Curly Q's: Steal of the Month
By Sandra Mariscal | 05/20/2009 - 15:30

As promised, here is another bargain item that is curly hair approved: Citri Shine Color Prism Glossing Gelle, $4 at drugstores. This isn’t your traditional shine serum or oil. It’s actually a light gel consistency that leaves your curls shiny with nada de grasa! I tried this on my damp hair first and then on dry hair, and got non-crunchy, polished results each time.

Curly Qs: No More Drama
By Sandra Mariscal | 05/13/2009 - 13:45

Ladies, thank you so much for your helpful comments on my haircut drama a few weeks ago. My layered cut was drastically uneven from not maintaining it and I wasn’t sure what to do. Many of you weighed in on your layered cut likes and dislikes. I am a fan of layered curly hair for the oomph it adds. So after much thought, I asked my stylist to trim all my split ends and chop off the noticeable disparate lengths for a more flowing style.

Copy Her Coif: Paulina Rubio
By Angelique Serrano | 05/13/2009 - 10:20

This Golden Girl made a glam appearance at the 2009 Billboard Latin Music Awards held in Florida last month. Rubio traded her signature wild ‘n' curly mane for smooth retro waves, and those came courtesy of one of Hollywood’s hottest hairstylist, Mr. Ken Paves. The two are buddies, and thankfully he’s made it easy for us to get a little more familiar with his style.

Curly Qs: Root-Lifting Trick
By Sandra Mariscal | 05/06/2009 - 16:00

I learned a very cool trick at the Ouidad salon the other day. Ouidad is known for her curly hair expertise and amazing frizz-fighting products. At her salon in NYC, they use metal duckbill clips—those clips your stylist uses to hold your rollos—to lift your roots as your hair dries. This allows your roots to have a little volume and not be weighed down by your curls. I never thought these clips, which actually look like a duck’s beak, could be used as a volumizing tool!

Curly Qs: Haircut Drama
By Sandra Mariscal | 04/22/2009 - 11:30

I’m trying to let my hair grow. I had it shoulder-length short for several years and I’ve been craving long locks. Six months ago, I went to my stylist for my usual layered cut. But this time, I told her to just layer the top half, or crown, of my hair because I planned on letting it grow out. Now, the bottom half of my hair is really long and the top half looks noticeably shorter in comparison instead of an even cascading effect. Basically, my haircut is in an in-between stage.
