10 fiercely fab orange lipsticks


This spring/ summer there is one colour that needs attention orange. No not the citrus fruit, where talking about this season’s hottest shade scarlet orange pouts that was featured in Mary Katrantzou, Antonio Berardi and House of Holland SS14 runway shows.

The colour screams scandalous attention as minimal is more why not let strip your eye shadow and let the colour cause a stir?

How to wear the fearlessly fab look:

1. If you want to wear bold colour but don’t feel brave enough to wear it full powered, dab the lipstick on to your fingers and apply with your fingertips. Apply evenly and all over for a bold, yet understated look.

2. For a glossier look, apply a little Lip Conditioner over the top or underneath whilst applying the lipstick to give a sheer shiny look.

3. If you want to wear it full powered, apply the lipstick with a brush, it will stay on longer and look smoother.

Hijabi Hair Care

hijabhairWearing a hijab shouldn’t be an escape route to hide badly maintained hair, in fact your hair would require a lot more care and attention as it experiences different conditions under the hijab. Salaam style has created quick and easy tips to make your hair feel fuller and more revived than ever.

Tip 1

After shampoo and conditioning, be sure to rinse your hair thoroughly. Left-over product dulls hair.

Tip 2

Distributing conditioner through your hair with a wide-toothed comb will leave your hair shiny and tangle-free. Make sure you apply the conditioner from mid-lengths to ends. Conditioning your roots will weigh your hair down.

Tip 3

If your hair is really dry, deep-condition at home. Apply conditioner to clean, damp hair; slip on a plastic cap and let your hair absorb for minutes.

Tip 4

Rubbing your hair with a towel when it’s wet can ruffle the cuticle and cause tangles, so gently squeeze out excess water.

Tip 5

When blow drying, protect your hair with a styling product such as a conditioning milk, cream, or serum. Move you blow dryer from roots to ends to avoid frizz and shredding your hair cuticles. For smooth results, brush as you blow dry in the same direction. It will prevent your cuticle from roughing up.

Tip 6

Do not braid your hair or tie your ponytail too tightly. Your hair needs to breathe freely, so take off your hijab and untie your ponytail whenever you are able to.

Tip 7

Use inners and under scarves made from natural fibres such as cotton. Keep them loose in order to maintain air circulation for your scalp.

Tip 8

Trim your hair regularly. The best way to get rid of split ends is to…do it yourself! Take some hair shears and attack the split ends about 1/4 inch above the splitting. Many women with perfect hair never have split ends because they make it a priority to get their hair trimmed, or trim it themselves, every 6-8 weeks.

Tip 9

Simple and loose hijab styles are the best for the health of your hair as they allow air circulation.

Tip 10

Lastly eat healthy and give your hair the right amount of vitamins. Since hair is made of proteins, make sure that you eat a balanced diet rich in lean protein, whole grains, fruits and vegetables. A healthy diet will ensure better-looking, better-feeling hair.
