Faux Bob Trend: Fake It ‘Till You Make It

Awards season is upon, so get ready for gorgeous gowns, clutches galore, and elaborately crafted hairstyles. We saw a lot of the faux bob last night (stay tuned for Golden Globe coverage).

Agadir Argan Oil Hair Treatment: Treat Yourself

This is one of the best Frugal Snob buys because even at a low cost, there’s no compromising. I’ve used treatment oils at every price point, and I can honestly say that Agadir takes the #1 spot. I bought it at the drugstore on a particularly bad hair day (my frizzy ends, as you can […]

Beachwaver Curling Iron: Life’s a Beach!

I LOVE this curler!!! The recently released Beachwaver works like a miracle. I broke my T3 curling iron in Florence (wrong wattage!) and was so sad because I loved that curling iron – it seemed to be the only thing that kept my hair curled. I kind of thought this would another gimmicky product; now […]

Best in Show: Whose Curls Won the SAG Awards?

The classy yet laid-back vibe of the SAG Awards introduced us to a softer side of celebrities. Instead of harsh (and sometimes contrived) updos, many opted for pretty, cascading curls – which brought a smile to my face. I’m all about curls!

Wrap Snap & Go! Comfort Hair Rollers: Whoa, Nellie!

Nasty Nellie Olsen (of “Little House on the Prairie” fame) was the meanest girl on the plains, but her perfect ringlets always fascinated me (turns out she wore a wig – no wonder). I still like pretty ringlet curls, but they are quite difficult to achieve with curling irons and hot curlers (clip-less rods produce […]

Stove Irons: Steel is the Word!

What does any normal girl do when she finds herself in K-town with an hour free before lunch at one of the best Korean restaurants in the world? Why, get a blow out at a Korean hair salon, of course! Well, at least that’s what I did.  Everything started out quite predictably. But after my […]
