Last 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.
Check out Jason’s blog on Daily Makeover and follow my mane man on Twitter.
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’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!”

Kim Kardashian is a blonde. And unlike last time, it’s not a publicity stunt (okay, maybe it is) or some belated April Fools joke. This time around, it’s for real for real. She writes on her blog:
This time it’s for real, guys! I went blonde!!! I had been considering it ever since I wore that blonde wig, and I just decided to go for it!! What do you think? I am really loving it! My hairstylist Clyde Haygood orchestrated the whole thing and Rebecca from Goodform salon dyed it! I’m debuting my new look at the Teen Choice Awards tonight!
Anyone else here a fan of HBO’s True Blood
? If you happened to catch the season 2 premiere episode, “Nothing But the Blood,” you probably noticed that Eric made an appearance with foils in his hair.
I kinda like that they didn’t address or try to explain Eric’s tin foil situation…so I’m forced to invent my own back story. Like maybe Eric thought he’d get some torture and bloodsucking in while his hair color was processing.
The other day, I posted some photos of Twilight star Kristen Stewart’s new cropped, black coiff.
In those pics, her hair was pulled back and she seemed a little camera shy about revealing her new short cut.
But today, Kristen let her hair down – proudly rocking her Joan Jett inspired shag/mullet. It also appears that she’s embracing the role through her wardrobe.
For her upcoming role as Joan Jett in The Runaways (yeah…Philly in the house!), Twilight star Kristen Stewart chopped her locks and dyed ‘em black.
Rumor has it that filming for Eclipse, the third installment in the Twilight saga, will begin in August 2009. Kristen’s hair, obviously, won’t be back to its normal length by then – so I’m waiting to see how the hair team plans to remedy this conundrum.

Did you know that Leighton Meester was a blonde before auditioning for Gossip Girl? She dyed her hair before scoring the career-launching role of Blair Waldorf, Queen Bee of NYC’s Upper East Side. “That’s a big deal but I’m glad I did”, Leighton once said.
But, from the looks of these recent pics, Leighton has gone back to her roots.
So how do we like our beloved Blair as a blonde?

Today, Kim Kardashian unveiled a new hair color via Twitter. Though Kim referred to her new shade as “blonde,” it’s obvious from the Twitpics that her hair is actually a caramel-y light brown.
I love me some Kim, but I can’t get behind this hair. Her dark mane was so glossy and lush. If genetics had blessed me with that hair, I’d never do a damn thing to it. I’d just shake what my momma gave me.
What do you think about Kim’s new do?
