Loy Krathong festival is called the “most romantic” holiday in Thailand; a chance to celebrate love with your other half. Prepare yourself in the best way to make this night memorable with you beloved one.
I’m suggesting you, to pamper yourself or with your friends, some of you might opt for an appointment to the hairdresser, or the nail salon. For others you will start the morning cocooning at home and prepare this homemade hair mask to apply on your hair….
HOMEMADE HAIR MASK
Remember, you can have the perfect outfit and beautiful makeup, but if your hair doesn’t look right it can throw the entire look. Getting a hair treatment at a salon can be pricey, follow our tips below and see how you can create a hair mask at home designed perfectly for your hair issue!
Creating a mask at home isn’t as difficult as it sounds. Most of the ingredients are things lying around your kitchen anyway and you’ll be saving money too. These five DIY hair mask ideas are simple to make and will take no more than 30 minutes of your time:
**A Mask to Fight Frizz!
What you’ll need:
1/2 cup of yogurt
1/2 cup of honey
1 tbsp of almond oil
Mix the three ingredients together and apply all over your hair. Leave it in for 20 minutes and then rinse off with a shampoo. Your frizz will be under control if you do this at least once a month.
A Mask to Repair!
What you’ll need:
2 tbsp of honey
3 tbsp of virgin olive oil
3 tbsp of butter
Mash the banana, egg and avocado together. Once you have a smooth mixture, stir in the butter, honey and olive oil. Apply it all over your hair and let it sit for 20 minutes before rinsing. You will be left with revived, healthy-looking hair.
A Mask to Shine it up!
What you’ll need:
3 tbsp of olive oil
1/2 cup of coconut milk
Mash up the avocado until it’s smooth then add the coconut milk and olive oil. Once everything is mixed together heat it up in the microwave for 20 seconds. Apply all over your hair and after 30 minutes wash it out.
A Mask to Fight Oily Hair!
What you’ll need:
5 tbsp of plain yogurt
1 tbsp of baking soda
1 tbsp of lemon juice
Mix the three ingredients together and rub all over your hair focusing on the roots. After 30 minutes rinse off. If your hair is extra oily try doing this mask once a week.
While your mask is left on your hair, you can start taking care of your make-up….And The must have in your make-up drawer is The Tangerine lipstick….
Embrace this festival of lights with “Orange/Tangerine” on your lips. Without a winter season in Thailand, let’s extend this summer beauty trend. Whether it’s on your lips, nails, eyes, or cheeks, this vibrant look will be rockin’ under the lanterns’ light. An easy way to wear this trend is to match it with a basic neutral beige eye-shadow with just some black eyeliner – this will allow a focus on your bold lips.
A lot of you are afraid of rockin’ red lips, so go for Orange!! With a great variety of shades, we are sure you will find the perfect one to flatter any skin tones.
Here are a few of our tips to keep in mind when you choose your colour tone:
1. Consider Your Skin Tone
True orange shades look great on blondes and women with caramel-colored skin or darker, but medium and olive skin tones should opt for corals and reddish oranges.
2. Keep It Simple
When sporting a melon mouth it’s best to keep the rest of your look subtle. Avoid colourful shadows and opt for natural lips or a simple swipe of your favorite mascara.
3. Go Matte
Get the bold impact by opting for a matte lip look.

A LITTLE BLACK DRESS
Since Coco Chanel introduced it in 1926, the little black dress has become the piece of timeless fashion. It is the answer to “What should I wear tonight?, I have nothing to wear!!!” The little black dress has even represents an ideal of a perfectly simple, but yet sexy and sophisticated. Through the years, the little black dress has undergone hemline, shoulder, strap and fabric variations and this season is no different.
Little Black Dress Facts: Always in style: a knee-ish length (right above, at or below) sleeveless. Don’t hesitate to pick one with the back with lace details or fishnet mesh cut out.

SMALL BRAIDS AROUND THE HEAD
Once the treatment is done and washed-off, dry your hair and follow our easy hairstyle by choosing small braids, and position them on the back, front, side, centre: it doesn’t matter. For a date night-out; braid your way with neatly plaits, from each side of your head. This is an easy and great way to spice up your hair. It works perfectly with either straight hair, curly, long hair or short (about shoulders length).
What You Will Need
Tiny rubber bands transparent or matching your hair colour.
Step 1. Draw a line with your finger upwards right above your ear and split your hair in half. Take a chunk of hair in a circle about as thick as you want your braid to be from just behind your ear and braid it up!
Step 2. Pull the braid over to the other side of your head and secure right above your ear with a bobby pin or two. Repeat the process in step 1 on the other side of your head.
Tease your hair a bit on the high of your head for more volume if you like, straighten a little, or finish off with a few freshly curled locks, if you leave them down, or even finished it up with a low bun with the rest of your hair.
You’re good to go!!
