Goody Spin Pin

I have been dying to get my hands on a set of Goody spin pins for some time now. Every time I remember to look for them my store is sold out. Well my mailman was the harbinger of gifts yesterday bringing me the ultimate in functional hair accessories the Goody spin pin.

I am truly amazed at how well they work and how easy and fun it is to create looks. You just twirl your hair into a bun and tuck in the ends then twist one spin pin in from the top one from the bottom. The coating makes them slide right in and once they are in place your hair is set I tried everything and the pins stayed put. Once its time to take them out you just spin them counter clockwise and they come right out. Time for me to go I have more spin pin hair experiments!

Zooey Deschannel’s new Rimmel London Ad

The adorable Zooey Deschanel looks gorgeous in the latest ad for the new Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick. The lipstick comes with an improved formula and new, deluxe packaging!

“Fun, pretty and hip.” This is how charismatic Zooey Deschanel describes “the London look”. Gorgeous Zooey Deschanel was named brand ambassador of Rimmel London in March last year. Now, the famous British beauty company has released the new Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick ad with the beautiful singer/actress looking absolutely adorable, girlish, yet very seductive wearing the Heart Breaker shade.

The “(500) Days of Summer” star was considered as being the perfect image for the label. “We wanted to add an American voice. We have an American beauty with London confidence,” said Rick Goldberg, vice president of marketing for Rimmel London.

Zooey Deschanel, who is the face of a new lash accelerating mascara, a perfecting powder foundation and of the lasting lipstick, said that, “I love makeup. I’ve been wearing different beauty products for years. I shop everywhere and I love the fact you can get such great looks at a reasonable price. I want to be associated with products that are accessible for everyone.”

I love Zooey, and I think she’s the perfect ambassador for the brand!

Jennifer Aniston cut her hair to avoid the ‘Real Housewives’ look

Jennifer Aniston’s longtime hairdresser Chris McMillian tells Allure.com why he decided to cut Jen’s famous long hair into a short sassy bob. Hint: He doesn’t want his client looking like the ladies of ‘The Real Housewives’ – any of them.

“I’m loving bobs again. I love the girl in the YSL ads. It’s a sexy look. The reason that I’m loving a bob at the moment… There are so many long, layered hairstyles and-don’t get me wrong, I love that. But The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills all have that. You know what I mean? And what’s the opposite direction you can go in?” McMillan said.

“It’s nice to take the extensions out of the hair and do something more natural. It’s gotten out of hand. But I can’t stop watching it.”

McMillan calls Jen’s new do a hairline bob, because it follows the jaw down.

“It’s shortened in back and longer in front. It’s angled and inspired by Vidal Sassoon haircuts and Julie Christie from ‘Shampoo’,” he told Allure.

“It was just time for a change. We had a blast doing it. And we’ve always liked this haircut. It’s about keeping things simple. The way Celine and Calvin Klein and Jil Sander and all these clothing lines are keeping it really simple and chic. I really feel that fashion right now. All the styles are back to when I first started doing hair. And I love it.”

I know a lot of people say her new cut makes her look older, but I love it. I think she looks great!
