Summer 2017 Beauty and Grooming Essentials Part Two

Hey! Before you run off to parts known and unknown to kick off what is going to be the best summer ever, we wanted to make sure that you had a whisper about the best beauty and men’s grooming essentials for Summer 2017. Check out “Summer 2017 Beauty and Grooming Essentials Part One” and read on for even more products that are going to make this season sizzle!

For The Guys: TME has always had a really strong male readership. We love that! And it was a specific endeavor on the part of Yvonne to bring the guys into the fold. We still find it kinda cute that the guys can be a little shy about asking questions. Don’t be! You deserve to pamper yourselves just as much as the ladies.

Our current favorites just for our guys … L’Occitane’s Cade Collection ($65) - rich with woody notes of juniper, sandalwood, pink pepper and rosemary, this set includes Cade Shaving Cream, Cade Shower Gel for Hair and Body and Cade After-Shave Balm. L’Occitane’s Mer & Mistral Collection ($75) – is bursting with zesty and sweet citrus, along with rosemary, pine and cypress! This is such a fresh and clean fragranced collection that had every member of Team TME in complete agreement that you need this for Summer 2017! The Mer & Mistral Collection includes Mer & Mistral Eau de Toilette, Shower Gel and Body Lotion. If you haven’t gotten one of Harry’s Shave Sets, treat yourself. A few years ago, Yvonne gave a Harry’s Razor to her “has everything, needs nothing” brother and he hasn’t used another brand since. Team TME’s Harry Pick; Harry’s Daily Face Wash ($7) and Harry’s Truman Razor Set ($15) that includes Truman Razor Handle, Foaming Shave Gel, 3 Blade Cartridges, and Travel Blade Cover. Rounding out our picks for the guys is the Evolutionman Sport Guy Kit ($80) that includes Nu Noir Face & Body Wash, Moisture Protect SPF 20, Lip Balm SPF 15, EVMAN Sport Bottle, and EVMAN Square Dopp Kit Bag.

Lovely Locks: Wouldn’t it be amazing if the summer breezes didn’t blow up our hair? Sun at the beach, chlorine poolside, humidity … oh vey! Before you resign yourself to donning that hat that you bought for Coachella, Team TME has a few other options for controlling unruly summertime hair.

Sun and After Sun Hair Care: Phyto Plage Protective Sun Veil ($30) – this lightweight sun mist protects hair and guards color from UV damage or Macadamia Professional Sun Shield Dry Oil Veil ($20) with its delicious coconut cream scent, this pre-sun treatment spray shields hair from harmful rays. When you’re done playing in the sun, Macadamia Professional After Sun Leave-In Repair ($20) is perfect, as it absorbs instantly and helps nourish summer hair.

Wash It Out: There are so many shampoos and conditioners, but a few new ones that we are loving for the summer are the TRESemmé Bontanique Collection that includes TRESemmé Bontanique Shampoo and Conditioner ($5.99 each) which are infused with coconut milk and aloe vera.  There is also Macadamia Professional Endless Summer Sun & Surf Shampoo and Conditioner ($20 each) that keeps hair protected against UV rays while you’re soaking up the sun … and against chlorine and salt while you’re splashing around in the pool and ocean. Our final recommendation is Phyto Plage After-Sun Rehydrating Hair & Body Shampoo ($24), which is the perfect one-step cleansing gel to wash away sand, salt, and chlorine from hair, leaving it deeply moisturized and super-soft.

Stylin’: Beachy waves are a timeless summer look. Actually, we saw a lot of beach waves during Fashion Week. The relaxed gentle wave seems to fit just about everyone – no matter face shape or hair length … and even hair texture. Beach or “Boho” waves are just as appropriate for the office as for the beach. To achieve the look, it begins with the correct styling products. Our current favorites; ALTERNA Haircare Bamboo Beach Summer Ocean Waves Tousled Texture Spray ($22) and the BEACHWAVER Pro ($199.99), an innovative professional rotating curling iron invented by celebrity hairstylist and TME favorite Sarah Potempa. If you’re looking for volume, Caviar Anti-Aging Miracle Multiplying Volume Mist ($28)! 

Protect and Hold: Of course your only option for beautiful summer hair is not bound to beach waves. Peruse our Summer Beauty section for hairspiration and the tools for achieving those easy styles are plentiful. Our current favorites; Kérastase L'incroyable Blowdry ($40) to complete protect your locks; Kerastase Elixir Ultime Oleo Complex ($58), Phyto Phytolisse Ultra Glossing Finishing Serum ($30), Alterna Bamboo Kendi Oil Dry Oil Mist ($25), and Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Perfect Texture Finishing Spray ($28). For on the go, we love Bosley Pro BosRenew Volumizing Dry Shampoo ($19) and Macadamia Professional Style Extend Dry Shampoo ($25).

The Tools: Anything that makes our lives easier is a major plus, especially when it comes to our hair or makeup during the summer. Perhaps, these two collections maybe oddly paired but we loved these so much that we had to mention them to our favorite people … our readers! Artis Fluenta 9 Brush Set ($450) and the invisibobble Original Secret Garden Collection ($25), which is a limited edition collection of hair rings that are perfect for a sleek ponytail or pinless chignon.

