Curly Q: My naturally curly hair gets very dry and limpy whenever I color it. How can I keep my color-treated curls healthy, shiny, and bouncy?
Color-treatments can wreak havoc on your hair if you're not careful, especially on curls which tend to be more prone to dryness. I've met chicas who have literally damaged their curl pattern from the insane amount of bleaching they had done to their tresses. Not to mention, the beach water and constant sun exposure from the summertime can cause further damage to color-treated curls. But don't' stress, Ouidad's Creative Color Director, Ian Dorey offered me a few tips on how you can keep your dyed locks looking healthier and shiner than ever.

I LOVE color-blocking, especially during the spring time. There's just something about coordinating bright, bold colors that really gets me in a cheerful spirit. So it only made sense for me to try to translate this trend onto my nails. I took a trip to SpaNail, a new nail salon spa in N.Y.C.'s SoHo that specializes in natural treatments and nail art for a one of a kind look. Manicurist Maki Mochiyoshi created a super cool design inspired by my tangerine and turquoise color-block necklace (both pictured here). How cool is that? I was so surprised at how easy and do-able the look was too. But don't worry, chicas, I took notes so you can try this spring-friendly style yourselves at home. Check out these easy-breezy steps below!Continue Reading >

I feel like I'm always looking for fun, new ways to wear my hair only to wind up falling back on the same one or two go-to looks. In my case, my hair is always worn down, either straight or curly, and parted to the side. Boring! But now that we're in the middle of spring and with summer on its way, I'm definitely looking to finally shake things up. So I thought I'd finally cough up the courage to try that gorgeous braided headband updo Zoe Saldana wore at the 2010 Glamour Women of The Year Awards, that's still totally in style by the way.
What I love the most about this vintage-inspired milkmaid braid is that it works on almost all hair textures--straight, wavy, or curly. Zoe chose to blow out her strands straight to give the look more of a polished look, but if you're going for something easy and care-free, it would look just as stylish with waves or curls. Check out a few of my tips below to help you replicate this super cool braided hairstyle!Continue Reading >
