If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian.

New York Fashion Week, Fall 2010: Funky, Chunky Haircolor

Cynthia+Rowley+fashion+week New York Fashion Week, Fall 2010: Funky, Chunky Haircolor

Backstage at New York Fashion Week, my girl Megan McIntyre (from Daily Makeover) recognized an emerging trend for fall 2010: funky, chunky haircolor.

“Looks like it’s time to break out the Manic Panic. The big beauty trend for hair at Fashion Week was bright, chunky streaks of color that brought to mind punk-inspired street style circa 1996. At the Cynthia Rowley Fall 2010 fashion show, Eva Scrivo for Wella Professionals custom colored hair extensions in shades of emerald, lapis, amethyst, navy and turquoise to replicate the rich jewel tones present in the collection. Each hair extension was completely saturated with professional salon haircolor and then woven into the hair and styled, creating an element of surprise and intrigue when models hit the runway.

fashion+week+vena+cava New York Fashion Week, Fall 2010: Funky, Chunky HaircolorSuper stylist Ted Gibson for beauty.com went for a version of the trend that was a little easier to DIY at the Vena Cava Fall 2010 fashion show (shown left). He used Streekers to color hair extensions in shades of hot pink, purple and green, then pulled them back into the models’ slightly mussed ponytails to give a “downtown, cool feel,” to the otherwise equestrian look.

We think this is one trend that just might hit the trifecta of translating in all three worlds: runway, red carpet and real world. This is the second season funky color has been featured at Fashion Week (the girls at the Spring 2010 Proenza Schouler fashion show rocked lovely lilac streaks) and Lady Gaga recently caused a stir at the Grammys with her own spin on the Crayola color trend. Adding a bright streak of color to your coif is an easy way to add a hip edge to your regularly scheduled hairstyle without a huge commitment. Now all you really have to decide is which happy hue you want to adorn your hair with.”

New Moon Star Gets Her Hair Twilighted

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Hair Color | Leave a comment
Christian+Serratos+twilights+1 New Moon Star Gets Her Hair TwilightedWell-known in the industry for his cutting-edge style, hairstylist Stuart Gavert was contacted to do the hair color for the cast of the major motion picture Twilight – including Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart!

Earlier this month, New Moon‘s own Christian Serratos (who plays Angela) visited the Gavert Atelier Salon and received her very own set of “twilights.”

Inspired by the movie and its stars, Gavert launched a concept of color on highlighting called twilights; the idea is to create highlights that can prolong visits to the salon for touch-ups (perfect for long months of filming) and to use a process that is not damaging to the hair.

For her day of beauty, the super sweet actress preferred pizza and Diet Coke for lunch and had a fun time being pampered.

Pastis: Breakfast of Beauty Champions

amber+nancy+jason+backe+daneen+pastis Pastis: Breakfast of Beauty ChampionsLast week while in town for New York Fashion Week, I shared a delish breakfast with beauty friends Amber, Nancy and my mane man, Jason Backe.

You might remember Jason from a post earlier this year, when the two of us hung out watching the Grammys – and he up and decided to dye my hair.

Jason is one of the most sought after colorists in New York, where he co-owns the Ted Gibson Salon. His list of celebrity clients (Anne Hathaway, Renée Zellweger, Amerie, Idina Menzel, Eltra Rossalini, and Lake Bell) reads like an issue of Us Magazine.

As if it’s even possible, Jason’s schedule book is about to get even more, well, booked. In the October 2009 issue of Allure Magazine, he was named “the best of the best.” If you’re in or passing through the NYC area, do yourself a favor and make an appointment. Get in where you fit in. Jason’s worth the wait.

Tis the season for going back to your roots.

Yesterday, Tyra let her real hair down on the fifth season premiere of her daytime talk show. Not to be outdone, Kim Kardashian said bye bye to blonde and returned to her naturally dark do.

I have to admit that I saw this coming. The lighter locks were just okay, but she is ten times more stunning as a raven-haired beauty. Shake what Kris Jenner gave you, Kim!

kim+kardashian+blonde+mario+dedivanovic+makeup Is Blonde Kim Kardashian Having More Fun With Makeup?

Kim Kardashian’s new blonde hair got me thinking about whether or not her makeup choices have changed. Is she using different hues to compliment her new do?

For the answer, I contacted my friend and Kim’s makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic. He told me, “Her makeup is not drastically different. We’re keeping in the warm tones for a softer look. Bronze skin, softer lashes, softer brows. Peachy tones. It’s so much fun doing her makeup as a blonde!”
