It’s almost December – the time of year when we’re shopping for gifts and checking off our Christmas list, decorating the tree and awaiting all the lovely, warm and cozy festivities that awaits us. And for some of you ladies, you may also have another important thought in mind: the preparation and anticipation for Prom 2013. Although it seems like its months away, you know deep down, that now is the time to get things started. While most of you are already scouring the stores in search for amazing long prom dresses to choose (which by the way, we have tons of fab-worthy styles to peruse), you may want to also consider other areas that need to be primed and prepped ahead of time – such as your precious, supple skin! It’s not only a matter of drinking the right amounts of H2O, eating your fruits and veggies and setting a proper workout schedule, but also finding the right set of products for that extra boost of glow. Achieve shiny locks and a healthy scalp, gleaming and vibrant skin and hydrated lips with our beauty/skincare picks of 2012….in preparation for the Prom 2013 season.

At Camille La Vie everyone is very in tune with the freshest fashions and have a huge love for fabulous chic style. Of course our favorite fashions are our own dresses and accessories, however, there are so many more ways to show off your beauty from hairstyles, to nail art, to new makeup trends. Our passion for fashion has created some office Fashionistas that are always willing to share their newfound beauty products, tips, and tricks to the rest of the office and now we want to share with YOU! One way to change up your look completely everyday is to try different hairstyles. We’ve asked some of the office Fashionistas what their favorite looks are when it comes to summer hairstyles, then we also asked which hair product they use that they absolutely cant live without!
These are the 5 summer hairstyles & products you need to try:
Jessica D’s response:
1.Natural Curls & Big Sexy Hair Products ($17) “I really love when girls keep their hair very natural looking in the summer, there’s no need to fight the heat by trying to keep naturally curly hair straight in hot weather. To keep my curls under control I do use many different products but my favorite has to be my huge spray bottle of Big Sexy Hair Spray and Play Hairspray. It keeps my natural curls intact without it looking wet or heavy, I Love it!”
2.Long Beachy Hair & MoroccanOil ($43) “Summer is all about the beach, pools, and vacations and I like hair the best when it has more of a natural wave and its long and flowing. Whether it’s real beach hair or recreated with a curling iron, long luscious wavy hair is so beautiful. This type of look can be hard to do sometimes in heat and that’s why I Love MoroccanOil. It helps keep frizz away while making my hair so soft and smooth and it smells great too! I can’t do my hair in the morning without it!”
3.Sleek Pony & Prive Shampoo and Conditioner ($53) “I’m thinking more elegant night out on the town summer hair but I really love sleek ponytail hairstyles, especially when a band of hair is wrapped around the ponytail holder I think its looks so polished. A hair care product line that I absolutely love and recommend is Prive. This company is all organic and it smells so great! I really love the Shampoo, Conditioner, and Hairspray. In fact, I always carry the hairspray in my purse to work, you never know when you will need it, and the best part is the bottles and cans allow you to use every last drop, there’s no throwing out good hair products.”
4.Intricate Braids & Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Leave in Conditioner ($3) “My favorite summer hairstyle look would have to be braided hair. I’m fascinated by intricate braids simply because it really takes talent and honestly, I’m really not sure I could do half of the things I see in pictures to myself, but I think its so cool! I stick to simple braids but it looks so cute in up-do looks or when your hair is down. My favorite hair product would have to be the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Leave in Conditioner. I use most of the Aussie products because I have really curly hair but this conditioner leaves even my hair so smooth and tangle free, I’m hooked! The Aussie products are also cheaper too but even so they really work great.”
Jessica J’s response:
5.Pin Straight Hair & Frederic Fekkai Technician Color Care Shampoo ($39) “I love to see girls with pin-straight hair and I love to have mine straight too even in the summer, the flat iron is my best friend. I think it looks very chic and it always goes nicely with a multitude of outfits. My personal favorite hair care product that I need in my arsenal is definitely Frederic Fekkai’s Technician Color Care Shampoo because I do color my hair and it makes my hair so soft while being very gentle on my color. It helps keep it shiny and beautiful for a longer amount of time, its fantastic.”
