New York Fashion Week Beauty Trend: The Low Ponytail

Here’s the problem with models’ hair during Fashion Week – it can be very distracting. If done well, a hairstyle can help strengthen a show’s theme, but even then, designers run the risk of having the audience leave saying, “Wow, the hair was gorgeous!” Obviously, that’s not the ideal takeaway for a fashion show, which […]

Celeb Trend: The Side Part

The Grammys are this Sunday, and while the new, more conservative clothing advisory is getting a lot of press, I’m more concerned with beauty.

Death of My Digital Perm and Return of Sleek

After nearly eight months of digital perm unruliness, I was ready for my hair to be smooth and sleek again. Don’t get me wrong. I love a good messy head of beach-y waves, but after all that perming and coloring the texture of my hair was almost like straw! I’ve done the Japanese thermal straightening […]

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.

Summer Hair for the Man Snob: A Close Call

After growing out my hair for the past year or so, I decided it was time to tame this bush growing on top of my head. Humidity and my hair are not friends, and I know it was time to clean up. After a strong recommendation by a friend to trust the artists at John […]
