The Best Haircuts for YOUR FACE SHAPE

Finding the elusive perfect cut that works for you specifically ain’t always easy. Many of us go through decades of life before having that epiphany haircut that falls just so, that adds volume we never knew we had, and that air-dries just right. We’ve been wondering ourselves … is there a specific formula that we should all be heeding when we head into the salon? We asked Spoke & Weal founder and master hairstylist Jon Reyman about this, you know, for a friend.
Luckily, we live in the world of the modern woman. “The idea of the perfect haircut for your face has shifted a lot. Beauty standards have been revised,” Reyman leads with. “Previously, the ‘best face shape’ was considered oval, and cuts were customized to help create an oval face.” Imagine coming in for a cut these days and looking for a style that will shape your face, not a style that flatters your natural shape. 
Reyman expresses that a true professional today celebrates diversity instead of trying to augment it for the sake of a societal expectation. “The golden ratio is not relevant anymore. The beauty industry has transformed from one standard and embraced the truth—beauty is in all shapes, sizes, colors, and forms.” However, there is a science to finding out what works for you. According to Reyman:
—Lobs to longer hair create more length, unless you offset this with angled layers or fringe. 
—Shoulders to lower cheekbone will create width in the face. 
—As you crop up past the cheekbone, this will create more length. Add windswept fringe for more width. 
To elaborate, “Longer hair will draw eyes down and add more length to the face. If you wish to elongate your face, keep your hair longer. However, this can be offset by layering or fringe, so you can balance a long haircut with layering techniques at the cheekbone or fringe at the brow line to create more width, or to open your face up a bit if you want long hair and do not want to accentuate length in your face.” Essentially, don’t work against your shape.
If you have a narrow, longer face shape, lobs and bobs are a trusty look for you. “If you want to create more width or roundness in your face, go for a cut between the shoulders and the chin. Add fringe to further accentuate the width.” 
On shorter styles, the concept is not so black and white. Reyman explains, “Once you start to go shorter than the cheekbone and create a short haircut or pixie, this will elongate the face again. The short hair will add more volume at the top of the head and parietal ridge. A cropped, short cut that adds volume at the top of your head will create length through the face. Offset this by adding fringe to create more width.” 
Reyman also mentions a quick tip to shift the way you style your hair: moving the part. The way you part your hair will create different effects for your face shape. A center part will create more length through the face, while a side part will create more width. So before you consider chopping, try mixing things up. It’s easy to fall back on the part you’ve always done, so give a new section of your scalp its time to shine and see what it does for your overall look.

Your Balls will Thank You by Manscaped

Prep Work

If you’re going to shave your balls, the most important thing you can do is prepare the area beforehand. Regular skin care can soften the skin and the hair — down to the follicle. Both of these outcomes help the shaving outcome. They reduce the risk of tugging and snagging, and they help the razor blade glide smoothly while you shave. Clearly, shaving lubricant is important for that, but it works better when you’re taking good general care of yourself. All of these tips are aimed at that goal. 
Use Deodorant
It might sound a little weird, but deodorant is one of the key ingredients in keeping your balls from being diced when you shave. We’re not talking about slathering any old armpit stick on your genitals. That would be weird. What you need is a proper ball deodorant, designed specifically to help that part of your body achieve greater general health. 
Crop Preserver is the perfect ball deodorant. 
If you are a female you also can use this lawn mower or you can gift to any special man in your life. Please save some money like 20% on anything in the website
USE CODE “GISELL20” thank you.

Lashes 3D by Eylure

Wearing Fortuna Lashes 

Wearing Tiffany Lashes 

If you are anything like me you will not be seen on a night out without a pair of eyelashes on!
I love eyelashes I really feel you can do so much more with your eye makeup with a pair of lashes on. 
When I do big dark eyeshadows and liners I feel my natural lashes seem to disappear and blend away so by adding a pair of lashes to the makeup, it makes your lashes stand out and also compliments your makeup. They are also great to glam up natural makeup for the extra oomph when you want to really stand out.

These are Eylure 3D brand. Check them out and also for makeup details check pics on Instagram @beautybygisell

My Daughter with Uterine Fibroids

I wanted to do this post to bring awareness to all women of all ages. Take care of your bodies starting early in age. Please see this video and if your periods are heavy it’s usually a sign. Please share and subscribe. Take care of yourselves. 

What are Uterine Fibroids?
  • Fibroids are benign (non-cancer) growths of the uterus, or womb
  • Fibroids are very common in women of childbearing age.
  • Fibroids are made of muscle cells and other tissues
  • Fibroids are fed by nutrient-rich blood from the uterine arteries
  • Fibroids grow over time
  • Fibroids become smaller after a woman stops having periods (menopause)
  • The cause of fibroids is unknown
  • Risk factors for having fibroids include being African American, being 40 to 50 years of age, and being overweight or obese.
What causes fibroids? 
No one knows for sure what causes fibroids. Researchers think that more than one factor could play a role. These factors could be: 
  • hormonal (affected by estrogen and progesterone levels) 
  • genetic (runs in families) 
We do know that they are under hormonal control—both estrogen and progesterone. They grow rapidly during pregnancy, when hormone levels are high. They shrink when anti-hormone medication is used. They also stop growing or shrink once a woman reaches menopause. 
Who gets fibroids? 
There are factors that can increase a woman’s risk of developing fibroids. 
  • Age. Fibroids become more common as women age, especially during the 30s and 40s through menopause. After menopause, fibroids usually shrink. 
  • Family history. Having a family member with fibroids increases your risk. If a woman’s mother had fibroids, her risk of having them is about three times higher than average. 
  • Ethnic origin. African-American women are more likely to develop fibroids than white women. 
  • Obesity. Women who are over- weight are at higher risk for fibroids. For very heavy women, the risk is two to three times greater than aver- age. 
  • Eating habits. Eating a lot of red meat (e.g., beef) is linked with a higher risk of fibroids. Eating plenty of green vegetables seems to protect women from developing fibroids.
What are symptoms of fibroids?
Fibroids may have the following symptoms:
  • Changes in menstruation
Longer, more frequent, or heavy menstrual periods
Menstrual pain (cramps)
Vaginal bleeding at times other than menstruation
Anemia (from blood loss)
  • Pain
In the abdomen or lower back (often dull, heavy and aching, but may be sharp)
During sex
  • Pressure
Difficulty urinating or frequent urination
Constipation, rectal pain, or difficult bowel movements
Abdominal cramps
  • Enlarged uterus and abdomen
  • Miscarriages
  • Infertility
  • Fibroids also may cause no symptoms at all. Fibroids may be found during a routine pelvic exam or during tests for other problems.
What If Patient Becomes Pregnant and has Fibroids?
Asymptomatic small or medium sized fibroids alone are unlikely to present significant risk to pregnancy. However, fibroids may increase in size as a result of increased levels of hormones and blood flow to the uterus during pregnancy. The growth of fibroids may cause discomfort, feelings of pressure, or pain. Additionally, large or multiple fibroids can increase the risk of:
  • Cesarean section-The risk of needing a c-section is six times greater for women with fibroids. 
  • Breech Presentation- The baby is positioned with its legs down and head up rather than the head down.
  • Labor fail 
Please read and see more information. I included this video which is my daughter going through this. Take care of yourselves.
