TAME YOUR MANE 5 no-heat styles for unruly hair By Shelby Newman

We’ve all been there - in a hurry to get ready in the morning and your outrageous bedhead just isn’t cooperating. It’s tempting to whip out the flat iron and crank it up to high heat, but doing this often will only weaken the quality of your hair. Whether it be frizz, out of control curls, hair that’s too thick, or even too thin, we’ve got the no-heat styles that are going to change your hair routine for the better. 1. Double French Braids The two french braid look is not only trendy, but it encompasses all parts of your hair, leaving no room for ‘hairrors’. Begin by fully brushing hair so there are no tangles. Next, part your hair in the middle and separate into two sections. Braid hair, starting close to the root, all the way down one side of your head and repeat on the other side. Finish with a light hairspray to control any flyaways. This look takes only minutes to accomplish and leaves hair looking sleek and trendy without the heat. 2. Sleek Pony A slicked back ponytail is one of the most underrated styles in the game. The movie Mean Girls says that you should only wear a ponytail once a week, but we would argue that you can rock this look all the time! Ariana Grande is infamous for her iconic high ponytail that she wears for almost

any occasion. Other red carpet celebrities have been seen sporting this look to formal events because it’s so easy to make it suitable for any type of event. Begin by brushing through hair to eliminate tangles. Next, apply a generous amount of hair mousse to the root area of your hair and brush it through. Using a hair elastic, tie hair in a tight ponytail, leaving out a small section. Wrap the left-out section of hair around the exposed hair tie to cover it and secure with a bobby pin. Finally, use a light hairspray to tame flyaways and keep the look in place all day. 3. Top Knot Bun No matter what problems your mane faces, you can always rely on a trustee top knot bun to save you in a hair emergency. After brushing through tangles, put your hair in a high ponytail, secured with a hair elastic. Next, begin wrapping hair in a twisting motion around the base of the ponytail. Once the bun is formed, wrap another hair elastic around it. Pull out small pieces from both sides of the front of your head to give it a more tousled look. If thin hair is your issue, use a bun donut at the base of your ponytail to give the illusion of thickness. 4. Down and Natural If you’re someone with unruly hair, you know that product is your best friend when wearing your

hair down. Never skip the leave-in conditioner after a shower. To construct waves and curls, use a curl constructing mousse on damp hair and scrunch it a few times and then don’t touch it anymore. The more you touch your hair, the more that frizz and oil from your hands will destroy your look. Finish with a light hairspray or argan oil for dry or damaged hair. Hair should dry looking fresh and controlled. 5. Double French Twists This look is a ‘twist’ on the classic french braid, but instead of braiding with three strands of hair you only need to use two. Begin by brushing out your hair and parting it in the middle. Grab a generously sized piece of hair located in the front of your head and split it in two. Next, twist the two pieces once and add more hair the bottom strand. Continue this pattern until you’ve reached the bottom of your head and repeat on the other side of your head. Secure the ends with a hair elastic and put hair in a low ponytail, bun, or even leave it down. Finish the look with a light hairspray to prevent flyaways. No matter your hair type, these no-heat styles will keep you looking fresh all year long without the burden of heat damage.

B Y D AW N H A R R I S S H E R L I N G , M . D . , F. A . C . P.

There is an old Edgar Allen Poe story where a man starts walking down a catacomb path, thinking he is just going on an ordinary journey, when his companion starts to bury him alive. The companion is carrying all the tools he needs to bury his “friend” and is even hinting that he might do so, but the man ignores all the warnings and merrily continues alongside his companion. That’s sort of what the flu is like. Just like the man, oblivious to the signs he is being given, no one thinks the flu might kill them. It is often lumped together with the ordinary cold, as in “cold and flu season” or “cold and flu remedies.” This is an unfortunate juxtaposition because it minimizes what the flu is and what it can do to the human body. We ignore warnings about the flu at our own peril. The flu, or influenza, is not a bad cold. It is also not a stomach virus. If you have the sniffles and a low-grade fever less than 100.5, odds are, it is not the flu. The flu is an infection with Influenza virus A or B. And if you’ve had it, you feel like you’ve been hit by a truck. Getting out of bed might prove challenging. Every muscle in your body will ache. Your temperature will likely go above 101. You may not feel like eating and have some nausea. Most people will have a little bit of a runny nose, possibly a sore throat, and oftentimes a cough. That’s what the flu has in common with a cold, which is caused by a different bunch of viruses. But you’ve never had a cold like this. When you have the flu, it is a struggle to do anything— at least for the first few days and up to a week. After that, and with a good immune system and a touch of luck (a healthy immune system does not guarantee recovery from the flu), you will start to feel better. But, unlike the common cold, it can take a month or longer to fully recover from the flu. That’s what happens to most people who have the flu. Other people don’t get better after a few days. They get worse. And while it is usually the very old, the very young, people who are already sick with a chronic

