Earlier this month, we revealed the results of Beauty Pulse Survey, including the trend that respondents were most excited about (beachy waves, duh). But what about the meh factor? Respondents said that they are totally over ombre highlights and nail art—the trends tied, each with 22 percent of the vote. That said, the Birchbox community is generally trend-loving, with 36 percent of respondents still psyched about all the trends we listed. If you’re ready for something new, we have suggestions for you.
- If you’re over ombre highlights, why not try ombre nails created with one polish? It’s a great way to get the most out of your favorite shade.
- Or, if you need a break from nail art altogether, go for a neutral mani. But we’re not talking blush pink—check out guest blogger Anna Norman’s picks for the new neutrals.
- If crazy braids annoy you, try curling your hair with a straightener with the help of this video tutorial.
- Want a va-va-voom look for a date but over the dramatic smoky eye? Try out a strong red lip! We have a guide to applying a flawless red lip and tips from Lipstick Queen Poppy King.
From Ojon’s blow out wonder to stila’s latest multitasker, we’ve rounded up this month’s buzziest beauty launches.
