5 FUN Ways to Decorate Easter Eggs With Family This Year

Want something fun to do on Easter, but tired of the same exact thing year after year? Still enjoy this old tradition, but with new ideas this time! Below are some of our favorite ways to decorate eggs for Easter. Whichever one(s) that you decide to try, post them and tag us in your photo! We love seeing families have fun and enjoy each other’s company!

 

Freckled Egg

This one is adorable, right?? All you do is take a tan or neutral colored acrylic paint, a small paint brush, and sling the paint at the unpainted egg! (Looking for something less messy? Try using a toothpick and make some “freckles” bigger/smaller)

 

Paper Napkin Eggs

This one is one of our favorites because it is just so easy!! To get these gorgeous looking eggs all you do is take a floral print paper napkin, cut out the flowers and shapes, and mod podge them to the egg! Yeah, that’s really it!

 

Temporary Tattoo Egg

If you thought it couldn’t get any easier than the previous egg, think again! With this one, all you have to do is get a temporary tattoo and follow the instructions on application, and you’re done!! The kids will love this one.

 

Confetti Eggs

This one is definitely right up our alley. If you can add gold, why not go for it?? Add mod podge to the area you want confettied and just dip it!

 

Sharpie Eggs

You only need two supplies for this one- an egg and a sharpie! Let your creativity come out in this fun way to decorate your eggs! You can also have fun with it and use a bright color sharpie or multiple colors!

 

We hope this post will give you great ideas for decorating your Easter eggs with family this year, and even enjoy it grown-up style. Can’t wait to see your photos!

 

Oh, and don’t forget the meaning of Easter. We celebrate this holiday of life and true love. Enjoy it with the people who are special to you!

Happy Easter! -Queen C

5 Ponytail Styles You Won't Get Tired of This Spring

Spring is coming! That means warmer weather and…PONYTAIL season! Who can say they DON’T wear a ponytail here and there? Yeah, us either. We know the same ponytail or bun day in and day out can get old and frumpy, so we are going to show you some easy, chic styles that won’t take any extra time out of your morning!

THE HALF-PONY

This One 5

This one is great if you have “leftover hair” from yesterday! Don’t want to wear it all down? Put half of it up, and pump that hair up big, girlfriend. Here, we did use the Queen C Clip & Tie Ponytail to get this look, but if your hair is already long and luxurious, then all you need is a comb for teasing and your elastic hair band!

THE BUN

This One 2

Okay.. this one may be TOO easy if there even is such a thing. All we did was roll the ponytail under starting at the end all the way up to the base and secure it! We love using Frenchies to secure our styles like this! *Especially if you have thick hair or extensions like us!*

THE BRAID

This One 3

Looking for something more relaxed? This one is perfect! All we did was do a simple braid on the side we part our hair (since there is definitely more hair to work with that way!), and pull the rest up in a pony. Then, we fluffed the ponytail some with our brush to give it a more relaxed, not so put-together look!

THE BUMP

This One

This one is a classic. A chic pony with some flare.. All we had to do was achieve this look was tease our crown, bobby pin it to stay, then pull the rest up in a pony! (The secret to the bump is pinning it to stay in place before you pull the rest up)

THE FISHTAIL

This one 4

Want something with even more detail? This one is for you! Remember earlier when we did the braid and then the ponytail? (Style #3) Once you get to that, just take the ponytail and fishtail it from base to ends! You can do a fishtail braid here or a regular 3-strand braid if you aren’t comfortable with a fishtail! You can even do this style without the bang braid, but the more braids the merrier, right?
These 5 fun styles only put a dent in all the styles there are out there for a ponytail. Don’t limit your hair to something boring! Try something new with the new season!
*To achieve each look, we used the 100% Human Hair Queen C Clip & Tie Ponytail in Mocha Dark Brown.  You can also achieve these looks with your own hair or the AIRess Ponytail extension.

