What are your thoughts on the beauty industry today?
Today's beauty industry is often slammed as shallow, self-indulgent, materialistic and even destructive. An increase in mental health problems (such as eating disorders, low self-esteem, and depression) has been linked with pressures laid down by a money-driven beauty industry. Some people believe we place too much importance on material goods like make-up and other grooming products. Most religions, including Christianity, Islamism, and Buddhism, denounce excessive grooming as narcissistic and immoral, as well as irrelevant in the grander scheme of things. But in denouncing these rituals, are we, in fact, underestimating the importance of beauty? After all, common sense tells us that beauty is important. Why else would we sacrifice so much in our attempts to achieve it
What is the most trending look for men and women?
Confidence is great but a well-chosen wardrobe and great grooming habits definitely won’t hurt.
Men - women love a man who knows how to take care of himself and who takes pride in his appearance. Clean shaven rugged, whatever .so go beyond the basics of maintaining good hygiene, and build a solid grooming routine.
Women - Beyond bouncy blowouts and teasing combs, this year it’s all about thicker, healthier-looking tresses. Try using volume-boosting products to create over-sized styles such as voluminous topknots or wide braids.
While a great cut is crucial, what’s happening around the face is just as important. Update your look by adding bangs of any length or thickness.
Different variations of this classic style are going to be everywhere. There are so many ways to turn up your tail: Wear it high at the crown of your head or down by the nape, try a tiered style, or wrap the base in a chic ribbon.
While polished curls are always pretty, more effortless textures are in. Show off your hair’s natural body by creating soft bend with your curling iron and spritzing in wave spray.
The best way to make a blunt bob feel current is to keep the length at chin-level and only add layers on the inside.
Embrace the 90s with short shaggy layers and bangs a la Bridget Bardot.
If you like an edgy pixie, try rocking an extra short bob. It makes a statement while showing off your features.
Trimming hair right at or a little below the collarbone is flattering for everyone.
A straight-across cut makes the hair appear fuller— just incorporate a few layers near the front to keep the style soft and feminine

Not using products
Leaving hair too wet
Using very hot water to wash
Using excessive oil