16

| TAMPASTYLEMAGAZINE.COM

disease, or pregnant women who get life threatening complications from the flu, almost every internist, pulmonologist, and infectious disease doctor has a story of at least one formerly healthy, young or middleaged adult who succumbed to the flu. Who might this young person who does not survive the flu be? In truth, it could be any of us. And that’s what is most scary about the flu. It can strike down anyone. For the 2017-2018 flu season, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimated nearly 80,000 deaths in the U.S. were caused by flu. Of these, over 10,000 occurred in adults 18-64 years old (https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/ burden/2017-2018.htm). What can you do to protect yourself from becoming a victim of the flu? First, unlike the man in the Edgar Allen Poe story, recognize that you are at risk. Second, get a flu shot. Any given flu season, it’s usually about 50% effective at preventing infection from influenza. So, the flu shot may not keep you from getting the flu. But neither will your seat belt prevent you from getting into a car accident. It will, however, protect you from dying if you should get into an accident. And that’s the best sales pitch for the flu shot. Very few people who have had the vaccination wind up in the hospital with the flu, and even fewer wind up sick enough to have to go to the ICU. If you should get the flu, the CDC estimates that getting the flu shot reduces the risk of winding up in the ICU by 82% in adults (https://www.cdc.gov/ flu/vaccines-work/vaccineeffect.htm). If, despite your best efforts, you should contract the flu, the best thing you can do is rest, drink lots of fluids, and take antiinflammatory medication to feel better. If you contact your doctor within the first few days of getting sick, he or she can prescribe a medication that may shorten the course of the flu by a day or two. The best thing you can do for your friends and coworkers if you are sick is to stay away. Keep sick kids out of school too. The flu can quickly turn into a horror story, and we should all try to keep each other safe during flu season.

Pajama Couture 2020 Chances are, your five-year-old self had, at some point, tried to wear pajamas out of the house. The chances are also high that, unless you had exceptionally cool parents, you were forbidden to do so. Fortunately, wearing pajamas out of the house is officially in, and your five-year-old self is screaming. Never again will you have to choose between comfort and style, because some of today’s hottest trends feature pajamas that you can wear in and out of the bedroom, and look great while doing it.

1. Silk Sets Matching sets are the perfect one-and-done outfit for any occasion. Celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Selena Gomez have been spotted flaunting chic silk sets. Go for a trendy pattern like striped or plaid that isn’t too busy. You can pair it with minimalist shoes like stilettos to make this a look that’s sure to turn a few heads. 2. Joggers There’s nothing more on-trend than combining sleek and slouchy pieces. The Kardashians are infamous for including sweatpants in their classy street style. In order to avoid looking like you just rolled out of bed, it’s important to find staple accessories that will complement such casual pants, like heeled booties and a trench coat or a blazer. 3. Wide-Leg Pants Wide-leg pants are not only comfortable, but a stylish way to execute pajama couture. Make

sure the leg of your pants hits no further than two inches above the ankle. This way, the pants will look clean and put together, rather than swallowing your lower half with fabric. To style them, you’ll want to pick out a top that accentuates your waist. To finish off the look, choose simple shoes, like flats, that won’t take too much attention away from the pants. 4. Lace Camisoles A lace camisole is a classic piece that will never date. There are lots of ways to dress it up, like pairing with a leather skirt and heels. If you are looking to go the more casual route, you can pair with jeans and boots. Either way, you’ll reap the comfort of wearing pajamas and the stylishness of an upscale outfit. 5. Robes The robe is debatably the most iconic statement piece in pajama couture. It is extremely versatile and can be worn a number of ways – as a dress, a jacket, or even a top. In the wintertime, robes can become great layering pieces, worn with a lighter top under it and even with heavier jackets over it. At first glance, you might think these styles look like you forgot to get dressed this morning. But the reality is, loungewear is the new streetwear. Take advantage of the comfort and style this trend offers because pajama couture is the ultimate ‘I woke up like this’.

