Making the Cut: Going Long to Short with Curly Hair

Tuesday April 2, 2013 by Alexandra C.



5 years ago, in an act of what I can only hope was #YOLO inspired mania, I decided to let my friend Emily chop my long locks off into a chin length bob. I'm not sure what I was trying to prove. I'd like to plead temporary insanity, though I think it was more like a late teenage rebellion. A failed one at that. My mother and father couldn't have cared less. 

In any case, I...

Yay or Nay: Who Had The Best Celeb Hair Makeover This Week?

Monday April 1, 2013 by Alexandra C.



I love a good makeover and I love a good celeb hair makeover even more. I think it's because a new hairstyle can drastically change someone's look. Take Katy Perry's switch from her signature dark locks to her momentary ginger phase. Or, think of Miley's dramatic move from feminine and pretty to edgy punk with her major chop! 

There were three major celeb hair makeovers this...

Review of the Week: Shampoo (March 25-31)

Monday March 25, 2013 by Alexandra C.



I'm a lazy beauty junkie. So, I enjoy the lazy man's shower of dry shampoo and body spray. Plus, I'm a huge fan of trying to get away with unwashed hair for as long as possible. Hey, it's good for your hair and you can wake up 10 minutes later in the morning! It is necessary to wash your hair at least once in a while, though. Which is why I though it perfect to have a shampoo...

Yay or Nay: January Jones Does a Bouffant

Tuesday March 12, 2013 by Alexandra C.



The great thing about January Jones is that she's not afraid to play around with fashion and experiment with new styles. However as experiments may do, sometimes one goes awry. Hence January (and her hair) is the topic for this week's Yay or Nay. 

January Jones has done a bouffant-esque style before (see here), but she's gone a bit overboard with this one. 


We love the...

10 Wearable Hairstyle Trends: Spring 2013

Wednesday March 6, 2013 by Alexandra C.



Remember the other day when I challenged you chicks to shake up your beauty routine with one of the new beauty trends from the spring 2013 runway? 

Well, I'm about to up the ante. This time, we're talking hair. 

For the most part, I tend to only cut or dye my hair when my life has incurred some drastic change. Suddenly I think that it would be an amazing idea if I got bangs or...

The Best of NYFW Fall 2013 Beauty Trends

Tuesday February 19, 2013 by Alexandra C.



New York Fashion Week has once again come and gone in a whirlwind and left us with a heck of a lot of exhausted models and a ton of gorgeous beauty trends to inspire us. 

In fact, so many gorgeous trends that to go through every single one would probably leave us with a strong desire to never look at another eyeliner again. And that would be a shame (though maybe not for our wallets). So...

Retro Hair with Martin Lim and Vidal Sassoon at Montreal Fashion Week

Friday February 15, 2013 by Alexandra C.



I have a soft spot for 90's nostalgia, so when I heard that the iconic 90's hair styling company Vidal Sassoon was revamping and relaunching its classic line of haircare from the 90's, I was excited to get my Cher from Clueless hair flip on. 


Lucky for me, Vidal Sassoon was happy to let me check out their new collection. Plus, they showed me how they used the products to create a...

The beauty world is way too awesome right now! So much so, that I want to make a beeline for the nearest beauty counter and snap up one of everything.

To get you going, I have 5...

Review of the Week: Hair Colour (February 4-10)

Monday February 4, 2013 by Alexandra C.



Whenever I get into a beauty slump, the solution to get me out is to colour my hair. It might sound a bit odd, but there's something about new hair that puts me in a good mood. It's like seeing the world in a fresh new way. 

I recently changed from my subtle light brown highlights to a burgundy ombre and a week later, I went back to black! I love changing up my colour, but finding the...

Dry and Damaged Hair Care Routine

Thursday January 24, 2013 by Alexandra C.



About five years ago, on an idiotic whim, I let my inexperienced friend cut my long hair to about chin length. Since then, my hair has been on a downward spiral. After numerous dye jobs and bleaching blunders, my hair has become a straw like consistency and it is in rough shape, in all manners of the word. Since this bitterly cold weather has hit us, my hair has become even drier and more damaged...
