“Color looks for this holiday season are trending toward the warm and vibrant, including rich browns, deep coppers, and reds,” says Tonya Vulaj, senior stylist and colorist at Salon Ziba NYC. “Hair looks even more beautiful and luminous for holiday when accented with natural-looking balayage and free-form hair-painting techniques. For festive events, you can’t miss with loose and elegant updos, side-dos, or soft waves. Each can be created on a variety of different hair textures, always making sure to complement your individual facial features and lifestyle needs.”
I love tea…like 3 cups a tea love tea; but till I tried Pai-Shau I never considered it to be much benefit to my hair. Turns out Vietnamese women are on to something.

There’s nothing that will affect my mood quite the way the weather will. When it’s sunny, minor annoyances just roll off my shoulder; when it’s cold or stormy, I’m just PISSED.ALL.THE.TIME. To this day, I question how I survived four years at Cornell…though, truth be told, I didn’t go to class all that much because of my issues with the weather
I remember reading an article in the WSJ a few months ago about how the sales of yoga wear have zoomed, but the number of people actually doing yoga has stayed more or less stagnant (the article was called “Yoga Poseurs”). I thought it was pretty funny, but I can see how that has happened…