now, and they pair well with a skinny jean and a cable knit sweater. Hair Clips Barrettes and hair clips are some of the hottest hair accessory trends of the season. A tortoise-shell printed hair clip is perfect for the minimalist that wants to break out of their simplistic habits without completely abandoning their stylistic roots. Hand Bags A woman’s purse is a vital component of her outfit. A cheetah print or snakeskin bag is a foolproof way to complement your look without the commitment of wearing a risky piece that can’t be removed.

The Hydration Boost You Didn’t Know You Needed Winter is the prime time for dry and cracking lips, hair, and skin. Dehydration is often the culprit, but in the winter months, cool, dry air is to blame. Tackle dry, peeling, unmanageable skin before it even happens by stocking up on our favorite chilly weather essentials. A hydrating skin mist is the secret tool you won’t know you were missing until you try it. Mists can be sprayed on the face, with or without makeup, so it’s the perfect midday pick-me-up when your skin starts to look like it needs some extra glow. The other must-have product is a moisturizing lip balm that will nourish and protect lips from drying out. It’s important to throw one of these bad boys in your bag every time you leave for easy access to reapplication.

start to brainstorm an alternative and realize that unfortunately, whipped cream will not do the job. Luckily, there are shaving cream substitutes that do not come in an aerosol can and are most likely already in your home. Coconut oil is a good place to start. Nowadays it seems that almost everybody has a

Unlike women who are blessed with concealer and mascara, men have a harder time hiding fatigue. So if you’ve been lacking on the sleep game lately, here are a few tricks for looking more rejuvenated. First things first, focus on staying hydrated. Staying hydrated is a simple health and beauty hack that many people forget about. So next time you get a bad night of sleep, drink a glass of water before you drown yourself in coffee. Aloe vera is another natural remedy that has multiple health and beauty benefits. The best form of aloe vera gel is from the plant itself. Take the natural

gel from the plant and apply under your eyes for ten minutes before rinsing off. You can even apply the gel before bed as part of your regular skin care regimen for an array of benefits, including anti aging properties. Chilled tea bags are a great hack for fast relief. All you need to do is dip two tea bags (preferably herbal tea) in cold water and place them in the fridge for a bit. Once they feel nice and cool, lay down and place them over your eyes for 25-30 minutes. You’ll instantly feel and look more rejuvenated.

handy dandy jar of coconut oil in their home, and for good reason. The popular elixir will give you a smooth shave that’ll leave your skin hydrated all day. If you don’t have coconut oil, baby oil and olive oil are alternatives that have similar benefits. Shea butter is another wonderful substitute that you can use due to its moisturizing properties. If you’re looking for something a bit more simple, body soap or conditioner will work like a charm!

To Beard, or Not to Beard

By Sara Cody

Beards. The one concrete common ground between men and women is their admiration for beards. You either have one or you don’t, but you never dislike them. Mustaches and Goatees don’t receive the same level of respect, and I’m not sure they ever will. With most trends, they come with an expiration date. They burst into the beauty scene and then quickly fizzle out as if they never even existed in the first place. Beards were a more gradual, naturally occurring trend. It seems like we should contemplate whether beards are even a trend at all. They might just be a blessing to the world of men’s grooming. And if they are a blessing, then to whom? From the looks of it, everybody loves beards, and I don’t think that love is going to fade anytime soon. Beards might just be the trend with no expiration date. Beards might just be here to stay...and I don’t think anybody is mad about that.

MEN’S STYLE

The Statement Sneakers By Shelby Newman Dad shoes are out.

