We’re guilty of sticking with the same hair cut for years—if it’s not broke, why fix it? But not everyone has our issue. Paulina, one of our amazing operations associates, is always eyeing new cuts and styles. She’ll be sharing her tress inspiration and tips every other week.
With January 1st right around the corner, many of us will undoubtedly be contemplating a hair re-do. (What better way to stride into a new year and season?) Whether you’re ready to chop off major inches or thinking about something more subtle, we have some inspiration for you. Behold, our forecast for 2013’s top three trends. From the looks of things, this year is all about embracing natural texture and bringing back graceful, feminine cuts.
Let’s bring back thick, playful fringes that showcase the face. It might mean a little upkeep but it’s a fresh change for spring. We love this style because it can be pulled off with longer lengths; as well as shoulder-length bobs.
I worked as a food editor for a few years, which was just as fun as it sounds. I ate ridiculous meals, chatted with up-and-coming chefs and drank a lot of delicious cocktails. These days, my eating and drinking habits still err on the gluttonous side, and are only exacerbated by the fact that New Yorkers seem to consider wine a food group. In a bid to reset my system and shake off lingering December sluggishness, I’ve decided to take a break from alcohol this month.
For many people, this may not seem like a big deal, but for me it’ll drastically alter my social life. Instead of ordering a Manhattan, I’ll be sipping on club soda. Instead of planning boozy dinner parties, I’ll have to invite friends for tea. But I have a game plan. I’m telling one person I know (including you!) to keep me honest. I’m going to stock up on artisanal syrups to make my club soda more interesting, and experiment with exciting alcohol-free cocktails.
That first glass of wine in February is going to be mind-blowing.

It’s only December 27th but we’re already thinking about how we’re going to detox in the new year. Our skin is easy - hello Naturopathica Pear Fig Enzyme Peel - but what about our tummies and minds? We’re thinking about giving Mark Bittman’s Vegan Til Dinner a go, combined with copious amounts of Mala Yoga, but this Bon Appetit Food-Lovers Cleanse is pretty tempting. Fresh, healthful ingredients, tasty preparations, lots of color and spice — if only we could work from home for two weeks!
How about you? Are you doing anything different in 2011, beauty, health, or wellness-wise?
