As are all berries, blackberries are a great source of ellagic acid, an antioxidant shown to protect the skin from damage from ultraviolet light. Studies have also shown that ellagic acid may also repair skin damaged by the sun. Vitamin C helps heal wounds, and studies also show vitamin C may even lessen the appearance of wrinkles. Studies of cyanidin-3-glucoside, a compound found in blackberries showed it prevents skin cancer by inhibiting tumors from growing and spreading.

It’s almost time to celebrate the beginning of 2014 and what ever shall we wear?! Thanks to my friends at CLR-MNSTR boutique and art space we were able to put together a few different looks for your New Years Eve parties!
“Lady in Red”
This red mini dress is perfect for a party at your favorite bar or even a house party. I loved the statement necklace as well. With this look I felt like the hair should be simple and laid back.
For Full bodied- bouncy touchable hair start by spraying a dry shampoo like Davines’ Hair Refresher onto the root area. Brush the dry shampoo through the hair with a Mason Pearson style brush. I recommend Marilyn Brushes “The New Yorker” for a budget friendly approach. Working in horizontal sections with a large barrel iron spray Davines No Gas hairspray onto each section of hair. Brush spray through with your boar bristle brush. Start curling your hair from roots to ends. This will give you more body and volume rather than starting to curl from ends to root. Once all the hair is curled brush out gently for soft touchable hair.
“All that Glitters”
This dress screams New Years Eve and bubbly!
Tousled Texture in the hair gives the dress some edge. Starting in the crown take 1-2inch sections and gently backcomb using a brush like Spornette’s Little Wonder brush leave out a 1inch section around the hairline. take one section on either side of the head, pull hair towards face and backcomb. Once you’ve backcombed the hair into a crazy looking sculpture take the side of your “Little wonder” brush and comb the hair back away from the face. Use Davines Medium hold hairspray to direct flyaways away from the face. Gather hair in a faux hawk fashion and start inserting bobby pins until you love the way it looks!
If you’re planning a romantic dinner with your man and keeping the party classy this look is perfect.
I love the look of a french twist when the neckline is high. Instead of bobby pins try using chopsticks or even just a pencil to hold your hair in place! Below the image you will find a tutorial on how to get the look. Also, if you follow the directions for “Lady in Red” this will give your hairstyle a long lasting hold and texture.

Hairstyling for Czar by Ceaser Galindo with Original Mineral.
We achieved this look using O&M’s Style Guru to create a sleek and shiny wet appearance. We added a bit of texture to the mid lengths and ends by applying Original Queenie hairspray followed by the flat iron. A low fishtail pony was created and sewn into a modern chignon.
