Deepa-Berar-How-to-Fill-in-Bald-Spots-with-Toppik

 

Back with another hair post for ya guys! This one is all about how to fill in bald spots and thinning hair. When I first got the Alopecia I was searching for everything and anything that I could do to stop it and regrow my hair. When I finally accepted what was going on with me, I started trying to figure out what I could do if it never grew back.

 

Enter Toppik. Even though my hair is growing back and almost fully now, I still have one very visible bald patch right along my hairline and thinner spots in some areas. So I’ve been trying everything under the sun to fill in spots that a) looks natural and b) is easy to use.

 

How to fill in bald spots with Toppik Hair Fibers

 

Toppik’s hair fibers look almost like real hair! They come with a sifter that you can use to fill in spots, or you can get the Hair perfecting kit (which I highly recommend) comes with a pump and optimizer that allows you to be very precise with your placement. You all know how much of a perfectionist I am, so trust me when I say the kit is vital.

 

Toppik Hair Fibers

 

The colored hair thickener is amazing for bald patches. You want to color the scalp and then add the fibers to make it look as natural as possible. I do a step by step in the video below on how I get it to look natural (esp if your bald patch is right by your face like mine).

 

***Toppik Canada is offering 10% off most products until Oct 15th to all of you guys!! Just head to toppikcanada.ca and enter Promo code “ToppikTen” and shop away!***

 

So anyways, I really wanted to find a solution to share with you guys since I get tons of messages from you on what you can do with your own hair. Hope this helps!

 

Here’s the vid!

 

 

Question- Have you guys tried Toppik? What do you think?

Goody Amp it Up Hair Kit

Guys! I have a really, really fun video for you all today! Not only is it a super easy to recreate wedding hair tutorial, but it features one of my best friends, Jaclyn Colville.

 

Jaclyn Colville Puppy

 

You might remember Jackie from our Bella Trois days. She’s honestly such a sweetheart, one of the nicest people I have ever met. We had a total blast recording this as we were doing a little photoshoot at her place before hand. Ok a major photoshoot to freshen up our blogs, so watch out for that soon! The pics are amazing. My fav part was shooting her and her dog Petie. He is beyond adorable. I want (are you paying attention Derek?!).

 

Goody Amp it Up Brush

 

Back to the wedding hair! Goody just released a new brush collection, Amp It Up, which is perfect for your full, voluminous hairstyles. Whenever you style your hair in any sort of updo or whatever look you are creating that requires volume, it’s always a good idea to blow dry it first with a round brush. Even if it’s already dry, it just adds a polished look to the hair and a little extra lift.

 

Goody Brush and Comb Set

 

Guys you know how much of a fan I am of the Goody Simple Styles hair kits, they are the easiest things to use in the world, my fav has to be the Spin Pins kit. Two pin you corkscrew into your hair and it holds your bun in place. Genius.

Sonam Kapoor is one lucky girl. Not only did she get to grow up as the daughter of famous actor Anil Kapoor, but she is the first actress to star in a Bollywood Disney film. I couldn’t think of a better person for the role!

 

Sonam in real life has turned herself into quite a style icon. From her fashion, to her hair & makeup, everything she does is immaculate. Her hair in the film Khoobsurat is perfect and a great go to look.

How to Dye your Hair Ombre

Monday, August 18, 2014 2 1

A lot of you have been asking about where I get my hair color done and what I ask for, well, I’ll let you in on a little secret- I do it myself.

 

deepa berar red hair ombre

 

I’ve been dyeing my own hair since I was 17 and would put henna in my hair. Over the years I would go to stylists for the more complicated highlights, but recently I started doing my own ombre color after watching other artists and learning from my own hair stylist Anna Barseghian who works at Brennen DeMelo studio in Toronto. Anna is a celeb hairstylist and amazing at what she does!!

 

Anyways back to how I do it, I was in need of a touch up and wanted to go back to my red so I picked up a couple of boxes of L’oreal’s HiColor Highlights in Magenta and decided to record a video for you on how to dye your hair ombre.

 

l-oreal-hicolor-highlights-magenta

 

Keep in mind this particular hair color is developed for dark hair, and you don’t have to dye your hair red to learn from this video- I’m mostly showing you the technique (balayage) I used.

 

 

 

 

If you have any friends who have been wanting to go ombre, please share this video with them! Or if you decide to try it yourself, send me pics on my Facebook page or tag me on Instagram.

How to get Big sexy waves in 5 minutes!

Friday, April 25, 2014 2 0

Yes you read it right, this week’s tutorial is on hair! I have been waving my hair with a wand for a while now, I love how quick & easy it is to do. I had a conversation with my bestie the other day and she mentioned how happy she is that I forced her to buy a wand (lol what are best friends for!) & taught her how to do 5 minute waves. It really takes no time at all once you get the hang of it.

Plus if you already have naturally wavy/curly hair, all you need to do is touch up random pieces here & there, you wouldn’t even need to do your whole head. I added some bonus tips for when you have a little extra time to get ready ;)

Happy weekend ladies! Oh and don’t forget to visit back tomorrow, I’ll be announcing our contest winner ;)
