I can’t get enough volume in my hair. I sleep with it wet, make it all kinds of knotty and use hair spray like it’s my job, all to make my hair high. And those beachy Gisele-like waves? I live for them. And I just found a formula that makes them so easy to achieve: Redken Style Connection Wool Shake 08 (redken.com for retail salon locations).
At the Fall 2010 runway shows of designers Juan Carlos Obando and Narciso Rodriguez, there was something strangely absent from the faces of all their models: mascara.
To provide a cleaner, fresher and more modern look, eyelashes were—gasp!—left bare. They were merely curled beforehand for a subtle, yet feminine touch. What do you say chicas: Are you ready to drop your wands this fall and go for a more natural stare?
From backstage at the Carolina Herrera Fall 2010 fashion show – which was phenomenally full of furs, puffed sleeves and voluminous frocks – hairstylist to the stars Orlando Pita proclaimed he was over the overdone ‘dos that usually accompany most fancy dresses. “I would like to see people move forward,” he said.
The fall 2010 collection of designer Carlos Campos was inspired by three things: Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek in the film Desperado, mariachi, and the embellishments found on a Mexican sombrero. It was, as Campos put it, “a thank-you to Mexico; they’ve done so much for me and my career.” And what a thank-you it was! The inspiration played out quite literally in structured shoulders and neat tailoring, corbatin-style neck ties, and botonaduras adorning shorts and lapels.
I’m in such a lovey mood today, despite severe deadlines, temperatures and global issues. Sometimes you just get bitten by the love bug and become all Velveeta cheesiness and gooey sentiment. I can’t stop dreaming about clichéd Valentines, squishy hugs and good old-fashioned smoochin’! And naturally, the latter makes me think of lipstick.
I got engaged recently. Actually, I got engaged in August, but it still feels pretty recent. But the reality is, the wedding date is set for Sept. 3 and I’ve got to get my butt in gear. There are flowers to pick, cakes to taste, shoes to buy and, of course, hair and makeup to consider. I know a lot of girls start growing their hair out for their wedding…but I’m not sure why. Is it just a thing we do, almost involuntarily, like twirling our hair when flirting?
