Malibu C Zinc C Serum, which reduces or eliminates skin redness and burning caused by reactions to hair, skin and waxing services.
It's also the goto daily serum for sensitive or reactive skin. We promise that this isn't a product that makes a slight difference; it calms down irritation in a hurry.

MASTERCLASSAnn Bray's Original Rose
What started out as a beautiful cover in March 2012, turned into an international hair sensation that has continued to circle the globe. Ann Bray did this beautiful step-by-step for Aquage, with none other than Luis Alvarez at the camera photographing her every move.
Since that time, something else has come out of this our magazine cover shoot: Ann Bray was "discovered" by Hollywood and has since become an important stylist for Hunger Games: Catching Fire. She's now working on the third movie in the series. Love!

How to do a diagonal four-strand braid hairstyle
Step 1: On the right side of the front hairline, take a section of hair from the top and divide into four parts. Step 2: Start braiding on the left side of the split. Take the leftmost strand (the first strand) and put it over the second, under the third, and use the fourth strand (far right) to wrap around the first. Step 3: Continue braiding, but with the tieback. Start weaving from the left side; take the leftmost strand (the first one) and add a strand of loose hair from the left side, combining both. Place the second strand under the third. Then take a strand of loose hair from the right side and combine it with the strand of the braid on the extreme right (the fourth strand) and wrap it with the first. Step 4: Continue braiding the four strands with the tieback. Keep braiding until the nape of the neck is reached. The braid should go diagonally! Step 5: At the nape of the neck, secure the braid with a band and leave the rest of the hair in a ponytail. Step 6: Take a thin strand of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the band so as to cover it. Use a pin to secure the piece of hair.
How to do an original French fishtail braid hairstyle
Step 1: Separate a strand of hair from the frontal-top part of the head and divide it into four parts- two thin side strands and two thick central strands (left and right). Step 2: Take a thin strand from the right side and connect it with the left stand going over all the right strands. Step 3: The thin strand from the left side goes under the thick left strand and connected to the right strand. Step 4: Continue braiding but now picking up along small strands of hair. Separate the next thin strand on the right side, pick up a small strand from loose hair on the right and connect it with the thin strand on the right. Next, take the combined strands, pass it over the rest of the right strands and connect it with the left strand. Step 5: Separate the next thin strand on the left side, pick up a small amount of hair from the loose part on the left and combine both strands together. Pass the combined strands under all left strand and connect it with the right side. Step 6: Continue braiding with tieback from both sides until the edge hairline on the nape of the neck. Step 7: Braid the rest of the hair in the same technique but without the tieback. Step 8: Secure the braid with rubber band.