Are you Good with You? – From the Heart of a Queen

 

 

Do you ever truly stop and evaluate your life? Not monetarily, but how you live day by day.

Not by Facebook or Instagram standards either. That’s the complete world of fakeness!

What is the inner you? If there were no social media would you be ok with yourself?! How you treat people, do you do things just to make a “post”. Do you think the world is truly that interested in you? I have had to ask myself these questions also. If we really knew how little people think about us once they scroll past that picture that took us 20 shots and 10 filters to get, we may not waste so much time doing it.

I just want to be the best ME I can be without comparing myself to others or trying to live up to the wonderful world of photoshop (not that there is anything wrong with that 😂) and superficial people that are only there when you are doing something for them.

This is not a blog aimed at anyone. I don’t really even know why I created this article. I was deleting pictures off my phone and was thinking how most of them don’t even portray the true me. And that was sad! Of course, I want to look my best, I love my makeup to be on point and my hair to be perfection, just like most girls. And being in the beauty industry for over 27 years definitely has its pressures. But where are the silly pictures without filters, the nature pictures, because I love that kind of stuff. I don’t think it’s wrong to take those serious, “sexy” pictures, there just needs to be a BALANCE.  My own pictures showed me I had lost that.

I know I’m not the only person that has struggled with my self image, which is why I feel we do some of these things.  With talking one on one with so many people over the years, you realize everyone struggles with something different but equally important. (And yes, one day there will be a book SERIES on all of the “therapy” sessions.  Names changed of course, to protect the “innocent”. lol).

I guess my challenge to you is, pause in life and analyze yourself.  Are you doing things for yourself or for what you think other people want you to do or be? When you do something for someone, are you doing it to get something in return, for recognition or just because…? One thing I learned early in life, when you do something for someone, you don’t have to tell every one else of your good “deed”.  Do it, move on, never hold it over someone’s head, and don’t tell other people.  (I could write a complete book on this alone lol)

So are you good with you? Are you happy with who you truly are, do you even know who you really are? If not, maybe it’s time to figure it out. Without comparing yourself to any one. Just figure out YOU!

We are all uniquely and wonderfully made. Celebrate YOU, do things just because it’s the right thing to do, ENJOY moments, make memories, become the absolute best version of YOU!

2018 IS the Year for Confidence

 

con·fi·dence: 

a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.

 

Confidence is in every one of us.  We all have the ability to bring it to it’s full potential.  With it being a New Year, it is time to be your best you.

 

 

You always hear people say, “confidence is key!”.  Sure, everyone knows that and uses the phrase whether they mean it or not.  Confidence can be a difficult thing to come by though (especially after the few extra holiday pounds, am I right??), and every single person that walks this earth struggles with it in some degree.  The good news?  There are so many ways to boost your confidence from positive thinking to even things that make you feel beautiful on the outside, too.

 

We asked forty women of all different personalities what makes them feel confident, and here were the results:

 

4 out of 40 said killer shoes and a great outfit

2 out of 40 said believing in a higher power

15 out of 40 said hair

2 out of 40 said family and friends

5 out of 40 said makeup

5 out of 40 said being tan

5 out of 40 said health

2 out of 40 said knowledge

 

Can’t you agree that for example, getting your hair done or having your favorite outfit on can make you feel confident?  Studies even show that when you feel more confident, you look more confident.  So put that outfit on and tackle your day with a little extra pep in your step!

 

Ways to boost your confidence:

 

1. Fake it till you make it

2. Make eye contact. When you are speaking to someone, look them in the eyes.  Eye contact is important for coming across as confident.  It helps you make connections, appear trustworthy, and seem more decisive.

3. Speak clearly and slowly.  Take your time with each sentence and make sure you enunciate your words clearly.  Talking slowly allows you more time to think about and choose your next words more carefully.  Talking slower is shown to engage your listeners more so than fast talking.

4. This one comes in handy… Keeping your hands together when you are listening to someone talk avoids fidgeting.  When talking to someone, use hand gestures to emphasize your words to be perceived as confident by your listeners.

