Simplifying Your Beauty Routine In A Busy World

A beauty routine can cut into many areas of everyday life and make it so there’s less time for the things that matter, such as time with family and friends. Hairstyling is one of the most time-consuming of all daily beauty routines. Some studies have shown that women as a whole spend an average of 55 minutes a day putting on makeup and styling hair. This number can be deceiving because the more appearance conscious women will spend twice that much making sure that they look right before they walk out the door to work or to do chores for the household.

That’s a lot of time women could be spending on other more important things, like spending time with children or being less stressed at work. After all, if it takes two hours to get ready that’s two less hours sleep. Some women can’t afford to lose that much sleep because they have a very busy lifestyle.

Working women have to not only get ready for the day but they must be more presentable than those who stay at home. Given this more busy lifestyle, it’s natural that some working African-American women turn to African-American wigs to save time on hairstyling.

This presents a great business opportunity for people who work in the beauty industry to offer these wigs to customers. Wholesale African American wigs are incredibly inexpensive when pitted against the profit they bring into their businesses. If you own a hair salon or other type of beauty business, then you might want to consider offering wigs to customers.

Many women have completely overlooked the value of the wig, since in the old days they didn’t look so great and often looked unnatural. Not so today! Today’s wig is often made from genuine hair itself and others are made with material that looks so close to regular hair that no one would ever know the difference if they saw one on the average woman. A wig selection at your beauty business is going to increase your business, and thanks to wholesale prices you’re certain to get a lot of business from busy working women who want to look great without putting in the hours it takes to do so. This could be just the kind of new product that pushes your business from medium to large this year.

Personalized Fit for Specialty Apparel

Clothing that is sold off the rack generally is made to fit the sizes specified on the tags. If the piece of clothing that you picked out does not fit you, you have to choose a size that is bigger or smaller.

However, when you need to wear specialized apparel like tuxedos, formal gowns, custom military uniforms, or other outfits, you may not have the option of buying an outfit in a smaller or bigger size. Instead, you need to have it tailored to fit your frame. You can get the personalized fit to look good in the apparel by hiring professional seamstress and tailor services for this purpose.

Accurate Measurements

One of the primary benefits that comes with customized tailor services centers on getting accurate measurements for your body. When you buy off the rack, you may have to submit to wearing clothing that is too loose or too tight simply because you cannot find a size that fits you perfectly. For example, if you are a size 13 but the store only sells 12 and 14 sizes, you may have no choice but to wear something too tight or too loose.

When you have your outfit tailored, however, the seamstress or tailor can take in or let out seams and hems to accommodate your specific frame. You get an outfit that fits you perfectly and hangs on your frame without being loose or tight.

Tailors and seamstresses can also take in or let out the outfit as you put on or lose weight. This service comes in handy for women who are pregnant but want to wear their favorite outfits during their pregnancies. They can then have the outfits taken in again after they have their babies.

Affordable Services

You may have held off hiring such services because you were afraid how much they would cost. When you go online, you can find out that the services are reasonable and accessible for most customers. You do not have to compromise your budget to get a specialized outfit tailored or sewn.

If you are interested in scheduling a fitting, you can use the information online to set up the appointment. The services can be scheduled to fit your calendar.

Professional tailoring services let you fit into clothing that you need to wear for special occasions. You can find out more about customized sewing by going online today.

Elysian Closet

My friend and I had this dream of opening up our own store which sells trendy clothes and fashionable items. We have not realized this dream yet because of some constraints such as the place where we could open up a store, budget-wise, we still cannot afford to open up a boutique and we cannot afford to incur losses.

But I told her we can start small by opening an online store. We have found few suppliers who could give us high quality products but not so expensive so that we could still sell it at a lower price compared to other online stores. So we both invested time, money and effort to this little online shop and we really hope it will work out well. We started last October 1 and so far we have sold more than half of our items already.

The tops and origami skirt I am wearing in the photos below are just some of the products we were selling. Yes, I choose to sell trendy clothes that I, myself, would wear wherever I go.

The Perfect Wood Watch

I celebrated my 30th birthday last week and I am glad that a lot of people remembered and greeted me. But before my 30th birthday, a gift arrived at my doorstep. A Wood Watch, a Jord Watch, the 94A-Cherry specifically. I am not the kind of person who collects a lot of watches and wear it whenever I feel like wearing it. I am the kind where in I got only one or two time pieces that I can match whatever outfit I am wearing. Having the Jord Watch makes my fashion life a little livelier.

What I like most with my Jord Watch is that it matches my necklace and my rings that I wore everyday. I do not have to worry about my looks or if my outfits and accessories matches because having a wood watch simply makes me look great. A lot of people have seen me wearing my wood watch and they kept on asking me where did I get one. I simply lead them to the online shop where I got mine because they were amazed not only by how it looks but the materials that was used.