Make a Statement! NIKE NIKE AIR MAX 270 REACT BAUHAUS The Bauhaus are designed with simple shapes and eyecatching colors typical of the Bauhaus movement. This style emerged from art and function, with a lightweight feel that softens each step and makes the fit smooth. $150 / Available at nike.com

Trash the low tops and walk into this season with the boldest kicks. We know what you’re thinking - the “ugly sneaker” trend is back, and you’re right! It’s back, and this time, the chunky sneakers are even better than before, with neon colors and patterns. These are hands down (or perhaps, feet down) the perfect way to amp up any outfit. If you’re style is a little more minimalistic, you can still rock this look by opting for more muted colors and exploring texture instead. If you’re a style daredevil, go for animal prints or colorful patterns. Either way, this trend looks fresh with staple street wear like joggers, or even in replacement of dress shoes, to tone down business attire for a more casual look.

Bleach Blonde Hair

Everything you need to know to cross over to the light side. Men everywhere are taking the peroxide plunge and bleaching their hair. This raises the question, should adult men be playing hair salon? We think yes! The dramatic contrast between naturally dark hair and the platinum locks is a hot trend. If you’re still having reservations about changing your hair, just look at celebrities like Pete Davidson, Jonah Hill, and even Zac Efron, who followed the trend in 2019. Before you run to the store and purchase your first bottle of bleach, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. Bleach is very damaging to your hair, especially when used incorrectly. If it’s left on for too long, it can cause irreversible damage, and in that case,

Keep on Shining MILKSHAKE SILVER SHINE WHIPPED CREAM Style and tone hair all in one. Keep bleach-treated hair vibrant and healthy with one use per week. Neutralizes yellow tones to leave hair looking sleek no matter what shade of blonde. $19.99 / Available at sleekshop.com

By Shelby Newman

you might end up rocking a buzz cut. Go to a trained hair professional rather than trying to DIY at home, especially if you have long or dark hair that may be difficult to bleach. That way, you know for sure your hair will be in good hands. It’s true that blondes have more fun, but there is an element of maintenance required to keep the fun going. Keep your locks shining bright with a toner like a purple shampoo or purple mousse. Applying a toner once a week can ensure the bleach won’t turn a brassy color. And as much as you love to use men’s three-in-one, invest in a hydrating conditioner that will keep your hair from looking and feeling like straw.

Glaucoma

Nora Lee Cothran, OD The Eye Institute of West Florida

Dr. Nora Lee Cothran is a boardcertified optometric physician, specializing in the diagnosis and medical management of glaucoma and neurological eye diseases. She expresses, “Although glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the world, we are fortunate to not only possess a vast array of resources to diagnose the various forms of the disease but, most importantly, we have an ever-expanding arsenal of tools, both medical and surgical, with which to slow the progressive vision loss that often ensues.”

Photo by Greta Green Photography

Upon her graduation from the University of Michigan, Dr. Cothran was commissioned as an Intelligence Officer in the United States Air Force. She actively participated in the Global War on Terror and was selected to serve as the Director of Intelligence for America’s first combat-capable F-22 Raptor squadron. Thereafter, her contributions to national security continued as a contracted Intelligence Analyst for the Department of Defense. Compelled to pursue a career in healthcare, Dr. Cothran earned her Doctor of Optometry from the Southern College of Optometry, in Memphis, TN and graduated with accolades that include The David P. Sloan Memorial Award, Presidency of the Gold Key International Honor Society and a National Eye Institute (NEI) travel grant to present her research findings to The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO).

Dr. Cothran completed her postdoctoral residency in ocular disease at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL. It was within this collaborative environment that Dr. Cothran was inspired to devote her career to caring for patients afflicted by glaucoma. “As scientists and physicians, we strive to continually learn as much as possible about the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative eye disease and it is with this knowledge that we are able to create the most comprehensive and robust management plan, tailored to each glaucoma patient, as an individual.” She is passionate about caring for patients in rural areas and has participated in medical missions to Mexico, Honduras, Jamaica, Belarus and Guatemala. In addition to volunteering for Remote Area Medical (RAM), she is also an active member of the Special Olympics Opening Eyes Program. In her free time, Dr. Cothran is an environmental advocate, dedicated to the protection of Florida’s freshwater resources. She is also a skilled technical diver, who enjoys exploring the vast network of underwater cave systems within our beautiful state. Dr. Cothran is accepting patients for new evaluations, referrals and continuity of care at The Eye Institute’s Largo, Clearwater and St. Petersburg locations.

