  • Haute New Hairstyle: Naya Rivera

    Naya Rivera stepped out in full effect last night at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards in Hollywood. She kept the paparazzi in a frenzy in her leather bra-top and matching leather pants. Her gorgeous waves caught everyone’s eyes as they were glamorous without being too stiff or overdone. Her celebrity stylist Clyde Haygood used her Alice + Olivia leather outfit as inspiration for her loose wavy style. To recreate her look, step by step, read below:

    Step 1 – Prep

    • Clyde applied Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Original Formula ($9.99 at drugstores) to Naya’s wet hair before blow-drying. “We wanted sleek, defined waves. We knew this serum would help give us the sleek, controlled style we were aiming to achieve and keep her hair frizz-free all night long.”


    Step 2 – Style

    • Next, Clyde used a curling iron with a 1 ½ inch barrel. After wrapping each section around the iron, he pinned each curl with a duckbill clip and sprayed Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray (5.99 at drugstores) to set.


    Step 3 – Perfect

    • Once the curls cooled, Clyde carefully brushed hair out and spritzed Frizz-Ease 100% Shine ($5.99 at drugstores) throughout for definition and added shine. “To replicate the look and feel of the leather outfit, we saturated Naya’s hair with as much of the shine spray as possible for that silky and smooth finish.”

  • I’m Currently Obsessed With…The New Black Ombre Kits

    As I am working on the October issue of Juicy Magazine on a Halloween beauty spread, I came across this super cool new nail polish brand called The New Black. I instantly fell in love with their ombre nail kits which come in several shades. I love the concept of an ombre kit. You can use the polishes in a traditional ombre application – going from light to dark all on one nail – painting the entire nail with the lightest shade and then carefully sponging the darker shades ontop until you achieve the desired ombre effect. You can also paint each nail with the corresponding five shades going from light to dark all on one hand.

    Currently you can purchase these cool kits at Sephora stores and online at for $22 each!

    I am loving these polishes! Stay tuned for a review!

  • Simple Weight Loss Tip! It Works!



    People are always looking for better ways to lose weight, and keep it off.  We have all tried endless diet methods that may take off some weight at the beginning, but we always gain it back. Why?  One of the reasons is consistency.  Some give up too easy, while others go on and off of it so often that their body doesn’t know they are on a diet at all.

    Many times the new way is not always the best.  While there are a number of great ideas for losing weight and staying fit out there, the method that may work the best in the long run is one your grandmother may have used: the “push away method.”  It is called this because it simply means that your grandmother knew when to quit eating and push away from the table.

    This sounds uncomprehensibly old-fashioned but here is why it works and how you can try it yourself starting today:

    1) The “push-away” diet involves making your own choices.  While other diets restrict you and give you a feeling of loss of control, the “push away method” lets you eat whatever you want, as long as it in in reasonable proportions.  A famous actress, Farrah Fawcett, liked this way of dieting and this is the way she ate all the time and never had a weight problem.  To implement this way of eating, simply eat a little of whatever you want, but limit the amount.  You don’t even have to count calories with this method, as long as you use common sense. Don’t take out second or third helpings though, as this will defeat the purpose.

  • Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend!

    If you said “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” you’d probably be pretty close to accurate so listen up men! Nothing does it better than diamonds.

    Sure, she may say “I’d like a ruby for my birthday this year,” or perhaps she might add “emeralds are really nice, and I don’t have one.” Really? She is actually saying to you “if you can’t afford a diamond and you must get me something else, okay then.” Trust us, go for the diamonds.

    The nice thing about diamonds is like most things there are varying degrees and the non-super educated on diamonds woman isn’t really going to care so much about the quality, the scratches, the points and so forth. She is going to care you got her a diamond! Or better yet “diamonds.”
