Pump up the volume. Go big or go home. The big tease. Bigger is better. When the majority of us attempt to do 'big' hair it can end badly with knotted hair slightly resembling a rat's nest or being caught in a hurricane. It doesn't usually resemble this gorgeous head of hair we have below. Thanks to celebrity hair stylist Serge Normant (who created this voluminous style) the steps have been easily broken down and only a few styling products are needed.
Spray Meta Lush Volumizer from root to tips on wet hair.
Blow dry with a middle sized round brush, giving as much lift to the roots as possible.
Use a one inch barrel curling iron and begin curling hair section by section.
Pin each curl to the base of the head.
Once all done, use Meta Luxe Hair Spray (with a focus on the roots).
Let it set for a few minutes, unwrap, and brush through the curls. If hair looks too curly use the round brush again and soften with the blow dryer.
Tease the top where you want the volume to stay and overlap certain sections to give a looser feel to the overall look.
Spray for Shine and Meta Luxe Hair Spray to secure.

The Zoe Report gave a hail to the hair this morning in their newsletter, giving big props to Philip B's new OUD Royal Forever Shine Shampoo & Conditioner! This just landed on our shelves and we too are amazed at at the transformative properties in this fabulous duo. If you're after the 'glossy-glossy' like Fergie says, these products will produce a shinier, silkier and more bouncy head of hair. The conditioner is full of nourishing ingredients (but also remains free of sulfates and sodium chloride), and also includes the first thing of it's kind, time-released botanical hydrators! They also made mention of Philip B's Lavender Hair & Body Shampoo that protects and preserves hair color as well as giving a much needed deep cleanse.

Green is all the rage this season, from bright Avatar green to the palest of opaque. With a little hint of bronzed skin, RGB's Dew is brought to life with a pale pistachio hue.
Recently featured on InStyle.com as part of their 'Hottest Spring Polishes,' it was in great company along with other colorful shades like Butter London's Disco Biscuit (tropical hot pink) and Deborah Lippmann's On The Beach (Riviera blue).

The annual Met Ball is by far the biggest night in fashion with celebrities, models, designers and the 'style set' coming out dressed to impress. Hosted by Vogue magazine, this event is known to be the fashion world's best red carpet event as well as the top social event in New York. If you'd like to attend next years you better start saving, tickets are a whopping $25,000 a pop with all proceeds going to the Costume Institute. Enough of the details, let's get on to the good stuff, i.e who wore it best, who gave good face and who was red carpet road kill….
By far the most jaw dropping, stunning look of the night from head to toe was actress Camilla Belle. She hasn't done to many movies as of late but she is known for her fantastic style and last night she nailed it in a Ralph Lauren Collection ivory tulle beaded dress with champagne python sandals. Truly the "Belle of the Ball' I immediately fell in love with her dark wine stained lip, bronzed cheeks and brooding brows. Get her wine kissed lips with Jouer's Hydrating Lipstick in Phoebe. Kate Bosworth also rocked the typically winter trended dark stained lip with a slicked back braided chignon and flapper style feather dress.
Jessica Alba sparkled in a grecian style, burnished gold Michael Kors gown. One of the few who actually wore her hair down, it still looked elegant with a delicate pin curl set wave and again a dark lip! Are we on to a new summer trend here?
Cutie pie Emma Stone looked absolutely adorable in a red Lanvin dress with custom designed crystal flowers. I thought her hair perfectly matched the playfulness of her dress with a messy up do embellished with a crystal hair pin.

It seems the major hair trend from the 2012 Met Ball was the slick back! Bring back the mousse as the wet look seems to be all the rage when paired with an assortment of stylish chignons. From Kate Bosworth's classical braided bun, Gwyneth Paltrow's centre parted up do, to Gisele's matchy-matchy slick back that was fashionably coordinated with beau Tom Brady.
Not only does this type of hairstyle help accentuate the beauty of a rounded shoulder and collarbone, but it also helps us look younger. Pulling back the hair from your face in a tight elastic is like giving yourself a mini face lift. Beautiful actress Rosario Dawson had her chignon done by one of the greats, celebrity hairstylist to the stars Oscar Blandi, and we get the scoop on how to re-create this look ourselves:
Step 1: Prep the hair with Oscar Blandi Volumizing Spray.
Step 2: Blow-dry the hair with an emphasis on the roots to create lift and a solid foundation, but leave the ends of the hair damp.
Step 3: Create a left side part and pull the hair back tightly into a ponytail just above the nape of the neck.

It seems like everywhere I look soap is gracing the pages of many beauty spreads. Soap style cleansers are back in a big way and not just any kind. Black soap is all the rage because of it's ability to heal problematic skin, remove scars caused by acne and an allover great pimple preventer for oilier skin types.
One of the best ones on the market is Shea Terra Organic's Rose Hips Black Soap. Although this is in a liquid form rather than soap, experts say this can be better since soap bars have more of a tendency for bacteria build-up. Customers as well as spa professionals have said they've never seen a product work faster than this one. This 100% natural product is a mix of rose hips and African herbs that are filled with skin renewing and anti-oxidant properties. Think of it as a microdermabrasion treatment without the abrasion or the cost! It effectively and gently breaks down dead skin layers to reveal a cleaner, calmer and brightened skin!Read More »
Bvlgari is known for it's elegant, beautiful and expensive jewelry line. For those of us who can't afford the bling, you can still enjoy the feeling of high end luxury through their stunning fragrance line. Best of all, this luxury is totally affordable!
One of my personal favorites is Bvlgari's Mon Jasmin Noir. Otherwise known as seduction in a bottle, this refined fragrance has notes of angel wing jasmine, vibrant wood and musky nougatine. As the sun goes down slip into a slinky cocktail dress and splash on the woody evening sister fragrance Jasmin Noir. With summer right around the corner Bvlgari's Omnia Coral captures the floral fruity tone of the tropics and far off oceans. Also inspired by the shimmering hues of red coral both in the gorgeous bottle and notes of pomegranate and goji berries. Awaken your senses with one spritz and you'll be hooked forever...Read More »
