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

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name

We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

Luckily, Frédéric Fekkai feels the pain of hair-obsessed ladies living in a rain ravaged world.

For a limited time, they’ll be offering complimentary umbrellas to all salon patrons who brave the rain for any hair service. The umbrellas are free for those clients receiving treatments, and ten dollars for all other customers.

Oscars7 The Curious Case of Taraji P. Hensons Hair

Back in the days of the 2009 Oscars and Independent Spirit Awards, I had a serious thing for Taraji P. Henson’s hair. So when she showed up to the MTV Movie Awards rocking a Jenny Humphrey mullet, I was all, “Oh no she didn’t kick ole Bob to the curb!”

But I have to admit that her new edgy do is growing on me.

And how does she get her hair to shine like the top of the Chrysler Building? I wouldn’t be surprised if her secret shine weapon was Moroccanoil Gold Glimmer Shine. That spray is beyond compare!

Cameron Diaz Did NOT Pull A Britney For My Sister’s Keeper

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Hair, Haircut | Leave a comment

cameron+diaz Cameron Diaz Did NOT Pull A Britney For My Sisters KeeperIn her latest film, My Sister’s Keeper, Cameron Diaz plays the mother of a girl battling leukemia. In a particularly poignant scene, her character shaves her locks in an act of solidarity with her eldest daughter. But don’t be fooled. Cammie didn’t actually pull a Britney. It was just a wig cap and some clever movie magic.

She tells Metro newspaper, “If I shaved my head and my hair was this long right now, they would have me in a lab somewhere. Kerastase or L’Oreal would have already taken me somewhere.”

robert+pattinson Why Should Robert Pattinson Have All The Fun?I had such a blast messing around on Daily Makeover and photoshopping different celebrity styles onto Robert Pattinson, I decided Kristen Stewart needed a Twilight-inspired virtual makeover.

What would Kristen look like if she traded tresses with her New Moon co-stars? No need to guess; I’ve painted you some pictures. Consider this a companion piece to the previous post.

Robert Pattinson: Is His Hotness In The Hair?

Posted on by daneen in Hair, Haircut | Leave a comment

robert pattinson Robert Pattinson: Is His Hotness In The Hair?Robert Pattinson is famous, first, for his breakout role in the movie Twilight. Second, he’s known for his matted mane.

This hirsute heartthrob incites riots. 10-year-olds beg to be bitten. And crazed fans flock him, resulting in run-ins with New York City cabs.

Just when discussion of Zac Efron’s carefully constructed coiff hit a fever pitch, talk of Rob’s tousled, borderline ratnesty do monopolized the conversation. Much of the articles written about Robert reference his signature style, which begs the question: Is Robert Pattinson’s hotness in his hair?

With the help of Daily Makeover’s Makover Studio, I’ve photoshopped some other celebrity hairstyles onto Rob’s noggin. You decide…hot or not?
