Long gone are my middle school days of Manic Panic and Kool-Aid experimentations. But, when I went to the salon last week, I found myself insanely jealous of the girl in the chair next to me who was getting her long locks dyed an ombre magenta. Then my stylist took out a wondrous, magic tool: Kevin Murphy’s Color.Bug. Available in three colors — purple, pink, and orange — the little capsules dispense wash-out pigments to your hair. All you need do is apply a product to dampen the hair first (so color sticks to it), and rub the Bug into your strands. Washes out after one night. If I had longer hair, I’d definitely be into this. For short-haired gals, it might be overpowering. What do you think? [Kevin Murphy]

For all intents and purposes, Sun-In is hydrogen peroxide and water, but what do you want? I was 12. Read more…

Ever since my totally no big deal (!!!) appearance on “The Today Show,” I have been experiencing completely irrational low self-esteem when it comes to my hair. The hairstylist did such an amazing job crafting my thick hair into voluminous waves and I have been desperate to recreate the look on my own. I am embarrassed to admit that I have bought two curling irons (with 1.25-inch and 2-inch barrels) and a whole mess of velcro rollers but have utterly failed at accomplishing anything other than intense frustration. But then a coworker said she had the perfect tool for me to try — the InStyler! And dudes? It’s a life-changer. Keep reading »
