!! DISCOBALLSINHAIR !!
Backstage with Hood by Air #NYFW. Hands down the most interesting backstage scene I have yet to see. Hair stylist Amy Farid worked with Bumble and Bumble to create four looks - the wedding look, the Venus and Serena look, the Forest Gump look and the grunge dreadlocks look.
You can guess which one inspired look above.
The looks are an extension of what Hood by Air represents - a unisex nation. The notion that there is nothing women can’t do that men can do and vise versa.
Quite the statement, but they caught my attention.
And.. the disco balls are just re-dic.

Braids to-tha-FLOOR at Mara Hoffman this morning #NYFW.
This look was created c/o Hoffman and CATWALK by TIGI Creative Director Nick Irwin. The Hoffman SS’14 collection draws inspiration from color, light, happiness, and ultimately rainbows (awesome). Irwin and Hoffman came up with this braided look that allows movement but is fiercely polished from the front. Heavy emphasis on the perfection of the braid, the rainbow inspired fabric wrap, and the daring middle part that every girl wore. (Aside from the 3 that had shaved heads, because their faces were that brilliant.)
Currently browsing the ‘How To’ section of this press release… I want these hairz.

emalina1unca asked you:
I got a really unfortunate haircut a while back and I’m wanting to grow it out quickly. I’ve tried all these oils and shampoos and vitamins but nothing is really helping. Plus, my hair is in the awkward phase where it doesn’t want to grow. Do you know any “miracle products” for hair growth?
Well, there are probably no real miracles in hair growth BUT … I was lunching with a certain beauty guru/blogging genius I know, whose identity I will protect since I’m quoting her on her personal use of a product. She told me she used the ultimate cult hair growth product, Viviscal, and had great results. She described sitting with her hairdresser remarking on the “bed of soft moss” growing on her head — the regrowth of new hair coming in at the roots. Ch-ch-ch-chia!
That was pretty much enough for me to try it. (It had previously been recommended to me by the team at Sally Hershberger no less - but still I had my hesitations).
