Hello Beauty Mavens,

I just got word that Pureology Control Twist — a high hold liquid wax — has launched. This would be the newest member of the award-winning Colour Stylist line.

What does this mean? Well, for all of my chic and savvy naturalistas out there — this can be applied to wet/damp (used as a soft conditioning gel to create lasting, tousled waves or on dry hair to create texture, separation and shine) or dry locks, making this a must-have product in this natural beauty junkie’s arsenal.

Control Twist is my new secret style weapon to create a variety of looks. On shorter hair lengths, I can create a chic, separated, piece-y look while on longer hair, it’s perfect for creating a bombshell blowout – think Bridget Bardot meets Marilyn Monroe,” says Ruth Roche, Pureology Colour Ambassador. “It applies and holds like a gel but provides the result and texture of a wax for a beautiful textured look.”

I can’t wait to test out the “hold” on this baby! I think its because Control Twist features Pureology’s exclusive Strengthening Anti Fade Complex® — enhanced with Keravis protein, for strength and to protect your tresses from UV and free radical damage.

I love the fact that its has vegetable-based polymers, to provide caring hold that lasts. And being a mompreneur — with physical demands daily…a lasting ‘hold’ is a must. It also contains unique reflective lipid extracts to deliver maximum radiance,  while olive oil replenishes and nourishes to infuse hair with suppleness &  camelina extract, to form a humidity-resistant barrier to help “lock” in the style and coriander oil, to create a ‘mirror’ surface shine for enhanced color vibrancy.

For you lovelies who are new to Pureology, they offers a complete collection of haircare and styling products that enhance and protect the color vibrancy while ensuring improved condition and healthy shine. From their concentrated Zero Sulfate® Shampoos to conditioners, masques and style products — each and every beauty innovation — contains the exclusive Anti Fade Complex® to maximize color retention from start to finish and deliver our promise of Longer Lasting Hair Color GUARANTEED!® Check out Pureology’s website!

Hello Lovelies,

Get the Look: Summer Golden Goddess Glow


I absolutely love the summertime. It brings about a feeling of joy and happiness. But it can also bring in the harmful rays of the sun — if you’re not properly protected (sunblock is a must-have for every and any season) you can dry out you skin and hair. And as a beauty maven, we can only expect this to be major problems later.

But, the true key to having a flawless golden goddess glow this summer  – is moisture!  I’ve had my fair share of moisturizers…some good, some horrible. That’s why its good to test and try out products for your skin, hair and nails. If you’re a naturalista — like myself, then there are lots of cool brands to pick and choose! And remember, what works for me, might not work for you! But it also just might, so let me save you the trouble :) .

Here’s a fun and GLAMRUS tutorial from one of our favorite beauty brands — I promise to have you glam’d from office geek to red carpet chic in no time!
