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. Back when I started I could get away with highlighting my hair every six months, […]

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 […]

Paul Mitchell INKWORKS: Are Cotton-Candy Streaks To Dye For?

Proenza Schouler gave their runway a pastel tint, so to speak, back in 2010. Then Ashley Olsen was among the first, followed by Kate Bosworth, and then January Jones, among others: shifting their hair into punk-meets-pretty territory with cotton-candy streaks. Whether they’ve committed to Smurfette tips or tried just a taste with a baby-pink highlight, […]

Today’s Hair Trend: Add a Pop of Color

The Pop Of Color (POC) process is not to be confused with “chunking” of hair; rather, it’s a play on highlights and lowlights. Hmmm, sounds like another hair trend that will surely be abused in real life, thanks to colorful Katy Perry and various Sesame Street characters. But if done subtly (read: color options not […]

Top Buns: Riding High

So how do we feel about the super-high bun, a.k.a. the donut bun? For me, it depends who is donning it and how it’s been styled. Too tight and severe, and you’ll look like an off-duty ballerina who’s missing her legwarmers. Too sloppy and wispy, and you’ll look like you just sauntered out of bed […]

Top 5 Favorites: Fashion Week Hair

New York Fashion Week may be over, but the hairstyles live on! From enchanting updos to tousled manes to super-slick ponytails to laid-back buns, the mood for the Fall season is loose and carefree – the best ‘dos weren’t overly done. Here are my top picks: 1) Vera Wang: Frederic Fekkai’s Paul Hanlon delivered windblown updos, […]

Redken All Soft Heavy Cream: Trying a Softer Approach

I don’t have the softest hair. In fact, my husband once compared it to hay (isn’t that sweet?). I was running my fingers through his hair and said, “Your hair is so soft.” He did the same with mine and responded, “Yours feel like hay.” Romantic is his middle name. Not that I’m reacting to […]

Mane of the Week: Who Has the Best Hair?

It’s time for a little week in review, hair snob-style. It’s time to determine which lady-of-the-public eye flaunted your favorite locks. From Rihanna’s explosive girls (I’m just glad she’s got rid of the red menace!) to Bar Refaeli’s California beach babe-style waves at the Dior Couture show to Emmy Rossum’s classic blowout at an appearance […]
