The Chakra Balance Color Commitment

How about a New Year’s resolution to find balance, and get all of the pieces of your life working together cohesively? Wrapping pieces of your hair with the full rainbow is not only a fun and festive look for a New Year’s Eve party, but also a great reminder to kick off 2023 on the right foot! You can leave a well-secured wrap in your hair for about a month- or even rewrap and recap your progress throughout the year!

Beaded Silk Yarn For A Self-Care Starter Pack

Nothing says ‘I’m going to start prioritizing myself this year’ like a little extra time getting ready with some gorgeous, party-colored, hand-beaded or sparkle silk yarn. Incorporate it into a braided style, or clip it into the underside of your hair for a quick temporary extension. You can even use it as a hair tie, wrapping a bundle of strands around a relaxed updo, and tying them into a bow. Regardless, this incredibly soft yarn is sure to get your creativity going for 2023!
