1. Neon nail polish can be tricky to work with, and it’s so disappointing when it’s not as bright on the nail as it is on in the bottle. The solution? Start with a base of white nail polish BEFORE you apply the neon color. It will make the finish smooth, opaque and super bright.

2. Wanting to make a statement with your shadow? Dip your brush into water before you swirl it on the palette. Applying your shadow when it’s wet will make it vibrant. Try this trick with baked eye shadow for really impressive results.

3. To make your colorful eyeliner stand out, first line your eyes with white eyeliner and then add your final shade on top of that base.

4. Instagram is full of trendsetters with crazy and fun rainbow-colored hair, and they all get their color that bright by pre-lightening to the level specified on the box. This will give your hair shaft more grip so the color stays put, and gives you true-to-the-package contemporary color

1. Divide hair in to four manageable sections, and secure with clips.

2. To allow for a more natural-looking ombre effect, heavily backcomb hair from mid-shaft to the ends.

3. Place a foil underneath a 1” piece of hair from the first section. Using the ombre applicator brush, apply Blond Brilliance Hair Lightener from mid-shaft to the ends. Place a second foil over and secure it with a clip. Repeat this process through all four sections of hair. Once desired level of lift/lightening (check the progress often!) has been achieved, rinse, shampoo and dry.

4. Apply Ion Color Brilliance Brights in Magenta to pre-lightened sections of hair, using a tint brush. Allow Brights to process for 20-40 minutes, until desired level of intensity is reached. The longer the color sits, the more vibrant the end result will be. Rinse and cleanse using a color safe shampoo. Follow with Ion After Color Treatment to close the cuticle and lock in color.

Summer Favorites

1. Ion Beach Cooler Tote
Since I don’t have a pool myself, I spend my summer hopping from house to house, enjoying the hospitality of friends and family who are lucky enough to have one. Lest I become too much of a mooch, I always tote along my own drinks. This cooler will be getting a ton of use once it gets warm enough to swim. Bonus: it’s FREE with the purchase of 3 full size Ion Hair Care or 6 Ion Color Brilliance Hair Color or 1 full size Ion styling tool.

2. FingerPaints Inkblot Blue
Neon has been on trend for awhile now, and it’s not going away any time soon. FingerPaints has a limited edition of hot neon colors that will look so cool on your nails. Pro tip: Apply a base coat of white polish before using neon colors to make them really POP.

3. GVP Blue Wave Travel Flat Iron Limited Edition
Everyone wants to look flawless on summer trips, but who wants to take up valuable space in your suitcase with a bunch of appliances? Not me! I always pack a mini iron that can pull double duty by straightening and curling, so I have more room for the essentials a.k.a. lots of shoes.

4. L’Oreal Technique Liquid Chalk Temporary Intense Hair Makeup
Tis the season to be playful! These temporary colors are so fun and vibrant – even on dark hair. They last for a few washes, which makes them perfect to experiment with.

5. Femme Couture Get Corrected CC Cream
I can’t stand to feel like I’m wearing makeup when it’s hot, so I trade in my regular foundation for a tinted moisturizer once summer hits. This CC Cream makes my skin look natural, but enhanced.

6. Ion Summer Solutions
Sun, sand, chlorine and salt water…super fun but also super damaging for your hair. Be sure to step up the moisture to keep those tresses in shape, and use a shampoo that removes impurities while adding protection.

7. ICON Eyewear Ladies Fashion Sunglasses
Wayfarers are my thing. I have them in every color, and appreciate the fact that they never snag on my hair and pull out my ponytail like sunglasses with nose pads can. This turquoise shade looks amazing with a (hopefully faux) tan.

8. Caribbean Gold Broad Spectrum SPF 50
Long gone are the days of not caring about skin protection. Now that I’m older and wiser, I ALWAYS bring high spf sunscreen wherever I go. Since I make sure to reapply throughout the day, I prefer a spray like this one by Caribbean Gold for easy application.

9. Heel to Toe Natural Lava Pumice Stone
Just say no to flip-flop feet. I keep a lava pumice stone in the shower, so it’s always handy for a quick scrub to keep my heels soft and exfoliated.

Place both hands into the Secret Color™ Headband:

1. Slip the Secret Color™ Headband over your head with the extension at the back of your head and position band around the top of your head like a headband.

2. Pull the sides of your hair out in front of the hair band to blend in with your extension.

3. Take one final look and you’re ready to go!
