Reading List: Happy Memorial Day!

Happy 3-day weekend! Even though you should really be outside enjoying the weather this weekend, we do have some amazing links for you…just in case you’re stuck inside and need to catch up on your reading. 

  • First up, Stylist has coverage from the FiFi awards (aka the Oscars of fragrance), which took place yesterday. Among the award winners were Mary J Blige, Fergie, and Halle Berry, who took home the first Elizabeth Taylor Fragrance Celebrity of the Year award.

  • This week we discovered a new Tumblr and website that are have both quickly become new faves. Fashionista introduced us to Burgers and Nails, a Tumblr that’s exactly what it sounds like- pictures of burgers and nails. In a word: awesome. Actress/musician Zooey Deschanel, producer Sophia Rossi and writer/Internet sensation Molly McAleer also launched a new site this week called Hello Giggles and we’re hooked. It’s basically a hub of all things cute. 
  • WWD has a great little feature today about Laurice Rahme, the founder of Bond No. 9, the fragrance company, which despite having a tiny budget, has become the number one seller at Saks Fifth Avenue.
  • And finally, just for fun- BellaSugar has pictures from Lady Gaga’s elaborate costume changes during her Good Morning America concert. We’re thinking our next video tutorial might have to be “How To: Talon Shaped Nails.”

Have a great weekend!

Hair Stylist Secret: Dirt

I know I’m only supposed to wash my hair every other day. Every hair stylist I’ve gone to (not to mention Katia, Hayley, and Thanh) lecture me on the values of letting your hair generate its natural oils in between shampoos. But I just can’t get on board with it - that is, unless I’m at the beach, in which case I’m happy to be a salt-crusted mermaid for days on end.

Despite my daily wash addiction, I love the look of second-day hair: piecey, slightly textured, and smooth. During my last hair cut, my fab stylist told me how I can get the dirty hair look without skipping suds: Jonathan’s Dirt Texturizing Paste, a water-based product that you can work through damp or dry hair to give it that slightly lived in feel. Perfect for that messy updo that I’ve been meaning to try…
