How To:
Boxer Braid

Summer calls for hair that's hot AND effortless.
Enter the ring: boxer braids.

Also known as Dutch Braids, they're a fresh take on French braids, with the plaited part sitting on the outside.

The NEW Stylista Braid Hair Styling Milk will give you the grip you need to rock this look with confidence. Enriched with Coconut Milk, you'll get added shine and up to 30% less frizz. The cherry on top is the soft tousled waves you're left with when you take them out.

How to:

Step 1: Smooth Stylista Braid Milk onto dry hair. Apply evenly to the lengths for extra grip and don’t forget the ends too.

Step 2: Divide hair into two equal sections by splitting down the middle.

Step 3: Take a small section of hair near your forehead and divide into three sections. Weave left section underneath the middle section (not over the top, as you do with French braids). Then, weave right section under the new middle section.

Step 4: Repeat and keep adding in more hair from the root as you move down your head. Pro tip: Keep braids nice and tight as you’re braiding to help them last longer (and you can always loosen them after!)

Step 5: Once you get to the nape of your neck, finish off like you would a normal braid. Secure the end with a hair tie and repeat on the other side!

Step 6: Smooth Stylista Braid Milk over the top of your plait for added hold and natural shine.

Casting Creme Gloss
Q And A

See the answers to questions that the public have asked to help alleviate your first time colouring fears.

Is this product applied to wet or dry hair? 
To use this product, wet your hair without washing it and towel dry thoroughly. 

Do I shampoo when removing this colour?
No, to remove we advise you add a little lukewarm water and massage thoroughly into the hair. Thoroughly rinse until the water runs clear and apply a generous amount of the shine enhancing conditioner with royal jelly. 

Can you use Casting Crème Gloss on previously coloured hair? 
Yes you can. 

How often can I use this product? 
We recommend leaving at least 6 weeks in between colour applications. On your next application you should follow Method 2 for previously coloured hair. 

I want to radically change my hair colour, can I use Casting Crème Gloss? 
Casting Crème Gloss is designed to enhance natural hair colour rather than to dramatically lighten or darken your hair. If the colour applied is darker than your natural hair colour, new growth at the root will appear more pronounced. 

How long does this colour last? 
Casting Crème Gloss will gradually fade from your hair. However, results can vary depending on your hair history and condition. 

Does it contain ammonia? 
Casting Crème Gloss does not contain ammonia. 

I have just permed my hair, when can I apply Casting Creme Gloss? 
We recommend you wait at least two weeks after using a relaxer, a perm or a straightening process on the hair before applying Casting Crème Gloss. We advise you perform a strand test before colouring your hair as perms and relaxers can leave hair more porous. Porous hair can cause colour to be absorbed faster.

I have long hair, how many boxes of Casting Crème Gloss will I need?
If your hair is below shoulder length or very thick, you may need two boxes to ensure even application.

What is the development time of Casting Crème Gloss?
Always follow the instruction leaflet. The development time for each shade is explained here. Casting Crème Gloss has a development time of 20 minutes. If you require extra coverage of grey hairs add an extra 5 minutes. Start timing as soon as you've finished applying the colour.

If you are refreshing your existing colour or if your hair has been coloured less than 3 months ago, apply to your roots and leave for 15 minutes. Then apply the remaining mixture through the lengths, massage in and leave to develop for a further 5 minutes. 

How do I protect my colour from fading? 
We recommend you should use Elvive Colour Protect shampoo and conditioner, which is formulated to specifically meet the needs of colour treated hair.

Paris Fashion Week
Six trends MUA's loved

Ever doing your makeup and get hit by déjà vu? We all have an autopilot routine (especially after snoozing the alarm one time too many). But adding some artistry keeps it way more fresh.

Lucky for us, we’ve got an injection of inspo straight from Paris Fashion Week. The city of love and the coolest chicks, was the perfect destination for us to host the week’s most inclusive catwalk. Floating on the river Seine, the runway was open for anyone to watch. We didn’t stop breaking rules there though. Here’s the 6 hottest ‘Parisienne’ makeup trends from the show, created by global makeup director, Val Garland.

Think bright eyeshadows, lots of colour. Shake up your lipstick and make it lip art. Be daring. Your makeup brushes aren't different to a painter's.

It's all about blushing pink, of course. Pat gently onto the apples of your cheeks, but then go a bit more wild. Brush up onto the temples for this season’s twist on no-makeup-makeup.

With a very French dose of irony, magnify your lashes. Add another coat. Then another. This is all about an over-the-top, almost spidery style.

It wouldn’t be a 2018 catwalk without a bit of grit. Go edgy, with a two-tone palette for the lip.

Time for some lip service. Red, for that quintessential, elegant look. Keep the face pared back for maximum impact.

If you’re not feeling empowered, you’re not doing it right. Dewy, glowing skin meets the darkest, berry stained lips.
