Two Catwalk by TIGI products I’m using right now!

Sleek Mystique Look-Lock Hairspray!

This is another great hairspray by Catwalk. Those guys just get it right every time, don’t they!? I love this hairspray. It is definitely my #1 go-to whenever I need good – solid hold, without looking like I’ve been attacked by Aqua Net. (Oh, remember the Aqua Net days?)

This is the perfect accessory to lock in your silky smooth and sleek hair style. A lightweight formula with a blend of honeysuckle and lychee helps provide superior humidity resistance for a long-lasting, natural hold.

Spray 10-12 inches away from the hair and throughout layers for added natural hold and texture.

Session Series Dry Shampoo!

I love me some dry shampoo. There are (sadly) many days where I shower, but I don’t exactly wash my hair. Who has the time to wash their hair every day!? I love this dry shampoo because it makes my hair feel clean and freshly washed – every time! I love the smell of this stuff. I’m going to start using it as air freshener. I kid, I kid. Anyway, this stuff works great!! Believe me!

This lightweight invisible dry shampoo will instantly refresh the hair and provide remarkable manageability. A blend of rose and sandalwood helps condition the hair while adding volume and texture. Hair is left oil and odour-free with a stylish matte finish.

Shake well, spray all over to refresh while adding volume and texture.
Use as a base or as a finishing touch.

Introducing Nexxus’ new Youth Renewal Line!

Exciting news – Nexxus Salon Hair Care has launched a new collection that combats the signs of aging hair!

I received this line in the mail a couple of weeks ago, and have been working my way through all the products. I like to give hair products a good week or so before I review them, so I can give some honest results – and I have to say these products are really amazing. I love when I find shampoo/conditioner that is GREAT and that I can actually AFFORD. These products fit the bill! My hair feels healthier, looks prettier, and smells better since I started using these products. Seriously, love them.

Demi Lovato debuts drastic new hairdo!

Demi Lovato has made a drastic change!

The singer debut a new, shorter haircut on Twitter on Tuesday night. The 20-year-old chopped off her long hair for a shoulder-length cut. Either that, or she just removed her extensions. Who knows these days.

I think the short hair ages her A LOT…. but it is cute. “I love changing my hair a lot — I think it’s fun,” Demi once told the Allure magazine.

What do you think of her new look?

John Frieda styling products I’m loving right now!

Up until I had my first child, my hair was straight as a board. My hair wouldn’t hold a curl – or a perm – nada. It was very frustrating, especially considering I have a sister with the most beautiful naturally curly hair you’ve ever seen. All I wanted was beautiful curly hair! After my first son was born in 2000, it seems like I woke up the next morning with wavy hair. It has a natural wave to it, but I wouldn’t call it curly. I’ve had shorter hair my entire life – and in the last year or two – I’ve decided to let it grow out. Now that my hair is longer, I have the opportunity to do more with it!

I’ve tried rollers, curling irons, many things. And then this John Frieda curling iron came in the mail, and I was really excited to try it out! The picture above is Erin and I out for a girls night, and I used this curling iron – WITH the John Frieda products listed below! The products were amazing in setting my curls. My curls never relaxed – ALL NIGHT!! I know it’s hard to tell in the picture above, but I had beautiful, natural-looking curls.

I was very nervous about using a wand…but this tool makes it easy! It comes with this little glove so you don’t burn your fingers. It’s easy to use, and the results are beautiful!!
