Minimalist Salon is a Trend in Japan

When most American salon try to keep their boutique glamorous and equipped, salons in Japan are going for the opposite. The idea to keep things pure, simple and clean. Most of the salon interiors I've seen so from Japan are bright and minimalist. Lots of whites, natural wood and cement.

@Animaniafreak I stopped trimming my bangs for a while now, but I recall those annoying cutoffs. lol but your hairstylist sound chill! :D
@Animaniafreak LOL. I actually keep my eyes wide open to see how they the stylist cuts my hair.
As long as they provide good haircut and nice head massage, I don't mind how the interior design looks, my eyes are mostly shut anyway.
@HairConfetti but the cutoff hair always find its way into my eyes, I tried to peep through squinting and my stylist joked "I see what you r doing, no peeping!" Lol

A Blissful Place for Manga Lovers!
For the longest time I only have one reason for visiting Japan. Nope, it's not for food. Nope, it's not for fashion. Yes. It's for hot spring! I may look an average 20 something gal but I'm a grandma at heart. I've been told that many times because of my peculiar lifestyle. I love jacuzzi and hot spring is one of the thing I've always wanted to try after watching dramas that features this fabulous chamber. Even though I really wanted to visit Japan I didn't think hot spring would justify the trip because Taiwan also have hot spring. The ticket and accommodation in Taiwan is more budget-friendly than Japan. It was not until today I found another reason to go visit Japan. Books & Bed This concept is really intriguing. Though, I don't openly express it, I'm a manga girl at heart. Throw me in a room with a bunch of manga and I will be more than happy to read them. This is place is truly a gem for book lovers and someone who appreciates minimal architect. At Book and Bed Hostel you get a beautiful view of the city at night and get unlimited access to book in their library until your eyes become drowsy. The industrial interior design is filled with cement walls, wooden bookshelves and wooden single beds. Obviously, it's not a place for you to get a comfy pillow and cozy bed. If you are solo or duo traveler, this is the type of place that will bring you a blissful evening. What more do you want from a short vacation getaway than a place to sleep and get inspired? Anyone else feel the same way?
Lazy Day Hammock Chair - DIY
There is nothing like sitting around on a lazy day doing nothing--in a cozy hammock chair! I love this idea from A Beautiful Mess which shows how to make this thing in one lazy afternoon. Supplies Needed: -1 1/4" x 3' oak dowel (oak is a hard wood and considered safer than poplar for supporting weight. Also, I had mine cut to 3') -3/8" x 16' braided polypropylene (get this by the foot) -2 yards of plain canvas -80mm stainless steel spring snap link (holds up to 220 lbs) -3/16" stainless steel quick link (holds up to 660 lbs) -black fabric paint (my acrylic paint is fabric friendly) -paint brush Tools: -drill and 3/8" drill bit -sewing machine -iron and ironing board -shears -ruler -lighter Step One: Fold your two yards of canvas in half and lay flat with the fold on the left as shown. Measure in about 7" from the top right edge and mark. I cut mine about 12" in, and it was a bit too much, so I'm suggesting 7". Using a yard stick or ruler, draw a line from that top mark to the bottom right corner, and cut through both pieces. Open your canvas. Step Two: Fold your top edge down 1/2" and iron flat. Then fold it in again 1/2" and iron flat. Pin and stitch the bottom of the fold as shown above. Repeat with the long bottom edge. Step Three: Flip your canvas 90 degrees to the left so that the longest edge is on the right. You're going to create pockets for the rope to slide through on each side. Fold each corner in about 1 1/2" and iron flat. Then fold the unhemmed top edge in 1/2" and iron flat. Step Four: Fold again 1 1/2" and iron flat. Step Five: Stitch two lines along the bottom folded edge as shown. Reinforce your beginning and ending with back stitches. Repeat with other side. Step Six: Make a mark 2" and 4" in from both ends of your dowel, and drill through. Sand your rough edges and stain if you'd like. I chose to leave mine natural. Step Seven: Place your canvas on a large sheet of cardboard, and paint your design on one side. Let it dry, and then paint a design on the other side (optional). If you're using printed fabric, be sure it's upholstery weight or outdoor fabric to ensure its strength. Step Eight: Tie a knot at one end of your 16' rope so that there is about 3" of a tail. Melt the end so it won't fray. Thread it down through the outer hole of your oak dowel and up from the widest corner of one side of your canvas seat to the narrow corner of the top. Then tie a knot about 3' from your first knot, and thread it up into the oak dowel. Continue to thread it down into the hole 4" from the other edge, and measure 3' from the loose end, and tie a loose knot. Thread it down through the other canvas pocket and back up through the last hole before tying a knot with a 3" tail. If your two sides aren't even, adjust your knots before pulling them tight. Step Nine: Find the center of the rope above your dowel, and tie a knot with about 8"-10" of room above it. Attach your spring link, and then your quick link, and finally hang it on a hook screwed safely into a ceiling beam or large tree branch. Be sure to adjust all of your knots to make sure the seat sits evenly. Test it out by hanging on it before sitting in it to make sure everything is secure.

