Look Like You Just Got Back From The Beach

Summer is almost upon us so it’s a perfect time to get that fresh faced glow that makes you look like you just got back from the beach. Try these and it’s guaranteed you’ll be asked where you spent your weekend, even if you spent it bingeing on Netflix.

1. Prep

All the makeup in the world won’t give you a glow if your skin isn’t in good shape. Products with Retinol speed up exfoliation, revealing fresh and beautiful skin, while helping with wrinkles.

For a soft, subtle glow use Get a Glow powder all over.

3. Complexion Enhancer

To create fabulous and defined cheekbones use Get Radiant. It only takes a pea-sized amount – a little bit goes along way! Dot the product along the cheekbones blending up and outward to accentuate this area. For added drama, you can blend it on the bridge of the nose and just above the upper lip.

4. Bronzer

Femme Couture has perfect choices of Baked Mineral Bronzer for any skin tone. To create the most natural, sun-kissed glow apply under the cheekbones, along the forehead, down the nose and along the jawline.

4. Lip Gloss

Finish off the beach look with Lip Luster lip gloss. Choosing a natural, yet high-sparkle shade will highlight your lips while looking as if you barely have anything on. My favorite is Smooth Coral. It’s a perfect universal shade and looks great on anyone.

Advice from Mom

In honor of Mother’s Day, we asked a few of the Sally Beauty team members to tell us their most-loved bits of wisdom they received from their own moms.

Here are a few of our favorites, and we hope that you share yours, too, with #SallyLovesMoms!







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.






Beachy Waves With Younger TV


  • Start with a beach spray and mist it all over the hair
  • Take the hair and wrap it around the barrel of the curling iron, leaving the ends out to give the sexy, beachy look

Prom Essentials


It’s prom season! Time to break out your high heels and sparkly dresses, and dance the night away.

With all this fun, costs can definitely add up quick. Dresses, tickets, dinner, a boutonniere for your guy, a limo if you’re feelin’ fancy – those things aren’t free, but there are affordable ways to primp for prom.

We’ve picked our a few of our favorite under $7, that will allow you to splurge on other things. Bonus: They’re perfectly portable so you can take along for touchups.

  1. Ion Shaping Plus $2.99
    There are a lot of DIY Hairstyles for prom on Pinterest. Have your bestie or your mom help you with an easy braid style. They’re so hot right now and super easy to accomplish. Finish your hairstyle off with the best hairspray with a flexible hold. Ion Finishing Solutions Shaping Plus spray adds shine and stays strong, even in high humidity (it is Springtime after all). The 1.5 oz can is the perfect size to fit into your clutch to fix any flyaways.
  2. DCNL Pearl Flower Bobbies $6.99
    Top it off your hairstyle with one of these pearl bobby pins for a touch of fashion but still a classic look.
  3. Sally Girl Mini Lipstick $0.99
    Don’t overlook Sally Girl makeup because of the affordable price. The mini lipsticks have rich color and are very long lasting. They come in 14 sassy shades and take up hardly any room in your clutch to reapply after dinner.
  4. Ardell Adore Lashes $3.79
    Eyelashes are the key to making all your photos pop. Ardell Adore Lashes in Zoey are a go-to lash for long and lush with loads of volume. These will give you “hey, look at me” lashes in no time. There are 8 other easy to apply styles to choose from.
