Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

Are You There Hair Weave? It’s Me, Short Hair.

Hair+Weave+2 Are You There Hair Weave? Its Me, Short Hair.

Have you ever been walking down the street and seen hair weave just discarded on the sidewalk? I don’t know if this is something inherent to Philadelphia, or if there are rogue extensions littering the streets of America. But I just had to post these hilarious pics of weave remnants on the pavement near my apartment.

A few weeks ago while on a walk with Mr. Spoiled Pretty, we came across not one…not two…but three pieces of weave on the sidewalk. It was as if Hansel and Gretel left a trail of tracks so they could find their way back to the hair salon.

I’d love to know how these hair weaves end up homeless. Thoughts?

Don’t Hate. Appreciate. Oprah’s Hair is 100% Hers!

oprah+natural+hair Dont Hate. Appreciate. Oprahs Hair is 100% Hers!Ever since Oprah started styling her hair in a sleek blowout, people have been wondering if her mane was unbeweavable.

Well, the big O set the record straight on Friday’s eppy of her talk show:

“Am I wearing a weave? Everybody’s like, ‘Oprah, we love your weave.’ This is not a weave, this is my hair.” And to prove that she speaks the truf, Oprah shared this photo of her mane in all of it’s natual glory. “This is what my hair looks like. This is me before it gets pressed and curled in the morning,” she continued.

Gail’s response? “Yowza!”

Worst Hair On Television

kim+z Worst Hair On Television
The title of Worst Hair on TV once belonged to Kim (above) from Real Housewives of Atlanta. But to be honest, I don’t think the term hair adequately describes the bargain basement wig she has affixed to her head.

momma%27s+boys+michelle Worst Hair On TelevisionThus, I think the torch should be passed to Michelle from Momma’s Boys.

Somehow, this child has racked up $130,000 worth of debt buying a new nose, Botox, breast implants, lip injections, obvious extensions and all the hooker-esque clothes she could find at Frederick’s of Hollywood. So sad.

Rent Hair Extensions?!?! Unbeweaveable!

Posted on by daneen in Extensions, Hair, Hair Styling | 4 Comments

Warren Tricomi salons have a new rent-an-extension service. For $100, a stylist will color-select, apply, and style human hair clip in extensions. You can be Cinderella (or Rapunzel) for the night, then return the extensions the next day – so they can be sanitized for the next customer. If you decide to rock the long locks for more than 24 hours, it’s $100 per day – and if you decide to keep them, the final cost will have a deduction from the time you rented them.

Or for half the price, you could make your own extensions – and wear them as many times as you’d like. Hell, you could be Cinderella every day…never worrying about the clock striking midnight and your weave turning back into a pumpkin. Here’s how. You’ll need:

packages+of+wefted+hair Rent Hair Extensions?!?! Unbeweaveable!

One package of wefted human hair
Basically, it’s a track of hair that can be cut into smaller strips. Be sure to buy human hair because, unlike synthetic, it can be styled with thermal tools. Human hair can also be washed with shampoo, which will extend the life of your extensions. I also recommend going to a beauty supply store to purchase the hair – as opposed to buying online. This way, you’re guaranteed to get hair that more closely matches your own hair color. If you’re confused, ask for a salesperson’s assistance.

wig+clips Rent Hair Extensions?!?! Unbeweaveable!

A few packages of wig clips
These usually come in packs of 2 or more. I typically use 2-3 small wig clips per hair extension, depending on the width of the extension. My recommendation is to buy more than you think you need, because they’re pretty inexpensive and it’s always better to have more than to come up short. If you have light hair, buy wig clips that will easily blend with your hair color. If your hair is dark, you can get away with the standard black wig clips.

A spool of thread
The color should match the color of the hair.

A sewing needle

Step one: Cut the hair wefts into strips. I like to trim them in various widths, so that the end result looks more real. Here’s a good recipe:

Six to eight strips that are 2” in width
Four to six strips that are 3” in width
Four to six strips that are 4” in width
Three strips that are 6” in width
Two strips that are 8” in width

weft+with+clips Rent Hair Extensions?!?! Unbeweaveable!

Step two: Once you’ve cut your strips, take your needle and thread and sew on the wig clips. The comb side should be facing out, and the teeth should be pointing down. A good rule of thumb: the 2, 3, and 4” strips need two wig clips – one on either end. The 6 and 8” strips need three wig clips; one on either end and one to anchor the middle.

Step three: Once you’re finished sewing, you’re done. Clip those babies in, put on your cutest outfit, and go git your Prince Charming.
