How do you find time for your pet when life gets busy?

How do you find time for your pet when life gets busy?

Real Simple

I have two children. We have two dogs and a cat, and my son has a lizard. I’m gone a lot: I own a salon in Orlando, work in New York City once a month, and go to Los Angeles often. My saving grace for my pets is my kids. When I’m traveling, I’ll use FaceTime with them and our dog Zeus. My husband set up cameras in the house that connect to our phones so we can see what the animals are up to when we aren’t there. We can talk to them over the speaker, and that comforts them.

Balayage is another low-key coloring technique that’s expected to soar again this spring — especially when done in blonde locks. The color is characterized by dye applied to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair (as seen on Cara Delevingne above), which helps bypass the need for constant root touch-ups. (Photo via Stephane Cardinale – Corbis/ Getty)

Celebrity colorist Sherry Ratay mentions that the biggest lesson is to remember that less is more. “If you go too blonde, you’ll end up with a shade that’s more appropriate for the summer season,” she points out. Ask your colorist for baby blonde highlights, as the subtle hue paired with the thin highlights will create a stunning spring hue that looks totally natural.

Take a heated towel and wrap the hair for ten minutes. Your hair will thank you!” Try Living Proof Restore Mask Treatment, a breakage-busting treatment that’s a cinch to use for even hair novices.

INSIDER:12 old-school beauty tricks that still work today

A light tease in the morning could prevent an oily scalp.

Insider

Ratay shared a tip for preventing oily build-up at the scalp. “After you finish blow-drying your hair, do a very light tease at the foundation to keep the hair off of the scalp area. This will keep any of the oil that is accumulated over a period of time off of the hair shaft.”

Vaseline can be a savior for dry lips.

“My old school beauty tip for everyone across the board is to use Vaseline morning and night on your lips,” said Sherry Ratay, celebrity colorist. “This will keep your lips soft, for the eyes and the touch. Nothing’s worse than having lips that look dry as well as kissing or receiving a kiss from someone that has dry lips.”