7 Ideas to Upgrade Your Hair
Two times in a year I would switch up my hairstyle, at the end of December and mid-June. December is understandable. New year, new hair! If you think about it 12 months is a really long time. June is the perfect month to get a brief makeover to freshen up for the rest of the year. Whenever you're ready, here are some cool ideas to switch up your hair. 1. Wig Not sure if you notice but in recent years wigs is rising in popularity. Part of the reason is Kylie Jenner has made wig a thing. In addition, Ladies don't want to damage their hair by changing their hair color every other month. Therefore, wig is a cheaper and safer option to look fab, minus all the mess. 2. Extensions Wigs can be bulky and some people just hate wearing a helmet of hair over their own hair. Hair extensions is another solution to obtain new color without the use of dyes. The great thing about extension is you have full control of placement and style. The option is endless, so be creative! 3. Temporary Hair Color This option is for those of you who don't like having anything on your hair. There are products like temporary hair color rinses, chalk hair, eye shadow hair that will go away in one wash. No commitment but it does take some work. 4. Traditional Color Change You can always rely on the good old method of coloring your hair. Box formula can give you instant results without having to book an appointment or spend a lot of cash. However, professional color service will give you gorgeous and more long-lasting results. Highlights such as ombre and sombre are styles you might want to opt for this summer. 5. Smart Haircut If you want to get your hair short but don't want to go all in, take baby steps. It's okay to have an evolving haircut. Start getting a few inches and then go shorter until your desired final cut. Experiment and see what works for you! 6. Texture Change Long hair can be annoying during summer and you might be considering to trim it. However, if you want to keep the length but is bored with your current hair you can try changing the texture. It's easy to give your hair new looks. Simply use heating tools, braids, or twists. The best part, it works on any hair length. 7. Bangs This is a subtle yet big change to any hair. One little trim can alter your entire style. You don't have to commit to it right away. You can always test it out with faux bang clip-in.
Save Your Hair From Color Damage
I was looking through pictures of girl groups hairstyles within a year their hair could change up to 4-5 times. Regular people like myself will probably get their hair done 1-2 times a year. I guess one reason to explain the short lifespan of their hairstyles is kpop fans expect the idols to look different for new comeback and concept. So, before dropping any announcement, Hairstyle is usually one of the biggest hint for comebacks. Truth is their hair must be extremely damage from the excessive use of chemical and heat styling. However, they are celebrities and they must have hair professionals to maintain the health of their hair. Otherwise, we'll be staring at limpy hair, and split ends on stage. Celebrity Hair Secrets: 1. Protein mask. This is normally used to strengthen the hair before styling. 2. Hair serum and oil. A dollop of this will quickly give your hair shine and moisture. 3. Supplements. No matter how many products you use you need to get enough nutrients to maintain over health and beauty. For those of you who color your hair or use heat styling tool often these are the products that can help keep your hair healthy. Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Best for dry and damaged hair. Coconut oil is packed with moisturizing benefits. if your strands are extremely dry you can leave this on overnight then wash your hair in the morning to get glossy, healthy hair.
