The most beautiful hair in the world ,J.F.Lazartigue
It is about 3 years that I've used J.F.lazartigue shampoos ,I know that it isn't the best in the industry right now but the important thing is that its available in Iran (thx God :)) ,I am very sensitive about my skin and my hair stuffs and they must have good smell s, so this is the one of the good brands that I've try it , I used to use Tony and Guy's shampoos and some other brands before.so you must already know this post is more about J.F.Lazartigue brand and in future I will try to grow your knowledge about more beauty products.
Jean-Francois Lazartigue is one of the most renowned hair care specialists in France. He began his career as a hairdresser and opened his first salon in “Rue de Courcelles”, Paris, in December 1963.
He has always been fascinated by hairdressing techniques and interested in the health of the hair.
By 1972 his salon had been established as a prominent center in Paris for relaxing the coarsest textures of hair. Today it is still a favorite for French editors and for the most demanding clients.
Driven by a true passion for hair, Mr. Lazartigue came across many unaddressed hair issues such as overprocessed hair damages by oxydation color, perms, straightening, ironing or even daily blow-drying. With the purpose of solving these issues, he created his own products to repair, protect and embellish hair.
In 1976: the j.f. lazartigue brand was born creating tremendous innovative products.
- the treatment cream shampoo with collagen
- the pre-shampoo cream with shea butter
- the vita-cream with milk proteins
Facing an outstanding success, Mr Lazartigue developed a number of prominent hair treatment centers in France where he offers a hair & scalp analysis. This computerized microscope determines a personalized prescription of treatments for each costumer. He was also the first to incorporate, into hair care, the same ingredients as in skin care (AHA, collagen, vitamins).
Mr. Lazartigue’s philosophy has always been to select the best available ingredients and use them in high concentrations. All of them are tested in the J.F. Lazartigue laboratories in France as well as in his salons & treatment centers.
He is a unique entrepreneur, focusing his strength and consciousness on the needs of the customers. His breakthrough products has his clients addicted to his treatments and, he has revolutionized the hair care industry with constant innovation.
In 1987, he brought his complete line to the USA. Based on 40 years experience, Mr Lazartigue created:
• In 2001: Stymulactine 21 treatment spray against hair loss.
• In 2003: “Les Soins d’Exception” Haute Couture for the Hair
• In 2005: Moisturizing Mask and our Men’s Line
• In 2008: Soy Milk Line dor Dry and Damaged Hair, Anti-Frizz Smoothing Straightening Line, Pure Botanical Essential Orange Oil Line - All Paraben Free
The j.f. lazartigue group today:
- An international brand distributed in more than 60 countries
- Treatment products available for retail and backbar use
- A non-damaging color process 100% ammonia & peroxide free
- A non-damaging straightening process based on 70% plant extracts
the products of this brand is categories in these parts :
• Special Treatments
• Styling Products
• Hair Fragrances
In the future I try to talk more about the products of this brands
On the Kim 's blog you can see step by step of her make up ,you know Jayce Boneli ? She is a talented celebrities make up artist , you can find her on facebook or in her blog .
I never judge about people's character but inside myself as a eastern girl I love Kim Kardashian style most of the time , She wears best make up and have stunning hair and lashes , She is look like eastern women (ofcource she is from an Amrenian blood)so after I've watched her I never want to dye my hair , I want to keep them natural and brown, She is the one of that person I follow her stylish , so I think this post can be interest for you too. I am sure you can't find all the products that she used in Iran but it is important we try to improve our beauty culture that we miss it in Iran (unfortunately) .
I try to point out all the important parts and to find all the products link and pictures,so I hope you enjoy it .
I try to write this blog in Persian too in the near future .
Step one : KIM'S SKIN
- It is very important to keep up your skincare regimen to keep it is glamour & to help you have clean smooth look .
- First she applies PerfectSkin La Mer lifting serum ,and PerfectSkin eye cream .( so we can see how much the basic creams can be important)
- She used Foundation Primer by Laura Mercier .( In Iran you can find Foundation Primer from M.A.C for oily skin and Clinique for dry skin (both of them are great .)
- On warm summer days try cooling your Foundation Primer in the refrigerator for refreshing the skin and reduce puffiness ( I 've try it , it is so great)
Step three: FOUNDATION
- She likes to keep Kim’s overall skin to appear matte so She uses Sheer Matte by NARS.
- Blend into the skin with a foundation brush for a flawless touch. ( if you want the best result of your make up ,you should have best brushes , the best one has soft hair ,most of the time they are natural ,so they are expensive too ,but they are very important tools in professional make up )
Step four :UNDER EYES
- she uses Secret Camouflage by Laura Mercier. (this product is the perfect trick for completely camouflaging dark circles, minor imperfections, and discoloration .)
Step five: SET
Step six: BROWS
- Remember, to finish off the eye, she curl her lashes using Shu Uemura eyelash curler.
Step eight: KIM'S CHEEKS
Step nine: KIM'S LUMINOUS GLOW
- She applied Lust Dust by benefit right above the hollows of her cheeks & bridge of her nose.
Step ten: KIM'S LIPS
PS:as you can see the NARS brand is as good as MAC but in Iran there is about 1 year that every one talks about MAC but noone knows enough about it and just want to show off so dont trust every salons in Tehran or another place that talk about MAC and say we use it ,I went to GOLBANOO salon in ZAFAR and they describe that the price of bride make up is different and it is because of the different type of MAC product ,I think it is redicules and everyone should be aware and dont lose their money on this way .
She tweezed them using Tweezerman tweezers.( tweezers is very important to pick up the eyebrow but in Iran you hardly find good one, I try alot of them and just ETERNET one was good ,it is German brand and you cant find it easily :( )
- Then filled them in with Benefit’s Brow Zing. *Use an angled brush and apply soft strokes of the pigmented wax to shape and define the brow, then take your small blending brush to apply and set the brow zing’s powder to fill in sparse areas and lock the brows into place.
Step seven: KIM'S EYES
