time to think spring. Ditch the winter coats, put the wool sweaters away and
break out some brightly colored spring clothes. To top off your spring wardrobe
this season, think about adding a hair accessory. On your next outing to the
mall, you can grab a few trendy pieces that won't break the bank. Check out the
top three must-have hair accessories this season.
It's official -- headbands are back. That doesn't mean you can break
out the big padded headband you rocked in the 90s, this season's headbands are
smaller and usually have an embellishment. A thin headband with a cloth flower
attached is popular. Elastic headbands are hot too. A lot of the elastic
headbands have a jeweled embellishment, like a diamond-covered bow.
Wrap a scarf around your updo to add a little panache to your look. A
scarf sits in the same place as a headband, on top of the head and just behind
the ears. With scarfs, bright colors are the way to go. You can wear a simple
black dress or a solid colored suit and the pop of color from the scarf will
kick your look up a notch.
Twist your hair back into a messy bun and slide a pearled comb on top to
turn your look from gym-ready to job-ready. Combs with gems, rhinestones and
pearls are trendy right now. Typically, just one comb is enough to transform
your look. You don't want three or four jeweled combs holding up your hair.
While they can keep hair away from your face, combs should be used for
decoration. For $20 or less you can grab a few of these accessories to put some sparkle into your spring.

St. Patrick's Day is on the way. But
that's not the only reason you'll be seeing green this spring. According to
Pantone, the world-renowned color experts, emerald green is the 2013 Color of
As daring as last year's Color of the Year, tangerine tango, emerald green is
bright and bold. And just as makeup artists found a way last year to incorporate
that tangy orange color on lips, you can expect to see emerald green everywhere
It starts with the eyes. From Miami to Milan women will be rocking emerald
green eye shadows and liners. You can wear it matte at work or blinged out with
bedazzled lashes at night. No matter what your style or skin color, emerald
green seems to wear well.
Although emerald is the spring show stopper Pantone forecasts that Poppy Red,
Nectarine, African Violet, Lemon Zest, Dusk Blue, Grayed Jade, Tender Shoots
and Linen will also be hot colors in fashion and makeup this spring.
Of course makeup manufacturers will find fun fancy names for these colors. What
you want to look for are the shades and the trend. The trend appears to be
balancing bold with bland, as in loud colors with soft pastels.
Expect to find Poppy Red on lips. A muted, almost faded red, poppy gives lips a
youthful more natural look than more dramatic reds, like fire engine.
Considered romantic, poppy also works as a blush.
An alternative to emerald eyes is to go with Monaco Blue, a rich cobalt color.
Whether matte or with a hint of shimmer, this blue dazzles as an eye shadow for
the evening. Finish the look with a sapphire blue liner and extra long lashes
for added drama.
Purples have been popular for the past ten years. But this year, instead of the
deep plums and eggplant shades, go for softer lilac-like purples such as
African Violet. Sweet and feminine, this soft purple can unleash your inner
girlie girl as an eye color, lip gloss or even a cheek color. It's like pink
with a little more personality.
Speaking of pink, screaming pinks such as fuchsia have faded to make way for colors
like Dusk Blue, a soft baby blue that compliments Monaco and Cobalt. Not as
harsh as the 1970s sky blue that resurfaced a few years ago, this new baby blue
has a washed out feel and can transition from spring and summer to fall.
That's the best thing about the new springs colors; they are transitional and
versatile. With floral prints continuing to trend in spring dresses and
accessories, you can experiment with many of these colors.
The key is to have fun. Don't be afraid to layer. Sprinkle a bit of glitz over
any of these colors for instant glam.
This spring is about combine and contrast. Soft meets bold, bright balances
dark and matte makes as a canvas for glitter. Yes glitter, shimmer and shine.
If it sparkles, you can find it in makeup this spring.
As sequined and embellished fashion remains trendy it seems only natural that
gems would wind up on our faces. Emerald anyone?
If you're looking for ways to pump up the volume on your lashes,
getting extensions might be your solution. Eyelash extensions can be

eye-popping to subtle. They're good for women with fine or weak lashes.
can get real mink lashes or fake, it's a personal preference really.
Mink lashes are popular with celebrities because they look and feel like
real lashes. Plus, they're so fine and lightweight they tend to stay in
place longer. While they have many benefits, they are more expensive.
They also take a bit longer to apply. Expect about two hours to apply
mink lashes, as each lash is set in place one at a time.
