Read on to find out some of Spring/Summer 2013’s latest hair trends!

The Bun

The bun hairstyle is one of the best for Spring/Summer 2013. This season, it’s all about the intricacy of the bun, with knots added into the style to give it new dimension. Go for a combination of chignon and ballerina bun when creating your style to ensure you get a catwalk-ready look.

The Braid

Braids manage to appear incredibly complex while actually being deceptively simple. Have a go at recreating Jason Wu’s French braid (pictured), or braid sections of hair to create an equally stunning style. At Hershesons, you can buy braided headbands that can give you this look without any effort on your part whatsoever.

The Low Pony

The ponytails seen on the catwalk for the Spring/Summer 2013 season take this style to the next level. With the use of some of the simplest hair accessories available, you can style an ultra-low ponytail just like the ones seen at Michael Kors (pictured).

Waves

Gentle wavy hair conveys a sense of femininity and style. Whether your hair is naturally wavy or you use styling products to achieve this look, make sure the end result produces tumbling curls and gentle waves. You could use a heated curling iron when creating this style.

Accessories

Hair accessories are set to be more important than ever in 2013, and if Chanel’s recent creation (pictured) is anything to go by, your accessories should be as opulent as possible. Of course, you’ll still need your old favorites to do the behind-the-scenes work, so you should keep a good stash of elastics, pins and hairbands at the ready.

Hairstylist: Lorenzo Martin

Inspiration: Going into the night, Lorenzo was inspired by Old Hollywood to create a look that would complement Jennifer’s captivating Zuhair Murad gown. Lorenzo turned to a deep side part to modernize the Old Hollywood look of the romantic waves.

Step 1: Lorenzo prepped Jennifer’s hair with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Triple Resist Shampoo and Conditioner ($4.99 each). Then while hair was wet, Lorenzo used the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Triple Resist Ultimate Strength Solution ($6.99) to reinforce the hair prior to styling.

Step 2: Lorenzo applied a quarter size amount of L’Oréal Paris EverCurl Sculpt & Hold Cream-Gel ($8.99) to condition the hair and prep it for being curled.

Step 3: Curled using a 1-inch curling iron and then gently sprayed L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Texture Series Beach Spray ($6.99) to each section helping to hold the curl and add texture.

Step 4: For each curl created, Lorenzo pinned the curl Continue reading

NYFW Spring/Summer 2014 Hairstyle Trends: Loose Waves, Side Parts, Big Ponytails, Tangled Braids: Best Looks

The Spring/Summer 2014 season can’t come soon enough! Healthy, shiny and wavy hair with a side part made us think of Italian actresses from the ’40s at Narciso Rodriguez. Tousled and unkept beachy waves gave a new meaning to the term “bedhead” at Prabal Gurung and FALLON. Read on to learn how to get these […]

Gluten-Free Products

Last week, I started hearing a lot of buzz about gluten-free this and gluten-free that.  So I just wanted to write a post about what is “gluten-free”.  From a marketing standpoint, gluten-free is used to target a specific segment (those with celiac disease).  Without going into a lot of details, celiac disease is a condition that damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing parts of food. The damage is due to a reaction to eating gluten, a protein that is found in wheat, barley, rye, and maybe oats, etc.  There are a lot of substitutes and gluten-free grains out there (see here for a list).

That being said, were you also under the assumption that gluten-free products only make sense if these products are INGESTED?  As in:  they have to be consumed through your digestive tract in order for it to be an issue!  Why, then, do I see so many cosmetics and personal care products being branded as “gluten-free”?  Does that really matter?  Unless I’m eating my makeup and lotions (okay, so maybe some lipsticks/lipbalms make their way to your stomach…the amount should be insignificant anyway), how is normal absorption through the skin suppose to give you celiac disease symptoms?  Are people just too cautious?  Maybe I’m just not getting it because I’m not a sufferer.  But I’m here to help, so here are three skin products that are gluten-free:

  1. AminoGenesis Simply One 10 in 1 Skin Perfecting Treatment (although I’m not sure if their Vitamin E and Glucosamine come from plants/algae source, at least they’re GF!)
  2. KaplanMD Clinical Skin Therapy
  3. Pangea Organics Egyptian Calendula & Blood Orange Facial CleanserImage
