Normally, I am the type of chick that always has a few bobbypins on her person at all times. Alas, I managed to fly to Los Angeles without a single one. This is mainly problematic when it comes to washing my face at night. I have bangs and I don’t want to get them wet, so I usually pin them back during my face-washing routine. I tried doing a towel turban, but when my hair is dry, it’s too slippery. WHAT TO DO?!?!?! Last night, rather tipsy, I came up with a solution: I grabbed a pair of panties — clean, natch – and slipped them over my head like a cloth headband, pulled it back, and voila! Bangs out of my face. I felt this was ingenious enough to share. Carry on. Keep reading »

True, Gross Story: My Bikini Waxer Was A Double-Dipper

It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of body hair. It’s also no secret that times are hard. So lately, I’ve been on quest to find a more affordable bikini waxer because it costs about $72 for a Brazilian wax and 20 percent tip at the spa I’ve been patronizing for the last three years. I considered going back to the Aveda Institute, the place where I had my first wax, but the students there don’t do Brazilians, and a well-groomed Afro down there doesn’t appeal to me. Then, LivingSocial had a $20-Brazilian wax deal and I was delighted to purchase it. Too bad it didn’t occur to me that Brazilians are best performed at establishments, by whom you know because the waxer was a double-dipper!

If you’re a fan of “Tabatha’s Salon Takeover,” a fan of waxing, or have basic logic in regards to hygiene, then you know that waxers should use a new wooden tong each time they scoop out hot wax. The waxer I went to on Tuesday did not. Keep reading »

Love At First Stroke: OPI’s “Play The Peonies” Nail Polish

It’s been years since I’ve fallen in love with a pink nail lacquer. I usually prefer variations of gray, which are season-less, or some sort of red, which a friend says has become my signature. But I was curious about the new, limited-edition Nice Stems! by OPI collection of shades of pink, from pale frosty pink to rich fuchsia. I was initially drawn to “I Lily Love You,” because who doesn’t love a tint of pink with flecks of glitter? But last week, I wanted something new, so I tried “Play the Peonies,” a soft, frosty pink from the same collection. And what do you know? I fell in love. Keep reading »

Quick Tip Of The Day: Change Your Shampoos

This hair tip might not be anything too innovative, but it’s something so basic that it’s easily forgotten. If your hair has been looking dull and colorless lately, switch your shampoo! This applies especially to people with dyed hair or highlights, as buildup from your old shampoo will darken your locks and make you feel sad about the state of your roots. Changing shampoos helps to remove this buildup and can magically make your hair seem a shade lighter. Added advice: during times when your roots are growing out, avoid straightening serums or other greasy products that will encourage dark, oily residue.
