Following party rules ensures fun for everyone

Heading to a work party?

Nearly 70 percent of employers say they’ll have a holiday party this year, according to a CareerBuilder survey. But office parties can be dangerous to navigate for both employees and employers.

Here are 10 tips from Business Insider on how to enjoy the festivities without suffering any unfortunate negative job repercussions the next day:

  1. Make an effort to show up at the office holiday party. It shows your commitment to your job and company.
  2. Don’t be the first person to leave. It makes it look like you have better things to do and never wanted to be there in the first place.
  3. Dress appropriately.  Just because the party is after work hours, that doesn’t mean you should wear something that’s not work appropriate.
  4. Make sure your significant other knows what kind of attire is expected and if there are any topics they should avoid discussing.  Their behavior will reflect on you.
  5. Don’t be antisocial. Talk to people you don’t know and use the party as an opportunity to meet new people.
  6. Don’t get drunk. Set a limit for yourself before going to the party. Make sure you eat something to lessen the effects of alcohol.
  7. Keep your conversation positive. Don’t complain about your job or company. You never know who’s listening.
  8. Don’t talk about work. This is social time.
  9. Don’t make a fool of yourself. You don’t know who’s taking video or where it will wind up. Likewise, avoid posting negative comments and inappropriate photos of others to social media.
  10. And finally, make sure you say thank you to the host or party organizers.

How to clean your Halloween hair

It’s Halloween week, and there are lots of parties going on. Maybe you’ve decided to visit the salon with the best salon equipment in your area to get a special hair color for the holiday, or maybe you have decided on a do-it-yourself special Halloween hair look.

If your look includes adding extras to your hair, like glitter or dye, consider this: Before embellish your hair, you may want to give some thought to how you’ll get those extras out after the party’s over.

Allure magazine asked beauty professionals for their advice on Halloween hair.

If your costume putting involves glitter or fairy dust or anything sparkly in your hair, the pros recommend that you only use products that are meant to be used in hair. Using glitter lotion or lip

 gloss as an alternative will give you sticky hair that wants to hold on to that glitter for dear life, even when the party’s over.

Use a tint brush to apply the (correct) hair glitter product to your hair, and make sure you do the application somewhere where glitter is easy to clean up, like the bathtub or kitchen. Also recommended is deeply conditioning your hair before you put in glitter to make the sparkly stuff easier to remove.

If you want to use a temporary hair dye spray to change your hair color, professionals advise using a color close to your natural color to avoid permanent staining.

Another option if you plan to really get crazy with your hair décor is to book an appointment the next day with your salon to have it professionally cleaned. The pros recommend giving your salon a heads-up about what’s up with your head so they know you’re not just seeking a regular shampoo.

The best salons rely on the best equipment to help patrons get the look they’re seeking, whether it’s a special occasion or regular maintenance. For more information about the best salon equipment, visit Regal Hair’s website.

Spread an attitude of gratitude

When you think about the standout people and moments in your life, they can likely be broken down into two distinct categories: those that were reach-for-the-stars, over-the-moon-phenomenal, and those that made you feel so damn small you wished you could kick them in the shin and disappear. Now, keeping your personal examples in mind, which would you like to instill in others? Likely (hopefully!) not the latter.
