Finally, you have found the right partner and everything is set for your ‘big day’ but one question remains – what to serve at the ceremony? The answer to this question depends on two factors – your budget and the tastes of your guests. The wide variety of choices makes it obvious to get into this dilemma. We shall deal with it here.

What makes a wedding event awesome is food and drinks, along with some interior decoration. So, serving drink and food combos is probably the best idea that you can consider to make your wedding a memorable, grand and satisfying event. A study concludes that the amount and kind of alcohol people consume largely depends on their age, marital status, and other such factors. Make sure you make proper research before going ahead. Before getting into the topic here are a few things that you should know about hosting wedding treats with a glass of Blackcraft.

Styles of serving food at events

Back then, couples had only two choices – a sit-down dinner and a buffet wedding. Either the guests sit down and the waiters serve them food or the guests serve themselves. But now there are many more innovative options.

#1 Conventional sit-down dinner

Your guests sit at their tables and the waiters serve food to them.

Pros
● Each of your guests gets to taste all the food.
● Cost effective as the number of dishes will be limited.

Cons
● Many waiters are to be hired for serving.
● If picky eaters are on your guest list, then they may not finish their plates.

#2 Buffet- style dinner

Here, there will be a food counter with the plates and the other things arranged. Waiters will be serving the food items or the guests get to serve themselves, it depends on your caterers. The guests come in when the counter is open, serve themselves whatever they wish to eat.

Pros
● Lesser cost as a lesser number of people is hired for serving.
● Your guests can select what they wish to so the wastage will be less.

Cons
● Buffet food sometimes seems like hostel food – standing in a queue for food. If your guests are not used to such serving, better not serve this.
● You might have to rent the serving pieces, linens, chafing dishes, etc if your caterer does not provide it.
● Each table might have to wait for its turn and lines may also form. Plus, it may take quite some time before all the tables get their first round of food.

#3 Serve-it-Yourself Food stations

This has an advantage over buffet – the food counter is open for a longer time and is as satisfying as a plated meal. Here, food items are arranged in separate counters based on the category. The guests have a little more independence to roam about and choose what to eat.

Pros
● The guests will love the variety of foods served and choose whatever they wish to eat.
● It has scope for good decoration, which will add to the visuals of the wedding.

Cons 
● The reception site will require more room to accommodate food stations.
● Might require more chefs if you plan for interactive or live stations. This adds to your catering bills.

#4 Family style Wedding dinners

This is similar to sit-down dinners. Guests are assigned tables and the servers serve each table with food. Large portions of food items are served to each table so that the guests can help themselves whatever they wish to eat.

Pros
● Guests can have as much food as they like.
● Mealtime is very efficient as guests can start eating as soon as the food is served.

Cons
● Extra food will add to your catering costs.
● Your budget may increase as you may need to rent the extra platters and serving items.

Now that we have covered the food, let us now get into drinks.

Serving Drinks

Any event, not to forget the wedding event is incomplete without a glass of alcohol. Here are a few ideas on serving drinks on your wedding day.

#1 Bring in signatures

Make your wedding event unique and memorable with signature cocktails. Let them match your color scheme, so that it becomes a part of the visuals. Let it represent your personality (like serving the specialty of your hometown), name them after your bridal party featuring cocktails from both sets of parents.

#2 An Open Bar

While it is a little rude to have a cash bar at your wedding, you can always have an open bar in the event. It is a very good idea to serve affordable classics like black velvet whiskey. If you are on a tighter budget, you can always skip the costlier ones and serve affordable drinks like beer, wine or simply just a signature drink. 

#3 Extras

Some extra accessories like monogrammed napkins, stemless wine glasses with your wedding date or initials on it give an extra personal touch to the event, making it memorable. You may also want to serve specially brewed wine for your wedding or maybe even serve special customized chocolate gifts with your initials engraved on them. Just get creative!!