 

5. Smile.  Smiling when you are feeling low on confidence is shown to improve your mood.  It will make others around you smile, too!

6. Walk with drive and purpose.  Walk like you have somewhere important to be.

7. Clear the clutter.  A messy room or work space means a messy mind.

8. When you look good, you feel good.   Do your makeup, put in your Queen C Hair Extensions, and put on your favorite outfit.  We guarantee you will instantly feel like a million bucks!

 

9. At the end of the day, everyday, write down something you think you did well.  You will feel accomplished.

 

10. Work it out!  When you feel healthy, you will feel more confident- not just on the outside, but you will be proud of yourself for being the best you.

11. Next time you are at any type of social event, like a party, introduce yourself to someone and make a new friend.

12. Stop comparing yourself to others.  Focusing on your positive qualities rather than comparing yourself to someone one else is going to do wonders for your self-confidence.

13. Say thank you!  When someone compliments you, they are not trying to make you feel bad or embarrassed.  They truly mean it, so accept the compliment instead of turning it down or denying it.

14. Accomplish something.  Give yourself a challenge-something you can realistically expect to achieve- and then do it!  It could be a task you have been putting off like cleaning out your closet or junk drawer, or a whole new fun challenge like taking a cooking class or exercise class.

15. Do the right thing.  When you are forced with a decision, always take the action that lifts you or someone else up.  Go for a walk, or take the time to call a loved one.  When you do the right thing, you feel better about yourself and end up feeling more confident.

 

Write these quotes down and take them with you wherever you go, and when you are doubting yourself, remind yourself that you are perfect the way you are!

 

“I can’t think of a better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself” – Emma Stone

 

“She remembered who she was, and the game changed” – Lalah Deilah

 

“Just be yourself.  Let people see the real, imperfect, flawed, quirky, weird, beautiful, magical person that you are” – Mandy Hale

 

“When you do not seek or need approval, you are the most powerful” – Unknown

 

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.  You are able to say to yourself, I lived through this horror.  I can take the next thing that comes along.  You must do the thing you think you can not do.” – Elanor Roosevelt

 

What does confidence mean to you?
This will be your best year yet, and we can’t wait to enjoy it with you!

 

 

 

What can Queen “C” mean to you?… CONFIDENCE (a feeling of self assurance), CAPTIVATING (attract attention like never before), COLOR (when you don’t want to use chemicals on your hair but want a new look or added “pop”), CHARM (turning on the magic), CLASSY (high class elegance), CHIC (stylish, fashionable), or simply CHANGE (New “Do”, New You).

Holiday Hair Tips

During the Holidays we get so busy that at times we tend to neglect ourselves.  And that is especially true when it comes to our hair.  And our hair is what people see first!

Read below for tips that will not only save you time, but also help you achieve glamorous hair all year and especially through the holidays.

Dull Hair? 

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!  Not only is this excellent for your body, it is just as necessary for your hair!  Water hydrates the body and helps to regulate the circulatory system, which feeds the hair follicle, which then stimulates hair growth. If your hair roots are deficient in adequate water levels your tresses will eventually become dry, brittle and may stop growing.  Hair that is strong and well-nourished is sure to shine, even when the weather outside is cold.

Staticky hair?  

Winter is the worst time of year for this.  Between the dry heat and all of the styling for those special occasions our hair suffers.  Use a deep-conditioning treatment once a week to keep hair moisturized,” says Cheryl Whitt, Stylist and Founder of Queen C Hair Extensions.  Also, use a silicone product to reduce flyaways and static in dry hair.  For a “at home remedy”,  run a dryer sheet down your hair.


Are you Doing Proper Hair Maintenance?

Book an appointment to have your hair trimmed.  Split Ends “travel” up the hair causing more damage and dullness.  On average, hair grows at a rate of about one-half inch per month, and typically the hair should be trimmed every 8 weeks.  Regular haircuts do not make your hair actually grow faster. Rather, regular trims prevent your hair from suffering breakage and split ends that make your hair appear to grow slower.


