Wavy Hair Problem Solvers of the Week

If you have wavy or curly hair, you probably have as many hairstyling products stashed under your sink and in your medicine cabinet as I do (read: too many to count). And you’ve probably tossed double that amount in the trash after a few tragic uses, too. Am I right? That’s why, when I find a product or cocktail of products that work wonders on my medium-thick, frizzy waves, I talk about them. So here I am, (sorta) talking…

After I finished up what was likely my tenth or twelfth bottle of this delicious creamy mousse from Sebastian, and once I polished off this family of wave enhancing miracle workers, I reached for two products I hadn’t previously tried. Continue reading

The Hair Color Trend I’m Seriously On Board With

karlie-kloss-babylights

When it comes to natural-looking hair color trends, first there was Ombre and then Sombre (subtle Ombre) and now it’s all about babylights. Babylights (as seen most recently on model Karlie Kloss) are very finely painted highlights that result in a stunning and super natural-looking finish. If you, like me, are someone who has always wanted to have the color you did as a child, babylights are just the ticket. What’s also great about them is that you’ll need to color your hair less often to get the best results, according to L’Oréal Paris Consulting Celebrity Colorist Kari HillContinue reading

NYFW Runway vs. My Way: Ballerina-Inspired Updo

tracy reese spring/summer 2015 new york fashion week ballet-inspired updo

 

Sleep- and shower-deprived ladies … this one’s for you. If you’re looking for a way to stretch the length between shampoos, the hairstyle seen at the Tracy Reese Spring/Summer 2015 New York Fashion Week show is for you. I absolutely love runway hairstyles in general because so many of them are done in about the time we spend on our own hair at home — a few minutes. The difference is that these are cooked up by the creators of cool. I can’t wait to wear this ballerina-inspired look created by master stylist Bok-Hee using the Scunci x Tracy Reese ready-to-wear collection. The collection, unfortunately, won’t be available until 2015, but you probably have some headbands laying around at home that will give you a similar effect. I did. Here’s how to get the look in seconds: Continue reading

Twisted Tuesday: The Emmys Edition

Much to my delight, the most stunning hairstyles on last night’s 66th Annual Prime Time Emmy Awards red carpet were of the twisted and braided variety. Claire Danes — my pick for best everything of the evening — put an elegant spin on a fishtail braid with a pinned-up chignon version, and January Jones sported a modern and edgy take on a tightly twisted updo. While some haters dissed Jones’ textured bangs — claiming they looked a mess — I think they added a youthful-looking finish that most award show updos lack. Here’s how I’d recreate these looks without a pro stylist or hours spent doing them: Continue reading