Now, we shall look into a few amazing drinks and dine combinations for your wedding day.

#1 Vodka and Fish

Vodka, though usually a base for cocktails, is famous in vodka loving countries like Russia and Poland as an accompaniment with food, preferably fish. Some of the fish-dishes that go well with vodka are smoked fish like smoked maceral, smoked eel and smoked salmon; Blinis with smoked fish toppings and Caviar.

#2 Domaine Bousquet 2005 Chardonnay and Seafood

Domaine Bousquet 2005, which is a white wine is suitable for white meats and seafood, both in visuals and taste. This perfectly pairs with light food such as lobster, crab or shrimp with pasta cream sauces. Snapper is tailor-made for Chardonnay.

#3 Buronga Hill Estate 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon and Beef

This red-grape full-bodied wine pairs wonderfully with beef and lamb dishes, especially with foods that are heavier and have a lot of rich sauces like stir-fried beef and/or ribs.
If you choose to replace Sauvignon with Blanc, you can pair with chicken, seafood and vegetable dishes.

#4 Beer and Chicago style hot dogs

Pair a light flavored beer like Sam Adams Light Beer with strong flavors of onions, peppers, and mustard, so that the strong tastes don’t fight with each other.

#5 Torpedo and Hot Dogs with avocado and chips

The mild tastes of avocados, lime, tomatoes, and raw onions go well with a robust beer like Sierra Nevada’s Torpedo. Perfect for a day wedding.

#6 Rye and chocolate biscuits

Full-bodied rye along with Tesco chocolate biscuits make an ideal pair. The spiciness of rye contracts with the pleasant sweetness of brown sugar in chocolate biscuits. Whether you would like your biscuit to be crispy or chewy, rye is the best one that you can choose.

#7 Cotton Candy and Champagne

Cotton candy, or basically any sweet goes well with bubbly drinks like Champagne and Prosecco. Make your wedding memorable and happy with sweets.

#8 Bourbon and Meat

Bourbon, along with its caramel sweetness which comes through aging in charred in new barrels, pairs well with food with a caramelized component like seafood, vegetables, meat, dessert, etc.

Tips for Pairing Food with Drinks

Before looking into the food and drink pair for your wedding, here are a few tips to pair them up.

#1 Acidic Drinks with Heavier food

If you are serving a heavy meal, acidic drinks go well with it. Pasta with cream or chow mein or even salads dressed in a citrus vinaigrette has greater benefits from acidic drinks. Alcoholic and acidic drinks refresh the palate and also aids in digestion.

#2 Alcohol Levels

Always remember that higher the alcohol level, spicier your food becomes. So, if you are serving spicy food and your guests have an appetite for spicy stuff, serve stronger alcohols with food.

#3 Sweet drinks

A golden rule is that sweet drinks complement spicy and salty foods. So, if your guests do not like spicy stuff much, you may serve a sweet drink along with spicy food. This balances the spicy and salty foods.

#4 Consider other factors like texture

Crunchy, fried foods go well with bubbly and sparkling drinks. Sparkling wine and fried chicken actually pair with each other well.

Picture Perfect Wedding

If you wish to make your wedding ideal for pictures, you may want to add viniq to the menu of drinks. Viniq, being a shiny drink with the taste of vodka, Moscato and natural fruits, adds luster to your wedding party. This will make your wedding memorable and your guests will remember the event for a long time if the decoration if managed well.

So, this was all that we had to tell you about the best drink and dine combos for the Big Day. Keep these tips in mind and also serve the dish – drink combinations at your wedding party. This helps to make your wedding a grand and memorable event.

Growing old is inevitable, and many people tend to lose their personality and focus because of their looks. But you should not become a defeatist simply because the society esteems youthfulness on top of the experience that comes with age. You can do all you can to avoid what people view or say about your aging.