Diane E. Kerris, OD

Bay Area Eye Institute

Dr. Diane E. Kerris has been practicing optometry for over two decades. She is a Salus University (formerly Pennsylvania College of Optometry) and Gannon University graduate who has focused her entire career right here in the Tampa Bay area. Shortly after graduation, Dr. Kerris began working in a multidisciplinary ophthalmology practice where she was able to gain experience in not only primary care, but also specialized eye care. A few years later, an opportunity to own a private practice became available and she eagerly accepted the new role. After caring for her patients for 14 years in a private setting she was led back to her career passion, working with ophthalmology. The dedication to her career was a sacrifice at times, but one she always knew would be worth the reward. “I knew from a very early age that I wanted to be a doctor. I didn’t know I couldn’t see well until I got my first pair of glasses in 2nd grade. I was amazed to see that grass had individual blades. A few years later I did a science fair project on the eye and this started my interest in the field.” Although she dabbled with the thought of different specialties, her family was what solidified her decision to enter the world of optometry. “As I was finishing up college, I realized that being a hands-on mom was a priority for me. I grew up with a stay at home mom and having her there for so many things meant the world to me. After some research and talks with my mom and dad, I decided that optometry was a great fit for me. It encompassed my love of medicine, my intrigue with the eye and my desire to be a hands-on mom,” she said. Now heading into her 23rd year of practice, Dr. Kerris appreciates each day that she gets to help someone see our world a bit more clearly. “Optometry allows me to help people in a variety of ways. Not only can I improve someone’s vision with glasses or contact lenses, but with the advances in technology and specialty lenses I can now help patients who might not have been able to be helped before.” She also partners with the patient’s primary care physician in evaluating their general health and maintaining their well-being. “I am also involved with caring for the patient’s overall health. So many body systems can manifest poor health or disease in the eye and I can get the patient the proper referral or care they need.” When she’s not practicing, you can find Dr. Kerris spending time with her family, cooking and learning about natural health and wellness.

Susan Truong, OD Beyond 20/20 Vision Strategist Dr. Susan Truong and her family immigrated to Florida in the 1970s from Vietnam, penniless and without speaking English. She learned that these were just obstacles, not excuses. Her parents impressed upon their five children that the key out of poverty is education. She was willing to do what it takes to achieve the American dream. She received her Doctor of Optometry from Nova Southeastern University in 2000. Today, she is a highly successful optometrist with multiple practices. As entrepreneurs, she and her husband are also real estate investors and own a thriving artsy bar in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. That is all exciting except for one thing. What Dr. Susan Truong did not realize is that striving for success had a major BLINDSPOT. She realized that the workaholic in her had been neglecting those most important to her, her family. This

Optometry

became more of a realization when she lost one of her younger brothers to cancer only nine days after his diagnosis. With this new insight, now as a Beyond 20/20 Vision Strategist, she has dedicated her life to helping others SEE BEYOND 20/20, so that not only do they better live into their vision, but are more equipped to transform that vision into reality. She is a brilliant speaker/coach who will help you to navigate life’s toughest challenges and assist you in building and living your greatest story ever. Today, her devotion is based on her core values of COMMITMENT, BELIEVE, and TRIUMPH. “I am deeply passionate about empowering people to have clarity and live a life beyond 20/20. No one said that your vision has to stop at 20/20. Your vision should be so big that it scares you. If this poor girl from Vietnam can do it, then so can you!”

Dry Eye Syndrome, Ortho-K, specialty contact lenses, cutting edge family eye care

Dr. Taylor Randich OD, Dr. Samuel Teske OD, Dr. Iris Matsukado OD The Eye Doctors Dr. Samuel Teske opened the doors to The Eye Doctors of New Tampa in 2008 nestled in the middle of a developing community on the North end of Tampa.
