Coloring your hair outside of a well trained, professional hand could be very dangerous. Case in point, at 15 years of age I bought a box of hair color off the super market shelf thinking the models hair color was what mine would look like. Oh boy was I wrong. Instead of golden blonde it turned out a rusty orange. In fact I looked like a leopard. From that day nobody without a diploma has ever laid a drop of color on my head. 

 

Times change though, and over the years many brands have come out with great touch up kits or products to help keep your color vibrant and free from fade until your next appointment. One of the trusted stand-outs to fight regrowth is the Oscar Blandi Colore Pen as seen in In Touch magazine. This industry and celebrity approved touch up and highlighting pen is brushed on to temporarily disguise roots, grays and also enhances highlights with a natural looking finish. You can keep it in your purse and touch up when you catch yourself in some bad lighting. Simply choose the right color for you and get your  instant color fix!

 What differentiates summer style perfumes from the other seasons?

Our body chemistry (as well as the Earth's) changes during the summer. It's warmer out so we change our activities accordingly. When it's hot and humid, light and fresh fragrances tend to be more suitable for the season. Fruity florals or citrus aromatics are refreshing and carefree.

 

How do we choose the perfect summer fragrance?

This depends on your activity but for the office, something watery and subtle would be appropriate but weekends and going out at night, something sparkly and juicy would be more fun. 

 

I've heard that eau de toilette can be a better choice than an eau de parfum because they're lighter based. However, the lighter they are I find the more times I have to apply. What's the solution?

 

There's a misconception that fragrances should last all day but I prefer to carry a purse spray to spritz throughout the day. It's like asking the sunlight to stay the same from morning through the day. Nobody is that robotic. Clothing gets wrinkled and worn as you sit and walk around. Refresh your fragrance when you powder your nose and add fresh coat of lipstick. 

 

Eau de toilette EDT and eau de parfum EDP refer to the strength of perfume concentrate and alcohol. There's more alcohol and less concentrate in EDT so the dilution gives the wearer a lighter impression. I think this is a great solution if a person tends towards the heavier florientals or gourmands normally. Then you can still enjoy this genre of fragrance in the summer rather than trying to wear a different style of perfume. But if you like cologne style aromatics or citrus fragrances, then EDP is fine even in the summer. If you like floral musks or powdery fragrances, then choose the less intense EDT otherwise, it can be cloying in humid weather. If it's a dry climate with coastal breeze (west coast) then EDP is fine.

 

What are some of our summer inspired fragrances that have caught your eye this season?

In my own collection, I was surprised to find that I fell in love with U4EAHH. Even though it's a global best seller, it was one of my creations that I never wore because it is usually turns sour on me. But I've been in Tokyo for the last few weeks and the climate here is quite humid and the fragrance smells amazing on me. The new Rodin olio lusso Perfume also sounds amazing to me with neroli and jasmine.
