Movie adaptations are on the rise, and bestsellers are getting trendier and trendier. These days you’re just not cool if your bookshelf doesn’t include the latest best seller turned movie, so why not get your history buff Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, or Jane Austen lover, Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. Trendy novels are a great holiday gift idea that’s relatively cheap, and though I am a hard copy purist, digital copies for the Nook and Kindle tend to be even less money. You can even schedule a wireless delivery on Christmas day! Continue reading →
Last week, I asked you guys whether you would ever wear Printed Hair Extensions – you guys protested a loud NO WAY! C’mon, not even for Halloween??
Regardless, I got some of my own extensions – no, not the print kind, sorry, but they are colored, and they have definitely prompted my interest in hair extensions. I have been seriously craving a splash of color in my hair, especially with all the bold color moves we’ve been seeing lately from Katy Perry to Lauren Conrad to ombre color all over the fall runways. However, if you’re like me, you might not want color all the time, especially if you work in an office or like to change up your look a lot.
To be honest, I have no idea where I’ll end up wearing these, but Halloween is right around the corner, so all of you gals wanting to add some craziness to your hair but are afraid of temporary dyes or are brunette like me, check these out!
A word to the warning, the extension shown in my picture is actually 4 separate extensions, they are each about 3/4ths an inch in width. It gives you a lot of flexibility in placement, and you can also mix a few different colors together seamlessly. I am such a fan of how easy these are to use, plus you can hot iron or curl them.
Any of you love extensions? What kinds have you used?
We are now closing in on the end of the first week of October. Did you know that in addition to be my favorite month of the year, and also the month of the greatest holiday ever, Halloween, that October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Yes, October just got even greater! I didn’t think it was possible either.
In addition to all of your favorite products coming out with pink versions of themselves (I do believe I even bought a pink Britta water filter around this time last year, how can you resist, really), us beauty and hair crazed gals can indulge in pink in another way. Streak for Cancer is a fun way to show your support for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
By becoming either a participating salon that will host “streaking” events, or by getting “streaked” yourself, you will be raising awareness and funds for the cure. Streak for Cancer involves adorning your hair with pink tinsel streaks, which are chemical free and can be washed, blow dried, and styled just like your normal hair. What a fun way to show your support, and kid friendly!
To find out more, visit Streakforcancer.org to find an event near your or if you are a hairdresser, to find out how to become a participating salon! Also, visit them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter.
