Celebrity hairstylist and founder of Kronos Hair products, Dusty Simington, has a rather interesting beauty philosophy that reminds me of a saying by Helena Rubinstein – “There are no ugly women, only lazy ones.” Dusty believes that “With all that information and technology out there, no one can look bad. People who do are simply stupid.” While some people might find that harsh, I think there is some truth to it.

I met Dusty at the Total Beauty Blog Summit 2008 where he gave us a brief introduction on his upcoming line of hair products and a few pointers for fall hair trends. I also pulled him aside for a quick interview just for you guys!

Last weekend, I attended Total Beauty’s very first Blog Summit in Los Angeles. I had a total blast and it was so great to finally meet the awesome Total Beauty team and all my fellow beauty bloggers. The 3 day event was jam-packed with tips from makeup, hair and skincare pros, advice from blogging and pr experts, makeovers and lots more. Read on for more pics and a brief recap!
