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 […]

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 […]

Frugal Snob: Whole Foods Beauty

When it comes to shopping for beauty products Whole Foods might be one of the most overlooked resources. I for one am in a Whole Foods almost every week and the beauty section ususally doesn’t register in my head till I’m on line to pay and see it out of the corner of my eye! […]

Messy Waves at the MTV Movie Awards: The Ripple Effect

Loose, uncoiled, rippling tendrils gave Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone, and Gabriella Wilde all an easy, careless allure ideal for an event such as this. […]
