Changing My Hairstyle

A few years ago, a friend of mine told me that my hair was a little dated. I was kind of offended at first, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that she was right. I needed a change, but I wasn't sure what I wanted. I started doing a little research, and I was able to find an incredible salon near my house that offered what I was looking for. I made an appointment, and the hairstylist walked me through a litany of styles, colors, and accessories. This blog is designed to help people to learn more about what a spa or salon can do for you, so that you can change your look too.

Brazilian Beauty: Products And Procedures You Do Not Have To Fly To Brazil To Get

The Brazilians have come up with some amazing products and procedures that (thanks to American celebrities) have become extremely popular here in the U.S. If you have been thinking about how you can "go Brazilian", most mid- to high-end beauty salons and spas offer these services and products. Here is a shopping list of the top Brazilian products and services.

The Brazilian Wax

Men and women both have been experimenting with hair removal from the groin. For men, a Brazilian wax includes hair removal from the scrotum and the base of the penis, although you can leave just a little hair behind if you feel a little too naked removing it all. As for the ladies, a traditional Brazilian wax leaves a "soul patch" of about one inch high to about a half inch wide right above the clitoris, although the hair in this patch is often trimmed short to create a neat and tidy appearance. The "Hollywood" version removes all of your pubic hair, making you as naked as a prepubescent, but most people just opt for the traditional Brazilian wax.

The Brazilian Blowout

This beauty procedure adds several products to your hair that smooth out the frizziness, relax curls and even completely straightens your hair if you so choose. It is a bit of a misnomer, since a blowdryer is only used to activate the chemicals when you want a completely straight and very smooth look to your hair. The results of a Brazilian blowout last only three months, then your hair returns to its former unruly state. The results are supposed to remind people of all of the young bathing beauties on the beaches of Brazil, with their long, silken tresses falling down around their bare shoulders.

Brazilian Cosmetics

What Brazilian look is complete without Brazilian cosmetics? Several high-end cosmetic companies have created products using natural ingredients found in Brazilian plants, trees, fruits, nuts and mud. A shower oil made from Brazil nuts is touted as a skin-softening agent, one which many young Brazilian girls use to make their skin softer than a baby's bottom. There are also bronzers made from natural ingredients found only in the Amazon, and perfumes associated with tropical flowers found in Brazil. Some salons are even promoting and selling a "Brazil spray tan," which colors every part of you,including your buttocks, since you would be wearing a tanga or thong bikini on Brazilian beaches. It only leaves the bikini zone in front your natural skin tone.
