Rachel Bilson's Many Hairstyles… Which do you like best?

November 7, 2010

Rachel Bilson is no doubt a fashion icon. She’s brought back the Wayfarer trend and now she’s rockin’ two toned hair. Now usually when someone has two-toned hair its probably because they were too lazy to go back to their hairstylist and get their hair re-dyed. Hell… even Drew Barrymore has signed on to this trend. And, lucky for you frugal people who don’t want to do that — just leave your hair… it’s now a trend. So, now I’m going to throw it to you — Out of all her fab hairstyles, which is your favorite? Are you digging the new two-toned trend?

Two-Toned (Multi-colored) Hair…. ummmm

September 16, 2010

What do you think of this hair? I’ll tell you what I think. It looks lazy. It’s like they just don’t care about touching up their roots. I admit, I’ve been a victim to two-toned hair before, but mine was obviously done on purpose. Drew’s hair actually looked like she just let it grow out. I’m not sure this style will grow on me, but I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Sexy Tousled Beach Look? Yes, Please!

July 6, 2010

You ever come home from the beach with salt in your hair and have this amazing tousled look that only comes with a day lounging at the beach? Well, isn’t it a shame when you have to wash it out and your hair goes back to that limp, fine look that you started out with? Lucky for you, Bumble and Bumble makes a Surf Spray.

Great on people with thin, fine hair or people with minimal curl/waves that just want a little boost. This Surf Spray gives your hair that beachy, matte look and adds a lot of lift and volume. All you do is flip your hair spray some and scrunch and voila! You have that beach, sunkissed look. The only downside is that it’s pretty pricey for only 40z… a little over $20. But, if you use it sparingly, then it’s a great deal. It also gives you a medium hold without making your hair feel scrunchy.

And The Best Hair Award Goes To….

February 19, 2010

Rachel Bilson! Not only is her hair perfect, but those semi-curl/waves make it look so effortless. How does one get hair like that? A-mazing!

Runner up? Taylor Swift. Fabulous curls and no frizz… I would love to do this do, but sadly I have stick straight hair!

Mixed Chicks Hair Care…. a great find for everyone!

November 11, 2009

I ran into the found of Mixed Chicks, Kim, at my gym. I overheard her talking about her company so I asked her about it. First of all, Kim is wonderful and beautiful and has this hair care company that she told me about. Of course, I was dying to try it. After all, Halle Berry raves about this stuff! A couple weeks later, I got some hair products in the mail. Now, let me begin with saying that Mixed Chicks is typically made for people of mixed descent who have frizzy and unmanageable hair. I have straight, thin hair. So I gave some of the products to my cousin who has got very tight curls and my boyfriend whose hair looks like a brillo pad, to say the least. I did use some and I’m hooked, so this stuff, while made for curly haired people, is also great for people with thin – straight hair!

I tried the shampoo and deep conditioner. Let me say, I have stopped using all the organic product that I’ve sworn by in the past because this takes the cake. Why? The shampoo is super lathery and is a great deep clean. Plus, I love the smell- it smells like a fancy hair salon. Yes, that’s the best I can come up with!

The deep conditioner is a wonder. My hair is really long and usually I have to use TONS of conditioner to detangle and still my hair comes out in knots. This deep conditioner is so strong that you only need a dime size – literally – I am not kidding. It detangles and smells great. My own beef with this is that I wish it came in a squeeze bottle. I hate having to unscrew the tub every time.

I gave the leave in conditioner to my cousin as well as a sample set which included both of the above and the hair silk serum. She loves it all, and notes that the leave in conditioner is a bit thick, so you really have to work it in, but works wonders, nonetheless. And LADIES, the HIS MIX is perfect for your man. Same great smell as the Mixed Chicks for you. The best part is that you can use it too when you’re at his house!

Spaaaahhhh Week in NYC

October 8, 2009

One of the best things about NYC – besides the subways, dunkin donuts, Times Square, Central Park, East Village, Hot Dog Stands – is that they have Spa Week every year and all New Yorkers embrace it. It’s basically a week where a bunch of reputable spas around the city charge a mere $50 bucks for their top of the line treatments. You only pay $50 and get over a hundred dollars worth of relaxation.

I love Spa week because I really can’t afford to go on a regular basis, but for $50 bucks – what the heck! Plus they offer everything from Acupuncture, Facials, Swedish Massages and a ton more. For more information, check out this site Spaweek Guide which offers tips on how to spa, questions you might have if you’re a first timer and a list of places that are participating. Ahhhhhhhh…..