In this post, you will learn how to defeat ageism without a physical fight or lawsuit. It all revolves around your personality. What you do for yourself defines how you will tackle this issue of ageism with style. The benefits include better moods and psychological stability and much more.

Here are the 7 stylistic ways to address ageism while you are growing older.

1. Learn How to Use Technology

Are you the “too old to learn” person the youth are talking about? Never mind. You can prove to yourself and them that their notion about your abilities is wrong. By learning to use today’s communication channels and the use of smartphones, smart TVs, computers, email, Facebook, etc., you will catch up with the trends that make youths feel special.

You also become special because not all old people adapt to the trends in the tech industry which will help you to make your communication easier. And maybe to play games that will sharpen your minds to avoid aging?



2. Get Involved in Various Activities

Whether you are at family gatherings or in a social activity gathering, you can prove that you are not as old as people think, and this will help you fight the ageism that is following you everywhere. By taking part in the various mental challenge and physical activities, you exercise your body and mind to remain young as well.

Harvard University has published research that shows how testosterone helps to increase both mental and physical strength which diminishes with age. The anabolic steroids Canada supplies can help to boost and improve all the effects of testosterone hormone in people who cannot produce enough (a common phenomenon in aging people).



3. Remain Optimistic About Aging

Growing older is not all about the bad things you hear. Your growing old comes with its benefits as well. Some of the attributes of aging include a higher level of wisdom and life experience. Still, there are many young people who are interested to sit close to their seniors so they can learn something about life. Focusing on these positive impacts of old age will help you curb the fears of discrimination.

4. Exercise to Remain Vibrant

Exercises are not only for obese people. Anybody who participates in various exercises will make their muscles and the different body systems more active. Improved blood circulation, breathing, and activation of body muscles and tissues will help you to remain younger and stronger as well as put off any age-related illnesses. Nobody will notice you are growing older.

5. Eat Well for Physical Performance

For you to remain young and do your tasks by yourself, you need to monitor your diet. When people hear the word “diet” all they think about is weight loss. Some people would think of staying away from sugar and starch, which is wrong. Talking about sugary foods, the health benefits of dark chocolate will amaze you. You need to lick a bar while resting in your balcony.

The next time you go out shopping, buy natural energy foods that will help you stay stronger without having to rely on too much fatty and “unhealthy” foods. If you have an aging friend or colleague, you can buy them chocolate gifts as well. Remind them to stay young and tackle ageism together. 



6. Plan for Your Future

Sometimes, these people who tease others about their age look at what you have achieved so far after growing old. If you can plan your retirement carefully, you will be in the position to take care of yourself without interrupting people around. The discrimination will vanish when you are prepared for your old days.

7. Interact with Younger and Busy People

When you are around or among young people who are active in their activities, you will get the encouragement and enthusiasm to push on with your own. For instance, if you are in college together, you will stop feeling tired and start working hard like them. In the end, you will amaze everyone how young your mind is and that your abilities are not impaired with age.

Summing Up

Standing your ground and speaking up against discrimination is another viable option to quieten the busybodies. But consider this as the last option and work on building yourself for the better. You also need to ensure that people understand that you are serious, but avoid commotion and useless confrontations.

For every woman, pregnancy is an important phase that requires special care and attention to the ladies expecting a child. The care includes the intake of food rich in nutrients. A diet rich in vitamins and minerals is important for the health of the mother and her baby. Mothers take all the necessary precaution to make sure that their child is healthy. Deficiency of any nutrient can affect your baby in several ways. One such deficiency is the deficiency of Vitamin D. 

As per a new study in Canada, low vitamin levels during pregnancy can cause a higher risk of cavities in the teeth of their kids. Similarly, earlier studies have also linked vitamin D deficiency in mothers with defects in the enamel of their kids’ teeth. And we know how such defects can have a higher risk of tooth decay over time. Clearly, researches show a link between lack of vitamin D and risk of cavities which can’t be ignored. 


