This holiday beauty gift pick is for that follicularly challenged chick in your life. We all have that relative or friend whose hair is so dry, damaged or downright ratnesty that we’re compelled to help. So this holiday season, instead of hooking her up with a cute hat, buy her the Best Tressed Hair Set from Carol’s Daughter.
Like the right pair of shoes, a hairdo can make or break your outfit. Starting off with gently-cleansing Rosemary Mint Shampoo with Sea Moss for dry hair is a wise choice. Layer in moisture with Black Vanilla Leave-in Conditioner. Hair Milk, a light solution for brittle hair, adds luster with the help of lemongrass and ylang-ylang. The essential oils of sage and rosemary in Lisa’s Hair Elixir help combat dry hair and scalp while peppermint gives a refreshing tingle. Mimosa Hair Honey, an herbal-infused pomade, improves manageability and tames fly-aways so that the only thing catching anyone’s eye is your gorgeous hair!
I just tried Carol’s Daughter hair products tonight, for the first time. And let me tell you…they are just as awesome as everything you’ve heard. I’m extremely embarrassed to be so tardy for the Carol’s Daughter hair party; so I’m not just jumping on the bandwagon – I’m getting behind the wheel, y’all. After using the products in the Best Tressed Hair Set, my mane (which is usually the black hole of moisture and shine) is soft, shiny, wonderfully fragranced and feels so darn healthy that I’m in a state of shock.
What’s even more amazing is the fact that these products are all natural – free of the harsh chemicals that jacked up your hair in the first place. “I wanted lots of moisture and no synthetic preservatives,” says creator Lisa Price. “If I couldn’t pronounce the ingredient, it wasn’t going into the pot.”
Give your little princess the royal treatment with The Beauty Within Shampoo, which gently cleans as it conditions. Ultra nourishing Aloe Leaf Juice will pamper each strand, leaving hair silky-soft and tangle-free.
For shiny, silky-soft hair befitting all princesses, Inner Shine Conditioner is worth its weight in gold. Shine boosting trio Sunflower Seed, Olive and Sweet Almond Oils leave hair feeling soft, while helping tame tangles for good.
At long last, tangle-free hair is only a spray away. Dream Big Hair Detangler is a moisturizing miracle worker that gently detangles hair without any tears as it smoothes and nourishes with Cranberry and Lemon Peel Extracts. No pulling, breaking or damaging, so strands stay supple, soft and shiny. Dreams really do come true.
Make a splash with bubbles that last with Sharing Means Caring Bubble Bath. All princesses would approve this bath treat that gently cleans and calms delicate skin with moisturizing Aloe Leaf Juice. It’s the perfect cleansing companion and best when shared with bath-time friends.
This week, Kourtney Kardashian was spied getting her extensions touched up. Now, don’t get it twisted…I am not hating on Kourtney for wearing a weave. In fact, I’ve been known to don them from time to time. I just felt the need to share these pics to show that even gorgeous reality stars sometimes need a little faux hair help.

Last week while in New York City for Fashion Week, I ran into celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic in Bryant Park. Sweetie that he is, Mario introduced me to the man responsible for Kim Kardashian‘s fierce Fashion Week hairstyles.
Lucky for you, I had my Flipcam (along with 10,000 of my other worldy possessions) in my purse – so I conducted an impromptu interview. Watch as Rolando Beauchamp shares how to steal Lil Kimmy’s (my new nickname for her) Fashion Week hairstyles. Enjoy!

For the 2009 Emmy Awards, celebrity hairstylist Renato Campora was inspired by the modernity and elegance of Blake Lively‘s red Versace gown. He created a goddess style, braided updo using products by Frederic Fekkai.
2009 Emmy Awards nominee Heidi Klum walked the red carpet in a Marchesa gown, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, hair styled by Michel Aleman for Frederic Fekkai and make-up designed by Linda Hay.
Michel created a 50s inspired updo with a modern interpretation – ultra feminine with a bit of volume. To get the look he crafted soft texture with slight waves pulled back to softly frame the face. A strong middle part was accented by a chignon positioned back of the head at ear level. Michel started off by applying Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel to create some texture and then blow-dried the hair. Once dry, he applied Fekkai Coiff Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray to create the soft waves. He created a middle part and two pony tails in the back of the head at ear level, making sure the hair in front is smooth but pulled back softly. He teased each ponytail to create the volume and then brought together into one dramatic chignon. Michel finished off with the .
The simplicity of Heidi’s gown inspired Linda Hay to keep her makeup minimal and fresh. She used a palette of pale pinks and apricots for her eyes and cheeks. To begin Hay used Brightener around her eyes, nose, and the corners of the mouth, blending everywhere to even out Heidi’s complexion. She followed this with a very light touch of cream powder blush on the cheeks.
On the eyes Hay used a selection of pale pink and lavender shadow’s from Victoria’s Secret, applying the pale pink to the lid using a flat shadow brush, lavender in the crease using a pointed shadow brush and a silver to highlight just under the eyebrow. Under the eye Hay applied a touch of lavender using a small pointed shadow brush and then added a touch of silver to the inside corner of the eye to make it pop. Next she curled the lashes + applied 3 layers of Black Mascara to the top and bottom. Individual lashes were applied to the outside corners to make the eyes pop. The lips were lined with a nude lip liner then painted with a beige lipstick. She finished off Heidi’s look with Victoria’s Secret Body Perfecting Spray to make her skin glow.
