A Pink Phenomenon

I have a good friend who has not aged in about 20 years.  Literally.  If you compare a picture of her from high school and picture of her now, you would be hard pressed to decipher which one is current.  The secret?  I believe it’s all in the hair.  She has not changed her hair.  Ever.  Not once.  She has beautiful, long, naturally curly brown hair.  Except for those dark years in junior high when her hair was short and looked more like a poodle curled up on her head, her hair has been perpetually gorgeous.  (I will say there has been a few ...more

And then I became the sixth or seventh Kardashian.

So last night was my hair and makeup trial for the wedding, you guys, and apparently I’ve been doing hair and makeup wrong for pretty much, well, my whole life? Or at least from late teens onward. Before then, I think I pretty much nailed it.   Anyway, I learned quite a few tips and tricks, some that I’ll share with you all now because I’m altruistic like that. Here we go:  ...more

Hair accessories for every occasion

I love headbands and other hair accessories. I want to say it’s because of how cute and pretty they are and the wide range of choices now. However, it’s only really because hair accessories are fantastic at masking the fact that you may not be at your freshest.We all have these days (maybe some more than others). You wake up late, you realize you didn’t do laundry last night, and you have to be out the door in 20 minutes. Even if you can squeeze in time for a shower, we both know your hair is probably not going to be washed and it is definitely not going to be styled.This is when I turn to a hair accessory. To help make your lazy life easier, I’ve put together shopping guides of hair accessories for every occasion. Now, thanks to me, you can be glamorous and greasy! You’re welcome....more

Going Natural is a wonderful journey to take.  It's a personal one too that each woman must determine how she will go about doing it.  I get tired of many saying the journey is hard, long and full of pitfalls but honestly, isn't life?  I'm just feeling we need to be truthful about going Natural and taking care of our hair whether relaxed or Natural....more

let's talk hair

let me start off with saying i’m not the type of girl who’s really into hair and make-up products. i never really learned how to do that stuff, and am pretty super low maintenance when it comes to that. i rarely wear any make-up at all, and usually only do my hair for special occasions. i have been “that girl” at work who’s hair is always in a ponytail. but as i hit 30, i realized that i want to start being more “grown-up” and have started incorporating some things into my non-existent beauty regime....more

Women Need 2 Blow Dryers

It may sound crazy, but many women really need to own two hair dryers, according to many beauty experts.  The dryers with ionic technology, which are in almost every store now, work great if you want a smooth, sleek hairstyle, but not so much if your style is more about having great volume and body.  If you switch your style up, you really need both an ionic dryer and one that is not ionic. Some newer models have a switch to turn ions on and off, but they are a bit more pricey....more