 
The study in Canada 

As per a study conducted in Canada, it has been found that there is a correlation between the lower levels of Vitamin D during pregnancy and the Oral Health of the toddlers. The deficiency of Vitamin D will result in a lower level of calcium and phosphorous which are important for the betterment of the teeth of your baby. The problems that will rise due to such deficiency is a defect in the enamel of the tooth and early tooth cavities in your baby. 

The study was conducted in 206 pregnant women at the starting of the third trimester and the 135 infants who were not more than 16 months old. The results were as follows:

#1) 21 women were found to have an adequate level of Vitamin D which was around 10.5% approx. The rest were found deficient
#2) Out of the 135 infants – 21% had the defect in the enamel and nearly 33.6% were facing the issue of early tooth decay

Through this study, it was found that the mother of the infants who faced enamel defects has a lower concentration of Vitamin D during pregnancy and the mother of infants facing the issue of early tooth decay had significantly lower levels of Vitamin D during pregnancy. And defect in the enamel ultimately lead to the issue of cavities in the teeth. 

Nutrition and pregnancy 

This study clearly indicates as to how important it is to take good care of the expected mother during the pregnancy. For this, they should have a diet rich in all the minerals and vitamins. If nutrition is proper, there will be a positive effect on the would-be child. Plus, they should follow the daily routine as prescribed by their gynecologist. If after the visit it was found that the expected mother lacks Vitamin D, then either they will advise a supplement or a tablet to overcome that deficiency or will suggest natural remedies such as consume sun rays, for this you need to spend some time in the sunlight as it is a good and direct source of Vitamin D. 



Here is now nutrition should be during pregnancy: 

1) Consuming food rich in Vitamin D such as eggs, mushrooms, wild salmon, etc.
2) In addition to this, reducing the intake of carbohydrates will also help as it reduces the need for Vitamin D.
3) Also, the intake of sugar should lessen.
4) It is very important to take the preventive steps at the beginning itself so that the mothers do not face any such deficiency
5) The dietary intake should increase along with the supplements for Vitamin D.
6) Every woman should intake around 4000 units of Vitamin D every day to ensure that the baby does not suffer from any after effect.

Nutritional diet and oral care of a toddler 

Even if the deficiency of vitamin D during pregnancy can increase the risk of cavities in toddlers, there are ways mother can use post birth that can keep the oral health of their wards in check. With the proper and right diet and with oral care, mothers can keep safe the oral health of their kids. Not only during pregnancy, but the improvement in the nutritional diet of your toddler when the tooth has just started erupting or during early childhood can protect your teeth from cavities. 



Here are some of the tips for diet and oral care of toddler: 

1) The toddlers should be given an adequate amount of food rich in all the nutrients     
2) The oral care routine of your child also involves visiting a dentist for this you can look out for the best pediatric dentist near me and can take your child to the kids’ specialist
3) Taking your child to a dentist early will prove to be beneficial for their Oral Health and overall health in the future.
4) Kids dental care is equally important and should never be avoided in any circumstance 

Clearly, the risk of cavities in kids can be minimized with the right diet and oral care. Plus, pregnant women can also take care of their diet and have proper intake of vitamin D to keep low the risk of tooth decay in all condition.

Fashion is an ever-changing dynamic. New trends replace old ones and old ones get recreated every day. A style of any century is accepted by fashion critics if it is pulled off in the right way. One such retro craze that is back in vogue again is the corset.

The tradition of manufacturing and wearing corsets began in the mid-nineteenth century during the reign of Queen Victoria. Advertising campaigns in Britain and the USA further popularised the fad making it a part of the attire of different classes of women. This tight, restrictive item of clothing reflected on the societal expectations from women of that period as they were supposed to view life as strict, orthodox and rigid like the corset itself. The body-hugging lingerie style garment also served the ulterior purpose of reducing women's waist sizes, often to numbers that were harmful to their health.