 

What Are You Sleeping On?

If not a Silk or Sateen Pillowcase you are more than likely causing hair breakage.  Not only that, cotton can pull moisture out of your skin and cause dryness.  Talk about getting your beauty rest!   Make every hour of dozing off beneficial to your hair.  Damage can be caused  to the hair being roughed up and tangled while you move around in your sleep. A silk or sateen pillowcase will help give a more slippery surface for the hair and will avoid excess friction.

It’s the holidays – why not add a little bit of sparkle?  Whether your hairstyle of choice is a braided bun or a sleek high ponytail,  give it some extra glamour with a cosmetic glitter spray as the finishing touch to make both your beauty look and your hairstyle truly sparkle in the Christmas lights.

  • NEVER drink and drive. It is just not worth it. Even if you live, you might kill someone, and you’ll have to live with that for the rest of your life. Pick a designated driver, use a taxi or public transportation, or just check in to a hotel and sleep it off. Do not get behind the wheel.

Bad Habits and What They Can Do to Your Hair

Bad Habits and What They Can Do to Your Hair

 

We all have bad habits. Whether you aren’t getting enough sleep or you are skipping breakfast in the mornings, bad habits no matter how big or small can take a toll on your hair that you probably didn’t even know about. Here are some examples of bad habits and how damaging they can really be to your hair:

 

1. Smoking and Excessive Drinking

Fitness for the Masses explains this one perfectly. They talk about what the damaging effects of inhaling carbon monoxide are from smoking and how excessive alcohol consumption lowers the iron in our bodies which is a key nutrient that our hair needs. Click here to read more about how smoking and excessive drinking can be two of the worst habits for your hair. 1

 

2. Not Getting Enough Sleep


Getting a good eight hours of sleep every night is essential if we want to stay healthy. Lack of sleep can cause thinning hair. Sleeping is the time of the day that the body restores itself. When your body isn’t getting all of the repair and rest that it needs, your hair can get some of the pretty nasty effects from it like leaving it dry, brittle, and lacking luster. It can cause your hair to grow more slowly and even lead to some hair loss. 2

 

3. Skipping Breakfast


We all know that skipping breakfast is bad for your overall health. That is can affect your metabolism, cause migraines, and even increase your risk of cancer, but did you know that it can also trigger hair loss? Not getting enough protein at the most important meal of the day can affect the levels of keratin in your hair, keeping hair growth to a minimum as well as triggering the loss of some of your hair. Want to keep your hair thick and lush? Make sure you get in that most important meal of the day! 3

 

4. Not Drinking Enough Water


What is too often overlooked is the effect of dehydration and your hair. Each hair is made up of 1/4 water, and when you’re not getting enough water, it causes your hair to become weak. Plus, water flushes out toxins in your body which could also be a major contributor to hair loss. The more water you drink, the more your health will simply improve from one end of the spectrum to the other! 4

 

5. Spending Too Much Time Indoors


Being inside anywhere too long is going to affect not only your physical and mental health, but your hair as well. Spending too much time indoors can increase your stress levels, your blood pressure, and your heart rate, which in turn, all of those things can stunt the growth of your hair and cause hair loss. 5

 

6. Taking Too Much Medicine


Do you pop a pill every time you get a headache, menstrual cramp, when you can’t sleep, etc? All that medicine is wreaking havoc on your hair! Many medications not only limit your hair growth, they can cause hair loss an catastrophes on chemical services at the hair salon. Limit your intake of medicines you don’t really need, and save your hair! 6

 

 

Try and be aware every day to improve these habits for not only your hair, but your overall health, as that is most important!

 

Always seek doctor’s advice before taking or stopping any vitamins or medications. Feel good, enjoy your life, and soak in some sunshine. Stay beautiful and healthy!!
