Sydne Summer Knows Scarves!

I’ll be the first to admit that when I’m at the mall, I usually just walk on by Wet Seal. Nine times out of ten, I’m in a rush to get to Forever 21, so I can fight a fourteen year old for a $4 pair of earrings.

But thanks to a tip for my girl Sydne, I’m starting to think that Wet Seal seals the deal on scarves. I mean, just check out this assortment…and right now, they’re 2 for $15!

Buy This Immediately: PhytoSpecific Extreme Shine Spray

I want you to listen very carefully. I’m only going to say this once. Open up your wallet and take out $26. Take said bills to Sephora and exchange them for PhytoSpecific’s Extreme Shine Spray. I don’t care if the kids gotta eat. Who cares if the electric bill is past due? This is imperative, people. PhytoSpecific Extreme Shine Spray will make your hair gleam so bright, you won’t need no stinkin’ lights!

As I’ve said before, my hair is the black hole of shine. Over the years, I’ve amassed an arsenal of shine serums, creams, and sprays to compensate for my mane’s embarrassing dullness. But while they imparted shine, it was always pretty apparent that the sheen was a result of product placement – and not good genetics.

Fortunately, and thanks to PhytoSpecific, I don’t have that problem anymore. Extreme Shine Spray subtly coats hair with botanical extracts without weighing it down. Exotic karanja oil nourishes and protects, while comforting chamomile and sage work to tone and impart dazzling radiance. It’s formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, petro-chemicals and phthalates; so it enriches the look and condition of your hair.

If you’ve got lackluster locks, you MUST invest in PhytoSpecific Extreme Shine Spray. Just a few sprays of this finishing mist will have you believing in miracles. You’ll be blinded by the shine, and bowled over at how believable and effortless it appears.

I am so excited by this product that I wish I could gift each and every one of you with a sample. That’s how amazing it is…I just wanna share the shine. If I had an Oprah-esque bank account, this is the point where my elves would emerge and pass out gift bags filled with my new favorite thing. I’d be all, “And you get an Extreme Shine Spray, and you get and an Extreme Shine Spray, and you get an Extreme Shine Spray.”

Unfortunately, I can’t roll like that…yet. So until the money train pulls into the Spoiled Pretty station, you’ll have to reach into your own wallet (bills be damned) and buy your own can.

The PhytoSpecific line is also sold at Beauty.com.

Bumble and bumble Partners with Rock Musical HAIR

Here’s a little something I bet you didn’t know about me: I’m a musical theater nut. Since I was cast as Gretl von Trapp in Merion Mercy Academy’s 1985 production of The Sound of Music, I’ve been passionate about plays… particularly ones where the cast spontaneous erupts into harmonized song and choreographed dance.

Needless to say, as a beauty buff and musical geek, I was very excited when the following email arrived in my inbox:

Last summer’s twice-extended, sold-out production of HAIR: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical, is moving to Broadway and Bumble and bumble is along for the ride, continuing their relationship with the show as its exclusive hair care partner.

As part of the relationship, Bumble and bumble granted Michael McDonald, Costume Designer for HAIR, full access to its services and products. McDonald said, “The 60s hippie hair never had it so good. With Bumble and bumble cut and color and their gentle shampoos and conditioners, “hippies” for the new millennium can get that natural look that never seems to go out of style.” Bumble and bumble stylists worked closely with McDonald to make sure the hair of HAIR remains true to its concept – locks with great natural texture, with a flower child edge.

Bumble and bumble editorial hairstylist Rolando Beauchamp, who has worked with Mary Kate Olsen, Kristen Davis and Christina Applegate, provides some styling tips for anyone who wants to get this loose, natural flower child look that’s great for spring:

For wavy or curly hair:
The key is keeping the hair’s natural texture, just helping it out with some product that gives it some support. Spritz Bb Surf Spray ($22) onto damp hair, and work about a quarter size amount of Bb Styling Creme ($23) into hair, mid-shaft to ends. The combination of Surf Spray and Styling Creme gives the right texture – a bit dry, not greasy. Dry with a diffuser or let air dry if it is warm out. The key is not to brush or comb out, just finger style and let it be free!

For straight hair:
Begin just like curly/wavy technique with Bb Surf Spray and Styling Creme, but you’ll need at waves to the hair. Using a 1 inch barrel curling iron, take 1 inch diameter sections of hair and roughly wrap the hair around the iron. The goal is to create bends and waves in the hair, not perfect curls. Then scrunch the section up and pin to the head. Continue curling sections, wrapping the hair in alternating directions, then scrunching and pinning the sections until the entire head is pinned up. Let the hair set for a few minutes, then undo sections. Don’t brush the sections out, just finger style.