The age-old trend made its way back into the fashion market when designer Vivienne Westwood reinvented the corset in the 1970s. She revisioned the conventional corsets by flattening them out and raising the bosom, thus adding an innovative touch of glamor and power. Today corsets are loved and adorned by celebs for their sex appeal and the way they compliment every body type. Further, the unique style flatters the waistline giving it a curvy and hourglass shape. Now let us look at some of the most famous corset dresses worn by women in the fashion world that left endless jaws dropping and countless cameras flashing.

She looked stunning in a revealing black gown featuring a sheer corset top. The semi-transparent corset accentuated her torso and bone structure making her look like real royalty. The black straps and black panels that covered her breasts added extra oomph to the outfit making her stand out in the crowd.

She didn't let down the expectations of her fans as she walked into the 2018 Met Gala, looking like a regal queen in her ornamented maroon corset gown by ‘Versace’. The shocking 600 days it took to put the whole thing together was worth it after all as the marvelous dress blended perfectly with that year's theme of 'Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’. The glittering gold and maroon jewel-encrusted corset top hugged her slender waist and added a push-up effect to her boobs making her look breathtakingly elegant. The gown with its Game of Thrones vibes turned out to be such a crowd pleaser because of the classy craftsmanship and the detailed and intricate beading. The massively long train of the dress with its sparkling panels and delicate embroidery and the handcrafted spiked headpiece made Blake look like a true angel sent from heaven. 



Kim Kardashian

Fashion diva Kim Kardashian looked lovely in a hot sheer white corset dress by the world famous Italian designer brand ‘Dolce and Gabbana’. The fashionista pulled off her signature sheer and sexy look at the Crystal Gardenia fragrance launch in 2017. She skipped jewelry and accessories to ensure that her outfit took center stage. She went braless with the tight corset enhancing her curvy figure making her look bold and beautiful. The translucent dress had a latex outlook which on close examination somewhat resembled a bridal gown. 



Alia Bhatt

Alia Bhatt is acclaimed nationwide for her excellent acting skills. Now the actress is making statements with her developed fashion adventures too. Alia sported a wonderful corset gown by Ralph and Russo to the Filmfare Awards 2018. The well designed translucent black corset bodice that highlighted her petite frame and the interesting details on it made onlookers’ heart skip a beat. The billowing train attached to the gown made her a true endorser of high fashion. The actress let her dress do all the talking with her minimalistic accessories.

She layered the corset over a trench coat style jacket and a thigh-high slit checked skirt. Who knew a corset belt could be worn over a coat inspired skirt/dress! She completed the look with eye-catching nude and snakeskin boots and her favorite oversized hoop earrings.

It’s not the hype surrounding a product that should decide whether you buy it or not. While they may be recommended by your favorite influencers and makeup artists, there’s a lot of marketing involved in why they have suddenly become the talk of the town. You might not be getting unbiased opinions, and your skin suffers if you chose a product that doesn’t work for your particular skin type. 

How, then, can you choose what to buy without wasting money or damaging your skin?

Read Reviews from People Like You
Reviews are not all bad; in fact, they may give you everything you need to know about a product, especially how it will react with your skin. But that’s if you find the right reviewers. This isn’t to say just look for a popular personality and take their word for it. Rather, look for genuine reviewers who have a similar skin type as you. It’s even better if they do their cosmetics online shopping from the same place you buy from, so you know the origin of the product will not be questioned. Bonus points if they’re in the same country as you, as this means you both will be dealing with the same weather conditions. 



Get Samples
Some online shops offer product samples. Take advantage of this. You can try a product without needing to purchase it for the full price. Even malls offer sample sizes from time to time, especially when a particular product is new and being promoted. With these opportunities, you can test the product firsthand but, because you didn’t buy them, you will not be disappointed if they don’t work well with your skin. 

