Along with every New Year comes new collections from all your favorite stores! Last year was all about a throwback the 70s, but now you are going to notice a fast forward into the future…of the 90s that is! Feminine florals, minimalist sets, grunge and fanny packs are all making appearances for 2016, so get ready for a blast from the past. We are spotlighting our favorite new collections from H&M to offer a bit of style inspiration for your next shopping trip.


Whether you have 15 minutes for a touch-up, 45 minutes for a makeover, or 90 minutes for a customized consultation, the Beauty Advisors at Sephora are ready to help! Treat yourself to the ultimate experience—a dedicated session with their expert team. Start the new year with a stunning new look and stop by Sephora to try out all these fun makeover services they offer.

Premium Services

If you’re going to an event or out with your friends for the night, stopping by Sephora for a CMA or Customized Makeup Application is a great idea. With a $50 purchase (which is pretty easy to do!) you can get your entire face made up from skincare to foundation even all the way down to the setting spray at the end. You’ll learn a ton of application techniques and things especially for your face/eye shape. Be sure to call ahead of time and make an appointment because you’ll be working with someone certified in CMAs.

Mini Makovers

A lot of people don’t even know that this service exists but Sephora offers free 15-minute “mini makeovers”. A mini makeover focuses on one area such as a smokey eye, eyeliner, foundation, etc. You won’t get a free full-face makeover but you do get one part of your face made over for free. This is also a great time to learn new techniques and how to use different products.

Skincare IQ

If you’ve ever been looking for a foundation at your local Sephora you’ve probably been asked if you wanted to be “Color IQ-ed”. Sephora teamed up with Pantone and created an incredible little machine (which is essentially a camera) that takes three photos of your skin, averages the three photos together and gives your perfect match product!.


In 2015, the shaggy, textured, lob dominated. Pink hair asserted itself on the heads of both celebs and civilians. “Bronde” had another big moment in the spotlight — and a gorgeous one at that. So what about the great, wide unknown that is 2016? What hair trend will dominate 2016? Here’s a list of all the gorgeous looks that are forecasted to dominate this year:

1. The Bob

The bob will be the biggest trend this year! The cut’s malleability is the reason it never really goes out of style. With this classic cut, you can enjoy the versatility of your texture by wearing it tightly coiled, wavy, or bone straight.

2. All-Natural

I always fake waves by washing my hair, braiding it while wet, sleeping in it, and shaking it out in the morning. That type of texture is going to be big in 2016! Who isn’t in love with the beautiful textures that we get when we’ve slept in our braids, then unravel them in the morning, especially those with finer hair? It looks effortless and stunning.

3. Victoria’s Secret Waves

Texture will also be big in 2016. In general, people have really been liking the consistent texture and beach wave style, just like the ‘Victoria Secret Wave’ that everyone loves. The style is universally flattering on all face shapes and is guaranteed to make you feel absolutely gorgeous! You can master this look at home with a 1.5 inch hot curler and focus on curling away from the face.

4. The “Wob”

Although this year will be all about individuality when it comes to hair, the dominant hair trend you will see in 2016 is the ‘wob’ or wavy bob. The wob, which is a wavy, chin or shoulder sweeping look, enhances tousled tresses with effortless romantic curls, easily heating up the day or night — and celebrity stylists are loving it for being youthful and easy to style.

Teeth whitening

We all want gleaming, Julia Roberts-esque pearly whites, but let’s face it: Sometimes we want stain-inducing coffee, soda, and red wine more. To whiten teeh in a flash, Maui Whitening offers multiple services to get your pearl whites looking gorgeous. Their system produces fast, safe, effective whitening in as little as 20-60 minutes. Each “session” lasts 20 minutes. Most individuals choose 2-3 (20 minute) sessions to get their teeth their very whitest. You can get the smile you’ve always wanted in as little as 20-60 minutes depending on your shade of teeth and the level of brightness you want to achieve.
