John Galliano is known to push the fashion envelope and boy did he! The s/s 2010 runway show at Paris Fashion Week was very, well, Galliano. Large GaGa-like bows, with fur covered vest, skirts, and jackets dominated the runway. The over-embellished-everything, was just what we expected from Galliano and simply fabulous!
This eyeliner is a must have in your makeup bag! After trying several dozens of different pencil, liquid and gel liners, there seems to be no question as to what takes the cake. This multi-award winning formula (Elle, Allure, and In Style magazines) gives easy control but a line that willl literally stay all day. I love this liner, hands down the best gel liner around! ($21 available at Nordstrom, or 102 AED at Bobbi Brown, Dubai Mall or Harvey Nichols)
Chanel’s showcase for s/s 2010 in Paris showing off their signature Chanel tweed with more than a hint of fur. The runway was covered with fur bags, boots, and jackets. PETA fans hold your paint! Deisgn genius, Karl Lagerfeld chose faux fur this season–more than one reason to fall in love with this gorgeous collection!
Summer sun will soon be shining on our doorstep, but with the sunshine comes the humidity and then (cue 1920’s horror film background music) FRIZZ! We’ve all heard of the Brazilian Keratin Treatment and if you haven’t done it already, I’m sure you’ve at least been a bit curious as to what the hype is all about.
I personally never thought I could benefit from this treatment as my hair is pin-straight and I was frightened to lose volume. But as a licensed cosmetologist (providing the service at a very reasonable price ), I had to at least try it out for myself. My verdict: Keratin is great for EVERYONE!
Keratin is the main protective substance in our hair. Adding more keratin to our hair improves each strand inside and out. Keratin will not only make your hair shinier, healthier and stronger, but it also protects from environmental damage caused by the sun that cause hair color to fade.
The great thing about the Brazilian Keratin Treatment is it’s just a reconditioning treatment –shocking—a salon procedure that gives you beautiful, silky hair, without the damage! BEWARE: Most Keratin Treatments contain the carcinogen, formaldehyde. So, say no to brain tumors and consult your stylist to ensure they are using formaldehyde-free products. These formaldehyde-free products are significantly more costly to the stylist/salon. So, expect the formaldehyde-free Keratin Treatment to be a bit pricier than other salons that use products containing the cancer-causing chem. If any time to splurge on the higher end product, this is it.
Expect silky locks for 3-5 months, depending on your products and how often you wash. Blow out time cut in half! Frizz-nonestistent. Without effort, tight curls will be naturally wavy. Waves will be naturally straight.
