What do you like about your hair?
I love my waves and natural dark color, and that they pair well with pale skin and red lipstick - which is to say, it feel s very much like how I see myself: a little classic, a little wild and free.
What do you like about how Rubi styled your hair?
Rubi is great at hearing what you want and making you look your best. Her cuts compliment the texture of my hair and grow out extremely well. It's low maintenance and really feels like my personality.
Who is your style icon?
I love styles from the 60s and 70s, and classic women liek Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, and Catherine Deneuve.
What is your next travel destination and why?
I just returned from Nashville, which was pretty fantastic!
I'm having a pop-up hair salon at Wanderlust this Sunday, May 12th in Paris.
Wanderlust is an outdoor terrace overlooking the Seine. Every Sunday they have free yoga and pilates, a great brunch, outdoor market, and DJ set. I'll be cutting hair at the outdoor market starting at 2pm. There will also be vintage clothing stands, a florist, a barber, nails, and massages.
Come do some yoga, get a haircut, and enjoy a drink with friends!
Email email@example.com for an appointment. Haircut + blow out: 50€ Braid: 30€
I don't usually do posts like this but I had to share my favorite looks from last night's red carpet.
*UPDATE: "I hope a growing market can be created for forest products, such as wild
rubber, as it essentially could protect the rainforest by making it
worth more standing than cut down. Knowing she is passionate about the
rainforest, I asked Vivienne Westwood if she would be able to make a
dress using rubber for this year’s Met Ball to show its potential
versatility, and she and her partner Andreas made something very special
for me to wear. This isn’t for a consumer audience but who knows what
we can do in time." - Lily Cole

I was first introduced to coconut oil as a hair product while traveling in India. I bought a bottle there but I don't think it was pure oil because it smelled terrible. Fast-forward to a couple of months ago when I was staying with a friend in New York and she was on a coconut oil kick! She used it on her hair, skin, and practically every single meal she prepared.
Well guys, now I'm her and I am putting coconut oil on everything, especially my hair. I have really thick curly hair that can get unruly fast if I'm not using the right hair products. Coconut oil is the only product I've been using lately. Here is how:
Thick, frizz-prone hair: I apply a nickle-sized amount of coconut oil on towel-dried hair - starting with the ends, working my way up to the roots and letting it air dry. Fine hair: Same as above but with a much smaller amount of oil. A little goes a long way. After a blow out on all hair types: Work a tiny amount in your hands and apply it to your ends to give them a little definition and shine.
Buy coconut oil here. <---this link is for two jars because you'll need one for your kitchen and one for your bathroom!
Do you love Fei Fei Sun's bangs from this editorial as much as I do? Want to copy them? Here's the hairstylist lingo to use so your coiffeur gives you the right look.
First of all, these bangs are best for stick-straight hair that has medium to thick strands. They are quite short so you should have them cut above your eyebrows (as if they're flirting with the idea of being baby bangs). There's no need to take a huge bang section because growing out bangs that go all the way to the back of your head sucks. A normal bang section will do, but be sure to get them cut with a razor. There are a lot of different ways to cut hair with a razor so be sure to see someone who's well trained in razor cutting. These are quite heavy, blunt bangs but since it's done with a razor, it's not a Sassoon-like line, which is what I think makes them so interesting.

I love grey hair. In fact, my blue hair has faded to an awesome blue-ish grey tone, and I like it even more than the blue! I wish I naturally had a full head of beautiful silver hair like Carmen dell'Orefice or Kristen McMenamy. If you're not like me and dread the moment you get your first grey hair then here's my biggest piece of advice to you: DON'T PLUCK OUT YOUR GREYS.
I know it's tempting because you don't want them there but grey hair is slightly more coarse than your normal hair and plucking it doesn't mean it'll be gone forever. Instead it's going to grow back and those stubborn greys are going to stick straight out of your head making them more noticeable and unmanageable. Just let them be (I assure you nobody else notices them until you're at least 10% grey) and if they bug you that much, then it's time to start visiting your hair colorist. Or be like Carmen and other beautiful silver-haired women and embrace it. :)
