Are Fancy Shampoos A Waste?

We’ve often purchased shampoos claiming to be “nutrient-rich” and promising healthier hair, only to find that the results are unimpressive and the products act just like normal shampoos. Some suggest that labels advertising nutrient benefits are gobbling your dollars because, in fact, it’s very difficult for the hair shaft to absorb them, and thus benefit from them. How Life Works explains that putting cleansing products with active ingredients on your hair is akin to putting fertilizer on the leaves of a plant instead of the root. When you lather up, “the shampoo molecules [shampoos] contain are too large to penetrate the cells of hair and more importantly the tiny hair follicles where our hair actually grows. They sit atop the follicle until we wash them away.” Interesting. Do you go for the ultra-basic in shampoos? Or are you a loyal fan of certain brands with bells and whistles?

Handbag Confessions: What Are You Hiding In There?

I didn’t realize that I was exhibiting strange purse behavior until a friend asked me for a piece of gum and when I reached into my my black, leather bucket bag, my hand emerged full of coat buttons. She looked at me like she smelled doo-doo. Yeah. For some reason, I always have all the buttons that have fallen off my coats looming around in there. I don’t sew them back on (I don’t even know how to), I don’t throw them away. They just remain forever and always in my purse. I even transfer them when I change purses. I have no idea why. Also, I make crazy person notes to myself on receipts and keep them in my wallet. They are barely legible so I don’t even know why I bother. I can’t be the only one with weird crap in my purse. I asked Frisky staffers what they were hiding in their handbags. How about you? Fess up. What have you got in there? Keep reading »

How To Get Hair Like Kate Moss

As our beauty team made the rounds backstage during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2010, we noticed a bevy of models sporting disheveled and, dare we say, messy strands as they prepared to march the runway.

It was hair that looked undone, in a perfectly done way. After consulting with a few lead hairstylists, we discovered the not-so-surprising motive behind the madness: Kate Moss. Over twenty five years in the limelight, and Moss is still a muse. Read more Keep reading »

Your Closet Ain’t Got Nothing On Tavi’s

Tavi‘s apparently selling off some of her own clothes at Opening Ceremony come Fashion’s Night Out. So the retailer had to ask her, “What does your closet look like?” Tavi responds:

“I recently switched with my dad. I now have half a wall of my parents’ room and half of their walk-in. And it still overflows.”

Whoa! I got yelled at if I left a pair of socks in my parents’ room. (Yet, admittedly, I totally had dreams of taking over their crazy walk-in closet which was the size of a small bedroom.) Think Tavi’s situation is awesome or kinda crazy? [Opening Ceremony] Keep reading »

Nail guru Pattie Yankee worked with Dashing Diva Nails to create the gold, abstract French manicure above for the Cushnie et Ochs spring 2011 fashion show. The gold foil mimics the dripping effect that was present in the collection. But the semi-haphazard application of the foil also gives the nails a grungy, resurrection feeling.

Find out how you can get this abstract French manicure in only two easy steps, after the jump. Keep reading »
