Aiming for Perfection Expectations vs. Reality

By Brigitte Evans

The universe surely has one heck of a sense of humor. How else to explain all those times we took it upon ourselves to achieve greatness and ended up looking like something you would find in a meme. Yes, our lack of skill may have something to do with it, but how is it that things look so good when we see them on someone else, and then when we try them, it’s a wretched mess? It has to be the universe standing in our way, it simply has to. Among numerous life fails, we have handpicked the ones that are the most relatable, and once you see one of them you can’t help but laugh along thinking ‘well, at least I’m not alone’.

This spring, however, it’s all about icy hair. Think pastel, but with a shimmery twist. Here are some ideas guaranteed to make you want to run to your local salon, stat. Continue reading

5 Ways To Keep Bleached Hair Healthy

By Rachela Forcellese

I myself, much like De, fell in love with the silver ombré hair trend and decided to give it a try. The ombré is an excellent hairstyle because it requires very little salon maintenance. It can grow out and still look pretty much the same. Unfortunately, committing to this hairstyle meant bleaching my hair more than once. Bleach is extremely damaging to the hair as it strips it of its color instead of directly dyeing over it like regular hair dye.

Although the ombré style is great and requires very little in-house upkeep, I do have to put an extra amount of care into my at-home hair routine. I worked hard this past year to keep my hair moisturized, as I wasn’t about to give up my hair health for a single trend. Through that maintenance, I’ve discovered these 5 techniques that, despite all the bleaching, have helped to keep my hair as healthy as possible:   Continue reading

I have thick hair. Not even regular thick hair. But like, “I shaved half of my entire head and I still have a full head of hair” hair.

Hairdressers love to pull a big fistful of my hair in their hands and tell me how much I have. Continue reading

In case you’ve been living under a rock, there’s a new ombré trend on the proverbial streets, and it’s none other than silver. A couple of years ago, #GrannyHair was making waves on social media, and girls all over the country were dyeing their hair grey – much to the surprise of older women who were routinely going to the salon to make their hair anything but grey. The silver/grey ombré is essentially a happy medium – it’s not a full commitment to embracing the full silver foxette look, but it’s a start. I saw it on Instagram myself a few days ago and knew I had to try it.  Continue reading