Buy from Familiar Brands
If you’re skeptical about the hype surrounding a product and you want to guarantee the best results when you buy an item, go with familiar and trusted brands instead. Even in the Korean beauty market, there are brands that shine more than others for their cutting-edge technology. They earn their reputation from having products that have lived up to the hype. 




Those who don’t have a skincare routine consider makeup to be a waste of money. To prove them wrong, buy products that will not make you regret them.

Traveling is one of the best moments to release the boredom associated with a familiar environment and reconnect with your inner self. One area which brings a great challenge is what to carry while traveling. With airlines charging more on baggage and the challenges associated with dragging heavy bags along, it’s only wise that you pack light. But it's also nerve-wracking to find out that you forgot the fashion essentials and you have to spend extra dollars shopping for such items in the destination city.

It’s possible to balance all these packing needs and create a rocking outfit package for every traveling occasion.

Below are five ways to rock every outfit while traveling

1. Travel Light by Packing Clothes which have Coordinating Colors

One trick of keeping your outfits rocking while traveling is packing clothes which have coordinating colors. This is key in ensuring light packing and also helps you to quickly make color combinations which are in harmony during your trip. I would suggest that you select three coordinating colors and pack clothes which bear that theme. Long casual dresses tend to fit so well in this category. Go for those which are stretchy, are crisp-free, and which match with other apparel.


Having clothes which are matching will give you wide combination options, ensure that you are fully prepared for different occasions, and keep you rocking during the whole trip. Select the colors depending on where you are going, the nature of the visit, and the activities you plan to immerse yourself in once you are there.

2. Pack One Stunning and Flexible Outfit

One trick of dressing impressively and still ensuring that you pack light is choosing an outfit which is flexible for different occasions. For instance, if you expect to have a meet-up with friends during the trip, you can go for long casual dresses. This is better than packing a skirt, a blouse, and also a blazer to compliment the blouse. Going for the long casual dresses will mean that you have just picked one piece of clothing instead of 3 thus saving much on the packing space.



For men, a pair of multipurpose slacks, a flexible blazer, and a white shirt will do for a formal occasion during the trip. These pieces of clothing can be reused for other purposes such as taking a street walk or even going for trekking in the mountains. They are thus better off than one official wear which will only be used for the official meeting but is not flexible enough to be used for other trip activities.

3. Bring Some Accessories



Accessories serve to style the outfit and leave you looking quite stunning. They are also effective in defining your style and creating a certain uniqueness which makes you stand out. The good thing with most of the accessories is that they don’t occupy much packing space. This said, don’t over pack accessories.


I would suggest that you carry a maximum of 10. These could include a vintage watch, several pairs of earrings, a chain or a necklace and cocktail rings. Don’t forget your makeup. Include it in your traveling bag too. With a few tweaks and tricks, you can use these accessories to get a complete turnaround on your looks and enhance your outfits.

4. Mind your Workout Regime

In the past, it was rare to see people traveling in their workout gear. But the trend is slowly changing. It’s easy to spot travelers in the airport wearing their sporting clothes. Thus casual wear and sporting gear are slowly becoming fashionable especially for traveling occasions. You can choose to wear your sporting gear while traveling or pack it in your traveling bag. It will come handy when you want to exercise in your Metroflex gym tee.



Such clothing can also be useful during trekking or when taking long walks around the city. This flexibility should give you one more reason to include them in your packing list.

5. Mix the Shoes

Choose shoes which go well with different types of outfits. Have a mix of colorful shoes and also some solid color shoes but don’t overpack. For ladies, 3-5 pairs of flexible shoes can do while for men 2 to 4 pairs will be just enough. I would suggest that you have exercise sneakers, comfortable walking shoes, low boots and perhaps a pair of sandals for the evenings and also for seashore activities.


Conclusion

It’s possible to dress stunningly even when traveling. The key strategy to a stunning outfit is choosing clothes which match, creating a unique personal dressing concept and packing shoes which harmonize with the rest of the outfits. It’s also important to emphasize your looks by going for accessories which are classy, luxurious, and which best define you.

