Salon Makeover At Home With American Made Beauty Products

The blow-out

Start with a great shampoo and conditioner, like Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo and Special Conditioner. Follow up with a frizz fighter, like Not Your Mother's Smooth Move Frizz Control (don't miss the list of my favorite American made products for frizzy hair). Use a vented round brush with a hair dryer to create some height and smooth hair as you dry.  Once your hair is dry and smooth, set the look with hairspray, like Paul Mitchell Extra Body Firm Finishing Spray. To get more body, use dry shampoo or volumizing powder along your roots and tease the under side of your hair for the Victoria's Secret runway look.

A glowing complexion

Cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate to create a dewy canvas on which to apply your makeup.  Try a serum or beauty balm to get the fresh faced glow of a facial.  Healthy skin is beautiful skin and requires much less cover up! American made facial products we love: Demalogica face care products, Le Mieux serums, Urban Decay foundations

Fashion forward manicure

Well polished nails always look brilliant and manicures are at the fore front of fashion these days.  Pick a trendy color for the season, like the Backseat Besties shade of pink from the Essie Spring 2017 Collection, and apply.  It adds pop to your classic staples or complements an adventurous style.  For a quick mani slather on hand cream, like Supergoop Forever Young,  and massage in.  Push back cuticles with a damp wash cloth and shape with a file if needed.
