Bumble & bumble Launches Color Minded

I’ve been highlighting my hair since the fifth grade. I started off getting five or six highlights once a year and it slowly progressed to where, around the end of High School, I was getting a full head of highlights. Back when I started I could get away with highlighting my hair every six months, […]

Kerastase Cristalliste Collection for Long Hair

Finally something specifically designed for us ladies with long hair from Kerastase! For years I’ve been using the brand’s Oleo Relax Smoothing Masque which isn’t designed for my kind of hair (it’s for thick, coarse hair whereas I have thin, long hair), but it’s one of the few products that can make my knot-prone long […]

Ever since I started coloring my hair, I’ve become conscious of ingredients in my shampoos. Not for health reasons. It’s pure vanity.

Travel in Style: Oribe Beautiful Color Travel Set

I’m psyched about the coming weeks because I have three fun 3-5 day trips planned. First up I’ll be heading to Lenox to stay at Canyon Ranch. It was going to be an early birthday present to myself, but then my dad saw their website, noticed that it’s very close to Cranwell’s golf course, and […]

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 […]

Kérastase Fibre Architecte: Architect of Desire

You all know my preference for hair treatments by now: oil, oil, and more oil. All that oil leaves my hair soft and shiny, but there’s a downside: it makes it impossible to shampoo only twice a week (as I like to do).

Original & Mineral Launches Stateside

Some of the best things come from down under (beaches, kangaroos, accents…!), and we can now add Original & Mineral to that mix. Previously only sold in Australia and New Zealand, it’s an ammonia-free line of hair dyes and haircare products that quite honestly I was only curious to try because of their unique packaging. […]
