symptom of something more serious.  

The same rough treatment that causes bed-head can also damage your hair follicles, leading to thinner, less healthy hair.

 

Hydrates Your Skin

Cotton is very absorbent. It can hold 24-27 times its own weight in water. This mean it actually draws moisture away from you skin, drying it out stealing your expensive face crème in the process!

When you sleep on silk, your delicate facial skin is more hydrate in the morning.
Don't forget to pack your slip when travelling. Just one night back on cotton an you'll really notice the difference in the morning.


 

Silk Breathes

It's a natural temperature regulator, so it's cooler in summer and doesn't sweat like synthetic satin and other man-made imitations.  Synthetic satin (e.g. polyester) may feel nice and soft in your hand, but after an 8 hour sleep your hair and facial skin can really feel the difference.

 

Silk Is Natural

Slip is the perfect choice for people with allergies. Silk is naturally dust mite resistant. It's also hypoallergenic... at least it is when strict production standards are enforced, including the use of non-toxic dyes

 

Our Top 5 Celebrity Brows

From perfectly shaped to fluffy perfection, brows are still one of the biggest beauty trends in 2017.

Here at The Arch Stylist, we're compiled a list of our favourite celebrity brows to inspire you for your next visit. Bring on the beautiful brow inspo...

Camille Belle

Look no further if you want a combination of bold-but-natural looking brows.

Camille Belle is one of the most requested looks we’ve received, her brows are full without being overwhelming.  

Achieved though a combination of tinting, feathering and grooming, these could be your own brows in no time.

 

Megan Fox

Megan Fox wasn’t always this babein! She owes a lot of her latest look to her brow transformation.

She’s thickened them up without going overboard. Megan has a high arch, and very structured brows, perfect for those after a perfectly manicured look.

 

Kendall Jenner

Not all brow envy comes from those with a sky-high arch.

Some facial features actually suit a flatter brow, which can be determined from your consult prior to your brow appointment with Yasmin or one of our other brow experts. Kendall is a perfect example of a flatter, more sultry look.

Cara Delevingne

The master of all brows, Cara’s look was the one that changed everyone’s perception of what brows should look like come 2012. 

Since she broke out onto the scene with her bushy, face framing brows, the perception of beauty has changed.

This look takes patience if you're wanting to grow out your own brows, or alternatively, feather-touch tattoo is the perfect solution.

 

 

Lily James

The effortless make up look is a big trend this season.

The appearance of ‘brushed up’ brows can make the face appear fresh, perfect for those wanting a youthful, less harsh look.

Lily James has nailed it!
