Sachajuan Silver Shampoo and Conditioner

I’ve always heard that when it comes to hair products, despite being counter-intuitive, “silver” meant that a product has been formulated to fight grey hairs. Not so however with recently launched Sachajuan Silver Shampoo ($28) and Conditioner ($30), which has been designed specifically for people with my hair — blonde and highlighted. On a side […]

Ultimate Conditioning: Getting Out of a Hairy Situation

After months upon months of constant styling, my hair is not only tired from abuse, it’s loaded up with layers of product. When I realized the state of my strands, did I lay off and give them a break? Nope! But my hair did need help and after more deep conditioning, I felt like I […]

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! (my quest for perfect curls has run from stove irons to the Digital […]

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 […]

TopStyler by Instyler: Out with Iron, In with Clip

Twitter is my number-one go-to source for all things these days. The latest to catch my attention? I noticed my Twitter timeline was abuzz with a product called TopStyler, which curls hair using a special heated hair clips. Some people loved it, others not so much. Of course, I had to give it a whirl […]

Warren-Tricomi Tension Hair Brush: Some Healthy Tension

I love my stylist; he does such a good job blowing out my hair. I always try to learn his tricks when he does it, but the advantage I’ll never have? The leverage he gets from standing over me. Getting the right tension with the brush is key, but it’s not easy to do yourself. […]

Zoe Saldana by Mara Roszak: Zoe’s Louche Luxe Locks

When you are wearing glitzy, rock show-stopping, mini-meets-maxi Balmain, you’re hair has to be done in just the right measure of undone. Zoe rocked it, to say the least, at the Miami premiere of her new film “Colombiana” (in which she totally kicks ass). Her hair is loosened up and imperfect in the front, as […]
