Get Your Hair Did

Saturday night was date night. These are my favorite nights. Sometimes they consist of just going to the local diner. Or my husband will cook a fantastic Italian dinner. But this time we were going out for a night on the town.Dinner in NYC.A friend's apartment warming party downtown.I was excited.Normally, when we are going out on a Saturday night, I have a whole process. I get my nails done, I go shopping. And if it's a special occasion, I'll even blow dry my hair. (More on this another time.)...more

Striking oil (for your hair that is!)

Oil is the newest rage. Just when we thought oil made our skin prone to breakouts or our hair greasy, the assumptions are quite untrue. There is a new batch of oils popping up in boutiques and shops like Sephora, each touting different blends or benefits. Made of botanical and aromatic essential oils, not only are they made to nourish hair, but different blends and brands are for adding shine, hot weather or blow-dry repair and de-frizzing unruly, damaged hair.Using hair oil as a conditioning treatment: ...more

The Long and the Short of It — Hair, That Is

Trimming your tresses will prompt his soul to shatter into a thousand little hair sized shards on the salon floor?Well ladies (and gents, if that's how you roll) I have been staging a cold war against R on this for a while now and I am willing to share my battle plans and tactics for I think that I am finally breaking him.

Cut It Out: Keeping Your Hair Young

I seem to be going on and on about hair, but it is such an important aspect of our appearance and, I think, a reflection of how we feel. So, here are just a few more tips and comments about hair that I think are important in the grand scheme of keeping our hair – and ourselves – looking young. 1.No razor cut around the ears, no ears cut out period. We need hair around the face to soften our overall appearance. The hair around the face should also be feathered or ‘wispy’ and uneven, rather than hacked off in a straight line....more

No Young Hair Here

My blog (24 In My Mind)  is about how the over-40 woman can still remain 'youthful' looking, and one of the things I talk alot about is getting the right haircut, a 'young' (with limits, of course) hairstyle.  I offer some rules for signs that a hair salon is NOT one where you will get a 'young' hairstyle. Here are those signs: 1. The name of the salon has the word “Beauty” in it.  Bad sign.  (One-word name salons are typically your best bet, followed by salons named for a guy.)   2....more
