Straight is Sexy This Spring — Try Profound Beauty!‏

Profound Beauty just sent me some samples of their Linear Serum and Cream to see if I could tame my curly hair. I  really like this line from Profound Beauty, the Linear Serum was a definite standout. With fine hair a lot of straightening serums can weight down my hair and leave it greasy. The Profound Beauty Linear Serum has the power to tame my flyaways and help straighten my hair and its never left feeling or looking greasy.

My favorite thing about these two straightening products, you can use them even on towel dried hair no heat styling required. As much as I love my hair being stick straight I just don’t want to spend that much time with my blow dryer and hot iron everyday . I use a dab of the Linear Cream and Serum and comb through and even with air drying my hair stays straight and no flyaways!

This season get the magnificent mane you’ve always dreamed of! The Profound Beauty Stylist Linear Serum gives a sleek and shiny finish to hair for free flowing style with natural movement. This light weight silky serum restores moisture, imparts intense shine, protects against heat styling and fights frizz. Simply distribute evenly through towel-dried hair and blow dry to perfection.

For thicker more coarse hair, try the Profound Beauty Stylist Linear Cream. It smoothes and softens resistant hair for controlled straight styles that will last all season long!

Legal documents were subsequently filed and the case was sent to trial – but Kelis failed to attend the hearing on Monday, according to

How to Get At-Home Hair Color Right by BellaSugar

I was reading one of my favorite beauty sites – Bella Sugar – and they had some great tips for achieving that perfect at-home color! I dye my own hair (cheaper, easier) so these tips are really great! And I absolutely ADORE Fekkai, their glossing cream is the only hair styling product I use!

Even Frédéric Fekkai has made home hair color cheap, with its Salon Color ($30) line, but it doesn’t mean your results have to be any less impressive than salon color. To help you do it right when you’re doing it at home, a few tips can make a world of difference. To see my home color solutions, just keep reading.

  • If you’re trying to choose between an all-over color and highlights, do highlights. Highlights add more dimension to your hair, giving it the multitonal look that salon hair color has. Highlights are also more subtle than all-over color, and since you can grow them out without major roots, they’re much less commitment.
  • If you highlight, keep the pieces fine, never chunky. Unless you want to look like Ginger Spice circa 1998, you should highlight many small sections of hair as opposed to a few larger sections. Fine highlights look more natural.
  • Don’t go more than two shades lighter or darker. This is a general hair rule, and when you’re doing the color yourself, it’s smart to play it safe.
  • If you’re going darker or only one level up, try a semipermanent color. Permanent hair color is a big commitment, and the ammonia in it can damage your hair. Semipermanents, on the other hand, use a gentler chemical, MEA, and it’s easy and inexpensive to put the color back in every couple of months. If you’re not sure you want to go with your new shade indefinitely, semipermanents are also a good move.
  • Pick a shade that’s good with your undertones. Cool skin tones look best in cool colors, which will be labelled as such, or as “beige” or “ash,” and warm colors in shades like “golden” or “copper.”
  • Natural or neutral shades look good on all skin tones, so if you’re confused, they’re a safe bet.
  • A simple tip, but easy to forget: wear an old t-shirt or button-up top while you color. Having to pull a garment off over your head can ruin your clothing and your color.
