‘Do Overs’

My hair is the same length as Anna Ewers’ in the bottom image. This story, by the brilliant hair stylist Guido Palau, is from the May issue of W.
A few days ago, as I was running to a school assembly with my hair tucked into the neck of a turtleneck sweater, I got a number of compliments on my “haircut”. I’m eyeing the top pic and thinking I should give that length a try. TBC

Fekkai Hair Fragrance

I have used Fekkai shampoo and conditioner forever, partly because of how good they smell. So, it’s no surprise that I cannot wait to try their hair fragrances, citron et menthe sounds delicious. The mists also de-frizz, a definite win-win.

Pure Bliss

My hotel in L.A. has a Bliss spa and loaded our bathroom with samples. I’ll admit that I haven’t used a Bliss product in years, but the lemon + sage body wash smells so good that I brought a bottle home and we’re all addicted.

Natural Remedies

We are pretty good about buying organic foods, using natural cleaners, and eating our greens (especially with the new Vitamix), but there were some good bits of advice from nutritionist (and ex model) Rosemary Ferguson in the recent issue of NaP’s The Edit. Airing out clothes when back from the cleaners is new to me, but makes perfect sense.

I’m still on the hunt for a scent for my hair, and this one by Balmain, may be it. With top notes of gardenia and white musk, I will certainly give it a try.

I need this

It is so dry in NYC, my skin is really suffering. If we go skiing this holiday, I’ll need some serious protection. Eight Hour Cream has been around forever, it’s worth a try.

‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ in W

Natural, non blow-dried, hair is on my radar, and was big on the fw13 runways. I’m inspired by this funny piece in W, and although I do my own styling, I’m going to take the dryer-less challenge.

To avoid total withdrawal, I’ll let my hair air-dry just on the weekends. It’s raining today, perfect time to start.

Hair Freshener

I may not wear a lot of makeup, but I do love perfume and spray it even before going to bed. About a year ago hair fragrances popped up on my radar, and just last week the NYT’s covered these four products. I dab perfume on the back of my neck, but a great scent for my hair would be ideal (and kind of sexy). I cannot wait to give these a test-drive.

HYLNDS

Pronounced “highlands”, this new perfume line by D.S. & Durga, a married couple based in Brooklyn, intrigues me. From their website–“HYLANDS invokes those places on our planet where the otherworld seems nigh.  It is set in the mythical border regions of early Northern European cultures – Norse, Orcadian, Scotti, Celtic, Pict, Manx, & Angle.” The Yeatsian sensibility is more than enough to entice me to go to Barneys, the only stockist, and give them a try.
