When I’m not busy picking bald patches into my scalp, I like to look at hair tutorials and screw around with my locks.

Katy Perry, dare I say it, is rocking a rather subtle looking new ‘do. The pop star has bleached away most of the hot pink hair she’s been wearing for the last few months in favor of a white blonde bob with a powder pink hue. I think the look is totally sleek and sophisticated, but still very her. I like! What say you? (Oh, and despite the rumors, it seems that her and hubby Russell Brand are doing a-okay. Glad to hear/see it!)

In high school, I’d take $10 of my allowance to get a wash and set at the Dominican hair salon, and the stylist always wrapped my hair when it was done in order to keep it straight. When I was ready, I’d fluff it out for the day, re-wrap it at night, and cover with a scarf. There was no flat-ironing, curling, brushing, or braiding in my routine, and I loved that. I pretty much knew what my hair would look like on a daily basis. Even now, my locs are extremely low-maintenance, leaving me more time to focus on what I’ll wear on a given day. Keep reading »
