In order to celebrate 130 years of hair color innovation, haircare brand Wella Professionals is touring across the US this summer to educate and inspire women to discover their best hair color. This weekend (Sat 7/31 and Sun 8/1), the team of professional colorists will be making a stop at Old Orchard Mall in Chicago from 11am to 6pm.
During the event, you will get a free hair color consultation and a 25% off coupon for your next coloring service at any Wella-participating salon. The first person at the event to mention Makeup For Life will also get a $200 gift card to any of the participating salons.
Let’s face it. With the hectic schedule everyone’s got nowadays, having to wash, condition, blowdry and style your hair every day – especially when you have long Asian hair like I do – just seems pretty impossible. So how can you keep your hair clean and healthy without spending hours in the bathroom? I reached out to the folks at Ojon for help and a sample of their Rub-out Dry Cleanser landed on my doorstep.
Formulated with Amazonian White Clay, Silk Powder, Rice, Potato starches and Soap Bark Extract, the Rub-out Dry Cleanser lets you kill two birds with one stone by removing impurities, toxins, excess oils and product build-up while adding volume to your hair at the same time.
All you have to do is spray the product directly onto your hair and massage it into the scalp and from the roots to the ends. The process takes less than 5 minutes and every time I use it, my hair becomes instantly refreshed and lifted.
Happy new year everyone! 2009 was a tough year so I’m leaving all that behind and starting the new year with a haircut. I got 6 inches cut off (my hair feels *so* much lighter now!) and some layers added in. You guys likey?
I’ve added the list of products I’m wearing as requested:
Looking for ideas on how to do your hair for the holidays? Check out the following looks from Frederic Fekkai’s top celebrity stylist, Adir Abergel.
Look #1: Classic Updo
You can never go wrong with an updo. To get Kate Beckinsale’s look at the MOCA New 30th Anniversary Gala, start by blow drying the hair with a round brush and applying a hairpsray like Fekkai Full Blown Volume Lifting Hairspray at the roots to create some height. After blow drying, let the hair cool around rollers in order to maximize volume. Tease the top of the hair with a fine tooth comb to add height. Polish the sides of the hair using Fekkai Coiff Nonchalant Piecing & Forming Wax, pulling the hair into a tight ponytail just above the ear line. Finally, twist the ponytail and wrap it around an elastic band forming a doughnut shape and pin the pony into place. To secure the look, spray the hair with hairspray like Femme Fekkai Sensuelle Hair Spray.
Taylor Swift ditched her signature curls for a new sleek ‘do at NYC yesterday. Personally I love it but she looks so different to me I can barely recognize her! What do you ladies think?
