Best Conditioners: Search and Restore

I’m not very picky about shampoo; as long as it cleans my scalp and hair, I’m good! Conditioner, on the other hand…that I’m choosy about. I don’t like mine to be too heavy or stocked with chemicals (the latter of which should go without saying, but for many brands, it doesn’t).

Newfangled Bangs in Milan

Bangs (whether long, fringe, or short and choppy) were big on the runways in New York, London and Milan this season, but leave it to Prada to come out with a unique take – side bangs. The look was aptly conceived to be “simple but extreme,” according to hairstylist extraordinaire Guido Palau.

The London Fashion Week Look You Have to See

The London Fashion Week Look You Have to See

It’s hard to believe that there’s a real model under all this makeup…but there is! Gareth Pugh is no stranger to envelope-pushing beauty, but this is particularly stunning.

A Unique Runway Ponytail You Could Rock From Day to Night (and to the Gym!)

It’s not often that we see a truly unique look on a runway these days (putting aside clownish, over-the-top beauty and hair styles that no one would wear in real life). Public School managed to show one that was fresh, easy to re-create and versatile enough to wear day to night.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo

Forget that Jennifer Aniston is involved; the reason I trust Living Proof blindly is that all of their products were developed by scientists, meaning they put function first and foremost. These must work!! True to that, I have yet to try anything from them that I don’t love…

Klorane Shampoo & Conditioning Balm: Natural Born Cleaners

If you have great hair, all you need is a pair of sunglasses and your favorite bag to feel put-together when you step out the door. Proper brushing plays a part in this, but products do too and it’s always best to go the natural route here.

You May be Brushing Your Hair the Wrong Way

We’ve been brushing our hair all our lives…but have we been doing it the right way? Minimizing time spent getting ready is a goal we all have, but quickly brushing out the tangles is the bare minimum you can do for your locks.
