Hair Trends To Try This Summer (Or Now!!!!!).

With summer right around the corner, you’re likely switching out your coat for a light jacket, open-toed heels for boots, and removing the comforter from your bed.  The transition to warmer weather can feel like a sigh of relief after shedding layers, and it rings true for hairstyles, too. The question is: when you think about summer looks, which style will you choose?

Celebrity stylist Cody Renegar (Gwyneth Paltrow, Allison Sweeney, Marie Osmond) predicts we’ll see these hairstyles this summer:

●      Braids! A braided hairstyle is a great way to let your creativity shine through.  From French braids to baby braids, it’s one of the lowest-maintenance, highest-style options around.

●      Shag with shattered layers. Cut shoulder-length and heavily tiered, this retro style gives the wearer a casual undone, yet chic, look. Best of all, it doesn’t require any hair styling to look perfect, and it looks great on everyone, no matter the face shape. 

●      Messy low Bun. The epitome of a laid-back vibe of summer, this look infuses romance and sophisticated elegance into one. Let wisps of hair haphazardly fall out to capture the look.  It transitions well from day into night.

●      Claw Clips aren’t going anywhere! The must-have accessory for cool gals everywhere, they are fun, versatile and the perfect way to throw your hair up and or remove pieces from your face. 

●      Ash/Mushroom Tone Color – While summer is synonymous with warm tones like gold and caramel, opt for a new cool-toned color like Ash/Mushroom. The multi-dimensional hair shade gets its rich blended color from an ashy base that’s layered with highlights and lowlights. Sticking with only cool to neutral brown and blonde shades is the ultimate key to getting the earthy tint.

Since 2007, Works & Process has produced sold-out performances of Sergei Prokofiev’s charming children’s classic Peter & the Wolf directed and narrated by Isaac Mizrahi. After over one hundred performances, Mizrahi was inspired to create an homage to this iconic work, and during the pandemic Works & Process commissioned Third Bird. Highlighting a cast of eight, including a flying bluebird, a swimming duck, and a running ostrich, Third Bird celebrates each individual’s unique strengths.
Throughout the pandemic, Works & Process continued to provide opportunities for artists and pioneered the bubble residency making it possible for artists to safely gather and create. The spring 2022 season will feature the official world premieres of works created by New York artists – many representing historically marginalized performing arts cultures – and incubated during the peak of the pandemic inside 2020-21 Works & Process bubble residencies. Third Bird was developed in an April 2021 Works & Process bubble residency at the Catskill Mountain Foundation and a November 2021 Works & Process LaunchPAD “Process as Destination” residency at The Church, Sag Harbor. Alongside premieres of commissions, Works & Process will present performance excerpts and artist discussions about new works prior to their premieres at leading organizations including BAAD!, Federal Hall, Glimmerglass Festival, The Metropolitan Opera, and New York City Ballet.

Buying an engagement ring is nerve-wracking and exciting at the same time. Understanding the 4Cs, determining your budget, conflicting advice from others, and choosing the different styles and options can quickly confuse you.

Remember, buying a ring is a considerable expense, so you want to make sure to do it right. To streamline things, here we will discuss some of the tips to buy a perfect engagement ring for your future bride. So, let’s get started:

  1. Understand The 4Cs

The 4Cs are considered the global standards for assessing the quality of a ring and comparing it with others. So, the 4Cs are:

  • Color – Buy a diamond ring in the colorless range of G-I.
  • Cut – Cuts on the diamond ring are the most important factor to consider. Make sure the stone looks excellent and grabs attention.
  • Clarity – Diamond clarity refers to the absence of inclusions and flaws.
  • Carat – Carat weight determines the apparent size.

Once you understand the 4Cs of buying women’s engagement rings, you need to prioritize the most important C for you. Prioritizing 4Cs can help you narrow down your search to buy the perfect ring for your future bride.

  1. Get The Right Size

This may seem obvious, make sure to get the right size for her that can comfortably fit in her fingers. And to do that, make sure to get the correct measure of her fingers. After all, you don’t want to make it loose for her and increase the chances of falling off.

  1. Choose The Metal

The type of metal you choose for the ring can either make or break the overall look of the piece. As per the latest engagement ring trends, white gold and platinum are gaining popularity and it makes a sleek and modern look.

  • Platinum – Because platinum is soft in its pure state, it is typically alloyed with other metals such as iridium, ruthenium, and cobalt. Platinum is extremely durable and corrosion-resistant.
  • Gold – Gold has been used in jewelries for hundreds and thousands of years. It has the potential to enrich the overall appearance of the piece. Like platinum, gold is also soft and typically alloyed with other metals. Also, there are two gold options available: Rose Gold and White Gold.

However, there are some metals that scratch easier than others. So, be sure to choose the right one that fits your budget.

  1. Shop From A Reputed Jeweler

Buying an engagement ring is the most expensive purchase you will ever make, so take your time and shop wisely. When you have a ring in mind, make sure to buy it from a certified jeweler.

Summing Up

Choosing the right engagement ring can be challenging, but you can streamline the process by following the tips mentioned above. The ring you choose should celebrate her personality with a unique and special symbol of love.

The estate’s modern and classical art collection, architecture, and expansive gardens make it one of the top-rated cultural attractions in New York State. Visitors learn the story of the Rockefellers, beginning with John D. Rockefeller, founder of Standard Oil, whose business acumen made him the richest man in America in his day. He later became the country’s first significant philanthropist and by his death in 1937, he had given away more than half his fortune through various philanthropic programs.
