Three Must See Reality Shows

The next time you find yourself flipping through the channels or looking over streaming apps to find something to watch, consider turning to reality shows instead of scripted television shows. Reality shows now run the gamut from cooking shows that feature celeb chefs like Gordon Ramsey to dancing shows that let you see some of your favorite stars dance across the screen. No matter where you live, whether you have a Netflix account or if you still rely on cable, there are still a few top reality shows that you should watch, including current and previous seasons.

Strictly Come Dancing

Strictly Come Dancing is a reality competition show that pits celebrities from different areas against each other. They partner with a professional dancer, learn at least one new dance every week and compete live in front of an audience and panel of judges. The show is so popular that it inspired Dancing With the Stars in America and similar shows in countries around the week. While some think Craig Revel Horwood is the odds on favorite to win the current season, his competition stepped up their game in recent weeks, which leaves fans wondering who will come out on top.

Top Chef

Fans of cooking shows often pick Top Chef as one of their favorite reality shows. Top Chef picks professional chefs to compete in multiple challenges every week. They might have 20 minutes to create a recipe using an ingredient on the spot or more than 24 hours to work in teams and create dishes for an upcoming party. A panel of professional chefs and food experts pick their three favorite and least favorite dishes each episode and eliminate at least one chef. The show even had a spin off devoted to dessert chefs.

Kitchen Nightmares

Gordon Ramsey owns several restaurants in the United States and Britain and appears on a handful of TV shows every year. One show that fans pick as their favorite is Kitchen Nightmares. Originally broadcast in the UK, there is now an American version of the show too. Ramsey goes to failing restaurants, meets with the chefs, talks to customers and offers helpful suggestions on how to turn those restaurants around.

Reality shows let you escape for an hour and enjoy watching drama unfold in front of you. Some of the top reality shows currently on the air include Top Chef, Strictly Come Dancing and Kitchen Nightmares.

Dealing with Cowlicks: Tips For The Grooms Who Have Cowlicks

 Cowlicks occur as a result of hair strands growing in opposite directions. While this may not sound very bad, cowlicks are nasty and taming them is pretty troublesome.

If you have a cowlick and are tired of the wild strands of hair that never seem to hold as you want them to, you’ve come to the right place. Here are four tips to help you deal with cowlicks.

 Identify Cowlicks

Cowlicks can be identified easily- you just need to look for a swirl of hair strands to spot one. A cowlick on the crown of the head is common, but a lot of people have cowlicks towards the front of the head and near the hairline. It is also possible for a person to have two cowlicks!

Identifying cowlicks and the times when hair strands are most uncontrollable will help you decide on the course of action.

 Try a New Haircut

Cowlicks can make hair strands in the area stand out from the rest or make you look like you have a bald spot. Depending on where you have a cowlick, the right cut and hairstyle will help tame the unruly tuft of hairr.

➢ On the Crown

The best way to hide a cowlick on the crown of the head is to go for a buzz cut. In case you don’t want to cut your hair very short, and if you’ve noticed that your cowlick is manageable when your hair is a particular length, ask your barber to cut your hair accordingly.

Alternatively, you can grow your hair long so that the weight of the hair causes the cowlick to stay put. Style long hair in a messy bun to hide the cowlick, or get a taper haircut with long hair along the front of the head up to the crown and short cropped hair on the sides.

➢ In the Front

Cowlicks in the front of the head and near the hairline are the worst. If you have such a cowlick, get a military cut to keep hair tamed. You can also grow your hair long and style it in the direction of hair growth.

If you want to style hair in the opposite direction of growth, you’ll have to use styling techniques and products as discussed further.

➢ At the Back

Cowlicks at the back of the head or at the nape of your neck can look just as awkward. Go for a tapered cut near the neck and visit your stylist regularly to keep hair trimmed to the perfect length. You can also grow out your hair and style with the right tools and products.

 Heat Style Your Hair

If chopping your locks isn’t an option, heat styling is the way to go. The process isn’t rocket science, and you can get the hang of it quickly even if you’ve never used heat styling tools before. What’s more, heat styling can hold wild hair strands in place until the next time you shampoo!

Be armed with necessary tools and supplies- you’ll need a blow-dryer, a flat iron, styling sprays, a heat protectant spray, brushes, and combs.

Remember to work on wet hair; if hair dries out before you’re finished styling it, spritz with water. For some people, simply blow-drying hair in the opposite direction of growth is enough. If you have a stubborn cowlick, use a styling comb or a round brush to hold hair in place and then blow-dry it.

Another way to heat style hair is to use a flat iron. Using this tool is particularly easy when dealing with cowlicks on the crown or at the back of the head. Just clamp the iron as close as possible to the scalp and pull hair through it slowly. Curve the iron slightly to get desired results.

Heat styling your hair too frequently can result in split ends and damaged hair, so always use a heat protectant spray before styling. Follow up with a hair spray to hold the hair for a longer time. Most importantly, exercise caution when working with heat styling tools.

Use the Right Products

You’ll find a variety of hair creams, pomades, and sprays to help tame your cowlick. With creams and greases, you only need to take a little product and work it between your fingers before applying to the hair to hold strands in place. Note that using a lot of hair product can make hair look limp, so use sparingly.

Not all cowlicks can be tamed with hair products, so you might need to heat style your hair first and then use a hair product on a few strands. Furthermore, hair products like sprays, pomades, and gels won’t work for stubborn cowlicks; choose a stronger product like wax instead, and finish off with a hair spray!

We learned here how to deal with cowlicks but how can we forget or ignore those important essentials that enhance the look of any groom? Essentials like skin care, shaving, manscaping, dressing style, trimming facial hair, manicure are also the most important. From all above, the dressing style impacts more than other essentials. To give a real touch of looking a perfect groom, one can go for custom suits which can be tailored as per your requirement giving you the best fit and for skin care, shaving, hair care, facial and massage, the salons are always ready to serve you!

 Conclusion

Cowlicks are tricky and there’s no way to get rid of them. But that doesn’t mean you don’t have any hope! With the tips given here, you now know that managing cowlicks is possible and easy. So get working on your cowlick right away!

Should you claim a Verizon FIOS coupon?

Verizon is one of the hottest entertainment providers right now. It provides both internet and television. A Verizon promotional code would benefit you greatly. But before you claim it, you should do an analysis of the kind of service Verizon provides and match it with your need.

 photo Girls-Shopping_zpsiwkpxu5m.jpg

What Do You Get?

Verizon’s biggest merit is its super fast internet speed. You need to think about your Internet usage. Do you use it as an average person would, or do you use it a lot? Average use would include random surfing, a game or two, social media, news, a few videos, looking up the odd recipe or two. Extensive use would include working from home and using the Internet in the process, for example. If you are a Netflix addict and view it for a lot of hours a day, then too you would be an extensive user. If you are addicted to YouTube or online gaming, you are an extensive user. Any activity which causes you to use the Internet a lot would come under this. If you come under the category of extensive user, you can easily choose Verizon as your provider. As an average user, if you really want lightning fast Internet, it is a good option. Television broadcast provided by Verizon is good enough, nothing exceptional. In fact, you get what you pay for. There are many providers who actually charge for more data than you consume. You can check this by verifying usage from the device versus what you actually get charged for. Verizon keeps it simple and you will be able to enjoy your money’s worth.
