Summer Sensations at

Summer is the season of Raqs Sharqi (Bellydance) conferences. It’s the perfect time to hit the beach between shows and workshops in bright colours and pretty prints. Below are some of our summer sensation picks.

Some of our fans said they wear these ensembles out and about for everyday wear. This one is one of the more popular ones. It comes in seafoam green, pink grapefruit and white sands.

Lovely lace ensembles are soaring in popularity and these are actual 25yrd skirts that you can enjoy as you stroll on the beach. Note that you can also wear a neat top underneath that you can switch out with a solid colour swim suit or wear as is.


If you’re looking to do Yoga on the beach, consider investing in some flexible one and two piece suits that work well for morning workouts.


And of course, when you’re ready to hit the town you can doll it up in this cute ruffle black and white skirt . Loved for the stretchy waist and that it can be paired with a cute black top. Currently on clearance for $19.99

Bellydance Presentation

A troupe or sololist’s overall presentation should not only demonstrate their best skills but also their best selves. It’s one of the reasons we’re striving to provide a diverse offering of raqs wear and bellydance costumes to our fans. We want everyone to have a wide variety of options that fit their individual “Bellydance Presentation” needs. This now extends to hair and make-up.


Earlier this year we teamed up with HairLaVie haircare, testing out what products worked best. Some of you all know our product manager, Judith. She is championing these great hair products because of the amazing results she has seen after using them on her own hair. In the coming days we’ll be talking about specific differences in this hair care line as compared to what we’ve been using ourselves.



A great costume deserves the best hair and make-up to compliment it and we know you’ll benefit from combining these great products in your routine. We’ve shared with you our costume and hair care suggestions. We want to hear from you about your favourite make-up and feature many of you in your costumes while wearing your favourite brand of eye shadow, lipstick and more. Also if you’re looking to try HairLaVie let us know. We’re giving away HairLaVie gifts to some of our fans.

Send us your pictures via facebook or tweet us Tell us your hair, make-up and overall bellydance presentation goals. One of you will be the lucky recipient of a basket of hair products from HairLaVie ! Looking forward to hearing from you!

Present Your Best Self!
