Hey Lauryn, hold on….you’ve got something above your eyes.

The usually reclusive Lauryn Hill hit the paparazzi line at Plaza Athenee in NYC tonight looking a little hairier than normal! She made an appearance for the Tanzania Education Trust New York Gala hosted by President Jakaya Kikwete of the United Republic of Tanzania.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Debuts Another New Hairdo

Newly single Jennifer Love Hewitt ditched her bob for longer hair extensions while shopping in Beverly Hills Tuesday afternoon.

The actress, 31, chopped off her hair last month after announcing her split from boyfriend (and Ghost Whisperer costar) Jamie Kennedy.

Of her short, bouncy curls, Hewitt told, “I needed to feel lighter! We just finished season five of [Ghost Whisperer], and I was just ready for a change.”

She denied it was a post-breakup ‘do.

“I actually cut my hair before,” she told Us. “It’s just that I had to have long hair on the show, so I’d already done the haircut and we were just clipping in some pieces to keep it going. I just happened to finish filming and unveiled the haircut around the same time as the unveiling of the other news so now it’s become my ‘breakup haircut.’”

So how is she coping with the split?

“Yoga, 72 hours of ice cream … it’s all good!” she joked to Us. She’s also “trying to follow” the advice of her new book, The Day I Shot Cupid.

What do you think of her new look?

Go here for more information, tips and tools and to pick the color that’s right for you!

Ok here goes my road test of Garnier Herbashine is it really as easy as 10 minutes? I read over the insert and have all my goodies ready to go.

Goodbye roots!

Easy enough application I applied to my roots and then worked through my hair.

10 minutes later I am in the showering washing out, can’t wait to see my new color.

Roots are gone, I love that it was so quick and easy!

Garnier Herbashine was a super quick 10 minutes and my haircolor came out great, very even and super shiny.

Overall I am happy with the way the color came out, though it was a bit darker than I expected. Based on the color I used (800 Medium Natural Blonde) I thought it would lighten my roots to match my highlights but I think it darkened my hair a little . Its still a great blonde shade though and the roots are long gone and my hair is so soft and shiny.

Another great thing about this ammonia free formula from Garnier, Herbashine  didn’t have a harsh scent or burn my scalp like other haircolors I have used in the past. that I have felt from lightening my hair. The 10 minute formula was perfect for a busy mom like me. I was able to drop off my daughter at school, workout and color my hair and still be on time to pick her up, Love it!

I just read about the new Goody Ouchless Flex Pressure Free Headbands and said prove it. A headband that will fit the masses and me, I would like to see that.

Well prove it they did I was just sent a Goody Ouchless Zig Sag headband to try and it really is painless! The headband is still firm but has give on the sides so it doesn’t squeeze my head. And the tips of the headband are cool little bendable soft rubber pieces so you can adjust tighter or looser to fit your head.