Have a safe and amazing holiday weekend! ~xo Team TME

Sarah Potempa Styles Our Favorite Celebrities

One of Team TME’s favorite stylists, Sarah Potempa, is back at it with the beachy waves that are too perfect for summer! Celebrity hairstylist and inventor of The BEACHWAVER, Sarah Potempa has styled some of our favorite celebs this past week (Lea Michele, Mandy Moore, and Kaley Cuoco) and we have the step by steps straight from the queen herself!

Lea Michele

Step One: Beachwaver the entire head with The BEACHWAVER Co. Beachwaver 1.25

Step Two: Pull the hair back into a sleek centered ponytail

Step Three: Spray the hair with Aussie Sprunch Mousse + Leave-In Conditioner and lightly tease for volume

Mandy Moore

Step One: Take a quarter size amount of Aussie Sprunch Mousse + Leave-In Conditioner and work it through damp hair. Next, blow-dry your bangs down using the Beachwaver Pro Dry and the On Set Styling Brush. Once the bangs are dry, pin them off to the side using a small clip, allowing the hair to set. Continue to loosely dry your hair with the Beachwaver Pro Dry

*Pro tip: Always blow-dry your bangs first before doing the rest of your hair to avoid cowlicks

Step Two: Using Darby Clips, divide your hair into sections. Curl the sections of hair using The BEACHWAVER Co. Beachwaver S1. Mandy's hair was curled away from her face on the left and away from her face on the right, so that her curls are going in the same direction on each side of her head

Pro tip: Leave about an inch of your ends out when curling, in order to achieve effortless looking waves

Step Three:  Finally, spray hair with a flexible or texturizing hairspray like Aussie Flexible Hold Hairspray, and run your fingers through the curls to give hair additional volume and natural movement

Kaley Cuoco

Step One: Apply mousse to wet hair then blow dry using the On Set Styling Brush

Step Two: Divide hair into sections with Darby Clips then Beachwave with the The BEACHWAVER Co. Beachwaver 1.25 and finish with a flexible hold hairspray

Runway Show How To:

  1. Prep hair with a mega lift volumizing mousse and blow dry up with the Beachwaver Co. Pro Dryer. Loosely blow dry hair to create natural volume with a natural part. Bring all hair forward and separate in to the left and right sides. Start by sectioning hair from the bottom up using the Beachwaver Co. Darby Clip.
  2. Using the Beachwaver® S1, clamp near the ends of your hair, leaving about 1” out at the ends. Then, press the arrow away from your face. The curling iron does all the work for you by rotating in both directions.  You control the temperature, the speed and the rotation, so it works on all hair types and textures. Continue to curl up in large 2” sections as you move your way up. Then repeat on the other side.
  3. Spray a flexible hairspray on the Beachwaver Co. On Set Styling Brush, which is a combination of boar bristle and nylon bristles. Brush out all the waves. Finish by smoothing the ends with a lightweight shine serum.
    • Tip: If you have curly or frizzy hair, try the Beachwaver Co. Mini Touch Up Iron (which was also used on some of the girls backstage the VS Fashion Show)

Kendall Jenner After Party How To:

  1. Start using the Beachwaver S1, section by section. Leave out about two inches of the ends. Curl away from the face.
  2. Add a texture spray to the roots and at the top to give the look a lot of volume.
  3. Use the Beachwaver Co. Mini On Set Styling Brush to tease roots and add additional volume.
  4. Pull top section of hair up with a clear elastic at the top of the head. Twist the bun to add texture.
  5. Back brush hair at the roots with the Beachwaver Co. Mini On Set Styling Brush.
  6. To recreate the look at home, the Beachwaver Co. Half Up provides an effortless solution!             
  7. Finish by pulling out beachwaves to the side.


Lily Aldridge After Party How To:

  1. Part hair in the center.
  2. Use the Beachwaver S1 rotating curling iron, which works in both directions to give you a more natural looking wave.
  3. Blowdry bangs forward to provide movement in the front of the hair.
  4. Use the Beachwaver Co. Mini Touch Up Iron to smooth bangs and provide shiny movement in the front.
  5. Soften the waves and make them a bit more straight and textured.


Sara Sampaio After Party How To:

  1. Create a French dutch fishtail braid in the back of the hair. Bring hair all the way around the back to then bring it around to one side of the hair to create a side braid.
  2. Repeat the same pattern over and over, and say the mantra in your head "left under to the right, right under to the left.” Braid all the way down
  3. Then turn it into a three-strand braid. Secure with clear elastic.
  4. Use the Beachwaver S1 and a little of the Beachwaver Co. Ceramic Styling Iron at the roots to provide more texture. 

Rachel Hilbert After Party How To:

  1. Create classic, gorgeous beachwaves by using the Beachwaver S1.
  2. Spray hair with a flexible styling hairspray.
