Get Becky G’s #CopaAmerica Look

 If you watched the Copa America Championship game between Argentina and Chile yesterday, you know that Becky G’s look was ON POINT. #GlamSlam @iambeckyg #Copa100 #CopaAmerica2016 #CynthiaGlam x @robscheppy ✔HairTip✔ To brighten up your hair minus the damage, add extensions that are a shade lighter than your own hair. Place them near your face and throughout your hair to blend. Cut and style as you would your own. #DoveHair #StraightHair #BlondingByMe #BeckyG #Pitbull #BehindTheChair #ManeAddicts #harryjoshprotools @cloutierremix A photo posted by Cynthia Alvarez (@cynthiaglam) on Jun 26, 2016 at 8:57pm PDT Dressed in a sparkling emerald green leotard, the 19-year-old singer with Mexican roots performed Copa America’s official song “Superstar” alongside Pitbull during the closing ceremony. She definitely stole the show with her fierce style! Get Becky’s sleek hair-do with the help of stylist Cynthia Alvarez, who partnered with Dove Hair to bring her look to the next level. Cynthia explains: To begin, I sectioned her hair into four quadrants. Starting with the left back section, I dampened her hair and mixed a smoothing cream with Dove Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil and applied it evenly from roots to ends. Then, I divided each section into smaller subsections and blow dried the roots using my Harry Josh blowdryer on its ionic setting, working my way to the ends. I pulled the roots flat while blow-drying the hair to diminish her hairs natural volume. I continued this process throughout the remainder of her hair and lightly ran a flat iron through the ends. To further smooth her hair, I applied a light hold pomade over the top of her hair to add shine. Finally, I set the hair with DoveStyle+Care Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray to keep hair in place and prevent flyaways during her performance.   Chicas, do you love Becky G’s Copa America look as much as we do? Let us know if you’re going to try this hairstyle for yourself using Dove products!...

A Guide To Honing And Defining Your Personal Style

 Honing and defining your personal style is important if you want to put outfits together that really blow people away. The more you define your personal style, the more you’ll feel like ‘you’ in your outfits. The more comfortable you’ll feel. Not to mention confident! This guide will help you to hone and define so you can really start enjoying your personal style like never before! Make Vision Boards And Spot Patterns Vision boards of outfits and items you like are great, because they can help you to spot patterns that appear to be prominent in your mind. If you constantly see something crop up, then it’s obvious you love it and should include it in your wardrobe. You can make a vision board with pages out of magazines, or you can use Pinterest. You’ll soon start to see patterns when it comes to items and styles you love and want to make your own. Look at these before you go shopping. You can even put your vision board somewhere you see it often so that it stays in the forefront of your mind. You should find that you make better choices just by seeing it every day. Picture credit: Rosana Arantes – House of Styling Make A Capsule Wardrobe Making a capsule wardrobe is a good way to make the most of the items that you own. You’ll be able to quickly put an outfit together, and everything in your wardrobe will go together seamlessly. To do this you may want to start all over again. Either way, you’ll need to have a big wardrobe clear out to get rid of things you don’t wear. The main points to creating a capsule wardrobe are making sure you love the things you own, and making sure they are high quality. This way, they really last. You’ll find you don’t need to buy as much, and when you do buy, you actually buy something you love and want to wear over and over again. A quality capsule wardrobe pretty much eliminates the phrase ‘I have nothing to wear!’. Think Of Words To Describe Yourself Think of words to describe yourself and your personality. Does your style fit this? It only makes sense that the clothes you wear should be a representation of you. They are one of the main things people use to get an idea of what you’re all about. Write a list of words. Maybe ask people you love and trust to think of words too. How do you feel about them? If you’re not happy, how can you change it using your style? You have the power...

Glam Time in Miami with TRESemme

 I am grateful for wonderful invitations that come my way as a social media influencer. A recent one that I would like to share was a beauty day with TRESemme Botanique BeautyFull lines 2016. A head-turner indeed with quality formulas, botanicals blends free from parabens and dyes. A select group of Miami influencers where invited to a bungalow at the W Hotel in South Beach. We met with one of the best celebrity hair and make-up stylists in the United States and Latin America: Marco Peña. I met Marco many years ago through friends in common and have enjoyed being a witness to his growth and success. We got our beauty GLAM just like fashion models do while we got to try the TRESemme collection.  Another fun part of this invitation was that a professional photographer, Nico Stipicianos was awaiting for each one of us to be ready for a one-on-one photo session. Here is the GLAM picture and my pretty pink dress is by fabulous fashion designer Viviana Gabeiras: Thank you TRESemme for a great beauty time, photo session and product gifts! My hair is very appreciative!...