It’s a dreadful feeling to leave your twenties behind, the number “30” is a milestone age that gives you the perfect excuse for a great celebration and probably a new haircut. There are so many hairstyles that suit women in their thirties and plenty of options to choose from (lob, bob, short, pixie, wob, or long).

The key here remains the same, it’s just finding the right look for your face shape, hair type, and preferred style. So if you’re planning to change your look, then all you need is the right hairdresser and to read this guide so you can help your stylist with what look will flatter you the most. You don’t need to be an expert on hairdressing courses, because these are just the basic rules you need to follow. Take a look through this selection of beautiful hairstyles (we suggest that you try something new).

Yes To: Longer Cuts

Although women with longer faces should keep their hair shorter, the rest of us should feel absolutely free to wear longer hairstyles. While you still can, you may want to opt for longer, versatile cut in your 30s, straight, curly, up, down, because it will give you a more youthful vibe.



No To: Bold and Crazy Hair Colors

Yes, you are in the middle! You’re not a baby anymore yet you are not that mature either. Going red or candy pink might not help you to enhance your natural beauty. You may want to stick to a classier hair color found in nature (we are emphasizing on real and natural colors). It may sound like a good idea to go from black to platinum blonde in your 20s but not so much when you’re 30.

Yes To: Natural Hair Colors 

This is the right one. You can still try other hair colors but you want to pick something that looks natural and matches your skin tone. You can try deep blonde hair. As we get older, our skin can look tired. So it’s advisable that you pick a shade that will complement your skin, a color that will make you fresh and more awake. Going for extreme shades will just make your skin dull and tired.

No To: Mom Cut

Yes! Don’t ever try that “mom” cut! Most of you are probably mothers already but it doesn’t imply that you need to look like one. You still got plenty of time to go a little shorter sooner, but in your 30s, it’s better to look a hot mom. So avoid this.



No To: Librarian Buns 

Please, you don’t to be that serious in your 30s. Librarian buns is a style that’s hard to pull off. This trend may be easy for the 20s to follow, regardless if it’s flattering or not. But for the 30s, your age is all about trying to look your best all the time.

Trying this hairstyle will just make you look older! We can’t deny that those fine lines start to show up and it’s not a good idea to do this type of updo and put your wrinkles on display.



Yes To: Framing Updos 

Instead of those librarian buns, you might want to stick to framing updos. Messy buns are the trick to soften those fine less and more proper than those slicked-back buns. To do this style, use your finger instead of a brush to pull back your hair whenever you put it up. This will make it a bit messier (in a good way) and less harsh.

No To: Sleek Braids

Pulling off a braid or a fishtail in your 30s can be quite tricky. However, if you style them in a loose and messy manner, then you can definitely make them work. Just avoid the tight ones, this is just the same rule like the librarian buns.

Yes To: Fun Beachy Waves 

Beachy waves are a style that combines your carefree soul of your 20s with your newly-established pride in your 30s. This is perfect if you have great glowy skin and you are wearing loose waves, it will make you look younger and fresh. Plus, pulling off these sexy, tousled waves can be dressed easily.



No To: Damage Your Hair 

Aside from avoiding those crazy colors, you want to take care of your hair as much as you can. You don’t want to have fried ends and looking like a person who hasn’t visited a salon. Avoid ironing or blow drying your hair every day. But if you can’t, use a heat protectant spray or product to protect your hair or use deep conditioning treatments regularly.

Yes To: Healthy Shiny Hair 

This is the time that you want to look as young as possible. Having a shiny, healthy, and flowy hair is the best style ever. It doesn’t matter what your cut or style is, having a shiny hair is what you want to aim for.



Avoid too much coloring, heat styling, and shampooing too often. One tip is when you wash your hair, you must rinse off the conditioner with cool water to seal your hair cuticle.
