“I had fun glamming Kim up for her Vegas birthday,” he said. “I did her makeup that night while she was laying down on this big, comfortable spa table/reclining chair and it was actually great doing makeup that way. It’s more exciting when they can’t see what I’m doing the whole time because they get surprised at the end.” (more…)

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.”
Well-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.
Serratos added in some pieces to lengthen her “lob” for Monday’s premiere of New Moon.

Besides their razor sharp fangs, vampires’ greatest weapon is their stunning appearance. Glistening skin, blood-red lips, sultry eyes and a barely there flush perfectly play innocence against danger – and what girl wouldn’t want to harness that Twilight-inspired spirit?
