Welcome to the first day of our month-long Latina Editor Beauty Road Test! Each editor has chosen a few beauty products and tools to put to the test, and will be writing about her results here. We’re trying everything from eye creams to self-tanners to at-home keratin straightening treatments, so check back often! And if there’s a product you’ve been curious about, let us know—we’ll be happy to give it a go for you. To kick-off the series, I decided to see if the TopStyler could really give me the retro waves all my favorite celebrities have been rocking on the red carpet.

After she died in a bodysurfing accident while vacationing in Mexico, this Brooklyn-based writer creates the most poignant and heartfelt novel about a mourning widower who narrates Aura’s life and how she transformed his.
