Holiday Glamour & Beauty Secrets from Latina Fashionista and Beauty Expert Caroline Ortiz

It is Christmas time again, and for Latinos, it is a time to get together with family and friends to celebrate this magical time of the year, Latin style!

Latinos love to dress up for all of the festive parties and nights out on the town in celebration of the season.  Latinos want to look their best in the presence of their friends and family when they are home for the holidays. Thus, holiday glamour and beauty secrets are highly sought after by Latinos.

So what is in style for the holiday this season?

Central Pennsylvania’s very own Latina fashionista and beauty and hair expert Carolina Ortiz shares some holiday glamour and beauty secretes with our readers (and their families).


What are some holiday-party hair ideas?

This holiday season, braids, French twists and soft curls are really in for long hair; fun, textured and sleek for short hair; and for women with thinning or complete hair loss due to stress or any health issues, there’s always the possibility of getting a wig and have us make it look like your own hair or simply have fun with it. Also, find ways to manage your stress levels. I personally enjoy dancing and exercising to reduce stress levels. Others enjoy reading, going for a walk and doing yoga. Talk to your health team to find out what works best for you.


Any general beauty tips for hair and skin-care?

The weather is changing, and with that, your hair and skin gets dry, so moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!


What are some easy ways to keep your hair healthy and beautiful for the holidays?

Always use the right products for the texture and needs of your hair. Always use professional products, like R+Co.

What are some common hair problems?

We come across a lot of dryness, breakage and brittle hair due to lifestyle hair abuse, health issues or simply not knowing how to take care of your own hair, and that’s what we are here for.


What are some services offered at your beauty salon (Downstreet)?

At Downstreet, we offer hair cutting and coloring, texture changes, manicures and pedicures, facial-hair removal and special occasion hair and make up.
